"Gal Pals"

This is another layout that I completed this past Saturday at the Mission Crop at our local Vineyard Church. I have always loved this photo of my two favorite girls, so I thought it was fitting that I do a layout for it.

Again, I used a layout design I found on 2Peas as a jump start for this design.

I used Bazzill cardstock for my background & matting and my patterned papers were all from My Mind's Eye. The blossoms were miscellaneous; embellishments by Heidi Swapp; sheer ribbon by Offray; and, brad by MM. Also, I loved the glittered green rub on letters used for the title by American Crafts. (I thought it blended well with all my colors.)

"At Twelve. . ."

I created this layout about my favorite girl's top "10", at age twelve. I used just a random 'fun' picture of her outside during her Spring Break, and increased the size to a 5x7.

The layout came together pretty easy. I used a layout I saw on 2Peas as a 'jump start' and then kinda made it my own. I used patterned paper from the Bo Bunny's Alissa line; scrap piece of Bazzill Leapfrog; miscellaneous blossoms and brads; Doodlebug alpha; K&Company sticker; Prima pink bead embellishments; and, a ZIG writer for the journaling.

"Bunny Boxes"

These are the fun bunny boxes that me and gal pal, Stephanie, worked on together. (Thanks so much to her for all the help on these!!) We made a variety of colors so as to work for girls or boys. These boxes are the perfect sizes to fill with small surprises for Easter.

The bunny is made up of a SU top note die and a variety of punches. After assembling it, we adhered it to the box, added a ribbon handle and, as seen posted below, added a 'bunny tail'.

"Yard Work"

The weather has been wonderful today! Alyssa and I have been outside most all day while my Dad and stepmom worked in the yard. I am so thankful that they come and work so hard to help make sure my house stays in tiptop shape. I am a little OCD when it comes to my yard. I always want it neat! (Luckily, my dad feels the same way!)

Since I bought this house last fall, this is the first opportunity we have had to add any type of edging and mulch in the front. Alyssa helped out today and was a good worker bee!
