June 12 of 12

I had an awful realization on a Sunday a couple weeks ago mid morning--I forgot to start my 12 0f 12 photos. So I grabbed the camera and Maggie reminded me that it was Sunday, June 13th! I completely missed the 12th! So, I took it all in stride and did my 12 photos on the 13th! I used a new kit "The Guy Kit" that I got from contains a lot of Father's Day elements and since June celebrates dads, I thought the paper was appropriate. I also used a new template this month. I got it from Urban Mom Scraps.

Tropic Punch

I enjoyed creating this LO based on sketch from PageMaps. I have also been using a stack called Tahiti Beach from DCWV for many of the Hawaii LO's and Life is a Beach Cricut Cart.

Escape and Surf's Up

Found some time to today to scrap! The end of school is always such a hectic time of year and now it is vacation time! I was able to get these LO's done today. Progress through our Hawaii photos and reliving the trip!

Wax Museum

I did this LO of Maggie's Wax Museum pose based on a sketch posted at Sketches! {by tamara}. The Wax Museum was so much fun to view. All the kids in Maggie's class did an amazing job staying still for 20 minutes!

Thank Ewe

The kids needed to give some cards to a few teachers to thank them for putting up with them this year. So this is what I came up with last night. Used a cuttlebug folder, Create a Critter for the Ewe and my new My Pink Stamper Punny-Licious stamps that I ordered from Crafts To Favor (they were fast and have Facebook specials). Just need to run out and get a couple of Starbucks cards for 2 of them and throw a MK gift together for the other and I'm done with teacher gifts!

Happy Retirement

The music teacher at our school is retiring. She has been teaching for 38 years. My kids have learned a lot from her. I am also giving her a pair of hand knit socks so she will always remember our family whenever she wears the socks! We will miss her.

World's Greatest Father

I made this card to give to my dad for Father's Day. I used my new Holiday Cakes cart and Sports Mania for the cuts. Bet dad will like it!

Just 4 You

This card is for DD's birthday. I used my new Create A Critter cart for the front art work. Hope she likes it!

Love, Love, Love

Persnickety Prints has a free digi kit by Deena Rutter and has a layout contest. I really like Deena's designs and this kit is no exception. Sketchy Thursdays posted a great sketch this week that I thought would work great with the papers in the kit. I wanted to use the Love, Love, Love word art and I found a photo of Maggie and Muffin from last year that I thought fit the sentiment.

Father's Day

I made this picture frame for the kids to give to their dad for Father's Day. I scraplifted the idea from the Scrapguy (he has awesome projects and ideas). He did a guest post for Everyday Cricut a few weeks ago, using Holiday Cakes for the cuts. I had just gotten the cart, mainly for Father's Day projects, so his project was a perfect scraplift opp for me! Thanks, Bryan!

For the card, I decided to use the leftover cuts from the license plate and paper from the frame background. No sense letting good pieces go to waste...

There were too many letters for the front of the card, so I finished off the inside.
Now, I need to make a card for my dad and I have Father's Day wrapped up (ahead of time for a change).

Our Hawaiian adventure had to come to an end. Darn. But, we can start dreaming of our next adventure!
The idea for this LO came from this week's challenge on Sketches! {by tamara}'s blog.

Buried Treasure?

I love a challenge. Sketches! {by tamara} had a journaling challenge this week to write your journaling around your layout. I think that challenge worked out just fine with this layout....
