Lots O' Scrappy Goodness

Happy (hot) weekend!
We're having a little Spring Fever at The Nook this weekend.
Some fun challenges and prizes.....low  key, nothing stressful....Just FUN!

Hop on over here and check out all the little challenges and maybe you'll win a fun little RAK from one of the designers.

This is my challenge.....create a layout using a SUN ;)

The papers are Crate Neighborhood that we had as an add on option last month at the Nook.
To make the sun I just free hand cut some long triangles, some  big some little and then layered them around to make my sun. One of the papers has these little hexagons, so I just cut out a yellow one and layered it with a button for my center.

As for the April kit here are a few more layouts.....

Sometimes I get ideas that I want to do....like with this one. I wanted to circles. I don't do a lot of circles, so I wanted  to try it.  I ended up having a lot of fun with the mix of colors that I could incorporate because  of all my little circles.  AND this is the first time I've ever scrapped studio pictures ;)  Samantha at 1.
For this layout I knew I wanted to keep it simple and clean. But I wanted a sun to go with my sunny pictures. A paper sun like my other layout was too bold. So machine stitch I did and I loved how subtle it turned out.
I also made a sketch to go with it for the sketch challenge over at the Nook.

Thanks for looking at all my junk!
My keyboard is starting to stick and my spacer  is sticking half the time.....typing is turning into a mess!

Today we bought Jack a bike!
He's so excited,  though the one we picked didn't have training wheels, so he'll be learning how to ride it quickly I hope!
Hopefully I'll get some pictures of him soon to share.
I'm finding that I don't pick up my camera near as much these days.
The big kids don't want it in their faces and most of the time Jack is sitting in the middle of a HUGE disaster called toys and playing in his orange shirt and other shade of orange shorts.
That's how he rolls man.

Happy Saturday!!!!
