Cool Dude

This was for a challenge to use one of everything on your layout but you could use as many supplies as you liked.  It was pretty neat to push myself this way.

Supplies:  all are completely random - pp, Thickers, CTMH star stamp, Jillibean Soup star embellie, flower, brad, washi tape, ribbon, Stickles, twine, gems

So here's what I had one of:  
  • one photo
  • one patterned paper
  • one stamp
  • one vellum word sheet
  • one piece of washi tape
  • one flower
  • one brad
  • one piece of baker's twine
  • one set of alphas (I cheated here)
  • one button
  • one ribbon
  • one embellie circle
  • used Stickles one time
  • stitched one time

I was going to just have one gem by the photo but it just didn't look right.  So, I cheated and put three:

So Happy Together

I love these photos of K and A together - they show their relationship perfectly.  Most of the time, they love each other soooo much and play together well but once in a while, not so much!  lol  This layout was also done for a challenge at SNC - to use threes on your layout and to include x's and o's.

Supplies: Fancy Pants "My Family"
Making Memories brads
Flowers - not sure of the manufacturer

Daddy & A

I did this layout as a challenge at SNC to use a monogram and do list journalling.  I love how it turned out.

I love chipboard because of the dimension and how I can recolour it.  And that's exactly what I did with the "a".  I also used old, old, old alphas for the title and painted them.

I like doing journalling from different perspectives and I felt that this one was a perfect way to talk about DH's relationship with A.

This Boy

This layout was from layout tag in November at SNC - lots of fun!

I love, love, love this line from Fancy Pants!  The designs, the colours, the embellies all have me swooning.  I know it's not super new but it doesn't matter - I still love it!

Supplies:  Fancy Pants Rough and Tough
Basic Grey Buttons
Twinery Baker's Twine

I wanted to keep the stars but not have them hanging over A's face so I cut them out and then repositioned them where I wanted them to go.
