Hello Friend

A little while back I was soooo lucky to win a stamp from Your Next Stamp. Thanks YNS!!
I hadn't had a chance to ink it up but then I saw their Summer challenge and knew I just had to break it open.

The stamp is called Summer Fun Fhiona. Isn't she adorable? I coloured her in using my Copics and chose some papers from Echo Park's Sweet day collection that I got from Cord Scrapbook Studio to make my card.

Cardstock: Prism
Ink: Versafine
Misc: Copics, Stickles

All Play at MSB

Today at myStampBOX it's an "All Play" day for the design team. The theme this month was to use Grey and/or Kraft.
I chose Grey.

For the sentiment I used the Mention It collection and with the teeny flowers in the Funky Flowers set I stamped some flowers with pink ink onto the card base and also fussy cut some out after stamping on white cardstock and added them to the cake.

One of the latest collections that I received from Cord Scrapbook Studio was the Bella Blvd Baby Boy collection.

I have lots of photos of my sons when they were babies that haven't been scrapped since I wasn't scrapbooking way back then so this collection was perfect for me.

This layout is about my Mom meeting my oldest son Jonathan for the first time. I ended up having a C-section before my due date and my parents weren't able to drive back from Florida in time for the birth so I was home when they got to meet. The consolation to all this was that my Mom and Jonathan get to share the same birth date..... Sept. 17th!

Bella Blvd products: patterned paper, miniature stickers, alpha stickers, crocheted daisies, decorative tape
Mist: Mr. Huey
Punch: SU
Cardstock: The Paper Co.
Misc: Doily

It was fun using the little word stickers to help write my journaling.

The crocheted daisies are adorable!

I loved all the different patterned papers that I used to make my little pennants and the decorative tape...Hello....I bordered my whole layout with it! LOL!!

I'll be sharing some more projects using this collection this week.
