Soccer Layouts

This is a really fun way to do layouts. I used the new CTMH Flip Flaps. You can add 2 more photos to your layout. I touched up the photos from the Picnik website where you can do all kinds of funky things to your pictures (FREE). I also used my Cricut Sports to do the little border soccer girls and even added shorts. lol

Little Mermaids

Here are 2 layouts that I have done from this past Canada Day. I just love the kids in water pictures. I used many different papers for this layout. I finially used my Lifes a Beach Circut and made the mermaid and the sun. Kids just wanna have fun.

Lasting Memories Challenge #3 Stamped Image

Here is my Layout for Challenge #3 for Lasting Memories. This layout meant a lot to me. It is my fiance and his younger brother with their mom as well. I am doing a scrapbook for him for his birthday. My stamped image is the house to represent the family home. I colored it with CTMH watercolor pencils. The stamp is also from CTMH and is Home Sweet Home. The stamp actually comes in pieces and you get to design your own home. It is so fun to play with. Hope you like it.

Lasting Memories Challenge #2

Here is my layout for "Buttons and Bows". I just loved how this turned out. I made up my own layout using different papers. I also used the Circut to cut out the words and double layered them. The ribbon for the bows is from CTMH and the buttons are from the $ store. The beautiful little girl is my niece and she just turned 13 on June 29th. I am making up a family album for my hubby for his birthday for November. SHH its a secret...

Lasting Memories Challenge #2 - Buttons and Bows!

Morning all! Nancy has put her back out (bulging disc) and is bed ridden for the wknd, so I (Karen) thought I would come in and do up her LMLC post for her. She did an awesome job!

Layout Challenge #1

Sorry I am late at posting this. I did have it set for this morning but for some reason it didnt work. Help. I have done that for a few others and the same thing. I had to manually load it. Anyway! Ok here is my first layout for Lasting Memories that I am on the Design Team. The red white and blue layout. This one is of my fiance and brothers on the team. Most of the materials are from Close to My Heart. Have fun on the blog hop..

Dale and Christy's Wedding

Here is one more wedding layout. This time it is my brother and sister-inlaws wedding that took place back in 1988. The paper is from Cherished Memories and lots of bling..

Karen and Keith's Wedding

Here is another wedding layout. This time it is my cousin Karen and Keith's Wedding back in 2002. I was not there at the time as I was not part of the family then. It took place at my mother-in laws backyard. It looks so beautiful and was a great day. The paper is from Micheals and came in a paper pack called Design Paper by K & C Company. I think it was perfect for this beautiful wedding..
