A Father's Love

Here is a layout I did for the latest PageMaps sketch contest - I can't wait until the new contest and the latest set of sketches are posted each month...I'd had these PP's for awhile, waiting for the right subject/pictures, & I thought these were appropriate. I went crazy with the glitter on this layout. I covered some chipboard with it, and then I sealed it with Glossy Accents. Then, I made my little birdie with stamps, added some glitter, sealed it, and then added the eyelets. Finally, I added a heart brad, covered it with glitter & sealed it too. The glitter definitely goes with my daughter's attitude - very diva lately! :-)

Love the bling!

Wanted to add a layout that I recently did...I got this page kit from Shabby Pink Designs and have been saving it until I got a picture that I could turn into sepia-tone. So I finally got this picture of my DD playing around, turned it into sepia, and put together this kit. I love the colors of this kit, plus I love the bling...sooooooooooo much!! My daughter...what a dear!!

Pagemaps Spring Card Contest

I have a friend who is getting married, and she is having a "spring" bridal shower. So I decided to make her this card. Her colors are lavender, therefore the purple accents!! I think the flower PP in the corner helps make it feel more spring-y, and more elegant at the same time. Plus, I love those little blingy brads. It is a tri-fold card, which opens up, and I will put a gift card inside. I decided to enter it into the Pagemaps Spring Card Contest. Congratulations Sheila!! We love you girl!!

Misc. stuff on my brain!

Well, I have been blog-negligent, among other things, but for here, that is the priority. I have been super busy with work (which is also my church) and I have loved every minute of it. But some things were neglected. The family, laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, scrapping, the blog(s)...but I am slowly catching up. I want to share one of my latest layouts that I am proud of. Somewhat not my style, but I love how it turned out. The journaling says "A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart." That sums it up girl is getting so big!
P.S. I was so excited to win the Grand Prize over at BackPorchMemories!! A free six-month subscription to their page kits. I have been stalking their website and love what I see, so I am excited to get a chance to create with them!! Thank you BPM!!
