I'm Getting There

Finally - #30. I am hoping I can get a couple more layouts in tomorrow as I got my new Swirlydoos kit today. Yipee!!

Anyway, here is a layout that I feel just needs a little bit more, but I am unsure of what. I love the Dusty Attic frame, but the whole thing feels a little 'off' to me. Maybe I'll come up with something, maybe I won't.

Any suggestions?

Here's Another

Really working on this goal...

I am so into orange lately - have no idea why. I also really love those butterflies that Lisa over at Swirlydoos turned me on to.

Catching Up

I am so far behind in my goal for this year. Truthfully, I am about 18 layouts behind - ack!! I am really determined to reach this goal so I am forcing myself to get into my scraproom. Here are my two latest:

I am so in love with the Road Show collection from Fancy Pants! This one is Moe and I at the Riverwalk last October. It was a wonderful, much needed, day out!

On that day, we also went to Mission San Jose. Here are a couple of the photos from that visit.

Man, that place was just beautiful and there was a young, Mexican girl there that was getting married. I so badly wanted to take her photo because it was like stepping back in time seeing a dark skinned girl with this gorgeous white gown with the mission as her backdrop. I wonder if my daughter might get married there? Hmmm...

Anyway, this layout was once again created using the Swirlydoos kit "Antebellum Beauty". I have created 5 or 6 layouts with this kit and I have NEVER done that before! Krissy really rocked this one if you ask me (not that she doesn't always, lol).

A Scrappy Day

I finally got motivated to go into my scraproom today. The first layout I did was of Kevin and Moe at The Tower of the Americas in San Antonio:

The second one I did was of Kevin and Levi hugging when Levi visited us in Florida last summer. I sure miss that little guy!

Anyway, it is made using the Swirlydoos kit from June - Antebellum Beauty. If you haven't figured it out yet - I REALLY loved that kit, lol!!

This layout is also based on a sketch by Beggahuna and you can see it here:

A Day at the Tea Garden:

By far, the tea gardens are my most favorite place to take photos! I have hundreds and hundreds of them from there and can't wait to keep going back to take more.

Anyway, here is another layout I made last night of our day spent at the gardens last week:

I used the Fancy Pants 'Road Show' papers and tons of Prima flowers!

The layout I did called "Siblings" was named Layout of the Week at Swirlydoos this week and the very same layout won the Memorial Day Layout Contest over at Scrap Play! How exciting is that, huh?

Scrapped Again Last Night

It was a rough night last night being the 2nd anniversary of Kevin being wounded, so I retreated to my scraproom and got a few things done.

The first layout is designed using the Swirlydoos kit again. I so loved this kit! It also follows the sketch that Beggahuna puts out for them each month. It is Kevin and I at the tea gardens last November.

This one is Moe and I at Vegas a few years back. I had a blast playing with paint and glimmer mists on this one. It's simple, but I still like it.

And this is a journal I have started. Since I am becoming a grandmother, I have decided to create an art journal full of tips and ideas for my daughter to help her raise her children. This is the first project I have ever sewed and I have Donna Downey to thank! She is one of my inspiration gurus, lol.

This last is the first page of my journal. It sucks. I wasn't going to put it on here, but I am hoping that, through time, I get better and it becomes obvious, lol.
