Sweet 16 Layout

My beautiful daughter turned 16.  Where has the time gone?  Her favorite colors right now are this teal blue, black and white so I made decorations for her party in these colors and followed suite with the same colors on her birthday layout.  So much fun!  Love this sweet girl!

Eek Pumpkin Layout

Love these cute little pumpkins from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.  If you look close, the right picture also has one of these faces cut on vinyl and stuck on a pumpkin.  Now the layout, pictures, and pumpkin all match!  LOL.

Toadally Fun At the Lake Layout

Some layouts are actually more fun to put together than others.  This one was fun.  I found a layout that I loved on Out on a Limb that used the 2 tone green flowers.  For some reason, I really like the look of then in green.  So I started digging through my Miss Kate Cuttables files and found that I had the file Uniquely You and these little flowers were in it.  So I set off to create my own layout using them.  I had made this little frog 3 years ago or so ago for Valentine's Day bookmarks for my kids and so I found him and recut him and made a title to go with it.  I love how this font turned out.  So cute.  The At the Lake title and sun are a Miss Kate Cuttables file that I had left over from another layout.  Overall this was a fun layout to do and I have a ton of these flowers and frogs left over for something else too!   Yeah. summer with flowers linky challenge back to nature anything goes

Let's Ride Layout

Our Grandma would have turned 98 this year.  Sadly she passed 3 weeks before her birthday.  These pictures were taken the summer before her 96th birthday.  She has a hard time getting out and about anymore and so we decided to take her for a nice scenic ride.  I'm so glad we went as a trip like this wasn't really possible for her anymore.  We have tried over the years to grab her for a day and take her out and about.  It's always been nice.  It turned out to be a such a nice day.  We even made a pit stop and were able to get huckleberry ice cream along the way home.  She really had a nice time as she doesn't get out much and we enjoyed spending our day as a family with her.  We love and miss you Grandma! use wheels anything goes let's celebrate Grandmas! 1 title, 2 different borders, and 3 cars anything goes

Howdy Shooting Layouts my daughter was given a great big stuffed dog from a former boyfriend.  One day she decided it would be fun to use him for target practice.  Her Dad was thrilled as this was a bad situation all the way around.  So out we went for a shooting party.  Her uncle came over and we all went out to shoot.  I thought it a great time to play with my camera and wasn't disappointed as I caught several shots of stuffing flying everywhere.   That's my kind of shooting.  I did, however, pick up a gun and shoot a couple times with them.  LOL.  Anyway, these are the layouts that I created for my photos.  I have been doing a lot of my project life style of scrapbooking mixed with a front page.  I find it fun to still create the fun first page and quickly document the additional photos this way.   The best of both worlds!  Aren't these little cowgirls cute?  I recently won 3 files from Precious Piecings and this is one I chose because I knew I had these pictures and she would be cute on them.    The guns, fence, and barbed wire are cuts that I got somewhere but have no idea where anymore.  Perfect for this layout too! AG cowgirl Family Life

Ladybug Box

Here is another set that I got from My Scrap Chick.  I made a couple of these.  This is the ladybug trio set.  It comes with a box, card, and treat topper.  I thought I would give one of these to my secret sister at the retreat filled with goodies.  Isn't it cute.  I am going to give her the card that goes with it also.  Now....what to put in it for her.....  Love how simple it was to put together but how cute it turned out!  That my dear, is a good project!  Simple and cute! AG AG AG AG AG keep it simple
