A new day and a new layout...scrapbook layout 02

As I'm still trying to recover from my cold, I have decided to make another layout. 

Just look at these fun silly pictures of the kids.  A few summers ago, we were sitting at the pool in a resort in Florida, snacking on orange slices, when the children both turned to me flashing goofy orange slice smiles!  

In this layout I used crĂªpe paper at the bottom sprinkled with color shine to mimic waves.

 I took some of the red from the picture and I counterbalanced it on the side with a hand cut tab.  

On the tab, I wrote the words love using alpha stickers in brown to coordinate with the brown circle.  

I backed the Photos on some cute white and blue arrow paper that again goes with the nautical theme. Then back the whole thing on a white doily.  To finish it off I hand cut two flags on the top left corner and then added some bling in silver stars and sequins!

taking a sick day...scrapbook layout 01

I decided to make the most of a sick day today and get some scrapbooking done. This is a layout of my family at Hollywood studios in Florida about two years ago.

Instead of focusing on decorations for Disney I went with the decoration that way is visually appealing to me. It is something that's a little bit out of my comfort zone...but I think I like it!

What do you think?

silhouette came {STENCILS}

I decided to cut out some stencils using a heavy weight card stock. So I thought I would share them.  A question out into the void....

"Is it weird that seeing these bits of card stock on the Silhouette mat fills me with happiness?"

Ahhh..they're so cute!

jezebel and {BUTTERFLIES}

Jezebel was a beautiful and loyal furry friend that is no longer here with us.  Her mom can imagine her running in green apple fields chasing butterflies...I see it!

This swap was part of an ABC series that I am in. (I forgot to photograph my A, Alice in Wonderland) So once I read about Jezebel, I knew that this ATC needed to be butterflies, greens and made with LOVE.

Here are a couple of goodies that I threw in.  Is it me or are raffle tickets the best?  Who knows what childhood memory I have forgotten involving these lovely little beauties.  Oh yeah don't forget the sparkling Jack of Clubs and the feather I made on my Silhouette Cameo.

ha-ha-happy mail is here again!  

Today my swap was to fill an envelope with several items, I chose:

* a bookmark
* an atc
* 5 envelopes
* a quote
* stickers
* fabric swatch and 
* washi tape

I made these envelopes using my Silhouette Cameo.  I made various sizes and I think they're adorable.  It was hard to send them off!

Before I was assigned a project in this swap, I began to make this ATC of Marie Antoinette.  In my head, I saw pink and turquoise, and the queen herself.  Her hair dolloped on her head like a mound of merengue.   You know that I adore the misunderstood queen and here.

Once I was assigned a partner, I realized that she loved those two colors and she dreamed of one day opening a bakery.  How funny was that?  Marie!  What's not to love? cake AND merengue!
