OWH - ODBD March Challenge

The March challenge for Our Daily Bread Designs is to make the sentiment the main focus of your card. I love this stamp from Neat and Tangled. I heat embossed each of them to add a little dimension to these otherwise clean and simple cards.


At the time of this post, there are 33 entries. The goal is 50 so if you haven't linked up yet....hurry on over! Have a crafty day!

Picture Perfect Blog Hop

Welcome to the Picture Perfect Blog Hop! We encourage you to take a moment this week to print out those precious memories that are stored away in our phones and computers. With digital photography, I have taken tons of pictures but am so far behind on my scrapbooking. Printing them off will not only preserve them but encourage me to go ahead and tell the story of my life events.

In appreciation of your visit today, I am giving away this little bundle of blog candy! Simply visit, comment and follow each of the blogs below to be entered to win! Check back right here on this post Wednesday March 18th to see if you are the winner!
Congratulations to lucky #2! Please email your mailing address to msmith38652@gmail.com! Thank you all for hopping along with us.
This is a picture from our Honeymoon...in 2010! The map shows all the places we visited during our cruise. I think I will go back and add a dot to each of the ports. 
When it comes to scrapbooking, I want to showcase as many photos as I can with a smidge of journaling on the side. These photos are from our camping trip....in 2011....told ya I was behind :-) The layouts aren't complete but hey.....at least I have started the process! That's always the hardest part. I used the computer to create tags with descriptions about the canyon and I will add my hand written journaling at a later date.  
The trees, compass and titles were cut with my Cricut and the stars were created with a border punch.

  I added some red Stickles to the flame for that realistic effect.
 Technically, I think they call this GLAMPing lol
I bet we walked 20 miles up and down hill unloading everything at the camp site. Yes.....we had to lug it down this....um...staircase! We had a blast though and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! If you have any suggestions of what I could add to finish these layouts off, I would love to hear them.
And lastly, if you have some random pictures that really don't need to be scrapbooked, make some greeting cards! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to hop with us today. Your next stop is Theresa.                   See below for the complete lineup:
