1 Cute Chick

Here is Kate again in her 1st Halloween costume - a cute chick! In this layout I used Pink Paislee Trellis Bayberry collection paper, Basic Grey Color Me Silly paper and tag, various chipboard letters (being scrappy here). My 3D flower was not a complete circle if you look really close, I meant to do this!!

I think this was last year when my niece decided that she wanted to drive my car to her Florida vacation. We were patiently waiting for my mother to get out of physical therapy and switched seats while my father was the passenger. She was hilarious and tried to beep the horn! In this layout I used Pink Paislee House of 3 Soiree Music paper, Quick Quotes By the Bay papers, DCWV solid paper, Pebbles Glitter Flower Brads (in the center of the round flowers) and the little flowers on the top of the paper are made with Japanese Origami paper I purchased while on vacation in Japan.

A quick card

Here is a quick card I made for a co-worker who is not doing so great at the moment and it's a guy so I didn't want to get too girly with my colors! Most of the paper is scraps that I had left over from other projects - that's being 100% scrappy!

Having a blast!!!

So this is an old picture of my niece when Grandpa gave her her first quad - Dora quad that is! I think she was maybe almost 2 in this picture and could only go straight but she had such a blast laughing and driving and ooh and laughing so much! This layout I used more scraps I had left over from previous projects.

My lovely Aunt Dorothy (Sue Ann)

My Aunt Sue Ann's birthday last summer - yes last summer and I'm just scrapping this picture now - for her next birthday this month! I thought she would love to see her face in this picture - and yes she had two cakes for her birthday!

Here is a layout that I just through together really quickly - very basic layout that I wasn't sure would turn out ok with the 'dark' photos due to the lights being off for the singing of Happy Birthday. The paper is from Bella Blvd and a stack of die cuts I purchased at Michael's this weekend, Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, bakers twine, K&Co Brads, Prima Flowers and my favorite Stickles.

The Twins...again

Here is a booklet / package I received that I just love as it only took me about 1 hour to put together for the twins. I left the 'shorter' pages without pictures for them to either journal or add their own pictures to. This is Bella Blvd's Stephanie Hunt designing for Paislees and Polka Dot Kits that I won last year. Love these kits so easy and quick to create.
