Nicolas Trike

Don't faint! I know I haven't posted in awhile and to do it twice in one week... amazing! lol I have had time this past week to be creative. I'll show you a project in a few days of something that I've been working on. But today I have another digital layout. This one is of my oldest grand daughter. I got to visit her and her family last week which was a lot of fun. We got Nicola a tricycle for her birthday. She hadn't quite figured out in September how to get it to go on the gravel. But this time she was going like crazy up and down the driveway. Whenever her mommy is outside taking care of the animals Nicola is riding her trike.


For this layout I used a template by fiddle-dee-dee designs from her Center of Attention 3 set. The kit is from this months Daily Digi: Celebrate the Little Things by Cluster Queen Creations. To grunge up the edge of the background paper I used an edging overlay by KimB.

Club Scrap Homestead Blog Hop

Welcome to Club Scrap's Homestead blog hop! If this is your first stop, you might want to go back to the beginning and get the list of all the participants. You won't want to miss any of the wonderful projects.

I was thankful that I was able to participate this month. It got me into scrapping again. I love Autumn/harvest type kits. I have oodles of these on my hard drive and so when this kit came out it was instant love. I was particularly grateful that my daughter-in-law posted Pumpkin Patch pictures in time for me to use them. I didn't even tell her what kind of pictures I needed this month!

This first layout I used a photo mask from the Bookshelves kit. Masks help make layouts easy. I used an overlay with a paper clipped to it and changed the blend mode for the background paper. I love how it turned out. The 'watch' tag on the ribbon came from Time Of Your Life kit. I added paper with the photo info and a 'bubble' to it.

This next layout was also easy. The top paper has 2 overlays with different blending modes used. The ribbon element was premade. So easy to drop in there. The tab under the picture mat was a divider from the Bookshelves kit that I clipped a Homestead paper to. I then added the photo info to it. This little guy is always happy so I had to add the smiles tag.

For this third layout I used a template. Everything is from Homestead except the hedgehog is from Random Doorways, the dark brown ribbon flowers are from Cinema, the lighter brown ribbon flower is from Trees, and the brown grosgrain ribbon is from Gratitude.

Thank you for looking. Your next stop on the way is Debby!

Autumn Pumpkin

I can hardly wait for the leaves to start changing. We have had a long glorious warm/hot summer. Our garden went crazy and I've been busy canning and dehydrating. But, I'm ready for fall and cooler weather. I'm even ready for the seemingly never ending rain. So I'm kind of stuck on Autumn pictures from previous years right now. Everything in this layout is from Weeds and Wildflower's Kickin' Up the Leaves kit (retired) except the border is from WW Life 365: Doodly Painted Borders.
