{top shot...

Using up a bit more of my Feb. Studio Calico kit. This time featuring Coe Waylon. He is growing up so darn fast. He loves to hunt, shoot his gun & his bow. Anything that puts him next to his daddy, he's right there.


He's a darn good little shot and takes it very seriously. He's a bit like his mama in the "do something 110% or don't do it at all" mind set. Sometimes that's okay, sometimes not.

Today, I {made} myself sit down and get my tax papers in order to take to our accountant. It's something that I put off until the hubby finally says, "go...I'll watch the kids, just do it". So, tax papers were completed and I decided I needed a reward. Hee! So I got out my SC {Candy Shoppe} kit and created this quick layout.
I based it on THIS fun sketch from {Get Your Sketch On - #7}. Check them out! They have fun weekly sketches with prizes!

A bit more about {GYSO}-
Bree is the brilliant sweet gal behind it. We are on TheStoryMatters together and she is just so great! Love her! They also have a sketch site for you card makers too: Get Sketchy!

Do you love a good sketch?

And...GCD is having a design team call...

Motivated team members

Bring your personality to the team. We love drama free, fun, and outgoing gals.
Ability to work fast, if needed (around show times we might need extra work done and working fast is a plus :)
Assignments turned in on time.
Scrapbooking is all about being creative, capturing memories, and having fun! When it comes to our design team, we feel that our members should do just that. "Be Creative, capture memories, and HAVE FUN"!

Spots to fill:

Altered Item Gals
Card Gals

Each month the GCD Gals will be asked to create 3 items from our 10 new collections (one of the projects will need to be a written tutorial).

Please keep in mind that we are reserving 2 spots for "new up & coming crafters". This means that these spots will be "reserved" for unpublished gals (which I will teach them the ropes of the publishing world). We find great joy in new talent! So, even if you feel that you're not ready to submit to a design team calls, here is your chance! We want to see your work!

This year our team will be working side by side with many other companies and fun new partnerships. We have a lot of fun things lined up for our 2011 team.

{knee savers...

This months kit {candy shoppe} from Studio Calico is so bright and fun. I told myself no add-ons this month...Ha! That didn't work as soon as I saw what Maggie & mle did with the Lollipop add-on.
With a combination of Studio Calico, Sassafras, & Crate could you go wrong?

So, I created this little diddy while {e} was taking her morning nap.
Here's to sweet lazy days filled with creativity...
