I am doing a dance, I am soooo happy!!! I have the whole weekend off, which is a very good thing because I didn't sew on Benny's costume at all last night. I definitely have my work cut out for me! I have a full day of school today and then I am off. I will head to the scrapbook store and Michaels right after school then rush home and get busy!! I have to make the Tarzan costume, a chicken costume, a lifeguard costume (Baywatch style), make sure he has what he needs for his Garth Costume, and his Don Johnson-Miami Vice costume. I feel like I am missing something-I hope not!! I am going to have to scrap in there somewhere too!! It is going to be a creative weekend for sure!!
Some awesome news!!! The Beautiful Girls layouts I did for the Little Red Scrapbook February kit was chosen as the banner of the week at the Inspire Me Blog. You can see it here.
I am extra excited about it because it is one of my favorite layouts ever!! Whoo hoo!!
It took me a couple of days to get my CPS card done for this week. I don't know why I had scrapper's block with this one, but I am finally happy with the results.
I used my Studio Calico kit including Making Memories Tags and Paper, K & Co. Cardstock Ephemera, K & Co. Funky Striped Glitter Patterned Paper, Melissa Frances Frame, Kaiser Kraft Pearls, and Stampin Up! ribbon.
Just for Fun
I also did a couple of layouts just for fun!! I used all my favorite Graphic 45 Papers in this one.
This beautiful picture is of my Grandmother. I am so glad I found this picture. It just makes me happy!! I used papers from the Times Nouveau Collection as well as the Botanicabella Collection. I cut the vine out with my Cricut and I used some Prima Florals, jewels and ribbon, some Michaels Ribbon and lace, and some Metals from Tim Holtz. Below are some close-ups
The next project is a little wall hanging that I did with a picture I photoshopped of my mom. I think I will give this project to my sister for her birthday. It was another theraputic layout as I am still working out my feelings from my mom's passing.
I used the G45 Playtimes Past line and I really like how it turned out. The quote states: God gave us memories that we might have roses in December (Barrie). You can see in the picture below that I used some vintage glass glitter around the edges. I also used some lace and ribbon from Michael's and Making Memories alphas. I hope she likes it!!
Thank you for taking a peek at my heart today.
I hope you have a fabulous weekend!!
Oh and don't forget to stay tuned for a big surprise over at Scrapping the Music!!!
