Hey friends! Been a few. Schools out, my daughter MaryAnn graduated, and now I have the summer to chill before it all starts again.

I have a layout for you that I'll be entering in a couple of challenges. The staple is the song challenge over on I love it we have a great time with it. The other two is More Than Words and Lindy's Stamp Gang color challenge. Click on their names to find out more.

Here is the inspo for More Than Words

We had to do some mixed media which I often do on my pages. The word is Imagine. When you see my layout, you'll find it hard to imagine that they aren't who they seem to be ;)

These are the colors for Lindy's. Such a beautiful summer pallet. I'll link the colors to their site at the end.

My song for the challenge was Lady by Kenny Rogers. In honor of Father's Day we chose songs by men. I didn't really like my song so my hubby gave me a great idea for the layout!

Let's check it out -

Yup folks, these are men. Can you IMAGINE that!!! They're from my four daughter's most fave show RuPaul's Drag Race. That's Violet, Pearl and Miss Fame. My daughters were quick to inform me that the pic of Pearl in the middle is an old one and she has gotten more glamorous.

I clear gesso'd my paper, don't ask me the line, it's a company that I don't think even exists anymore. I then misted and splatted combined with stamping for the background. My hexagon frame was cut with my Cricut and the Accent Essential cart, I welded the shapes together. My title was the Ashlyn cart. Some flowers from Petaloo, Zva and I Am Roses and there you go!

Here are the Lindy colors used -

Yellow Rose Of Texas
Raspberry Lemonade
Fuzzy Navel Peach
Tiffanylou Blue
Shabby Turbine Teal

Thanks for looking! Stop by these challenges to join the fun :)

Pocket Letters

Hey there folks! Tonight I'm going to share a fun new project I've fallen in love with. Pocketletters. What's that you ask? They're little ATC's that you put in trading card sleeves and swap snailmail style all over the world! Check out all about them here at Pocketletter Pals. Janette Lane is the inventor of them and I adore these little pockets of fun.

I've been in a few swaps now and here's some pics of the one's I've done -

Each pocket has a theme, basically penpals on steroids. I had a blast making each one of these and it's an awesome way to use scraps!

Thanks for stopping by!

Hello Friends! Here on this Monday to share a layout I did for More Than Words and the music challenge on If you're not familiar with More Than Words click to go to their site either here or from my sidebar. Two challenges a month, the main and a mini, and really awesome prizes!

This months challenge is a nice one -

I love clocks! And I love them on layouts :) It's a great way to show the marking or passing of time.  Let me just give a small back story to the pics of Santino who was a wee babe here. He's crying because his siblings had put a big piece of tape over his mouth! Poor kid, they did that sort of stuff to him all the time and when they saw this layout they all started laughing and saying "that's when we taped his mouth closed!" What a lovely bunch ;)

Here are some pics -

Another nice stash raid here. Pretty Prima Epiphany collection, Prima flowers, some micro beads, stampwork and misting and some clocks. I love Lindy's mists, their colors are so gorgeous and look great on the pages.

My song for the challenge was True Colors by Cindy Lauper and I printed the first lines onto the pic.

Thanks for looking!
