Lots of Little Andrews

Bad news ... I no longer have my fabulous new DSLR camera. Less than two months after purchasing it, it was having some major issues and we had to send it away to be fixed under warranty. They told me it would take 6-8 weeks! ACK!

It's a big bummer, but I'm praying that they figure out what was wrong and send it back as good as new!

Now I can focus on scrapping all of those pictures I already have :)

Here's a double layout:
Lots and lots of little Andrews :)

Pictures were taken at the park in early April, just as he was starting to walk pretty well. See his little stance and waddle :) I love it! I threw in some adorable ones of Justin and Samantha from the same day.

I know it's a bit odd, but I like it and I tried to keep the sizes in a consistent perspective (except I know that the ones of Justin and Samantha should be switched).

So, do you like it?

You & Me - Mother's Day Layout

Well, my husband took this photo of me and the kids sitting on the couch on Mother's Day. I decided to do something wild and crazy ... and this is what I came up with:

I don't like the way my knees are cut off, but there's not much I can do about that. So ... you'll have to forgive that. And notice the little treat in the window :)

I used Createwings Designs Birthday Dreams kit. It has a ton of whimsical and very graphic artsy stuff. Very cool, but hard to use. I'm still trying to figure it out.

My husband thinks the chair made out of grass is a riot :)

I hope you like it!

My Three Crazy Sisters and Me

Are you ready for another Sisters layout? Well, here you go :)

The title says 'My Three Crazy Sisters and Me' but most people who see it ignore the smaller type and go, "But, there's four of you?!..." Maybe I should change it to just, 'Four Crazy Sisters,' because we're all a bit crazy :)

I used:
Paper and Elements from Kitty Designs The Garden Poetry
Block Alpha from Kitty Designs
Colorful Alpha (crazy) from Createwings Designs

I hope you like it!

Mini Album Slideshow - June GGS

Hello all!

We're going to do an experiment today ... a slideshow! Instead of posting a ton of pictures of my project, I made a slideshow ... please tell me if you like this way of viewing better or worse than the other :)

And for those of you who aren't succeeding in watching the slideshow, here are the pictures:

It's for my Girls Gone Scrappy kit club ... I was invited to join last month and it's kind of exciting! You make a mini-album to swap each month and you also get a completely different kit to play with that month as well :)
Marion, from A Piece of Craft (great videos) and Blue Moon Scrapbooking is running it, and if you know her, you know it's cool :)
They're now taking open enrollment, so if it sounds like something you'd like to do, head on over here and check it out!

So, this is my album for June ... I'm mailing it off today :)
I used Basic Grey Sublime. It's older, but I have a huge, huge stash of it. I made my own chipboard pages, used some file folders and bound it all together with my NEW bind-it-all! The chipboard is American Crafts Thickers and the flowers are from Heidi Swapp. Everything else is Basic Grey or K&Co. made to match!

I hope you like it!
