The Money Shot

Hey all!  I wanted to share with you a layout I created for the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival hosted each fall by Creative Scrapbooker Magazine.  It’s actually up on their Facebook Page today!

Registration for Carnival starts August 1st for this year.  Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend this year (the first time in 7 years) as that is the week that we are at Disneyland with our son.  Check out their blog for more information.  This is such a fun time!

 

I love this layout!  The journaling reads:  : We just have to have that one shot of the singer’s butt that just makes you snap it and say, oh Yeah! That’s the Money Shot”

We can’t help it, whenever we got to a concert we have to take a pic of the singers butts..it’s like a bad habit we can’t break!

I want to say the DP is Echo Park, but it might be October Afternoon…

Some of these lovelies include Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw,  Christ Young, Rob Thomas & Keith Urban!

UYS Challenge #257 Spring is in the Air!

Morning all!  I am fresh-ly back from an amazing weekend spent with the uber-talented ladies of Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine and their 2nd annual Crop & Create Calgary.  What an amazing time and the love and inspiration these ladies share with us is just incredible, not to mention their AMAZING sponsors!

Today for our Spring is in the Air Challenge on the Use Your Stuff blog I want to share a layout that I created over the weekend in Vicki Boutin’s Cluster’s, Bubbles and Layers, Oh My! Class.  In this class, Vicki walked us through some fun techniques for creating little clusters and adding dimension with layers and (your friend) foam dots!  We used an amazing kit of papers and embellishments from Pink Paislee’s Moonstruck collection.  This collection is not normally colors that I work with but after creating some amazing layouts I really do love it!

This is the single layout that we created and I thought that those beautiful fussy cut flowers are a perfect indicator of spring.  We used an awesome technique with black paint and dishsoap – blowing bubbles (so much fun!) that you can see on the white cardstock layer.

This layout also used a bunch of rub ons from the collection (I had forgotten how much fun rub ons can be) as well as some of the ephemera pack!

Woohoo! We got to see and play with some of  these at C&C and they are freaking fantastic!

Thanks for stopping by!

Fall Fun

It is another challenge up at the Use Your Stuff blog today!  It’s Fall Y’all…although here in Calgary, it’s more wintery than fall-y 🙂

I created this layout using some old Hot off The Press papers that I wanted to use up.  I’ve had them forever!  The title is printed off of the internet and the leaves were done with my  EK Success maple leaf punch! (this is one of my favorite punches).   All the rest of the little embellies are from my stash!  I hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to play along with us on the blog this week!20161104_085802

3rd Grade

Hey there! It’s a new challenge from our new DT member Beth on the Use Your Stuff blog!  Her challenge is to use your favorite punches on your project.

I have this heart punch that I bought at a garage sale years ago for like a dime!  It’s one of my favorites because it just adds a pop of color to a layout or card…just a little finishing touch.

Here is my layout for you this week.  I have been trying to use up the kits that I have and have been putting together and this one is made from the Yes, Please line from Amy Tangerine for American Crafts!  I love the colors in this line!

Be sure to stop by the blog and join in on the fun!

Baby Mine…

February is the month of love.  We celebrate love in all its forms and shapes…..one of those is the love a mother has for her child!

I had wanted to have a child for a long time, so when I found out that I was pregnant with my son, my heart began to overflow with love…before he was even born!  I didn’t even know I could love someone so much that I had never met!

This week at Use Your Stuff, we are being inspired by a love song!  The love song that I chose was called Baby Mine by Bette Midler from the Beaches Soundtrack – one of my all time favorite movies!  In the movie, that song is playing as one of the main characters is getting ready for the birth of her baby and they are decorating the nursery…I new I wanted to use it for the inspiration for my layout.

My favorite line is:

                          Baby mine, don’t you cry.
                          Baby mine, dry your eyes.
                          Rest your head close to my heart,
                          Never to part, baby of mine.

 
The pictures in this layout were taken about a week before my son was born and then about a week after…it felt like I was waiting forever, but oh was he worth it!  He is still one of the things that I love the absolute most in this world!
 
I hope you will join us on the blog today and see how the other ladies were inspired this week.
