Pink Paislee "Butterfly Garden"

Hello scrapping friends!

It's been crazy busy in my world and I feel like I haven't worked on anything lately! I just finished up this lo last night using the new Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden line. One of my pics of my grandson at 2 weeks old. I really love all the pics I have to work with! All pics were done by my very talented friend Erin Romans.

I know I've used my brick stamp in lots of lo's since I bought it, but it just adds so much to the background. I LOVE this stamp!! I inked my Dusty Attic chippies with Meadow Alcohol Ink and topped it with some Rock Candy.

Here are a few more close ups..

Well off to work! Thanks for stopping by and be creative this weekend!! Till next time..Happy Scrappin!

Round Robin Reveal @ Swirlydoos!

Ten Little Fingers
Ten Little Toes
The cutest of smiles
And little button nose..

Hi Scrappers!

That's pretty much the basis of this lo. This week it was my turn for the Round Robin Challenge at Swirlydoos. I got to follow the most talented Swirly sister Rae, so was super uber excited to do so!!
Technically we're not supposed to post our lo's until Friday, but....

This was also made for Swirly's Chipboard Palozza contest. The pull out tag has the Ten Little Fingers poem on it with the date of the picture. This pic is my son holding his new boy's feet. I love this photo. My friend Erin Romans has her own photography studio and did a fabulous series of pictures of my new Grandson..they're amazing pics and I'm having fun scrapping them. Here are some close ups..

I also did some other lo's using Swirlydoos April Kit, Bella Volo. This one is totally inspired by Lisa Gregory. I used her Savage Beauties flower tutorial and Scrabble Tile Letters tutorial. She is totally amazing!!

This one I did for a challenge at Bella Creations.

Well thanks for stopping by!!
I have lots more Bo Bunny paper and awesome photos to till next time, Happy Scrappin!!

Two New Layouts-Swirlydoos April Kit

Hello scrapping friends!!

I've been working with the new April kit from Swirlydoos. It is so packed with the new Bo Bunny Gabrielle line!! This first layout is actually inspired by the one who is named after this wonderful line, and I believe she helped design it as well, Gabrielle Pollacco. I took my new grandson to have some professional pictures done by a wonderful photographer and friend, Erin Romans, and so of course after I got the prints, I had to start scrapping! I used Lisa Gregory's Scrabble Letter Tutorial for the Scrabble tile letter. I LOVE those tiles!!

This next lo is one of my daughter taking a break during her riding lessons when she was 4.

Thank you all for stopping by!!! Till next time, Happy Scrappin!!

Dance LO and Mini Album

I really love the new Swirlydoos kit, Bella Volo. The new Gabrielle line from Bo Bunny is totally fab!! I did this layout for the butterfly challenge at Swirlydoos, and also made a mini album for my new grandson's pictures.

I used Martha Stewart's Garden Gate punch on the top and bottom, kinda messed up on one corner, but ah well.

The mini album;

Thanks for stopping by!! Till next time, Happy Scrappin!
