Indiana Jones

I was going thru our pictures and realized we had so many pictures of the dog and I decided he deserved his own scrapped pages too!  It is an 8x8 layout and I decided to go with a red to make Indi stand out.  Loved playing with the paw prints and wrapping them around the pages.  My son laughed about the "good dog" tag and asked if I was sure Indi deserved a "good dog" and I explained that even though Indi loves to eat toys and electronics, he still has his moments of "good" and we wouldn't trade him for anything! 

Another page

I realized recently that I really, really enjoy doing 8x8!  I only need an hour or two of time and I feel like I have accomplished something.  This layout was from my guys trip to Shea, my little guys first game.  The Mets colors are the orange and blue so wanted to work with those colors and I felt the orange background really made everything else just pop a bit more.

A couple of Cards

Recently made a couple of monogrammed cards for a family member.  Used a couple of different stamps then went in with a paint brush and painted the inks in.  Liked having two different options, spring and fall.  Nothing fancy, just a quick little thank you note.


Decided to start a blog so I can share some of my layouts with my friends and family.  Nothing fancy schmancy but a bit of what I do.  I have started scrapping recently and really enjoy working with paper.  I love the simplicity of paper.  The designs, the colors, the textures and oh, so many options!  Backgrounds, mats, embellished, cut, stamped, the options are limitless and I love that!  I enjoy card making and creating a place for my memories with scrapping and journaling.  Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions (helpful ones!) and have a wonderful day!
