Lady in waiting - layout

Just a fun and simple layout for you guys today. This one is an older one that I haven't got the chance to post. I've been really trying to go through my stash and scrap with what I have. And I ended up buying almost the whole Dear Lizzy Neapolitan Collection when I really wasn't planning on it. So here I am a girl who doesn't like pink is scrapbooking with pink. Don't get my wrong I love the collection its super cute! I'm just having a hard time scrapbooking with it when its me, my hubby and a son. Just trying to make the most of it! Enjoy the layout!

Its a Boy -layout

I made this layout a while back, but never got the chance to post it. I used Crate Paper Little Boy Blue collection. When it came out, last year, I loved it and knew it would be prefect for my new born son's photos. The only thing I'm not happy with on this layout is the background (I think). I feel like something missing on the page. I think once I have a craftroom again I'll take a look at it again and change it. but for now Enjoy!

Jan. Block Party PT2

This first layout I scraplifted from HERE. I was really inspired by the use of the vellum and the journaling pocket she had. So I made it my own and used the pocket that came in the kit to type out all my journaling, and if some one is really interested my finding out what this page is about they can put it out from the top. The journaling talks about some memories I have of our street back in Russia.
The second layout is really simple, and I plan to do some journaling under the title once I get some more info on the photos. They are really old and I don't really remember all the details. Hope you enjoyed! leave a comment thanks!

Jan. Block Party Kit PT1

I'm so proud of my self I only scraplifted ONE layout using January Block Party Kit by Studio Calico. At least so far. I've made 6 pages but 2 are part of a 2 page layout. And I've still got more paper and supplies left to make a few more pages. Hopefully I'll think of something with the rest.
OK, for the first layout I was really inspired by THIS Sunday sketch on the Studio Calico Blog. I really liked the idea of having arrows and twines leading the eyes to the photos. And the circles added a fun touch. The only thing that was not in the kit was the grey and white twine and dollies behind the photos.
The second layout was also a Sunday sketch on the Studio Calico Blog that I can't seem to find. It came together quiet quickly and I really wanted to try outlining my paper the way Mercy Tiara does on hers. I'm always inspired by her videos on Youtube! I thought I'd outline the title too so it could stand out a bit more. And the only paper thats not from the kit is the background, I belive its by My Minds Eye and I printed my journaling on my own vellum paper. I would love to hear what you think! Thanks!

Christmas Cards pt4

OK these are the last Christmas cards I have for you guys!... No wait I take that back. Remember I said that I didn't get a chance to use up all my paper that I bought and that I may work on it later in the year. Well that means that I may have more coming later in the year *wink*. But for now, I'm done! Enjoy!
