Good morning ladies. What in the world happened to the weekend, it just flew by? I did manage to get some scrapping in. Kel came over to the scrapcave Friday night, we picked our winner and then she helped me make invitations for my youngest son's birthday party. I will post them soon, they came out super cute. Thanks Kel for your help! Here is my take on the ink an punch challenge.

Close up of my journaling tag. I used some bakery twine around the end and the circle punch is 1.5" and I stamped it with at Tim Holtz clock. I also inked all my circles.

I used the Martha Steward around the page punch for the double scallops here. Also a close of up of another Tim Holtz Stamp (I love the saying).

Here is the entire page. These are my two boys, 9 years ago, my little guy was two here. Where in the world does the time go?
The red paper is DCWV Doodlin' around pack. I love, love this pack. The brothers title is from my stash, I inked that, because it was a bright blue. 1.5" circle punch for my circles and StampinUp punch for the corners of the pictures. Quick Quote chalk inks, Maraschino Cherry and Green Tea. I really do love the Quick quotes chalk ink. They are awesome!


  1. tfs really neat and love the layout you used it on.

  2. I saw this in person and it is gorgeous! Love all the little circles and that scallop punch!

  3. Great LO Lau.. I can't wait to see it in person! great use of bakery twine. I've got to get out there and get some of mine on a few pages. Folks.

    BTW, I can see lots of grass (at least that's what I think it is, it's been so long!) in my backyard. Not sure what's up with the front yard...hmmm! Lots of melting this too??
