What a great picture of me and my 3 kids before all the awful stuff began to happen - and it's so fun seeing the first time we met my sweet little nephew, Conal, who has grown to be the bestest friend of my little Amaria! I did this for a speed scrap at Ginger Scraps hosted by JaneAgain, using the kit Destiny by Manda's Scrappin' Creations at Stuff to Scrap.

This is a product of the most difficult speed scrap I've ever done - thanks to Lorry Fach - was great fun, and I'm totally happy about the way it ended up! I used my own kit, With A Child's Heart.
I made this page with a cute pic of the two girls in order to practice a hair editing technique, where I extract the picture, and then add hair strands to make the hair look more realistic. This was a Ginger Scraps challenge for August, 2009. I used the kit Floatin on a Breeze by Scraps of Ellay.
A truly Minnesotan recipe, for a recipe scrapping challenge at Ginger Scraps, August 2009. I got the recipe from a user called alanak at 2 Fat Als. Kit used is A Little Off by Stolen Moments of Sunshine Studio Scraps.

I began with the name of a song I love, and brought together a number of things that remind me of children, and their cheerful, joyful, creative, loving hearts! Teddy bears to cuddle, trains to drive on great expeditions, balloons to bounce, crafts of construction paper, and lots of glitter, beads, buttons, ribbons, and other things children love! I was also inspired by a crafty CU kit by Nibbles Skribbles - thanks Manda! This is for children of all ages, either gender, and any season! The kit has 55 elements, 20 papers, and a full alpha. It is for personal use, S4H, or S4O. Drop shadows have been added to the preview only - not in the kit. Can be purchased at Bouquet of Pixels - just click on preview to see.
And as I don't have a CT team just yet, here is some eye candy created by ME with my kit!
Here's a layout which uses one of the word art creations which I will have available in a freebie kit add-on sometime before the end of August - keep your eyes open!
This layout was created using my Good Morning mini-kit by Digides at Hummie's World. She did a beautiful job, and took some beautiful pix! Though at first when I saw this layout, I was looking for the bird! haha! The kit can be found at my BOP store here: bouquetofpixels.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=index&...

Mica, Amaria, and Zoe enjoying rides at Hugo's annual carnival! I used the newest kit by Scraps of Ellay called Guinivere's Beauty! Can be found at Stuff to Scrap www.stufftoscrap.com!
I love scrapping simple pix of Amaria's gorgeous, soft face! Nothing special going on, no occasion, just all hanging out. I used the beautiful new kit by Scraps of Ellay of Stuff to Scrap - called Guinevere's Beauty. Available at www.stufftoscrap.com.
I did this for a speed scrap at Ginger Scraps led by Becka.

The story of my last two vehicles - hilarious and makes me so grateful for my parents! I made this for the "what" challenge at Stuff to Scrap, category being Transportation. This is a great challenge because it gets us to scrap the things of everyday life that we may not have otherwise, but which will be fun to remember years later - as this story truly is! I used the kit Growing Up by Stolen Moments (Amber) of Sunshine Studio Scraps and Scrap Matters.
I absolutely love the color orange, especially with green, but seldom have a kit or the pix to go with it - so this kit, A Little Bit Off, by Stolen Moments of Sunshine Studios, along with the orange-ish sweater I made for Amaria - made for a page I will always LOVE!

This is a page from a speed scrap where I actually am thrilled with how it turned out - I think my prettiest layout ever! I used Flower Scraps' kit Music except flowers & leaves, which come from my kit, Farewell My Summer Love.
Amaria and I have a special bond because she's the baby, and we LOVED sneaking out to be alone together. Now, the other 2 are gone, and we get all the alone time we want...it was kinda funner when we had to work hard at it! I used a new kit by Digilicious Designs at Digiscrap Mania called A Girl Thing. Made for a speed scrap at Ginger Scraps.

Amaria's little cousins are growing up so cute! When they are together, they are not too hard to tell apart (Olivia is a little more petite) but when not together, still very hard to tell apart - even for their mom! I used the fun kit Alphabet Remix by Stolen Moments Designs of Sunshine Studio Scraps and a template by Robyn Pali of Enchanted Studio Scraps.
This is an adorable template by Jewel Scraps of Enchanted Studio Scraps, and the kit is Pop & Fizz by Stolen Moments of Sunshine Studio Scraps. The adorableness is all in Zoe's cheeks - cute little girl chubby cheeks! Looking at this picture is fun, because now Amaria is the same age as Zoe was then. Her cheeks aren't that chubby, though!
Noah, Amaria, and Antonia are the "angels" at New Life (our church) because of this great pic we took of them when they were angels for the Christmas show a few years back. Made this page for a speed scrap at Ginger Scraps using kit Scrap Happy by Mel Hains of Scrap That Idea.
The benefit of scrapping (and photoshop) is that we can do something special with low quality pix - cuz sometimes they capture high-quality moments! As in this layout...I used the kit Gypsy by Scraps of Ellay, a freebie on her blog beginning August 17, 2009. See next post down for preview of whole kit, and preview is linked to Ellay's blog!
Amaria so cute blowing on a dandelion fluff! I used the kit Gypsy by Scraps of Ellay at Stuff to Scrap, which is out today (August 17, 2009) as a blog freebie - click on preview to head over and pick it up!

I'm just in love with my own kit, what can I say? Well, that's good, I guess. This is some of the nifty stuff I was able to get for Amaria when she finally had her own bedroom! It's my Farewell My Summer Love kit available at Bouquet of Pixels.
Yet another layout with my Farewell My Summer Love kit (including some of the stuff from the add-on freebie) - the alpha for the word BEAUTY is by Stephanie Ulrich, a freebie for today's speed scrap (participation prize) at Ginger Scraps.

My adorable nephews and daughter had such a fun time this May when they came to visit - I used Secret Garden kit by Just For You Digi Scraps - free on her blog! Just click on the layout to check it out!
My adorable granddaughter, Taia - in her big white tee! Doesn't she look adorable? This was on her 2nd 4th of July, at her other grandparents' house. I used my own awesome kit, Farwell My Summer Love (hey, if I don't toot my own horn, who else will?) which can be found by clicking on the layout.
My little granddaughter is such a funny girl. She is so precious, and I miss her now that she doesn't live with me! I created this page using Floatin on a Breeze - a freebie collab, but I just used Scraps of Ellay's part. This is a freebie on Scraps of Ellay's blog (this imagine linked to her blog), and two others (you can link to them from her blog). See below for preview of all 3 parts, and the previews are also linked to the blogs.
