Messy Eaters

I’m going to pick on Lauren – she is such a messy eater – you can always tell what she’s been eating from the smears on her face or stains on her clothes.  This page was inspired by the April 15th challenge at scrap our stash.  I was inspired by the bright pink and other bright colors, the confetti, the circles, flowers,clouds and touches of gold.  Again, I’ve been weeding out my stash and used some old Prima, MME, making memories product alongside some new Umwow .

A Spring Page

I know it doesn’t look very Spring-like but in Alaska Spring = potholes, snowmelt and MUD, MUD, MUD.  When our kids were little their fav activity was to go and play in the mud pit at the back of our house.

I’e also been making an effort to try and use up a lot of my stash, mixing it with new products.

This page is inspired by the April 15th sketch at Stuck Sketches

Crazy for Woodgrain

I really love woodgrain paper and I was so excited to find this new Bo Bunny white woodgrain.  It’s actually even more beautiful IRL with soft pink and yellow misting/masking.  I finally made myself use it and paired it with lots of older strip scraps from my stash

I linked this to the Paper Issues Prints Charming’s Beautiful Papers link party

Using Up Scraps

So – I was playing around with a sketch that had scalloped strips across the bottom of the page.  I thought I would create little scalloped pockets and fill them with sequins buttons etc.  Then I looked at my scrap drawer and thought I would just hole punch my scraps instead. I’m also using this page for the April 1st challenge at Scrap our stash.  Create a page using something for every letter of the word STAMP. I used S – Simple Stories frames/stitching, T – transarent flower from Heidi Swapp, A – arrow, M – MME brad/Maya Road ink splatters, P – Prima mist sohappy

Let’s Capture Our Memories sketch 119

Let’s Capture Our Memories sketch 119 was a great layered sketch – Again, I’ve been going back in time for my pictures.  This is of Lauren on the boat about 8 years ago.

CSI Case File 161

CSI Case 161 was a fun case file

Lauren recently asked me what day she was born on – a Thursday and it reminded me of this old poem .

Monday’s child is fair of face
Tuesday’s child is full of grace
Wednesday’s child is full of woe
Thursday’s child has far to go
Friday’s child works hard for a living
Saturday’s child is loving and giving
But the child who is born on the Sabbath day is bonnie and blithe and good and gay.

Turns out her saying is very apt. Jnlg reads,”Lauren is an adventurer. She’s been travelling since she was 6 months old. She plans on visiting Japan, Greece and Australia. The more exotic, the better. Lauren would love to go to University abroad. Go Lauren”

Playing Messy

I’ve been a fan of Missy Whidden’s creations for a long time.  I’ve often studied them to try and work out how she did it but didn’t know where to start.  Then Missy created a how-to tutorial and she actually make it look feasible. Thank you Missy. So this is the page I created following her steps.  It’s inspired by this image from Creative Embellishments for their April challenge.  I was inspired by the Spring colors – blues, pinks, yellows, green and the butterflies  and I used a star circle from CE

Best of Friends

When I saw this pinspire piece from Paper Issues I knew immediately what I wanted to scrap – Lauren and her cousin Emma on the tyre swing – they just had so much fun.  Even though they only get to see each other once a year they pick up right where they left off – the best of friends


I used stuck sketches April sketch which was perfect for this

Boys Rule Sketch

I  loved this sketch – perfect for these pics of Nathan at the beach a few summers ago.  He decided to give himself a sand bath – first he got wet in the sea, then rolled in the sand till he was covered.  Then, of course, he chased Lauren with a huge piece of seaweed.  Summer madness.

Paper Issues Sketch

Just sharing a fun page I made inspired by the Saturday sketch at Paper Issues

I also linked it to the Paper Issues Eggs-cellent Add-ventures link party – got a bird and feather on this one

I used a PI cut file but since I don’t have a cutting m/c I just printed it out and cut by hand
