12x12 Summer Layouts

Hi all!! It's the weekend!! Yippee! What do you all have planned? I don't know what kind of trouble I will get into yet! lol Sorry I have been kinda MIA since my hop! I have been so busy with the kiddos! I love Summer but it's busy, busy!! I have been in my craft room creating, getting ready for the 3 Girl JAM "Beautiful Bows" Blog Hop on Sunday (that I was asked to be a special guest designer for!!!) and for some other upcoming things so I haven't had anything to post. I did finally finish a 2 page layout tonight. Here it is..
Sorry the pictures aren't very good. It's always hard to get a good picture at night in my house! Here is each page up close..

I used papers and ribbon that I bought from Erica's Craft Room Store on a live U stream a while back. She has great deals! I am not sure of the brand of the papers but I love them!  All of the summer words were cut from a piece of 12x12 patterned paper. I cut the little pail and shovel from my H2O Cricut Cart. Fast and simple! I hope you like my Layouts today! Thank you so much for stopping by! If you become a follower be sure to leave me a comment, so I can follow you back! PLEASE plan on stopping by for the 3 Girl JAM Beautiful Bows Blog Hop this Sunday, July 1st! It will start at the 3 Girl JAM blog!  Have a great weekend!!

Well Owl Be Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Well Owl Be" Blog Hop!!!

Today is the day that my
love for everything OWLS
is showcased
through the creative talent of my amazing friends
at each Blog Hop Stop!

If you love OWLS as much as I do,
you won't want to miss a single project.
Each person in the hop has dedicated their
time to creating any project they wanted
as long as it included

There are some wonderful prizes up for grabs along the way, too . .

 I am offering this fabulous grand prize to one lucky follower! This prize includes the "Winter Lace" Cricut cartridge, white Cricut vinyl, Core'dinations Pearls paper pack, misc. stickers, glitter glues, felt owls, gold doilies, and much more!

In order to be eligible to win the GRAND PRIZE above you must do the following:
1. Be a follower of each Blog on the Hop
2. Leave a comment at each Blog on the Hop
3.  Once you have finished, please return to Heather Lynn's blog 
and leave a comment stating you have done both!

I will choose the grand prize winner using on Monday, June 25, 2012.

So, a while back I went to a thrift store and found this little key cabinet for just 35 cents~

It wasn't horrible but not anything exciting either. lol I grabbed some paint, My Mind's Eye paper, 3 Girl JAM crinkle ribbon, K.Andrew Design Stamps and got to work. Here it is now~
Not bad for 35 cents, eh? ;) Since this was my first hop, I wanted to go all out so I also made a mini album. It's filled with photos of owls all around my house. Here are a few pages~

 After doing the mini album, I had a bunch of scraps together so I threw a card together~
Hope you all enjoyed my projects today! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for coming by and hopping along with us today! You will be amazed at all of my friends' owl creations!

Now you will HOP over to the my beautiful and talented friend Jessica's!
