These pictures of Kevin when he was small always hurt my heart! Mah bebe! That face!

I don't even remember what paper line this is. lol  I threw this together pretty quickly. Pretty straightforward!

I found these pictures and instantly knew I had to cut out a clam somehow. I was amazed to find just what I needed on the Cricut cartridge Disney Princesses. Who'd a thunk it. lol  Take your cuts to a new, cuter level, by adding googly eyes!

Kevin cracked me up by trying -and liking- clams at the chinese buffet place. It was just a phase, he's since stopped eating them after a few years of liking them. :)

I had this scrap, the yellow striped paper, which I had cut out a shape for a background, and I was going to toss it or give it to a friend who likes using up scraps.  But then I had an idea to use it, but I couldn't find a photo(s) to go with it.  So I made the layout anyway. Eventually I'll have a picture that will work. :)

The little hexagons were left over from cutting some beehive backgrounds, and I'd saved them just in case. I also had a strip of printed paper with little circles that I cut out to make the flower. Everything on the page is stash stuff, leftovers.  The sun in the center of the circle flower was one of those canvas covered chip stickers from Studio Calico, painted with Distress paint.

Sometimes I get the urge to make a page design but don't have the photos for it, so I just make the page anyway. I always get the photos eventually. ;)

I Moustache You a Question


Yeah, I know, the title is over-used and and cliche. But I couldn't think of any thing else at the time. lol

I think the papers may be Basic Grey, but I don't remember. I just remember that they were very old stash and I wanted to use them up.

My friends and I had gone to a little product party (Grace Adele? a sub company of Scentsy) and the consultant had made these mustache sticks so naturally we had to take pictures. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Katie's Birthday


Here's some more old papers! I forgot to check what manufacturer these were but I'm guessing Basic Grey perhaps. :)  Totally old stash.  I also had a strip of velvet border trim that's been in my stash forever. I was very glad to use up stash stuff.

A few friends and I surprised our friend Katie with a little birthday celebration at her work.  Super fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pride Day


Well here's another layout from the Bo Bunny collection from my stash. I also found these acrylic embellishments printed with paisleys and the word "dream". I think they might be from an old Prima collection that I'd used up but hadn't used these embellishments. Their colors went perfectly with the papers so I had to use them. I think the colors of the papers went really well with the belly dancer's costumes.

Hi hi,

So, once I was finally back in the mood to think up pages, I pulled out an old collection of Bo Bunny papers. I bought them a LONG time ago! and I forgot to look at the name of the collection on the manufacturer strip. Loved the colors. :) I still have a lot of it left, since many of the papers I bought 2 of each.

When I was getting ready to write up this post, I realized I've forgotten to add the title. LOL  so now  I have to remember to put the title on before I stick it in an album. 

My friends and I were celebrating a new baby, he's a cutie. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

My Boy

Hi there,

So I was at the Lorado crop, the last day of a 3 day crop. In fact, it was very nearly over, I had maybe a little over an hour to scrap before I needed to pack up. I really wanted to get one more page done if I could. So this is what I came up with!  I used the Echo Park All About A Boy collection, and pretty much just used things as they were.  I had this one-off picture that I'd printed as a 5x7.

I also had those chevron strips left over from the Balloons layout. I saved them all, and thought they looked kind of neat on this page.

Thanks for stopping by!

I really really love these papers from the Bo Bunny Winter Woodland collection. The colors were perfect for these pictures. I'm glad I bought the chipboard sticker sheet as well, I used as many as I could. :)

Kevin loves sledding! Here, his uncles and step cousin are out sledding. I'm thankful my brother took these pictures!

Bald Eagle Days


I have been trying for the last few years to use up my stash. But now and then I go into the scrapbook store and I see a collection that's new to me, and I am in love. I found this winter collection from Bo Bunny (I {heart} Bo Bunny!), the Woodland Winter collection.  I did not buy the whole collection, I managed to restrain myself! But I did buy enough for a few layouts. :)  I love the colors, the blues and browns.

Bald Eagle Days happen in January here. The Bald Eagles migrate here from Canada and stay for the winter, because they can fish the Mississippi river. So there's a big expo where we can see rehabilitating birds of prey, the kids can do activities and local organizations can show what they have. We try to go every year, it's fun. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Love these Echo Park papers, from the All About A Boy collection. I saw the balloon sticker and decided to dig out these old pictures from the 80s, when I went to a balloon launch. One of the few times I took a lot of pictures back then! lol

The other balloon is cut from my cricut, but I don't remember what cartridge it's from. Found it on my gypsy when I did a search. :)

Anyway, the zig zag patterned paper was perfect for the pictures, since so many of the balloons had that pattern on them. I also cut the background on my cricut, I think with the new Edge to Edge cartridge.

Going to try to find a balloon launch this year so the kiddo can see them. :)
