Little bird–Beward

Hi everyone.  Here a scrapbook page I made of Sarah in her first Halloween costume.  I’m not sure if she is a baby chicken or baby duck but I am sure she is precious.  Don’t you just love the yellow feather boa all around her.  Kathryn (Dream Big Photography) planned and took this great photo–of couse–and it is soooo cute!  I decided to add a little Halloween humor/horror by adding the cat.  Little bird BEWARE!

For this layout, I used a Halloween collection Mummy-ish by Aimee Harrison Design Studio, ADB Designs, Mad Genius Designs and The Urban Fairy.  Find it at Digital Scrapbooking Studio.

Shopping and new layouts today!

Well I have been out shopping all day today.  I went to Atlanta and spent the day with my daughter-in-law. We went to many different stores, found several things I love and best of all, I bought the new PSE11 at Costco.  Can’t wait to get it installed and start playing with the new features!

I have two new scrapbook pages I have made this week to share with all of you today so let’s take a look.

The first features Kathryn and William hugging.  I love this photo and I love both of them. I am proud of Kathryn and her accomplishments, I admire her talents in photography, and of course I love her–my first baby.  And William is her first baby.  I think the photo shows their love for each other, so I titled it Love You.  (The #xoxo is hugs and kisses in Twitter language-in case you are not a Twitter fan.)

And here’s the mini kit Inspire Me I used to make this layout.  The image is linked to a store where you can buy it.

Next is a photo of Sarah last Halloween checking out the candy at her house before going Trick or Treating in the neighborhood.  Her costume was Bat-a-rina, as in a dancing bat.

And the mini kit Sweet Stuff used to make the layout.  Image is linked also.

More tomorrow!





Soccer anyone?

Today I did a scrapbook page featuring William playing soccer.  Kathryn said he loves it and smiles the entire time he is playing.  Here’s the layout.

The kit I used is called Movie Night  by Christine Smith and is available at her store.  Below is what it looks like. I had to be a little creative and go off theme here since I didn’t have any photos related to movies.  The colors and stars work well with sports also.

Fall leaves and appreciating autumn beauty!

Today I would like to share a scrapbook page featuring a beautiful scene of a fall foliage.  Actually the photo does not accurately show how bright and intense the color was on that sunny day.  I took this photo on the Oak Hill Museum grounds of Berry College in Georgia.

For this layout I used a gorgeous kit and collection called Autumn Beauty by Aimee Harrison Design Studios.  Here’s the Autumn Beauty collection. As you can see below, it is available now at a special reduced release price.  Get it now!

Halloween is coming!

Today I want to show you two layouts I designed using the Eek-A-Boo collection by Snips and Snails Designs and River Rose Designs (image is linked to store). This collection has lots of fun Halloween and fall items.  It was fun to work with.

I did two entirely different color themed layouts and I believe I only repeated one item from the collection in the two designs. Can you spot the repeat?

The first scrapbook page is of William  in his Darth Maul costume from Star Wars.

 The second layout is again of William at a much younger age with photos of his very first Halloween costume.  He was such a cute little tiger!

That’s all for today.  I am still catching up on things from being on vacation.  More this week to come!




I’m back and have a new kit and layout to show you!

I’ve been traveling for the past 10 days–had lots of fun– and am now back home and creating again.  Today I made a layout using a new kit called Darkening Days from Christine Smith.  The kit has rich fall colors and is absoultely beautiful.  You can see it at her store–linked to the image.

My layout features my granddaughter and her father sitting in their front doorway waiting for the rain to stop.  I believe it had been raining for several days and Sarah was ready to go out to play.  Kathryn took this wonderful photo.  Check out her blog!  (link button on right)


Fall is here and Halloween is not far away! What’s new today?

Today I have two great new products and several new layouts for you to see. First lets look at a new fall kit called Blustery Day from Aimee at Aimee Harrison Design Studios.  Aimee has such as talent for putting together beautiful, high quality scrapbook kits and this one is no exception.

When I saw the name of this kit, I immediately thought of what kids like to do (at least in my childhood) on a windy day–fly a kit.  This layout features my grandson William (age 5) doing just that.  I was surprised to learn from my daughter that this was done on a day when a hurricane was approaching where they live.  Guess that is one way to take your mind off the coming storm!


Next is a new release today called All Hallows Eve from Stephanne at Snips and Snails.  This is a traditional Halloween collection featuring lots of elements, patterned paper, solid papers, paint splatter type overlays, and very cute treat bag toppers.  Just click on the image below to go to her store and see more layouts made with this collection.

I made two layouts with this collection.   The first is of grandson William at age 2 as little Frankenstein. He was so cute he would have never spooked anyone!

Next is a page featuring a photo that Kathryn (Dream Big Photography) took while her family was going around the neighborhood Trick or Treating last year.  This neighbor’s yard just looks spooky to me!

All of the photos in these layout were taken by my very talented daughter Kathryn, aka Dream Big Photography.  Check out her new blog here.

That’s it for today.  I’m off to do some traveling.  Be back soon!
