This is what I came up with:

This was a priceless moment for me because I was the first grand parent to meet Issy and also the first person to not only get a photo of her while she was awake but with an adorable smile!  I matted my photo with Perfect Layers.  I used a combo of papers from Creative Memories and Anna Griffin.  I used a Martha Stewart punch and embellishments from my stash.  My journaling is a Project Life 4X6 card that I cut down and inked.

This is what I came up with this week:



These photos are of my older grand baby girls and are so stinking cute!  The papers I used were American Crafts and Anna Griffin.  I used Perfect Layers to mat my photos and for the larger photo, I used  Anna Griffin's Foil Layers. I print and cut the butterfly with my Cricut Explore and used Thickers for my title.  The paper bow I made using the new and improved WRMK Envelope Punch board.  My journaling spot is from Anna Griffin's Totally Tags and the other embellishments and ribbon are from my stash. 

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.

Happy Birthday My Beloved Issy................................

My youngest grand daughter turns two today.  Sheesh, where does the time go?!?  She is the sweest little girl.  She is so very smart and very funny as she learns new things every day.  Here we are:




I wish she did not live so far away so I hang on every moment, photo, and phone call I can get.  I just love talking to her on the phone.  The funniest recent call was when we were using facetime and her mommy let her hold the phone and she decided she was going to run "with me".  She kept saying.........run Grandma, run.........while she was running with the phone.  I said......I am!  I am running with you......................lol!  So funny!

I made her this card for her birthday:




She loves to tell me all about all the animals when we talk so this was perfect for her because there are four animals on this card.  I added googly eyes to the lion and penguin.  This is a card from Anna Griffin's card kit, Playful Pieces.  I love that Anna now has items for small children.

Happy Birthday little Issy, Grandma loves you!!  {{hugs}} and *kisses*

Cat Days

Here is another layout featuring Oliver the cat on various days.  He is always on some type of adventure if he is not taking a cat nap.  Last night, apparently he decided I was some type of prey because he kept chasing me all over the house.  I, of course, decided to play along and ran all over the place.  What I can't figure out is what did he think he was going to do with me when he caught me...........lol?!?  

For this layout everything used is by Prima Flowers except the layered butterfly.  The butterfly is by Heidi Swapp called layered butterflies for the Minc.  I ran all three butterflies through my Minc and then layered them using foam squares under the wings near the body to make them look like they are in flight.  I didn't do a lot of embellishing on this page because I thought all the nature elements were fabulous and I didn't want to cover them all up with a lot of stuff.  The paper itself is nice and muted so it doesn't overwhelm the layout.  

I hope you enjoyed my project!  Please leave me a comment and if you have a funny pet story, please share!
