Bubble Bath

Ready to giggle? I couldn’t help laughing when I went to check on my daughter in the bath one night. And this is what I found she had been up to…

She’d gotten can of shaving cream¬†lathered into a wild froth and created a lovely harido. A harido with a side of attitude.

Meanwhile

When my middle kid came down with a nasty cold that left her sleeping for days on end, she missed the first (and only!) snow of the season. She was so bummed. I knew I had to capture that on a layout. So, that is the first page I worked on this NSD2016.

National Scrapbook Day 2016

Whose favorite holiday happened this weekend? Mine! What? Yours too you say? Well awesome!

NSD is a time when I find lots of inspiration and I prioritize¬†time to work on this craft that I love. I felt particularly productive this time around. I’m hoping I can still get more in, because even though the day […]

But when I found the photos of my daughters apple art, I decided to raid the kitchen for little tidbits to add to my page. Natural embellishments! I combined this with challenge # 19, […]

NSD 2013 #3

Quick one. This was a challenge to scrap about yourself from Shimelle.com (#8). Scrapping about myself isn’t something new to me. But I haven’t done it in a very loooong time. So in a way that was a challenge to take time away from my other projects to talk about me. This is 6×6 for […]

NSD 2013 post #2

They say if you are going to go, go big. And I did for this one. These challenge were from both Big Picture Classes and Shimelle.com (#1, #3, #9, #11, & #17). The main challenge I focused on was try something new. So many new things for me here. The arty style, using fabric to […]

This time our family went to a Medieval Festival and also Free Comic Book Day at our local comic shop. So my scrapping came in late in the […]
