Papa & Me Scrapbook Page

It was very important to me to make this layout very special.  My father-in-law is not in very many pictures, and certainly not with a smile.  The picture of my son and him smiling at each other was so precious to my husband and me.
I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for the font and the Just Because Cards cartidge for the oak tree and swing.  This layout was simple but that's how my father-in-law is, SIMPLE! =)

Frog Huntin' Scrapbook Page

Here is a quick scrapbook page.  My son went frog hunting for the first time with some of his friends we were camping with!
I used the Winnie the Pooh Font cartridge for the title.  I used the frog from the Sweethearts cartridge for the "o" in Frog.

MPS Winter Challenge

Robyn, My Pink Stamper, issued a challenge this weekend to make some that reminds you of winter.  Personally, I can't wait until FALL!  Anyway, when I think of Winter, I think of hot chocolate.  Mmmmm...
For the scalloped inside layer, I used the Accent Essentials cartridge.  I embossed the top layer using my cuttlebug.  For the mug, I used the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge.  Finally, for the saying - "Coco Warms The Soul" - I used the Gypsy Font cartridge.

Thanks, Robyn for offering this challenge.  Hope everyone enjoys!

My sweet, sweet husband surprised me with my very own Gypsy! 
It's a LATE Mother's Day gift, but better late than never!  He got a SUPER deal on it and I'm sssoooo excited!  We went on a mini-vacation this past weekend and I couldn't put it down!  I'm very excited about creating everything I designed on vacation.  Stay tuned...

"Pre-Op" Scrapbook Page

 Here's a shocker, I did NOT use my Cricut for this page!!!  I wanted to make this "Pre-Op" page to be very simple in preparation for the Post-Op and helicopter tour pages to come to be special and exciting. =)  I'm so happy that my husband had his blackberry in the Pre-Op room so I could capture this precious photos before my son's surgery. 

Check back for more pages to come!  I only have two weeks left before school starts and I return to work, so I better get to scrapping! =)


"Splash" Scrapbook Page

For this page, I took inspiration from the Bug Junkie's "Oceans of Fun" layout.  I used the "Life's A Beach" cartridge and the "Create A Critter" cartridge for this two-page spread.

The blingy water bubbles cam from Michaels.  This was the first page I used my new ATG gun and I am officially IN LOVE with it!  I thoroughly enjoyed making this page!  Enjoy! =)
