Dare U 2 Digi & Scrap The Boys Challenges

New challenge blogs keep popping up all over the place ;)
I love trying them all! Most of all, I like the challenge of combing challenges together!
But this time, just couldn't, LOL! it was too hard ;)
I needed a "Thinking of You" card and was inspired by Dare U 2 Digi Stamp Challenge #11 - Color Combo "Chocolate Orange"!
Here's my digi card... I love flower images! but I feel that I really need to practice my coloring in order to make them look more realistic... I love the orange dp from Stampin Up, but I cannot remember which one it is... Georgia Peach??? maybe? ;) Digi Card Details: Paper(s): American Crafts White CS; Stampin Up DP; Making Memories DP. Stamp(s): Sweet n' Sassy "Forget Me Not" Digi Stamp Set. Ink(s): Copics: YR07, R05, G07, YG23, Y21, Y08. Accessories: Fiskar Lace Corner Punch; Raspberry Ribbon - Brown. The next challenge that I found is strictly for boys!!!

NO girls allowed!!! ;)

Scrap the Boys challenge for the month of June is to create a layout using Red, Black and one additional color of your choice as the color theme... with an additional theme -

"Boys and their Toys"...

Here's my layout... Seriously! My boys are sooo spoiled!

I asked them to clean up their toys...

and, Nicky seriously, looked me straight in the eyes and said...

"What toys?"

I almost screamed! LOL!

Look at those guilty, adorable lil faces ;)

12x12 Layout Details: Paper(s): Prima "Hello Spaceboy" by Valerie Foster; Stampin Up Red CS; Prism Yellow CS. Accessories: Prima Glitter Stars; Making Memories Metallic Star Brads; Making Memories Silver Shimmer Alpha Stickers; unknown yellow self-sticking trim.

Thank you all for your sweet comments!

They mean the world to me!

It encourages me to keep blogging and try new things :)

Thank you :*)
