Catching Up Again!

 My son made this sweet Valentine for his dad. Looks so pretty in the sunny window!

 I used the Doodlebug camping line for this layout. It was my son's first time hiking and sleeping in a tent. He was one happy camper- very excited!!!
 I used Doodlepops and stickers to embellish my page. The lil' critters are so cute!

 I made a  boy birthday card using last year's Doodlebug Hip Hip Hooray line. I still love this one and it will probably be my go to birthday stash.

 I made this layout using Echo Park paper but Doodlebug stickers. It was a mix of many different lines.
 Here is the layout in full. As you can see my son is not afraid of a little dirt! He loved playing in the garden last summer. I wish the snow would start melting here so we can get outside- it has been SOOOO long!

 I really like how this one turned out. I used a whole lot of glitter accents on this layout. Yes, I am a football fan. Every September there is a game called the Banjo Bowl that is a rather big deal for Bomber fans. I got into the spirit this year and dressed up. It was pretty fun, except for the fact that we lost.
 I used glitter paper in our team colours- blue and gold and blue ink on this layout. I used Sticko gold letters and American Crafts Thickers for the title. A very easy layout but so much pizazz!!!

A Whole Lot to See Here!

 Okay, so my computer was not letting me post anything. I am now working on the problem by using my laptop and a USB stick....not the most efficient way but at least it is working! I might also start a new blog so stay tuned for that.

 I made this layout using Echo Park. Since there are piles of pics here I am going to be super brief!

 This is Easter/Spring paper by Doodlebug.

 I made this layout using Lawn Fawn and I really like this one....My son was so cute with our Christmas d├ęcor.

 This layout was made with Fall Doodlebug products. I might change those leaves a bit since they feel a little too uniform for my liking.

 Valentine's has come and gone but I was not able to share my cards. So all my pictures are kind of all over the place, theme wise. I used Doodlebug for this card- love those cute Doodlepops!

 Here are 2 spring cards using Doodlebug again. What can I say- I am a huge fan!

 These items were all made with Valentine Doodlebug stuff. How cute are the frogs and bugs....

I had to include this- I made a heart shaped scone for breakfast on Valentine's day. Yum!

Will This Work???

I used Bella Blvd. for this layout.
I made this layout using Doodlebug Valentine paper from last year. The photo was us on New Year's Eve. I was taking selfies of us cuddling together as a family. I like the way my hubby and I are looking at each other- so many words and thoughts passing between us with just a look!
My son did get cut out but I still like this photo.

Fall Fun with Doodlebug

 I have had this page ready to go for awhile- it just needed a photo and I finally finished it! I try to wait for a photo sale and luckily I caught one and was able to print the 2000 or so pictures I had saved up!
 I punched circles from Doodlebug's fall lines and embellished them with stickers. I used American Crafts Thickers for the title. It has been awhile but I believe I got the idea for this layout from a post by Mendi on the Doodlebug blog.

I love the colours on this layout. That is what I just love about Doodlebug, the happy colours!

You Warm my Heart

 I made this layout using Lawn Fawn paper and Elle's Studio embellishments. They seemed to match really well which worked out for me!
 I kept this layout very simple. I pop dotted some of the embellishments at the top. I used 3 border strips from Lawn Fawn and I stamped the date under my picture as well.

Keep warm- it is a cold one out there today!!!

Twinkle Star Card

Well, it is sure feels wierd saying we are in the year 2015. We should be flying around in space cars shouldn't we????

A little card to start the new year off on a creative note! I used Bella Blvd. products and Doodlebug sequins.

Whatever the resolutions this year, I hope you will be happy and focus on living the best life. Yeah for 2015 being an amazing year!!!

Live in the Sun Layout

 Happy New Year's Eve! I made this layout yesturday using Echo Park's Paradise Beach paper line. It is an older line that I never used. My goal last year was to start using all my products that I have been hoarding. I think I did pretty good- I made piles of layouts and cards. So my New Year's Scrapping resolution will be to continue with that theme- use, use, use! The problem of course is that I buy, buy, buy more!!! I know I have way too much but I am not great with letting go of the old. I figure one day I will find a use for it all......
So my goal will be to continue using as much older stuff as I can. I wonder what people do with product that is half used and not in style......maybe I should let the kids at school use it for crafts.

 This is one sweet memory from last summer.....remember the summer and the sun!!! Now that Christmas is over I wait anxiously for warmer weather. If we could just have winter for December I would be happy! I need a white Christmas but then I am done. My layout was so simple. I cut the designs from another piece of paper. I added some stickers with pop dots. Honestly I was kind of stumped with this layout. Sometimes it is just like that. Oh well.

                                                     Cheers for a crafty 2015!!!

Fa La La La La

Merry Christmas and  Happy New Year to everyone!!! I have been absent from my blog due to the usual Christmas madness. I was sewing pillows and then aprons and then wrapping and shopping and then Christmas-ing. Phew- now I can breath again!!!

I made this layout today using my holiday card that I sent to friends and family. I used Echo Park's Home for the Holidays.

I need to develop all my photos from Christmas so I can scrap them- I may even have enough to make a December daily album. At least I tried to take a picture every day. As usual, no time for the daily recording in an album but maybe I will get something done!

Happy New Year!!!

Hope, Peace, and Joy!

 Up first is a tag I made using Doodlebug. Very simple- just added a snowman and a fancy frill border.

Below is a Jillibean Holly Berry Borscht card I made. I used the Pea Pod parts and the paper.
It is the last week of panic before Christmas......I never feel ready, no matter how early I start.
