Every Girl a princess

Had fun with this LO channeling multiple Disney themes. I added clocks to echo Cinderella's relationship with time, stars to wish upon, gems & a silver frame to further the notion of a princess. I didn't want to go to girly but I did want to make it pretty & worthy of a princess. For the frame I used a gel crayon from Faber Castell. They are super easy to use and the mess is minimal. I love the effect that it has with the cb.

Supplies: The pp & sicker letters are Sassafras; flowers: Prima; Clocks & brads: Making Memories; stars: Recollections. The other items I have had so long that I don't recall the manufacturer.

Here's another close up, a portion of the cb is poking out so you can see a close up of the gel crayon.

I love playing a round with my scrapbook style & trying out new looks. I love the creativity of scrapbooking. May you always have fun a create!

Christmas in July

I have set aside my Disney Los for awhile to work on Christmas LOs. Most of the paper is from Colorbok from Walmart. Proving that you can make a fabulous Lo with any product! You don't have to have the latest & greatest to record your memories. I think that the real trick is using whatever products that you have on hand to create Los that are timeless. "Snowball Fight" Although the title doesn't show up very well in the photo, it's there LOL. The pics show all the action for the LO so I kept embellishments simple. I love the pop of color to help balance all of the white snow.

close up of pg 2. notice the spray of that effect.

close up of pg 1. I used the frame to really focus on the group shot. I think that you can imagine how much fun these guys had!

"Cousin, Friend" These pics were taken at a skating rink so the lighting was not optimal. The flowers that I added are Sassafras. Love the relationship that I have with my cousin, we are still very close.

"Snow Fun" Love these pics! They showcase the action and fun that these kids were having! Used some MME in addition to the colorbok. I had a close up shot of this Lo but I forgot to add it. For a fun touch I added gem swirls to the last picture to give an idea of speed. The swirls and the glittery letters are MM.

Happy Monday!

the big cheese

Well, here we are meeting the big cheese himself. I am so happy that I was able to carve a little time out to create a couple LOs. I always feel a little off when I go to long without scrapping! For my Mickey Lo I used images from the Disney Cricut cart, Bazzill CS, Sassafras flowers & MM rub-ons.

"Sweet Boy" For this Lo I used MM collection almost exclusively. The title at the bottom of the page is difficult to see from the pic I took, but they are felt letters and look much better IRL. The felt stars are not that shocking orange either. LOL. One of these days I will perfect taking pics of my Los, hopefully.

I have some serious catching up to do in the blog world. So many blogs to little time!

Have a great week!

busy, oh so busy!

Between directing VBS and travelling every chance we get, I have not been scrapping at all in the last few weeks. I have been taking many photos however & should have many LO's to post once things settle down a bit!

I also wanted a chance to win some fun scrapbook goodies from Nikki Sivils. Her products are fun, whimsical & so full of charm!

Have a happy summer & don't forget the sunscreen!
