Big Comfy Chair

We had a delightful time at the Speed Scrap a few days ago. Mel did it in the chat room as well, so it was nice to have a little company (and gardening advice) while I worked.

I love Speed Scraps because you actually get a layout done. Sometimes life gets in the way and you can't make it at the right time, or you just plain forget! But ... I'm so happy I was able to do this one!

Because it was a one photo layout, I chose this one of my kids the day we got our new leather recliner. It was a one-photo sort of story :) They love this chair. My husband and I love it, too, but the kids want to rock and jump and lean back ... they're kids!

I used A+Designs kit, Sweet American Pie, which will be released August 13th ... jumped the gun :) and an alpha from Katherine Aagard (who I believe is retired).

I liked the layout alright and then the final step came - put on a title using an alpha - well, I got all the letters in there and was planning to do something smaller with journaling surrounding it to fill in the big space at the top ... and then just liked the way it looked all HUGE like this. It kind of adds to the idea of Big and Comfy :)

I hope you like it!!!

Together ... Luv U

I love speed scraps. I really do. If you have the time to do them :) This was for one of the eight speed scraps put on by in the month of June. I managed to make it to one of them ... the timing just didn't work out ... but I have one layout done!

I really love this layout. I loved these photos. I love the kit colors and the flowers ... I love it :)
I used Danielle Young and Katherine Brine's collab kit, Passionflower and Danielle Young's Tiny Seaglass Alphas.

I hope you like it, too!

Letters to Daddy

I'm back! I know it's been about a month, but there have been a lot of things going on lately including computer problems and a death in the family. God has given me grace for this time, but some things (like scrapbooking and this blog) get put on lower priority. However, I've found a bit of time to spare and here I am :)

This layout is of my daughter drawing a picture for Daddy while he was away last year.

I realized that my scrapbook pages are rather unbalanced when it comes to subject matter. There are more of my daughter then anything else. And then there are many more posed shot ones. I think I should work on doing some more boy ones (even though my favorite kits are so girly) and tell more stories ...

I used A+ Designs Country Shab kit and one of the corresponding templates.

I hope you like it!

Happy 4th of July!

Today is the day that we celebrate our Independence here in the United States of America. I am so happy to live in this country and to have freedom.

To celebrate, I did a layout using pictures from July 4th, 2010. Our church enters a float every year in the local parade and here we are (not everybody, just my family). I'm actually heading off to the parade again today!

I used Danielle Young's Let It Ring papers and alpha as well as papers and elements from Danielle Young's Funky Fourth kit. Template from Nattio Designs in the February Daily Digi.

I hope you like it! Go celebrate!!!
