My 3 Loves.

Hello and good morning...

Happy Survivor Day!! I'm totally looking forward to the new episode tonight. Are you watching this season? Do you have a fave character yet?

I had time to get done one layout yesterday and I scrapped this one for fun. I used my October Scrapbook Circle kit and played along with the October Scrapbook Circle sketch.

The photos are of the 3 kids about 6 months apart.


I fussy cut the banners and added a cute cork camera:


Then I mixed and matched arrows and alphas for the title:


There ya go....

Chubby Cheeks.

Hello and good morning....

I'm up over on the My Scraps & More blog today.
When the Fancy Pants True Friend line came out, I was in love with the colors and kinda instantly thought what a great fall line. But I actually have been finding that it works with pretty much any season, and I really enjoy a collection that can stretch itself and be so versatile. I love that!!!!!

I pulled some older photos of my lil one from 2012 to work with, I just couldn't resist those lil chubby cheeks and needs to scrap the pictures.


I decided to add some random stitching along the circles going across the center strips. I used one of the label stickers for a quote.


 I added a touch of turquoise mist to the page also:


and I am completely smitten with the Ephemera pack which comes with SO many embellies.


So don't miss out on this amazing collection... I really love it.. and I'm pretty sure you will too!! Check it out on the My Scraps Store HERE.
Also I used the My Scraps & More sketch #92, make sure to check it out and play along, there's a wonderful monthly prize to play for.


Thanks soo much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!

My Girlz.

Hello and good morning...


Welcome! This is Challenge #18 for Craft Hoarders Anonymous ChallengeBlog ! 
Challenge#18:Layer it up!!!

One good way to use your hoard is to use lots of it all at once! So, let's see those layers! We need to see at least THREE layers on your project! (Ink, paint, embossing, and mixed media products do count as layers!) Drag out all of that hoarded paper or those embossing folders that are in the back of the drawer. Use those stamps, dies, and punches! Show us the layers!



I layered my background texture. First with gesso, then with misting on a mask. Then I used a dot stamp, and stamped on top of it.


 I also made my own embellies with punched metal- black and turquoise and then a sequin on the top layer:



I used a pink metal sheet to layer my papers underneath and on top of here:


One of the sponsors is from Add a Little Dazzle. This was the metal sheets that I used for my layers and my embellies...



Challenge Rules are HERE. Make sure to link your project using the Link Tool on the Craft HoardersAnonymous Challenge Blog.
