Are these monkey's not just perfect for peeking out though a circle?
This is what the card looks like open. You can see those things are on the inside!
So now I have to pass it on.. And I will... I just need to make a list from the 100s of ladies that inspire me..... But first I have to cook dinner, bath the little ladies, do homework, read bedtime storeis, etc, etc, etc....
Be back later to post today's card!

Anyway, here is my attempt at her sketch:
My mom gave me this really cool roll of sheet metal that she found somewhere in the depths of her art room. She claims you can get it at the craft stores as well. So, I have been embossing it with the Big Shot (like here) as well as punching it. Its fun to play with! This card also features one of Stampin' Ups new colors called Early Espresso. It is part of the new Color Renovation (available in July.)

So, that was my theme when I made this card for the Inkspiration Color Challenge.
I love all of these colors! I drew inspiration from another card in the current issue of Scrapbooks, Etc. It's a good one this month!

This week's challenge at Paper Pal Arts is KISS (Keep It Simple Sweetie!) Yea right! My middle name is complicated! LOL! This stinking card took me forever! I think trying to keep it simple is harder than making it not simple! LOL!
Anyhow, I came up with something simple by my deffinition! I saw a bandaid similar to this in the current issue of Scrapbook's etc. and I knew I had to make one! So cute, isn't it?
I used lots of Stampin' Dimensionals to add dimension to my little bandaids!

I changed the clors slightly becaus of supplies, but its still basically the same thing. I liked this combo alot. Feels kind of Fallish to me.
And, I have to take a minute to honor my oldest daughter Ellie. She had several pieces in her school's art show this week, but this was my favorite. She was very proud of her self portrait as am I. Doesn't it look just like her??? Maybe she will follow in her Jamma's footsteps some day and be a professional artist!

I chose some new paper I got at the LSS. Can't remember who its by... But, it was bright and cheery and exactly what I needed for my daughter's Kinder Graduation pictures!
I also included a few swap items that I received from my scrappy friends at ASP. The paperclip and title were both swap items!

I chose Dusty Durango and Basic Grey to showcase this awesome Motorcycle stamp. It will be out soon in the Stampin' Up Summer Mini Catalog. I don't have a bike rider in my family, but I still love this stamp!
I aslo wanted to show another layout we will make at my National Scrapbook Month Crop!
