I've done some more!

I love this one! It was from a sketch challenge that I hosted on W2W, and this is the LO that I came up with. The kit is so sweet, its Angel by Amanda Rockwell, and I wanted to use it because the colours just matched so well with her sweater! I am really happy with the way that this one turned out!

This is another really fun one I did. I love the way that all of our pictures fit into the word Family! I got the idea from a frame that my Mom had bought. The kit is, ironically named, Family, by Amanda Rockwell!

This is my most recent LO that I did for a sketch challenge on, another scrapbook forum that I belong to. I love the black and white kit, its an add-on to Intensity, by Lauren Grier, and I love this photo! It was taken on Lydia's first Birthday, and she looks so much like a little princess!

So, this is what I have been doing all weekend!

Lydia's Coming Home Outfit

I did this LO as a sketch challenge for ES. The kit is A Baby Story Girl by Amanda Rockwell, and the frame is from her Frame Collection - Girl as well. The font is called Daisy Script and it just fits so well. I love this picture of Lydia, and I did the effect with the black and white and colour because the journalling is about her outfit, so I wanted that to stand out the most to people.

The journalling reads as follows:

Mom was going through some of her things and came across a knitted set of baby clothes that my brothers and I all wore home from the hospital. They are a pair of booties, a jacket and a bonnet, all mint green, that Mom knit about 26 years ago. So, she passed them onto me to dress Lydia in when she comes home from the hospital! What a special gift from her Grandmother!

This is my newest LO. I love the way that it turned out. The kit is Sweet Pea by Lauren Grier and the frame is by Amanda Rockwell. She just looks so natural, like she is praying in that pose, that I chose Phillippians 4:6 as my journalling.

I love the springtime!

My 27th Birthday

April 12th was my 27th Birthday, and my family took me out to Pizza Delight. They have this deal where you get to eat free on your Birthday, so that's what we did. It was a lot of fun, my family was there, as well as a good friend of mine who gave me a beautiful Teacher's Mug as a Birthday gift.

This LO was actually done for a sketch challenge that I hosted on W2W. It was my first time hosting a sketch challenge, and this is a sketch that I drew myself, so I feel a little proud! The kit is called Emma, and its by Amanda Rockwell. The photo at the top was taken at the moment that I was unwrapping my present, and Lydia was there watching me and reaching for the mug! The photo at the bottom shows Lydia wearing the ribbon that my friend tied around the gift bag.

The font is called Eight Fifteen and the frame is from Frame Collection Girl by Amanda Rockwell. Both the frame and the Kit can be found at the Elemental Scraps store.
This is the sketch that I made on PSP 9 for the challenge!

Easter and Others

This is a two page Layout that I did for Easter! Easter was so much fun in our house, as it was Lydia's very first Easter Egg Hunt! I think though that I was more excited then she was. When we first showed her the little basket to put her eggs in, and then demonstrated to her how to put them in the basket, I don't she quite understood. She started to pick up other things in the living room to put into her basket as well, such as a coaster, a toy, anything! We showed her how to put her eggs in the basket and pretty soon, she was like an old pro, and since we clapped our hands every time she found an egg, she started to clap her hands too, and say "Yay! It was really cute! Because she's too young for chocolate, she got to find colourful plastic eggs instead. The kit is First Day of Spring by Amanda Rockwell, and the fonts are Easter Parade and Karen's Calligraphy!
This LO I finished today! I've been wanting to do one of Lydia's first day sitting for a long time now, and I finally found inspiration from a sketch! The kit is Amanda Rockwell's All Girl, and the font is Blackjack. This LO was used for a font challenge on W2W.
This is just a fun one that I did of Lydia, because I love her bare feet! It was a flower crop on ES, the kit is a freebie by Jennifer Layden that was given out at Joanns Wednesday night crop.
And finally this Spring LO that I did of Lydia! I love the effect of the glass globe over top of the oval picture in the corner, I think it turned out pretty good! The kit is Spring Breeze from Shabby Princess!

New Layouts!

This is my newest LO of Lydia! The kit that I used was Chocolate Petals by Amanda Rockwell and the font is called Elegant. I love this picture of Lydia, it was taken on her first Birthday. She is such a beautiful little girl!
I love this Layout as well! Here I am using Amanda Rockwell's Summer Brights! I just love the vibrant colours of the papers, and the metal elements. Plus, this is such a precious picture of Lydia running on the lawn! This LO was done for a scraplift challenge at ES. We had to scraplift a beautiful LO from Lauren Grier, and this was my interpretation. The font that I am using is called More Enchanted Prairie Dogs.
This is another Layout with the exact same kit! Lydia had so much fun playing outside with her pail and shovel, and of course I was right there to capture it all on my camera!
This was a sketch challenge on Elemental Scraps as well. I loved how the sketch allowed for so many different photos to be placed on the LO. This sketch was actually meant to be on a 12 X 12 LO, but I have been doing all of my LOs recently on 8 1/2 X 11 in order for them to fit more neatly into my baby book for Lydia. The font that I am using is Susie's Hand.
This was such a fun Layout to do! I used the Doodles Freebie Kit by Faith True that she gave out at the weekly crop! I've never used doodles before, but it was fun and I really like the way that this Layout turned out. Especially with the way I used the circle elements. The font that I am using is called Happieness, and it is really quite cute!
The final Layout is from Amanda's Spring kit. This is Lydi's very first ice cream cone! I actually did this Layout to be submitted in order to be a part of the Elemental Scraps Creative Team. I don't know how successful I'll be, but I really want to try. I am pleased with how the lettering turned out. The fonts that I am using are font diner dot com loungy and luv n kisses.
