K&P DT LO's, MAA is live and more...

This month's kits at My Kits & Pieces were so fun and I had a ball working with the October Afternoon goodies. Be sure to stop by and check them out.

I recently did a few LO's I thought I would share. This is my adorable niece Gabi, we spent a fun day together and I just love this picture of her.

I came across a great sketch...I think it is a Pagemaps and dug into some Sassafrass for this picture of my neice and boys on the same day.

My Acrylic Album new website is now live. You need to check out the great acrylic designs...I am just loving the new skull and crossbones album, with 2 boys this is a must have for me. You can get it here.
Friday, August 1st is Serendipity Scrapbooks reveal day so be sure check back! Thanks for stopping by and happy scrapping!

Some old, some new, and a few favorites!

I have not had time to scrap since last week so I thought I would just share a few layouts from my stash. Hope you like them!
This is a LO of my adorable nephew Jake. I took him on his first trip strawberry picking this summer and boy did he love it!

My sweet neice Gabi, swimming at my sister's house. This girl is going to be a real beauty some day! I actually scraplifted myself for this LO. Have you ever tried that, well if you have not be sure to check out the crop this weekend at My Kits & Pieces for my scraplift yourself challenge.

And here it the LO that I scraplifted.

I just took these pictures a few weeks ago on a hot day when the kids pulled out the baby pool for the first time in years. They played for 2 1/2 and I just had to take some pictures of the two of them.

This is a favorite LO of mine! We spend so much of our summertime in the water and I love to look back at it.

This is an oldie but goodie. A picture of Jack playing in the sand. We love the beach and this picture really shows that.

Be sure to check out Sharmaine's blog. She is a finalist in the Project Scrap-Away challenge. Keep rocking those LO's girl and good luck in the next round!

Thanks for popping by!

Some good news and another clear album...

My blog has taken on a new look, what do you think?

I am happy to announce that I have joined the design team at My Kits & Pieces. It is a great site with a wonderful group of ladies and I really am excited to get started.

I have been in acrylic album heaven this week and have had such a great time with this jar album from My Acrylic Album. How cute and so many great uses for this.

I loved the Penguin Pants Stamps Buzzy Bugs, you can get them here. Last but not least I received a cool starter set of ribbon rings. They are available here. I totally jazzed them up with some American Crafts paper and ribbon. What a great storage idea!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy scrapping!

My Acrylic Album DT projects

I got an amazing box of goodies from My Acrylic Album. The acrylic is so thick and fun to use, not to mention all the great custom shapes.
Check out this adorable cupcake album designed by DT member Marci. What a great idea for an album. I decopaged pieces from cupcake cups for the cover and made the icing with stickles and crushed glass. I think it really looks like icing but sure would hurt if you bit into it.

I also got this fun 12X10 inch Mickey head Disney album. How fun and so BIG! Woo Hoo! This really is the perfect way to display Disney pictures.

I still have more projects in the works so off to my scrap room...Happy scrapping!

Lot of layouts, a sketch and my first manufacturer DT!

I am so excited to tell you I have been selected to join the Design Team at My Acrylic Album. I am a huge fan of clear acrylic albums and can't seem to get enough of them so this is the perfect fit for me. YAY! The team they selected is extremely talented and I am just thrilled to be working with them. In the next few days they will be going live with a new site and designs so be sure to check them out! Here is a little preview of one of my favorites, the wonky album.
I did a new LO this month using a sketch from So Sketchy. Ally was kind enough to make one for the crop at Serendipity this weekend and this is my interpretation of it.

Yep, thanks to Kristen at Serendipity Scrapbooks I couldn't scrap enough this month. I created 9 DT projects and still have a ton leftover.
Here are a few from the I Deserve it all kit:

And a few from the Just Enough Kit:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy July to you!
