Berry Sweet

 This is the layout that goes with the one I posted a few weeks ago. It is the second layout I made using the Mayberry WOTG. I love the canvas buttons!! They are so easy to stamp on and add that little extra to a layout. I switched the colours up from what they were supposed to be and the half circle borders were done using B&T instead of stamped paper. The title was done with the Token Alphabet stamp.
  These pics are of my two youngest picking berries at camp last year. Can you tell I'm a scrapbooker?? I even remembered to take a close up of the berries (:

Parents - Scrap & Stamp Challenge

 Long time no see!!! I feel like I'm so out of touch with reality these days!!! I am enjoying camp though and have had a chance to do some reading (: I just finished The Book of Negros (amazing by the way) and have moved on to Room. I hope you are all having a chance to enjoy the warm weather without melting away!! It's so hot here I'm even breaking a sweat scrapbooking ):

 Anyway, this weeks challenge at Scrap & Stamp is to do a layout which involves Parents in some way. For my layout I used pics of my parents, some old some new. All of the materials I used were part of CTMHs You & Me kit. It was hard to get the newer picture the same tone as the old pics but I hope they work OK together. I thought I would leave the journaling for my Mom to do that is why it is still blank.
 So I hope you can join us this week and don't forget to use a stamp somewhere on your layout!!

Scrap & Stamp - Fishin'

 This week's challenge at Scrap & Stamp is a sketch by our very own, very talented Vickey (:


Just remember if you are playing along you also need to use a stamp somewhere on your layout!!

Here is my take on Vickey's sketch:

 These pictures might be a bit familiar, I used some of Azelyn by herself on the last layout I did for S&S, but I wanted to scrap the rest so here they are (: You will notice one important member of the family is not in the pics, what else is new eh!?
 For this layout I dug out an old paper pad I bought a few years ago and it worked perfectly!! It's from American Traditions?? The cs is CTMH and I ran it through my Cuttlebug to emboss it. The little licence plate is Karen Foster and the twine is from Sew Easy. The ink, buttons and stamps (Poster Board Alpha and It's a Beautiful Day) are all CTMH.

 So I hope you will all play along and link yourself up over at the Scrap & Stamp blog!!! Have a great weekend!!

It's Party Time!!

 I was just going through my pictures and realized I never posted the second layout I did using the Fanfare WOTG. I did both layouts using pics of Kieran's birthday but one was with his friends and the other is with family. We invited our parents to come for cake after the kids party was over. I made cupcakes for the kids party and served the cheesecake Kieran wanted when the adults came. I don't know about you but I wasn't going to put the work into the cheesecake just to have the kids waste it!!
The only thing I used on this layout that was not CTMH was the scalloped circle punch which was SU.
