Check out these pages

These are some layouts and projects I created while on My Little Bit of Whimsy Design Team. I loved the buttons she sent me each month to create with (especially the acorn button). Anyway, I have had these hanging in my scrap room and realized I hadn't posted them yet. Thanks for looking!

Vivian's Valentine/Birthday Invitation

I made 10 of these cute cards last night! They are going to be Vivian's Valentine/Birthday party invitations! I borrowed the Wild Card Cricut cartridge from my good scrapping buddy-which has an owl card I couldn't resist making him a pink owl! I'm pleased with the results!

It's been quite some time since I've worked on a scrapbook page. I was inspired, of course, by the beautiful work over at Creative Scrappers. So here's my page.

More projects

Here's a collection of projects I've been working on

This page is a monochromatic orange page. I love how the blue in the photos contrast with the orange theme.

These photos I altered in Picasa. I had to take my camera along to the 3D viewing of Monsters vs Aliens. My daughter Vivian loves aliens, so it was the perfect opportunity to scrap with the alien themed Crate Paper. Sketch is by Debbie Gaydos.
This paper screams for my Hailey Bird. Perfect for scrapping girls. It's K&Co's Greenhouse by Carolyn Gavin-found at Michaels!

More of the Carolyn Gavin's Greenhouse mixed with Sass Lass!

Do you see the bee buttons by My Little Bit of Whimsy! They couldn't have fit better onto Vivian's soccer page since her team name was the Stingers!

Summmer time, summertime, sum sum, summertime

We've been super busy this summer and I have some new pages to post. I enjoyed working with these beachy photos and wanted to share. Thanks for looking!

My Little Bit of Whimsy has Pins!!!

I think these are going to be favorites of mine! Check them out

Stephanie is keeping up with all the hot trends by creating these adorable pins! I am drooling! I seriously can think of quite a few papers that these will fit on perfectly! Plus, she's also created Pac Man embellies! You must go have a peak!!


Hi friends. I know it's been quite some time since I last posted. We have been super busy. We had family to our house and visited many different attractions--Gettysburg, Hershey Park, Washington, DC! Loads of fun-plus, playing with our 17 month old niece-made it extra special! Then the following week my two nephews came up for a surprise visit. The girls and them played hard everyday followed by Vacation Bible School each evening. I'm just starting to get back into the swing of things. I've missed being on-line as much, but I thoroughly enjoyed time spent with family!
Here are some projects I created with the Whimsy Buttons--I love these adorable creations that Stephanie creates!

Would you like to see

some of my Cosmo Cricket projects? I think Cosmo Cricket rocks, every season they come out with the most exciting and irresistable designs. I mean...can paper products get any cuter and fun than Cosmo? I really don't think so--I've been going through my archives and looking for projects I've created with their products, which by the way most of it's still available--how great is that? Often on manufacturers discontinue products and they become unavailable, which means we can still design with our favorites and keep them in our trusty stash. Here goes some of my favorite Cosmo Cricket pages...
