Todays lo is for the Lasting Memories challenge and the the challenge this week is floral. I had taken some pictures of the pretty Iris last week that I thought I would use but then realized I hadn't printed them out yet. So I had to come up with something last night. I finally put this together. It's not that exciting but I love the tree I made and the pictures of the Dogwood tree are really pretty. I love this little tree and is so pretty in the spring when it flowers. I have pictures of the tree during all the seasons and hope to put together a lo or two with all the different seasons.
I used my cricut and 3 different cartridges for this lo. I think that might be a record for me. The tree was cut at 5" from the Cindy Lou cart and then I embellished it with Making Memories fuzzy felt flower brads and some leftover chipboard flowers from my Peeps lo. I also used some felt BG pieces I got in my March Artful Delights kit. I cut the word Spring from the Straight from the Nest cart but I can't remember what size it is. I cut the decorative piece with the photos from Elegant Edges at fit to page and I think it said it was 11". I used Bazzill cardstock for all the cuts. Thanks for looking.

This lo is for the Lasting Memories sketch challenge this week. I used some pictures of Will from last year when he got a sock monkey for his birthday. He has always wanted one but I never could fine one for him but his Aunt Mary ordered one online for him and a tshirt from Build a Bear that says Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup Champions. He really liked it and was totally surprised. He has quite a collection already of stuffed monkeys so this was added to them. I used sock monkey paper and 3-d stickers I found at Hobby Lobby, Bazzill cardstock and two sock monkey brads I got at our LSS a few weeks ago. Thanks for looking.

I created this lo for the Lasting Memories challenge this week. The challenge was to use this photo as inspiration for your lo this week.
I love the colors in this photo and tried to use them in my lo. I used papers from Sassafrass Lass for the background paper and the rainbow border and the flower paper. I used Basic Grey papers for the green and the yellow and pink at the top for journaling. I used Jillibean cardboard letters for the title. The flowers near the photo came from my Artful Delights kit and I used the buttons from there too. I used BG chip board for the other flowers and bee and butterfly. Thanks for looking.

After I posted the photo of the Robins nest I noticed that she wasn't in it that much so I checked a couple of days later and saw that there was only one egg instead of two. I was dissapointed but figured one was better than none. Then a couple of days later I noticed she hadn't been there all day so I went and checked again and NO eggs were left. I never saw any other birds messing with the nest so I'm not sure what took them but they were gone. I did notice yesterday and today though that she is back out on the nest after not being there for a while so I wonder if she will lay more eggs. I'll keep an eye out and my fingers crossed because those babies are so cute.

I created this lo for the Lasting Memories challenge this week. The challenge is to create a lo about yourself. I thought I would do one about 40 things I love at almost 40 years old. I used Echo Park papers for the paper squares, Bazill cardstock for the background and some Michaels Recollections pieces for the butterfly and and butterfly border. The flowers are K&Co brads. Thanks for looking.
