All Boy!!!!

Awesome....another debut at SRM Stickers!!!! Today it's all about the boys. As I write this, the song from Footloose, "Let's hear it for the Boy....." is dancing around in my head!!!! As a mom of two boys, I am always looking for creative ways to scrap them especially now that I have two boys in their teens. You can't be too cutsey or they will have a fit!!! Oh boy, my southern slang is spilling out into my writing....bare with me please!!!!! Anyhoooo, I had this idea to play around with the whole outdoors theme and guess what....SRM Stickers has what????? Yes, they have stickers for outdoors events too. Let me show you what I mean....

Just look at how you can incooperate the stickers into your title....AMAZING!!!! I was super duper pleased with how this layout came together. And the cute zoo animals....the are from Sassafrass Lass....Perfect for this particular page that I was creating. So what have you learned today????
1. Scrap those Boys
2. Make them fun and not too CUTE

A Touch of Spring

Today, I am being featured over at the SRM Stickers Blog. We are definitely having "Spring Fever". I immediately thought of this fabulous picture of my niece and couldn't help but be inspired by her lovely dress and the beautiful fountain that seemed to have caught her attention last spring. Here is what I came up with....

Now, does that not just scream "SPRING"??!!!

I hope you enjoy this day as I will be heading off to Dallas for my up and coming back surgery. Thanks to technology, I am able to schedule all my blog posts while I am away and unable to be near a computer. So, please say a prayer for me...I am having a fusion on the L-4 L-5 and L-5 S-1 on March 17th. I should only be out a few days and then my husband will bring me back home to Houston to recooperate. Much love to all of you and as always I hope you have a happy scrappy day!!!!!

Cards and SRM Stickers

Just a quick shout out to share a few cards and SRM Stickers. I love that I can find just the right sentiment with SRM when making my cards. But, when you can't find the perfect gift for your next birthday party, consider SRM's tubes. Fill it with money (what kid would not like that) and add SRM Stickers....Voila....a fabulous gift and sweet sentiment!!!!!

And next time you want to let someone know that you are thinking about them....again, grab your SRM Stickers.

I hope all of you have a lovely day!!!!
Happy Scrappin'!!!!!

I made it!!!!!!

I am so very excited to announce that I have made the Design Team for Sketchabilities. I have always loved working with sketches. It certainly helps when your mojo is running on empty. I hope you will drop by and take a peek and also congratulate my other fellow DT gals!

I also thought I would drop off a couple of new layouts I've been working on last week. Every once in a while I like to make a super "Girly" layout. This is made with one of the precious lines by Fancy Pants. I actually have been sitting on some of these papers for some time now and found my inspiration when I came across this sweet picture of Abigail. We had gone out on a mother/daughter date and I had her do a little mini photo shoot for me.

This layout is about my Grandpa. I love it when I get to go back to my hometown and see him. He always has tons of stories to tell and he loves to go out for lunch at his favorite Chinese resturant. These are the things I never want to forget. The papers used here are another Fancy pants line and works perfect for guys of all ages. As you can see I am playing around with my paint splatter techniques. My favorite paints so far are Glimmer mist. I will usually spray the page first and let some paint dribble out to make the splatter effect but then I will take the top off and purposely let paint drip off of the spray nozzle. I really love this look on a page.

That's all for always, I hope you have a wonderful day!!!!

Here's what you missed....

Yay!!!!!! I am so glad to be back to the land of technology!!!! Yes people, I am back on-line!!!!! This has been such a long crazy week for me but I am starting to see lots of progression since my move and my home is starting to have that homey feel to it once again. All the aches and pains have been worth it to have peace of mind and get back to the business of LIFE!!!!

So here is what you missed....I had some reveals take place while I was gone so I wanted to catch up the past week.....

This is a layout I did for SRM Stickers...I love the way this turned out!!!!! I used the new sticker sentiments, "Life is Good".

Here is a simple card made with the 6x6 paper pack from Best Creations. They work perfect for cards such as this. More to come this week!!!!
I hope you have a wonderful and restful Sunday!!!!!
