Crazy n' Cute!

This weeks sketch over at Let's Scrap (www.letsscrap.ning.com) was so much fun to work with (and it cute!), the submissions so far are fantastic, a whole lotta inspiration going on!



This was my initial submission, but it just didn't quite feel finished . . .



So I added some more "craziness" to it! It all about "Crazy Hair Day" so it should be a crazy layout, right?!



Happy Scrappin'!

We Need Votes!!

I am asking a big favour from anyone reading . . . my 6yo DD is in a "Cutest Kid" photo contest right now, for the Facebook Fan Favourite, and she is neck and neck with one other cutie who is proving hard to beat! We need all the votes we can get so I'm exhausting all my resources to help out my little girl!!
If you have a Facebook account and wouldn't mind, could you log onto Photo Express Foto Source page, "like" the page, then look for the below photo of my DD and "Like" to vote for her. THANK YOU a million times over! I'll be sure to post again WHEN she wins ;-)

Dandelion Delight!

Well I am kinda slacking again at posting, aren't I?! Been a little busy around here, but a good busy :-) Been doing alot of scrappin' just haven't been able to get it all posted here, buuuuttt here is the latest sketch from Let's Scrap and my take on it:

Sketch by Cheri O'Neil:





I added a 6"x12" Flip Flap page protector from Close To My Heart on the right hand layout, which let me include 6 more photos! The Flip Flap just adheres to the outside of my page protector so you are able to open and close it while in the album.



These flowers have quickly become one of my favourites to make, they are so super simple! These ones I made by punching out five 2" scallops from patterned paper, crumpling them each into a ball then flattening them out again, layering them one on top of each other, sticking a brad thru the center and then one layer at a time crumpling/squishing the "petal" into the center until you have your desired look :-) Go on, give it a try and have fun!



I finally buckled and bought the Martha Stewart butterfly punch I've been eyeing for ages, so had to add them to the layout too!
My DD was totally posing for these photos too - she watches America's Next Top Model waaaaayyy too much!



Thanks for looking and
Happy Scrappin'!!
