The inspiration for my layout is my sweet niece Anna, & her dreamy ways! At family get together you always find Anna with her animal friends! If it is furry & has a tail she is usually off in some world with it! Anna is quiet & calming along with her fur babies... in their own dreamy world!
From my stash I used Prima papers from the Strawberry Kisses Collection.. they were soft & spring-like! So I felt they were perfect!
various punches & dies. The leaf portion was a Martha Stewart rose leaf punch. I inked all layers of the flowers with Distress Walnut Stain & Worn Lipstick, the leaf is inked with Peeled Paint.
This was a fun layout to do! I was off in my own dreamy world thinking of spring!
Thanks so much for dropping by! You guys are the best!

My inspiration today is my sister! We will be having a little mid-winter getaway at Harrah's for a couple nights... so I thought this would be perfect as a tag for a bottle of wine to share!!
I used the adorable image from Lisa's Altered Art , scraps of Graphic45 papers, a few Prima flowers, and some scraps of ephemera. Just a bit of fussy cutting, glue & ink & I have a tag! It measures about 4x4.. so probably a bit bigger than most... but I will get the BIG bottle of wine , so it doesn't look so large!! :)
I really enjoyed making this for my sister!! I know we will have fun!
Thanks so much for visiting, you guys are the best!

*Cut 2 printed paper circles of the same size.
*Cut 1 circle a bit smaller. This will be the backing
*Adhere the paper to the base circle
* Ink the edges to give it a finished look!
* Adhere the ribbon with 2 sided tape, leaving a bit overhang on the sides. This will wrap around the back.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I really appreciate it!

I used the yummy Creative Imaginations LooLah papers. I thought they were perfect for the picture! They also had a sticker that was great for those little details! I made the scalloped dies cut & will be posting a "how to" in a day or so.
All edges were inked with 3 colors of Distress Ink- Faded Denim, Peeled Paint & Worn Lipstick. The little flowers are K &Co... I wrapped wire around a little lollipop stem & attached the wire on back of flowers to make them a little "springy". They are much more dimensional than they are showing up in the photo.
Thanks so much for stopping by! You guys are the best :)

The inspiration for the layout was a photo of my husband taken in late 50's. We have less than 10 photos of my husband from childhood through his teens- so the ones we have are very precious to me! It may be a bit grainy... but I still love it! I seen the spinning top & my mind started thinking...Time Spins Away! And that is so true!
I wanted to use yummy retro look papers. This is a combo of Pink Paislee & Girls Paperie Vintage Travel papers.
Again, I used Bo Bunny Flower Child chip board to add some interest to the other side! I scattered some stars about the whole layout to give some detail to those empty areas.
I really had a good time with this layout. When I started many months ago I was completely uninspired... then poof ... I knew what I wanted to do & it felt great!
Thanks so much for visiting & taking a peek at my blog! I appreciate it so very much :)

HI Friends! I wanted to share with you how easy it is to make the netting used in my layout!
Cut and stretch to your desire!
I adhered it with a couple swipes of double sided tape!
Thanks Friends! You guys are the best! :)
YEAH I scrapped! It sure felt good! Not too sure if I am happy with the results...but had fun doing it so... such is life!
The inspiration for my layout is a pic of my Dad taken in the early 80's. He loved the ocean even though he lived in the landlocked Midwest! He fell in love with it during World War 2 while serving in the navy. I think it gave him some calm & peace during such turbulent times. We lost my Dad in 1989. I miss him all the time & love remembering....
I used the Little Yellow Bicycle Vita Bella papers. They are several years old, but I love that collection! All edges were inked with Distress Ink : Aged Mahogany, Shabby Shutters & Broken China. The foil framing is cut strips ,also from the Vita Bella collection.
The little tags are Reminisce "By the Sea" die cut stickers.
I had a lot of fun making the net & waves. The waves are felt strips from Queen & Company & were originally white. I inked them with a metallic rub that i purchased on Joann.com (It is made by a company called Craft-T). I used the copper rub & highlighted it with Broken China Distress ink.
The Netting was a produce bag & I will be posting a tutorial on how I made it... super easy. I should have that up later today or tomorrow!
The die cut greenery what made by using a Quickutz Branch & Berries die, cut with my good old hand cranked Big Shot. I thought they looked a little "sea weedy". The shells & branches were dotted with gold Liquid Pearls.
I am making a real attempt to use up existing supplies! I seem to have hoarded quite a bit...Now to use it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by & sharing my layout with me! :)

HELLO Friends! Happy 2012 & so happy to see you! As you may (or may not) have noticed, I have have been on hiatus from scrap booking for about 6 months. I feel re-inspired & ready to scrap again! I have been visiting blogs & sites-just not scrapping. Now with the holidays over & some time freed up... I am feeling the mojo coming on!!
I wanted to share with you, some great scrap apps for scrap booking! I hope more sites take advantage of the tablet/smart phone boom & also get app savvy!
LOVE THIS! Michael's app not only has inspiration, it also has coupons, events, products & much more.. all that can be personalized! I find it very fun to just glance through this app while waiting for appointments! It also has a scanner to help you while shopping! The Link is for I-phone & Android app! FREE
The app for Joann's i found to be more useful for coupons & casual browsing. I hope they expand it to include more personalized options! FREE
What's not to love!! Tons of inspiration! Etsy at your fingertips! Be sure to check the handmade embellishments & digi scrapbook sections! FREE
CLEAR AND SIMPLE SCRAPS
This is a $4.99 app in available in the ITunes app store. I have not tried this one, as i find it a bit much for an app, although it may well be worth it. They do also have an app called CSS DAILY LITE that is only .99. Any users out there care to comment?
Yep..sketches- for both scrap pages & cards. This app comes in various prices from FREE to $4.99. I found the very handy & would be great to take on a crop! Plus it has a sample layout/card using the sketch with a complete supply list for the project!
2 Peas registered users will love this FREE mobile app! Access to everything the website has to offer!
I hope you have enjoyed the APP post! If you know any good ones, please let me know!!
Thanks for visiting!!! :)
