Proud Grandma

The background patterned paper is by Karen Foster Designs.  I started distressing the edges and it ripped so I backed it with a mustard yellow Bazzill cardstock and distressed even more. 

I used an old credit card to swipe the yellow paint on the background. I used that as a base to layer under my photo.

The theme for my boys' grad was Hollywood so I had to use more film embellishements.  These strips are sticky backed fabric film strips called FabRips by Studio Calico.

Love the yellow and purple flower and the matching butterfly in the top right corner.  They are by Prima. 
The little flowers are Petaloo.  Great colour. 

I used a couple of different sticker fonts for my title.  The Quote card with the 'ma' on it slides out.  I've put my journaling for the page on it.

Isn't the butterfly perfect?  Very rustic looking.  It matches the flower in the first closeup.

Prom 2012 with Karen Foster and Sandy Lion

I stamped and misted on this layout.  Love how the background turned out.

Turtles, turtles and more turtles

It's finished.  Rick will be happy to get all my scrappy stuff off the dining room table...  Maybe after I finish the Prom layout :)

Lots of old (Making Memories, Creative Imaginations) and new (Teresa Collins, Karen Foster, Fancy Pants) patterned papers.
I love the wood bullrushes by Kaiser.

I managed to find places for lots of little creatures on this layout.  Punched dragon flies, Sandy Lion owl, Prima velvet rub-on bird and those neat ceramic mushrooms. I used my corner bulrush stamp with brown ink on the background and gold ink on the tags.

Off to work on my Prom layout before Rick insists I clean up the table.

K & Co. Smash journal

We had a Smash and Mash night at Unforgettable Memories last Friday.  I finished a few pages.

The first is my boys in their tux's looking oh so cool :)

And a picture of my kids, Rick & I, and my parents.  The first time in over 7 years that we've all been in the same place at the same time.

A page of me.  Haven't done the journaling yet.  Need to think of something clever to say...

And poor duncan suffering through an allergic reaction to we're not sure what...
I'm going to put a picture of Duncan and his new RAV4 on the other side of this page.

Graduation 2012

My first layout of my boys' graduating ceremonies.  First of many.  We have loads of great photos thanks to Grandad and my friend Lilia.

It was so neat to walk the Grand March with a handsome graduate on each arm.  When the march was over and the dancing began Duncan left Daniel and I to dance, while he went in search of one of his Grandma's for a dance.
