Dream Big


I have completed another layout. I found an old My Mind's Eye paper pack and  it is huge!  So I have been slowly going through the pack and creating some layouts. This layout that I am sharing today is of my Son (middle picture), grandson and granddaughter. This past Winter my husband and I took them to the park to play and they had a blast!  These are some of my favorite shots that we got that day.

The flower is handmade by me:)  I took some ribbon, lace and burlap and stacked them one on top of the other and tied a little string around it and then fanned out the ribbon. Pretty simple and I love the look that you get. I am going to play around with this some more and see what else I can come up with.

I also wanted to share with you what my layout looked like before I placed the pictures on it.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

My Heart

Good morning!

I just finished another layout of Hannah. My husband took this picture of Hannah and I without me knowing. I don't usually let him take pictures of me. I am so glad that he snapped this one I am just in love with it!  The look on Hannah's face is simply beautiful. She is a sweet and magical little girl:)

I did a lot of distressing on this layout.  I added some burlap at the last minute and I am so glad I did. I love the look that it gives to the layout. I also added some gesso here and there, I just love using this stuff.
I added a little Melissa Frances frame around the my heart sticker. Some torn books pages finishes the shabby look that  I wanted.

That is about all for now

Have a blessed day:)

Grandma's Girl

Good morning!

I forgot to blog about this sweet little album!  I used a Bo Bunny binder album to create this beauty.  The paper is Authentique Uncommon collection. I love this paper!  So pretty and soft.  I also used a sweet little bench by Prima. I love using sweet little trinkets through out my albums. The little dress form was such fun to create. I took some lace and layered it and added some sweet little flowers.

That is all I have for now!
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day:)

Spooky Halloween Album

Hi there!

I have just finished my first Halloween project of the season. I found this wonderful Pink Paislee phantom collection and I am so glad that I grabbed it!  I love working with black, for me that is a staple in my craft room. This collection is lime green and black, fun Halloween colors. Did a lot of distressing on this album (one of my favorite things)  and some stamping on a few of the pages. I also added the sweetest little treat bag for journaling or some extra little spooky treasures. I also used my Martha Stewart spider punch on the top of the bag. So cute!  One thing about my albums that I like to do is leave a lot of room for pictures:)

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!!

Where did the Summer go?

I can't believe that Summer is almost gone. I have been busy spending time with my sweet son, playing in my scrapbook room and enjoying the lazy days of Summer.

I have the honor of creating a baby girl album for one of my best customers on Etsy. She was blessed with a sweet granddaughter and she wanted me to make a album for her. I had so much fun creating this album. She wanted a frame for the front of the album to place a picture of her grandbaby.  Here a some pictures of the album...

 This is the back of the album.

Front of the album.

I also created another layout of my sweet Hannah. She is three now and full of fire:)  I finally went out and bought some Gesso. I have been seeing so many beautiful layouts, cards and home dec. projects using this so I got some. I LOVE IT!!!  First time I used it I was a little scared not sure what to expect. You really can't make a mistake using this wonderful product. The things that I wasn't expecting was how fast it dries. I really like that.  If you are on the fence about it, do it, you won't be sorry.  Oh and I got mine at Michael's, it is Martha Stewart and I used a 40% coupon and I think it costs 3.00 dollars.

That is about all for today~ Thank you for stopping by:)
