A great mix today!

I had intentions to get so much done around the house today but it just didn't happen...LOL
My sister came by again today with her boys. They wanted one last play time with Chloe before school starts on Tuesday. Since we don't live really close we don't see one another through the school year as often as we'd like. The kids have a blast together too!
This first photo is of a 4 x 4 flipbook I made with the Bind-it-All yesterday. Lisa has a GREAT tutorial on her blog HERE. I haven't added any pictures or anything to it yet. Was thinking of taking Chloe out to snap some and dress this up as a gift for my Grandmother.
Once again I was thrilled to see Beate get her sketch challenge up on her blog this morning! I think sketch challenges are my all time favourite!!! I'm not the most creative person and sketches really help! If you want to do her challenge then click Sketch Challenge #17
I got my GinaK Make a Wish stamps I HAD to use them!

On SCS today there were actually THREE challenges for Limited Supplies LSC131. I thought about doing all three in one card but realized I'm not that crafty....haha! I only had time to do one challenge before my sister got here so I thought I'd do the easy one. Tent topper cards are fast!

Wow! You had a productive stamping day. All of your projects turned out great. I especially like the one you did for Beate's sketch. I love the way you paper pierced the holes and used the white gel pen and repeated that on the scallop circles and photo corner. Great colors too!
