Scrapbooking, Meow

 
I have had a much quieter week after the our great upstairs flood.  I even got this layout done for the Memory Nest.  It looks really blue on the computer, but in person it has more green  and teal tones to it.  Sometimes the computer can't bring the richness out.  This page is for my little guy and his beloved Meow.  Meow is the kitty's name and it goes everywhere with him.  He is so attached to his stuffies and blankets.  He is the complete opposite of my daughter who doesn't really form any attachment to things. 
 
Anyways, I used gel medium on the background to make the triangles, stars, and dots.  Then when it dried I used water colors to make the background.  After that I layered scraps of paper and put my embellishments down.  Overall this page came together quick for me and that usually doesn't happen.  I did print color companions to these black and white photos.  I wanted to make them flaps, but I messed up on the sizes so that didn't work out.  I'll keep the colored photos for my project life.  I  have been working on project life still, but I just haven't posted any of them lately.

 
As you can see, I rotated the layout.  I really wanted my title to go vertically down and that seemed to work best for my photos.
 
And it looks like flicker is doing some weird kind of sharing to my images now.  I'll have to try and fix that later. Gerrr.

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
