My Emma.....

This layout is made using the You and Me kit from CTMH. It was a special kit being offered for a short while. I did not get it the first time but my friend Glenda had an extra set and she gifted me with one. I added the daisy in the corner made using the Art philosophy Cricut Cart. I also added the chipboard "E" on her page and colored with smoothie ink.

The layout features my one and only granddaughter Emma. She loves posing for me as much as I love taking her photos. TFL!

My Patrick....

I love this photo of my grandson Patrick. We have had a family reunion every year for Easter since I was born. We started out small but now we have over 100 family members and friends participating.

Patrick was really enjoying his cupcake. Those eyes just say it all. Those little grubby fingers are so cute! The innocence of children is so amazing.

I used CTMH paper except for the cupcakes. I used some paper that I bought at Tuesday Morning. I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cart sold only thru CTMH. It has some really awesome cuts on it. The large ric-rack looking squiggly is chipboard that I bought last year in Arlington during the great American Scrapbook show.

I used my Zutter edge distresser to distress the edges. I also used dessert sand ink to ink the papers. TFL!

Who says you can't have winter in March? I saw this on the internet and I am so sorry I didn't write the blogspot down. You score your paper every two inches on a 12x12 sheet of paper then you turn 90 degrees and score again, you pick and choose where you want your doors to be. Then decorate the rest? Sorry I didn't crop the tv out in the back ground. TFL!

Mini clipboards



Here are two more mini clipboards. The top is using some really old CTMH paper and I used the AP cart for the stars. The second one I used Sonoma paper with some Michael's bling. I used desert sand ink to ink all the edges on the paper as well as the clipboards. TFL!

6x8 clip board

I found these mini clipboards at a dollar store and I can't remember if it was tree or just a buck. I used Lucy paperback and desert sand ink, cut and rolled roses, bling from Michael's, bitty sparkles, and a Tim Holtz mini clip. Really proud of this creation, I am donating it to Pam Thorn to give away at her crop since I can not attend. TFL!
