Some more work to share!

Before I begin, I would just like to give a shout out to Laurie! It's been a tough week for her and I wanted to scream LUVS YA, and MMMMMMWWWWWWWAAAAAAAA to put a smile on her face!

So.. I have been scrapping and it feels great! I am way ahead of my goals so far, and I have to give credit to Lifetime Moments Winter Scrapfest! I have been doing their summer and winter scrapfests for a couple of years, and this is the best start I have ever had...

So without further ado!

MY 1 BOY

So this 12x12 LO was based on an AD inspiration. I loved all the journaling space and since I am not one to journal, I thought this would force me a bit. I have had this baby pic of Cody for ages, and have always wanted to scrap it.. why not tell a story while I was at it! LOL

WHY YOU MAKE ME SMILE

I added the close ups just for Steph... LOL So this is a 12x12 of Alexa and I... I love the bright juicy feel to it,and it's been a bit since I have done such a vibrant LO... at least IRL it is VERY vibrant! LOL The inspiration was to journal in bullet format.. 10 bullets. It also fits another challenge to mix fonts in the title! Inspired by Pencil Lines Sketch #91 composed by Janine Boyd and Anna Bowkis!

I am so proud of this Mini album cuz it's the first one I have ever done that is completely handmade. I took some cardstock and cut them, glued them back to back, took the Heidi Swapp edge distress tool and went to town. Then spritz heavily with the gold glimmer mist.. SO COOL! I them used the BG Dec kit, some things from my stash and voila. These were all pics that I had taken previous to scrapping.. so they were more everyday keepsakes. I have always wanted to scrap them although most of them are pretty crummy! LOL So here was the place for them... my precious and mine family! LOL

So today I am off of work, just cuz I could take it! I am gonna chill, read some bogs, and of course scrap! Got my tunes on for now, but later will enjoy Season 1 of Medium, my java and when my family gets home... my family!

HAVE A GOOD ONE!

MMMMMMMMMMMMMWWWWWWWWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
