Deconstructed Sketch - DS8


Thanks for hopping with us last week and for all your fabulous & sweet comments!!

Jen has designed a super fun and great for any image sketch!
Don't pass this one gotta play!

I used Mo's oh so sweet image:
Helena and Henry
I took one look at this image and knew I had to have it.
It reminds me of my Hannah and Landon.
Han is the best big sister ever and Landon is the sweetest little 
brother...they love one another so much and I pray that never changes!!

You can find Helena and Henry HERE at MDP Shop!!

Deconstructed Sketch Blog Hop - DS7

It's a Deconstructed Sketch Vacation Blog Hop! Jen is on vacation this week so she thought it would be fun to mix things up a bit this week and have a blog hop. And you know what a blog hop means... that's right PRIZES!! For this blog hop there will be TWO prizes, one for one very lucky commenter and one for one very lucky randomly drawn participant in the sketch challenge.

So what do you need to do? Well, hop around to all the design team blogs and leave a comment. The list is below so you can hop in your own order. Very easy! Second, take a look at the sketch and make a project using the sketch as creative inspiration, post it online (blog or gallery) and link it back to the InLinkz on Jen's blog. Again, very easy!! On June 27th, 2011 Jen will announce the winner of the comment prize on her blog. The winner of the sketch participation prize will be announced on June 30th along with the next sketch.

So what are the prizes? Well Jen has kept that a secret so you will need to take a trip to her blog to find out what the prizes will be! But they are sure to be BIG!

On my card today I used Mo Manning's adorable and super sweet image:
I love it CG

Mo's Dream Team Hop
or scroll down 2 posts

If you have hopped here for 
Deconstructed Sketches - DS6
or scroll down 1 post

I have a surprise for you!!!
Today at By LORi Designs we have a little treat for unexpected release of 2 images.

Puddle Jumper Ella with her Doll


Puddle Jumper Davey and his Lizard

Now, I know these are aren't brand new PJ images.
But they are back here at home at BLD and you might not have noticed but I tweaked a few things that sort of bugged me...can you guess what is a bit different?

It's very subtle but I fixed theirs noses, their smiles and Ella's hair (it always bothered me that her hair didn't really lay right off her shoulder...YAY it's fixed)

Hop HERE for a little challenge and a chance to win Ella or Davey!! 

I really hope you all play along!!

Hello Everyone!!

This is a fun day...I have 3 posts going up today!!
It's been awhile since that has happened!
So be sure to scroll until you find what you came to see!!

This post is all about 
Deconstructed Sketches
Jen has done it again...designed a fabulous sketch!!
It was challenging for me at first, since I am a plain jane, clean and simple, no frills...possibly boring card maker!!  9 times out of 10 you will probably find a simple rectangle or square with a colored image adhered to a simple card shaped piece of card stock with maybe a dab of 
patterned paper here or there from me, but not today!!  
Jen's wonderful sketch took me out of my comfort zone and made me think a little!!

Thanks Jen for helping me to live on the wild side...LOL!!

Ok, enough babble...

Here is my card:

I used my Puddle Jumper Baby ClairaBeth Image from the

Hi Everyone!!
Welcome to our final day of the Teacher Thank You Blog Hop!!

If you have arrived here from Nancy then you are on the right track. If you just happened to stop by my blog for a visit and want to hop along with us, start from the beginning with Jen R's Blog . This is a week long hop and we will be posting on 3 separate days. (June 5th, 8th and 11th) Please make sure you hop on those days or throughout the week to see all the wonderful inspiration on what to make our teachers for thank you gifts.

Well, as some of you may know, we home school, so making a Teacher Gift (unless it was for
was not on my to do list. However, when my good friend, Kimmarie asked me to join
her Teacher Blog Hop, I couldn't resist hopping along!!!

Thanks for asking me to join you girls Kimmarie!!
Here is my project:
I am sharing a teacher plate I painted.
It was an order from a customer who was giving it to her daughter's teacher on the last day of school last week!

She sent me the name of the school, the teacher, her assistant and the names of all the kids in the class, along with everyone's hairstyle!!
I painted and personalized the plate creating a Teacher Gift!!
These are very popular this time of year!!

Thanks for hopping with us!!!


Here are a few teacher/school projects I have done before.

I used 2 of my Puddle Jumpers for this little binder.
some YUMMY October Afternoon paper
I used PJ School Time Lucy again for the project below:

Hannah designed this sweet lil' notepad and pencil holder for me and used 
PJ School Time Lucy for the image!!!

Here is a card with Lollipop School Girl Lacie!!
