Mommy & Baby Layout

Hello everyone.  I've been m.i.a. lately, I know, sooooo much going on and no time or mojo to scrap, really.  But yesterday I had a little energy and a little time and I wanted to create.  I decided to look to a sketch I had on my desktop and it developed into a super cute page of my little Sofi.  I had these two adorable pictures of her with her baby doll.  She LOVES playing with babies and I love that she's so cute and girly, that way.  So I wanted to make a page that was just as cute and girly as her.  I grabbed the paper from my flower paper stash (who knows how old it is) and it just worked with the pictures.  I even got to use a bunch of flowers.  I added buttons to the center and used some scrapper's floss for the centers.  I welded the title on my gypsy (of course, lol!) and added doodlebug glitter to make it sparkle.  The pics are not the best, but I'm having a huge problem with my computer - it's full (of pictures, that is - didn't know it was possible to do that, but I have!)  Here's the layout, take a look...

I hope to be able to create some more this weekend, I'm on vacation - hooray!  
Thanks for stopping by!

Ice Skating Layouts

Hello everyone!  I was able to work on some layouts this past weekend with some good friends.  The first one I had sketched out on my gypsy a while ago and I had forgotten about it.   I remembered about it and decided to actually create the layout.  I like the way it turned out.  I used a bunch of different cartridges - A Child's Year for the mom and boy, Winter Woodland for the title, Winter Frolic for the Brrrr, Home Decor for the swirl, and Accent Essentials for the snowflakes.  All the white cuts are from glitter paper to give it that snow sparkle.  I had a lot of photos so I made a collage for the left page.  

Here is the original sketch (which I modified some)
All my white cuts...

In using this DCWV winter stack that I love, I came across this great paper with the adorable penguin skating.  I decided to do another ice skating layout with some pictures from last year of my son ice skating for the first time...

And finally, I made a sign to take to the Walk for Autism which my family and some students participated this weekend.  The puzzle piece with the heart is from the Don Juan cartridge.  The rest is just my handwriting.  Still, i wanted to share. 

I'm going to enter the first layout in the Cooking With Cricut swirl/twirl challenge this week.
I'm glad you stopped by and hope you return soon :)
Have a great week!
