A Serpent's Tale

My beautiful daughter in costume for her drama competition.  The whole monologue as part of the layout was a "have to" to for me.  It was impressive for her to have done this.  She spent so much time with this part that it was important to include it.  These great felt shapes add just the perfect touch to this "creepy" layout.  I wanted it to feel eery.  (Yes, those are contacts.  All of my babies eyes are brown.")  Fun project and fun to experience her performance over again!

My little mew mew

My Lexie wanted a kitten.  Oh how she loves this kitty!  Cute 1 page layout made with Sophia paper from Close To My Heart.  Here kitty, kitty!  Try this technique...use your background and texture paper to cut words or items to decorate your page.  Here, I used the words, unity, fun, love, smile, Joy and laugh.  Then I layered them with CS to create this great look.

17 years!

17 years with my best friend.  I have been so blessed with such great kids.  This layout was made to celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary and how our family has grown.

This paper is Mischief in the Autumn/Winter Idea Book from Close To My Heart.  I love to add different colors such as the Olive accents to a paper that was intended for Halloween.  Very fun!
