Family ***Momenta, SiT, and SWV***

This Christmas the Reed family all met in Atlanta.  We spent 4 days with the grandkids, grandparents, nieces, nephews, uncles, aunts, and spouses all in one house.  It was a blast, it was packed, and it was fun!!  On Christmas Eve we had a professional photographer take pictures of the families together and separate.  This is our family.

I made this layout with the March sketch from Scrap with V, so head on over and play along and while you are at it you can use the same sketch or a different once of your choice for the open sketch challenge at Sketches in Thyme.

This is also my first layout for Momenta.  I love their stickers, they have such a good "stick" to them plus they are sturdy.
Momenta Products used
12" x 12" DIECUT PAD (PA-2395)

So cute ***SWV***

My son Brandon and his third hair cut just before his 2nd birthday.  He was the perfect client.  He sat so still and listened to all the instructions the stylist asked him to do.  He did not cry or fuss one bit.  We decided to give him a big boy hair cut since all his curls just seemed to want to give him a fro, lol.  He looked so much older, bye bye baby Brandon - welcome big boy Brandon!!

I made this layout with my Scraps with V kit.  This is one of 2 layouts that you can purchase the supplies for and create!!  Instructions and pictures included!!

perfect SMILE ***SWV and FD***

My son Morgan went down one of those inflatable boucey house slides - he adores them - and at the bottom my mother got this great shot of his wonderful smile.  It just shows up how much fun he was having that day, so bright and cheerful, the pure innocence of being a child!!

This layout is for a challenge at Frosted Designs, use brads or eyelets on your project.  I hope you can pop on over and play along!!

I made this layout with my Scraps with V kit.  This is one of 2 layouts that you can purchase the supplies for and create!!  Instructions and pictures included!!

I decided on a fun and cheery look for this layout to match the expression on my son's face.

Countdown to 2011 LO 3 **SiT**

I am doing some pages for my friend of her New years Eve party she had to kick of 2011.  It looked like quite a bash!!  I played around with the layers of the papers and ribbons in the vertical strip, keeping it simple but also keeping the focus of the layout to that point and also to the picture.

I use the wonderful sketch from Sketches in Thyme (SiT).  I hope you can pop over and play along with this great sketch this month!!  I turned the sketch to the side to help account for the picture being a horizontal picture instead of a vertical one.  Always keep in mind you can rotated any sketch any direction you want to make it work for you, the sketch is just the starting point for the whole layout.

Precious - card ***FD and SWV***

I love the idea of being able to give people close to me a handmade card instead of a bought one.  It does not have to be fancy, maybe something simple, but it is from me made by me.  For Valentines Day giving cards to my husband, kids, teachers, and close family is a must just to let them know how much they mean to me.

I made this card with inspiration from a card that I teach at Michaels Craft Store.  That is where I learned how to make those cute little rose buds.  I can't share a tutorial for the buds since it is something I teach at Michaels and it would infringe on policies with the store.  I can tell you however the class is called Punched Card Tricks at Michales and all the cards you make in the class are super sweet, so go to your local Michaels and try out this great class!!

I made this card for Frosted Designs.  This weeks challenge is to use ribbon or twine on your project.  I use the twine to wrap around my flower buds. 

I also made this card with the inspiration picture posted at Scraps with V, the challenge for this month is to use the picture as your inspiration for you project.  I hope you go by both of these great sites and play along!!
