Zoo - Karen Foster

 Another cute layout by my daughter Kamryn.
Now I need to go to the Zoo to see the baby Elephant Lily.

Carta Bella - Giddy Up by Samantha Walker

 My 17 year old daughter scrapbooked this adorable layout.
I think she has the creative touch just like her mama. : )

ADORNit- Bumble Collection

     This one Just showed up at my local store just a few days ago ...
 I passed on it and then found myself back the very next day to purchase it.
 I think it turned out super cute!!

Doodlebug - Stars and Stripes

   I don't know why I don't scrapbook more 4th of July pages I love
     the colors and they are so fun to do. Hope you like it! :)


Echo Park - A Perfect Summer

      Just loved the colors of this paper line, when I got home it evolved away from my original idea... but I love, love, love the pages and how they turned out. I used my Cricut machine and cartridges, Pack your Bags and Life's a Beach.  

My Little Yellow Bicycle - Just Because

                                          Love these colors ... they remind me of my daughter,
                                            when she was little she had the cutest Osh Kosh
       cloths. I know I have a outfit just perfect for these!

 I discovered a super awesome creative photographer here in the Portland Oregon area. Her name is Kati Bodle and she is am! She did out family photo's and Kamryn's senior pictures ... I don't know how I will ever choose a favorite. It anyone needs pictures you should check her out. Not only is she creative but inexpensive, fast and down right awesome!

Here is a few of my favorites from our photo sessions ....



Jars for scrapbooking storage?

I have used a few jars before in my craft room...
and I like them. I like being able to see things as much as possible.
I think when things are tucked away in containers so I can't see them I forget about them,
or they are to much work to get out or even just find.
So many things I have don't get used for this very reason.
Having things out so I can see them and easily grab them makes my pages
way more creative and layered with texture. I don't know about you but sometimes
I get in a rut and need a clip or hinge to add a little inspiration.
Check out some ways to use Jars in your craft room......
