Blog Hop September 1st-7th

Hello everyone! If you stumbled on to the hop here, then please go to Creative Embellishments blog for the hop details and begin the hop on Nicolle's blog here... >>
 I am happy you are here with us today to celebrate our 1st Anniversary. We are celebrating with a hop and giving away (4) $25.00 gift vouchers to the store. All you will need to do to be entered to win one of the voucher’s is to leave some love on each of our design team’s blog’s and follow their blogs. Each member of the DT is sharing a project with their favorite CE product on it. The winner of the hop will be randomly picked and announced announced on Monday September 8th. For extra chances to win please make sure to stop by the Creative Embellishments blog at the end and let us know what your favorite Creative Embellishments product is. 

I created a layout for the blog hop. Being a bit biased I am typically pretty happy with the products we design. Right now my favorite is the stars in my universe frame. I also used a bunch of our other products ..rubber stamps, wood veneers and flair.

As many of you may already know my daughter Kayla graduated high school in June. I didn't have a chance to scrap as much as I would've liked to in the summer so I thought this would be sort of fitting since school is starting. We have a wide variety of school related items. 
I love this pictures of Kayla what a truly happy young lady and this momma is soo proud of her.

I simply altered the stars in my universe frame using Lindy's stamp gang embossing powders in Midnight Pewter and Cleopatra's Copper colors. I altered out great job title and wood veneer stars the same.

A close up of a few of the other products I used on this product. Binary stamp, grunge stars stamp, pieces from our school wood veneer set, graduation wood veneer set, a button from our graduation 2014 set.

I hope you liked my project. Thanks again for joining in our blog hop.

 Don't forget to stop at the Creative Embellishments blog for extra chances to win and leave us a comment letting us know what your favorite CE product is. We would also love for you to play along with our September challenge as well. More details on the CE blog..:)

Just Peachy Layout - Special Deputy CSI Color Stories Inspiration

Happy Friday Friends! Today I am sharing a layout I created for CSI (colorstoriesinspiration) case file 127 as a Special Deputy! 
My son Bret passed his road test and got his license on April 11th. I am both proud of him and well always a sort of worry wart, a nervous momma.

Evidence: Camera, wood and transportation pic.

 Hidden Journaling: Peachy - I have mixed feelings about Bret passing his road test. Don't get me wrong. I am happy but also worried. I felt the same about Ryan and Kayla. I am confident Bret will be careful. I am proud of him. 
Thanks for stopping by the blog.

A Fun Day Layout - CSI Special Deputy

Today I am sharing a layout I created for Creative Embellishments inspired by Casefile #126 at CSI colorstoriesinspiration challenge site.
My Aunt took Jolie to Darien Lake on Saturday and Sunday . This girl has been asking us for years to go. We have either been to busy or didn’t have enough cashola to go. Sometimes it stinks being the youngest of 4 children. I am hoping she doesn’t feel resentment when she gets older. The cool thing is that my aunt bought her a season pass which includes free parking. She can go to the park everyday this summer if she wanted and of course with proper supervision. My daughter Kayla and son Bret both got seasons passes as well so I know they won’t mind taking her and it tickles me to see them spend time together. Jolie is 6 years younger then Kay and 8 years younger then Bret.

EVIDENCE:  Chevrons, polka dots, flowers, leaves, hearts, transparent item (over photo), flourish, scalloped border.

Testimony: Invite prompt... Journaling says.. 
Jolie was so excited to be invited to Darien Lake. It's her first time going to the amusement park. She had an amazing time.

Thanks for stopping by the blog. Have a creative weekend.

Happy Days Layout - June Special Deputy at CSI Color Stories Inspiration

Happy Sunday and June 1st!! I am back again today sharing a layout as a Special Deputy at CSI (colorstoriesinpiration) ning scrappy challenge site.  I created this layout for Case File no. S365-6. 

My goofy daughter Kayla is at one of the tours on a submarine at the Erie Basin Marina. She also visited the 2 war ships they have at the harbor. One is supposedly haunted? She was with her boyfriend their last year and he took the silly pic.

 How I solved the case.

Evidence; Lace, Hemp twine, jewels, flowers, ombre (stamped image),striped, frames, labels, gold (on compass),stamped (grid)and texture paste.

Journal ...I used the initials of Kayla Kramer to describe her on the labels to the right of the photo..Kind, Kooky, kinetic, kissable, kindred. 

I also journaled on a tag behind the photo. Inspired by the word fresh...Kayla and her boyfriend Mike spent the day at the Erie Basin Marina. It's a nice place to go on a hot day to enjoy the fresh air. It's often cooler by the lake. They also enjoyed the sights, food and chillaxin.
