Another day of TV and Scrapping

HI all!  
My hubby has me hooked on Downton Abbey...I've been watching season 1 and 2 the past few days trying to catch up!  This show is so good!
Luckily, it's all downloaded to my computer, so I can watch and scrap.  :)

I'm starting off the weekend playing with a sketch from Little Yellow Bicycle:

I broke into the LYB stash and played with my all time favorite "Paradise" collection.
I added the tiny ball trim from my own stash.

Next, I used the first February sketch from Let's Get Sketchy:

While I was in the stash looking for LYB, I found these goodies!  I totally forgot I had this fun line!  I love the flowers and  butterflies.  I guess I should look through my stash more often....

And finally, I didn't use a sketch!  Wow..sooo unusual for me...
Kristi B posted a challenge this month which was QUITE difficult for me.
This one took me a while to figure out...
We were challenged to use embossing, mustaches and pennants.
Nice mix, huh??

We particpate in the Dr. Seuss reading day at Target every year.  Last year, of course, we were celebrating the Lorax.  The kids were given these fun mustaches.  They wore them all. day.long.  
The background paper is from Coredinations Cardstock.  I used an embossing template and a burnishing tool to create the polka dot pattern down the left side.  And then I covered some chipboard pennant pieces and added some Thicker alphas.
I totally love this page!  I'm glad it all came together!
The FUN Dr. Seuss ribbon came from BestRibbons.  They have the CUTEST character ribbons ever!
I was able to stock up on Dr. Seuss, Superheroes and of course, DISNEY! 

Hope you all had a great scrapping day!

Have a great evening!!
