Cookin' Up Creations Design Team Work Share

Over on Cookin' Up Creations the DT had to scraplift a member of CUC group. We voted and chose Jeanie Moler.  She created a lovely layout (see below).

Here is the layout I created. I did a lot of layering.

Jeanie's Layout

Some Close-ups of the title and layers. 
(yes, you are seeing correct. 
That is vellum, mulberry and handmade textured papers in the layers)

 I traced Amy Tan's flower and colored it to match my layout.

Thanks for looking. If you decide to scraplift Jeanie or even me be sure to leave me a link to your creation.

Layout Share

Over on Cookin' up Creations we're doing the Great Outdoors theme this month. Barb issued a challenge called Sand and Water. For this challenge she wanted you to create a project inspired by sand and water.

This is what I came up with. I did a lot of layers and clusters. In the picture is my eldest daughter when she was 2 years old. DH made her a Sand Mermaid and she was in heaven. She loves mermaids.

Design Team Work Share

I had a wonderful weekend with our kids and their friends. We celebrated our son's birthday early. It was a movie themed party. The girls and I decorated with streamers, movie posters, and movie themed die cuts. We gave out popcorn bags filled with movie candy and popcorn. Then the kids went to the movies to watch ParaNorman. They love it! When they returned we did the cake and other festivies. I'll post pictures in a bit.

Now, for the Design Team Work for Let's Scrap. I created this layout of my children meeting their baby cousin for the first time.

I kept it simple - I did exchange the doily for a heart and create a polariod style picture instead of a round one. As shown in the sketch.
All the papers I used  except for the cardstock base were from the Scraptastic July's Nostalgic Summer Kit.

Over on Cookin' Up Creations we're doing the Great Outdoors. On Friday 9/7/12 I  challenged the group to create a project focusing on Backyard Fun .

We all have fun in yards, whether it's right in our own backyard or in our neighborhoods.I created this layout about my family playing football in the backyard. Now, that game was a lot of fun. We create some great Rules which you can see on this layout.

Close up of the title, embellishments & Rules!

 I created this football out of cork, white cardstock and DMC floss.

All the papers, alpha(mini) & brad used in this layout was from the Scraptastic Club Kit (July - Nostalgic Summer).

Leave me a comment and if you decide to create a project featuring your back yard be sure to link me.
