2 More

This is a LO using Rya's second kindergarten pic. Why they need 2, I don't know. I had to scrap it anyways. I took a white piece of Bazzill CS.
Stuck a Heidi Swap Mask on it. (Floral bouquet)
Sprayed Glimmer Mist on it. (Pink Ink)Then I matted the pic with some CTMH paper. I used a QK font for the title(Snowday). The jeweled brads are from Karen Foster.
(As I get looking at this, I think this was the fall pic they took...ah crap! Oh well I am not changing the title.)

For the Boys LO, I used a sketch out of PageMaps. The woven labels are from Making Memories. The paper clips are alphaclips from Paper Studio. They are fun to use. They don't give many clips, or letters. So hopefully once you use it once, you can still get more uses out of it. The PP is from "The Goods" American Crafts. I got it off of QVC. I have been trying to use those impulse buy items more often.

Online pictures make good embellies

The Halloween LO: I have been hording these themed papers and stickers from Creative Imaginations for quite awhile now. So YEAH, I am 2 years behind, but someday I will get caught up. The little coffin tag was from a swap I was in on So I didn't make it. I used it to tie in the second page a little better. For the Superman pics, I just searched on line for some pics and printed them off. I used QK to make the title (Khaki font) and pumpkins.

I used a BYOM kit from October. It was Cosmo Cricket paper and rub-ons. I printed the title off from LBT's website. Also got the CD cover off of there. I print them off on picture paper. Gives them a more professional look. IT really helps when you can't buy certain themed embellies.

Interesting Color Challenge

Here is the color challenge I did. I found it over at Mommy Scraps. It used CTMH inks/paper. Sorbet, Taffy, Garden Green, and Bamboo. I didn't have the Sorbet color the other day when I actually started the card. Thanks to Khristi doing an evening delivery, I was able to add it in where I wanted it. I used CTMH stamps Treasure Love, With Love, and SU Riot of Petals. I love that background stamp. I had to have it. It worked great with these colors too.

Parading Around

I got asked, if I would make Pebbles and Bam Bam costumes for Rya and Shane. They have Dino Days here and there is usually some sort of parade and games they do. Family Matters is the local clothing store here and my aunt wanted my kids to be in their float. My sister also, whipped up a Barney costume for Jesse. They all rode on the float. I didn't get great pics of the parade but I did get some of the kids hanging around waiting. The banner said "There is nothing prehistoric about our fashion". So the bigger kids were in new stuff and the younger ones had their prehistoric outfits. It was pretty cute.
The papers are My Mind's Eye, Signature Suite. I used my QK a lot here. The alphabets are Roxy and Zoe. I used my CTMH markers to had some depth to the dinosaurs and bones. The bones made great photo corners.

At The Park

For this LO, I used one of Becky Fleck's Pagemaps. The papers are from the June BYOM kit. They are American Crafts Amplified Line. The letters are Thickers, Jewelery Box. I used the CTMH stamp set, I believe is called Star Stuck, or something similar. The CS was just to plain without something extra.

Layouts and Post-its


I did these LO's with the May BYOM kit. It is all We R Memory Keepers. I am getting to a point with my scrapbooking, that I just want to get "kinda" caught up! These these pics were from like there first time swimming that year, and I had to scrap them. So I grabbed the pics, found a good kit to go with it and scrapped them. DONE! Oh the little journalling notes are Heide Swap. I think they are cute. I love Post-its, and these are just like them. Speaking of Post-its, I one time got a free little dispenser. I use it a lot when scrapbooking. I use them to jot down sketches or other challenges I see online. Also, I have been trying to write down what I use on a LO or card, and then stick it on the back, for when I post them on my blog. That way, I am not sitting there trying to remember where I found a sketch (to give credit) or what papers. Post-its rock!
