It's happening!

Today is the day!
It really is!
My Shots of Life DT reveal over at

I am super excited to share with you the Shots of Life Pocket Pages I did
for the month of July!  I love The ScrapRoom Flavor of the Month Kits and
now I am loving the Shots of Life Kits too!!!

With the Shots of Life Kit, I have been able to scrap soooo many more pictures!  I use several pictures on a layout instead of just a couple!  With the amount of pictures I take, this is helping me get more done and in less time!  This very busy mama needs that!

So without further ado . . .  here is the Kit and the 3 pages I have done so far from this 1 kit!

 I enjoyed using the SOL Bo Bunny Love Notes cards from the Petal Lane collection to scrap this page of my little sister and I! With all boys, I rarely get to scrap pink and this kit was just so refreshing! I really wanted the banners on the 2nd 3x4 card to stand out so I used an exacto knife to cut around the edges enough to slide my pic under! Makes them pop off the page and look more like an embellishment instead of part of the card. I used some twine, the "fabulous" thicker and some black cardstock (matting) from my personal stash, but nothing else was needed because this SOL kit was so 'fabulous'!

I used Pebbles Girl Squad from the SOL kit to complete this page of some of my teammates! Used embellishments from the kit as well! (The puffy hearts, gold arrows and 2 4x6 cards are from my personal stash.) As much as I liked the "You Got This" black 3x4 card, I felt like I needed more white in that area so I covered it with the "You're my person" embellishment. Also cut down a photo to cover the bottom of the "Happy Girls Are the Prettiest" card since the bottom of the card did not fit my design.

This SOL kit was perfect to scrapbook our Spring Break trip to Washington DC. I loved using these pictures of the Washington Monument with this kit. Going through the DC pict ures brought back all the awe and amazement of my first trip to the Nation's Capital! From my stash: Star wood veneers, project life cards for backgrounds, twine and star enamel dots.

Throwback Thursday!

Do you sometimes look back at your old layouts and think how far you have progressed? Most of the time when I do this, I see a huge difference in my scrappy abilities (using that term loosely!).  But today as I came across these layouts that I did in March 2012, I don't think my style has changed all that much!  Here are a few Throwback Thursday layouts for you today!

Always fun looking back at past layouts.  Love checking out the memories. Sometimes I think about what I would change if I was scrapping it now.  Other times like today, I think these layouts are perfectly fine and I wouldn't change a thing.

Bonnie & Clyde

Bonnie and Clyde had nothing on Gwynn and Payton!
Cousins and best friends!
They had so much fun doing this photo shoot for their senior pictures.
This is the 1st of many layouts I will be doing from this photo shoot because there were soooo many great pictures!  Can't wait to share more with you!

I used Echo Park papers with some ms sparkle & co doiles (with distress ink) and hearts.  Some balled up twine and paper studio tags.  Throw in some Pebbles corrugated alphas and my fave enamel dots to top it off!

New technique! I'm in love!

Who has used it?
This layout was my first experience with gesso!
I fell in love!
So messy, so fun and soooo much texture!

I used the November We R Memory Keepers High Five FOTM kit from The Scraproom!  Perfect for pics of my boys! Love you to the Moon and Back is something the boys and I always say to each other!  Used a stencil with the gesso to add some texture to the back!  Then I used Faber-Castell Watercolor Crayons to add some color to the texture!  I will definitely be trying this technique again!

What is your favorite technique to use on layouts?  I think I have found my new fave! ;)

218 Days Until Christmas

Only 218 Days Until Christmas?
Seems like it was just here!

So today I am going to share some Christmas layouts that I did from Christmas 2016!

This page was done using a kit from Clique Kits.  Lots of torn papers and some messy layering with a couple bundles of embellishments made this a very fun layout!

The following layouts were done using Flavors of the Month kits from The Scraproom!  I have a monthly subscription to their kits and they never disappoint!!!  4 kits in each subscription every month and they always amaze!!  Season of Love was made using My Mind's Eye Sugar Plum!  Love the little bit of bling in the papers!

Christmas Cuties . . . yup, my little men with Santa! 
 I used The Scraproom FOTM Bella Blvd Illustrated Faith CHRISTmas!  
These papers were so fun and absolutely adorable!  Wanted to use all these pics so I did a 2 pager!  Doesn't seem like I do these very often any more but sometimes it's a necessity!  I love being able to carry over the page into 2!  And the white ink on black just drew it all into the green/black/white patterned paper.

One of our favorite Christmas traditions is opening one gift on Christmas Eve which is always new pajamas!  Love to scrapbook our traditions as memories for my boys!  I used The Scraproom Flavors of the Month Carta Bella Christmas Delivery to scrap PJ's Crew.

Tis the Season was a difficult page for me, though I love how it turned out! 
 I had a hard time with the angle of the paper. 
 Another FOTM kit Pinkfresh Oh Joy!  
And I had so much fun making the banner using washi tape!

Who starts their Christmas shopping early?  Sure isn't me! 
But these pages start to bring me some Christmas spirit!

So as we head into the summer . . . here's wishing you all an early, or late depending on how you look at it, Merry Christmas! hahaha

So since I am catching up on a few months of not blogging,
I am going to share the layouts I made using the Jan.2017 FOTM kit!
Z&R (Zander & Roxie) was made using Jillibean Soup Hardy Hodgepodge. 
Added in some of wood venears . . .my fave embellishments!

Sisters are Amazing was used using Pink Paislee Moonstruck.  Used watercolor crayons on the white cardstock.  Not very often I get to use pink, flowers and bling so I take advantage of it when I can!
