Full Speed Ahead!!

I absolutely love this picture of Aidan (: He was goofing around while he was rowing Azelyn around in the Little Row Boat, and has a hilarious look on his face. This little boat has been in our family since my Mom was a little girl.
 I took the picture with a feature on my camera where everything is black and white except for yellow or green objects. You likely can't see it but Aidan's hair has a tinge to it.
 I used the 10/03 sketch from My Little Sketch Book (minus the dinosaur) for this layout and am entering it in their challenge.

Material Used:
MME: paper and tags
CTMH: chipboard, felt, ink, and cs

Look Closely (:

Kieran was playing down the shore a bit from my Mom's. He kept peeking around the trees and making faces at me. These were a few of the shots I took.

I used the My Minds Eye paper from a kit I picked up from Peachy Cheap, the cricut cartridge Graphically Speaking for the title, and the cs and brads are CTMH.

 I used the 10/17 sketch from My Little Sketch Book for this layout. It isn't exactly the same but pretty close.

The Protector

I think this is my favorite picture of all of the ones I took this summer. Azelyn had went to the end of the dock, at camp, without her life jacket on. Kieran knowing the rule thought he better go and make sure she was OK, also without a life jacket on. He put his arm around her to make sure she didn't fall in (:

 I did this layout for the sketch challenge at Sketchabilities, and I had also used hearts to enter it in a Design Dollies challenge but I missed the boat on that one ):

Products Used:
Basic Grey's Olivia paper and stickers
CTMH stamp set State of Mind
Tim Holtz : die cut- paper rosette to make the flower
SU: embossing folder

I used the cricut to cut out the scalloped circle.

I Only Have Eyes For You!

 I just spent a wonderful 4 day weekend, with my fantabulous friend Jen, scrapbooking in Bruce Mines, Ontario. Deb and Alison from O.C. Scrapbookers hosted the Fall Flury, an event I look forward to every year!! I had a lot of fun scrapping and chatting with friends I have made there over the last few years (: Missing you already girls!!! My goal was to complete as many layouts as possible and complete as many sketches and challenges as possible. I managed to almost complete (I have finishing touches for one major project to finish) 16 pages!!!

 This layout is of Azelyn just goofing around (: Kieran had got these glasses in his loot bag from a birthday party and Azelyn had a blast with them. I thought this paper was perfect for it!

Products used:

CTMH: cardstock, ink, B&T and stickease (Hooligans), buttons, ribbon, liquid glass, and stamp (The Boo Crew) 
Cricut: October 31st cartridge (isn't that tree incredible?!)

thread- I don't remember?? A friend (thanks Kathy!!) at the crop helped me out with her sewing machine and her cricut cartridge (:

I am entering this layout in:
1) Scrap and Stamp's challenge: use stitching on your layout.
2) Heart 2 Heart Challenge: something Halloween
3) My Little Sketch Book: sketch 10/10
4) Design Dollies: purple, black, and white challenge

34 of 104 pages ): uh oh!!

The Places You Will Go (:

 I started this card a month or so ago and just finally finished it on Saturday!! It was meant to be for a challenge but I ran into trouble with my die cutting and it has taken me this long to get back to it!! I just love this little guy on the tricycle, and the sentiment is one of my favs!!
 My friends from University just had a little guy in June, so this card is to go with his gift. I have had the gift so long that he has already grown out of the size of the first outfit and I have had to go shopping again!!! I better get it out soon before his next growth spurt (:

 The stamp is Mo Manning's Bye Bye Boy. The paper is BG's Oliver, CS is CTMH. Colouring was done with copics, image stamped in Momento. The flower and buttons are from the wonderful ladies at O.C. Scrapbookers (Scrapaholics) Deb and Alison who were at the crop I went to this past weekend. The shading on the die cut was with Chalk Ink by Versamark.

 I am entering this in Paper Romance's challenge which is to use 3 buttons.
