CCG# 206 ~we all bleed red~

Hi my crafty friends....

The challenge this week over at the Color Combos Galore is a fun one.  We are wrapping up our month of celebrating all things beach with a calming, monochromatic palette. Our Designer's Challenge is a Focus on Recipe and is inspired by various elements in the Inspiration Photo--use the following on your project: wood, a title in capital letters, a striped item, a transparency, and create the effect of a ledge on your project.

Here's my take.....

and some close-ups...

I hope everyone is safe on the East Coast!  Have a great one.

Welcome to the Creative Soup "Fun in the Sun' Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creative Soup "Fun in the Sun" Crop and Blog Hop.

We all decided to get together and have blog hop with a twist! Each member will have a part of a recipe to make a layout. Go around to each of the blogs in the hop, and you'll have all the instructions for a great challenge! Put at least 6 of the recipe elements on a layout/project, and link it back to the challenge thread HERE.

My recipe element is to include stars (either punched, cut, drawn, etc.) on your layout.

Take a look at Laura's layout, for a great example of this. This layout is from the 5.9 Mojo Monday Challenge - Get Sketchy, Anna Bowkis/Pencil Lines. 
Here is a link to that Mojo Monday Challenge MM Challenge.

Here is Laura's layout....

I was lovin' the star theme so much, I created a layout using my totally awesome Martha Stewart star punch. 

I love using the negative of punches, packaging, stickers, etc.  They can be used in so many creative ways. 

I took this photo several years ago on a trip between PA and OH.  It was a cold January day, and the only sound at the Flight 93 memorial was the wind.

Here's some more closeups.

and here is the finished layout...

I can't wait to see how you incorporate stars with the recipe!  Please leave a comment below so I know that you were here to get this ingredient to the recipe.  Now, On to the HOP!!!!!

Here is the list of participants in the hop and links to their blogs; up next is Jenifer

And if you happen to get lost, remember you can always go back to the original challenge thread!

2nd day of shares.... :)

Happy Thursday everyone!  As promised, I have alot of projects and things to share, so here's day two!

First share - If you haven't checked it out yet, The Paper Bakery has released sneak peaks of their August kit.  it looks totally amazing!  Here's a little peak to get y'all excited about it.  :)

Isn't that mini album adorably awesome?

For more details, click HERE.

Now on to more shares...

This past week, my boys came to Utah to visit me before school started up again.  We made a short trip to Moab to see the amazing natural sites at Arches National Park and Dead Horse State Park.  I thought it would be fun to share some pictures from the trip.  (I'm sure you will see some of these in future layouts)

Stay tuned for more fun stuff tomorrow and Friday.  :)
