SSI: All About Kids

Today's theme at Stylin' Stampin' Inkspiration is All About Kids.  I love seeing everyone's take on this theme, using Stampin' Up products.  There is so many different ways you can go with this.  Me, I thought of all my kids' friends having birthdays this month (5 in total!).  A couple are little ballerinas, like my daughter, so when I saw the Sweet Stuff Stamp Set, I knew it would be perfect for those little girls.

The All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack, Basic Hodgepodge Clips, and 2013-2015 In Color Sequin Assortment added some fun accents to the little dancing girl.

Next up are the boys.  Stay tuned.  I'll post them here when I'm done.

PGCB: Red White & Blue Challenge


I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.  Ours has been busy since the kids got out of school, which is great, but it also means less time for crafting.  :-(  I was able to sneak away a little bit to create a page for The Paper Girls' Red, White & Blue challenge, using the Pansy 1 sketch from Scrapbook Steals and the wonderful Brenda Smith.

I took the red-white-blue color scheme pretty literally with my page, using only red, white and blue paper & glitter on my layout.  I love the patriotic feel of the page, and as much as glitter can be the bane of my existence, I love the extra sparkle it added to the page.

I promise, you will see me around more this summer.  Mama needs this sanity to keep her going.  ;-)
