Sharing Love

Since I was away for a scrappy weekend I didn't have access to my computer for journaling --- I needed to journal the "old fashioned" way... with markers. To add visual interest I cut the journaling into strips and adhered them to the page. What fun journaling ideas do you have to share with me?

Lost Tooth!

When Megan joined the tooth fairy club - we were driving... she bit into a pancake...but unlike her sister, Megan did not panic....and I just happened to have my camera with me. I think I need to always have a camera with these bugs... so strapped in her carseat Megan poses for pictures after loosing her first tooth. (Don't worry I waitied until a red light to snap the pictures.) I used a Circle Lace Paper by the Memory Cafe

and a kit of stuff from chatterbox I have had sitting around forever. It was so much fun to put together!

Bath Buddies

I have never used a full 12 X 12 transparency on a layout before --- I am now officially addicted. I love how this layout looks! The transparency adds so much visual image and the colors are bright. It will be perfect when I add the picture of the bugs!

More MOSD Days!

Here is another layout documenting my days with MOSD... this is the second time Alison and I were together face to face in February 2008.
For this layout I used Stickles (AGAIN!!!) to add some red to the black and white flowere paper. I love stickles! The "Scrapbowl" vendor tag was actually my ID for the event, I removed it from the plastic cover and used it as an instant page accent!

The internet makes so much possible....

Imagine two strangers meeting online and starting a business together... it happened to me! Back in 2007 I was blessed to meet face to face with my business partner for the first time. We met in Las Vegas for the Memory Trends Trade Show. The picture on this layout was taken by my husband who witnessed the whole crazy meeting... My time with MOSD is over (Everything has a season) but it will always be an experience that shaped me --- so this layout goes into my Book of Me!

Some fun things I did on this layout... I used a title Frame by the Memory Cafe and I also hand journaled around the picture. I did a lot of hand journaling this past weekend so I could finish my pages - i was happy with the results!

I'm Back!

What a wonderfull scrappy weekend! I cannot thank my friends enough for their generous gift. I got an incredible amount of work done, laughed until my sides hurt and I got to eat so much good food I think I gained a million pounds!

Here is a page I did using foam letters and stars --- so they don't look quite so cheesy, I used stickles over them. Stickles are so much fun - I took stickles up for sale and sold a record number of bottles. THANKS Ladies!
