I have always enjoyed being crafty. I remember getting really excited about stickers and fun stationary when I was little. Well its good to know that some things in life never change!

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been hooked ever since. My love of crafting has branched out to include DIY, projects, gardening, baking, and canning. I hope to share my projects here.

Playground title page

Hiya! I hope everyone is having a good week. I have been busy trying to get all my projects for my monthly cartridge challenge done before the month ends. Tossing in a few Easter projects into the mix this month has put me a tad behind schedule.

So a little background info on this project: I live in Tinley Park, IL. One of its two claims to fame is that we have been awarded the title: "The Best Place in America to Raise a Family." (Big whoop! LOL) Anyway, with that being said, we have A LOT of parks in town. The powers that be gotta keep improving the town so we can maintain our title. XD

My Family has a goal to play in every playground in Tinley Park. (We estimate there to be at least 50!) We have already played at quite a few. I have taken pictures at each one so far, so we can make a scrapbook about our quest. This is the title page for that book.

This project also uses TWO carts from my Monthly challenge: My Community and Cupcake-Lite. WooHoo! I love two for one projects!

Here is a close up of the trees. I cut the base layer twice and then hand cut the tree tops out and embossed them using Swiss Dots, and Vintage Wallpaper Folders

Recipe for layout:

My Community Cartridge: Playground cut at 7.75"
Cupcake - Lite: Font and Shadow layer, cut at sizes ranging from .88" - 1.59"
Patterned papers/small punchouts: Over the Rainbow by We R Memory Keepers
Solid Cardstock: Bazzil smooth and The Paper Company smooth.
All Inking was done using Tim Holtz Distress Inks in various colors (my new obsession)
Divine Twine
Cuttle Bug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
Vintage Wallpaper Sizzix Stampin'Up Embossing Folder

Have a Great and Crafty Day!
