Scrapbooking, Make a Wish

MakeAWish1
 
The past two months (actually more like three) have really been a whirl wind.  I can't remember what I've blogged about so here is the short version.  In March we found out our landlords wanted to sell the house we rented.  We looked at renting and buying.  Then we ended up buying our first house about two months ago.  We had to redo all the floors so it took two weeks before we could move in.  About a week after we moved in we had to fly to New York to throw a surprise 50th wedding anniversary for my parents.  It was a huge success.  We flew back and unpacked house for a few days before we flew again.  This time to Michigan for a wedding my daughter and I were in.  The little guy got sick.  We flew back and went to the dr.  Little guy is better.  Now I can finally enjoy my house and work on unpacking and getting some quality scrapbooking time in!  Woot!
 
Now, I finally am able to work on some challenges.  I made this supper bright and happy page for The Paper Girls Rub-ons challenge.  I love rub-ons but never end up using them.  I used four on this layout!

Two of the rub-ons were from some Heidi Grace fairy ones I've had for a long time.  I have had a hard time using them because they are just too cute.  I also used a relatively new heart geo tag one from Amy Tangerine.  I was actually really disappointed with how difficult it was to get that one to rub onto my page.  It definitely did not transfer well at all.  Major bummer.

The last rub-on is the little ladybug in the lower right corner.  I wish I had a thousand more of those little guys that I could sneak onto ever single page I make!

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
