Where's the beach?

I know corny title, but I couldn't help myself:)

This week I have been playing along with the challenges over at Memorable Seasons.  I have competed the first challenge, still working on the second and the third was issued today. The 3rd challenge was a bingo type game but the squares were colors. You had to pick the line of colors that you wanted to use. I choose the line with red, gray, aqua and navy. So I created this layout of Ethan at the beach using those colors. The boy and girl on this layout were cut with my cricut. The best part is I am still using my stamps. I have had a ball using them!
I could not get the printer to mind me today, so I had to use the same picture of Ethan on this layout.

While I was on the beach kick I created another beach layout. I cut the cute little fence with my cricut. I think I will continue this beach theme until I get all my beach pictures done!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bo Bunny butterfly album

Good morning!

Here is a sweet little Bo Bunny butterfly chipboard album that I created. I think this collection by Bo Bunny is one of my favorites. I am really drawn to brown, that seems to be the base of a lot of my layouts. This album starts with browns and has a beautiful blue mixed it.  So Pretty!

Here are pictures of the completed album.

National Scrapbook Day Challenge at Memorable Seasons

Hi there!

Over at Memorable Seasons they are having a week of fun challenges for National Scrapbook day! This week the challenge is to create a layout using at least 2 lines from the same manufacturer. Here is the layout that I created using Webster's Pages..Sping Market, Sweet as cherry Pie and Wonderfall Playtime. This our son Ethan when he was about three months old. I don't know if you can read it but the quote at the bottom reads:

No one else will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you're the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside. 

Doesn't that quote make your heart swell? Oh I love it!

Jump over to Memorable Seasons and check out the fun! Oh and they are having a wonderful sale!

Until next time,

A few pretty things for you

With Mother's Day right around the corner, I thought I would share some beautiful graphics.  The first one is my favorite. I love the look on the mother and the child's face. Love.  Please feel free to use these for your cards and or pages.

I created another layout of Hannah with the fruit paper that I got at Michael's. Oh how I wish I would have bought more!  I love it.  This layout I created some banners (a few of my favorite things), cut out some scallop circles on my Cricut, used some of my very dusty:) stamps and of course the layout would not be complete without some Prima flowers. Oh and I also have started using twine on my layouts and I love the look of it!

Oh a side note, my husband has been under a lot of stress at work lately. So I made him a sweet bouquet of goodies. I got some of his favorite candy, Baby Ruth, filled the vase with the bite size candy. Then I  used some tissue paper and a flat circle foam piece, stuffed it in the neck of the vase along with the tissue. The taped the candy bars on the sticks. Added some fun ribbon and that is pretty much it. I surprised him at work on Friday with it and he had the biggest smile on his face. Here is a picture of the candy bouquet.
