Summer in December

So I came across this photo of my grandson from back in 2009 when we were camping with friends and I loved the expression on his face and of course I had to scrap it, lol. I was also thinking I can't wait for summer, I hate being cold, so I thought this might make me feel warmer. 

I used the Heartfelt Creations "Under the Sea" paper collection. I did some fussy cutting of some fish and a seahorse from the papers and popped them up with foam pop dots. All of the shells in the left bottom corner are all real (I live just a few blocks from the beach). The only thing that's not real is the small starfish. I was quite happy at how the layout turned out. Here's the finished layout.
I have also made a quick card, just trying to use up some scraps in my stash.
Thanks for looking and remember I love to read your comments on my projects!

Graduation Day

I'm finally getting around to doing this layout of my granddaughter's graduation ceremony this past June. I know I'm a little slow, lol. For this layout I used a sketch from "Citrus Twist Kits". Here  is the sketch:
For this layout I used the Kaisercraft "Rose Avenue" paper collection again. I remembered to save the ticket from the grad ceremony so I was able to add that to the layout. I also printed out the grad cap & diploma from my "Graduation" digital scrapbook kit that I designed and drew in my Paint Shop Pro graphics program. I sell my kits on my website Scrappers Heaven which you can find here Scrappers Heaven Digital Kits I popped the cap and diploma up with pop dots for a 3D look. Here's the finished layout using a photo of my granddaughter & I.

We Did It!

I love this photo of my son & dil taken after their "I Do's" at the wedding. I reminded me of when some one wins a race or something, hence the title I came up with, lol. I just had to scrap it. This is my take on sketch #112 by Susan Stringfellow. Here's the sketch:
 I used Kaisercraft's "Sage & Grace" paper collection for this layout. I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the right. I was quite happy at how the layout turned out, I'd love to hear your comments! TFL!

Lifting My Own

I wanted to scrap this Photo that the photographer took of the card/gift box that I made for my son's wedding. I had never made one of these before and I was quite happy with the way it turned out. I lifted my own layouts that I had done earlier for a couple of the wedding photos, "Kiss" and "Love". I used the Kaisercraft "Rose Avenue" paper collection for the layout. I used different papers from the collection and distressed them all and layered them as shown. For my flowers I used some red & white roses to imitate the roses on the gift box. Here is the finished layout.
