Weekend Scrappin'




I completed three adorable Annika layouts this weekend.

Adorable Annika was created using Flergs Caramel Pudding Kit and Glitter by Flergs.   I just love her stuff so much (I know, I keep saying that, but it's TRUE!!!!)  I felt that the outfit Annika was wearing was a little too bright, so I played with the photo a little bit, making the outfit a little less bright.  My little thumb sucker.  I have a love hate relationship with the thumb sucking.  I know that I SHOULD hate it and I SHOULD make her stop.  I LOVE that she sucks her thumb, it reminds me of how young she really is.  She's my last baby and I want to hold onto that feeling FOREVER!!!

Be Mine was created using Amanda Dykan's Kiwi Mochacino and Caramel Pudding Glitter by Flergs.  I took the photos of Annika last Valentine's Day.   Her daddy gave her that pillow and boy does she love it!!!

Pure Joy
was started last week at the crop I went to.  I used Holiday Jingle and Merry & Bright,  both by Gina Cabrera.  I also added a touch of Caramel Pudding Glitter by Flergs.  I have to add glitter to everything I do!!!!

Flergs & Croppin'

OHHHH!!!! Want to join me on Flergs' Creative Team???   Flergs just announced an awesome little contest in which you earn a spot on her CT!! WOOOHOOO!!!!!  Check out her blog for details.  Don't post the links in MY blog, post them in hers :).


Friday morning a co-worker of mine asked if I was interested in going to a crop at a store in a nearby city.  I thought about it for a minute and said SURE.   At first I was a little hesitant since I use my computer, but thought...to each his own! LOL

We drove down to Remember When right after school let out.  We cropped from 3 pm until about 11 pm when we both decided that we were TIRED.  I managed to squeak out two pages, I was really having a hard time keeping motivated, first I was hungry, then tired.  I did purchase some AWESOME chipboard ring albums from Basic Grey.  I got the scallop, bracket, and key plate albums.  OMG, they are adorable.  I'm using the scallop for our 2006 trip to Disney.  So far I have 5 pages done, printed, and MOUNTED in the album!!! 

THe first layout I created is using Gina Cabrera's NEW Wonderland Mega kit and her January 2008 Idea Notebook.  Both items are FULL of great stuff!!!

The second layout is using Flergs Grunged and Chocolate Berry.  These kits are SOOOOOO awesome.  How many layouts have I created with them???

The Disney album I'm creating is using a few kits from Shabby Miss Jenn.  I'm mostly using Tree Trimmin' Party and Xmas Market.  (I'll upload the album in a bit, I didn't resize the layouts for the web.)




My word



Can I tell you how much I love scrapping?  It's been so much fun to just SIT and SCRAP my memories!!!  I love the feeling of putting together a layout.  I'm the type of layout artist that does it all in one sitting.  I need that instant gratification.  I think it's the ADD in me that can't possibly "finish" it another day.   I keep a folder on my little EHD for "Layouts in Progress", they are OLD!!! I really should delete them and start fresh. 

I made 2 layouts yesterday.  The first one was a Scraplift for for a challenge by "Lifts with a Twist".  The site is closing down and the last lift was to use SMJ.  How could this GIANT fan of SMJ refuse???  I really had a lot of fun with the layout.  The picture I used was of Annika opening up her Hannah Montana doll that Grandpa Ray and Grandma Linda gave her.  She threw up her hands to her face and just started shrieking.  I honestly had no idea that present would be such a hit.  I used SMJ's Tree Trimmin' Party and Xmas Market kits. WHich I should add, go wonderfully together and I've put together so many layouts with!

The second layout I did was with Flergs' new kit, Deacon's Closet.   I used all the "add-ons" too, Glitter and Swirls.  I wanted the layout to have lots of layering.  I keep seeing awesome layouts in the galleries with tons of layering and lots of negative space.  I struggle with negative space, I always feel like something is missing.  I did my best here with both concepts.  I really like the way it came out.   The picture is of Alex doing donuts on his little Kawasaki KLX110.  Now, most of you don't ride and therefore have NO idea... his bike is AWESOME.  It's not just a stock 110.  A friend of ours redid the suspension, added a clutch, put a new exhaust, added lots of BLING, etc.   Alex is really an amazing little rider.  He rides hard, crashes harder, and gets back up to go again.  I have been talking to the husband about getting this boy on a track.  He needs to learn control and how to ride technically.  We have two friends that have said that they'd work with him on his technical riding.  Watch out friends, Alex  is on his way to track near you!

I have a third layout to share with you too.  I didn't do this one yesterday, but the day before.  ANNIKA has started to ride a dirt bike!!! This particular bike isn't hers, we borrowed it from a friend.  I really thought she'd be more apprehensive, NO WAY!!!  She takes after her brother whom has no fear.  She hopped up on that bad boy and off she went.  When we'd try to get her to stop, she'd ride past us giggling...NO WAY MOM, I wanna ride!!!!  I used Amanda Dykan's new kit Ladies Prefer Pink and her new alphabet Notepaper Alpha.  Super stuff my friends, super stuff!!!




Just picked these up....

Want to know the truth?  I HATE SHOPPING!!! Seriously I hate it.  I do however LOVE TO SHOP for digital kits.  It's so easy, so quick, and sooooooooooooooo much fun!!!!
