Boy, this is such a busy time of year, isn't it? I didn't realize it's been 11 days since I posted anything here. My youngest had his preschool graduation today. My other 3 still have a couple weeks of school, but there is a lot going on in those last couple weeks!

Here are two more layouts I did over National Scrapbooking Day weekend. These are a couple of my favorites!

Thanks for stopping by... I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Hybrid baby gift and a layout...

I recently posted about taking a hybrid creative team position for Trixie Scraps. Here is my most recent project. This uses A Rainbow Promise collab by Trixie Scraps and Ellie Lash. I picked up the paint can at Michael's with a 40% off coupon. Gotta love those coupons!

I made this for a baby gift for my son's 3rd grade teacher. I filled it with a cute little outfit and some baby bath supplies. I love how it turned out, and Noah's teacher really like it too!

This is actually my first true hybrid project, so it was a learning experience. I printed the yellow pattern paper on multi purpose printer paper, and then adhered it to cardstock to make it sturdier. I would have printed on matte photo paper, but my printer kept jamming! I'm still trying to figure out why it won't print on the photo paper, but I think it looks decent on the regular printer paper. I created the bracket panel in photoshop, added the brown and cream papers and the giraffe image, printed and then cut out the panel. I used the terrificly tacky tape to assemble, then added the ribbon, flowers and buttons. I made a little matching card too...

Here is a layout I created with the same kit (A Rainbow Promise)...

I did this layout for a NSD template challenge. My twins are 8 years old now, it's hard to believe they were ever that small!

Well, I've got some housework to do... Blech!! :) Hope you have a wonderful day!

Adventures Ahead!

Hi there! I've recovered from the busy NSD weekend, so I'm finally back to post again. I needed a few days to recuperate. LOL I had so much fun participating in the challenges at Digital Candy, and I can't believe I finished 13 layouts over the weekend. That is definitely a record for me! I will post them here over the next week or two.

But first I want to post this layout before I forget. I created this with Adventures Ahead, a recent collab by A+ Designs and Bekah E Designs. I love this kit... I'm always on the lookout for cute, boy-ish kits (since I have 3 boys in my house), and this kit is just what I need!

Here is the full preview of the kit... isn't it adorable?! (Image is linked to the store)

It's past my bedtime, so I'm off to get some zzzz's! Thanks for stopping by....
