Peachy Keen Sketch/photo inspiration

Things around here are beginning to settle down.  My daughter moved home with 2 dogs.  A lot of drama.  Finally I set up most of my craft room.  Last Friday I met Diana at the Scrap Expo in my home town of Pleasanton, CA.  Donna met up with us for a short while.  It is so much fun to get together with bloggy friends..We took a fun class together, put on by Heartfelt Creations.  Then we did some shopping.  I got tons of paper and a few dies.  At Stamps of Life I purchased quite a few dies and some stamps.  I can't wait to use the 2 Sizzix Flipit dies I picked up.  After the show Diana and I grabbed a quick dinner.  Thank you Diana.  Today I purchased a desk that I saw at the Expo.  It is by The Original Scrapbox.
I made my first Easter card.Cut It Up Challenge Blog is having a spring or St Patricks Day Challenge.  I used a Sketch from Peachy Keen, only to find out that I missed the deadline on the sketch challenge.  No worries, the papers and colors I used are perfect for the Photo/Color Inspiration challenge.CLICK HERE
