The rest of my 'ketchup'

Okay, this past week was the April Crop at THE NOOK and I actually SCRAPPED...and not JUST with DT kit's either!! 
I have found that I can't leave a kit until I feel like I've used every last scrap and this past weekend I forced myself to play with stuff OTHER than kit stuff!! :0)
It felt good to scrap with stash, and some new stuff from SCRAPFEST, which was even better AGAIN this year than it has been in the that can even be, I'm not really sure, but it was!

Okay, so from the Nook Crop challenges, my stash, and ScrapFest purchases, results the following!
From Jenn's splatter challenge...LOVE paint splatter, her tutorial rocks.
And I'm now addicted.

Gary's 8th birthday party...I'm so behind. 
He turned 9 last month.

Loved Charlie's layout so much, I had to do one for Gary. 
I blame Jennifer 100% for my new splatter addiction.

Not feeling this one, but I wanted these pics in Sarah's album, and the papers seemed to work so well with her sweater.  Oh well.  You can't love them all, right? lol

I was in love with this one in my head...but then it didn't translate to paper quite like I'd hoped.
Again, at least it's done. 

Super simple, it's quite a lovely yellow irl, but the weather hasn't been good for photographing.

Another really simple one.
More paint splatter.  All Jenn's fault.
I wanted to journal on the bare space in the photo.
Not too sure yet how much I like this one...

Okay, so that's it for now.  My goal to blog once weekly...
Wish me luck with that. lol

Dutch Mustard Soup mmmm....

My regular DT kit in April was Jilly Bean Soup Dutch Mustard Soup.  Mmmm....Love the earthy colours in this line!

I'm going to knock out some cards with this yet too...I picked up some WICKED dies at Scrapfest that are totally new to me....and guess who's bringing them in???
You will soon be able to find Nellie Snellen dies at THE NOOK!  WOO HOO...Seriously, you're going to love these puppies...I hope to get a few cards done this week with them, and my scraps from the soup!  I can't wait to share. :)

April 2011 Nook kit!

Definately worth the $30, run to the Nook now to see if they have any left...I think there were 4 last time I looked. I've done all of this and still have tons left to work with, and intend to make a bunch of cards. :0)
While you're there make sure to add the 12" sheet of chipboard, I did, and I don't regret it!
click here to see the kit!

March DT Stuff!

Wow, am I a BAD blogger or what??  Trying to catch up here after apparently too much slacking. lol
In March I was sent the 3Bugs in a Rug Dawson goodness to play with!  It was nice to shake it up a bit!
I had so much fun cutting into these papers, and they make short work of some super fast and simple kids cards!

Plain and simple, love these pics of my little man with the deer.  He's right at home anywhere with animals...a chip off the old momma block. lol

You can see here, it's not all Dino's and kids can really use this line so many ways.   And I'm still in love with my Irock! :0)  I centred these punched flowers with Irock gems.  So easy peasy, and a big impact!

These tickets were perfect for these pics!

I just so happened to have the most perfect photo for the dinosaur paper too!  LOVE it when it all comes together like that!

Some more Quick and easy cards!
