Digital Project Life-Week 17

Here's my offering for Week 17 in my Digital Project Life journey. The girls have been pretty helpful with feedback on what they think looks good and we all are happy with the final result of this week's effort. *Ü*

I have no idea how the gals of Bella Gypsy come up with so many amazing kits week after week, but they sure do. I picked the Hello Summer bundle that is being offered this week at Scrap Orchard because the colors are bright for summer, but also unique as well. Fun to work with for sure.

A New Crocheted Friend-Danni Rae

I'm so happy to share that I just finished crocheting a cute doll. Happy because my elbow didn't hurt at all while I was crocheting or even after I'd quit for the day. Yay! I'm hoping my patience paid off and that I can continue to crochet without discomfort.

This is Danni Rae:
 She can walk around in her flip flops or...
 Put on her tube and flippers.
 Sweet face, don't you think?
Many thanks to my assistant who loves having Danni wear the tube and flippers and making her "swim." She figured out the easiest and quickest way to get that tube on. Thanks, Jessica!

Danni is one of 4 dolls in the pattern booklet called Crochet Your Own Dolls and Accessories. I picked it up at Joann's earlier this year.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hope your weekend has started off swimmingly.

Summer Fun Digital Layout

While today it is only in the 50s and overcast, on Monday we hit a near record high in the 90s. The girls cooled off in fine fashion and I remembered to snap pictures. Had some time this afternoon to create a non Project Life layout. 
I like the happy colors.
I believe you can click to enlarge the image.

On the Sunny Side Cards

On Friday we got together with our friends for our first summer playdate. While the kids played together, Becky and I had our own crafty playdate. I was able to create three cards, all using My Mind's Eye paper from the On the Sunny Side collection. I found it at Archiver's. The colors make me smile. I also used the April and May Stamps of the Month from Close To My Heart.
This card uses the April Stamp of the month and the Hello stamp from Hello Blooms. Holiday Red and Sunflower worked well with the collection. 

The stars are from the May Stamp of the Month and have been inked in Holiday Red, Sunflower and Twilight. The red paper is American Crafts brand. The blue is Twilight cardstock with the stars stamped in Twilight as well. On the white circle, I inked the stamp in Sunflower, stamped off on a scrap paper then stamped on the white cardstock. I like that it breaks up the starkness of the white a little.

I used my corner rounder again on 1 1/2 inch squares of paper. The butterflies are from Michaels.

The cards were inspired by cards found on Pinterest. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!


Digital Project Life-Week 16

Yay! Week 16 started and finished today. *Ü* Feels a little like I might be getting into a bit of a groove. Just as an FYI, the template I used is designed to showcase photos taken over the course of one day and it has spots for typing the different times of the day to go along with the photos. I chose to hide those parts of template. The beauty of templates in action.
