1st Grade

I ordered this large 12x12 picture from I made the little filmstrip look with my Bind-it-all. I used my swirly doodles stencil with my signo white pen & glossy black fabric paint. I used my new Pooh font Cricut cartridge for the title. Since I homeschool that means I am also the school photographer, lol. So these are our 1st grade school pictures for her school book.

Tinker Belles

This was the t-ball team from fall 2007. I used ribbon, a few flowers & brads & lace with brads. I used my Swirly Doodles stencil from Hot Off The Press & I used my White Signo pen.


This is the title page for Parker's t-ball/softball album. The design is from a sketch by Lucy Chesna. My friend Cheryl from our meet up groups made the cool blue tags on her computer. I added flowers & rhinestones.

Log Ride

This was Parker's first log ride, she said she loved it but she was a little tense. :) This was from a sketch. I painted the chipboard flowers & tag with regular acrylic paint & added buttons & ribbon.

My Friend

This was done for a contest called So You Think You Can Scrap.
This was for round 2. We had to create a layout based on the colors of our favorite ice cream! Mine is chocolate chip cookie dough at Baskin Robbins & my daughters is strawberry, & since most of my layouts are about her I combined our colors & this is what I came up with. I weaved the middle strip of Basic Grey papers, added a chipboard swirl, flowers, die cut flowers, a large piece of ric a rac, buttons, a piece of cardboard under the picture, inking & doodling. I also inked the flower in the middle with brown & I inked it onto the background of my cardstock for a neat effect. I made the picture of Parker & little Sam in sepia tone.


This was a fast easy one. I inked these large chipboard swirls with my distressing ink, vintage photo. Then just added flowers & buttons. This was a sketched picture from one of those machines at Chuck E. Cheese.

Thoughts of Days Gone by

This is an awesome picture of my great Aunt, probably from the late 40's early 50's? This layout was made from a 'scrap pack' on there is a challenge you can enter & she sends you a pack (everyone gets the same one) you have to do a layout with the things you receive. It was very challenging but this is what I came up with.

Hannah Montanna & Billy Ray--Halloween

This was 2007 & I still dress to match Parker for Halloween & she wanted to be Hannah last year! I thought it would be awful but it wasn't too bad being Billy Ray! LOL!!! People knew who we were! This was a sketch from I used ribbons, buttons, cut stars out of paper, inking & glitter alphabet for the Halloween word.


Parker cut off 11 inches of hair & we donated it to Locks of Love & her new cut was so sassy & she just swished her hair around all day. So I wanted a 'sassy' layout. For the tinted picture I went to to alter the photo, they have cool fun stuff & it is free! I used a border punch, ribbon & some felt flowers.
