Photo Shoot

Isn't he adorable?  Yes, I'm prejudiced, he's my Grandson, Jacob.

Well Jacob, his Mom Sara, his Aunt Ellie and Me (Mimi) set out to take some pictures of this little handsome man.  Yes, it took 3 of us.  Mainly because I was still recovering from surgery.

Echo Park's Times and Seasons line has moustache paper, perfect for this layout, in fact all the papers on this are from this line with the exception of the journaling spot.  It was made using brown kraft card stock and Spellbinders Labels 18 with bling from Want2Scrap.

EK Success Border punch was used on the navy blue and finally I had a bit of black tulle that I tied in a bow.

Pop Up Birthday Card

Had to wait til today to post this one.  My Niece, Kendall celebrated her 16th birthday today and didn't want her to see it before hand.  What you don't see is the gift card the slides right behind the pink portion.  There is a slot that holds cards upright.

All paper products are from KI Memories.  The Pop Up is made using a die from Sizzix.

If you have looked at previous entries on my blog you will recognize the dies that have the sentiments stamped on.  I seem to always reach for this Spellbinders Die - Label 20.  For the inside mat I traced the outline of the die with an exacto knife to get a tight mat.

The bling on the front of the card is from Want2Scrap.  Love how they coordinate with Spellbinders.

It's A Boy Thing Layout

Just some fun silly pictures of my Grandson Dominic doing what he does best - having fun!  The papers are from The Paper Studio, Hobby Lobby's Line.  The title, stars and bike are Dazzles that I got at CKC.  The buttons, are actually die cuts that I made with Sizzix sizzlets die.  Got some washi tape and a few Tim Holtz goodies as well.

I do love this little guy!

I went a little flower crazy on this layout

It's been a while since I dug into my flower stash.  Bout time I did though.  These pics are when Katie came over after I bought my new purse.  She's a big Michael Kors fan.  I knew she would appreciate the purchase.

The papers and embellie are from Anna Griffin, I used a Martha Stewart Punch and Spellbinders Foliage die for the leaves.  My stash of flowers are all mixed together in a big clear container so I can pick and choose easily, this means I can't tell you who made what.  The papers I chose looked a little busy all together so I added a piece of lace to tame it down.
