Day 4: Karen Foster Sneak Peaks

Let me start off today and show you some projects that I was suppose to post yesterday.  I completly forgot that I did "Basketball" projects for Karen Foster...what a numbnut I am.  I found these images when I was editing for todays post on Scrapbooking and Friends...oh well.

Here is a card, layout and showbox frame I did using the new Karen Foster Basketball line.  BTW...totally love this line, it matches my boys uniforms perfectly.  I love when a line does makes scrapping so much easier.

 I am totally into square cards...have been for a long time now.  This dimensional sticker worked will with the shape of this card.  And the little saying on the front has card written all over it.
 Love how these stickers worked for the inside of the card.  I am so into the insides of cards about you?
 Here is a layout I did...that is my cute little boy Grant and his travel team buddies.  Sorry, crappy photos for this one.
 A grouping of stickers, dimensional embellishments and thinments here.
 Love this grouping of rolled strips of paper.  Wish I did more...maybe for a future layout.
And a shodow box using all my left over elements plus some scrapper floss...this would make a great coaches gift if you used a team photo.

OK, so now for today's posting!
Scrapbooking and Friends

 I made this card using the Scrapbooking Line.  Great papers that can be used for more then just scrapbooking themed layouts.
 I fussycut this flower and added a sticker and bling brad as the center embellishment.
Love me some scrappers floss!
 Here is a desktop calendar I made.  I used so many elements from the scrappers line in this.  Stickers, bling, paper, scrapper floss...pretty  much everything I got to design with is in the book.  My retreat ladies will remember this book.  I was making this when I was away with them back in Nov.

 The calendar opens like a star.

And now for a layout, cruddy pictures...sorry.

How about a little sneak at the Friends line?

If you like butterflies then you will want to grab this sticker sheet.  They also fit perfectly over the butterfly paper.  All you need is a few pop dots and you are good to.

Well, I am finally done...sorry this one was soooo long!  Now about the CONTEST!
