A 'Sweet' makeover and some scrapbooking

I'm back again with a couple projects for you. I was a *busy* girl yesterday. My hubby even called me a domestic diva, wowza! Along with all my SAHM duties I managed to clean the entire house, make a fabulous dinner for my family and make not one but TWO layouts and a card. Whew, I'm amazed just saying it all. I don't think I have done a scrapbook layout in a whole year but I was in the mood yesterday. So I seized the moment at nap-time and made this first one.
Little Man
 I decided to pull out my unopened pack of Echo Park Little Boy collection (because I'm a paper hoarder, lol). I also used two different Unity Stamp Co. kits of the month. I just love how this layout turned out. I got my ispiration from Becky Fleck's PageMaps. I find the jpeg archive very helpful when ever I need some scrapbook inspiration.

Now after my little people were in bed I was still just full of energy so I went down to my room and created this second layout with some more papers from the same Echo park collection.
Fair Fun
I didn't use any stamps on this layout but I just love how easy Echo Park makes it to put a layout together with all their coordinating stickers!

For my last project of the evening I needed to make remake a card for a local swap I'm in. Here is how we work it. You get a new card once a week from a different person in the group each time and you have two weeks to remake the card you recieved and send it back to the person you got it from. I decided to use the new Against the Grain stamp set I WON (I never win anything) from Sweet Stamp Shop.
Challenge Remake
Now to show you all the fabulousness of this 'Sweet' remake here is a close up.
My 'Sweet' remake
I used different colors of my Momento inks, a Silhouette Store cut, Swovarski crystals, a little ribbon from my stash and because of my need to use all my paper wisely I used a scrap left over from my Echo Park layouts above. This may be one of my favorite of the Sweet Stamp Shop Stamps.

I hope you enjoyed today's projects, remember I love to hear from you so I'd love it if you would leave me a comment on your favorite project :)
