100+CARTRIDGE BLOG HOP

starting off with GRAPHICALLY SPEAKING:  i made my grandson his '9th' birthday card.  if you don't have this cartridge, i recommend getting it.  there are so many graphics for all different occasions.  a 'must have' in my book!


i apologize for the 'sideway view'.  i hope you don't get a kink in your neck looking at it.

my next post is a disappointment for me.  i'm not pleased with it for several reasons.  the barn is 'too big', and our barn is white, not red.  don't know what i was thinking....that said, i did use many different cartridges:  COUNTY FAIR (title, barn, fence COUNTRY LIFE (chickens), SIMPLY SCARECROW (corn husk), CELEBRATE WITH FLOURISH, (sun & clouds) 50 STATES and LIFES A BEACH (seagulls).  the only part of this layout i actually like, are the pics of two of my handsome buddies.

PAUL


BUCK




my last projects are from: SCANDINAVIAN CHRISTMAS.  i really like this cart, although there is more piecing together than i care for.  the end result is very pleasing.  i will be using this a lot for my christmas cards this year.  maybe you're on my 'list'?  here are 3 cards i've made so far.

#1


#2


#3


thats it for this months blog hop.  i sure hope you enjoy everyones creations.  we have many talented ladies and i'm thankful to be a part of this design team.
if you're not a follower, i'd love for you to be, and if you'd like to leave a word, i'd enjoy that too. 
here is the lineup for your next stop.

I love the two-page layout! Most barns when you think of a country barn are red so I think it looks awesome. I think that white would actually pop out too much but I would have to see it. Great projects on all of them!

Debbie said...

Remember that when we create Lo to record are thoughts and memories, if it conveys these then you have captured it right, not every detail needs to be perfect just like we are not perfect all the time, just cherish the memories

I know what you mean when you don't like something you have made. I have had many projects end up in the trash only to have my daughters retrieve them and keep them for their room. I would have to say I love your Lay out. And to tell you barns come in all colors my brother has a purple yes I said purple barn.
