Here is another page from National Scrapbooking Day. One of our favorite weekend activities is going to a bookstore and relaxing with a good book or magazine. My husband snapped this picture of our daughter on one such occasion and I thought it would make a nice little scrapbook page. I used Spring Moss cs from PTI as the base of my layout. The patterned paper and flower embellie are from the Color Couture Collection Vol. 2, also from PTI. The velvet ricrak and letter stickers for the title are from American Crafts, while the smaller letter stickers are from Making Memories. I also notched the corners of the patterned paper with a We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper. Looking forward to posting more creations soon! Enjoy!!! *wink*

Grow with Love . . .

Ugh. I have been so busy lately, but that is how the end of the school year seems to go . . . *sigh* Oh well, only a few more weeks left. Here is another page I made during the National Scrapbooking Day crop I attended. This photo of my daughter was taken on Easter this year. I used some patterned paper from the Making Memories Flutter collection and the title was done with American Crafts Thickers. The stamped medallion was done using this year's PTI Anniversary Set, Round & Round and the new For the Graduate stamp set. Colors are Aqua Mist, New Leaf and Raspberry Fizz. Kept things fairly simple here. Hope to be able to post more soon!!!

Pretty in Pink . . .

Last Saturday was National Scrapbooking Day. I spent the day at the Scrappy Boutique for 16 hours of sweet cropping bliss with my two best girlfriends. We had a fabulous time! We each finished 9 pages, and did a little shopping too!!! Here is one of my pages. I really wanted to use one of my new PTI stamp sets, A Little Argyle. I thought it would make the perfect accent for this picture of Kaleigh in her pretty pink Chicago Cubs outfit. I stamped an argyle photo mat, border, and even a little pink baseball! The hodgepodge of alphabet letters are from American Crafts and Making Memories. Ink and cardstock colors are PTI Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, and Fresh Snow. I *love* this page! I grew up in a family of die-hard Cubs fans and pink is my absolute *favorite* color!!! I'll be looking forward to sharing more pages from my crop here in the next few days so make sure to check back soon . . . *wink*

Birthday Girl . . .

Here is another fun layout. This one features some not-quite-perfect photos from my daughter's 1st Birthday. I still wanted to scrapbook the occasion so I decided to crop the photos fairly small. I used some Dear Lizzy patterned paper, stickers, and Thickers letters from American Crafts. The base of my layout is PTI's Sweet Blush cardstock. I also added some felt flowers and corduroy brads from Stampin' Up. It is so hard to remember that she was ever this small!!! I am hoping to get my layouts from the weekend uploaded to share with you soon! *wink*
