She Art Mini

In this month's Creating Keepsakes magazine they feature a mini album filled with plain shipping tags with hand drawn and colored doodling. I fell in love with it and wanted to make my own mini using shipping tags, doodling and paint. The album was a great jumping of point, and I soon found myself really into the painting and layering. I did this whole album yesterday evening, I just went for it, playing and not being picky. I love the way it came out. I even added a 'SHE ART' girl to the cover (I love the idea of using them in places other than a canvas).

Can't for the life of me...

This is the last LO out of my scrappy long weekend and I can not for the life of me find the source of the scraplift.  I jotted down a sketch of a LO I saw somewhere and forgot to write down the source.  I have flipped through my CK mag, the Studio Calico Gallery and the Two Peas DT Gallery and can not find the LO.  So whoever came up with this lovely design thank-you because I really like this LO :)

Last Day of the Easter Long Weekend

Its the last day of what has been an awesome Easter Long Weekend.  We have enjoyed loads of outdoor time hanging in the backyard, grilling, Ryan playing guitar and the girls chasing the dog.  We have worked out and played hard too.  This morning I got to sleep in, and woke up to pancakes.  I even got to go to the gym and the grocery store without any kids in tow!  Trust me that was a treat. This afternoon Kayleigh and I went on a big girl bike ride, she even 'stretched' after her exercise :) LOL. 

Thought I would share two pages I scrapped this morning while the girls watched a movie.
I have been admiring LO's with borders made out of little scraps of PP of late and thought I would give it a try.  A great way to use your scraps.
One of my favorite photos and moments from the cruise.  I used some lace paper as a stencil with my glimmer mist to make the background.  I also used glimmer mist on white streamers to mimic the look of the streamers in the pic. There is a glare on the transparency used on the LO, in real life it doesn't look noticeable.

Princess Scrappies

The long weekend is awesome so far, had a great run, an Easter outing, lots of relax time for scrappies and oh yeah a Weiner Dog Escapee adventure too. Here are some Princess pages I have been working on.
Had to throw in a pic of the Wienz :)

Easter at Billings Estate

A rainy day spent at Billings Estate. We gathered eggs by completing activities like egg dying, making chocolate, crafts, face painting and petting animals. Once we earned our eggs the Easter Bunny awarded the kids with more candy :) Although the day wasn't the story book picture of the girls frolicking through grass covered hills, in pretty dresses in search of Easter Eggs it was a fun day.

She is...

I finished this girl this morning while doing some painting with Kayleigh. We had some fun one on one time getting messy and trying to keep the dog out of trouble. I am quite surprised Beau didn't get paint on him, ever try painting with a wiener dog in your lap? LOL

Happy 3rd Birthday Kasey

It was Kasey's 3rd Birthday yesterday, ask how old she is and she says 4!  I wanted to make the morning special by making her pancakes but lets be honest I was too tired and lazy, so we drove to McD's and ordered pancakes to take home.  I served them on princess plates though :) In the afternoon the girls had a mini spa day at Goobers and had their nails, hair, and make up done.  They loved the special attention. For dinner we ordered pizza, opened some pressies, and ate the DORA cake that the girls and I made.  TRUST ME...scroll through to the end of all these pictures, because the cake is so worth it. LOL.
