"Fun" Layout

I've had this photo of my grandson and I in my box of photos to scrap for  quite sometime so I finally got around to doing just that the other night. My grandson & I were entertaining ourselves in the Halloween aisle at the $ Store, lol. I used the Making Memories SimplyFab Multi Pack "Meg" paper collection, which I have also had in my stash forever. I distressed all the papers on the layout. The flower's are from Prima. The butterflies I printed out on photo paper and fussy cut them out then added the wire antennas I made. Here's the finished layout...

Two More Mini's

I think I'm getting addicted to doing Mini Albums, they're a lot of fun. This first one is made using a tutorial from You Tube by Scrapqueen which you can find here: Scrap Queen. This book is a 4" x 6", for my album I used the Heartfelt "Under the Sea" paper collection. I really like these papers for this mini album, they just seem to be "happy" papers to scrap a fun time with family and/or friends at the beach! Here's the first mini...

This next mini album I found in my stash, it came with the chipboard front cover and back cover and then just card stock pages and is 5" x 5". I used Couture Creations "Sea Breeze" paper collection for this mini. I'm quite happy with how it turned out. Here's the finished product...
Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear your comments!

New Mini Album

Just a quick post to show off my most recent mini album. This can be an insert for a bigger mini album or just as a small mini album to pop in to your purse or whatever as a "Brag Book". I made this from a tutorial by PaperDream Design on You Tube which you can find here: PaperDream Design Mini Album

 I used the "Rose Quartz" paper collection from Prima, this is such a pretty paper line! I hope to do a video of the whole album this week and will post it here on my blog. You can click on the photo to see a larger picture. TFL!

Precious Girl

I had this photo of my daughter and I in a frame in my living room and decided I should scrap it. Where did the time go, my daughter's only 5 in this photo, she's now 26!  I'm feeling old, lol.

I used the Kaisercraft "Rose Avenue" paper collection for this layout. I used a bit of multi medium with one of my stencils on this along with using some Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst spray. I used a piece of pink cardstock for my background paper which then allowed me to use the different left over paper pieces from other layouts I'd done using this paper collection. I cut and layered the different pieces until I was happy with the design. I then distressed and inked all of the papers and glued them down. I backed the photo with some blue cardstock from my stash and added some cardboard to the back of the photo to lift it up from the other papers. I die cut some leaf flourish's and added them to the layout and then added all my flowers. I found some metal tags in my stash, one that said "Precious" and one that said "Girl" and a metal heart and added them to the layout. I was quite pleased at how my layout turned out. Here's the finished layout...
 I'd love to hear any comments you may have on this layout. Thanks for stopping by!
