We Are Family

While scrappin' vacation photos, I noticed that lots of them had a theme....of well, it looked like we mostly like each other (Imagine that....when 18 people go on vacation together!) I started by making the collage of 2 x 2 photos on an 8x8 piece of cardstock....added some 2 x 2 decorative squares for interest and framed it all with knotted ended ribbon which I wove over the pictures. Added some silver buttons as I was trying to put silver to make the layout cohesivie. Everything else on here is just cut by hand......fron 1 piece of doublesided cardstock! Added ribbon, buttons, and silver elements. Title is Opposites Attract and chipboard 9from Target).

Practical Scrappers

Practical Scrappers has a contest this week where you are supposed to use at least 3 stickers. I love this layout of my family in the Bahamas. The title is stickers........the ocean is torn cardstock.......the sand is layered sandpaper. I hand cut and pieced the palm tree out of fun foam using a coloring book page pattern. Used black sharpie to add details. Added a sand castle sticker...a little fish with bubbles (stickers), and some real and sticker sea shells.

Emme Grace turned two this month and celebrated with a ladybug picnic. Too cute! Here is the layout of her birthday and some pictures of her delightful ladybug food.

Used a sketch from Scrapbooks, Etc. Ladybugs are Doodlecharms, cut at 1", 1 1/2", and 2". Added crystals for eyes and spots........little thread antennae. Title is Remarks stickers, chipboard for the Target $1 bin, and "2" is Alphalicious cut at 4 1/2" on regular and shadow....attached with pop dots. I used felt and paper flowers and attached buttons to the center.
