This is another picture from my Stepson's beach trip...

I had fun with this one.  I finally got to use Cricut's Life's a Beach for a scrap again.  I used Spring Chic for most of the papers, but I also used Hey Diddle Diddle, for the secondary background on the page.  The random flowers are from Memory Makers. I finally grabbed and dusted off the tin.  The bling is from Recollections.  I recently got those at Micheal's.  The new toy I got at Micheal's is Martha Stewart's polymer clay and molds.  I made the frame and it's medallion using those.


This is a picture that my stepson's girlfriend brought back to us from their trip to the beach last week.

I made the whole scrap with white paper and the Cricut Imagne and E2.  I used Ornamental Iron(arch), Lori's Garden (picture mat, flower and butterfly), Black and White (harlequin background), Paper Trimmings (Lacy border on top of harlequin mat), Cricut Craft Room Basis (Title) and Spring Chic (Background paper) cartridges.

Home Can Be Anywhere

This was my daughter's favorite picture from the photo shoot.

I used Spring Chic to print the papers and the CCR to make the mats and embellies.  The flourish is from Sophisticated and he banner on the bottom, an the flowered arced mat is from Art Philosophy.  The photo mats were from Art Philosophy and Cricut Craft Room Basics. The flower was from Cricut Accents and is centered with a brad from Making Memories.  The title is from Botanicals.

He Loves Me

Cute pics of my DD and her beaux.  Giving her the flower for the shot was his idea....even if it was a dandelion, I thought it was sweet..

I made the papers using the Cricut Imagine and its Spring Chic cartridge.  I cut out the top note shape at 9.9" so it would center and then cut a side off of the cut out piece to put under the pictures.  I inked all of the edges in Tim Holtz distress ink in Broken China and made the flower from Tim's Sizzix die called tattered floral.  I inked its edges in an ink an crumpled it in my hands before putting it together.  The branch came from the Accent Essential cartridge and the chipboard flourish I had in my stash.  I bought the lace at
