Flip Flop

I think this layout is pretty unusual for me. That picture of my daughter - with her tongue sticking out - is not. She does it all the time and it generally appears in a layout. I think she is just starting to learn though!

Moments in Time

It's TUESDAY! I know you probably don't need this announcement, but it is. LOL Anyway, if you're an SBG fan - you probably know we have chats every Tuesday night at 9pm EST. So come on over and join us!

This was the result of a challenge from a few weeks ago. I honestly don't have all the credits, but I can tell you there's a lot of Studio Maya and Studio Gypsy. I little bit from Soval & mgl Scraps.

Thanks for peeking in!

Hope Love Joy

I have not often lifted another layout - template? yes definitely - all the time! But to actually just look at somebody else's layout and make it my own - I don't think I have.

Until now!

I once shared a few Creative Teams with Miss Lita (aka Litabells Designs) and she did a layout with one of Amy Stoffel's kits that I just ADORED! Probably the simplicity and the white space.

This is my version of her beautiful layout...the link to hers is in my credits.

Live Life to the Fullest

Now you guys all know I LOVE is this for a template:

This is from the newest designer over at SCRAPBOOK GRAPHICS - STUDIO DUTCHIE! She has awesome templates in her store, so be sure to check her out.

Here are the "deets" on the layout:
As always, thanks for taking a moment out of your day to stop by here and say hello!

Non-Coffee Lover

This seems to be a popular layout over at Digital Scrap Cafe! I guess people wonder about those of us who don't drink coffee! I know it's not the norm, but I didn't expect it to get that much attention either....

Anyway - here's the layout...credits, as usual, are below:

Credits go to:
  • Kit: I Love You a Latte by Double Dutch Designs
  • Template: It belongs to somebody, but I can't remember who...I will update when I figure it out! LOL

Sweet Siblings

I know I previously mentioned being a guest for Sarah Bennett this month, well, by the time this posts, I will no longer be her guest but it was AWESOME to work with her designs for the month! Thanks for having me Sarah!

Here's a layout I did with one of her new kits:

Dancing is...

I don't think this layout is my norm. However, I find I am doing a lot out of my norm lately, so maybe it's the new norm!

Anyway, these are the shoes my daughter wore to the Junior Prom. We found them at DSW and they are SOOOOO CUTE!! Those little ruffles were just the most adorable thing I had ever seen! So you know I had to scrap them! LOL

Okay - score one for the hybrid girl! I am loving this layout - probably one of my best - no template used either! (Like you could create a template for this anyway!)

This layout was done for last week's Scrapbookgraphics Chat Challenge - Kate gave us the FREEDOM to do whatever we wanted - almost dared us to show off! LOL So this is what I did:

Everything on this layout belongs to Studio Flergs except the font (she doesn't make any as far as I know! LOL) I don't have a kit list for you on this one, but her store is HERE.

Thanks for stopping by! And be sure to stop by SBG tonight a 9pm EST for the chat! We have great fun and you won't want to miss it!

Moments We Keep

Do you remember your Junior Prom? I know I don't because I didn't go! LOL That is a story in itself and should be saved for another day! :)

Well this is my daughter, ready to leave for her Junior Prom with her boyfriend Nathan. She looked totally gorgeous (I know I am biased!)

Thanks for stopping by!! Hopefully more tomorrow!!

Make It a Wonderful Day

Kids are wonderful! (most of the time...LOL) Unfortunately, they have to grow! This is a picture of me and my youngest taken when he was about 3, maybe 4. Because I am usually behind the camera, there aren't a lot out there with me in them, so I have been trying to scrap them (and trying to take more so I don't have to use the same ones over & over again!)

Anyway - on to my layout. Did I tell you I am one of the newest members of the Charlize Creations Exquisite Team?!?! I didn't?!?!?! Well, guess what??? I AM!!

Here's my first layout for her:
