First 2 from the Nov kit!

I honestly think that the November kit is my most favorite ever.  That Domestic Goddess line from 7 Dots Studio is da bomb, lol!!  The colors are just divine and the graphics are superb.

For my first layout I went very simple.  It's titled "My Son" and obviously it's of Kevin.  This is one of those 10 minute jobs and I realize it's pretty obvious, but it works for me.

This second layout is named "Moments".  I really love the colors of this paper - they are soft, yet bold and they just call to me like no other paper ever has.

For both layouts I used the new Inkadinkado Stamping Gear.  That thing is the coolest.

Anyway, this is myself with my DGS again at the Botanical Gardens.

Isn't he just the cutest thing?  The most precious little boy ever!!

Playing with Prima

I am so in love with the new Firefly collection from Prima.  When I reordered some for the store I just had to keep some for me, lol.

So I created 2 layouts so far.  The first is called "On the Bridge" and it is of my DD and my DGS.  We recently went to the Botanical Gardens in San Antonio and I took a TON of photos.  The colors are just perfect for these papers.

For this layout, I had found a wooden frame at Michael's and inked it up for that natural wood look.  As you can see, this really is a simple layout.  Frame, a couple of vines, some interspersed flowers and some lovely butterflies from the new Pink Paislee Artisan collection.  I then just used a punch in a few areas around the edges and that's it.

This next layout is of me.  I've been trying to do one layout per year of myself so I can remember what I looked like at that time.  Since I am now 47 years old (gasp - how in the heck did that happen?!!!) I thought this photo was a good one to use.  It's kinda far off enough not to really show my age, lol.

So on this one, I used my cherry blossoms stencil and some stencil paste.  I love the effect it gave and have to say it is much prettier in real life.

After I let the paste dry, I just added my photo, a couple of chipboard pieces and tons of flowers.  Can you tell I REALLY LOVE these papers?

Last Month's Kit at CM!

I got to scrap with last month's kit and with everything going on, just flat out forgot to upload the layouts anywhere!  Here they are:


This first layout is of my daughter and her family.  She wished for a family for so many years - she wanted kids for so long - and she finally found someone and made her wishes come true.

Lake Mead

The second layout is of me and my friend, Moe at Lake Mead.  I used the Prima packaging to create the background for this photo.

Sorry this post in not very talkative, lol.  I have bunches of things to get done today, but wanted to quickly post these.
