Some recent creations...

I've done some scrapping this week but haven't had the time to come post about it yet. Because of that, I'll just share it all now while I've got a few minutes... ;)

This first layout is about Mark and Madison having a funny face contest. I love these pictures! I've wanted to scrap them for a while now, but trying to scrap the colors pink and red together, without the page looking too girly, is a tough job. I decided to go with these papers from K&Company, and I think it looks great!

Supplies: K&Company Paper Pad - Greenhouse; Fiskars Large Squeeze Punch - Round & Round; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Lipstick Red; Bazzill Just The Edge Strip (used as a template); Scenic Route Chipboard Heart (used as a template); Buttons; DMC Floss

The next layout I did has my 2 sweet girls on it. I got this picture of them taking a walk together last year and I fell in love with it. There's just something about the way they're walking along, hand in hand, that just melts me. Instead of journaling myself, I used a favorite Bible verse of mine, which is 2 Corinthians 5:7 - "For we walk by faith, not by sight." I think it fits the picture perfectly...

Supplies: K&Company Paper Pad - Life's Journey; American Crafts Buttons; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Chestnut Roan; Prima Flowers; DMC Floss

The last layout is one I did today, about a trip we took to Build-A-Bear back in June. My sis-in-law sent the girls some gift certificates to celebrate their cousin Marybeth's birthday (and Madison's), and they had so much fun picking out their new friends! I love how happy they look!

Supplies: K&Company Paper Pad - Wild Raspberry; Colorbox Chalk Ink - Lipstick Red; Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Tea Dye; Basic Grey Chipboard Letters; Making Memories Edge Distresser; Making Memories Sanding Block

Ok, that's it for today. Thanks for looking...I really appreciate it. :)

Wow April, you know I'm not really into cards, but yours are gorgeous!!!
And every single LO turned out soooo beautiful! I love the pics in the first, and the colours work very well. That LO with the girls walking and holding hands, well, I saw that one on already and you know how I feel about that one! And then the last one ... wow, I loooooove the look of that one! The distressing, the matting of the journaling, the sanding of the pics ... you really used a lot of beautiful techniques on this one and it all came together so well. I'm thinking you've gone to a next level with your scrapping my friend!
