Sweet Boy

I'm sharing another layout of our new grand baby Liam. As soon as I saw this photo of him in his new hat I knew I had to scrap it, he's just so darn cute in the hat, lol. I used the October 2015 Swirlydoos kit "Garden Harvest" kit for this layout. The papers in this kit are from Blue Fern Studios "Autumn Anthology" collection. I really like the Blue Fern Studios papers because they are so nice and thick, which are great for distressing. I did a lot of distressing of all the papers, some fussy cutting and popping up the photos and fussy cut pieces with foam pop dots. I added bits of lace to some of the distressed bits of paper. So here's my layout, TFL and I'd love to hear your comments!

April 2016 Swirlydoos Sketch

The sketch above is the April 2016 Sketch for the Swirlydoos "Purple Haze" kit.  I didn't get the April 2016 kit from Swirlydoos but decided to play along using the March 2016 "Peggy's Bicycle" kit. I am absolutely in love with the papers from the Prima "Tales of You & Me" collection, the papers are just so beautiful!

So this is my take on the sketch with photos of our daughter and grand baby taken in February.
 Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear your comments!

Baby Liam

Well as I said yesterday, you'll be seeing lots of Liam layouts, lol. This photo was taken in February when Liam was just 2 months old. This layout was my entry to Swirlydoos February 2016 Round Robin for team 1, week 4.
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

New Grandbaby!

Nothing is more exciting than bringing a new baby into the world. Back in December, December 2nd to be exact, we welcomed our new grandbaby, Liam, into the world. He was a big baby, 9lbs 4oz and he's such a cutie! So be prepared you'll be seeing a lot of layouts of Liam!

This first layout is of our daughter and Liam when he was just a few hours old. I used the Swirlydoos January 2015 "Bejeweled" kit for this layout, the papers in this kit are just beautiful.
This next layout is of a photo taken Christmas Day, don't you just love how adorable babies are when they're sleeping! I used the Swirlydoos "Bejeweled" kit for this layout also.
Thanks for stopping by, I'd love to hear your comments.

Wow, it's already May, where did the time go to? Apparently I'm really bad at keeping my blog up to date since the last time I updated was back in January. Okay so back in January I went to Hawaii with my son and his family. We had so much fun! So I wanted to share this layout I did on all of us the day we were leaving. The one photo is of my grand daughter and grandson doing their version of the hula, lol. The other photo is of all of use in front of the limo my son hired to drive us to the airport. The kids had never been in a limo before so they were pretty excited. Anyways here is my layout, now all I have to do is get busy scrapping all of the other hundred photos I took when we were in Hawaii, lol. Thanks for stopping by!
