Cocoa Daisy January Kit Layout

This is another Shimelle inspired layout.  I used this starting point as inspiration for this layout.  I also used the January kit, (Tea & Cupcakes) from Cocoa Daisy.  This is my first time joining a kit club. I have to say, I wished I would have joined a long time ago!  I love this kit!  I was thrilled that I received my first package just a few days after I joined.  The customer service has been wonderful and the price is great!  So, if you have contemplated joining a kit club, I would highly recommend Cocoa Daisy.

Our Little Blessing- Layout

There is nothing in the world like being a Grandma!  This little angel brings so much joy to my life!  It is indescribable how much I love her! :)  This photo was taken the day after Emery was born.  I love how it captures such a sweet moment.

This is my fur-baby, Sugar.  She is sweet &  a little bit feisty!  I love this picture of her playing with my shoes. Of course, I had to scrap it. :)  I used a sketch #192 (pictured below)  from Creative Scrappers.  I tweaked it a little to make it work with my photo.  I also added the title to the top, instead of the bottom.  I am really not into "cutesy" but I love this Max & Whiskers collection from Basic Grey.  It is cute, but not too cute.  Plus, I love the colors!

A Cherry On Top Sketch Challenge & 1 More

Sketch Challenge by happayscrappay (Rachel)
I created this layout for the January Sketch challenge at A Cherry On Top.  I really love how this layout
turned out.  It was my 41st Birthday (Ekkkk) earlier this month.  My sweetie-pie had this beautiful balloon bouquet and scented Teddy Bear to my classroom.  He always knows how to make me feel loved and special.  I am so blessed! :)

This layout was inspired by my favorite scrapbooker, Shimelle.  I loved the little garland she used in this layout.  I broke out my Cricut (George & Basic Shapes Cartridge) and whipped up this simple little garland. The craft tag came from Michaels (the dollar bin).  There were 8 tags with coordinating ribbon, for a dollar! I love a good deal! :)
That's all for today! Have a relaxing Sunday! :)

Lots of Layouts!

This is a layout I created using Shimelle's starting point.  This was a fun challenge! I adore this picture of my daughter, Ericka kissing my grand-baby, Emery on the cheek.  I used papers from Prima's Second Wind collection.

I found these pictures on my camera when I was uploading Christmas pictures.  What a fun surprise!  I love the silly faces and happy smiles.  December 25, 2011  I used Basic Grey & Lily Bee papers, and Making Memories alphabet.

This is one of my favorite pictures taken at Christmas.  One of my student's mom hand-crocheted this girly santa hat for Emery.  She looks precious!  I used some old papers from my Nature's Poetry collection back when Dream Street Papers was still around.  

This layout is of my Pepaw and Emery.  Pepaw is Emery's great, great, grandfather.  It is rare that children get to know their great, great, grandparents!  I feel so blessed to still have him in my life and how cool for Emery to have the opportunity to spend time with him! I used Basic Grey's Sweet Threads collection.

Me and Emery on Christmas.  I used Basic Grey's Sweet Threads collection.

Tristan's 13th Birthday Party.  I think this is Crate Paper.  I can't remember for sure.  I have had it awhile.

These pictures are from this past July.  It was Keith's 51st Birthday/July 4th Barbeque/Pool Party Celebration. I love these pictures of Keith with his nieces, Alyssa and Madison.

Last but not least is a Christmas layout of Emery.  I used Fancy Pants papers/overlay.

The Great Outdoors
