40th Party in the Rain (12 x 12 layout) - LMCB 85... using stencils

Oh where oh where have I been?  Well no where.  HERE!  Just not in the blogging world lately.  It seems that when it rains it pours!  I won't bore you with the details, for I'm pretty sure we all experience LIFE.  :-)So I am hoping my post tonight is the start of some craftiness to come this weekend.  I have lots of mojo in my head... so stay tuned!

I have a layout that I want to share that I created for the current challenge going on over at Lasting Memories.  LMCB 85 is to use Stencils.  If you don't own stencils, make up your own or trace something.  That counts!!  And we want to see what you can do!!  There is a $10.00 Gift Certificate up for grabs.  You have until Saturday 4/28 at 9pm EST to join us!!


My stencils are the Balloons.  I didn't think I owned any... then I remembered giving my daughter some a few years ago.  So I, for the first time, borrowed some of her supplies.  I think they are ancient.  Here is a photo...
Does anyone recognize these?  I want to say OLD Creative Memories??  But I could be very wrong!!

My layout was also inspired by the challenge over at The Paper Variety which was to "Scraplift" one of the DT projects or create something based off of one of their tutorials.  The challenge is already closed... but being that I was inspired... here is the DT project from CAROLI that I followed...




And last but certainily not least... I am entering my layout with some former DT friends of mine over at the  4 Crafty Chicks.  Their challenge this week is NO STAMPING.  My layout is all paper, die cuts, stencils, sticker alphas and a jounaling pen.  Fun things to see over there... go take a peak.

That's it for tonight.  I hope to be back tomorrow with more inspirations for you!!  Thanks for visiting!
