Enjoy Life

Just stopping by to drop off a layout I worked on this past weekend. It was a picture of me that Abigail had taken while we were in Disneyland. We had such a wonderful, momma, and Abigail!!!! It will be a trip that I will treasure for a lifetime!!!!!

I have so enjoyed working with the Crate Paper's "Random" line. It has a beautiful palette of colors and embellies. I also added some paint splatters with my OA Sprinklers. I encourage you to pull out a picture of yourself and scrap it!!!! No matter what we think of ourselves, we are someone special to the ones we love!!!!!

A Space Mission....

Morning Folks! Remember how I told you my love for OA???? Well, I have another layout to share made with the fab "space" line. And boy, do I have tons of pictures to scrap. At least I got 1 done and many many more to go. As for my layout, I had saved a sketch from Creative Scrappers on my Pinterest....

I absolutely love these papers and the vintage space theme is absolutely precious. My son, Caleb, and I were looking at these pictures and were amazed at how much he has grown just since these were taken. He had a major growth spurt over the summer. Just goes to show how wonderful it is to preserve those memories. Not much more going on right now except for reading the 2nd book in The Hunger Games series. Wishing you a fantastic day!!!!

My Mind's Eye Jan. Sketch

2 posts in one day....whoot whoot!!!!! Seriously, I wanted to share another sketch that I worked on from My Mind's Eye. Then, of all things, I miss the deadline to turn it in. Oh Pooh!!!! Anywho, I loooooove how it turned out so I thought I would share it anyway....


Love & SRM Stickers (sniff sniff)

Hey Scrappers!!! Today I wanted to share with you a layout I had done for SRM Stickers. We were required to create something using the "Love" themed stickers. As my time draws to a conclusion with the team and  with the wonderful Susan and Jenyfur, I honestly get a little teary eyed just thinking of how thankful I am to have served amongst these amazingly talented and creative ladies!!!!! I will be forever grateful to SRM Stickers for stretching my artistic abilities and challenging me to work outside of my comfort zone. If you know me, you know that I primarily love to create layouts, but now I have other creations to add to my resume' due to SRM Stickers!!!!! Here is my latest contribution....

Just in case you are curious, I used the "Happy Days" collection by Echo Park. And remember, next time you are working on a layout, consider using SRM stickers for your title, adding print to a picture, or just adding interest to your page. The skies the limit!!!! 
Have a lovely day,

Time to See the World

Hey YOU!!!! Can you believe it....posting 2 days in a row!!! Well, last night I pulled out my stash of October Afternoon papers and ohhh how I love OA!!!!! I could own every last piece and horde it foreverrrrrr!!!! Anyway, because I have a ton of pictures of Landon's graduation, I was inspired with OA's travel line and thought about how his future is a journey in itself. Thus, I created this page based on this lovely sketch....

 (if you would like to join in on a sketch challenge with this sketch, go HERE....)

I love how it turned out and I just cannot keep myself from adding those sweet little banners/flags!!!! I just love how they just complete my page.One little tid bit....I pop dotted the middle banner/flag just to add some dimension to my cluster of flags. I also used my OA Sprinklers. They have a wonderful matte finish when I am not wanting to add glitter to my page. Well folks, that is all I have for now. I think I am going to use this day to catch up on all of my shows on my dvr. Looks as if rain may be headed our way, so I am thinking Pjs, scrapping, and tv will be the perfect way to spend my day. See ya later Alligator....

Sunshine Baby

No folks, I didn't fall off a cliff. I have been spending some quality time with my hubby while he was on vacation. We didn't do anything in particular, just spent time together and with the the kids. Landon came back for a visit and stayed for 2 weeks after New Years. Now he has returned to Louisiana, looking for a job and preparing for the his state exam so that he can begin the process of hiring on as a fireman. Lucky for him, my brother is a fireman, my brother-in-law is a fireman, and my grandfather was the fire chief. I hope I am right in saying that I believe his chances are good. Abigail's birthday is creeping up on me. We have decided to have a party at this pottery studio. The company lets the kids create a plate of their own with pottery clay. The girls can decorate them and then pick them up a few days later after they have been fired and glazed. Cool Right????!!!!! Anyway, that is what I have been up too. I have a few scrappy things in the works but can't be revealed just yet. Until then, I have one I finished today. I based it on the latest sketch from Creative Scrappers. Here it is....

I have been itching to play with my Studio Calico stash, and the picture of my sweet little niece just fit nicely with all the colors and patterns in my papers. Rheagan is truly the sweetest little ray of sunshine on the planet!!!!! I do believe she was made of all kinds of sugar and spice!!!! Well that is all I have for today. Hope you have a wonderful Weekend!!!!!

Hugs xoxoxo

Now A Man...

I pulled out my Crate Paper stash the other day and put this layout together. I wanted to convey Landon's progression from boy to man. Right now, he still needs me, still trying to figure out how to make his way in this world. I love this picture of him....such a handsome young man!

Today is a typical Monday and I am not feeling myself yet....but LSU plays against Alabama tonight so my mood may shift soon!!!!!

Hugs to you all

Welcome 2012

Hi Scrappers!!!!! I have just returned from Louisiana and getting readjusted to the business of life. The kids have school tomorrow and all things return to normal. I had a wonderful vacation and completely enjoyed my time with family and friends. I even worked in a little photo shoot with all 3 of my kiddos. Here are a few of my faves....

So proud of my babies!!!! This was my Christmas present from them....I had to bribe my boys....LOL!!!!!

Here are a few layouts to share with you that I worked on prior to the Christmas/New Years Holidays......

Most all products used on these are by Bella Blvd. I threw in some of the Lily Bee "memorandum" on two of the layouts. I've been trying to scrap some of my older pictures. I can't wait to get back to my scrap desk. I have missed my creative outlet. I am in need of some scrappy therapy!!!!

Hope you have a wonderful evening!
