A couple new scrapbook layouts to share




A few weeks after we got married, we received a letter from the office of the President congratulating us. I was very excited, as this was going to make an awesome addition to the scrapbook. LOL.

Paper is from Rusty Pickle, Sticker letters from Wordsworth (old stock), the tag is by ME!, the Giant chipboard letter C is from Colorbok. This is actually a really good deal. You get 26 sheets of chipboard letters for around $10. There are a TON of letters in there.





I made silver studs by heating up a regular, full sized, gold brad with my heat gun, and then dipped it in embossing powder twice, reheating, and then letting cool before I set it down.


I found this paper first, and only bought one sheet and then after I got home, I couldn't decide how to make it into a 2 page layout, the only thing that kept coming to mind, was to blow up the second pic to full 12 x 12. This one has been a month in the making, because I had a 12 x 18 made in china and shipped over (cheapest prices). I now also have a 12 x 6 of another image for another page.

Paper: is from creative imaginations and I can't find it online anywhere. The best I can find is the other items in this line on ebay. There is fishing, golfing, surfing, etc. I guess it's based on a t-shirt line?? The sticker letters are OLD SCHOOL. Think Liz something from EK Success like 7 years ago. Use what you have in your stash or your cricut. "Lead the way" and "Established" stickers are from Autumn Leaves.

Project 365

*that just happened*

Recent things to note:

*Cheyenne started screaming at 11 p.m. A really big spider ran across the ceiling, normally not a big deal, but she's on the top bunk, with her face about a foot from the ceiling. She piled out of bed. I tried to squish it, and it fell and ran into sleepy Tanner's pillowcase. He now resides outside where this tramatic experience will surely make him vengeful for human blood.

*My computer is fixed. I might have said that. It rocks the awesome sauce except now I'm kinda missing that fast new computer. My goal is to get the new one all set up for what I want to do, so I can start working on it. I have seen the light, and the light is good.

*Vote for Adam! (now that voting is almost over)

I totally get why my mom had the hots for Elvis now. Adam is what Elvis would be if he were a 25 year old today. And I'm fairly confident he's not interested in a 29 year old *cough* housewife blogger from Missouri. Both Gene and I said he would have made a good Edward Cullen in Twilight. (not that I'm a twilight fan)

*The robins are all grown and gone. I have a ton of cool pictures. I'll update that in the next day or so in one final post. I get it, you're sick of bird pics. LOL.

*Mack (my cat) hates children. Small female children in particular. He has spent the past 3 days sleeping in the master bathtub. Today, I coaxed him out and everyone petted him several times. Then he hissed at them and went back to the bathtub. Hey, it's progress.

*10 min after the first spider. Cheyenne saw a much smaller one on the bathroom ceiling. I'm fairly confident she won't sleep at all tonight.

Scrapbook page - Family Legacy

I've not shared a page for a while, I've had so much other stuff to do. But I sat down and worked on this one a couple days, I scraplifted from the latest Scrapbooks Etc Mag.

This is my grandmother, grandfather and great-aunt. All of them are gone now. This picture was taken around 20 years ago or so.

I actually made the page first, and then dug through some photos to find the photo I wanted to put on the page. Sometimes I do that as it makes me work faster. I worry less about the image, and more on the design. The photos tend to slow me down. Then I just find something to fit the space.

Paper is from My Mind's Eye stack, the cardstock is bazzill, the little pearl beads are from kaiser scrapbooks, keys and "lock" are grungeboard from tim holtz that I sprayed with glimmer mist (first time I've used it... only 30 more times and I can justify the price! lol), flourish stamps from autumn leaves, and the sticker letters are from K & Company
