Maggie's Scrapbooking!

Maggie has been scrapbooking for a while and she just did her first 12x12 pages. On this page she took the picture last summer with her own camera. Then she got to scrap it for the Billions of Buttons Challenge over at The Moments. She came up with the idea of using cars since Bobby likes playing with cars. Then she added the buttons for the lights, and the wheels! I think she did a wonderful job and wanted to share her creative work with all of you. She even cut the letters out with the CuttleKids die cutting machine! Thanks so much for looking!

Here They are!

These are layouts I have done for the the Super Sketches class by Allison Davis at My Creative Classroom. She is so talented and designs the best sketches -especially for two page layouts. These are the two layouts I did for week one-

This is Bobby last March playing outdoors with anything that had wheels!

This second one has photos of geese at Kendall Lake last fall. These were from the same sketch with different approaches to the sketch.

Thanks for looking!

Butterfly Love

is the name I gave this layout! I was doing a layout for a class on scrapping and stamping and you were to make a stamped border. I did that but then reread the challenge and I was supposed to use wood stamps and these were Clings. Anyway I got to looking at it and there were three errors on this page. So I posted it on the member challenge for them to find the errors! Just having some fun! Can you find them?

Here are some layouts I did today

for some of the challenges at the Moments.
This first one was to make a tag in a shape out of cardboard and then decorate it. I thought this was appropriate for the upcoming holiday.

The next one you were to cut a shape and fill it with buttons.

The next one was scraplift of a layout done by my Friend Pat.

Maggie's Birthday Dinner

was held at Rockne's this year. Maggie is so proud that she can read now. Quite an accomplishment as she has been reading for not quite a year and she just turned seven. She does very well with reading-a lot better then I did for first grade. She was so excited to be able to read her own birthday cards. Thanks for looking!
