Self Portrait

This is a LO I did of my son's pictures of himself. I decided to sew on it and I think I really like it. I got the PP on clearance in Yakima WA!

Those Blue Eyes!

Here is a LO I did of Logan, my eldest. I used cork paper, a side show owl stamp, some more of that Prima Cardboard stuff, and Love Elsie stuff. TFL!

This is a LO of Annie, my daughter who is 6 and has more clothes then most full woman -- much less little girls! The paper I used is flocked and is actually white, but I glimmer Misted it to make it match her outfit (kind of???) The Layout took a total of 20 minutes to throw together and no pagemaps this time, but I really like it. Better than I thought it would turn out! TFL!

This is a LO I did of my DD using the KI Bloom line and I used a page map for the placement. I was never one to use a sketch until I got the page maps book and now I am addicted! TFL!

Primas The Goods Shape Aroma

I have been lusting after the new paper that prima has out that looks like cardboard pattern paper that you can distress. I could not find any at my LSS, but I did find this new stuff! It is called "The Goods" and it is basically die cut cardboard. I am sure that I could make my own to a certain degree, but to get the shapes would be a challenge. Here is a step by step process of what I did with it for a LO.

2 types of glimmer mist, paint dabber, crackle paint, distress ink, and an exacto knife is what I used to alter these.

This is what it looked like after I painted, crackled, and used the exacto knife to pull pieces away exposing the center.

This is what it looked liked after I added the distress ink and glimmer mist.

Here is what I did with it on this Layout of my daughter!

This is really a neat thing to do, but if you don't want to use shapes you really could just use cardboard! ;-)

A Layout and Something for the Birds!

Here is a little birdhouse I made for my aunt and a LO I did today of my goofy son! The LO was made with the Feb. Commit2Paper kit. The birdhouse was a RAK from my friend Jen B. I used a bunch of stuff on it, but the PP is all CTMH. Thanks for looking!

Economical Recipe Album!

With today's economy we are all trying to save! The last thing I need to spend my money on is eating out, even though I love to! No dirty kitchen no dirty dishes...ah.... Oh right! Anyways, not only are we trying to pinch those pennies I am also going back to school for my Masters, getting re certified to teach, and will start teaching in the fall if all goes to plan. I still have five mouths to feed every night and not only crunched on money, but time too. So, I came up with this recipe album for my family. All of the items I used are CTMH and if interested please contact me! Below you will find a few pages from it!

I first came up with what I cook often for my family and made up a list. I came up with 12 meals and broke them down into two week segments because we eat 6 meals in and one meal out every week. I shop once a week so I made up a list for each week. I placed it in the page protector because I can use a dry erase marker when I shop, cross item off, and then wipe clean for reuse when I get home. This saves me from having to write a list each week. I also left a spot empty for the additional items I will need as I shop.

Here is my meal for week one day one. It is chicken pot pie and I included the recipe for the crust. I labeled my pages according to days so it is easier to use. now instead of looking for a meal based on it's title I just go to Day 1 week 1 and so on. Much easier for me. Now, had I needed anything else with the meal I would have included that as well!

Here is what the album looks like complete!

Finally here is a LO I completed with the Commit 2 Paper Feb. Kit!

Thanks for looking and leave me love! :-)
