Challenge Me Monday #64

Hi Everyone,
This weeks challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut is "Wedding Wishes." You must include the color white and a bell.
This challenge was a great one to participate in because I attended a friend's wedding at the end of May. So, I chose to do a scrapbook Layout. I took some pictures of the happy couple. I just have to print out my fav one to put in the frame.
I am happy with how it turned out. I used the couple's colors for the page, magenta and white. I love the sparkly coordinations paper!
I used:

Cricut Carts: Storybook (font) Wedding (Bells) and Plantin Schoolbook (Hearts)

Paper: Stampin Up and Coordinations (both of these cut well in the cricut)

Stamps: Doodle this from Stampin Up

Miscl. Rub ons and stickers from my stash, fine black pen, ribbon

Happy Monday! I have the summer off since I work in the school system. I will be posting a lot more since I have more time now!

Father's Day Card Challenge

Hi Everyone,
Here is a card that I made for Father's Day. It is also for a challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut. The challenge is to show Dad he is number 1 by making a special project just for him.
I enjoyed making this card with my new to me stamp set from Stampin up called Nature Prints. My Dad loves fishing and I can remember fishing with him since I was very little. So, the fish stamp is very fitting.
I used my imagine stock image to cut out the frame.
I used Stampin up products for the paper, ink, and pastels.
Have a great day!
