My daughter's water color artwork

She had to use an image from a magazine as inspiration...not sure what the original looked like, but I was pretty impressed with her finished product.

National Scrapbook Day

Instead of scrapping today, I have been Spring cleaning. My plan is to finish off the Spring cleaning in my Scrapbook room. See, I think I need some motivation to get me back into scrapping. I am in sort of a funk. I look at my pictures, then I look at my papers and embellishments...then I go back and forth...and NOTHING!! I have some wonderful photos and Cricut Carts that I just can't wait to work with, but nothing seems to get me inspired. So today I will share some layouts from a Scrapbook that I made as a gift for a friend two years ago. Happy Scrapbook Day!!

Sweet Pete

I used my Paper Lace Cart on this layout-the font and the butterflies.  There are so many different ideas I keep coming up with for this cart, but haven't found the perfect pics yet.  I was digging thru some old photos in frames and decided this one needed to go in my scrapbook instead of in a box...

Little Girl to Young Woman

This is a layout I did of my grandmother as a little girl, a teenager, and a young woman.  I just love these photos and this textured paper is one of my favorites.

I survived!!

My daughter had her first boy/girl party and invited 25 fourteen year olds.  We ended up with a total of 17 kids.  I can honestly say I would rather host a party for 17 fourteen year olds than 6 twelve year olds any day of the week!  They were very well behaved.

My Brother and I-San Gabriel, CA~1976

After starting many layouts and not completing any of them...I finally finished one!!  Stickles glitter glue is my new best friend.  You will find it all over this layout.  I used it as a border, on the flowers, on the tittle above the 'i' in Cherish, and even on the background paper.

Goodies for you!!! Lucky # 12 on March 12th I turn thirty-eight, just 12 years shy of 50 (GASP!!!).  I have a lot I would like to get accomplished before then, hence the dramatic GASP!  Time flies by so quickly.  So I better stop the procrastinating and get BUSY!!  I am hoping to get some help from some bloggers.  I love inspiration and there are tons of talented scrappers out there.  I would love to see some of your work.  I would like to see if I can get 12 more followers by March 12th.  I was collecting this stash for a stash swap and the site closed down suddenly before the swap occurred (I also have some paper-not shown in picture- and I am sure I will add more goodies). Being the procrastinator that I am, I did not join the new site to get signed up for the new swap.  If you would like a chance to receive my 'unswapped' stash, just leave a comment and become a follower (if you aren't already).  HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!

Need to get busy...

I really need to get busy using my Cricut...I even have a Cart that I haven't even opened and few that I have opened, but not yet used.  I am really anxious to use the Paper Lace Cart...I have some ideas....but...I am such a procrastinator....

...wish I could be walking along the beach

...with another 70 % chance of snow for tomorrow, walking on the beach in my bare feet is most likely not going to happen, unless I jump on a plane some time between now and I guess I will try to finish up some of these layouts that I have started and not completed...
