1st Layout ~ Growing Up ~~~ 2nd Layout ~ Back To School (1989)


Hi everyone!!  Gosh it seems like it's been forever since my last post....  But don't worry ~ I have 2 layouts for you today...
The first one is for Sketches In Thyme and it's a wonderful sketch from Helen Croft at Scrap A Little Sketches and just think of the possibilities you can do with it... 

 I changed the photo from landscape to portrait, used 2 doilies for my circles and MS border punch for the frame...  But don't stop there..  Can't wait to see what you come up with..  Remember to upload your creation so we can all see it and please check out the other Mavens and see what beautiful layouts they came up with... 
This is GD Savannah taken last Saturday.. August 28, 2010 ~ I just can't believe how fast she is growing up..  Not a "baby" girl anymore...  But she will always be Grandma's Baby Girl.....

Here are a few close ups:
Close up of my flowers with button centers, raffia bow, and some of my punch work...

Here is the Dusty Attic Chipboard Butterfly ~ I used stickles on it and it really sparkles IRL.. You can also see more punch work...

Hi again!  Here is my layout for this weeks challenge over at Ella's Pink Scrapbook Challenge ~ which by the way is your favorite color(s) and embellies...  Wow, was the color part difficult for me.. They have so many beautiful colors out there, but  I decided to use this beautiful Webster's Pages with creams, tans, greens, rust and navy....    And the embellies ~~ a piece of cake ~ PRIMAS... 

This is a photo of my kiddos back in August, 1989 ~ Amanda was 7 and Levi was 9.. This was taken in Alamogordo, NM and it was the first day of school.. Gosh they look sooo little and soooo cute....  They are now 28 and 30!!!! 

Here are a few close ups:
I printed this on BoBunny, used the Marvy Oval Scallop Circle Punch and then inked the edges... Added a little prima and a piece of Prima Flutter Vine...

Here you can see the beautiful Martha Stewart Butterfly stickers, some of my punch border around the photo and the my distressed edges....  Isn't this paper beautiful??  Love it!!!

Here are the beautiful primas and my raffia bow...
