Little Ski-Doo it's up to You

This layout was with Erin's challenge in mind, use a title of a song. It was also to make my son Aidan happy (he thought it had been awhile since I had done a layout of him.
All materials are CTMH. I used the You Rock paper pack, Ticket Tags and Spot On Backgrounds stamp set. I also used the new Irresistables Lots of Dots colour ready alphabet (stickers) and Heartfelt Die Cuts (felt), and On Target dimensional elements.

Challenge entered: Scrap and Stamp use your stash. I made a point of using the chipboard circles, heartfelt diecuts, and Ticket Tags (which I have had for over a year and not used yet ): The hemp, concho and button were all from my stash too.

My Baby is Growing up too fast!!!

This is a layout of my oldest son Codie. He's 15 but it seems like just yesterday he was a small little baby in my arms. Now he towers a whole foot over me and looks more like a man!!!
My Aunt Kathy took this picture which is no small feat!! Codie is at that stage where as soon as he sees a camera his hand goes up to block out his face. I really like this pic of him (:

I used the CTMH special this month called Felicity. It is a paper pack and stamp set combo. The buttons and photo corners are CTMH and the blue bling was from my stash. I also used the new CTMH stamp set called Love You Forever for the sentiment in the corner (from the famous Robert Munsch story). I debated on putting a title but thought that the sentiment said it all (: My Aunt Denise did the sewing on the brown cardstock for me, thanks Nise!!!!

Dry Erase Board

I've seen a lot of these lately and had to try to make one myself!! I bought the frame (16 x 20)at Michaels for about $5 with my coupon. I used CTMH's new paper pack called Caboodle. The green will match my kitchen (:. I used the Posterboard Alpha, small Friendship Alpha, Boutique Borders, and Dec STOM Notice the Details stamp sets. The ribbon, brads,buttons,and ink are all CTMH. I also used the new Tiny Tabs. The loop punch was from Martha Stewart.
I can't wait to get this on my wall and start using it!! I just need to get to the store to pick up a dry erase marker.
I'm not sure if this will qualify but I'm counting it as one of my pages for the challenge even though it's going on the wall and not in my album.
4 down 100 to go!!!

Drama Queen - 2nd Layout for 2010

My Aunt Kathy took this picture of Azelyn when she was having a sucky, poor poor me moment. If you look close you can see the tear going down her cheek (:

I used CTMH's new paper pack Topstitch, the ribbon, Big Bloom and Filigree charm are also CTMH. The little pearls/flowers are Prima. I used the SU punch for the scalloped edge. Lyrical Letters cricut cartridge was used for the title.

Thanks Carla for the idea for this layout!! I used Sketch #84 from Creative Scrappers, which she had posted on her blog.

I would also like to thank my friend Deb for trusting me with her sewing machine & teaching me how to use it!! The last time I used one was in grade 8 and I broke it!!!
I did the sewing on the chocolate cardstock (:

First Layout of 2010

This is a layout of my son Kieran on his first day of school. The paper is from one of the big pads I had, the little chipboards are from the dollar store. I used Lyrical Letters and Graphically Speaking cricut cartridges for the title. The photo-corners were cut using an SU punch. Most cardstock and ribbon are CTMH.
I used CTMH's Reflections book for the idea for this layout. I used Sidebar - Main Frame for both pages, I just rotated it for the first page.
