More Misc Me - July

 Morning Scrappy Friends! It's time again for me to share my Misc. Me album that I'm working on for Bo Bunny. This month I chose to use the Anthem Collection. I thought it was a great choice to celebrate Canada Day and all the birthdays we had this month. I changed it up a little by writing a little note about what happened during the month, and also putting in a few sayings I found on Pinterest that I liked. This little album is so much fun. Even though it's August, I love looking back at the months and seeing all the photos of what happened over the winter that I've already forgotten. I'm so proud that I'm sticking with taking a photo a day on my phone! It does help that my phone beeps to remind me everyday, lol.
 This collection has so many fun elements that the pages came together very quickly.

Say Cheese - Bo Bunny


Morning Everyone!! Here's a layout I did of Ashley and Jax just sharing a hug!! They do this quite often and they both don't mind me snapping photos of them!!! I love this girl!! She isn't tired of me yet, lol. I cut the background on my Cameo and then just added a few goodies to the background. I love working with the Mama Razzi2 collection, the colors are just so rich and gorgeous! This was a just for fun layout because I really need to learn how to use my Cameo more and wanted to play with a background! Hope your all having a wonderful day!!

Dance Pride - Let's Get Sketchy




 Morning Scrappy Friends! It's Monday!! I hope you all had a great weekend. Since it's Monday, that means another sketch challenge is up at Let's Get Sketchy. Ashley Horton designed this sketch and when I saw it I thought... it's got to be a girl layout! I started off with one collection and a totally different photo, but ended up decideing to pull out my Anthem collection from Bo Bunny and a photo of Nicole at her dance competition. Perfect match!!! Not sure, but the photo of the layout looks crooked, but for the life of me it just wouldn't straighten out. So anyways, I hope your enjoying your Monday and have a chance to pop by Let's Get Sketchy and play along with us! I am out at the cabin for our last week of holidays, so I will see all you lovely scrappers when I get home next Monday!

Memories Mini Album


 Happy Hump Day!!! How's everyone's week going? Remember my story from Monday about the three same Prima collections I bought? Well.. I decided a mini was a great way to use up a ton of paper. I started the album not knowing what I was going to do with it. Then the light bulb came on and I thought " It's Nicole & Chris's 2nd Anniversary this week, so maybe a mini is in order for a gift?". I had to hurry because I had one day to make it! They came home from holidays on Monday and I wanted to give it to them before they went home.  I searched for photos of them together. The earliest photo I found was from 2005. Yes they have been together for a long time. I believe Grade 8! So we have grad photos, engagement photos, and a few from holidays. It was a really fun little mini to do. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it!

Love This Story

  Good Morning and Happy Monday!!! How was the weekend? We stayed home this weekend and in between laundry, yardwork and cleaning the house I got to play a little in my studio. I saw this sketch by my very sweet and oh so talented friend Karan Gerber at Sketchabilities and new I just had to play along. As I was looking for paper, I realized I had bought not one, not two, but three collections of Prima Engraver! I must really have loved it to buy it three times right? lol...  So I used some of it for this layout, did a mini album for Nicole which I will share on Wednesday, and still have tons left over. You may be seeing me use this again! lol. So, off I go to find my next project and I hope your all having a wonderful Monday!

Born on the 4th of July - Bo Bunny


Morning!!! This week at Bo Bunny they are introducing our new design team! I came home yesterday from a few days at the lake to see it was my day, so I thought I would share my project with you today!  This is a layout I did of Ryan on his birthday last year. He is born on the 4th of July, so even though we are Canadian, the BoBunny Anthem collection was the perfect choice. I think for the past 20 years I've always scrapped his birthday photos in red/white & blue, lol. I had lots of fun stamping and just adding layers upon layers!!! Hope your all having a wonderful day!

Sun Your Buns - Let's Get Sketchy



Good Morning and Happy August! Is everyone enjoying their summer? This weekend was our long weekend here in Canada, so we had an extra day off to enjoy the beautiful weather! Today is a new reveal at Let's Get Sketchy. Our sketch was done by our Oh So Fabulous Brenshevia. I love working with her sketches. I'm really enjoying the new trend of paper strips. I've been going through my old photos and this one is of Ryan way back in 1993 on a little holiday to Kelowna, B.C. What little boy doesn't love sun and sand! I used some of my Key Lime Collection from Bo Bunny for this one. It's so bright and fun. I'm really enjoying stepping out of my "earthy colour" comfort zone and trying something new. I hope you can pop by and play along with us and Get Your Sketch On!!!
