A Scrappin' fool!!!!

Well I guess the new year rolled my mojo back home. Maybe she missed me. Maybe she couldn't find anywhere else to settle. None the less she is back with me and I'm happy. :) Since I've had so many done, I will be doing post with 3 layouts at a time since I want to be able to tell ya a little about each one without boring you to pieces with a 100 mile long blog. One of the layouts I did was of my daughter on her first birthday. (by the way she will be turning 2 on the 17th of this month!!! ) Anyway, she was such a diva that day, not smashing her smash cake, not wanting to eat her cake (except the flowers) and crying because she didn't want that silly looking princess hat on her head!!! I didn't do to much on this page. The cake paper I used is Heidi Swapp. I love her papers. So pastel-y looking. Anyway, I used a Prima Flower and some Say it in Crystals bling. The small roses are Recollections and I cannot for the life of me remember who the letters were by. This was a pretty simple, straight forward page. But I like the way it turned out.

This next LO is, again, my daughter at the beach. I love this picture because as we were sitting playing in the sand, my son said something and my daughter whipped around and smiled at him. I just so happened to have my camera trained on her anyway trying to get a good profile shot of her. I used my Martha Stewart shell punch. That's what I call it anyway, not sure of what the true name is. The small roses again are Recollections. The bigger flowers are Prima. The title I used out of Tim Holtz grungeboard and then used my alcohol ink with the silver additive to color them. The shell border came from my stash. I also used some bling.
A Grandmother's Love. A special LO to me. My MIL was in town for the month of August to visit with us and the kids. She had moved back to her hometown, which is over 1000 miles away, a little over a year ago. While she was in town she suggested us getting pictures made. So I called my photographer and got us an appointment. This shot is precious to both her and I. This LO I actually made for my MIL. I mailed it to her and she called crying telling me how much she loved it. She is going to hang it on her wall. :)

This is the first LO I ever did that I did water distressing on. I actually loved the process and the result of it. The red flower in the upper right corner is a flower that I made. I put the tutorial on my blog several months ago. I edited the photo to fade the sides in and add the word LOVE on it. Then I placed a clear overlay frame over top it. The green flower is Prima and the two smaller flowers I made. I also used some bling and I believe that butterfly is Prima too.

As always, I appreciate all comments and I truly thank you for taking the time to look and read my blog. I really does mean the world to me. Even though I can't always update it on time. With 2 small kids and many many many projects and now sports practices I hope you understand. :) Thanks again!!!!
