I've been feeling very creative lately!  I love when I have time to CREATE!!  I did this page for a challenge to create a layout about me.  I really don't have a problem scrapping myself.  I know a lot of people prefer not to scrap about themselves, but I'm fine with it.  I had just gotten all of the washi tapes in the Indie Chic collection from My Mind's Eye, and I was anxious to use them.  I love them!  I used five different rolls on this page!  The papers are also My Mind's Eye.  They are from the Follow Your Heart collection, which I also love!  I love the "listen to your soul" on the background paper!  I decided to journal right next to the washi tapes.  I like the way that turned out!  I added some Primas with Basic Grey brad centers.  I really love Basic Grey brads.  And for good measure, I decided to add my age to the page.  Hey, that rhymed!  Age to the page!  LOL!!  Age is just a number, so bring it on!  As a final touch, I add my favorite technique to my layout . . . sewing!  I love to sew on my layouts!

As always, thank for stopping by!

Why We ♥ Arizona

I scrapbooked another page on Mother's Day!  I recently won Echo Park's Hello Summer collection from The Scrap Review.  I really love the colors, especially on the backsides of the papers, so I just had to create a layout right away!  I had a bunch of collage prints from Arizona, so I put this page together.  I hand cut some banner pieces and some journaling strips.  I just think this page is so FUN!  I love how it turned out!

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!  As always, thanks for stopping by!

FIVE layouts in one day!

I have some MAJOR crafting mojo going on Saturday!  It was raining and gloomy, so I stayed in my jammies and got my SCRAP on!  I completed FIVE layouts!  I had so much fun!  Here they are!

First, I worked on a challenge to mix collections from the same manufacturer.  This is about five or six collections from Fancy Pants!  I love this photo of Jessica!  She posed by the mascot of the high school on the day of her 8th grade graduation.  So FUNNY!

Next, this is gorgeous Emily all dressed up for one of her high school dances last year.  I let her choose the papers I used on her layout, and she chose My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart.  Excellent choice!  I love the way this turned out!  She beautiful!

This layout is based on an old Sketchy Thursdays sketch.  I did some masking and misting!  This is all Basic Grey Lauderdale.  I love Arizona!  :)

This one is my favorite!  This is all Echo Park's Note To Self!  This is not a Christmas collection, but I created a Christmas layout!  I love the way this layout turned out!  I love my girls so much!  ♥

Last, I created a layout with pics from my last birthday.  The girls made me a delicious funfetti cake, decorated it, and sang to me!  We ate the cake after we got home from seeing The Hunger Games!  I really enjoyed my 46th birthday!  This is all My Mind's Eye Funday!  I love this kraft collection!

So, that's it!  FIVE layouts!  What FUN!!  I was very inspired yesterday!  I love when that happens!  I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day!  As always, thanks for stopping by!  :)
