This is a kit I put together from Just Kitting that couldn't have been more perfect for my photos! It helps when you know the designer, I suppose :) If you love paper piecing, you will love these kits!

Nichol Magouirk's Stamping class this month on Two Peas in a Bucket was about paper piecing a stamp image to use on a layout. I hadn't scrapped the photos from my baby shower and had this really cute Stampin' up stamp with umbrellas on it. Didn't realize how much cutting was going to be involved when I decided to use it! But I really like how it turned out.
Just as the photos were from 2006, the paper is even older! Glad to be able to use some of the old stuff from my stash!
Other Products used: Patterned paper- Gin-X, Chipboard alpha and coasters- Gin-X, Border punches- Martha Stewart and EKSuccess.

For this layout I was participating in two challenges from Shimelle. The first was Shimelle's sketch of the week.
Here is what I created.
The second was to "find a creative way to document a holiday memory that’s currently missing from your scrapbooks. Feelings, thoughts, memories hidden behind the pictures. It doesn’t have to be deep and angst-ridden. It can be light and breezy. But angst-ridden works, too, if that’s where you’re at! It’s all good."
Thanks to Shimelle I did two things, got the border paper out of my stash and into a scrapbook, and second, got the story behind my choice of stockings documented. Love that! Thank you, Shimelle!
Supplies used: Border Paper-Imaginisce, Journaling boxes-S.E.I, Letter stickers-American Crafts and Doodlebug (date), alpha stamps and mini square punch- Stampin' up.

Paired up with the stamp set that I won from their blog, Fabulous by Ali Edwards, I made this card. I also used the Studio AE March- Cake and Candles by Ali Edwards, which happened to be the set I got from my SIL. I fastened the twill with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher. Gotta love that tool!

This is a kit that I started a very long time ago. This layout made me realize that I tend to put pages together in different stages. Design, photos, title, journaling, date. Sometimes, like with this one, I pass over it for months before I decide and move onto the next step.
The title and journaling was holding up the completion of this kit. When I saw the Technique Tuesday Studio AE stamp set for July 2011, I finally knew I could finish it!
This was a kit by my friend Tami. Check out her blog www.playswellwithpaperkits.blogspot.com to see some of her more recent kits. She creates the best Disney inspired layouts that don't use Disney specific products.
This layout is of my DH and I at Animal Kingdom in Disney World. This trip was the first time we had had the chance to use our first digital camera and my DH thought the gorilla was a great test subject for testing the camera out. I think he took some really great photos!
