Kaia is enthusiastic about everything. Here she is at the pumpkin patch. It was a play date with 2 other girls who are all the same age. I'm not sure how close their birthdays are, but I know that they had a joint 1st birthday party. She looks as though she's pretty happy to see her friends.

I used a template from Studio Rosey Posey's Art Scapes - More Story set. The kit is a collab  from Sweet Shoppe called See Jane Smile. It was originally part of a Daily Digi set... not sure which month but from at least 4 years ago.

Dungarees Inspired Bandana card

Club Scrap posted another (inter)National Scrapbooking challenge at their blog Club Scrap Creates. You were to choose a project from their blog that inspires you to make your own art.

I used for my inspiration this project. I loved all the little squares. So since I was playing with this months digi kit for the blog hop, I got to thinking about how growing up I always wore bandanas with my jeans. So I took a piece of paper, stamped the WOW Spring 2013 flower um stamp and a small paisley stamp or two from the Paisley kit (retired) on the paper and embossed with white embossing powder. I then cut the the paper into 1 inch squares and placed them on the paper. I then outlined the squares with a white Galaxy marker. The tags were die cut and stamped with Howdy from the Equestrian Greeting set. I was pretty pleased that it ended up looking like a bandana or a quilt made of pieces of a bandana.

All papers used are from Club Scrap. The card base is from Gratitude... not sure about the rest since they're half pops. It made me happy to be able to play with paper again. tfl!

Club Scrap Dungarees Blog Hop

Welcome to Club Scrap's Dungarees Blog hop. So glad you came! If this is your first stop, I hope that you'll go back to the beginning so that you don't miss any of the wonderful projects.

I have a couple of digital layouts to show you today. I always like to show what you can do with the kit using a template. This first layout uses a template by Scrapping with Liz. She has a set called Paper Piecing that I thought was perfect for the Dungarees kit. I have always wished I had time for quilting, but I have so many interests and only a little bit of time so that is something that I don't do... except digitally this month.

I had a lot of fun with this next layout turning the layout card that comes with the monthly paper kit into a digital layout. Super fun! The stitching came out of my stash and not from the Dungarees kit but everything else is from the Dungarees digital kit.

Thanks for coming and looking! Your next stop is Debby!

Sisterly Love

These pictures bring back lots of memories of my younger siblings and of my older kids with their younger siblings. Aren't big sisters supposed to torment their younger siblings? This layout is of my 2 younger grandchildren.

I used bits and pieces of May's Pickle Barrel selections from Pickleberry Pop and a template by Jumpstart Designs from her newest set, # 85. The kits that I used was Tinci Design's An Adventurous Journey, Jumpstart Design's My Heart Belongs to Mommy, the Bonus kit and Sweet Pearfection kit by Tami Miller Designs.

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for Club Scrap's Dungaree's Blog hop.

Love You

I am so grateful for pictures of my grandchildren to scrap. My own children run from the camera &/or are never home. Of course my own children are old enough to never be around and so I end up only having family events pictures.

Today's layout uses pictures of my youngest grand daughter. I used a kit by Jen C designs kit I Love You So. It can be found in the Scrap Stacks May scrappack for a few days longer. I also used a template from Fiddle-dee-dee Design's Drip Drop 4 set. tfl!

I Love You More

I love this picture of my middle daughter holding her nephew for the first time. So precious. To do this layout I used the More Than All the Stars kit by Two More Days from the Daily Digi and a template by Fiddle-dee-dee from her Drip Drop 2 set.

3 Months

I had more pictures of my grandson at 3 months of age. To scrap them I used Flergs kit from this months Daily Digi called Dream A Little Dream. I loved how the colors of the kit matched Soren's outfit. I also used a template from Fiddle-dee-dee's set A Little Punchy. tfl!

Sweet Azaleas

I don't know if you have run across native azaleas, but I have one in my garden. It is the most heavenly smelling flower (except for lilacs) that I have come across. I look forward to it's blooming every year.

I used bits and pieces of the kits that I got in March that were part of Pickleberry Pop's Pickle Barrel sale. tfl!

Morning Walk

I took these pictures almost 2 years ago. I love having pictures of flowers to scrap. Soon I'll be spending less time on my computer and more time in the garden. I not only have flowers to take care of soon but I'll also have a large vegetable garden to stay on top of. I love gardening.

This layout uses bits and pieces of different kits from Pickleberry Pop's Pickle Barrel special.  I think this special ends today. I used a template & pieces by Tinci, pieces from JumpStart Designs, pieces from the Add-on kit, bits from the kit by Tami Miller Designs and bits from Prelestnaya's kit tfl!

Easter page 2

I just had to scrap some more pictures of this years Easter gathering. The little girls were so cute in their matching dresses. For this layout I used a mixture of  kits by Studio Natali and a free template by Fiddle-dee-dee. I found as I was digging through my digital kits that I don't have any kits that is predominately lavender. Lots of pink kits. Lots of redish purple kits but not lavender. So I made do with what I found.

Best Buds

I love the expression on Soren's face. And I love that his hair stands straight up just like his daddy's did when he was a baby. I used the Alchemy kit by Queen Wild Scraps found in this months Daily Digi. I wasn't sure I would be able to use this kit but when I ran into these pictures of my grands I knew I had a match. I used a template from Southern Serenity's Sun-drenched set. tfl!

Beach Sunset

I have done several layouts so far of the pictures I took of this incredible sunset at Beverly Beach. We try to go camping here every couple of years. We love this beach for several reasons. The first is that you don't have to leave the campground to get to the beach. Another is the campground is half way between Newport and Depot Bay, so there is lots of things to do other than the beach if you want. In all the years (most of my life) that I have gone to the Oregon coast I don't think I have seen such a spectacular sunset as this one.

I used a Blended Memories Album 1 template from Studio Rosey Posey and The Deep kit by Studio Dawn Inskip. tfl!

Paper Daffodils

I made these daffodils for the Ladies Tea at our church for a display. They turned out quite life like. Not sure what I'm going to do with them when spring is over. Hate the thought of storing them since I'm sure they will get crunched. But until I decide I'll enjoy them since the daffodils in the garden have been done for almost a month and these won't ever wilt. tfl!

July 4th

Our little town has a 4th of July parade that is lots of fun. The whole community turns out for it; either to watch or to participate. And you're never quite sure what will be in it each year.

This layout uses a kit & template by Studio Rosey Posey. The kit is Sunshine of Your Love. The template is from Artscapes - More to the Story Edition.

Passport To Fun

Club Scrap posted a challenge on their blog on National Scrapbook Day to make a Passport to Fun project. I didn't have the kit, but using the envelope punch board I made my own envelopes to make this project. I used Club Scrap's Sorrento kit. The brads and ribbon are from my stash. It holds 30 pictures, but I haven't decided yet what pictures will go into it so at this time it is empty. The first picture shows the front, the next picture shows one side of it. The other side has the envelope openings that you can slide in journaling or more photos. Each side has a booklet like what you see here in the cream colored papers.

Bike Trip

I need to finish up my son's bike trip album. He and his dad rode their bikes from our home over the passes to Chelan. I was proud of them and their journey. This layout uses Sweet Shoppe Designs Outdoor Adventures kit found in this months Scrap Stacks pack.

Watermelon Girl

Hard to believe this little girl is going to be 3 in less than a month. Seems as though it were just yesterday I was holding her right after she was born. There is nothing Nicola loves more to eat than fruit. And watermelon is one of her favorite fruits... right up there with strawberries. For this layout I used the Taste of Watermelon kit by Tinci Designs. I also used a template by Tinci Designs from the Taste of Watermelon set. tfl!
