Scrapbooking, Tulip Love

Once again I was inspired by a challenge blog, but this time it was the paper girls challenge.  The challenge was April showers brings May flowers so you can use raindrops, umbrellas, or flowers.  Now rainy season is finally starting to come to and end so I decided to focus on flowers.  Of course, the photos I used was from the tulip festival that happens every year in Mount Vernon, WA in April.  Out here in the NW it is more like rain October-March brings flowers in April and May.  Though, I might have jinxed myself because it rained this evening.  Maybe I should have done a page on Moose's rain boots.....or I can save that for a sunny day.

I had a lot of fun stitching on this page.  I stitched a cute heart on the orange paper and then cut the paper and stitched it to "fix" it back together.  I also used a ribbon and weaved it through the yellow paper.  The ribbon I used was a little on the big size, but I really liked the rich purple color on the yellow.  My journaling is hidden in the little pocket.  I figured I had enough going on with this page.


  1. Oh my these photos are so precious! And how lucky to have so much rain. I live in the southeast corner of Colorado (almost Kansas) and it is so dry here. We are basically in a drought. It's so tough for the farmers. Anyway! Thanks so much for linking up this great layout to my challenge over at The Paper Girls!

Fish Finger Glove Puppet

I just love being back east and being with all of my family for Christmas, but I don't like the travel and I really don't like the germs.  We managed to bring back with us some lovely east coast germs.  Little Moose took it the hardest and still is a little bit sick.  Anyways, I finally got the chance to get back onto my computer and I just have to share with you what my sister-in-law made for us.  There are a bunch so I'll share one every day this week! I love the bright colors of the fishes!  Each glove puppet came with a poem.  They are just to cute!

Valentine's Day Wreath

Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own.  So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!

Scrapbooking, Adore

    Every once in a while, I make a layout that I absolutely love and this is one of them.  I think it might be the rainbowness of it all that I love.  This is really a random photo of my daughter that I took while we were waiting for the bus.  I played with the photo on my phone and made it more rainbowy.  I really like how it came out, so I printed it out for my project life, but then I decided it needed its own page.  It really is a random page for a random photo.     This is my page for the Memory Nest . The circles on the sketch were my major inspiration.  I felt that they would make a fun background.  At first, I changed the circles to triangles and then I noticed all these old frames on my desk.  I'm a chipboard frame hoarder. lol.  I thought most of the frames were really ugly or they had patterns that I would never use.  At first, I was going to just paint the frames white, but then I decided to make them gray.  I'm glad I made them gray because now they
