Pumpkin Patch Layout

Here is today's layout.  While surfing for some challenges, I found a ton that had to do with Autumn, so I figured it was time to get out the class field trip to the pumpkin patch pictures.  I used a lot of Cloud 9 papers and some co'redinations Chocolate colections.  I used the Simply Charmed, Martha Stewart Holiday Cake and Straight from the nest Cricut Cartridges.  I will link the challenges below if you are interested!

Sorry, the quality of the pictures isn't very good today, my daughter is being a little demanding, and this is as good as it gets I guess.
Here is a close up of the left side
The pumpkins are from the MS cart, the tree is from SFTN and the cute Scarecrow is from SC.  One of the challenges was to use chipboard, so the pumpkin patch title is a bought chipboard embellishment that I sanded. 

Here is a close up of the cuts from my cricut.  I love the little scarecrow.

Here is a close up of the right side.

It is hard to see but under the big picture block on the right are 2 pull out tags with journaling.  Here is a close up of the cute girl scarecrow on this side.

Here is a list of Challenges I am entering this project in. 

Pile it on Cute and Charming...what could be cuter than the Simply Charming scarecrows!
A crafty little place Create an Autumn based project.
Tuesday Taggers Anything Autumn based.
The Fantabulous Cricut Must include sewing either by hand, machine or faux.

I think that is it!  Thank you for looking!  Enjoy the fall weather!

Why aren't the sugar plums dancing?

If you hadn't noticed, I tend to jump around a lot when I scrap.  These pictures are from Christmas Eve....ummmm....2006.  Just a little behind on this one!  I love my boys in some Christmas jammies! 

Since my gypsy is still not home (I miss her sooooo much!) I had to do this LO the Old school, no welded title...that was the hardest part! LOL.  Anyway, here it is.
The title is from Nursery Rhymes, the cute little deer are from Christmas Cheer, and I flocked them!  So impressed with my self! LOL
Here is a close up of the left page.

Check ou the cute raindeer!

The cirlces all from Accent Essentials.  Here is a close up of the right side.

Thinking of you Card

I made this card with Lacy Labels and a digi stamp from Whoopsi Daisy.  The challenge this month was Pile on the Flowers.  I have never used digi stamps, or even really colored stamps before, so I am still not sure I am crazy about the way it turned out, but I can now say that I have done it! I love the stamp though! LOL.  Thanks for looking!

Welcome Baby Card

This card I made for two different challenges.  The first one is over at Cricut Cardz Challenge to make a baby card using only the colors orange, yellow, green and white.  The second challenge is over at My Pink Stamper to use any bird.  So of course I got out 3 birds on Parade.  I didn't think I wanted this cartridge, but I have used is so much already!  The bird is cut at 3 1/2 and the label behind him is from Lacy Labels and cut at 4 1/4.  The background card is from DCWV and I chalked it green.  Thanks for looking!

Birthday Card

I made this card today for a family friend. I used the Martha Stewart All Occasions Cake cartridge for it.  I'm not sure which stack the patterned paper came from, but I think it is so pretty!  The solid papers are coredinations.  I finally got my Jolee's hotset gem tool ready to go, so of course I added some of those too!

My attempt at cards

So far in my crafting life I have never made a I decided to try it.  It is much easier to do with out my gypsy than a layout, but I still miss my little "G!" I used 3 Birds on parade for these Christmas cards.  Any and all comments would be appriciated, I am trying really hard to get into card making and need some advise!  Thanks for looking!

School Picture Layout

I wanted to do the Fantabulous Cricut Button up for School challenge...then my gypsy broke.  So, this layout isn't quite what I had invisioned, but it's done and cute!  I used Pooh font for the title and doodlecharms for the backpacks.  The buttons are made by Ki memories.  Thanks for looking!
Here's the left side alittle closer.

Autumn Splendor Mini Album

I made this album for the cricut circle weekend contest.  I don't know if it will qualify or not because it was supposed to be a layout or a card, but I did a card with a layout in it!  It is for my parents for Grandparent's day, only a little late!  That's how I roll!!!   It was a lot of fun to make!  I think I might do these more often, I think they look cool on a table as decor too!

Anyway, here it is all closed up!

There is a ton of Cricut in this project!  The title is Songbird and the papers are almost all from DCWV Amber Autumn stack.

Here it is when untied and opened up of the front

Here are a couple of close ups from the front.  The little kids are from A child's year, the tree is from Stretch your Imagination. The deer, flourish on the first "page " and the squirrel frame are all from Cindy Loo.

And the back of it all opened up

Here is a close up of that cute little owl!  I love it!  It is from the Paisley cartridge, cute huh, he's right there in front of my daughter Paizley! LOL

On the picture below the acorn and leaves are from Celebrate with Flourish and the owls are from a stamp in my stash.

My Gypsy says I used some other cartridges but I am not sure on what!  I cut some things out and didn't use them!
Thanks for looking!

Update: I was a winner on the Circle forum with my mini book!

Happy Birthday Layout

I am SOOOOO glad this LO is finished! It has been quite an adventure getting it finished with 6 kids here all day!  I finally got it done about 15 minutes ago, as a matter of fact the stickles are still wet!  I used Sesame Street Font for the title, Sesame Street Friends for the Abby Cadabby and Celebrations for the the "2" tag.

Here is a close up of the left page

Here is a closer picture of Abby. She was a booger to put together and I'm not really happy with the way she turned out, but she'll do!

Here is a close up of the right page and the tag that will fit down behind the picture on the left once the glitter is dry!

I like to include the cards from the birthday party too, so they slide down in the pocket behind the picture on the left too. 

I have to give a shout out to my Mom too, she made the wonderful Abby Dress that my sweet Paizley is wearing!

School Pictures Layout

Hey everyone, I finally decided to do something with the school pictures from last year...Yes, I am a bad momma, they were still in the Lifetouch envelope!  This is my son, Levi's fall and spring pics from pre-k.  The LO will eventually go into his school scrapbook, once I find the perfect one!

I used my Speaking of School Cricut Cartridge for the title, Learning Curve for the Pre-K label and Give a Hoot for the borders. 

Here is a close up of the Left page:

And the Right page:

I used DCWV grade School stack for most of the papers.  The LEVI brads are from Spare Parts.

The Last Blast of Summer

We spent our Labor Day weekend camping at Stone Mountain.  The had a "Last Blast of Summer" Celebration.  There were concerts all day Saturday.  We played mini golf, rode the train, played at Camp Outland Post and ended the day watching the concert and the fireworks and laser show after dark.  It was a great weekend, here is the first layout!

The word BLAST and the bubble it is on is from the superman cartridge
The scallops are from Straight from the Nest.

Here is a close up of the left page.

The kid on the firework is from A child's year and the fireworks themselves are from Stand and Salute.

Here is a close up of the right page.

Summer is from Straight from the Nest and all other writing is from Zooballoo.

This layout was a lot of fun to make, especially since I usually don't scrap and event this soon after the fact!  Thanks for looking!
