My First Attempt at Distressing

I made this tag after I saw Tim Holtz at the Mega Meet last month. It was fun to make. It is made with Distress Ink and Perfect Pearl powders on the embossing on the heart. Just need to incorporate them into my layouts for a different look. Just what I needed....more product to buy!

4 Recent Layouts



Been doing about a layout a week, could do more, but guess it is better than none. The above layout is from last March when the grandkids were here. This was taken at Hudson Mills.




I had posted these pictures awhile back and finally made a layout with them.



Just love this picture with Tyler's back to us. Meagan took this in Florida out back of her Grandmother’s home by the lake.  Journaling:

“I love this picture. Very seldom we Tyler so still and serious”



This is for my All About Me Album.  Wanted to scrap the summer I worked up at the Island.  Was a real experience.

Layout for the Birthday Boy


Tyler turned 4. He is getting to be such a big boy. These pictures were taken last spring when they were here. Sounds as though in couple months he will actually be on a soccer team.

These pictures are from Kalen during Christmas last year, 2008. Just finally going through some old pictures that I forgot to put in a layout. Definitely had to put these in a layout, too cute.

Then the last layout I did this weekend, was an oldie but a goodie. This is taken at Cedar Point in 1972, the day after Prom.

Finally Won a Giveaway


After a couple years of posting on numerous scrapbook blogs, I finally won a giveaway. It is from Making Memories and is the Mistletoe collection. It is really cute. Love the felt snowflakes and the glitter paper. Can’t wait to play with it. With getting ready for Christmas, will have to though.

Sweet Little Thing

little girl

Was able to do a few layouts a couple weekends ago. 3 layouts in one sitting is great for me. Love the colors in the layout above. Purple is not my favorite, but love it on this layout.



This is from when the kids visited this summer. Tyler running around in the back yard in his pajamas catching lighting bugs.Precious

This is an older picture of Brianna when she was just a few years old.  Love how she is holding the mirror while she blows her hair dry. So cute.

So Darn Cute

222 I did this layout sometime ago and never got around to posting.  Tyler can be such a goofball, but so darn cute! I haven’t scrapped in the last few weeks, so hoping I can get down in my studio this weekend for a little creative outlet.

I am working on a full photo album of my own for Jessica’s wedding and almost done. So will post that soon. It was suppose to be a simple and easy album, but has been more of a job than expected. As usual I put to much in it, just the way I scrap I guess!

Mini Book and Scrap Money!


I gathered a few of my scrapbook items, ok a lot, that I doubted I would use anymore and put them in a garage sale at a local scrapbook store. My total sales were 124.00!!Yippee. Now I can buy more supplies.


mini book

Here is look at the mini book I made over the weekend at a make and take at Archivers Scrapbook Store. It was really easy and fun. Now have to figure out which pictures to put in it.

Mega Meet

Well I skipped out of work early on Thursday, which was a real feat in itself, and went over to the Mega Meet in Novi. I took a SEI class on making an acrylic album. It was surprisingly easy and the outcome was really cute.

The main thing to do is use double sided paper, so the backside of the page is already done when you finish with the front side. Just add a few embellishments, and you are done. We received a 40% coupon to use at their booth and bought these cute rub-ons.

I found one vendor that had the new Jellybean Soup line and picked up a few items there.

Another find I found was @Rusty Pickle. They were having half off on their kits. So I picked up this cardboard album kit for $ 12.00. Should be fun to do.

Then picked up some new Basic Grey Bling to use in Jess's wedding album I am tackling at the moment

Just wish I could have not worried about work and really enjoyed myself more. But with my phone going off all the time, just not as relaxing as I would have liked. Yea I could have turned off the phone, but need to sell those houses, or I won't have money to buy scrapbook stuff!!
