Scrapbooking, Live Life

LiveColor1
 
Here is a page I just made for Paper Lovers Studio Layout Sketch.  I had to play around a bit with the sketch because I really wanted to use that doodlebug journaling card.  It just works so well with that photo.
It is really getting interesting trying to scrapbook with my ever growing belly.  I went to my Dr. yesterday and she said that the little guy is about 8 and a half pounds.  I still have ten days more for my due date!  Yikes!  So, my belly is beyond huge now and I end up sitting so far from my desk that I can't reach much of anything.  My Dr. even tried a few things to get me to go into labors since he is getting so large, but he is just a bit too high up still so it didn't work.  Oh that large baby family gene.  Nobody on my side of the family has small babies.  I'm guessing he is going to come on Tuesday when I have to pick my mom up from the airport.  It will be so nice to have her around.  That's the only thing about living on the west coast, all the family is back east.

Anyways...I just used up a bunch of random stuff I had within reach on this layout.  I also did some stamping with the background and used the stamp that was still sitting on my desk and never got put away.  Lazy? Yup!

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, First Solo

I can't believe how much time has gone by since I last scrapbooked.  Well, I finally have been inspired to scrap again and I found a fun challenge with a very happy mood board that got my creative juices going again. Recently, my daughter got to dance her first solo on a stage.  I had only seen her dance this when she was first learning this.  She had a broken wrist at the time, so I never had seen some of the moves until she danced it on stage.  It had been over a year since she was on a stage and she has never been on one all by herself.  I wasn't sure how she was going to do.  I could tell she was getting nervous, but she did a beautiful job.  I was a very proud mommy.  =)  I really wanted to add one more picture, so I added this photo on a pull out tab.  I always enjoy the pages that have a little interactive part to them. While the paper I used for this layout was all new, all the embellishments are things that I have had for a long time.  I used some old stickers, wooden

Scrapbooking, Pumpkin Patch

  I loved how the water color background turned out for my son's page so much, that I had to try it again.  This time, I thought I would make a two page layout for my daughter's book since it has been a very long time since I've tried one.   I wanted to scrap these pumpkin patch pictures from last year because we were just about to go to the pumpkin patch again and I thought they would help me get into the fall mood.  I just love fall, but the weather in the pacific northwest is so unpredictable this time of year.  You never know if there is going to be a sunny day to go pumpkin picking so you have to take advantage of one when it comes!   Scrap Our Stash had their Tic Tac Toe challenge again, so I thought I would give it a go.  I went right down the center and did 3 buttons, decorative pins, and wood veneers.  I scattered buttons randomly onto the page.  I used up the little joy pin from Little Yellow Bicycle that I had laying around still.  I also added a li
