I Have Some Layouts -Several Challenges today

Oh my goodness I am so thrilled I was able to spend some time just playing with my supplies.
This weekend I finished  so many layouts.
Actually some fit challenges and I used sketches, oh it was pure joy to relax and spend some time with myself  and put together some layouts.

Page Maps Blog had a great sketch up this week and it worked great for some pictures I wanted to use.
These pictures from my daughters visit with her friend when she was home the last time.Those two are just so lovely and this paper-That's Amore- from Close to my Heart fit the pictures. I used some of the matching Stickease  for embellishments and then added the journaling shapes.
The ribbon I used is from Martha Stewart, she has such beautiful colors. (I added some to my giveaway above).
I actually have my sewing machine set up all the time so I can add stitches to any layout...wasn't sure if I liked the dark but it is ok.
This layout qualifies fro Scrap and Stamp Saturday challenge this week on using BUTTONS .
Crafty Creations- Happy Or Sweet
Lasting memories -Buttons and Bows

My second layout today is for Sassy Lil Sketches using there Sketch And Dirty Scraps - using IMPACT.
Dirty Scraps has a challenge up today using the prompt 
I think of a car wreck when I hear the word IMPACT, but it can mean so many different things. An abusive parent can IMPACT your life in detrimental ways.
A wonderful teacher can IMPACT your life in amazing ways, a loving mother can IMPACT your life forever. You can be scarred or shaped with it. Scrap a page with the word IMPACT in it, make it strong, make it you!
I love to work with Pinky's prompt - sometimes it can be very therapeutic.This is something that has been wearing on my mind so I liked to put it down on paper. IT IS NOT ADDED TO INSULT ANYONE-just how I feel.

I finally got to use some of my Close To My Heart -Grace paper packet.Seemed to fit with the mood of this layout. I hate using my pictures but it is a layout that will fit into my personal album just for me.
I used flowers, ribbon, antique lace all from my sewing supplies. The green ribbon is also from Martha Stewart.
I used Close to My Heart Irresistibles for the lettering...these are great because I could ink them with Twilight color to match the paper.The circle bling is also from CTMH. I used Stampology leaf stamp from Autumn Leaves for underneath the letters.
This layout qualifies for;
Create For Fun challenge- Flowers 
Wild Orchid Challenge- say it with flowers
