Spending TIme Together

I made this LO following the above sketch for Authentique's May Sketch Challenge. ( I used Authentique Gathering  6x6 Bundle Collection fot the pic mats, American Crafts Peachy Keen Premium Ribbon, and K&Company Susan Winget for both the background and the corner papers. The title, "Spending time together." and the sticker behind it are both DCWV La Creme Cardstock Sticker Stack. The pictures are of my mom, Mr. Ray, Dustin, & Emily playing Washer Toss. I wanted to use these pics to show the progression in Mr. Ray's movements in each play of the game! I didn't include any journaling because there's no room and I've done other LOs of some of the same pics. I tried to cut the pic mats as close as I could to make the 4 pics an even square, but it didn't turn out that way. It's not off too much! LOL! TFL & have a good Memorial Day weekend!

Laura & Pirate

I made these pages based on the Let's Scrap ( sketch above. It took me 4 hours to make sure everything fit on both pages based on the sketch! I also watched American Idol and Always & Forever while making this, but was able to look up occasionally! The planning took the longest! I cut the circle out first from My Mind's Eye Bella Bella, then I cut out the strips from Recollections Pink Paisley, then I put the pics on the pic mats (all K&Company from Niki), then I cut out the pics/pic mats to fit the pages, then I added the tag to the strip of Pink Paisley on the right, then added the journaling block-Authentique The Gathering, and then added the flowers and butterflies (Tim Holtz from Niki). The pics are of Laura & Pirate/Boanerges at Equine Country USA on April 14, 2012. Boanerges is Pirate's competition name. The main 2 pages are also MME Bella Bella. I just bought this pad from TJ Maxx and am loving it!! I need to get ready for work. Have a great Thursday night all! TFL!

Easter 2012

 I did this LO following the sketch above for Crafty Sketches May Challenge. ( I had Easter pics from this year that I hadn't scrapped yet, so I thought these 2 yard statues would be perfect for this sketch! The paper is My Mind's Eye (MME) Bella Bella, the green/white/black striped paper is Mambi Spring Kit & so are the bling & tulip in the bottom corner. The ribbon is American Crafts Premium Ribbon. The puffy flowers at the top are Hallmark Easter stickers. The butterfly in the top left corner is The Paper Studio Stickabilities. My grandmama was given these statues as Christmas presents. I've never really noticed them that much in her yard before.
 This is the 1st page of the 2 pg LO. The top pic is the table before we ate Hardee's fried chicken and vegetables from Grandmama & Mr Raffael's garden. The top paper is MME Bella Bella (again) and the bottom paper (actually the main page, but all you see is the bottom right corner and the about 1/2 an inch on the left) is Mambi Spring Kit. The sentiment states  "Easter Sunday and lilies Colors Pink and green Easter bunnies and baskets Eggs and jellybeans." & is MME Tiny Tales Vellum. I used some of the same stickers as on the previous page- Hallmark Easter puffies, The Paper Studio Stickabilites, and more bling from Mambi. These pictures were taken Easter Sunday April 8, 2012 at Grandmama's house. Her yard is full of flowers such as iris, daisies, and azaleas as seen in the pics.
This is the 2 pages put together. I will have another post later about another 2 page LO I made last night for Let's Scrap! I really like how that one turned out and can't wait to share! I need to get some lunch soon. TFL!

She was on her honeymoon with Bill in eastern NC & came to New Bern Mall to meet me on their way to Washington!" The ribbon is Bobbin Ribbon; the brad is one of 12 We R Memory Keepers Fabric Brads Friends Furever; & the title quote is from DCWV Color Vellum Quotes Stack and states "Friendship is a heart-flooding feeling that can happen to any two people who are caught up in the act of being themselves, together."- Letty Cottin Pogrebin.
