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.

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, Melt My Heart

  I've got one more rainbow inspired layout to share. This time I played along with Scrap Our Stash . I used the following five items up from the list. 1. Stripe Paper (I may have a rainbow stripe addiction when it comes to paper) 2. Paper Clip (the orange arrow at the top) 3. Wood Veneer (the cute arrow) 4. Flair (I've got two.  The circle heart from Amy Tangerine and the square sunshine from a Freckled Fawn Kit) 5. Enamel Dots (I've got a few green in one corner and a few orange in another)   I used a bunch of pop dots on this layout to keep some of the corners up and to give the clouds some layering.  I kind of forgotten just how handy those little things can be in giving depth to a page. I also decided to keep my journaling hidden since this page has so much going on pattern wise with no good breaks.

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
