Challenged For Sure!

Hello everyone! I have lots of things to share with you today! Two layouts and a card to be exact. First of all I completed the sketch for Design by Diana. Every layout I make from her sketches come together so easily and end up being some of my favorite ones! This sketch was no exception. I knew instantly what I wanted to do with this sketch:

I made a layout about Amory and how she is not your average girl. This child constantly tests my patience, my heart strings, and my ability to stand back (when I know that she shouldn't be doing whatever her fearlessness has gotten her into). On the LO #1 is Lemolade (not a misspell - this is how she pronounces it) and oranges - her favorite yummies, #2 is a direct quote from her "You are Driving Me Nuts" which she frequently says to her daddy (and sometimes me) when she has had enough of our annoying and silly presence, #3 is about her ability to ask thirty two questions in a row and our tendency to answer Because I said so, #4 is about her favorite things - bugs, playing outside and sports (she has amazing natural ability in that department). I might add another circle about how she always says the prayer before meals - Amory considers this as her responsibility - and at dinner her prayer is always the same - "Thank you for making this lunch and dinner for us - Amen" - although we are only blessing dinner we might as well thank the Big Guy for lunch again! And the LO about my sweet crazy Amory -

Next on the list of challenges was SPCC - the color combo site - and the color combo this week was:
For this color combo I made a card and a layout - I was able to combine challenges from other sites for these projects (don't you love when that happens!?)

Okay first a thank you card where I added pink to the original color combo and completed a challenge for the MSW crop (to use numbers on a card)-

100% Sweet of You

And the second is a layout with a sketch from Let's Scrap, following the SPCC Color Combo, and the Shrek Challenge over at Scrap Whispers (the animals on the page) -
What A Hoot
Thank you for stopping by today - Have a Blessed Day!
