Cute Card

I got this cute card idea at a friends shower and had to recreate it.  Perfect for any shower or stagette.

It's so easy to make.  Just fold a piece of paper in half and trace circles for the boobs and butt shape.  Than  use some old scraps to form the underwear and line it with some ribbon or lace.  My card was too small to do this but you could also add some button details.

Lasting Memories Challenge #40

This weeks challenge at Lasting Memories is all about PAPER PIECING!  Here is my DT contribution.  I found this paper piecing pattern in a really old copy of Scrapbook Etc and thought it was perfect for this page.

Some More From MEXICO!

I actually finally finished my honeymoon album at a scrapbook retreat last month but I haven't revealed them all so far.  Here are a couple.  Hopefully they will be inspiring for everyone who has topical vacation pictures sitting around waiting to be scrapped.

Sunset at Night

This is a collection of picture from around our resort at night.  For all my resort pictures I grouped them by theme instead of by date to save space and reduce the number of random layouts I had to do.

 Chichen Itza

This is the second layout I did for our trip to Chichen Itza.  The first can be found here.  I love the simplicity of this layout.  Sometimes less really is more.

Lasting Memories Challenge #38

This weeks challenge over at Lasting Memories is this great sketch with a circle theme.

The page is of a lunch at White Spot the day before my wedding.  My cousin and I grew up with their milk shakes and pirate pack kids meals.  Since both of our husbands to be are from non-Canadian families they missed out on the childhood fun. 

Check out the Lasting Memories blog for more inspiration and to play along with this weeks challenge.

Scrapbook Challenges and

Again I combined two challenges into one layout.  They colour and embellishment inspiration came from the Scrapbook Challenges crop prompt photo shown below.  I combined it with sketch #119 from The Scrappiest.

A couple of work friends and I often have "Finer Things Club" meeting (all you fans of The Office should appreciate this).  This is one they had to give me a gift before my wedding.  They are so sweet!

Another One for Lasting Memories

This is my second submission for this weeks Lasting Memories challenge.  I already completed my DT layout so this is just my normal entry.  I actually initially did this for my DT entry before I came up with my other little stroke of creativity found here.

Check out the Lasting Memories Challenge #37 post to play along with us.

Cherry & Vanilla

I was exciting to play along with The Scrappiest blog when I saw this sketch.  It just looked like so much fun.

These photos are of my husband and his best friend.  They both happened to grow moustaches at the same time and were feeling like such rebels they wanted to do a bad ass photo shoot.  Unfortunately even the addition of beer and cigars couldn't save this.  It didn't turn out very bad ass at all. The title on the page is cherry and vanilla because those are the flavours of cigars they bought...I thought it was the epitome of not bad ass.

I had so much fun with this page and I'm happy with how it turned out.  Check out The Scrappiest post for Sketch 118!

Featured at Scrapbook Challenges

I got featured of at Scrapbook Challenges for my Fondue layout.  It's funny because I struggled with scrapbooking this photo for so long.  I'm glad the layout turned out so well and it feels great to be recognized.

Check out the Featured Photos page at Scrapbook Challenges.

Gift Opening

I did this layout to show the gift opening after our wedding.  I was amazed by how generous everyone was and it was such a fun this to look forward to after the wedding.

I divided this page into two sections because we did a gift opening with each of our different families.  The left side is my family and the right side is his...or I guess both sides are both of our families.

Lasting Memories Challenge #37

This weeks challenge at Lasting Memories is a photo inspiration for mother's day.  Unfortunately I don't have any new pictures of my mom to scrap for this one but I did use the colour scheme from this photo.

I love the colours in this photo because they are so feminine so I made girly layout of me and my cousin last spring.  I used this Scrapbook Challenges sketch I found on their last blog hop.

Check out the Lasting Memories blog for other layout submissions and to play along.

Another One Inspired by Scrapbook Challenges

All the inspiration on the Scrapbook Challenges blog hop was overwhelming.  There were so many beautiful layouts and sketches I want to use so I have another layout based on one of their own sketches.

This layout is from a trip to Seattle with my cousin when we went to this dirty little 24 hr bar.  So bad it was good.

Also watch out for the Lasting Memories Mother's Day Challenge tomorrow.

Two Challenges in One

I was so excited when I found this page sketch during the Scrapbook Challenges blog hop.  I thought it was great inspiration for a photo I have been trying to scrap for about two years!  Every time I try I find I don't have any inspiration for it...now its finally done.

I used in combination with the From Screen 2 Scrap challenge for Love Actually.

Here is my page!  I love the simplicity and the fun details on the side.  It's great to finally have this layout done.  I am working hard to play catch up so I don't have a million half down albums sitting around...this is one more page down.

Watch out for my Lasting Memories Mothers Day Challenge post on Sunday!

My First Lasting Memories Challenge

The topic for this Lasting Memories challenge is "It's All About You".

When is life ever more "all about you" than when you're getting married...NEVER!  This is a page of all the dresses I tried on before I found the one.  There were a lot of No's, a couple Maybe's, but only one YES!

Check out the Lasting Memories blog for lots more layouts from the rest of the design team and to join in the fun yourself...there are prizes for this one so it definitely worth playing along.

Spring has Sprung...

...and to celebrate I am posting this spring layout from last year.  Me and some girlfriends went to Penticton to float down their channel.  It was a great girls day and a nice way to recover from my friends stagette the night before.  I love spring in BC!
