Long Jumper

Sydnee placed first in her third grade class' Long Jump event at Track & Field Day 2011.  I put the camera on ACTION mode and went to town snapping fun shots of her racing and jumping;  she was truly in her element!  When I came across Elle's Studio Sketch Thursday, I went into ACTION myself.  

Sketch Thursday 6/2/11: Little Long Jumper
I turned the sketch vertically to fit my photos.  Product used: Bazzill Smoothies cardstock• Lime Twist patterned paper by My Mind's Eye• punch-out embellishments and yellow patterned paper by October Afternoon• glittered Thickers by American Crafts• ribbon by May Arts• sticker letters by Cosmo Cricket• button by Jenni Bowlin• other: vintage crochet thread and brads. 

I'm falling in love with sketches again and it's such a good thing!  There are tons of wonderful sketch sites and I'm sure that there are many more that I haven't stumbled upon...yet :)

Sydnee ended up with a 1st place ribbon in: Girl's Long Jump and 100 Meter Dash; 2nd place in 100 Meter Boy/Girl Relay and 6th place in the Three-Legged Race...she was ecstatic!  She's such a J-O-Y ♥

Okay, I'm outta here...Housewives is on!

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
