I Won I Won!!

Yippie!! I won a Two Peas giveaway on Instagram!! A bunch of wood veneers and flair that are so great for winter pages!!! How Fun!!
This March It's My Life Scraptastic Club kit is so gorgeous!!! I just love this October Afternoon Click paper. it was my fav and I wanted to allow the writing on it to be seen. I have been using this design a lot lately and just feel like it works for me so why change :) I cut a strip of the My Mind's Eye Celebrate paper to use as the back ground of my photo. I just love how it matched the washi tape in the pic!!

This ended up being a very simple layout that took no time at all. My layouts usually take over an hour so it was fun to move right along with this one.
Thanx for visiting my spot in blogland and enjoy your scraps!!!

Me @ 40

Here's a fun layout to share. I made it awhile back when I went to my sisters for a scrap weekend. I have always wanted to try stitching on a layout so I got brave and went for it.

I had just picked up the Maggie Holmes paper pack and the Heidi Swapp Sunburst Stencil at Michael's right before I left to go to Lisa's and had this layout in mind then. I really had fun stitching the paper and knew this pic would go perfect. I never do girly layouts cuz I have 2 boys so this was fun. I used embellishments from my stash. There's some Amy Tangerine die cuts and a My Minds Eye banner sticker.

Some cut aparts and sequins form Scraptastic Club

A Flair For Buttons flair badge
I really had fun with this layout and really want to do more stitching on my layouts. I have my grandma's old sewing machine and it's huge and heavy so it's not real convenient to get out for a tiny bit of stitching on a layout. I really want one of those mini sewing machines but just can't justify buying one when mine works fine.
Thanx for stopping by and enjoy your scraps!!!

Look What I Found!!

Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog's Tails
That's what my boy's are made of and I love it!! Gus and Colton love the creepy crawly's and I have to say I don't mind them either. Just can't handle spiders but the salamanders and worms and snakes.. Bring them on!!! These pictures were taken a month apart but these boys love bringing me their finds to show off so of course I had to take a pic.

I used the March It's My Life kit mostly and a bit of the February Mr. Big Stuff kit from Scraptastic Club. These 2 kits go great together. I started with the Bazzill Raspberry Splash card stock as my base for this layout. I just love the Bella Blvd Family Photo paper and wanted to use a lot of it on this page so I cut a 5 1/2 x 11 1/2 to fit on the right half of the page. I used the Bazzill Adventure Arrows for the paper behind my photos and the navy chevrons pointing to the photos. Just love the Echo Park That's My Boy You Rock sheet of cut outs. It really said what I wanted for these photo's.
Here's the top 2 cluster of embellishments. I used the October Afternoon Snapshots Snap Caps and the October Afternoon To The Point Chipboard Arrows. The stars are from the March add-on as well as the daily die cut. So cute and fun!
Here's the title. How great are these October Afternoon Stop Light Alphas?!?!?! Love the cursive font. That flair is an exclusive design of Kaitlin Scheaffer and I love it.
Hope you enjoyed this one and hope you all enjoy your scraps!!!
