I did this layout a couple weeks ago. I guess I had forgotten to post it. I loved this picture of Kevin and it was in the pile that i was 'saving'. Saving for what, I have no idea, but I think it looks great with these Jenni Bowlin papers. I used a piece if cardboard for a bit of texture, and painted it with Tim Holtz crackle pain in Walnut Stain. Thanks for looking and have a fantastic day!

Scrapping out Loud

I made this first layout for the challenge over at Scrapping out Loud. The challenge was to use a rub on directly on your photograph. It's a technique that I've loved to do for a long time. I just love what it adds to the photograph. And "Who is that adorable child?", you may ask? Why. me of course! This is a layout of my childhood trip to Germany to visit my maternal grandparents. This layout I made for Vintage Plum last week. The paper for both of these layout is Prima's Nursery Tales. I really adore the paper, but find it really hard to work with. You know when you get in that magical zone when the layouts just make themselves practically? Well, this paper doesn't do it for me. I think I just really love dramatic contrasts and this is just more ...not contrasting. LOL Thanks so much for looking! Have a super sweet day!

These Beautiful Days

Here is a layout I made for the Paper Posies crop. I saw a beautiful layout while I was blog hopping and I forgot where it was, but I followed the sketch of her layout. The beautiful lolipop flowers were made by Pauline. The paper I used is by Prima, and the trim was from the craft store. I made the flourishes with black stickles. The letter stickers are Rebecca Sower, I believe. ***ETA I refound the bolg I scraplifted from! it's simplyabundant.typepad.com. Her layouts are beyond amazing and worth a look, for sure!***

Some cards I made this weekend

Paper Posies had their anniversery crop this weekend. I love crops because with the variety of challenges and short deadlines I make a lot of things in a short period of time. It's always nice to have extra cards around, just in case you need one. I hate making cards at the last minute. Thanks for looking and have a super sweet day!
