The Simple Life

From Simple Story

I was using there Sunshine & Happiness
which tell the story on these photos.

My granddaughter love the sunshine 
and she always happy.

This was Mila first time at the beach
on their family camping trip.
She enjoy playing in the water and 
taking pictures with her family.
This the only girl with 4 big brothers.
She one lucky girl.

I did one photo at 5x7 and the rest were
4x6 photos. Some I left at 4x6 and other
I cutdown.


I got this line from the Flavor of the Month Kit
from The ScrapRoom .
Come and join the group and
you can get the recipe for this layout
along with 3 other recipes for the other paper lines.

I use a cream corrugated paper not
found in the kit to add some dimension 
to this card.

Life Better in.......

.....Flip Flop

This line from Carta Bella is a very beach line
but I was out of my beach photo.
So I was think of what I could use
and then I remembered that we 
had taken photos of 
Flip Flop and Seahorse balloons
 from the Balloon Festival in 
Albuquerque, New Mexico last October.

So "Life is better in Flip Flop"
even in a balloon.

I got Carta Bella " Beach Day" from
The Double Shot kit
From the ScrapRoom.

Game Time

Have some fun and really think out of the box on this one.
Cut yourself a large circle out on your back ground paper 
and ink the inside edge of the circle with a fun color.
I also so cut two more small circles to add to the layout.
I placed one of the circles under the lager cut out circle 
just peeking out half way then I place a second pattern 
paper under both of them. Thus creating dimension on 
the page.

My daughter and granddaughter love playing the game
in Downtown Disney on the Boardwalk.
They are each orthers best friends. 

This line from Fancy Pants -Millie and June
was perfect for this picture for one reason 
is my granddaughter love pink and it not
100% Disney which is fun.

I got this line in my Double Shot Kit from
The ScrapRoom

Downtown Disney

Downtown Disney

For this layout I used 
Simple Story - Bloom & Grow 
from the The ScrapRoom 
for somethings different for 
my Disney layout.
This line still had a touch of Disney 
with it red with white dots.
I add some white mist by 
splattering it on the blue card 
stock background. 

Downtown Disney is also known
as the Boardwalk that were
the woodgrain paper plays off
the boardwalk.
My granddaughter had a lot of
fun running around the downtown
and so did I.

June's Cards

June's Cards

I had a lot a fun making these cards.
I've been trying to make a card
after very layout that I complete
using my scraps.

Americans Crafts "Better Together "
When I'm make my cards from
my scraps I sometimes find even the
smallest scraps can be used on my cards.
As you can see.

Photoplay "Summer Daydreams"
I want to bring something back that
I haven't used in a long time on my pages.
"Mash" it was very hot about 15 years ago.
And if you are anything like me you
have some still hanging around your craft room.
I've been try to use some my old thing
with my new items.

My Mind's Eye "By The Sea"
I used the same back ground stamp
on this card as I used on my layout.
I also used the same blue ink to stamp the
back ground that I use to ink the edges
that help to pull it all together.

Deep Sea Fishing

Deep Sea Fishing

My Mind's Eye "By The Sea" 
Today is the second half of the Double Shot Kit.

This line was great for the photo of my 
husband do Deep Sea Fishing in Hawaii.

As might see I use the back
Side of most of the paper collection.
I did a little bit of stamp on the back
ground. Most of the time I ink my edges 
with a brown but for this layout I decide to
Ink them a blue to a little fun.
I do enjoy doing fussy cutting to my the 
waves out of the pattern paper for
this page.

I hope you enjoy this layout and it help 
to think out of the box.

How Sweet

How Sweet It Is

Ella is one of the sweetest girl around
on her first day of school.

I use the sketch from The ScrapRoom 
To inspire my layout.
And I also used American Crafts Paper
"Better Together " for my layout
that I got from The ScrapRoom 
Double Shot Kit.

As you can see I rotated the sketch and I also did not
do the small round photo.
You don't always have to do the sketch exactly
you can rotate it, add or remove a item from the sketch.
But the most important thing to remember is 
to have FUN!

Build, Stomp, & Smash

Build, Stomp, and Smash
That is what my granddaughter did to her very first
sand castle. We took a day to go to the beach on 
our Disney World  advantage.
She was not to sure of the ocean at first
but after a bit you couldn't keep her out.

You know some time when you don't have enough letters to
do your titles you my want to mix it up
like I did for this layout. To make
my title stand out I use large letters to make
the point of my title. Then is I used smaller
letter and mixed up the colors.
Well I hope maybe next time you are short letters to 
a title you might mix it up like I did.

I used Photo Play Summer Daydreams collection 
That I got from The ScrapRoom Flavors of the Month Kit.

The Flavor of the Month Kit from 
The ScrapRoom.

Echo Park 
Pettticoats & Pinstripes 
From my Double Shot kit 
from The ScrapRoom 

I fell in love with this bird at the
Bellagio's garden. To me some birds
are from heaven. Sent to us to brighten up our day.

I use my Lucky 8 punch from WeR to
make my half round circle doily. And as
you can tell I like to fussy cut thing out.

They may not say a lot but 
they are very LOUD in there show.

Fun with twine

Fun with Twine.....

Twine is now a big thing to be used I on our layouts.
I mixed the twine with some of my wood pieces by 
wrapping it around the wood hearts. You could even 
use chipboard pieces to wrap.

Taste of color challenge
