My first layout is the annual picture of my daughter and her Cape Cod friends...
I created the layered scallop flowers by stacking and distressing 5 layers and attaching them with a brad. For March, we had a challenge to re-use or re-purpose something on our layout so I used a cardboard coffee sleeve to create my title letters.
My second layout showcases pictures of my kitty Rosie on her first outdoor adventure. (She's an indoor kitty) My husband bought a harness because he thought she'd like the outside... The results were mixed, but she did like the flowers! (or maybe it was the chipmunk hole under the bush....)
I created the flowers and butterflies using MFT's Die-namics and the tags and title were made from the recycled coffee sleeves.

I took this picture of my mother and daughter last year on my daughter's birthday... I love how it came out!! The layout is based on Sketch 144 from Creative Scrappers. I had lots of fun with the embellishments on this one... the zipper flowers are made from Maya Road Zipper trims. I colored the blue and red ones using some Shimmerz Spritz and Luminarte.
Finally, the best part, my good friend Lynn Kopas who designs for Petaloo, found this adorable dragon fly in her stash. It matched my mom's shirt perfectly!! I colored him with some Shimmerz Spritz and hand stitched a little swirl to complete him!!
I'll be back soon with some more (of the very few...) layouts that I completed at the crop. Stop by Let's Capture Our Memories soon to check out all of the new goodies that are coming in daily!

This month we got to work with Basic Grey's Marjolaine line. I LOVE this line.. blues, greens, browns, it's right up my alley! Here's what I came up with:
This is a picture my mother, husband, daughter and me on the front steps of the Chatham Bars Inn. We go there each summer to celebrate my parents' anniversary. I based the layout on Creative Scrappers's sketch 146.
I had lot of fun with the flower embellishments and I couldn't resist adding some cute butterflies made from MFT's Die-namics butterflies.

The Twig line comes with all sorts of great embellies! I fell in love with the canvas banner and the button flowers! The butterflies were created using MFT's Butterfly Die-namic and the mini clothespins are from Canvas Corp... they were just so cute I had to have them!
