Auntie Pool *The ScrapRoom*

Now I want you to know that allowing strangers (and friends) to get a gander of these thighs was a difficult decision...but I sucked it up for the sake of my niece and memories that needed to be captured :) An impromptu trip to Tennessee wasn't in my plans for that summer but my sister was very sick and in the critical care unit of the hospital. I spent some very  precious time with my niece Grace in her kiddie pool.

The chipboard icons come in the kit and the birdie was perfect to cover a dark area on my photo.
You can also purchase the entire package of coordinating chip icons in The ScrapRoom Store!

The scalloped border punch is from Martha Stewart and reminded me of waves.

  Doodlebug brads, button from the kit, Micheals dollar spot felt flowers and AC Thickers of course :)

My trusty Cricut and the Straight From the Nest cartridge for the tree. The little bird needed a place for her nest.

October Afternoon journaling spots from the February Embellishment kit.

Journaling cards are also included in the February Flavor of the Month Kit!

Stop on by The ScrapRoom and check out some amazing deals, there are many items in the store and a great clearance section in addition to the kits :)

Don't forget to enter my giveaway by commenting on the previous post by February 14th!

My Sweetheart *The ScrapRoom* and a Giveaway (Out for Publication)

She truly is my sweetheart. You'll never meet a kinder, more compassionate, smart, artistic, wittier girl. We won't discuss her less desirable qualities, like being a procrastinator or that her room looks like a hoarders dream :) Her brother on the other hand, is my sweet tart. Sweet, funny, smart and kind, yet stubborn, opinionated and argumentative. If he were inclined to let me take portraits of him, he would have a Valentines layout too!

This is another amazing kit from The ScrapRoom! Love the variety of papers and embellishments in each kit and the add on embellishment pack makes it even sweeter :)

 It's so much fun now that she is cooperating with my "photo shoots"

 I can't get enough of those beautiful green eyes or that cute little mole ;) 

 So photogenic, love all her expressions.

 This vellum quote was perfect for this layout but got lost on the light background. A fussy cut heart remedied  that! The craft paper heart stickers are from American Crafts.

Crate Paper patterned paper. The buttons are Studio G, I think I found them at Walmart.

 American Crafts craft paper die cut frame, just slid the top portion behind the photo.

Title from the Jasmine Cricut cartridge. Cut multiple times and layered to create a chipboard feel.  

This layout was created using a Creating Keepsakes sketch found under the submissions tab on their website. Had good intentions to submit but ran out of time :) Now that I look at this layout from a distance I feel like it would be improved by changing the 2 smaller photos to one larger photo. What do you think?

Now for the giveaway! How would you like to win an individual layout kit from The ScrapRoom? Just visit The ScrapRoom website and tell me which individual layout kit you like best and I will choose a randomly selected winner on February 14th! Be sure to leave a way for me to track you down in your comment :)
