The Scrapoholic's Monday MTC Challenge

This weeks files from Jill were a real treat to work with.   I love all things patriotic so I had a hard time choosing but in the end I picked the Made in USA tag because I have some adorable pictures of my niece in her 4th of July best that I need to scrap so here is my page.

The background page is hand stitched using embroidery floss.  The ribbon on the photo mats is a Big Lots find and I am not sure where I got the patterned paper. 

I would love it if you left a comment and remember visit Jill's blog to see what the other design team members came up with.  Have a wonderful and safe Memorial Day!  :D

Vacation Day Blog Hop

Welcome to The Vacation Day Blog Hop!  I am so glad you are here.  You should have come from Jenny's blog but if you just happened by please start at the beginning of the hop with Nancy.

Nancy has asked us all to share what we love most about vacations.  I think the best part of vacationing is leaving your everyday life behind for awhile.  I love the time away from home, stress, work and schooling.  I also enjoy being somewhere new and exciting. 

I love this project.  I had soo much fun creating it.  The frame was a plain black and white that didn't really match my house so I decided to alter it.  The pictures are from our 2006 North Carolina vacation.  It was the most awesome vacation ever and I would love to back. 

 The frame measures 8 1/2 x 40 inches.  I distressed the background and liberally applied Glimmer Mist.  The lettering was all done in MTC.   I bought the leaves 5 years ago and never found a use for them until this project.   Funny thing is I bought them online from a lady in NC.  Kinda ironic....

Here are some close ups.

If you are not a follower of mine I would love it if you would consider following and please leave a comment.  I know Nancy has a give away going but you have to comment on each blog along the hop to be eligible.  You are now heading to the last stop on the hop Betty's blog.  Thanks for hopping along and I hope you enjoyed yourself!  :D

Here is the full line up just in case you get lost.  Have a great time!

The Scrapoholic's Monday MTC Challenge

I feel bad for posting this soo late but it has been one of those days....  I worked on the wrong file and then tried to change files and that didn't work out well at all....  I think this card could be really cute but my glue pen is out and I am babysitting so I can't go pick up another one.  So, with that said please excuse my crooked letter and make sure you check out The Scrapoholic's page and the other design teams members inspiration.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

The Scrapoholic's Monday MTC DT challenge

I have to say I love, love, love this week's MTC design's from Jill.  It was super hard to pick which flower to use and I know I will eventually be using all of them but for this project I thought this flower was just perfect. 

This picture is a favorite of mine.  I love my smiley, sweet little guy! 

For the layout I used:

random bright cardstock scraps
MTC for the lettering
Jill's MTC flowers1 file
Skittles for flower centers
Cat's Eye chalks
liquid adhesive

It is a pretty simple LO but I really love it and I hope you enjoy it.   Make sure you check out Jill's blog and see what the other designer's came up with and join in on the challenge!  I would love to hear what you think of this LO.  :D

Lordy, Lordy Blog Hop Day 7

I am soo sorry I am behind... the internet has not been kind to me the last few days.  I think I am going to have to make some sort of deal with it where it works well during blog hops and the hours I am awake.  It can be as stinky as it likes while I am sleeping... : P

So without making you wait any longer Here is the file for day 7 and a screen shot of it.  I ran out of time to put the LO together but I can't wait to do it and once it is finished I will share. 
With any luck the internet gods will smile on me and I will have more up in a couple of hours.  See you then and don't forget to check out all the other blogs and leave some love.
