Wow woke up to a lovely snowy spring day in Chicago. So I decided to catch up on my swaps. This is another Cricut layout for a swap that Melanie is hosting. I did a bug layout. I loved they way this came out. I cut the jar out of white card stock and then added a layer of transparency paper over. It looks like the bugs are actually in a jar!

Here is one of 3 layouts that I am doing for a swap that Melanie is hosting. This is a Cricut layout, and I kept this one really simple. I used my Cricut for everything except the photo boxes.

Okay, so I am officially addicted to swapping. My favs are LOTW and border swaps. This swap was a Disney Border swap that mysweetsix hosted. I took 4 spots so I can finally finish my Disney trip!

Spring Cleaning/Organize

Wanted to share something I found the other day..... I am forever trying to organize my scrap/craft room and found this new photo organizer at Michaels . With a 40 % coupon it was about 20.00. There are 12 seperate little plastic holder that will store and protect over 1,000 4x6 sized photos, each individual plastic storage container holds over 100 photos. Made by iris. I just love it.

Rain,Rain Go Away!

So it rained and rained and rained some more here in Illinois this weekend. Nothing to do but scrap the weekend away. I really needed to finish up some swaps so I finished my little brother page for the big brother/little brother that Kelli is hosting. Here is my Lil Bro page. I made 4 different sets and used up alot of misc. paper that I had. Hope you like it.

Ahoy Matey!

Here is another layout for a swap on SCS that 2goofy hosted. The requirement was to use stamps to create layout. I needed a pirate theme page so this is what I came up with. It is hard to see in the photo but I used a versamark champagne pad to stamp the boat and x marks the spot. This versamark pad leaves a little shimmer on the page.

I totally cased this layout from one of my scrapbook idea books, changed a few little things. The buckle was created using my cricut and I embossed the tag with silver powder to make it look like a buckle. I also used white chalk ink and inked all of the paper to give it the washed over look. This is for a big brother/lil brother swap that Keli is hosting. I will start on the lil bro page next.

Under Construction

I love to read and get ideas from other peoples blogs. I am new to creating my own. Please be patient with me as I create this blog.
