Yeah - I finally got some scrapping done!!! I was so excited! I could have stayed in my "studio" (aka the basement) all night but alas - I had to go play wii with my family!!

These pictures are from our annual Memeorial Day BBQ at my in-laws! We always eat, play games outside, and take our annual photo shoot! It is always so much fun! This year we roasted marshmallows that evening as well!
I used some papers from a family pack that I received from Christmas. I wish I knew where my mom-in-law got it! (I will have to ask!) I love blues and browns together! The kit had papers, ribbons, punch out saying, and brads, etc that all coordinated! All I added to the first layout is a flower to the top!

The next pics are from our impromptu photo shoot! My sister in law has the perfect backyard for these pics. We have always done them in front of her birch tree but decided to try out the fence this year! (of course we were facing the sun!)

I used some of the same papers from the packet I mentioned above. I used some light brown cardstock from my scrap stash as a mat for the pictures. I added some chipboard flowers that I painted and embossed with clear embossing powder. I also painted and embossed the green leaves. I cut the stem from green cardstock. The ribbons at the bottom are from the kit and I cut the letters on my cricut.

It felt so good to actually get something on paper and get the mojo running again! I will post more pics tomorrow of some of the other layouts I finished this weekend!

Bundle up and stay warm!

  1. Very nice and I think the feathers coming out of the top add just the right touch! :) J/K
    I like the colors and your mother would be so impressed with the use of staples.
