This girl really is such a delight! However, she doesn't let me take pictures of her anymore:-( and her sister's album (she still loves the camera) is filling up fast! So I found these from last summer.

I am cleaning my scrap room - this has been ongoing for a month now...and I keep finding things I forgot about and want to use...then I scrap and make a huge mess all over again. BUT slowly I am getting more organized and using up some stuff in the process:-) This page uses Lily Bee papers from the November Art Freckles Kit. I also added some CTMH rub ons and wooden buttons (I LOVE LOVE these wooden buttons).

Happy Scrapping!!

My old shirt

Happy Monday to you! Since most of my layouts I have been working on are for assignments and are cued up just waiting their turn to be revealed ..I decided to do a layout just for FUN!

This layout features my darling Sienna wearing a t'shirt that I wore when I was a kid! Love the caption on it too "Being good gets you stuff" ...so true! My mom saved several outfits that I wore and I get a kick out of seeing my kids now wear it! I was hoping to find a photo of me wearing it too...have to do some more digging in my mom's photo albums. Then I will replace the little photo with the one of me!

I used mostly gcd studios papers on this one...from the Soul Food collection (I heart this collection and can not wait to get my hands on the embellishments!!!!!)

March Kit From Art Freckles

Hello! I hope you had a fabulous weekend! Pretty low key here but I managed to get lots of scrappy projects done:-) Here are two that I did using the SOLD OUT Art Freckles kit...wanna see what you missed out on? Check the kit out HERE and be sure to be ready to pounce on next months kit:-)

The first layout is me with my sweet Sienna. I decided that I needed to get into more of my pages so my 7 year old took these pictures for me...she did pretty darn good hey? I just LOVE the Donna Downey/Prima Tags that came in this kit...I seriously almost used them all on this layout..but settled on two:-)

Next layout's pictures are from last summers on one of our camping trips. I added on the feathers to my kit (and you can still pick these up here) and I knew right away I would do a layout with birds on it:-)

Now I am off to put the kids to bed and craft some more with this fantastic kit!

Today my layouts for gcd studios went up on their blog! It seems I have had circles on the brain lately.... :-)

This past month, I was lucky enough to have been given Soul Food and Animal Crackers for girls to work on...and I simply ADORE both of these collections!!!
The first layout, "Almost Seven" is about my oldest daughter. A couple of weeks before my kids birthdays, I like to do a layout, to look back and reflect on how much they have grown! I just love the orange and pinks in this collection!
The next layout, "Sugar and Spice" uses the Animal Crackers collection. The papers are SO CUTE!! I cut out several circle from the Icon Dots sheet and pop dotted them for dimension. I also did a bit of fussy cutting on the Cube Leaf paper so that it was overlapping onto the white cardstock. I then painted with a bit of white paint onto my paper and wrote my journaling on top!

Happy March...we are that much closer to spring...yipppeee!!!
