Home is where we are...

A few nights ago I had a heart to heart talk with my husband. As you may or may not know we moved from Central California to Northern California because of his work with the state of California were he works as a Peace Officer. When we moved we left our home behind and we are currently renting a duplex. I found out that renting is a real adventure. Often my kids ask "mom when are we going home?". I usually tell them we are long as we are all together we are home; and that's the reason we moved to be near dad. I truly value the fact that my husband is such a wonderful father and I need to have our kids near him; and that's why I couldn't live 8 hours away from him anymore...

For this project I used lots of goodies such as: Prima Papers and flowers from my Butterfly kit, Graphic 45 papers, Music sheets from a 1820 book, Tim Holtz inks and chipboard, Martha Stewart glitter, Darcie chipboard house, Tattered Angels chipboard, glimmer mist and Jenni Bowlin bingo cards. I distressed the pink ribbon with tattered Angels and it will be available for purchase here soon.

Thanks for all your comments and friendship it really does mean a lot to me.

Once upon a time...

Once upon a time a boy asked a girl out and ever since then they lived happily ever after...yes it could happen, in fact my brother asked me to start a scrapbook of his family and this is the first page. Since I live so far away from his home I made the page and for blog purposes added a photo of my kids. This layout will eventually have a photo of his family.

I made this layout using papers and flower from my Vintage Garden Kit, available here...

Let's go on an adventure...

My kids love going to the park, I'm not sure what they talk about when I'm not near them. Here is one of those times captured on film...

For this layout I used my new Tattered Angels, using the heart glimmer screen and the S.W.A.K glimmer mist from my kit along with the Black Magic glimmer mist for the flowers and the Prima felt. The paper is from Little Yellow Bicyle and the flowers are from Prima Marketing, the big black flower is from some pants I bought but didn't like the flower where it was soooo I took it off and saved it for later...The gray flowers were also included in my Vintage Garden Kit and sprayed with Glimmer Mist.

Destination Unknown..

This layout has been such a challenge for might ask why??? Well, most of my work has some type of femenine feel to it and I decided to step out of the box and participate in a challenge. This challenge was to create a "manly" layout...NO FLOWERS allowed. Here is what I came up with.

Products used: Making Memories transparency, Little Yellow Bicycle pp and chipboard, My little shoe box tiny alphabets, Maya Road Kraft envelope and My mind's eyes rub ons.

A little Note...

Spring is in the air...the smell of flowers, the fresh air, the birds chirping they all have put me in a romantic mood...
I created two different cards using pretty much the same products...yes they are left overs from my Butterfly kit...all I added was the vintage images from my stash.

Products used for the first card: Prima paper, twill tape, Tattered Angels glimmer mist in Cherub Pink (just a coincidence), Crafty Secrets stamps, Tim Holtz ink and wrights lace.

The second card was made using: Prima Papers, Making Memories label and leaves, Wrights lace, Crepe paper and Tim Holtz inks.

Thanks for looking!
