Tree Damage

The February blizzards tore a lot of branches from the 2 cedar tees out front. My neighbor had some guys out to do some work for her and I got an estimate. Basically was better off to take the trees down. I will actually get more sun in my front yard now. Maybe now I can grow flowers!!

Collage entry

I haven't done many collages so this was a challenge for me. My photo printer can do 5X7, 4X6 or 81/2 X 11 so I printed two 8 1/2 X 11 collage and had to cut out the photos on the right side to fit onto the collage. Then I also had to cut out the center photo and double mat it. I added pop dots to the back. I didn't have much room around the collage so decided to punch out the circles from the pattern paper. Some circle have pop dots to make them stick out and some have large brads in the center.

Quick lay-out

Here is my 10 gadget pages. Notice the cute little owl stamp from Maya Road. The large die cute is from Jenny Bowlin.

spring lay-out

Here is a cute lay-out I spent tons of time on. Mostly I just wanted to make the little pennant title. I printed the letters on a piece of patterned card stock that I cut to 4X6 and ran it through my printer. Then I punched the letters out with my small flower punch. Cut the little pennants and punched holes in the corners to thread the scrapbook floss through.

New obsession

Here is the latest time consuming project-I am sorting and labeling my paper stash. I love my label maker. I am finding lots of oddly sorted papers that I have duplicates of.

Tag You're IT!

Here is my Scooter Tag. He is surfing back and forth on the tag using a slider.

Sisters Page

Here is the page I have been working on for over a week. I had a lot of trouble making the patterned paper work with the design.

scrapbook page

I love this lay out made from a kit I had picked up at a convention- just 4 papers, ribbon, buttons and the envelop and library card. See how I made the letters for my title from a start punch.

Great croppin weekend!!

Friday evening I went to a crop with my get croppin friends. The hardest thing was to get organized to get ready. Thank goodness my friend Susan was having the same problem! I have a new gadget- a labeler. So at midnight I was labeling my paper by product line. Needless to say I have a way to go before I complete that task. More photos to follow.

High Ho High-Ho

Okay it's back to work I go. After visiting Gadget Gal and Petal Pusher and making them stay home from work with me, I have to go back to school. Maybe I can sneak a few minutes in tonight to finish up my photos and scrapbook pages.

Spring Break

I had a great time with the scrapping sisters during my spring break! Gadget Gal and I participated in an online crop which was a lot of fun. Then we stayed up another hour or two playing games on our I-pods. What happens after the zombies break into my house and eat my brains???? I bought so much paper and scrap items that I had to UPS them to myself. I'll get the rest of my new stash on Thursday or Friday, just in time for the weekend!!!
