Let Him Sleep

Happy Friday Everyone! I would like to share with you today my latest scrapbook page of my son. I am loving the fact that I can combine my three favorite hobbies in one place. 

Die Cutting - the title
Scrapbooking - the layout
Photography - the photo

The photo was actually taken "by accident". My son was resting on a chair in the lobby of French Lick Hotel in French Lick, IN. He is not actually sleeping but I came across this title a few weeks ago and just KNEW I wanted to use it on a LO. Looking back on my other LO's, you know that I rarely make or use long titles on my pages.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Paper are from BoBunny Etc. line

SOUS: Something you wear


Hello there! Here we are again with this week's DC reveal featuring "something you wear" over at SOUS.

For my project I chose a cowboy hat (to go with the photo) from the Silhouette Studio store. The title is from the store also.

This project I also used the last of my EP "This & That" paper. I really loved that line and may have to go and get me more if I can find it.

I followed this sketch for this layout.

The photo is my son playing in his cowboy hat one beautiful evening last May. Hint: I was practicing my photography at this time too.

Be sure and stop by the SOUS blog for more inspiration by our talented group of ladies!!

"May you always have a reason to have
such a wonderful smile."

Hello there! Welcome to this week's challenge at SOUS. This week we are to use a die cut of a snowman on any project we desire.

I stumbled across Scrapping Bug Designs and fell in LOVE with the style of die cuts she makes. I made the snowman and bear a couple weeks before I knew what project I was doing!!

Then I had to go shopping for the perfect paper to go with the photo! Poor me, right? I ended up using a mixture of Bo Bunny's Woodland Winter of this year and last year's Powder Mountain line.

I followed this sketch by Sketchy Thursdays.

Thanks for stopping by today!

This was Joscelin's first snow in January 2008. What this
photo means to me is hard to describe. It is one of my favorites.

My sister, my friend

Tomorrow is my sister's birthday. Happy Birthday Sis!!

Today I would like to share with you a rare layout featuring an even rarer photo of my sister and I. Usually the two of us are behind the camera, not in front of it. And not without our families somewhere in it etc etc.

I got to reach for my small stash of girly stuff and handmade flowers. Exciting times! 

I used EP: Reflections for this lay out. I just love how this turned out! Too bad the weather is getting bad and the light for taking the picture was less than stellar.

I followed this sketch by rosjen.
