GOOD MORNING my sweet friends & welcome to another "Designer Challenge!"

For this challenge, my sweet DT member Miss TeriBeri wanted us all to make a 
scrapbook layout in any size and format of your choice, using a variety of pockets and envelopes. 

Here is my project for you today! I had gotten this cute little smash book last year & when I was re-organizing my craft room, I found it! ;) It is a little over 5x7 size & I thought it would be cute to do my page in! I was texting w/my dt member Miss Katie & she told me she was going to start something for her son who will be attending college for the upcoming school year!
Soooo, that gave ME an idea to start one for my son! Even though he is only a freshman in highschool, his school is taking them to visit different colleges already! We are also going to visit some on our own just so he can get the feel of it & so he won't be in SHOCK when he gets there! lol…..
Earlier this month he was invited to visit Stanford University! Can I just say that he was SOOOO HAPPY & EXCITED that he was chosen to go! I guess only 90 kids were invited & he was one of them! Basically they get to visit the campus, see what they have to offer & they also let them know what is expected & how to apply!  When he came home that day, it felt like his childhood just went by SO FAST!  I just had to take a moment & reality set in that my baby is no baby anymore :(  Well…. he will ALWAYS by my Baby Aaron, but it's just so hard to believe that he is actually starting to look at colleges.  He is only a freshman, but I feel like these 4 years are going to go by so fast & I just DON'T WANT THEM TO! :'(
Sorry, I got sidetracked, so I used my "Tag pocket die" so I can put the invite he received and a picture of the bus that took them! lol….I'm not sure about all of you Mom's, but whenever my boys go on a field trip on a bus, I ALWAYS take a pic of the license plate & the bus number AND I go meet the driver! hehehe! I am usually on those trips w/them, but I have a claustrophobic problem so I usually follow it!  I always have this info JUST IN CASE I lose them while following! It's crazy….I know, but I just can't help it! ;)  I also did some journaling & put that in the pocket too!
I think this would be fun for him to go back & look at the colleges he did visit!  The HIGHLIGHT of his visit to Stanford, was NOT ONLY was it an AMAZING campus, but there was a "Starbuck's" on campus! hahahaha! YEP, he is DEFINITELY my son! ;) 
Here is a pic of the cute smash book that I did my page in! I LOVE it!  I wish I knew WHERE I got it! It was EARLY last year. 

Anyhow, here are the layouts & even smash book pages from my OH SO TALENTED design team~! Don't forget to click on each name to visit each blog & leave them some bloggy love!

Apr 16 – Whatever you want Wednesday

GOOD MORNING my creative friends & welcome to another "Whatever Wednesday!"
First up, I don't have anything for you today because I have a patient.  I'm not sure if I shared or not, but my Anthony recently got braces & he needed to have 2 of his adult teeth pulled :(
He was in a lot of pain afterwards so I was being his nurse.  It's funny how I was the one feeling faint AND nausea when he was getting those teeth pulled! lol.....  I TOTALLY felt his pain, my poor little guy.  He is doing a little better because he FINALLY had a milkshake that I made for him! ;) This is why I have nothing today, design team has some FABBY projects for you today!

Apr 10 Thrifty Thursday

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome to another THRIFTY THURSDAY!  For those of you who are visiting my blog for the first time we alternate every other Thursday & make a project using our SCRAPS or recycled items only! This is how "Thrifty Thursday" came about! 
Okay, for my card today, I made another attempt at watercoloring! Can I just say that once you start, it's a bit of an addiction? ;)  What I did differently is after I heat embossed it using the White Hero Arts , I added water to my paper w/a brush, THEN I added the color. I mixed the color "Mustard Seed" & water to color this! I am SO EXCITED about watercoloring right now! :) 

MCT products used:

Other items used:
