My Creative Scrapbook - February

We successfully completed our annual Tour de Palm Palm Springs ride. While the temps were in the 40s at the start it turned out to be a beautiful sunny day. Here is the link to My Creative Scrapbook's sketch for February.

Stick It Down - January Card

Here is the card that I made for my Adopt-A-School teacher. I made another 38 cards for her to either give to her students or have them decorate for their parents. In place of the sentiment in the sketch from Stick It Down I replace it with the cute little dog from SU.

Stick It Down - January Single Page

This was our first training ride of the year. The trail was in relatively good shape and as you can see the weather was awesome for January. We are less than one month away from the Tour de Palm Springs so hopefully we get a few more rides in. For this layout I followed the single page sketch from Stick it Down.

Happy New Year!

It's been a busy few months and I haven't kept up with my scrapbooking. However I did manage to stay crafty over the holidays by making my first ever scarf which coincidentally matches one of my wool car coats perfectly. A few days ago I came across a cool video by Holly Pixels and decided to give it a try. Below are two family dog photos that I created using Procreate on an iPad.

My Creative Scrapbook - November

Sequoia 6x6 Wedding Card

A few weeks ago we had the honor of attending a wedding just outside of Sequoia National Park in Three Rivers, CA. Most of the elements from the wedding card were recycled from the wedding invitation.

Stick It Down - September 2-Page Layout

Several weeks ago we went to San Antonio, Texas for the first time. I thought these pictures would work well on a 2-page layout for Stick It Down . A good part of our trip included a 5-hour bike tour of the Missions including the Alamo. Highly recommended and super impressed with the City.

My Creative Scrapbook - July

My husband's grand niece and grand nephew flew to CA today all by themselves (aka "unaccompanied minors"). As you can see from their mom's FB post they were in tears until they got to visit the SWA cockpit. The inspiration for this page came from my favorite sketch artist Laura Whitaker over at My Creative Scrapbook.

Graduation

Tomorrow we're attending a graduation at Loma Linda University. I repurposed part of the announcement/invitation to create the card and used some really old stamps from SU.

Show Me the Money

I got the idea for this card from RobbyGurl's Creations. I obviously made a few modifications and stuffed it with $11 for my nephew's 11th Birthday!

Happy Mother's Day!

I made this card using paper left over from Cocoa Daisy's February Kit, "Shine Bright". I embossed the sentiment and added some rhinestones but otherwise used the paper as-is.

Happy Birthday - Over the Hill

I made this card for my step-father after seeing something similar on Pinterest. He's an outdoorsy kind of guy so I thought the theme was well suited for him.
