Silly Faces Art Journal Layout

Just before Taylor left on her mission Hannah decided that she needed some funny pictures of us to take with her.  So she grabbed her phone and ran around taking silly pictures of all of us.  They crack me up and I home they do to when she looks at them!  I used different My Crush items and the Laughing Lola PML.  The My Crush items are being discontinued so if you would like to see them, go to my website:

Simple Pocket Scrapbooking Layout

This s a really simple pocket scrapbooking layout.  All I did was slide the pictures in their pockets and add a few Picture My Life cards.  I did make one picture really small and added it to one of the cards before inserting it into the pocket.  No wonder this is the number one way of scrapbooking right now, so super easy and cute!

Dance Recital Digital Layout

I was looking for some pictures to put on the Blossom Studio J pages since that is the paper I am featuring this month and decided to do one of my daughter's dance recital pictures.  I picked these pictures in particular because of their costume.  It is a color that is really subtle in the Blossom papers and I wanted the blue colors in Blossom to tone down all the pink which I think it did.  So quick and so cute, I just love how it turned out!  To create your own Studio J layouts click on the link below:

Making Connections Event My Crush Layout

I was able to go to a Close To My Heart event here in Seattle and it was so amazing!  I did a quick layout in My Crush book with the pictures.  I used the Boardwalk Washi tape which I just love with all its sentiments on it.  I put one of the sentiments on White Daisy cardstock and added it as an embellishment.  I also finished it off with some embellishments from the Chalk It Up Assortment.  I'm having so much fun with this book that I ordered another one with the June My Crush special!  Can't wait to play with that one!
