Gingerbread Men!

Haven't had time for layouts, although I wish I did. Been too busy making cards. But this set of pictures my sister took was tuggin' at brain, and I just had to scrap them.

Used JoAnn Fabrics Peppermint Forest for the papers and DCWV solid cardstock. Used the Martha Stewart snowflake and Joy punch and my new Purple Cow paper trimmer to get wavy edges on everything. Added little gingerbread men cut on Blackout off of From My Kitchen.....enhanced with various buttons, sharpies, ink, and buttons. A couple of them have a MS bow attached. Added some blingy rhinestones to the snowflakes. Title is Thickers....white felt that I colored with pink Studio G ink....and the MEN is from a Target $1 set of chipboard. Used Wright's white rick rack to tie everything together. I love when you can use so many pictures on a layout.

Butter Beer!

We got to visit Orlando last month....mainly to see the new Harry Potter World at Islands of Adventure, Universal Florida. They serve ButterBeer there....a butterscotch/cool whip concoction that is wonderful! These are my kids drinking it.....sloppily I might add!!
I used a cut out piece of cardstock from Cloud 9 with stars and moons over inked white cardstock. Added some teal and brown doublesided paper (just had one piece laying around...don't even know who it is by) trimmed with some teal rick rack. Added an interesting piece of paper with gold/pewter elements I got in a scraps trade with a friend and lettering is gold foiled chipboard. The Butter Beer is From My Kitchen, salt and pepper shakers cut on shadow, tops removed....embossed with dots folder and glazed with gold glitter glaze. The swirl is from the same cartridge, ice cream soda, embossed with swirls, and covered with clear glitter glaze. Stars are from George, on another piece of scrap paper. Wrapped them in twine and added a button or two......pop dotted them.

Inspiration for this layout was from the Sketch Friday at Practical Scrappers this week. Wonderful creation by Ann-Katrin!

Feed Me!

We just returned from a wonderful trip to Busch Gardens Tampa where the hightlight was feeding a giraffe. We had so much fun! My little giraffe on this layout is handpieced from a My ScrapChick pattern. Printed it - colored with pencils and gamsol - cut and put it together. Added some fibers for the mane. Paper is DCWV. Lettering is Pooh Font (Marker), and it's embossed with the Seeing Spots folder. Leaf border at the bottom is from Life's a Beach. The sketch is this week's fun one at Sketches in Thyme....and this layout works for Frosted Designs Circle of Rick Rack challenge too.
