Cocoa Daisy May

Anyone else have that scare with blogger last night? Not being able to comment or check comments? Glad it's fixed, yikes!
Over the weekend, after we got home from vacation, I spent some time at the Cocoa Daisy Crop. Lots of inspiration and challenges. Here's what I contributed:
My Challenge was called Green thumbs, it was a product challenge. I like to limit myself on what I start with sometimes, makes it easier to begin. You can always add more. :) The buttons (Cosmo cricket material girl and Lily bee rub-ons are from add-ons, everything else from the main kit.) Wasn't easy to hit those circles on the AC Dear Lizzy paper with the printer. :)
The next one was from Kim's Challenge, it was an inspiration piece challenge. I love those. Here's what I made:
That Paperie paper is in the main kit, and if you have young-ish kids, you are going to need it by the truck load. Great for boys or girls, and esp. baby pics. This layout is about my grandmother who taught me sign language (her brother was deaf). This means "I really love you." J's pinky is supposed to be up, but close enough for government work. :) I made the office tie, I don't know what else to call it. I used a circle punch and tied with jute. The string represents a tying of my grandmother and J together, even though they have never met.
Next was Christine's challenge, Dear you. Another inspiration piece challenge with a twist. The layout needed to have a letter on it. See what I mean about that Paperie paper? Everything but the rub-on is from the main kit here. I put my photos over the pink parts, made it more boy-ish. :)
And last was Christine's food challenge. I took this photo with my crackberry, and I really am liking how these are turning out so I think I'll take more pictures with my phone.
Lots of American crafts on here. I used the lily bee rub-ons on the sticker (from the main kit) at the top. The Dear Lizzy fabric paper is in the paper add-on, it's sooo neat to touch. I cut it with my paper trimmer, as long as you leave the backing on it's fine.
So many beautiful things this month from Cocoa Daisy-a beautiful main kit, the fabric paper,etc in the patterned paper add-on. Cosmo cricket alphas, Webster's pages sparklers and ribbon, Lilybee rub-ons in the add-ons, and that's just off the top of my head. I have at least 2 more pages I'd like to scrap with this kit due to the colors, but we'll see how it goes.
I participated in the Pebbles/AC blog swap this week, I'll have a layout and 2 cards up soon. Happy Tuesday to you! Until tomorrow. (PS the giveaway is still open below.)
