Rough and Tumble

I finally scrapped some pictures I had been wanting to get to! Purging my photo box was a huge weight off my shoulder and really has helped me get back into this scrapbooking "thing"!

This first layout features a series of pictures I took of my son when he was having a tantrum. I could have stopped what I was doing and helped him out but it was one of those I want what I can't have fits and taking his picture actually distracted him quicker than anything else would have!

Such a sweet moment to capture! ;)

I love these next photos. It was that brief period of time when just one of his top front teeth had come through. So cute! This layout was "Pinspired" by one I had seen on the Doodlebug blog. You can see it here:

The papers, rub-ons and journal cards I used for both of these layouts are Fancy Pant's Designs older collection called "Rough and Tumble." I just love the doodled look it has and I know I am going to wish that I had more. I find myself really drawn to papers with that doodled feel.

Those Awkward Years.....

Oh my goodness. This is a pretty embarrassing layout. But it was also a lot of fun to do! Scrapbookin' Adventures' latest facebook challenge was to scrap yourself. Well I had this idea that's been brewing for a few months, so I decided to take the plunge!

There I am. In all my awkward, teenage glory. Seriously though, it's a great way to document those school pictures that our buried away in an envelope or album somewhere.

Thanks for checking it out and I challenge you to give it a try too! And share a link with me if you do!

{be Inspired}

I am slowly starting to get back into my favorite past time again. I did a huge purge of my supplies and sorted through the photo box FULL of photos. The ones I don't want to scrap are now in albums and I have about 1/3 of the box left to scrap. I may even get around to printing off 2013 photos before the year ends! Anyways, this purge has really helped me want to get crafty again. The amount of stuff I had was just too overwhelming.

Today I have card I made for a special lady's birthday. I also decided to join in the Unity Stamp Company monthly {be Inspired} challenge, since I was going to be using one of their stamp set.

My inspiration from this card came the the {be Inspired} colour challenge and also from a card I had seen on Pinterest. You can see the card here: The Unity challenge is here: I think you still have a few days to join in!

I even decided to pretty the inside up a little. (Mostly to hide the green marker that had bled through from the wine bottle!) I used the Unity "Time for Wine" stamp set and Echo Park Paper's "So Happy Together" collection. Plus a little ribbon and bling from my stash.

Thanks for checking out my card! I'll be back soon with a couple of new layouts I have been working on!
