the sun is out!

ahhh! it's a beautiful day! the snow is melting with the sun shining brightly! here is a layout that was inspired by My Scraps & More #59:

I searched around in my stash and came up with 2 older papers from Daisy D's. Remember them?? The chevron arrows are hand stitched using the Amy Tangerine template and I stamped the brackets. The blue studded snowflake stickers are from Imaginisce for Archiver's. A simple page really! Thanks for stopping by! Blessings!

a snowflake frenzy of lights!

this next layout was inspired by a sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap:

here is what I came up with:

the bottom 1/3 of the page is misc. snowflakes from Queen & Co. to a hand stitched one to silver brads, lots of  clear rhinestones and such! The paper is American Crafts "Peppermint Factory" and the rest are misc. cardstock. Here are a few close-ups:

this layout also works for the 1-2-3 Get Scrappy challenge for this month:
I did lots of bling, the color blue and snowflakes!

this was fun! hope everyone is having a great week! blessing my scrappy friends!

a scrappy snow day!

so school is cancelled for today and husband is at home too! me? I'm just scrapping away! I was inspired and created this next layout from a sketch I found at Stuck?!:

I turned the sketch on its side and changed up some of the elements to fit my own style:

I used My Mind's Eye for the page and some Heidi Swapp plus misc. cardstock for the layers. I really am enjoying popping up elements so the layout has texture and depth:

my go-to trend is still banners!! thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave some love! blessings!

2 more from weekend crop!

for a trip to the Science Center I opted to create a two page layout:

here are the two together:

I so enjoy lots of photos on one page! I have a few more pages to finish up from the crop and then I'll be back!

10" of snow today!

we have had a blizzard of snow today! 10" ! no school tomorrow that's for sure! so today I was able to finish a couple of layouts from a crop I went to this past Friday and Saturday...Friday we cropped from 5-12 p.m. and Saturday from 9-8 p.m.! I left at 4 on Saturday so I wouldn't miss the NFL playoff games! I do have priorities you know!
Here's a layout I created using an older sketch from Stuck?:
 and here's the layout:

the paper is from 3 bugs in a rug, Trendsetter from Fancy Pants and some misc. cardstock. The pics are of my guys acting goofy!
