    Its a Gun Show

    I have a layout for you today… and my son is bringing you the GUN SHOW. He thinks he has the worlds biggest muscles and shows them off at the drop of a dime.  Boys. I created this layout (besides this pic makes me LOL) for the new Issue over at Paper Issues, The World is a Circle. I’m not a world traveler (*sob*) so I played up the circle part with a lot of circular embellies. Besides a ton of papers, stickers and embellies from my horde, I used 2 Some Odd Girl stamps in my layout. One is obvious, the just be you seal from the Be You…

    9, a birthday scrapbook layout

    Last weekend my oldest turned 9 and came 1 step closer to making me feel super old. When I can say she’s a decade old… I might go buy a cane. Lucky for me though she’s really good about letting me take her picture, who knows how long that will last? She’s becoming a beautiful young lady and this pic really captures it for me. I was inspired and had to scrap it right away. I have a mix and match of Freckled Fawn, Maya Road, American Crafts, October Afternoon, Crate, Glitz, Simple Stories, Sassafras and probably more in here that I’m forgetting.  Now that the last bit of my…

    Pocketful of Sunshine @ Paper Issues

    Happy Monday! Its a brand new week and a brand new theme at Paper Issues! This time the theme for our Linky Party is a “Pocket Full of Sunshine” and its sponsored by the lovely Martha from Panda Eight Designs. Martha creates some awesome flair, like the one I used on my LO so you’ll definitely want to be entered this time around. For my LO I knew I wanted to use this pic and flair together and the idea of the black spray to extend the pic worked really well! I’ve been VERY short on Mojo lately so it didn’t turn out in the end quite as well as…

    Today is a Shiney & New Issue over at Paper Issues! See what I did there?  To go along with the Shiney & New theme there is also a fun inspirational sketch. I followed the sketch but its not mandatory.  I created this LO using a Shiney picture of my kiddos in the leaves this fall then a ton of October Afternoon’s Autumn Crisp line. I might have stretched the theme with my pic but eh, I like it.  If you have a new or old project that fits the theme or want to be inspired by the sketch like I was hop over and link up! You can win…

    Beach Love

    its cold, its snowing. So I’m doing a little bit of reliving summer with this LO of my chick at the beach. Its my favorite place to be, any time of the year except winter (though it is pretty), and its hers too.  I’ve gone there just when I’ve had a bad day or a day with the fam.  I have some Pink Paisley, Crate, Carta Bella, Sassafras, Chic Tags, Fancy Pants and Elle’s going on in this LO.  I’m entering this into the Paper Issues My Happy Place Issue going on now. You can link up any project new or old that fits the theme too and be entered…

    Best of Friends

    my littles are always hugging and I can’t stop taking pics of it! That they love each other this much is something I’m most grateful for. I love my brothers (most of the time heh) but I don’t ever remember us being huggy. I like hugs damn it!  This LO is featuring one of the new Cutfiles today up at Some Odd Girl. Its a set of 3 “Arrow Cards” and I used 1 of them, in the brown woodgrain paper, like an embellie on this.   Cut Files are a semi new thing over in my shop, I think our first came out in May. I’d love to hear…

    Grateful for You

    There’s a new Issue over at the Paper Issues blog, its Grateful for You.  What a perfect theme for this time of year!    I HAD to use this pic of my kids for this theme. Just shy of 2 years older than her younger brother, my daughter totally mothers him… and he LOVES it. He relishes being the baby and everyone thinking he’s just super cute (he is though dang him). I’m attempting to get my scrap mojo back on the groove too. I’m switching it up to 8.5″ x 11″ so my albums fit on the shelf and I gots to say, I’m super in love with this…

    My Buddy

    Happy Monday! I finally got a chance to get crafty this weekend, my Kanvess pics were here and Paper Issues’ new linky comes with a sketch so BAM… crafty trifecta!  I was digging the repetition of shapes as I made this apparently lol. I cut the dark blue circle-hearts, arrows, and the title out with my Silhouette, the others were with my Cuttlebug. Papers and embellies from Studio Calico, Dear Lizzy, October Afternoon, the Twinery and Fancy Pants. If you want to join in with this linky you have almost 2 weeks to do so, just hop on over to see what the Paper Issues girls did and get inspired!…
