Pure fun along with Creative Embellishments

Hello to all!  Today I have a layout of me & my grandsons, Brian & Talan (they call me "Gammy").  I got tickets for the live show of PAW PATROL.  We, along with their mother, took the speedline over to Philadelphia to see the show- THE SPEEDLINE WAS A SHOW IN ITSELF!  The wonderment in their eyes and voices-It was really a fun day!  ***You have 1 more day to join in to the monthly challenge at -> (click & go there!)

Really fun-slider style!

Hello!  I was really motivated to do another slider-style ATC (Artist trading Card) when I came upon the last week of every month challenge on Facebook : "More Than Words Challenges".  It is always to do a card, tag or ATC  (the challenge this month was to use the word "she") and the contributors do fabulously interesting work.  It really was a lot of fun to make something a little different!

Thanks for taking a peek! I really appreciate it!

What a Doll! @ Creative Embellishments!

Hello!  I am joining you today with a layout I did after my niece slept over -her 1st night EVER away from her parents!  We ended our time together at the toy store buying a new "dolly".  Marrah is a living doll herself!

 I popped the photo up with a piece of foam to allow for "tucking".

It's May 1st! A new monthly CHALLENGE at CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS!

Hello! I am here today with the month long challenge at (click & go!->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  We'd love to have you join us if you have some time for a chance to win $50 in products!  Join us with any project you'd like to do.  Be inspired by the following: (the "twist" is to stamp an image on your project!) Hope to see you there!

INSPIRATION:
 
MY PROJECT: 
This one was easy for me as my son has always been involved with music and bands.  This photo is from about 10 years ago in their "Metallica" pose (My son, Kevin, is on the right). I stamped music notes on the fringed black circle. My sons actual guitar pick is on the lower right corner of the photo.
 
I used a lot of CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS PRODUCTS-that is really easy because I love chipboard and I am totally in love with flair buttons! Links follow to those products I used here:
