Lovely From Sunrise Til Sunset

I am still using up some photo's from last spring and summer!! I haven't quite figured out if I'm THAT far behind in my scrapping or maybe I just take too many pictures!! LOL Either way here are more photo's from Lake George. Once again I see glimpses of what she will look like as an adult.

A Cherry On Top Becky Fleck Sketch Challenge

Here is my take on the A Cherry On Top Becky Fleck Sketch Challenge. You can check the challenge out at the PageMaps Blog.

I've decided I am going to do an album of my daughters school photo's. It was my plan to start with her pre school photo and then do 2 pages of each grade thereafter. Since she get's pictures done twice a year once in the fall and then again in the spring I will have two pages of each grade. Shockingly I didn't quite stick with the plan and started with Grade 3. I had these papers out on the table when I started going through the photo's and really wanted to use this photo with them....I'm sure it doesn't matter since I am terrible about getting my pages put right into albums!


I used more of my Scrapbook Circle Kit, Hello Sunshine on this page. I think this might be my most used kit of 2011. Love it!
Happy Weekend!

Let's Scrap Wednesday Sketch And A Mess?

This weeks sketch had alot of white space and although I like white space, I don't often apply it! Today is no exception since I used black and grey paper in my "white" space. Who knew I was such a rebel! LOL Either way I had fun working with the sketch. I happily showed my hubby. He looks at it. Makes a face and says "what is that mess"!!?? Just as I was ready to go for his throat? I realize he was talking about the photo. teehee. He thought it was just a picture of our messy table! I guess you have to be a scrapper to see the beauty in that "mess"! To create my "mess" I used some yummy Echo Park papers from my Scrapbook Circle Kit.

Here is the sketch 5-11-11~Give it a try. I would love to see what you come up with. When you add your page to the Let's Scrap Gallery make sure you tag your it  5-11-11
                                                Happy Hump Day!

Happy Mother's Day And A Page

Happy Mother's Day~I hope all of my scrappy Mom friends had a great day! It's late and I'm a little tired but wanted to share this photo. Something about it just sums up how I feel about being a Mom. I love this kid!

                                         Howard AND my Rannuculus enjoyed the sun today!

There was even a little scrapping going on today! I am still working on this Cosmo Cricket, Early Bird Collection. Sometimes I will buy a collection, make a page and then in goes into the hoarding pile. Not this one, all the bright colors and cutie embellisments....I never tire of it! I also tryed my hand at some white space.

Making Friends And A Page for Let's Scrap

Some of you already know that all of my LSS's have closed and I don't really have a regular place to crop anymore. I've posted pictures of my scrap table you know. I really don't have a place/space to crop! lol Well yesterday I went to a crop. My first in over a year? I took an hour to get there but was well worth the ride. Not only did I get to scrap for 12 uninterrupted hours but I got to meet (for the first time) an old friend. What's that you say? MEET an old friend? Yup that's what I said. My scrappy friend Rosey. We've been through thick and thin in the scrappy world for the last three or four years. The rise and fall of Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends..... Pages In Time and now the sweet day's of Bella Creations....we have participated in the same swaps and challenges...we chat on Facebook and all without ever actually meeting!! Well guess what? That all changed yesterday. I finally got to meet her and her awesome friends. She is bubbly, kind and funny...all the things I expected. Oh and she is lucky!! Girl won nearly every prize on the table!! Don't make me stab you was the joke of the day. LOL I can't wait to repeat the day!

Here is one of the pages I worked on yesterday. What better than a friendship page. This doll went everywhere with Kelsey last summer. I called it her mini me since it resembled her so much as an infant. In the photo Kelsey is trying to decide what her baby wanted to eat while on vacation. I'm sad to think that day's of playing with baby doll's are over. She was starting to get funny looks carrying that baby doll around anyway. Hard to believe she is only 9 in this photo.
I used one page of a Let's Scrap Sketch. I used Basic Grey all the way on this one. Even the dotted Bazzill  is from the matching Olivia Cardstock Pack. OK almost all Basic Grey. The K, the pom pom trim and pearls are not.
