It's Delicious to Laugh little boy layout





I Just completed this scrapbook layout of my grandson in his jeep - the two photos on the layout were taken a year apart and it is such a pleasure to see the Joy on his face whenever he drives this jeep.  I used Creative PL papers from Aldi, Prima stamp for the date, Sizzix Envelope Manilla Large Die, Bella Kinda Krafty papers for the ticket stubs and various other elements I had in my stash.  The cars and the title were stamped with stamp sets that came from the dollar store that are just made out of foam with the rubber stamp attached to the back side.  I added twine, brads, and tabs that I also had in my stash.  I used my silhouette to cut out the polaroid frame and the arrow.

Wishg you all you are wishing for




Another page completed.  This is a mixed media layout using a stencil and texture paste for the background.  Then it was colored with watercolor paints.   The checkerboard embellishment, birds and arrows were cut with my Cameo.  The arrow and bird embellishments were cut files from Miss Kate Cuttables and I added glitter to them.  A piece of twine added and the layout was complete!

First Class








This is a page that I just completed to enter in a challenge on Scrap it With attitude on facebook.  The requirements were you could use any colors but you had to include stamping, embossing and journaling.  For the stamping I used Urban Stamps "All Aboard - Air Mail" stamp set, Hero Arts "International Tour De Luxe" stamp set, these were then embossed using clear or black embossing powder.  The paper collection was from CratePaper Random Collection Kit.  I used ribbon, my silhouette cameo to cut out the circles, Dovecraft Alphabet stamp, some burgundy plastic beaded trim (not sure where this came from), burlap, staples, ribbon and I hid the journaling behind the main photo at the top with a Pull tab so that it would not be visible on the page.
