bo bunny gabrielle collection

Happy Halloween!

We are all so excited that it is Halloween. My sweet son was making spooky ghosts sounds this morning, he was so cute!  This year he wanted to dress up in a scary costume,  I said ok but nothing with blood and no Zombie! So he picked Ghost Face from Scream. Can't wait to get pictures!

On the scrapbooking front I have been working on the challenges over at Memorable Seasons. I finished another one yesterday. I am putting together a scrapbook of the woman in my family. Kind of a generations type album.  I am using the Gabrielle collection from bo bunny.  I have completed the cover of the album and two pages, one of me and one of my mom.  The challenge for this page was to use banners. I used my new Martha punch on this and some liquid  pearls to make the swirls.

Thanks for stopping by and have a safe and fun Halloween!


P.S. I would love to hear from you if you visit my blog. Would like to know if I get any visitors:)

Bo Bunny


Over at Memorable Seasons they are having some great challenges. I spent the afternoon yesterday completing one of those challenges. I am so glad that  I did!  The challenge was to use one shape over over in your layout.

So I pulled out my Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection and went to town!  I did a lot of distressing, inking and water distressing. I used some old book pages that I misted with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Suede. I hand cut all of the butterflies and placed them on my layout so that they look like they are flying. I must have placed and replaced those butterflies 100 times!

Thanks for stopping by!

Prima Sweet Fairy

Good morning!

Here is a layout that I created out of some left over Prima Sweet Fairy papers. I really like this line, so easy to work with:)

This is a layout of my granddaughter Hannah. I have used this picture many times as it is my favorite!  The little banner at the bottom of the layout was created with my new Pretty Pennants Cricut Cartridge. I really like using this cartridge and there are so many different style banners.  I also used a quote from the Tinkerbell..All you need is Fath, Trust and a little Pixie Dust! Oh and did you see the sweet little fairy charm? So Sweet :}

Thanks for stopping by!

Have a blessed day

Beautiful Dresses

Good morning!

I don't have anything to share on the scrapbooking front, but I found these dresses on Pintrest and thought they were stunning!

If I could I would dress like this everyday:)

Have a beautiful day!

Good morning!

This morning I am in my scrapbook room working on some layouts, hoping to get rid of this headache that I have. I have been dealing with sinus stuff and usually my sinus headache will turn into a migraine. Not fun!

 This layout is of Hannah of course. I had some left over paper so I thought I would create a layout with it. I used my new Martha Stewart punch in each corner, did some distressing and inking. I used my favorite quote in the bottom left corner and it reads... Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. I have a picture of that quote hanging in my living room where I can see it everyday. Love it!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Purple Love

Good morning!

Ok first let me say that purple is one of my least favorite colors. Don't know why...

Now let me say that last week my handsome husband was wearing a soft purple shirt and gray pants. He looked so handsome! For some reason I knew I wanted to scrap that color combo:)

Fast forward to me going to Michael's and finding the perfect paper, flowers and other yummy goodies!

As soon as I got home I started putting together a layout. I have always wanted my layouts to have a bit of whimsy to them. Sometimes I think I achieve it, sometimes I don't. I tried really hard to make this layout whimsical. I think I did..kind of:)

The pictures are of Hannah my sweet granddaughter. These were taken about a year ago when we spent the day together.

I was browsing through my graphics and thought I would share these spooky ones with you. Please enjoy!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day:)

Happy Saturday!

Thought I would share another layout that I finished. Don't know about you, but I seem to go through scrapbook get the idea. Now I am in a layout mood:)

I found this big beautiful burlap flower at Michael's and bought 3 of them.  I knew I wanted it to be the focal point of a layout. So I found these papers that I have had for awhile and knew this was where my flower should be!  I also got out my Martha Stewart Doily punch and punched about 8-9 strips, cut them up and placed them around the border. I wish now that I had scrunched and inked them, but maybe next time:)
I also added some Gesso around the border and a little on the big flower.

That is all for today!

Thanks for stopping by:)

Authentique Uncommon

Good afternoon!

I have been on a roll with the layouts!  I started this layout with the thought that it would go in my Etsy store. But the more I look at it the more I want to keep it!  Hannah looks so sweet mixed in those flowers:)  This layout was create with the very last bit of my Authentique Uncommon papers. I SOOO need to get some more because these papers are the best to work with.  This color combo is my all time favorite..Pink and Gray.

The gray flowers are Jolee's Boutique that I picked up at Michael's. The big Pink flower I picked up at Wal-Mart in the ribbon section. I think they are meant for headbands:)  I also used my Martha Stewart punch and lots of dollies.

Thanks for stopping by!
