On a ROLL.....

A few more that I have created.  If you have followed my blog for awhile you will know that at the beginning of my boys school albums I always create their first page with their school picture.  Here I have used a conglomerate of scrapping supplies.  The paper line is the Fancy Pants school line.  My friend Andrea cut the viewmaster wheel with her silohette.  I want one so bad I can hardly stand it.  Some of the things she cuts are so awesome!  On my lists of must-haves!
I have use some October Afternoon embellies and the "First Grade" pack of embellishments, not sure what brand that is. 
 Another school layout for his book.  I usually type up the kids names and put on the second page, not sure what I am going to do this time.  I didn't really have enough papers to make the second page, so I just made a 1 pager.  Same papers and embellies as above.  It's always so hard to make a layout with the school pictures because they take up almost the whole page.
 Below is a layout that I lifted from Andrea.  We go back and forth, she lifts from me and I lift from her.  We have very similar scrapping styles and we both have boys (that are almost the same ages too) so many of our ideas are the same. I think this will be Dax's last year to go to the firestation, so I guess it was worth cutting out all o those flames and those little yellow firehat/axes, I thought I was going to take my scissors and stab myself at one point, I was so tired of cutting! LOL just kidding!
Enjoy, I have a few from Drew's book I can post, but I guess I need to get off my can and clean my house during this horrible rainstorm that has left us all home for the last 2 days!

I love scrapping...

I have so many that I haven't posted.  I find it daunting to take the pictues of my layouts and have to crop and add them to this blog. So I try to pick out my favorite ones to add.   I'm not best picture taker and my iphone seems to be the easiest mode at doing this.  So with that being said, if you ever want me to bring albums to the store.  I don't have a problem with that just ask.  I don't like to leave them over night at the store.  Bring your cameras and take all the pictures you'd like.
The above layout is from the photo shoot we had done in Texas at the train station.  I have several more of these to do, but I am waiting for the right mood to come along to get them done.  I have bought the papers, but just haven't done them.  I used the Good Life paper line from Fancy Pants.  The paper couldn't hve matched our pictures better! It was meant to be.  The cute banners are from a punch out sheet, so cute!
I had posted this cute layout several months back, but I had only taken a sneak peek.  Several ladies saw the layout in person and decided to copy it...thank you so much for that it is such a compliment.  I made sand with Viva decor gloss gel.  You simply mix a little sand with a little gel and smear it on with a popsicle stick~ I added small seashells that we found on the beach.  Love the pictures of Dax and his little friend Trista, they are best buds!

This layout idea was taken from a make n take from Treasured Memories.  I like the her layout but wanted to make it my own.  I changed the papers and added another row of circle (blue ones) to make it a little more frilly.  I added paper studio elf stickers, sequin holly and flowers and bling.  

I will try to add a few more soon.  Until then Happy Scrapping!

A Few New Layouts

 With this layout I used the October Afternoon carnival line.  I am also using this line for my January Class believe it or not. It has nothing to do with New Years, but I have made it work.  To see the January calendar class go to the Class tab above.
 These Christmas picture are from about 2 years ago.  I always do one Christmas layout for each child.  Usually they are in their Christmas PJ's and this is when we do our Christmas card photo shoot.  Which always starts with DRAMA (meaning kids are not cooperating and they end up either screaming at each other or crying) and ends with one great shot for our card! The sock monkeys are from Hobby Lobby, they have a great assortment of sock monkeys.  The papers are from Treasured Memories, but I don't remember the name of the line.  I embossed the snowflakes with Gold Wow Embossing powder.
This layout was a fun one to create.  I used the tree idea from a class I taught a few months back.  I love making trees like this.  I added buttons and crumpled up circles to give it dimension.  Yes you see the picture right- I did crack open a few sunflower seeds and took the see out and adhered half of the shell onto the layout.  I debated on doing this, not sure what will happen.  I believe the paper line was a nature line from October Afternoon and a camping line, not sure name...all papers are from Treasured Memories.

 This Fall line was from Bo Bunny.  We used this paper in our Fall Kitz Girlz Kits.  I made a different layout with the papers and added several dimensional embellishments to it.  Love the picture of Drew holding the baby goat!

I will be posting a few more in a bit.  Until then I hope you enjoy my layouts.
