Four beautiful little ladies


I'd been admiring this layout in the current CTMH idea book ever since the book came out and finally had a chance to reproduce it. I LOVE this layout, especially the little ladies in the photo. The original photo was in color and had too much blue in it so I converted it to B&W to use for this layout. I am so happy with the way it turned out. I don't usually create layouts with only one photo on them as I take many photos of everything, and my family and friends can attest to that, but I just had to do this design. The colors used were creme brulee, black, tulip, NE ivy and goldrush from CTMH. Hope you all enjoy it!

Christmas Flip Album













Here's a great little handmade album that was soooo much fun to create! I actually have since added many embellishments to it but haven't taken any new photos of it.
You get the idea anyway. This was so easy to make and I have to thank a SU demonstrator (thanks Amy Celona) for the inspiration and directions. This album uses the Evensong paper pack from CTMH along with many different stamp sets. What great gifts these will make! Enjoy!

Fall Photos

Just thought I'd share a couple of my favorite fall photos with you. The first one is of our fall display that my husband created in my absence while I was in NY back at the end of September. Didn't he do a great job? Very proud of him and what a nice surprise to come home to! The second photo is a closeup of the orange mums. I totally love closeup shots of flowers! I am currently using this photo for the background on my computer! Just gorgeous! Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Layouts














I know it's a bit early for Thanksgiving but since I seem to be so behind all the time I wanted to show that once in awhile I can be ahead of the game. I wasn't sure how these would turn out as the colors used are not your typical Thanksgiving colors but lo and behold, they turned out gorgeous! My monthly scrapbook club ladies got a sneak peek at these during our last class and they are excited for the next class as these are the layouts they will be creating. I am really enjoying the monthly word puzzle stamp sets that Close to my Heart comes out with. I used the November one, obviously, on this one along with Barn Red and Juniper cardstocks and inks plus patterned paper from the Perfect Day paper pack. I also used the Chocolate alphabet stamp set for 'family' on the title. Hope I inspired you to get going on your Thanksgiving layouts as it is fast-approaching whether we like it or not! Have a great day!

Waitin' for the Ferry

These layouts are from our visit to the Adventure Aquarium in Camden, NJ back in July. My son and all his girls came to stay for a week from Indiana and we took them to the aquarium. These particular photos are from when we were waiting for the ferry to pick us up to return to Penn's Landing and our vehicles for the ride home after a fun day!

Discovering the Joy of Sharing

This is my version of the Notebook Workshops on the Go program by Close to my Heart. I made some minor adjustments since I didn't have the same size photos as was recommended. I'm quite pleased with these layouts. The little girlies in the photos are my granddaughters, Kira, Jaden and Samantha. They are just the cutest! Enjoy!

HELLO!!!

Sorry it's been so long since I've posted! Here are some of my latest layouts and projects I've been busy working on.
I know Halloween is past but wanted to post these anyway as it might inspire someone to get their Halloween layouts done. I will most likely give these layouts to a family member or friend as I don't have any young children in my house anymore to use these for. I know, I know, I could use them for when my children were younger, you say, but I just don't have the time to go back that far in history right now. I have a hard time keeping up with the here and now!
Anyway, hope you all enjoy my newest artwork. Have a great day!
Carol
