A Layout for FUN!

I finished a layout yesterday that I created just for FUN! It isn't for a challenge, it's not based on a sketch, it is just something that I wanted to work on! What a concept! I used some new Sassafras Indie Girl papers. I love them! These are photos of Emily marching in her first high school parade on the 4th of July. Wow, was it HOT! What a trooper! I love the way this turned out!

I hope you're having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

I Lost A Bunch Of Comments!

Blogger changed the moderate/publish/reject part of the comment process, and unfortunately, I selected the wrong thing, and I deleted about 25 - 50 comments on my blog! I'm so sorry to all of you who left a wonderful comment that I ended up accidently deleting!! I guarantee I read it and appreciate it very much!

Two posts in one day! Look out!! I created this page for a challenge at ScrapFIT. My Scrap-Friendzy design team friend Jenny told me about this site! She's a new member of their design team! I checked out the blog, and they are celebrating their 1st Birthday, and they have a Wet & Wild challenge going on! On my layout, I used my Tim Holtz mask alphabet for the title, and I used three shades of Glimmer Mist to do the title. Love it! I also used the glimmer mists on a piece of the October Afternoon paper. I punched it with my threading water punch before I used the mists, and after the mists dried, I rewet the paper with water, crumbled it, pleated it, and then sewed it down. I was going for a ruffle effect! I also used a lot of paint and ink on this layout! Last in the "wet" category, I added some distress Stickles. I got some fabric squares from Stitch Steals a short time ago, and I sewed two of them to the background. The fabric is Basic Grey Urban Couture. Cool! It adds an awesome texture to the layout. I also pleated a piece of Cosmo Cricket, and placed that to the right of the photo. Anyway, I LOVE ♥ Lumiere from Beauty & The Beast, and I was THRILLED to see this huge statue of him in the Downtown Disney Store in Orlando! He's fabulous! I'm loving the way this page turned out, and I'm thrilled to have another page for my Disney album DONE!!

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

The Box

I created this page during a layout tag game! I love these silly pics of the girls! The Weber Grill box was on the front lawn, and when there is a box, there are kids who want to play in the box, no matter how old they are!! I used October Afternoon papers and journaling stickers, Jillibean Soup letters, and Scenic Route flowers. The little chipboard piece is by Love Elsie. I hand cut the little pennant banner! I love the way this turned out!

It's unbelievably hot and humid here. I'm tired of the excessively horrible summer weather! I'm ready for fall!! ♥ Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Welcome Home Banner & Clip It Up Posts!!

First off . . . my first Clip It Up post is up on the blog!! There is also a post introducing me! I would love it if you would comment on both posts! I want Renee and the girls to know that I have amazing scrappy friends! I love, love, love my Clip It Up Jumbo! It's totally COOL!

Next, I am missing Emily so much!! I wanted to make her a welcome home banner. What started off as a small banner ended up as a HUGE banner! It took on a life of its own! I love it though, and I hope Emily does too! I can't wait for her to see it!

I hope she likes it!! I hope you have a GREAT weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

More Bo Bunny!

Here are a few more Bo Bunny projects! I altered a plaque for a very good blogging friend of mine! This is for her adorable daughter Evie! I used Bo Bunny Jazmyne! I love the way this turned out! I did a lot of detail cutting for the flower cluster, and then I added two strips of paper that I used my threading water punch on. I had to cut the backside of the strips to get them to curve around the plaque, and the effect is just so CUTE to me! I love the scallop edge! Finally, I added two Tim Holtz tickets! Dream and Giggle . . . perfect for a beautiful baby!

This is the "before" shot of the plaque! I pick these up at Michael's and alter them.

Here's a quick card that I made. I used the Jazmyne letters that I painted. I really love the way they turned out! This card uses both Jazmyne and Mama-Razzi! I used my Tim Holtz Tattered Floral die to make the flower. Love it!

Here's another card that uses Jazmyne! I love the subtle glitter on the Bo Bunny papers! Just beautiful!

Last, I made a bookmark from a Mama-Razzi paper. I love the sentiment "Life is Beautiful". How true! I added a gorgeous Mama-Razzi flower stack too! I love bookmarks!

I hope you're having a great day. Thanks for stopping by!

Bo Bunny Layouts!

I decided to try out for the Bo Bunny design team, and here are two of the projects that I submitted. The first one uses Jazmyne. The letter stickers that come with this collection are a pinkish / light purple. I wanted them to be a darker color for this layout, so I painted them sage green. I think they turned out awesome, and I love the way they look on this paper! The Jazmyne papers are GORGEOUS! Just enough sparkle! I did some sewing and lots of detail cutting. I featured a self-portrait that I took with the girls on Mother's Day! I love this page!

This layout features Mama-Razzi! I love this paper collection! The layout features a very cool photo of Dave on one of his Harleys. I did a lot of distressing and layering. I also added paint to the edges of the papers. I cut the title on my Cricut. I think the sentiment "The very best photos are never posed" is perfect for this page!

I hope you're having a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
