Just One Good Picture...

Here's another page I did using Crate Paper. It's a mix of last year's Christmas and "Snow Day" from this year. It was fun looking through the pictures I wanted to use. My Mom used a whole roll of film trying to get a decent picture of my sister and I. According to her, she told us we were going to sit there and keep taking pictures until she got a good one. My sister did pretty good, but I guess I just couldn't sit still. These were my favorite four.

Today is a Gift

For the past month or so, all of my scrapbook pages have used the new Crate Paper lines. Here's a page from the Snow Day line, but in a non-winter way. I took a ton of pictures when my Mom's side of the family came to the lake cottage and I loved the colors for the boys playing in the water.
To make the waves stand out more, I inked the edges with Versamark and then embossed with white embossing powder. Everything else is inked with my trusty brown ink.

A pile of love

Just as a disclaimer... I sometimes have the sense of humor of an eight year old. That being said, here's the Valentine I came up with this year. I was inspired by a card at work which had some oddly placed gemstones behind a bird. It reminded me of something else and an idea was born.

The sentiments on the front and inside were typed and printed on cardstock. The deer is the only stamping I did on this card. The layering of papers on the front took a little work, but I really like how nicely it all came together. A little bit of cuteness and a little bit of poop humor... just what everybody needs on Valentine's Day.
