Canyon's First Flight

This is another photo that I have been waiting to scrap until I found just the right layout and papers. I took a lot of inspiration from this one by Susan Stringfellow.

There is some serious shadow going on in that title, sorry about that.

I love the writing on the ticket behind the title. I just wish I had come up with it!

I actually found his ticket from that flight, can you believe it? Sometimes being a pack rat pays off! I just had to get one of the envelopes from the mini album on this page.

Awww, doesn't he look sweet?
Kendra's sewing machine did this amazing stitch. I love it!

Cherish these moments - Sylvan Lake

This is one of the layouts I finished at the retreat I went to over 10-10-10. This is an older Crate paper line that I have had sitting around for awhile. I love these pictures of my kids at Sylvan.

I used Kendra's amazing sewing machine for all the stitching. Wow! I have some serious sewing machine envy going on.

Thanks for looking!

Popsicle Pirate

Another layout from last weekends retreat. I didn't like this layout at all while I was creating it. As soon as I started adding embellishments it all started to come together and I like how it turned out.

How cute is the little easel that I picked up at Ikea for 99 cents?! I propped it up on my deck railing (ahh, I love my new deck) for the picture.

I got quite a bit done (for me) at the scrapbook retreat I went to this weekend, so I have more layouts to share later on this week.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pumpkin Patch

About a month ago I got an email from Jami Peterson, the editor in chief at Magazine. She had come across one of my layouts on Two Peas and asked if I would like to submit it for publication. Of course I would!
Here is a link to the layout and article. Pumpkin Patch

Rough and Tough

I went to a retreat this weekend and finally got some scrapping done!

This is the Bella Blvd Man of the House line. So cute! I also threw on some stickers from a sticker sheet that was given to me in my retreat pack, thanks Lynn!

Here is a close up so you can see the sneer that Canyon was giving me.

I am happy to be scrapping again, although we still have lots of house projects to get done in the next month, including a new roof! I signed up for another retreat next weekend and am planning on another the beginning of November, hopefully they will keep me going.
I have also just started teaching scrapbooking classes at Michaels in Rapid City. If you are interested, shoot me an email and I will get you the info.
