Scrapbooking, Yummy Bunny

This is another page that I made for a challenge on scrapbook day.  I actually started off with a sketch challenge, but the layout just wasn't working for me.  The layout had too many restrictions and was too symmetrical for my taste.  So, I ditched some of my photos and moved on to another challenge that only required the use of a homemade pinwheel.

This page turned out way better then what it started out as.  I was happy with how my little yellow pinwheel turned out.  I attached the pinwheel to a toothpick that I colored blue.  Then, I added some sparkle to my page and stamped some clouds.  I also got a chance to use a color magic frame from Heidi Swapp that I had been dying to try out.  Some of my ink did stick onto the gray part of the frame a little bit and I'm not sure why, but it still was fun to ink it up.  I'm not sure if it was enough to sell me on to her color magic papers though.  I also tried out my sew ribbon shoelace tool for the first time.  It didn't come out as smoothly looking as when I have used my scalloped one.

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
