Hi ho, hi ho, to basketball I go...

...after posting a couple of layouts I did a couple of days ago. It seems my days have been super busy as of late, but I did get in the craft room for these babies. I have to be quick, as Rileigh has basketball this morning (and it's only about 4 degrees outside...I think I'll stay in my fleece pants!)

This one I made for a challenge over at sketches4all, but wouldn't you know the challenge ended a day earlier than I had written down! Oh well. I'll share it here.

I used a Pagemaps sketch, their current monthly challenge on their blog. It was fun to work with, I switched up the locale of the pics for mine. This made my pics fit better. Papers are all out of my scrap box...I know the baby themed papers are Daisy Hill. The other two: not so sure. Prima flowers. That flannel gingham button in the center of the pink flower is from The Chip Chop Shop. "Baby Love" metal element from MM. That cute shaker buggy circle thingy (don't you love my descriptions LOL) is from an unknown maker, received in a box from a friend who was getting rid of supplies. Very cool! The purple shape behind the photos cut from my Cricut, the Playtime cartridge. Random glitter brad. Title EK alpha stickers. Random ric rac. Pebbles I-Kan-Dee "memories of baby" twist tie. Doodles everywhere. Random bling.

This one was made for challenge 6 for the Bling On 2011 event at sketches4all, asking for glimmer, glitter, the color purple, and flowers.

No sketch for this one. I tried to go my own way here, and am pleased with the results. Used my own shimmery mist made with Pearl Ex Interference Violet all over the paper, hard to tell here as we were hit with a storm and I had to get pics taken. There is a subtle, purple shimmer all over the place! All of the paper strips are My Mind's Eye. Random chenille, glued in a flourishy way. Prima flowers (one with a Target dollar bin fabric brad, another a random glitter brad. The big dimensional flower is handmade by Leann over at The Chip Chop Shop, I attached an Imaginisce Chantilly charm with a MM pastel brad in the center for a little added pizazz. Daisy Hill alpha stickers/file folder tab sticker. White Blossom glitter alpha, and sorry to say the metal charm (which says "memories") and the mom & me sticker are unidentifiable. What can I say, I have an extensive stash! The purple photo corners are also pretty old school, I think they are 13 years old! The stamped photo corner is a Tim Holtz stamp.

That's all for now, I am in the middle of a couple of for a friend's birthday, one for the shop. I'll post them later (just have to wait for the last layer of Mod Podge to dry.) Hope you all enjoy the day! Time for me to subject myself to bitter cold and take little Ms. Rileigh to basketball :)
