Black and White Cookie

I don't know if any of you were fans of the Seinfeld show but my sons know every episode off  by heart I think!

When my son Cameron came to visit us in Florida this March and we were out doing some grocery shopping in the bakery he saw the "black and white cookie" that was the theme of one of the episodes and just had to have one. This of course was a photo opportunity that I couldn't pass up...hee hee!!

Here is a little clip of that Seinfeld episode.

The sketch I used to make my layout is from Purple Pumpkin's April sketch challenge.

My 2 Sons

Last weekend I was at my home away from home, Memories Manor, for a scrap retreat where I made this layout.
In making it I have discovered 3 new loves...yes 3!

The first is The Paper Bakery where I found the sketch. They are having a sketch challenge if you wish to check it out. The owner, Sarah, is the sweetest thing ever and I have purchased some flair badges from her recently....with a free shipping special no less!!! You will be seeing them in my future projects for sure!!

The second is the Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist. Love how fast it dries and the glitter it has and how I can get nice big drops on my page.

The third is the Maggie Holmes collection from Crate Paper. This is a must have and you will definitely be seeing more of this on my blog. You can find this collection at Scrapbook Memories and More. That's where I got it.

Seize the Birthday #12

I got another birthday card done this weekend and all because I played along with Seize the Birthday. This was perfect because we had to make a feminine card with the sketch and I have an aunt with a birthday this week.

Love this challenge site because as you know we always need birthday cards!

Here is my take on the sketch.

Stamp: SU
PP: Echo Park
Ribbon: Colorbok
Brad: MME
Stickles, emb. powder, twine,Versamark, Nestabilities
See the pretty butterfly? I used a free download from the lovely Lisa Gregory who is the guest designer over at Scraps of Elegance this month. I just printed it off, cut it out and then added some Stickles and some twine and...voila! Thanks Lisa!
