Scrapbooking, Wild Thing

Ok, I think I might be losing my mind.  I have so many projects to work on and things to do.  I need more hours in a day!  It doesn't help that I gave up and just went to bed at 9:30 and slept till 8am!  That NEVER happens.  Nobody woke me up in the middle of the night and I had no crazy dreams or anything!   It was a solid long night of sleep and boy did I need it.  Hopefully, I will have the energy to finish making birthday presents and can get a start on Halloween costumes.  I already caved in and just bought some curtains for our house instead of making some.

I have managed to get a little bit of scrapbooking in.  Here is my make it Monday layout for the Memory Nest.   My little guy is becoming such a character.  He LOVES those tigers in the photo.  He crawls all over the house with them.  Somehow, they always find their way under my feet.  The painted lines behind the photo are supposed to be tiger stripes.  At first I made them a bit to short, so you couldn't see them when I started layering stuff on top, so I had to go back and re paint them. I took this photo in the early morning.  The sun was just bursting into our house.  The fall brings lots of morning fog out here in Seattle, so sunny mornings are a rare treat this time of year.

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

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
