Drive 'Em Buggies

Here is another kit from my friend Tami. She creates these kits in mind to use with Disney photos but they can be used with non Disney stuff as well.

 It has been a while since I completed a Disney layout! I found these great photos of my son and I riding the Drive 'Em Buggies at California Adventure. I thought the colors were perfect for this! Added some red Thickers for the title and an arrow journaling spot. 

Really missing my Disneyland time! They have opened Carsland and added all kinds of attractions at California Adventure since we moved that I can't wait to experience! My mom is treating my daughter and I to the Treasure Box Disney on Ice show next month, so at least I can get a bit of a Disney fix!

4Oth Wedding Anniversary Invitation

My mother and father-in-law are celebrating their fortieth wedding anniversary next month. We are having a surprise party for them to celebrate and I made the invitations for the event. I have to admit that everyone that was invited isn't going to receive one of these. Way too many people invited to do that. Just those non-computer savvy individuals :)

I picked up these doilies and ran them through my printer. Made me a little nervous since that is how I destroyed my last printer.... a nasty jam. Then I die cut silver foil paper with the Sizzlit alpha- Round Table. I stamped the sentiment with the Ali Edwards Kids are Cool stamp set by Technique Tuesday.
I cut some pennants and punched some hearts and stapled it with my Tim Holtz tiny attacher.

Since this is a surprise, please don't share this with my in-laws. :) I made an extra one for them to keep.

Since the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show is No Rules! I submitted this for that challenge. There is still time to share what you have made!

31 Things- Uniform

Here is another layout from my 31 Things class.  I am trying to finish up these so that when the 31 More Things class at Big Picture Classes opens later this year I am ready!

I have six journaling prompts to complete for this class and most of them I have been putting off because I think they are going to be harder for me. 

I have also stumbled upon some new digital elements that were free that I have been playing around with. This class has opened me up to doing more digital scrapbooking. I don't know if I like that yet or not. There are some benefits, but I don't think they out weigh my love for paper!

More layouts from this class to come soon!

Our Backyard Apple Tree

I used a kit from my friend at to create this layout.

When I saw the flowers in this kit, it made me think of the apple blossoms on our apple tree in our backyard. It was a nice coincidence that my son was wearing read to match!

I used my Smash date stamp and an EK success label punch to add the date for all of the photographs. Used some Cosmo Cricket alpha sticker and some Thickers for the title. Used an Ali Edwards stamp for the "life is good" sentiment.

I loved the fabric/canvas leaves and flowers in this kit. Added such great texture to this project.
