First Day of School

Today is the first day of school! The kids were so excited! Ty went to Kindergarten and Faith went to 1st grade. I had a little time to scrap and couldn't resist scrapping their pictures.

I used Bella Blvd's "Midterm" line and some Elle's Studio tags. They go good together don't you think!?

This is one of the Elle's Studio tags.

And the another Elle's tag behind the Belle Blvd. alphas.

Here is also another layout I worked on. I used the Elle's Studio Sketch. I won last week (doing a happy dance)! I love her stuff! And I again I used some Bella Blvd paper. I used four different lines. Don't you just love how well they all mix together!?

See the little button, that is an Elle's tag scrunched around it. I love this Bella Blvd sticker. It fits Hannah perfectly.

And another Elle's tag with Bella Blvd.

Thank you for stopping by! I'm praying my kids are having a great first day!

Elle's Studio Sketch and Bella Blvd

Happy Monday! I had a busy weekend and had a great time spending it with family. Over the weekend I got a little scrappy time. I cleaned our basement so I deserve it right?! LOL I love the new Elle's Studio Sketch so I printed off some picture and pulled out my Bella Blvd paper and got to work. I want to cherish this cute moment in Hannah's life. I managed to mix 3 different Bella Blvd paper lines on this layout, "Mr.Boy", "Midterm", and "Lovey Dovey".

The story is the other day Hannah was being really quite and I went to see why. And there she was in a corner in the living room playing with a brush. She was so fascinated with it. It was so cute she was trying to brush her hair. I ran and grabbed the camera to capture the moment.

I used one of the new "Summer Memories" Journaling tags.

And here you can see an Elle's date tag. And also a cut out from the Bella Blvd "Lovey Dovey" paper.

I took some mesh netting and a Jenni Bowlin paint and dabbed it to make the yellow dots.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill, Patterned Paper: Bella Blvd "Lovey Dovey", "Midterm", "Mr. Boy", Alphas: Bella Blvd, Paint: Jenni Bowlin, Tags: Elle's Studio.

Kindergarten Mini album with Bella Blvd.

The other day I took Ty to school for Kindergarten orientation. He had fun seeing his classroom, meeting his teacher, meeting new friends, and a bus ride. I wanted to do a mini album for him to remember the day. I used a Prima canvas album and all Bella Blvd. paper and embellishments. I mixed "Mr.Boy" and "Midterm" lines.

This is Ty and his teacher Mrs. Goss. She is wonderful with boys who have a little more energy then they know what to with kwim?! I cut out the apple from "Hello Beautiful" and used it as mask for the apple on the front.

Here he is putting his name on the attendance chart and the next page he is making his name plate for his spot in the class. I used Jenni Bowlin paint for the first page and Mr Huey mist for the second page. You can click on the images to see them bigger.

Close up off the schedule.

That name plate sticker was perfect for this page.

The next two pages is where he is getting his mail and working on his first assignment. Here I used some more mist with the Bella Blvd.

Close up:

These next two pages is some random pictures and the bus ride.

Gotta love that flamingo LOL! Ty did!

Bus ride:

This is a poem Mrs. Goss wrote for the class. I used all the different alphas from Bella Blvd.

Thank you for looking! Have a great week!

Some Scrappy Time

Yay It's Friday! Today we had kindergarten orientation for Ty. He was so excited and got a bus ride! I love his teacher she is excellent with boys who have more energy then they know what to do with. I'm working on a mini album and will share when I'm done.

The other day I spent the day scrapping with some Bella Blvd. goodies I was blessed to have won during the "Scrappy Mom" contest. I just love the colors and embellishments Stephanie designs.

This is Hannah playing "Peek a Boo". Yes, I used these pictures twice but one is for my mom's album. I mixed a little "Lovey Dovey" and "Estate Sale".

This one is for her 1st birthday. I used "Hello Beautiful".

See how I put a "1" on the cupcake.

Peek a Boo

The other day my sons were playing peek a boo with Hannah. They do "Where's the baby?" from the movie "Ice Age". So everytime you say "where's the baby?" she would put her hands on her ears then she finally got it and started putting them over her eyes! Here are some fun pictures I snapped. I used the Sweet kit from Sweet Peach. It features the beautiful papers from Authentique.

Sweet Peach August Reveal

Sweet Peach has a real treat for you this month. The Sweet kit has the gorgeous new lines from Authentique "Blissful" and Sassafras Lass "Sunshine". I just love grey and yellow together and you throw in a dash of pink and I'm in heaven! The embellishments are so pretty and fun!
Here are some of my layouts:

I made the photo look vintage. Loved cutting the flowers!
