A Scrappy Page and cards

Good Evening Everyone!
Wow....this day has flown by! It's nearly time to start dinner but I wanted to get my post up first. I'll be quick ;)
Most of you know that I am NOT a scrapbooker. I love to try but it's just not my thing. Last week I had visited Renée's blog and I knew I wanted to do something similar with these big clothespins I had on my shelf. So I pulled out the Summer Picnic DP and some Sale A Bration rub ons and got to work. This is a picture of Chloe from last summer but other than getting a wee bit taller I think she looks the same.
My neighbour came by today to work on some school volunteer stuff but we got it done lickety split! YAH! That meant we had plenty of time to play with some stamps.
A couple of weeks ago I picked up a different line of American Crafts DP with these colours. One of them is this butterfly paper. It's so bright and cheery too! I knew what stamp I wanted to use with it....Bold Butterfly! It's a retired SU! set from a couple of years ago but it's one I just can't part with.

Lastly we decided to make a CC Designs card with a stamp I hadn't used yet. He is so dog gone cute isn't he?! More American Crafts DP. I'm think I should buy stock in that company. The paper they have come out with lately is FABULOUS! This is a sketch from Julee's MOJO31.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Now I really need to start dinner...if you have any questions please just ask ;)
