2 Sketches 4 You (Kazan's Sketch 27), Use It Challenge #11, and some more Silverwood Book!

I know I haven't been around very much lately but I've completed all kinds of projects! Yeah! So here I am back! I've got 2 cards using Kazan's sketch 27 on 2 Sketches 4 You. The first one also incorporates most of the elements of Use It Challenge #11:

Square Card (got that)
Summer Theme (got that)
Ribbon (got that), Twine (couldn't figure out how to get that in!), and Flower (mine is hawaiin)
Punches (since I'm really into die cuts, I had to use my handy corner rounder because I don't have many punches any more!)

The die cuts are all from the cricut Life's a Beach cartridge ~ very fun!

I'm using this Aloha cards for my daughter's birthday thank you's as she had a hawaiin themed party!

My son's birthday was the day after my daughters so I needed thank you's for him also. I used the sketch again! I used the big circle words from the Cutting Cafe (see blogs I follow to the right to find out how you too can get these!), You're far out is a club scrap stamp, the world is a quickutz and the rocket is a sizzlet!

This card looks totally different than the other one!

Several weeks ago, I left off on my silverwood altered books! I've actually finished them and have more pages to post than these! It does feel good to have a completed project!

Silverwood is an Amusement Park in Northern Idaho. The pictures are all from July 2008.

Thunder Canyon is a really cool water ride! The words Thunder Canyon are from the cricut Stamped cartridge, wet and wild are from Cricut Don Juan, and the 2 water words are from cricut Graphically Speaking (loving this cartridge).

These are more pictures from Thunder Canyon! H2O is from cricut Graphically Speaking and Everywhere is from cricut Lyrical Letters!

The kids went on this ride something like 8 times! They had such a good time!

I love these pictures ~ if you look close you can see water just dripping off them!

"until we are" is cricut Alphalicious and Soaked is Revolution Blossom - the little waves in the letters are quickutz!

Besides finishing these books, I also finally finished painting our patio cover. It took weeks and 4 gallons of paint. At one point I tripped getting off the ladder and really hurt my elbow and arm (even went to the doctor and had it x-rayed but luckily it was not broken!!!!). My dad put up a cool drip system, I put up rope lights and some lanterns, planted some hanging pots and trying 2 topsy turvies for a green pepper and tomato. I also planted a bunch of plants in the yard and put together a little table and the bottom of a loveseat for a nice little sitting area on the patio! I even used plastic spray paint and redid a plastic bench! Loving it! Now that most of that is done, I'm back to scrapping and card making!

Have a great week and hopefully I will see you back here soon!

As the lucky recipient of these cards - I must say they are totally cool! I really, really love the Hawian theme card -- it has so much dimension and color -- makes it feel sunny & tropical in the midst of a thunderstorm!

Your use of Graphically Speaking in the Silverwood books is inspiring! I've got the cart but never used it yet....

Keep up the painting! My next indoor project is to paint the powder room.
