Momma's Kisses

This is the companion page for the one I just posted. One layout was photographed in the daylight and the other with a flash, so they don't look like they match, but they do.
For this layout I used Melissa Francis, Making Memories and Coordinations paper, Prima chipboard alphas and flowers, and Basic Grey sticker letters. I also doodled on this one.

Christmas 2008

This layout doesn't really have a title, but the photos were taken at Christmas 2008, so I will call it that. This was the end of the day, and the baby had had enough of presents, and refused to open one more, so her big sister opened it for her, and then her other sister happily spent some time playing with her little sisters new toy. These kids just don't seem to fight and squabble much.
I used Melissa Francis, Fancy Pants, and Making Memories and Coordinations paper. I also used a Making Memories journaling spot and some Basic Grey chipboard. I did some doodling here and there too.

I finally got some time to scrap last night. These are 2 pages from the Christmas of 2008. My little grandaughter loves bald babies, so when she opened the package with the bald baby she was so excited, and wanted it out of the box right away. Her older brother offered to help, and she sat there so patiently, waiting for it to be free. Every once in awhile she would tilt the box up to make sure the doll was still there while he untwisted all those wire twisties that were holding it in.
For this layout, I used Bo Bunny, Fancy Pants, Making Memories and Prima papers, a Fiskars punch, AC thickers and a slick writer.

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things

I am working on a mini album. It started out to be about my first home, but ended up being a book of my collections. I have always loved all things vintage including antiques, linens, colors, homes. I just love historic vacation spots too.
Anyway, this is the cover for the book I am working on. I will be using my bind it all to put it together when I am all done. I will try to post a couple of pages every day.
On this cover I used mostly all Basic Grey pheripherie and wisteria. I just love both of those lines. I also used the edge of a Making Memories die cut paper, a couple of colors of stickles, a slick writer, ink, and pop dots.

Matt and the Girls

This is my son Matt and his little girls. I never thought he would be a good daddy, but he is, and they just love him. It's funny because they call him Matt rather than Daddy, but he doesn't seem to mind.

I used the new Basic Grey Wisteria line for both of these layouts. I just love the colors, and I think this font is one of my very favorites, and I find myself hoarding sheets of it.

This is one of the squirrels that came to my bird feeder every day. He would burrow under the snow and pop his head up every once in awhile until he had worked his way over to the feeder. Then he would either eat the seeds scattered in the snow, or he would climb up to the feeder and eat there. I had a squirrel guard on the post, but he went around it, or would climb the peach tree and jump from the branches to the feeded. I just couldn't keep him out of it.

My grandaughter, like so many little girls, loves horses, and really wants one. Her parents took her to see this miniature pony when she was not quite 3 years old, and it was just her size.
I used Kaiser Craft papers. I love so many of their papers, especially their vintage looking lines. I also used My Minds Eye rub on letters, the Fiskars apron lace border punch, a digi journaling block and an AC slick writer to journal and doodle.

This past winter I decided to feed and watch the birds. The former owners had installed a really nice feeder just outside my kitchen window, and I was pleased to see the variety that came to my feeder every day. The very first photo I took was the cardinal about to land on the suet cage. I've read that cardinals don't eat suet, but he did that day. I never saw them near it again. They were, however, daily visitors to the feeder containing black sunflower seeds.

I used a Basic Grey mixed album, AC and Making Memories rub ons, SEI sticker letters, and papers from my scrap box.

It's Called Personality

Here are two that I finished late last night. This is Hailie, my closest grandchild. That is in distance, she lives 5 blocks away. I have a lot of pictures of her, so you will see her often. She loves to dress up, and always seems to have her little dog in tow. She is a real sweetheart, and has personality to spare.
For these layouts I used MME Wild Asparagus, Fancy pants, Prims and Making Memories patterned paper. I used Prima Chipboard alphas, AC thickers, and Making Memories Rub on alphas. I also used prima flowers, leaves, jewels, butterfly, and chipboard along with some Kaiser Craft jewels and a My Little Yellow Bicycle overlay frame. Oh, I also used a Martha Stewart punch, and a Maya Road chipboard swirl that I painted and glittered with Doodlebug glitter.

Sled Ride

This is one I did recently of my grandaughters first experience with the snow. She lived in Texas when this was taken.
I used Karen Foster, Basic Grey, and Making Memories patterned paper, a Fiskars border punch, Imaginesce rub ons, AC thickers, brads, and some really old die cut snowflakes that I altered.
I love snow pictures. They are so peaceful.

A Flower For You

I love this picture of my grandaughter bring me a flower.
I used Basic Grey, Sassafras Lass, and other patterned papers, Fancy Pants and Imag Project Chipboard, Paint, Doodle Bug glitter, May arts ribbon, AC thickers, signo uni-ball white gel pen, a slick writer, and a vintage button

My Girls

This is a layout of three of my grandaughters playing in the park. I used Making Memories patterned paper, black cardstock, Prima felt, Basic Grey chipboard a journal spot made with my slice, and I hand doodled. I'm not sure who makes the alpha stickers.

I just love all the chipboard accent pkgs from Basic Grey.

Mr Frosty

I generally always do 2-pg spreads. I just like that look. Anyway, this is one that I made to go with another one I did recently.

For this layout I used Scribble Scrabble and Imaginese patterned papers, KI lace paper, Fancy Pants and MME die cuts, AC thickers, Making Memories Rub on alphas, a slick writer, Tsukineko ink, and a pair of my old deco edge scissors to make the photo corners.

I also used these cool old tin snowflakes with thick vintage looking paint on them. They came from a garland I had around the house. I love using old finding, lace and other bits and pieces.

I am

I thought I would add an about me page to my new blog so you could see who "I am".

I used Crate Paper and Dream Street papers, Maya Road chipboard, prima flowers, a fiskars border punch, Tim Holtz paint dabber, Tsukineko ink and embossing powder a slick writer and a uni-b all signo white gel pen.

I painted the chipboard with the Tim Holtz butterscotch paint dauber, covered it with the clear embossing powder, heated it till it melted, and then edged it with the gel pen.

A huge thank you to Kat/Car

I just wanted to say that there are some pretty wonderful gals out there in the scrap world and Kat/Car is one of them. She was an enormous help in getting this blog up and running.
I've wanted one for some time, but wasn't sure just how to go about it, and I am so grateful for her help. Stop by her blog and leave a comment if you have time. She's my first follower.

My very first blog post Woo Hoo!

This is a card I made tonight. The dotted background is actually packaging from some of my scrapping goodies. I've had it for some time, and knew there would be a use for it. I also used a prima flower, a vintage button, October afternoon sticker letters, my fiskars threading water punch, and May arts ribbon.
