Here is what I created for this week's challenge
using the Skunk Love digi: 
This is probably a Valentines image, but I think it's really important to let people know you are thinking of them throughout the year. Plus this is just way too cute of an image. I 💖 it! I would love to find out how to make this a scratch and sniff image! How fun would that be 😊

And I just have to share....this is what is left of my last project that didn't get posted...
Yup, I left it in reach of my puppy. He is luck he is so darn cute!

Here is what I created for this week's challenge
using the Umbrella Sophie digi: 
I love this image...I think she is so adorable! I have used her before and will probably use her again because I 💖 it so much. My card base is actually from a Creative Memories kit I bought this past weekend while I was at a crop. Kits are a great way to keep up on life sometimes. And you definitely don't need to stick to the designs the kit comes with. Have fun with the kit whether it's a card kit or a page layout! I'm sure you'll see more bases from the kit during those hectic weeks.

Family

Here's another layout for the baby album.
Aren't owls just the cutest! I just realized I still need to add journal lines to the narrow pink paper going down the right side of the page...hahaha! I definitely want to have plenty of room for the family to journal throughout the album. As cute as layouts can be, it's still all out the journey for me.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day 😎

Tiny Footsteps...

...make the biggest imprints on our hearts!  Here is another layout for my co-workers baby album that I am making.
I'm not sure why there is a shadow since I scanned it on my computer. I guess it's because the flower centers are a little high up. But I just LOVE the sayings on these embellishments. Another simple layout, but I think the baby will highlight the page just perfectly!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Sunday 😎

 Starts: Friday, November 16th, 12:00 AM (eastern time)
Ends: Friday, November 23rd,  12:00 AM(eastern time)

Here is what I created for this week's challenge
for The Paper Shelter using their Thanksgiving Turkey digi: 
This is a two page layout with some old photos....but hey, at least they are in a scrapbook now!
Cause as we know....if it's not in the scrapbook then it didn't happen...hahahaha! 
This cute digi is pre-colored so it makes any page or card super cute very quickly.

And here's what I created for this week's challenge
for Morgan's Artworld using their Teddy Dancer digi.
This is another two page layout for a co-worker who just had their 3rd baby. I am making an album for them. The pages will be a little "plain" but I find it's harder to plan a page for someone that you don't know that well (I actually work with the husband) and you don't know kind of photos
they take. But it is a lot of fun and I am enjoying making the album for them!

It didn't scan as well as I would have liked but this is an amazing 
stamp a friend let me borrow! I stamped it in Staz On brown and 
it set the background for a beautiful look. I colored it with my

a great masculine card!

Jo's Scrap Shack Turns 6!!!!

I am super excited to announce that 
Jo's Scrap Shack turns 6 this month! 
And I am even more excited to be one of her Blogaversary Designers! 

Here is a birthday layout I created to help celebrate. The layout design is 
from a Close to My Heart Hostess Club that I belonged to (and really, 
really miss participating in!). Here is the "cover" of the two-page spread:
Each page has pages underneath by using the Flip Flaps from Close to My Hear

On the left page it opens up to:
And on the right page the "cake" is all Flip Flaps that open to:

And finally they reveal the inside of the right page!
My mom had three birthday celebrations that year so I needed room for 
LOTS of pictures...LOL! And the last picture is of all three August 
birthdays in my family cutting their cakes. Yes, I was crazy enough
to get them each their own favorite cake (although turns out my BIL 
gave me his favorite, not my sister's...LOL!).

Thank you so much for joining me on this Blogaversary celebration!
I am looking forward to spending more time blogging and definitely
designing for Jo's Scrap Shack!

SMASH kit

I just wanted to quickly share part of a SMASH kit I finally finished putting together. I have a SMASH book...it has a lot of beautiful page...
