Gone Crazy Scrapping

Even though it was a bit crazy around here yesterday with my hubby unloading a moving van and stacking box upon box around the house, I was able to be scrappy!!  (yeah!!)

My hubby has been commuting to work in Minnesota and had an apartment there.  Now that he is managing 14 states instead of just one, he won't be there as often and so no longer needs the apartment.  So he packed up his stuff and drove it back here.

Yesterday I scrapped 2 layouts and 2 cards and started a 3rd card!  Sometimes you are just "feeling it".  Right??

One of the layout is a DT project so you will have to wait to see it but I am going to share the other 3 with your today!!

First lets start with a card I made using Fia's sketch Challenge at Sketches4all (Get Sketchy). 
I used some awesome G45 - Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers.  I even fussy cut those butterflies out of a sheet of paper.  The sentiment is vellum that I pulled from my stash and so are those brads.  Super quick and easy.  (love those!!) ha

I'm entering it over at:

Inspired by photo #13- stripes and blue
Divas by Design - stripes and spots
Paper Play Challenges - Something Old, Something New -(old-vellum sentiments and brads, new-G45 paper)
Sparkles Forum Challenges - Things with wings (butterflies)

Next I want to share another card I made using a sketch challenge from Kathleen at Sketches4all.

I used more of that G45 paper and a stamp from Crafter's Companion.  It is a Stamp It Australia- Hummingbird Wings Stamp.  (LOVE IT!!)

I'm going to enter it:

Simon Says Stamps - Anything goes

Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Use Your Stash (bling, stickles, paper scraps)

And finally my layout....are you dying to see it?  lol  I used another sketch challenge. This time it was a sketch made by Jessica over at Sketches4all

I used some new paper from Little Yellow Bicycle - Saturdays Collection.  I've been obsessing over my Sew Ribbon punches so I decided to use it on this layout.  Those things are so cool and so easy!!  I hid a bit of journaling with a pull out tag.  I blinged the heck of those circles and I used funny photos of my dd.  She loves beef jerky and slim jims.  When her brothers and I were driving back to Nevada from Oklahoma we came across these ginormous treats and knew she would LOVE them.  So we got them and gave them to her for her birthday.  Weird...I know.  LOL  But she did love them as you can tell from the photos.

I'm going to enter this:
