Color Me Happy!

Happy Halloween!! I'm so excited, because I worked on and finished up this layout today!! So, a few weeks ago, Jillibean Soup announced that they were giving away a kit from Coordinates Collections! Well, I WON the kit! I got it on Saturday, and WOW, I couldn't wait to work with it! I saw that there is a Color Me Happy challenge at ScrapFit. They want us to use lime green, orange, purple, and black! YES! It just so happens that my fantastic Black Magic kit from Coordinates Collections HAS those very same colors! The kit features Jillibean Soup and American Crafts, and I am crazy about it!! So, I found these photos of Jessica and Emily from 2004! We had gone to a health fair, and they got the doctor gowns, masks, and gloves! We came home, they grabbed "scalpels", and we took some pictures! LOVE these photos, and they totally work with this color scheme and kit! I also loved using the Jillibean Soup monster and "I'm watchin' you" sprouts! I think the sewing is an awesome finishing touch! Perfect!

I hope you have a SPOOKTACULAR Halloween!! Eat some candy!! Thanks for stopping by!

My Mind's Eye Sketch

My Mind's Eye posted another awesome challenge and sketch on their blog, and I've had my layout on my desk for over a week now, and I just got a chance to finish it!! I'm late for the challenge, but that's OK, because I love the way this turned out!! I have been wanting to use the Haunted collection! The flocking is awesome, and I love the die cuts and the brads! I did a lot of distressing and sewing on this layout. This page was fun to put together, and I just love this photo of Mary Poppins, Dorothy, and Toto!! You can click on the layout to see it larger!

I hope you're having a great day, and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Fall Layout

I used a wonderful October PageMaps sketch as inspiration for this layout! I used Little Yellow Bicycle products! I love this collection! I love fall, and I love to scrap fall photos! I did a lot of machine stitching on this page, and I finally used my i-rock to apply the rhinestones! I love it! I love seeing how much the girls have grown since 2006! Wow, times passes by so quickly! This is why we scrap . . . to capture these moments in time!!

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

Sassafras from Crafty Steals!

I am so thrilled to reveal more Crafty Steals projects that I created for Stephanie! She is featuring AMAZING Sassafras goodies today on the Crafty Steals site! What an amazing bargain! Thank you Stephanie for featuring ME again! I had so much fun creating with these amazing products!!

The Sassafras products are so bright, cheerful, and fun! I had a great time pulling out some older photos of the girls! Emily is totally adorable eating her ice cream cone in these photos! Could that patterned paper be any more perfect?

Next, I featured a wonderful photo of Jessica! Jessica walked at nine months! It was truly amazing! I went a little Dr. Seuss on the paper title, but I think it's perfect for this page! The big alphabets are fantastic! The Sassafras blossoms are also just wonderful! They add a lot of personality to my title!

I just laughed when I pulled out this photo of Emily! We had the cozy coupe in out basement, and she was always trying to pull in that BIG lion pillow into the car! Of course, she was also holding onto Elmo! Would you say "3 is a crowd"? I think so! She was a CRAZY DRIVER!!

Next, I created a couple of cards! The patterned papers are just gorgeous!

The Sassafras stamps are really fun too! I stamped a flower trio on the Bungle Jungle papers! Don't you just love Sassafras borders that are on the bottom of the papers?

To use the stamps even more, I did a little stamping on the inside of the cards too! Isn't that fun? RUN to Crafty Steals to snatch up some of these amazing Sassafras deals! You will NOT be disappointed! Crafty Steals and Stephanie are AWESOME!

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

Spider's Web Creations!

I got more fabulous goodies from the most awesome Stephanie at CraftySteals! She sent me the My Mind's Eye Spider's Web collection to work with! Oh my goodness, I love Halloween, I love this collection, and I love what I created!

Is this not the coolest layout ever!?! I love these papers! This is from Halloween 2006! Aren't the girls CUTE!?! I just love the way this turned out!

Here are my Candy Monsters! I love it! I did lots of stitching on this page! I cut that cool large shape on my Cricut Expression! The Pink Paislee glitter chipboard letters are the perfect touch!

Here's a fun, overly distressed card! I really like the way this turned out!

There were some fun spider elements in the collection, and I decided to create a Halloween card featuring them! Very cool!

Thanks Stephanie for the opportunity to play with more awesome goodies from CraftySteals! I really ♥ CraftySteals! I hope you're all having a great day, and as always, thanks for stopping by!
