My Dad

I was sad that I didn't get to use Club Scrap's Blueprint kit and participate in the blog hop this month. It is a perfect match for pictures of my dad. My dad was a cabinet maker for many many years. Then he was a draftsman, drawing house plans and plans for businesses in our home town. He was very good at what he did. In fact I can't think of anything that he didn't do well. Of course I might be a little biased too. So I finally had time to play with the digital kit and did a layout of him. I have an altered canvas project rolling around in my head that I hope to get done some day. I need to find some more pictures of him first. I find that I don't have too many. So today's layout features Club Scrap's September Blueprint digital kit. The eyelet & ribbon bow came from a different Club Scrap kit and the tag shape & frame was from my stash of commercial items. But everything else came from Blueprints. I made the background paper by using multiple overlays and blending modes on a plain blue paper.

Nicola & Her Trike

We got Nicola a trike for her birthday. It was a late gift, but she was quite pleased to get it. She especially loved it when her uncle pushed her around. The last time I visited she was riding on her own power.

I used Falling 4 U by Keystone Scraps. You can find it in this months Scrap Pack. I also used a free template by scrapping with Liz.

Family Reunion

While waiting for my tomato sauce to finish processing I decided to work on a layout. These are pictures from our annual family reunion (hubby's side of the family). I used a template by fiddle-dee-dee from Scrap Stacks monthly scrap pack. The kit I used is Captured by Studio Blagovesta. It can be found in this month's Daily Digi pack. I also used a Magic Blend 2 overlay by Studio Rosey Posey. Thanks for looking!

Oopsie Daisy card

Between visiting grandchildren, sending a child off to college for the first time and sending another child off for their first year of High School and the garden has made for an extremely busy month. I have had no time to spend creating. Our family sitting around the dinner table has gone from 6 - 8 to 3 - 4 people in just a few short months. It has been rather a shock and difficult to get used to. I'm sure that I will adjust eventually.

This card has been sitting on the table taunting me. I had the idea for it during July and just didn't have time to put it all together. I've been waiting and waiting today for a phone call and decided to finish it up. All the supplies are from Club Scrap Oopsie Daisy kit. The flower I cut out with my Silhouette. In fact, it was left over from my July project that I did for the hop. Thanks for looking!
