For my mom

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday...(happy birthday, mom!) and I put together a couple of layouts for her of her grandkids.

I love this line by My Minds Eye. My mom's place is decked out in blacks and reds and I really wanted to keep that theme going. This paper worked so well...and it really is absolutely gorgeous!!

Of course, I had to use my trademark butterfly punch :)

I used the same line with this layout of Gavin. I really do love how this one turned out.

I've been on a spiral flower kick lately...I love how pretty they turn out!

The finishing touch was putting these layouts in black shadowbox frames. They looked so good I wanted to keep them for myself!! My mom got her birthday gift a day early and she seemed to be very pleased with them.

Thanks for looking!!

cheap thrills

Who knew a cheap pair of Groucho Marx glasses would be so much fun?

I bought Bekah a pair a few days ago and she loves them! In fact, the next day she just HAD to wear them everywhere we went. Everywhere ended up being Gavin's school and the store. I'm sure she ended up being known as the girl with the Groucho Marx glasses!

Of course, Gavin had to try on the glasses, too.

Woah, where did the vampire come from?! Isn't he the cutest little vampire, though?

Save your packaging!

Scrapbook embellishes seem to come in packaging that almost rival the goodies themselves! Be sure to save your packaging because there are many creative things you can do with them...

Like this flower container from Prima. The container in it's plain form is great, but adding some flowers, ribbon and patterned paper makes it absolutely fabulous!!

I used more Fancy Pants paper in this project (love this line, can't you tell?) Isn't it amazing what you can do with an empty scrapbook container? You could fill this with candies, or jewelry...the possibilities are endless!

(Sorry I don't have a step by step tutorial for this one...I was doing this as a last minute project and didn't even think to take pictures of the process until it was too late.)

she liked butterflies

The new prompt is up at Scrap that Baby! This time, in honor of Grandparent's Day that was a few days ago, the challenge is all about baby with the grandparents.

I chose to do my layout about my great-grandma Lu Lu.

I used lots of Fancy Pants paper in this one...I love this line!!

The journaling reads:

This was my great-grandma Lu-Lu. I was only 4 in this picture, so I don't remember too many things about her. I remember she liked butterflies and cookies. She lived in the downstairs of my grandparent's home. She travelled to many different places when she was younger because she was a stewardess.
Her couch was my safe place when people were mean.
She loved me and I loved her.

I love making those paper flowers!!

I never realized just how much Bekah looks like me when I was younger...we have the same smile!

Thanks for looking, and be sure to play in the challenge at Scrap that Baby!

Bekah Boo's favorites

The new prompt is up at Scrap that Baby! This time it's all about doing a layout in the form of a top ten list. I chose to do mine on Bekah's favorite things right now. I had fun doing this LO, even if it was a last minute thing.

Sorry this post is so short, I had a very late night last night and I am just beat! Off to bed for me :)
