Some Best Creation LOVE...

I was going through some of my layouts and found a few Best Creation projects that needed some love. As you know, I am designing for a second term with BC and let me tell ya, that I just love their papers. If you ever have the opportunity to purchase some of their papers, I can promise that you will not be disappointed!!!! Anyway, here is one of the layouts I made using Best Creation's "Gone Camping" line...

We are not really a camping family but I can't tell you how many times we have created tents and camps indoors. The kids and I have pushed chairs together and grabbed all kinds of sheets and blankets and made some really cool forts, hide-outs, or camp sites....whatever our imaginations can dream up!!!! So, when I sifted through my pictures and found the ones of my daughter and her friend "camping out", I just knew I could have some fun with these papers!!!!! Anyway, whether you camp outside or camp indoors, this line is just precious and loads of fun!!!!!

A ScrapRoom Sneak

Good Morning all my scrappy friends!!!!! I have a quick layout to share from The ScrapRoom!!!! Each month we get to share one layout before the reveal so that the members get a peak at what will be in their kits. Let me just say that this is going to be one fabulous reveal!!!

I have so many more things I have been working on...but I can't reveal my secrets just yet! My household has been crazy busy lately...between kids school functions and sickly animals....Geesh!!!!! My poor buddy (my dog) was hospitalized yesterday with a nasty stomach bug. I am hoping I get to bring him home today.

That is all for now...Wishing all of you a very happy Scrappy day!!!!!!

Give Thanks...

I love the colors of fall. Every year when school starts, all I can think about is cool nights, football games, and the warm colors of fallen leaves. In the scrappy world, there are so many beautiful fall papers. One of the beautiful lines I have is by Imaginisce. With that said, I thought I would play along with the sketch challenge Imaginisce is holding on their blog. Here is the sketch....

And here is my layout....

I always give thanks everyday for my beautiful children....what are you thankful for?

Back to School!!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!! Over here in Texas school is back in session, thus my theme for today!!!! I was recently challenged to create a school themed project with SRM's fabulous stickers! I began to search around the house for something I could use and found these cute little mason jars and I immediately knew what I wanted to create.

Here is the sticker sheet I used for the jars.....

Next, I created a layout using various school themed stickers.

Here are some of the stickers I used for my layout...

Hope you enjoy today's projects. Keep checking back with the SRM blog...We have a "Paper of the Week" feature every Monday and you will have an opportunity to win a fabulous prize package from the manufacturer featured along with SRM Stickers.

Happy Saturday!!!!

Well, this is my last weekend before school starts. No more sleeping in late and the lovely lazy days of summer. The kids are excited to go back to school and momma has mixed feelings. The summer started off slow for me but ended with a bang. First with a 2 week trip to my hometown, then a fabulous week spent in Destin. Here are a few pics from my beach vacation....

The only thing missing from these pictures was my husband....he had to stay home and work :(

As for something scrappy, I have a layout I worked on prior to our beach trip. I finally had the opportunity to work with the Gabrielle collection from Bo Bunny. I tend to shy away from these types of papers but I really loved the finished product.

Stay tuned, because next week I will be revealing some "Back to School" projects I created for SRM Stickers. You would be surprised with what you can do with simple things you find around the house. Until then, enjoy your weekend!!!!!

Just like Mimi...

It's time for another sketch from My Mind's Eye and I am really wanting to get my hands on some of the brand new papers from MME!!!!! With that in mind, I am throwing my name in the mix along with a layout based on a fab sketch by Anam Stubbington.

Little Princess

I am so loving the Princess stickers by SRM!!!! The possibilities are endless!!! So, when I was given these fab Imaginisce princess papers by a sweet friend, I immediately grabbed my stickers and got to work.

I hope you will consider SRM stickers for your next "Princess" project!!!!

Beach Bums

Hello Again!!!! Today I wanted to share a little tutorial on a new product I fell in love with at the Houston "Creating Keepsakes" Convention. It is called Sparkly Fluff. It is Fluff with Sparkle and no heat is required. All you have to do is color in the area with a glue pen, sprinkle the area, and tap off the excess!!!! Very cool product and very fun to use!!!!!! Let me show you what I did......

 See how I filled in the middle of the sand dollar????? And what is cool about this is how it adds such a cool layer of texture...very soft and smooth with Sparkle!!!!!! And here is my layout!!!!! Love love love these papers from October Afternoon but most of all I LOVE these pictures of my sweet babies!!!!! They are my world!!!!!!

Here are some close-ups.....

One for the Road...

I wanted to share a couple more layouts before I take off for Destin, FL. I am so excited to be leaving for my annual family beach trip!!!!!
Ok, until then, here are a few things I have cooked up....
This first layout is #5 out 6 layouts I did while in Louisiana. I just love these pictures of my baby (Abigail) holding my sister's baby (Rheagan). I used a mixture of Echo Park and Crate Paper on this layout and I am completely smitten with how it turned out. I love making a girly page and this was full of all things girl!!!!

 Now, the next 3 layouts are made with my kits from The The ScrapRoom. I just love working for this kit club!!!!! Tammy gives you plenty of bang for your buck! Just look at my layouts....all of them made completely of the kit items except for the alphas, brads, or the occasional buttons. I couldn't be more thrilled with the way each of my layouts turned out!!!

I hope you all have been inspired somehow and I wish you all a wonderful "Scrappy" weekend!!!!
