 Today's post are "Sidekick" scrapbook pages made with dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs. I am creating a small scrapbook documenting fun times with me and my guy.

We love our walks through the Sunflower fields with his dog, Sadie. So quiet and peaceful.  I'm using these pages as inspiration for this week's "Harvest" challenge at Crazy4Challenges! The dies used for today's pages are linked up below....and thanks for stopping by today.

Craftily yours, Karen

Christmas Cards - Getting Started

 Posting today for Elizabeth Craft Designs. I'm finally getting started on this year's Christmas cards, and today's post features three of them all using the same sketch (inspired by this week's Crazy4Challenges Sketch Challenge).

Go check out the ECD blotg for more details, and thank you for stopping by today!

 I "scrapbooked" another page for the My Guy-N-Me Sidekick sized planner. We have so many fun adventures, and I love being able to journal them!

PBR stands for Professional Bull Rodeo. What a hoot that is! Those bulls are crazy, and the bull-riders are even crazier! I thought that the Cow die from Elizabeth Craft Designs was the perfect addition.

This is the back of my page. The gold in my page is where I randomly added gold heat embossing to kraft cardstock. The top of the tag below is a stamp from the Background Stamps 2 collection.

That fun pocket page holds so much.  All of these photos and tags were stuck in those pockets. Love that "Epic tag"!  

Thanks for stopping by today.

Christmas Poinsettias

 I was SO happy to finally get the new Florals 12 from Elizabeth Craft Designs. It makes the most gorgeous poinsettias! Here are my first two cards made with it.

Oh, I just love them. I colored them using Peeled Paint and Candied Apple Distress Inks. I used some gold prills for the centers, and the sentiment is from the Classic Christmas Sentiments.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Places I've Been - Oregon

 I'm having such fun reliving some recent journeys for the "Places I've Been" journal. Today's post is about a trip I made to Lincoln City, Oregon about four years ago. My parents were vacationing there, and I decided to go spend a couple days with them. I had the good fortune of getting to see a total eclipse! Here are my planner pages:

More details on how I created these pages can be found on the Elizabeth Craft Design blog. I'm also submitting the "front" page as inspiration for the sunrays post at Crazy4Challenges this week.

Thank you for stopping by!

Craftily yours, Karen
