This week's challenge over at The Shoe is to use the following Copic colors on your LO. Now, you don't have to actually use Copic's, we just thought that there are a lot of Copic users out there and what better way to get them inspired too!

The colors this week are: Ocean Green, Nile Green and Nile Blue. I hope you enjoy my take on these beautiful colors!

These are pictures from last summer (09) on our vacation to San Diego.

Supplies used:

Fashionista Friday Diecut Challenge

This week's challenge over at The Shoe is to use Diecuts....simple, right? You would think so, but I'm not a big user of Diecuts, I pretty much do simple pages; some fancier than others too...LOL!

These are pictures of my 2 daughters and their 2 friends when we went camping for the first time in our new trailer. We were down at Lake Gaston, NC and it was a bit chilly (way back in April). Of course, the girls see the camera and start acting all crazy and these are the pics I got!

All these pieces (except the white CS) are from Storytellers Club, March 2009 kit. They are laser diecuts and come on 3 different sheets so you have plenty to choose from, so I decided to use 2 borders, one of which says "It's a ZOO in here", that I found absolutely perfect for these pics.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have found some inspiration to use animal pattern paper in a different way, just like me!

Page Maps Sketch & Prize

So yesterday I was blog hopping and decided to go to Page Maps to see what was going on over there, not just their blog but to see any new sketches that they may have had. I stumbled upon the sketch challenge for this week (deadline August 15th) and decided I would give it a try. I'm not much for entering challenges, but Holy Moly, did you see the prize they are giving away?? If not, see below and CLICK HERE to go directly to Page Maps blog.

Here is my take on the sketch. I used a 5 x 7 pic of my daughters and nephew on the Riptide ride at Knotts Berry Farm in Buena Park, CA from last year. I've been wanting to scrap it for a long time, just didn't know what to do until I saw this sketch!! I just LOVE that the picture is of them upside down on the ride!!

Here is a list of products I used:

CS: DCWV & Bazzill; PP: Echo Park; Prima packaging; Stickers: Echo Park and Thickers; Tag: Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz; Journaling tag: Joanns; Punch: Fiskers; Ribbon: Unknown.
Thanks for stopping by and Good Luck everyone who enters!
