A Scrappy Day

I have been scrapping on and off all day and man, was it fun! Some of the layouts won't be able to be uploaded until tomorrow as it was after dark and too late to take a picture, but I have a few others from the other day.

This first one is called "Those Eyes" and this photo just begged for that title, lol. Naturally, it's my grandson:

If I am not mistaken, everything but the red Thickers are Glitz Design from my Swirlydoos kit. I did use my new Ingvold Bolme craft knife to fussy cut the birds and I can't tell you how much I love it!

This next one needs a little work, I think. I keep toying with making some changes, but probably won't because I'm just lazy, lol.

I love this picture of my daughter. She was pretty far along in her pregnancy here and she honestly just glowed. I just think the layout needs something more behind the spritzed, crinkled paper. Other than that, I do like it. I love the Prima flowers - especially those small colorful roses. I also love that deep edge punch I used.

Next we have a layout with some photos of Kevin sitting outside of the house a couple of weeks ago. I love these photos of Kevin as it shows him being casual, something we don't see often.

The blacks and the greens really called out to me in these papers. I am really trying to use up some of the thousands of dollars of products I have here and as you can see - two items on this layout are REALLY old! First we have the DREAM title which is MM from maybe 10 years ago and then we have the old Technique Tuesday circle chipboard from probably about the same time. I did use my new Prima brick wall stencil though - loved that!

Last, I have my favorite. This is our new home that has offered stability - finally! It's been very hard not having a place to land - a place where ALL of our things can be All the time.

This paper is some older Bo Bunny (I think called Flutterby) with some newer Bo Bunny Welcome Home embellishments. I've had this Dusty Attic frame for a while now and I'm so glad I got to use that too. This one is simple, but I wanted to really focus on the photo of the house. I do intend to journal on the back about how great it feels to finally BE somewhere and to finally be able to stay in one place.

So that's it for tonight. I'll be back soon with the others I did today!
