I want to be a cowboy....

This set of pages wasn't really created as a 2-page spread but more as 2 1 page layouts that work together since each child "stars" in a page :P Pretty much all papers and stickers on these are OA Sasparilla. But, I also used SC Mr Hueys, AC Thickers, Bazzill CS, Jenni Bowlin ink, and SC cloud stamps w/ Fiskars punches on the right side. The clouds on the left were fussy cut from the OA paper.

TFL and thanks for all the lovely comments on my last post. Will be blog hopping this weekend!

Brother Love and BG serendipity

This is a layout I made with a bunch of the Serendipity line from BG for Joann's as well as a little Lily Bee, some AC thickers, and stamps from a Studio Calico July add-on. Love the circle border and the dr Seuss quote.

The pictures are from my oldest's 6th birthday - he got a bicycle - and are of him letting his little brother try it out with and without him. I also love the pic of my husband and parents on the left- I treasure it especially because this was one of the last birthdays Dad participated in as he was diagnosed with and passed away from cancer since then.

Anyway, not much more to say about this LO- I used my colorbox chalk ink, EK success layering punches and AC washi in addition to the BG papers and embellies. TFL :)

Petit Creek Farm

Another LO I did for a CHA 2012 2 Peas challenge (color scheme) and with the Pieces of Me kit as a starting point. This LO is also from the same fall field trip pictures

I used SC and EP appers, MME washi, flair and bookpages from the kit, Dear Lizzy PP for the camera, SC sticker, BG alpha, and an EK success punch

Class Field Trip

I did this LO a while back too- in fact I used it for a CHA challenge at 2 Peas which was back in July *LOL* It started with the SC/2 Peas class kit but I added stuff from my own stash, too. It was fun to do a LO that would typically be fall (field trip to a corn maze and pumpkin patch) but do something completely different instead :)

BTW, the color cast is a little wrong on this photo- the main patterned paper is greener IRL and the yellow is slightly less bright

Anyway, the papers are SC and MME and I also used LB die-cuts/paper. Alphas are SC (tuny) and AC mistable thickers. I also used OA sprinklers, SC veneers, and KaiserCraft rhinestones and pearls

For the Love of the Game

With 2 boys playing baseball, I have a ton of BB photos to scrap! I made this LO at archivers a couple months ago - would have been easier with the new SC Starburst mask but I made do with a couple scrap pieces of paper *LOL* The base is Bazzill resist cardstock sprayed with glimmer mists. I matted the photos on more bazzill and added CC Tiny Type letters, Bella Blvd stickers (quote), AC Thickers, Deja Views brads, and WRMK grommet.

Pretty simple but I like it and it's a little different than most of my baseball LOS :)

SC Elmwood Park - Party!

Ahhhh! I'm back again.... can I ever manage to blog consistently? Well, I am gonna give it a try - again! :P

Anyway, I joined Studio Calico kit club back in July. My previous kit club closed at the beginning of the year and I missed getting that happy mail - plus I have discovered that I will actually use SC stamps on layouts - go figure :P

So this was one my first LOs made with Elmwood Park and its add-ons (I had a discount code and I really liked this month so I ordered 3)

This LO has a lot of white space but I kinda like it this time. I do think I should have added twine to the buttons and make go back to do that but am overall pleased with the LO.  I know I added the long yellow border and title stickers  from my stash (and probably the buttons too) but I think everything else was from the kits :)
