Park Concerts 2015

Summer is almost over and I did a scrapbook layout about the park concerts we attended. Every year our little city host free concerts in the park. Last year was our first year going and we had so much fun. So this year, my goal was to go to all over them and we did.

Here are a few pages I made celebration Summer music!

I got the banner idea from a fellow Two Pea Refugee. Loved crumbling them up and distressing.

I also was happy to use up more of my MME 6x6 paper that has been sitting around.

The stars are silver and gold metallic. A nice touch!

Now here is the other layout I did. Loved adding the little flyer about the concerts to the page.

Isn't the grass darling? LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pink Lipstick Layout

Happy Friday! Hope you all are enjoying your day. Here is another layout I did with some of the same hand cut flowers and banners I used on the previous pages. Once I started cutting these flowers I got on a roll! LOL!

This page is celebrating my hot pink lipstick that I totally forgot I had. I started wearing it this Summer and it's been a fun. Do you have a favorite Summer lipstick? Funny how make-up and hair dos can make us feel good.

On this page, I used a warm woodgrain paper with those pretty gems, the floral paper, flowers and a little pink paper on the corners and for the banners. Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by this week to see my three scrapbook pages and have a happy weekend!

Laugh Scrapbook Layout

Today, I am back with another scrapbook page. I just love this one. Doesn't it feel happy? :)
I had fun using the vintage script paper, that bright yellow stripped paper and the hand cut flowers and banners. I got these papers from Michael's and it was nice using parts of them on several pages.
Plus wrinkling the paper was a fun and mess touch. Take a look.
I also added some glitter glue to the green leaves.

The journaling say, " Seeing all this curly hair makes me smile, giggle...

... and laugh. I love how my hair is free and doing it's own thang."
Thanks for stopping by and I will share another soon. Take care all!

My New "Do"

Happy August! As this month has rolled in I have had a scrapbooking craze. I made several pages that I will be sharing here over the next several days.

This first one is about my new hair style. I wanted to do a series of pages on my hair. Deciding to wear my hair naturally curly was a big step and surprisingly emotional.  My hair is so thick and long so I was nervous how my hair would respond with no blow driers or other heat tools. But I watched several videos and I gave it a try. So get ready to see lots of pics of me smiling and happy. :)

I loved hand cutting the flowers from some patterned paper I had and also, using the colored paper clips.  The background paper looks like a corkboard and I want it to look like I pinned these pictures on the board.

This is my first day right before I washed my hair.

This was the first day with my new curly hair.

Loved putting my journaling in this little envelop.

I painted these letters and then added some glitter glue on top. Love it!

Hope you enjoyed and stop by later this week for more scrapbook pages.

Art & Tote Bag

Happy August! I recently wanted to try my art and painting on t-shirts and tote bags. I had an idea for a tote bag featuring my mom's art. Yes, she is an artist and so good at it. I knew she would be so excited to see her art on something different like this and boy was she excited!!!!

How did I do this you asked? I used iron-on transfer paper I got from Michael's. I love this stuff and it is so easy to use on fabric. All you do is print your image on the paper and iron-on. That's it! Then, I added some flowers, jewels and some burgundy tulle.

Take a look.

I loved using this black puffy paint to write the words.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this fun idea and I can't wait to make more bags and t-shirts. Have a nice day!

Another Chipboard Mini 4 MIL

Hey all! Today I am up with another chipboard mini album I did as a gift for my mother-in-law. I got it from Michael's and I just love the delicate doily that came with it.

I painted it all white and then orange, yellow or pink on certain pages. This really gave it a soft look. Also, this was special because my husband wrote the sentiments and I did the deco. So happy to have him contribute. Thanks Honey! :) She loved it and I loved making it for her. She is such a sweet lady.

Take a look at some of the pages!

I love the tulle and the crystal bling mixed with the flowers.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Mom's Gift Album

It has been a long time since I have been here and it feels good to be back. Sometimes, my creative mojo has to recharge and it is good to have it back. I finished a  chipboard mini album this week for my Mom's birthday.

The album came from Michael's, the flowers were from my Anna Griffin card kit and the bling came from (well, um...) well they came from some where. LOL! I just loved the colors and the way it all turned out.

She loved all the pictures and of course the design. That makes me happy that she was so elated!

Take a look!

Adding the tulle was a nice way to soften it up even more.

These ladies are my grandmother and great grandmother. Amazing women!

My mom on here wedding day.

I hope you enjoyed this tribute to my mom and the women who helped to shape me. Take care and have a nice day.
