Santa Baby!

At Lasting Memories' Layout Challenges, we are currently doing a photo inspiration challenge

We are given the following image as an inspiration for a layout!

The LO's color and Holiday theme inspired me to make an LO for my lil guy! He posed for me in photographs that we were going to use for Christmas Cards! Isn't he such a cutie!

This is also perfect for this month's Anything Goes challenge at Scrap Our Stash! Make sure you head over there, too to join the challenges!!

I will also be entering this to DCWV's Decemeber Stack-A-Holic Challenge.

Inspirational Photo

This week at Lasting Memories' the challenge is to make an LO inspired by one of the 3 photos given. I chose this winter wonderland for my layout! 

Following the winter theme, I used photos from winter of 2008. I stuck the color scheme of blues, white, and grays. I put a few embellishments, but mostly used different patterned papers.

Visit Lasting Memories and show us what inspires you from one of the photos!

Hidden Secrets

This week at Lasting Memories, the challenge is to have hidden journaling. I have more hidden secrets in this layout! I used AC Cardstock and Reminisce Felt Paper.


A good friend sent Ethan these glasses and he just kept making the goofiest faces!! I wanted to scrapbook as many of the photos as I could without having to do a 2 page layout! I hid more photos, the title, and the journaling.....

Seattle in Sepia

This week at Lasting Memories, the challenge is to use Sepia photos. 

My friends from Virginia came to visit, which meant it was time for me to be a tourist along with them!! I took a few photos and turned into Sepia and printed them in wallet sizes to fit the LO perfectly! I used DCWV Mod Stack and a few solid cardstock. I kept it simple with rub-ons, buttons, and flowers.

Show us what you can do this week at Lasting Memories!!

5 embellishments: Button, Bow, Rick Rack, Flowers, and Stickers, 4 words or letters in my title: Bun in the Oven, 3 pictures, 2 pattern papers, and 1 solid paper.

Cards for Izzy

(this post will stay on top till October 21st, pls scroll down for all new posts, thank you!)

Taken from Lasting Memories' Challenge Blog

"Hi there! As most of you know, Evanna's daughter has been diagnosed with Leukemia. When Evanna emailed me last week, I just felt heartsick and wondered what could I do? So, after a lot of thought, I'm going to run "Cards For Izzy" and reach out to all our fellow blogging friends to send a card to little Izzy. All cards can be mailed to me at:

Cards For Izzy
c/o Karen Wilson
PO BOX 438
Willow Beach, ONT
L0E 1S0

Cards do NOT have to be "Get Well", in fact, they can be absolutely ANYTHING that will put a smile on a little girl's face. If you have little ones and they want to make something, PLS add that in! The more cards, the better. I'm asking for all cards to be mailed out by October 21 and I will wait a couple weeks to be sure I get everyone's and then I will pkg everything up and send out to Evanna. Thank you all so very much - now let's make this little girl, and her family, smile."

TO all my craft buddies, please take the time to make a small little card. It'll brighten up this family's day and anything would help! If you're from the US and would like to send ME your card so I could just send it all in one package, just comment me here with your e-mail and I will send you my mailing address. Please send it out by the October 11th, so I can send it out by the 21st to Karen. Let's take this time to help out a fellow craft friend.
