Just A Little Sprinkle

Summer has yet to arrive in southwestern Ontario and as much as I personally love the temperature, my dd is complaining about how cold and rainy it is. I hate being hot and sticky. So I made this simple double layout to remind her of warmer days. Days where it was so hot you were just happy to run through a sprinkler ~ because that is what was going to keep you cool.

Maybe it will inspire you to warm yourself up with a summer layout or two. Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

Products used: Cosmo Cricket ~ Snorkle papers & rubons, American Craft Ribbon, Making Memories Mini Shimmer Letters, Ready to glitter letters, Scenic Route chipboard letters, Beads & wire.

Summer or Fall

I am typically a Fall girl. The colours, the cool breezes and the temperature. I have to admit that this summer the temp has been wonderful for me. But I am still a Fall Girl and lucky for me, my sister loves the Fall colours too. Here are 3 small canvas wall hangings I whipped together for her birthday & how I packaged it too. TFL.

Products Used: Sandylion PP ~ Dried Flowers, World Win Treasures - Butternut Orange & Natural, Basic Grey - Fusion (Burgundy), Bazzill - Mocha Divine, We R Memory Keepers ~ Fancy Eyelet, Twine & Brown Bag

That's So Danielle

This past Sunday was my younger sister's birthday ~I won't tell you how old she is because most girls don't like that. She moved from just 30 mins away to 2 hours away and this was the first weekend we were able to go and see the new house, the new town, her & her husband and the 4 children. It was a beautiful day and we arrived early for the "Surprise Party" so we took a little tour of the cottage town where she now lives. I have to say, she is truly blessed to be so close a beautiful lake with soft sandy beaches. That's so Danielle. Her new house was bright, cheery, decorated with touches of Chocolate, Orange and Lime and filled with laughter. That's so Danielle. I was speaking with my Mom and telling her about the layout I was doing and how I could not think of a title for it and my mom said, "That's So Danielle" and she was right. When we see something orange and cheery we think of her. When you get a little stick man in a card you think of her. When I think of a faithfilled woman I think of her. THAT'S SO DANIELLE.

This Layout was created with a variety of Cricut Cartridges from my LSS where I work. We have a new Cricut Cartridge library and there are some really fun ones out there. I used the Home Accents, Wild Card & good old George. I used the negative of the orange die as a stencil. I had to doodle on this layout because Danielle loves to doodle on things.
Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

We Grow Together

I always kick off my yearly books with a family picture or a layout that has all four(five ~ Cricket the Cat) in it. Here is my starter page for 2008-2009. I love this family picture taken by our friend Brad, owner of Swanson Eyeimagine Photography. He did such a wonderful job for our entire family. If you check out his Portrait Gallery 2 you will see 4 hansome young men (all our boys). On this layout I hand-stitched my flourishes, they are kind of hard to see. I rolled the edges ot the 2 circles to show the red cardstock underneath and I didn't INK ANYTHING! You can get all of this great stuff at All About Scrapbooks & More in Woodstock ON. Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.
