Sweet girl LO

This layout is of the pictures taken when my baby girl, Paizley was only 4 months old.  She is so pretty in these pictures, if I do say so myself!  She really didn't want her pictures taken that day, but when she wasn't especting it, the photographer got some great shots!

Isn't she pretty? 
Here is a close up of the left side

The word Sweet is from Create a Critter and the frame under the "Girl" is from Songbird, both were cut on Co'ordinations Chocolate.  The flowers are all primas from my stash and the paper is from memory makers.

Here is a close up of the right side

There are more pimas and the little onsie is from Wall Decor and More. 
Thanks for letting me show off my pretty little baby.  Wish she would have stayed this small!

Pumpkin Patch Princess

I made this LO today while my dear hubby was sweet enough to take the kids to a birthday party for me.  These pics were from when we took our daughter with us on a field trip for my oldest to the pumpkin patch.  She is a little princess...then she was still sweet too!

The Pumpkin Paper is from The Paper Studio and I used Lacy Labels to cut the scalloped circle.

Here is a close up of the left page

I used Songbird for the title.  I love this font. I also glittered it with Martha Stewart glitter.  The pumpkin and vines are from Happily Ever After.  Here are close ups.

Here is a close up of the right page.  The journaling is under the top right picture.  It is a lift open flap like a card.

And here is a close up of the pumpkin, just because I think it is pretty!

That's it for today!  Thanks for looking!  Happy Crafting!

Christmas gifts!

I saw this idea on the Cricut Message board, only they included the last name of the family also, however I really like the monogrammed letters on Tie the Knot and thought it would be too much.  This was so super easy to do, and I think it looks  very elegant!  It is just vinyl on a ceramic floor tile.   I am thinking that this is what everyone is getting for Christmas this year!  Set it with a plate stand from the craft store and it is done!  I used a 12X12 because that is what I had on hand, but I am thinking I may do some smaller ones too as I know some of my friends and family have smaller homes and places to display.

Robotz Layout

Here is the layout I finished today.  It is my son, Levi's 3 year old page.    I get so tired of the boring titles like "3 years old" so I changed it up this time.  The only cartridge I used was Robotz. 

The papers are more from my stash...I really shouldn't take it all out of the stacks and packages...but I can't remember who it is from.  I actually stamped directly onto the background paper...that is rare for me!   The stamps are some clear acrylic ones, but once again, out of the package, and I don't remember who makes them!

Here is the close up of the left page.  Every year on their birthday I ask my kids a bunch of questions, like their favorite food, color, tv get the picture. I think it is fun to look back and see how things change, so of course I include that in their annual scrapbook page too!

And the right side

Here is a close up of the big robot, I love this guy...he turned out cute, he's juggling letter brads that spell Levi.

Here are close ups of the other 2 robotz.  Cute little guys!  I am so glad that I got a chance to play with this cart, it is too much fun!

So there it is, thanks for looking!  I love comments, even if you hate it! :)

Easter Dresses

These kids around my house keep wanting me to do things like feed them, play with them, change them...don't they know I have scrapping to do?  I did manage to get this Layout done even though I got interupted about a million times.  Hey, it's all part of the fun right?!?

A little background info for this LO, I like to shop, and I love to see my sweet daughter all dressed up, so she ended up with a lot of dresses she could wear for Easter, and that is good, she needed them, because she went through 3 of them after making chocolate messes on them!

I used Lacy Labels, Ashlyn's Alphabet and Cindy Loo for this layout.

The polka dot paper is Paper Studio, the rest....well, it is from my stash.

I am still not sure about this layout, kind of busy, but it is done none the less!!! 

Here is a close up of the left page

The title block

The right page

And the journaling that I almost always try to hide!  There are a couple of extra pictures tucked in the pocket too,  and I added some journaling on the back of them too, but they are pretty boring, just plain matted pics!

That's it for now, thanks for looking, I would love some input!

Leaf it to us

For this layout I used my E and my gypsy (can't cricut without it!) I also used Makin' the grade for the font, the squirrel is from Cindy Loo and the leaves are from many different carts.  I used my General's Chalk Pencils to accent the leaves.  

The journaling is on a leaf in the bottom right corner and talks of the leaf fight my sons had while we were camping at Stone Mountain. 

Here are some close ups of the pages

It's all about ME!!

I finally decided to see what this was all about and set up a blog to share some of my scrapbooking creations.  I'm just learning the ins and outs so be gentle with me!

I am a stay at home mom to 2 sons, 1 daughter and a step daughter part time.  I am also a babysitter to 3 more wonderful kids!  We are a military family and live in Georgia. 

I love to take pictures and scrapbook.  My favorite tools are my Cricut Expression, gypsy and my camera.  I am hoping to share some of my work and hopefully get some input to help me improve!
