Tag, you're it!

Yep, thats right...I said tag!  Every month at Scrap 'N Chat we do a scrapbooking tag, sort of like telephone tag.  The first person lifts a layout which is then sent to the second person who lifts that one and so on.

I started out in April.  I've been dying to post this one.  The original layout used a gingham background with a big circle of flowers and journalling at the top left corner and lower right.  So I came up with this.

I started with the checked background paper and added cardstock to it.  Then threw on a big circle.  The original had soo many flowers that I had to add a couple.  And viola...a layout about my daughters 3rd grade favorites (I do one every year)

Got some projects done!

Oh yeah!  I don't get much time to scrap these days so it takes forever to get a project done.  So I'm relying on inspiration from the web.  The first is a card I sent to an online friend who unexpectedly lost her husband.  I cannot even imagine getting the phone call she got.  Still thinking of you my friend.  I hope all is well.

The next project is for the SNC Weekend Blitz over at Scrap 'N Chat.  I finally actually got a challenge done in one weekend!  I'm soo excited.  The challenge was to use a sketch and a painting technique that was shared.  I also decided to do the card stock only challenge.  Viola...I got 6 cheer photos scrapped...Oh yeah!  And, btw...there should be a button with twine (like the one near the title) on the top star.  It had fallen off when I went to take the photo.

Another Mom Layout

Which took forever!  I think I started this one the week before Easter for Scrap 'N Chat's weekend blitz of 3-30

This is the first layout about the things mom loved.  I don't think I'm going to journal on this one.  She loved flowers, all flowers really.  But orchids and roses were her favorites.

I struggled a bit with the title.  Should I have used Loved or Loves.  I obviously picked Loved.

Easter photos

I finally used the timer on my camera and got a picture of the 4 of us! I didn't frame it very well and it needed cropping...therefor no feet! Oh least we got a photo of the 4 of us.
