You Are Beautiful...

 I did this layout using a sketch from the Elle's Studio blog. It was quite a challenge for me, all those little layers and white space. I didn't use a single piece of patterned paper, which is basically unheard of! There are lots of Elle's tags (I just love the title one!) and Sassafrass stickers, plus a little mist and bazzil swiss-dot. It looks like it shoulda taken me about 5 minutes to slap down, but it was actually a couple hours. Phew!

Thanks for stopping by...

Really Big Wheel

Another layout for the "Let's Ride" theme at Paper Issues, again using Toy Box from Crate Paper. I scrapped an Instagram pic of Peter checking out a huge tractor wheel at the farm. I love that little chipboard tractor--it sparkles! I did some watercolor paint splatters, that's new for me. My husband said it looks like I bled on the paper. Nice, huh.

This next layout is also Crate Paper, but from the Emma's Shoppe line.
 I had fun stitching all over the place on this one. I figure if I am going to haul my sewing machine out of the closet to sew on a layout I might as well go to town. This song has been stuck in my head since I made the page, like a week ago. Now it's probably stuck in yours. Talking 'bout....my girl, my girl.

Let's Ride

New theme "Let's Ride" is up at Paper Issues...I made this page using Crate Paper's Toy Box. I love all the boyish goodies. It's fun having a boy...it cracks me up that he's obsessed with cars already at 21 months! So typical...

I used Stretch you Sketches sketch #10.

Makin a Splash

That's the theme this go-round at Paper Issues, come link up and you might be featured!

I made a layout using Basic Grey's Lime Rickey (and a bit o' Sass), and pictures of my youngest daughter playing in the sprinkler. Both of my girls are part fish...they seriously LOVE the water!

And it's a double-pager! 

Thanks for stopping by, have a great Wednesday :)
