Sleepy Girl & Popper's Precious Girl Layouts

Hey There,

It's Friday night, hubby went to bed, tv is turned off, dog is with hubby and I have a nice hot cup of tea near me and I'm wide awake. What better time to post two more layouts that I completed. I'm trying very hard to stay on top of them so I don't fall behind. I have another 4 piles of pictures printed ready to go and if I get to have the Bnut ( my nickname for my granddaughter) this weekend,  I'm sure I will end up with another large pile after I get those printed. Well anyway...on to my layouts.

Lets Scrap inspiration sketch 5-23-12
Here's what I came up with
Now this layout was entered in the Let's Scrap Our Stash challenge #33.
I needed to use the following...

  • 2 patterned papers (black/gray printed paper & raspberry color print paper)
  • 2 card stock (bee & flowers for the butterfly trail)
  • 2 die cuts (bee & flowers for the butterfly trail)
  • 2 flowers ( purple flower & flowers for the butterfly trail)
  • 2 blings (butterfly & jewels on the flowers on the butterfly trail)
I has a 2fer and a 3fer on this layout... hehehehe... the bee counted twice, the flowers for the butterfly trail counted 3 times.
In the pictures are Jason, my son-in-law, Tammy my daughter and Brooklyn my granddaughter. Tammy and Jason are Aunt and Uncle to Brooklyn not the parents. Tammy had this hat made in Seattle WA at a craft booth at Pikes Place Market while we were there on vacation. We didn't think the crafter would be done by the time our tour bus was ready to leave but she did it and I think that hat is so stinkin cute with the flower and the bee.

Now, on to the second layout...

 My take on the sketch...

I love these pictures, my hubby actually is holding Brooklyn while she is awake. Poor guy everytime he held her before she was always sleeping. Now she is wide awake. Look at her little fingers holding his... it just swells my heart. He is going to be called Popper. The journaling reads "I thought I had forgotten how to hold a baby but my arms remember". I thought that fit perfect with the pictures.

Well my tea is just about gone, I'm going to check the weather one last time and hit the hay. We are in for a big snowstorm tomorrow so I'll be home bound for the weekend...and that's fine by me.

Hope everyone has a great night!

I Believe In Santa

Greetings,

Today I have another layout to share. This layout is for a challenge#34 Shades of Blue in the group Let's Scrap Our Stash at Let's Scrap.

Inspiration Sketch 09-09-09
My take on the sketch

Now to explain a little about this layout. My picture was taken with Santa today at work (notice my shirt is blue). We had a Meeting/Christmas Party where Santa showed up. I had to have my picture taken in front of our beautiful tree (notice the wall behind the tree is blue). I took two pictures of the tree, one with the lights on and one with them off. Cut the two in half and swapped a side to get that look. I used a tag I made from a tag swap last year that was left over (I always make extras when I do swaps). I think I met all requirements for this challenge (Shades of Blue). 

Now on to make challenge #35. Stay tuned  to see what I came up with. 
These are a lot of fun. Why not visit http://letsscrap.ning.com/ and give one of the challenges a try. At the very least you will be inspired to get some of your own pages made.

2 More Layouts

Happy Monday,

Why does the weekend go by so fast? I could use another day off, what about you?

Yesterday I worked on two layouts. I used inspiration sketches from Let's Scrap. To visit their site you can click here... http://letsscrap.ning.com/

The first layout was from sketch 12-29-10











Here's my take on the layout...











The second layout was from sketch ...











and here's my take on the layout...













I need some practice on sewing on paper. I was worried that the paper would rip so I let the machine pull it where it wanted so the border ended up very crooked and uneven. I wonder if I would have used a zigzag stitch it would not tend to move around so much. I will give that a try the next time.

Mima's Girl

Hi There,

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Tonight I did a 2 page layout of the adorable little Brooklyn and her Mima (Moi). I used sketch tagged 11-7-12 from Let's Scrap.

Here's the inspiration sketch...











Here's my take on the sketch...












I wanted to spritz some perfect pearls but the sprayer was clogged. I tried to wash it but it still didn't work so I ended up just doing some drops around the page.
