Zoo Boo

I have been scrapping up a storm, after that dry spell when I had the flu. I missed it, and am having so much fun.

This is me and my youngest daughter riding the carousel at Zoo Boo. I am not the photogenic one in the family, that's for sure, but oh well. I love carousels and the music that goes with them.

First Ribbon

This was the first ribbon Hailie won, ever, for showing horses, and although she was trying to be brave, she wanted to cry. Being the girly girl that she is, she wanted the pink one. She could have cared less about 1st, 2nd, etc. She wanted pink.
After the color coding was explained, she was fine, but she would still have preferred all pink ribbons.
Products used:
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey, Karen Foster
Stickers: Basic Grey, Carolees Creations
Alphabet: AC Thickers

Meet Lovey

Hailie is introducing Aunt Misty to Lovey, the horse she rides. She was quite smitten with this horse. Partly because he was a love and partly because it was the horse she learned to ride on.
Products used:
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey, Bo Bunny, Karen Foster
Lace Paper: Basic Grey
Stickers: Basic Grey

She is so small, and the horse is so big. I prefer things with brakes, but like most girls, she and her mom just love horses. It was pretty amazing to watch her put the horse thru his paces with very little effort.
Materials used:
Patterned paper: My Minds Eye and Pink Paislee.
Lace paper: Basic Grey.
Stickers: Basic Grey.
Flowers: Prima.
Pins: Maya Road.
Alphabet: AC thickers.
Pen: Uniball signo.

Getting Ready

I finally got some free time to scrap. These are of my grandaughters first horse show. It was more for fun, so they could get the hang of it, so it wasn't full dress. She is such an animal lover, just like her mom, who won her share of ribbons and trophys. Personally, I'm afraid of them. I prefer things that have brakes.
Materials used are:
Patterned paper: My Minds Eye and Pink Paislee.
Stickers: Basic Grey.
Felt butterflys: Petaloo. These are to die for. I just love them.
Alpha: AC thickers - love that font.
Flowers: Petaloo and Prima.

Tea Party & Tiny Diva

A couple more dress up layouts of my grandaughter. I asked her what her favorite colors were, and her answer was "pink, purple, and sparkles" She is a glitter girl.

Dress Up

This is a layout that I did awhile ago of my grandaughter playing dress up. That seemed to be her favorite pastime up until recently when horses became her passion.
I do believe she could have rivaled Amelda Marcos for shoe collections. I remember when they were packing to move (she was 2 at the time). She got her suitcase, dragged it into her room, loaded up all her shoes, and announced that she was ready to go.
Although she doesn't dress up anymore, she still love shoes and purses. Oh, and bling. Notice the crown.

Little Calf, Little Girl

This is another layout that I did a bit ago, but thought I would share. The photos were taken about 7 years ago when my eldest grandaughter was home from Texas for a visit. She was quite taken with this little calf.
I used Basic Grey papers and alpha stickers

First Quilt

These are two pages I did awhile ago. I was the only quilter in my family for many years. My baby sister took up the hobby a couple of years ago, and this past year I taught my grandaughter some of the basics. This was her first attempt. She didn't want to wait till I brought a hoop, so she just worked on the top of the table and made a quilt for her dolls. It was neat to see her work diligently on that quilt. The stitches were long and uneven, but so were my first ones. I believe I was 12 when I made my first quilt. She is 9.
I used Imagination Project grid paper and I believe the patterned paper is Cherry Arte. I also used Doodlebug trims, a Fiskars punch, and Prima chipboard alphas.

Looking for Cats

Three of my grandchildren out in my sister's garage looking for her elusive cats. They all love animals, but the cats like privacy. The cats were much better hiders than the kids were finders. But they had fun trying.
I used Basic Grey papers, Melissa Francis stickers, May Arts ribbon, a Making Memories journal spot, Doodlebug brads, an American Crafts slick writer and Tsukineko ink. Oh I also used a Crafters Workshop template. I love those things.

2nd Cousins

This is my niece and my second youngest grandaughter. I'm so glad we have a close family where everyone knows everyone, and we all live close enough to visit often and gather for all the holidays.
In this layout I used Bo Bunny paper and chipboard, Making Memories clip and journal spot, Inkadinkado stamps, Creative Imaginations alphas and lots of stickles. I just love stickles.
