First off, I'll start with my Wednesday Design team project for Little Scraps of Heaven.
With Mother's Day around the corner I only felt it was appropriate to start honoring those that we love and who give so much every day.
I made this Mother's Day card with the bird from Gnome in My Garden set over at LSHD.
The tree branch file is a free file that I picked up HERE.
I really do like the simplicity of this card. Most of my items are very detailed ... cluttered, in a sense, But I like it that way :) However, I really liked this too :)
My second project is not a design team project, but something that is hopefully kickstarting me back into listing things on ebay. If you happen to follow my items that I sell you've probably noticed that you haven't seen anything out there for a few weeks. Well, last night I had a vision ... an inspiration ... and I stayed up WAY TOO Late in the evening to pull it together. Oh ... but I am so happy that I did. I really felt that was what I needed. Perhaps just that idea in my head to make me motivated to see it on paper. I don't even think I yawned the whole time creating it :) This layout is using some of my new FAVORITE papers by Jillibean-soup. This line is the Chilled Strawberry soup line and I just can't get enough of it ... I think I may need a few more pieces. It's one of those papers that I will truly be sad when it's gone. MUST STOCK UP NOW .. he he

I used one of the Little Scraps of Heaven bear designs on this layout and just adjusted the positions to suit my needs. The bear pattern can be found HERE. I love the rough edged bear!
I hope that you have a great kick start to your weekend!
Take care all.
PS .. Keep an eye out for tomorrows post ... I have challenged the Design team to create something unique. The Little Scraps of Heaven Facebook Fanpage will have the details tomorrow.
