Cousins layout

This Christmas our family got together on the beach in San Diego for a week. It was a wonderful time for me because all my boys and their families were in one place for me to enjoy. That's not easy when we live so far apart, have busy lives, and so many grand kids. But now is the time to do it while they are still young and not too involved in their own activities. Here is a layout I made of the pictures my DIL too of two of my grand kids. Alli is 31/2  and Jaxon is 2 1/2 . They are cousins but they look more like brother and sister. It was so much fun watching them play together. They were such copy cats, having to do the same things together.

Cole's Knit Cap

I fell in love this this picture of Cole in this Owl knit cap, too cute! I had to make a special layout just for him. I used some retired dsp for the background and scraps for the flags down the side. I love you Cole!

Alli's Layout

 The flowers and lace for this layout were purchased at the CKC Scrapbooking show in Houston last July. They were perfect for this layout. See how the loops in the lace repeat the loops in the Pool Party dsp.
 The name banner was made using the Pennant Punch from Stampin' Up!
 It's hard to tell, but there is a large scalloped heart behind the words that was made using the heart framelits. I also die cut the doily. The butterflies are made using the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the matching punch. But cutting off the top and bottom petals, you can make a beautiful butterfly.
I was inspired to make this layout by a layout I saw in Scrapbooking & Beyond Spring 2012. I love the vintage look and the Everyday Enchantment Designer Paper from the Sale-a-bration catty.m
And this beauty is my granddaughter Ashlyn, or Alli as she is called.

Recent Swaps

 Have you become addicted to Pinterest yet? I stumbled across one day while looking at Nancy Reily's iPicks. I am finding lots of inspiration there. For example both of these cards were inspired by cards found on Pinterest. This layout with the circles came from Joy Taylor. I converted it to all Stampin' Up! products using the FREE Sale-a-bration designer paper Everyday Enchantment. Such gorgeous paper! I used the 1 3/8" and 1" circle punches. I sponged all the edges with Soft Suede ink. The card base is Lucky Limeade.
Down the Rabbit Hole my way was inspired by Crystal Rood at Again I tweeked the design and used all SU products. Dont you just love the scalloped edge? I used the new edglits and the adorned accents embossing folder. This is also made with the Everyday Enchantment paper from Sale-a-bration.
