That Intent Look

When Xander gets his attention fixated on something (usually Mitzi), it is nearly impossible to get his attention away from it. I guess you could say he's a bit stubborn. This layout uses one of my current favorite new lines, it is Pink Paislee's Amber Road.
Products Used: Patterned Paper - Pink Paislee, Amber Road; Pearl/Rhinestone swirl - Prima Say it in Pearls; Red pearls - Recollections; rub-on - Fancy Pants; rub-ons alphas - American Crafts; Chipboard alphas (Intent) - American Crafts Thickers; Heart punch - Creative Memories.

Teasing Xander

This is a layout that I did at a recent weekend crop. The pictures are from February 2007 not long after we brought Xander into our home. The scan's a little wonky because there's some dimensions on the cream flowers and the Prima pearl centers. I liked the way this one came out, but the more I look at it, the more I wish I would've added another piece of pp under the top circle.
Products Used: Patterned Papter - S.E.I., Madera Island; Glittered chipboard - Making Memories; Die-cut - Colorbok (painted with MM chocolate paint); Flowers - from Michael's bridal section; Pearls & Pearl Centers - Prima; Fabric Alphas - Prima; Ink - Colorbox, Dark Brown.

Card for my nephew's 3rd birthday

This is a card for my nephew's 3rd birthday. I can't believe he's 3 already and by the end of the month he's going to have a baby sister. :) I just love the new Jillibean paper lines. That's where this kraft patterned paper came from. I thought the line with all the numbers would be fitting for various birthday cards.

I don't know why but the scanner gave me fits on this card. Even though I set it to just scan the card, it still scanned as an 8.5 x 11.

Finally some layouts to post

I finally have some layouts that I'm really pleased with how they turned out. I just wish I could get good scans or pics of them. They always look so much better in the albums than when I post on here.

I'm just posting one for now, this is a layout of our oldest cat, Mitzi. She was being curious snooping around my scrap supplies, although you can't tell that from the pic.

Products Used: PP & Lace Doilie paper - Basic Grey Indian Summer; Cardstock - Club Scrap; Felt embellishments - Basic Grey Woolies; Alpha stickers - American Crafts Puffy Thickers & American Crafts Remarks; Die-Cut - Colorbok, sprayed with Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels; Pearls - Kaisercraft.
