These days I've been busy in the studio. With all of the goodies from the last CHA show flooding the shelves of the LSS it has been hard to not be in a scrappy kind of mood. I've completed six pages that I will be sharing very soon. But today, I played with some papers by Paige Evans. I love the happy vibe of this collection and so it seemed very fitting for scrapping a page about Lisa and Steve. They are about as relaxed and playful as any couple could possibly be. Here's a photo of them taken at Diane and Eric's wedding.
Playing with negative space, velum and shiny mirrored embellishments!
My love of circles goes on and on!
I used this sketch from Page Maps for inspiration.
Wishing you all a wonderful spring afternoon. The sun is finally shining here and I was very happy to notice a couple of Swallows hanging out at the bird house yesterday. The air has been filled with bird song and it couldn't make me happier.
Ha Ha Maggie and Lady's life for sure... and every other dog on this planet! I think in my next life I'll come back as a dog. Although the food doesn't seem that appetizing nor does napping 20 hours a day. ;)
I'm just waiting for Rob to get home from work and then we are taking the pups on their walk. It is so awesome to have such great weather these days.
Wishing you all a peaceful day, living in the moment. :)
It is no surprise that my little nephew Thomas, is my favourite scrapping subject. This latest Echo Park line was perfect for pictures of Thomas. Here are two pages done for Treasured Memories.
Thomas loves Lego and here he is with some of his creations.
I used this sketch by Laura Whitaker.
I love this sweet photo of Thomas and Mia. Mia is happy to help with some ice-cream face clean up. haha
I didn't use a sketch for this page but instead was inspired by the very talented Monique Liedtke. Her work always amazes me. This is the beautiful page that inspired me. Thank you Monique for sharing your amazing creations! I encourage my readers to check out Monique's blog. :)
Up next for me might be putting together some cards from kits. I'm feeling crafty. Hope you are too!
I've been playing with paper again. Here's my latest creations for Treasured Memories. This line was perfect for some spring themed photos and this bird paper was perfect for photos of my swallows! They will be back before we know it. :)
I used this sketch from Page Drafts.
Next up a bloom on one of my frontyard bushes.
Here's the sketch by Susan Stringfellow.
I'll be back soon with some pages featuring Thomas.
Time to get back to this poor old ignored blog of mine. What have I been doing lately? Well I'm still working through "the life changing magic of tidying up". I thought I was done last August but apparently not. I've been organizing and purging and doing a bit of deep cleaning. It must be spring! I've been knitting crazy amounts of dishcloths and not too many charity hats. I've been spending some time at The White House. Yes a new season of House of Cards is out and we are hooked. I've also been trying to win a trip to Toronto to visit the set of Schitt's Creek. I'm sure that my chances are next to none but it would be a chance of a lifetime!! Okay enough dreaming. It's time I posted the last four LO's that I created for Treasured Memories.
First I worked with some Prima. Such an amazing traditional vibe and perfect for wedding photos. Love this photo of the girls.
I used this sketch from Kristine Davidson.
Then there was this photo that Rob took of Diane.
This is an old sketch off of the My Mind's Eye blog. An oldie but a goodie.
Next I got to play with this really fun and modern collection by Simple Stories. Here's me and Tom last fall. It was such a fun day.
This line was so perfect for a picture of Sophie. Such a sweetie!
Both of these pages were done using sketches from Kristine Davidson's eBooks.
That's all I have in the scrappy department. Hope you are all feeling creative and recording your memories. :)
