Bird Hunting

I am sure that everyone that reads my blog is getting tired of all the baby photos I have been scrapping lately..................lol!  I sure can't get enough of my youngest grand daughter who will be turning two in a week!  Yikes, where does the time go?!?  And at the end of this year, she will have a little brother or sister to join in all the scrapping fun for me.  This layout is another of my most favorite subjects, my cat Oliver.  The lighting is horrible in this portion of our family room, but these photos are great!  Here he is:





He is hunting my birds Bailey and Sunset but apparently it bores him to tears and just cracked me up!  My alpha are by The Paper Studio and "made easy" were chipboard letters that I used orange Stickles on and look so much prettier in person than in this photo.  My butterflies are EK Success and the flourish is by Recollections.  The flowers and butterfly center are from my stash and the journaling is a Project Life card.  I am working on a Project Life book for my son and I have so many of these cards that I am now using them in my scrapbooking to use them as much as I can.  My photos were matted using Perfect Layers.

I hope you enjoyed my layout and got a chuckle over my silly cat, Oliver!

Treasure Every Moment


I am really enjoying scrapbooking my youngest grand daughter.  I thought I would never get there as I am so behind scrapping my photos.  I keep taking pictures, but actually doing the scrapbooking is a lot more slow going.  Here is one I got done:


Here little Issy is just days old and already the dog is loving on her.  Aren't these photos so sweet?  A used paper by American Crafts and Anna Griffin.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to add some fun to my border.  My embellishments are a mix of Anna Griffin, Kaisercraft, Petaloo, Creative Memories, and Project Life.  I used Perfect Layers for my matting.

I hope you enjoyed my layout!

 And here is what I came up with:

I did this layout out in black and white.  I really don't know why I don't do more of these because they are just so stunning to look at.  The secret to a great black and white layout is to add a "pop" of color and red is the most dramatic.  I picked pink to make it more matchy, matchy to the photo of my grand daughter and me.  I matted my photo four times using Perfect Layers.  My papers used are DCWV, American Crafts, Anna Griffin, and Me and My Big Ideas.  The ribbon, flowers, buttons, flourish, and title are all stuff from my stash.  And the journaling was done on a Project Life card with an American Crafts white chalk pen.  
I hope you enjoyed my layout!  Please leave me a comment and don't forget to enter your layout using this sketch over at the ScrapMuch? blog.

ScrapMuch? Sketch-y Friday Time! July 10, 2015

Happy Friday everyone!  It is Sketch-y Friday over at ScrapMuch? and I hope you will play along with us this week.  You can play along using a new sketch that will be posted every Friday and enter your layout over at the ScrapMuch? blog for a chance to win a prize.  A winner will be selected at the end of the month!  All the rules and how to link up your layout(s) are posted on the the ScrapMuch? blog.   Here is this weeks sketch from Laura:





And here is my take on this sketch:


This was soon after Isabeau was born and still in the hospital with mom (my daughter).  It is amazing all the photos they now take after the baby is born.  When I was having children it was one and done!  I wish they had done this when my babies were born.  

The papers are Prima Flowers and Recollections.  I cut the purple bracket with my Cricut Explore.  The flowers and ribbon are Prima Flowers and the butterflies are buttons I found in my stash.  The sentiment is Creative Memories.  I didn't journal on this page because it is actually on the other page that this one goes with.

I hope you enjoyed my layout!  Please leave me a comment and don't forget to enter your layout using this sketch over at the ScrapMuch? blog.

Going Home...........................

I know so many crafters out there are like me.  We buy, buy, buy, buy!  We buy because it is so stinkin' cute.  We buy because it is an awesome sale.  We buy because darn it, we just like it and want it...............................lol!  My craft room is truly full to the brim and if I want to be honest with myself, I really will not need anything for years and could create during many lifetimes without buying a darn thing.  I know you probably thought that's not true, I will need adhesive!  And you would be correct except I also have adhesive coming out of my wazoo and could probably go for a couple of years without buying that either if I used what I have on hand.  So what am I leading too?  Funny thing, I am not going to tell you to stop buying stuff and I am sure not going to stop buying stuff.....................lol!  What this is leading to is last weekend I was looking for something totally not craft related and I came across a cute craft kit I bought years ago in an unrelated place and so not in a place it should have been in.  Surly it must have been on sale, or something, I think!  When I found it my first thought was, oh my how adorable!  My second thought was, I had no clue I had this!  A little scarey, however I am a paper junky and a craft addict.  I need a 12 step craft program, however you would have to drag me pushing and screaming to one unless of course that program would enable me into my next purchase(s).  What is even more hilarious is that I don't even know who this company is!  As a former crafting supply store owner, I am pretty in tune with all there is out on the market and I can tell you what is from which company just by sight.  This kit I found is from Amscan, Inc. and called Baby Safari.  This is the layout I created with my new found kit:





This would so be grand daughter approved, because she loves saying her animals and tells me them every time we talk.  Today we talked about fishies and flamingos.  So are you like me?  I know you are......................lol!  Leave me a comment and tell me your funny found treasures and stories!
