"First Day of School" Layout

Yep - my two grandsons started pre-kindergarden this year! And as you can tell by the photo they were super excited. Don't you wish the excitement would last another 12 years? Maybe when they get "senior-itis" I can show them this layout and rekindle it? ...or not.

I made the large flower by using Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Sizzix die. The paper is from an old book I bought at The Ole' Mill Store in Fisher, LA. If you are ever in central Louisiana you need to stop by this fun antique store. It's huge and has tons and tons of antique items!

Here is a close-up of the flower.  I inked the edges with brown ink, crinkled the petals a little bit then just stacked them up.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

"Present and Future Fans" Layout

Sometimes I have to make myself get away from all the flowers and girly layouts. They just come easy for me. My son always comments about putting flowers on the boy's layouts. For awhile I could use the excuse... "Their babies!" But now that they are four I guess I need to do more masculine looking layouts huh?

OK so the layout above has a flower on it. But hey - it's a manly flower. ;-) And I did put gears on it. It's a layout of when my son took the boys to see their first Chicago Cubs baseball game. Jessie has always been a fan of the Cubs, ever since Little League when his team was the Cubs. I think he just liked the uniforms.

Anyway - I used papers from Bo Bunny's Timepiece Collections. I hope you like it!

"Family" Layout

Here is a fun, simple layout that we will be doing in the next scrapbooking class. It features an older line of paper from Kaisercraft - the Chapter One Collection. But the colors are still so trendy! I love the teals, light blues and blacks. It's a very easy line to work with.

The photo is of (L-R) me, my brother Michael, my mom Stella and my sister, Terri. It was taken at my brother's wedding. It's one of the few photos of the four of us.

Well - I hope you like the photo and the layout! ...til next time...
