.... and here we are -  the beginning of June!!  Can you believe it?  I know I can't!  Well I got over the night of hosting for Prom night (I have no idea how many people were at the house yesterday evening - but it was a lot).  

Here are a couple of photos, of the evening, which ended in the Limo getting a flat at the venue, and the kids not getting home until after 1am.

.... and so with the new month comes a new creative challenge over at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  This month the challenge is based on the following sketch:

SNSSC20 - Due May 25

Here is what I came up with this month:

The Cicadas are still with us, so I am still in bug mode, and used a few more images from Set 156 - Bugs, which were used in my previous post. You can find full details here.

You can check here to see what the other designers did with this sketch and get all the details on how to enter and win some fun prizes.  You have the whole month of June to enter.  I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

'Till next time!



  1. What a fun card. Love the spider web and how it's dimensional and transparent in places.

  2. That just puts a huge smile on my face. I just love that little bug LOL..
    The prom photos were lovely. All the girls had gorgeous dresses! To bad about the limo breaking down, but it will be a story for later.

  3. Fabulous card, love that bug and all the details on your card! Love the spiderweb!!!

  4. Your daughter is beautiful, Shona! Prom time is such a fun time! (Expensive, but fun!) Love the adorable bug card! Such a great use of the folder for something other than Halloween!

  7. You have a lovely daughter! What wonderful pictures. Your card is so cute! You did a great job!

  8. Awesome take on the sketch Shona. Great spider web. Such a stunning photo at the limo. I am sure they had fun while waiting for the flat to be fixed.

  9. Don't they all look swish Shona. I'll bet they had a ball.
    Smashing card too sweetie. I could say cute as a bug in a rug (wink)

  11. Hey Shona, looks like blue was a favorite color at prom? I am sure the kids weren't too unhappy with the flat tire either.
    I had to smile at your card. At I scrolled down I was thinking Halloween. Not! Very creative use of bugs. You always come up with such fun ideas.

  12. This card had sold a lot of Elmer's!!! They love it in the store:)


Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share in part of your day. I would love to hear what you think about my latest creation!
