What a fun site!!!

A fun addition to cards and layouts is a Word Cloud (a collection of words that are randomly arranged in a group). It is super easy to do at You could probably do these for projects, signs, etc.

I found about word clouds from one of the challenges at My Sketch World's Spring Crop.

Check out the Mother's Day card I made for my mom.

Crop at My Sketch World

Through Alecia's blog (thanks for the info girl) I found that My Sketch World is having a crop starting tomorrow. So I registered at their Forum and can't wait to see what they have in store starting tomorrow. Hope to see some familiar faces over there too!!!!

Another fun challenge at Two Spotted Dogs

Alecia is hosting a fun challenge at Two Spotted Dogs: use BLACK & BROWN on your layout. Can you really mix black & brown together?? Yes you can based on the fab layouts that the girls have posted.

Here’s my page (another page for our Disney World album) – based on a sketch from Got Sketch?

By the way, here’s the second page of the layout:

Journaling Tips

Thought that this was some great info included in this morning's Making Memories e-mail:

Wendy Sue Anderson is the queen of journaling. Just a visit to her blog and you'll see the creativity that pours from her fingertips. We asked her to share her top five tips for creating meaningful journaling on any project.

1. Keep it Real: "Don't just write a lot of fluff to take up space. If you don't have anything to say, then let the page speak for itself!"

2. Use Your Blog: Your blog, your Facebook updates, even your Twitter posts can be a great source of journaling material!

3. Keep a Notebook: "I have one section for my son, and one for my daughter. When they say something cute, or when I just want to remember what they were doing on a certain day, I just jot it down."

4. Write by Hand: "I'm a big fan of handwritten journaling. My grandmother just passed away and I treasure anything she wrote by hand."

5. Make Lists! "Everything can become a list. Favorite memories, favorite restaurants, places visited. Just make it a simple list and your journaling is done!"
Have a really great day everyone!!!

F – use "F" in the title
E – use eyelets
S – use at least one star
T – have tearing

Please have your layout posted in the thread at Two Spotted Dogs by midnight on Sunday April 20th. After that date I’ll do a random drawing for a little goodie.
