Elephant Rocks 2

Elephant Rocks

Two page layout that I did at a workshop. I had taken my grandsons to Elephant Rocks. There was lots of climbing, so many rocks! And some of them were so big! Since the workshop was CTMH, everything on the layout is from CTMH. Paper, stamps and embellishments. The title was cut with a silhouette cameo.

Sweet Fairy Dreams

The fussy cut picture of my granddaughter came from a picture of her in her lunch room at school on Halloween in 2010. Her and her sister both wanted to be fairies that year. When I looked at this picture I was wondering what kind of "fairy dreams" she could have been having, and thought I would create a scrapbook page around that.

The Best of Friends

My daughter and her best friend on my daughter's birthday. The theme that night was the "80's". They all went shopping at the local thrift store for everything they thought might add to their "80''s" outfits. I did notice that none of them teased their bangs up really tall, and I do remember all of them sporting that look back in the 80's. I used "My Minds Eye" "Stella and Rose" paper and tags. The lock was made from a Sizzix die. The stamping, including the flower came from CTMH.

Geared for Fun

This is a two page layout of my Grandkids playing at McDonalds. They were really geared for fun that day. I purchased the paper from my local scrapbook store which has since went out of business. I got a couple of the "gears" from her also, but when making the page I decided I needed more.

I cut the rest out by using my circle cutter, then cutting out the gears by hand. I am not sure the of the paper line, and have no way to check to see what it is. But I do believe they all came from the same line except for the cardstock.

You Make Me Smile

A layout using My Minds Eye, Lost and Found. The die cuts and labels are also from the Lost and Found collection. The stamp I used is CTMH, "you make me smile". Charlee had a tootsie roll pop, and was really enjoying it. I could have probably used Photoshop and gotten rid of the drool, but since that was part of the result of her enjoying it so much, I did not want to. I do believe that the letter stickers I used for Charlee's name came from Making Memories.

Say Cheese

"Say Cheese" - My grandsons, the pictures we taken with a not so good camera. When you used the flash it would sometimes white out the faces. So many pictures turned out bad back then. It was not that long before I started scrapbooking. (got me a better camera then, lol) Anyway, I thought since the pictures looked like they did that they reminded me of polaroid pictures, so I would use them as such. This is the first layout I tried doing the outlining in black. Seem to work alright. The paper I used was DCWV - The Snapshot Stack. I think it is such cute paper. By the time I got done fussy cutting bits and pieces that I wanted to use on the page it was almost done. I added buttons, thread, some ric-rack, and a little washi tape. Oh, and a couple of brads too. Hope you like my page!

Summer Dance

A scrapbook page I completed using CTMH "Dottie" paper pack. Except the little heart pins and thickers, all the embellishments  are CTMH. I fussy cut pieces from the paper, and stamped with the CTMH stamps. Even the camera is stamped, on dottie paper. The pictures are of my little granddaughters playing in the yard a couple of years ago. I just finally got around to printing them out and putting them on a page.

Smash Book

I started my first Smash Book this week. It is going to contain things on my Bucket List. I had a birthday last month - turned 58 years old. This past year I have done many new things, including starting this blog. All of it is going into my Smash Book. I love life, and all it has to offer......not that I plan on going wild or anything....but I do plan on actually doing things I have been thinking about, and not just keep thinking about them. Doing them has been so much more fun. It all started last year - with my daughter Melody's New Years Resolution. At least one of them. That was to take her Mother to see the ocean. Which she did, her and her family. Plus many more places along the way there and back. That is what got me to thinking about all the other things I had not done, and I am going to do.

Make a Wish

Make a Wish - a perfect Spring day in the park, with grandkids. My granddaughter is blowing on a dandelion and making a wish - a perfect Kodak moment. The papers I used were from "Summer Song". Glitter paper. So very girlish. Just like my granddaughter. She loves glitter.
