Magic Memories

Another day....another scraplift.
I seem to have misplaced all my original ideas ;)

Here is the original by the incredibly talented Lisa Day.

Sorry about the picture, it is foggy here. I know, I can't blame the crooked on foggy, but it's cold too and I was outside....with no shoes...

Scooter's Vacation again. Great line! This paper is going a long way. I only bought 4 sheets of it, I did 2 layouts and I have 2 sheets left!

The Smooch Spritz is still cooperating with me. I love this stuff. I need a little control when I am misting or spritzing something and the Smooch gives it to me.

Did you see my star punch again? It's my favorite (obviously). I lined it with some of the stripe paper so that it would stand out.

The stitching got away from me on the ears. I wish you could see the circle for the head that I covered up....perfectly round (hehe).

Thank you Lisa for the brilliant layout idea!

I am supposed to be packing my stuff for a retreat weekend coming up, but whenever I start packing I get the urge to scrap. Unfortunately I never really get anything packed until the last minute. I am going to try today, maybe I will come up with a layout that isn't a scraplift?!

Thanks for looking!

Paradise Found

For this layout I used some of the new Scooter's Vacation line from Imaginisce. The Playground is carrying this super cute line. The blue on the layout is from My Mind's Eye. It is a B-side from the Stomp line.

This layout is a major scraplift. Here is the original . I just couldn't help myself.

These gorgeous pictures were taken by my friend Katy on our vacation last year in Cozumel.

On a separate note, can you believe how gorgeous it is outside? I have never been so ready for spring!

My Mind's Eye Challenge #8

The Challenge: Use this sketch designed by Anam Stubbington and pink OR red (or both). You can change it, use it as-is, flip it, whatever you'd like as long as we can still recognize the sketch.

Here is my entry into the layout challenge.
I am pleased with how it turned out. I used all My Mind's Eye papers. Close to My Heart and Cat's Eye inks, a Maya Road chipboard heart, a Martha Stewart punch, some Stickles and some Shimmerz.

Thanks for stopping by, wish me luck!

Marissa and I made these valentines last night. I started with the macaroni and cheese one, then she copied my pattern and made the other 3. The mac and cheese uses 3 bugs papers the others are older American Crafts. You can find the cute little valentines to print out on

The lighting was so off in my house I had to take them outside on my patio table. I couldn't get a big chunk of ice to break off :)

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Valentines Day!
