Scrapping for fun, JustRite Stampers, and soccer...

Believe it or not, that is what I did this week. I scrapped for fun. It felt good to just sit down and scrap for me. It is not something I get the chance to do that much but it was fun to scrap with no rules. Here are the layouts I did.

This is my sisters dog Sadie! She is obsessed with diving in the pool after that ball. I took a ton of pictures of her doing this over and over again.


I have had a great time lately working with some different sized photos. Right now wallets are my favorite.

To create the wave I cut it out and added some liquid adhesive. I then sprinked crushed glass over it. I think it looks pretty cool!

I picked my nephew up for the day and took him and my boys strawberry picking, out for sundaes and a trip to play at the park. I just love this picture of them.

A few detail shots...I know, I went stickle crazy.

Look what came in the mail this week!

A box of wonderful goodies from JustRite Stampers. They were so generous and sent the design team at My Acrylic Album each a box of these to play with. How lucky are we. I can't wait to dig into these and play.

Last but not least this weekend was a soccer marathon weekend. I know most of them seem that way but between the 2 boys they had 6 games...ack! They each won 2 games and tied the 3rd. I had a ball taking pictures at their games...Action shots, especially sports photos are my favorite kind of pictures so here are a few of my favorites. By the way...the little blond guy is mine.






Here are a few from Nick's game.




Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!

Wow, great layouts, Mimi! I do almost all my scrapping just for me and just for fun now. Enjoy it so much more that way! Love your great action shots of the soccer field. Lucky girl with all those goodies, are they stamps? I'll have to check them out!

Fabulous layouts Meems! I particularly love the "One Fine Day" layout - whats the tree? Is that a rub on or chipboard? I've never seen that before and I love it!

I call that "Just Cos" scrapping - just because I want and just because I can! LOL. Great layouts and what a fantastic lot of goodies to receive. Our soccer season is over and summer sports are due to start soon.

Fantastic action shots of the boys playing soccer! You've got some beauts there for scrapping!

I love your latest L.O's...they are so bright & full of lovely detail! Great job!
It is great to scrap just 'because'...isn't it! I find that deadline & DT scrapping wears me down creatively sometimes :o)So I can totally relate!
Keep well!
Kim!

Thanks for your kind comments and well wishes on my blog! ScrapPink was a HUGE success. Another score against breast cancer!

Love the layouts, especially the One Fine Day one. The paper and the design is too cute!

Go Exeter! I have been watching a lot of those blue and white kids playing soccer lately too!
