whole lotta scrapin' goin' on.


i posted a question on willow traders about what people did to use up their kits and such. it inspired me to just scrap! and to not be afraid to throw out the odds and ins out and make room for the new. i have subbed with work in progress for three months now, and last month went a little over board and got the main kit, the project kit, and the add-on. i am glad i did. even though all that product can be a bit overwhelming to begin with, my need to create finally took over and i burned the midnight oil one night and just scrapped the night away. here are a few of the results.
titled: seriously. this is a layout describing my woes about the world's longest winter here in colorado. patterned paper is websters page. great date tag is from livingroomfloor over on etsy. used making memories mini alphas-love those. a very simple layout. i don't usually use a whole sheet of patterned paper for a background, but this one lended itself to such. now if only winter would really go away.
titled: get real. this was in response to an ali e challenge about getting real. this layout still did not fully capture it for me, but it was about being real about what you are doing right now. and this was just how it all looked at that moment in time. a busy morning, and busy desk, a busy life.
p/p: sei dill blossom from wip main kit...sweet, sweet paper. loved the noteworthy tag from etsy (not sure where specifically). the embellies include clear buttons (stampin up), ribbon, felt flower (stampin up), silver brad, and mini coaster (sei).
this layout is more than precious to me. my sister and i decided to go see my grandma on a whim and it was exactly a week before she passed away. i am so happy to have these photos of my sister, cousins, and my grandma avery.
the layout was inspired by the cover of the june ck.
p/p: i think all from websters page. chipboard label holder: heidi swapp. rub-ons: cosmo cricket (wip kit). chipboard circle: kotm ali edwards.

this layout was just fun. very much out of my normal zone. this is an answer to a challenge of janelle richmonds. my girlfriends and i were just in hilton head. this is actually tybee island. a fun day. p/p: 7gypsies+scenic route. chipboard letters: cosmo cricket. die-cut bracket: sei. chipboard heart: jenni bowlin. butterfly punch: martha stewart. hung on the hanger from wip may add-onkit bymelissa frances.

sweet josh. my cousins youngest. he kept hiding from me and would not let me take a good pic. cute! p/p: sei dill blossoms+scenic route. c/s: bazzill+stampin up. stickers: 7gypsies
this is a funny story of my mom and my cousin's oldest son. .
