It's My Day Off... And I'm Scrappin'

Hey Everyone!!

Since it's my day off, I jumped right into some scrapping this morning! Today I worked on a layout for a challenge over at Mothers & Daughters Creations Blog! This time, the challenge was to create a layout with a "Peek-A-Boo" element!

I decided to create a page for our Disney vacation album! This is my youngest daughter meeting Princess Jasmine! It brought tears to my eyes to see my shy little girl interacting with Jasmine & other characters while on our trip!

Been working on a new project...

Hey Everyone! Today I have been working on a cute collage frame for a challenge at Mothers & Daughters Creations! It actually turned out better than I thought it would!

I used (4) 5x5 wood frames that I picked up at Michael's a while ago, and covered them with different patterned papers from Making Memories & Pebbles, Inc. Then, using my favorite little bug (Cricut Expression) I cut out the different elements & words. Finally, I addd a few Basic Grey (Mellow) rub-ons! The "2007" is hanging on a little hook, and I have made other years (2008, 2009, etc.) and have left the back of the frams open, so that I can change out the pics each year!!

Tell me what you think...

TFL! Have A Great Day!

As the weekend comes to an end...

... I just wanted to pop in and post a few more projects!

It was a BUSY weekend, and I didn't do as much as I'd like, but it was fun! I spent most of the day hanging out with a friend on Saturday & just spend Sunday at home! Not sure what the week bring for work, but I do know I'm working Monday & Tuesday.

Well, hubby and I are going to snuggle up and watch the latest Indiana Jones movie! Have a great night, everyone!

I'll close with a layout & a couple of new cards I did this past week...

Layout was inspired by a sketch at A Page At a Time!

Cards were inspired by challenges at Moments to Remember, during their Fall Crop!

TFL! Have A Great Night!!

Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday! It's been a busy week so for, and only getting busier! I am working Monday - Friday this week, again, and I've had to do a few complicated cakes. :) I love the challenge, but it can be a little stressful! I'm bringing my camera to work tomorrow to take a pic of the most recent one. :)
But, even with working, laundry, housework, etc., I've managed to get in a little creative time! Here are a few more cards & a layout I'd like to share! TFL!
