Glitter, Glitter Everywhere!

I love glitter, and I know many of you do too! I created this layout for a Fabulous Friday Design Team project several weeks ago, and wanted to share it with you! *Leave a comment with a link to your blog post of any project using glitter, and I'll draw a winner the 3rd week of February for a prize!
I applied dark cocoa glitter around the edges of each photo with Martha Stewart glitter glue. I next chose random polka dots on my patterned paper and applied dark cocoa, carnation pink, bubble gum pink, and fuschia glitter.
I also chose glitter thickers from American Crafts for part of my title, and added more fuschia glitter to the surface of the word, "rose." Next, I wove glitter tape through the lower edge of the pink fiber underneath my photos. Finally, I added 2 glitter covered dots, in dark cocoa, over the 2 letter "o"s I printed from my desktop!
So, there you have it---glitter, glitter, everywhere! I had a lot of fun with this layout, and I was happy to get to use some pink, as I have all boys!

Can't Wait to Scrapbook This!

We are currently on vacation on the island of Culebra, Puerto Rico, and our son, Ezra just LOVES the beach and everything about it! He loves the SAND, salt, water, sea life, people - everything! I can't wait to scrapbook these photos from our trip, and here is one of my faves!

Just a Little Crop

I love to scrapbook! Since I was a little girl, I have loved paper, coloring utensils, and making things! In our small town, I have found a few dedicated ladies who also love paper and creating things with the photographs that document our lives! Here is a little glimpse of my studio, and a few of the ladies of The Papercrafting League.

A Friend's Layout

Happy New Year!

For a new year twist, I thought I would showcase my best friend's work here on my blog! Her name is Holly, and we met at church during a MOPS meeting! (Mothers of PreSchoolers) She was already crafty, but I guess you could say that I introduced her to the fabulous world of papercrafting/scrapbooking the way the hobby is currently trending. She took off with flying colors, and has developed her own personal style! She created this piece as a gift for her brother's wedding! I think you'll agree she has the gift!
