Precious Faces (Misty & Noah age 7)

Misty, March 10, 2010

(Another) Precious Face

This layout was done for a March "repetition" Challenge set by Holly, our Design Team Coordinator over at Savvy 'n Sassy. We were to repeat a shape more than 3 times.

I chose circles and repeated them in several ways:
1) the flowers I made
2) the buttons and
3) the atoms on the patterned paper
4) the dotted ribbon!

Check out all the SNS March Challenges HERE. They are so much fun to do, and I guarantee you'll complete layouts!!

This also fits Carla's March 8th Monday Challenge over at Sisterhood of Scrap! we were asked to mix polka dots and stripes! Check out Carla's Monday Challenge HERE.

Recycling and making it USEFUL!!!!

Here is a post about something I made out of recycled items for my design team assignment in February over at Create-it Green.... well, all recycled items except for the Prima flowers!

I gave it to Noah's Resource Teacher for Valentine's Day and she LOVED it!

More layouts & cards to share!

"Shine: You got da power!"

Layout done for the Olympic crop at Sisterhood of Scrap!

OLYMPIC CHALLENGE: We were to include the word "power' in the LO's title. This is Daniel in 2006 at the "Tremont World's Fair," in tiny Tremont, NS. Kate was riding in competition that day with Oakley. She brought home a few ribbons!

Bright Macaw
Photo Credit: Patricia Gervais, my very sweet sister-in-law.
Location: Magnetic Hill Zoo, Moncton, NB.
This was a photo Trish sent me from 2006 or 2007. Isn't this Macaw beautiful!?
I love this photo, Trish!

This layout was created as a sample for the March Challenge I set at Savvy 'n Sassy where I am now part of the Design Team. My challenge can be found right here: Come see! Why not join in? All welcome! There are many March challenges to choose from- the whole Design AND Admin Team has joined in! Fun stuff. Lots of eye candy too.

I also did some more layouts & cards for friends and family members.
This layout was of my Aunt Carolyn (Dad's sister) and Uncle Richard, who live in the US. These are their grand-chilluns all ready for Christmas! They are so sweet! (These are my cousin Susan and her husband Chris' children.)

Christmas Smiles

The gigantic "C" and "S" in "Christmas Smiles" are Clay Artz monograms and the reindeer in the photo's upper right is a Clay Artz piece... from Creatively-Green , where I am working as a Design Team Member. I just love the way these look. So much fun! Perfect for this LO.
The flower is also from Creatively Green, as is the red Piggy Tales patterned paper! Be sure to check out all the GREEN crafting supplies available at the Creatively-Green Store...

Here's a fun Valentine card I made for one of the kids' teachers last month. Forgot to show it to you!

It is embellished with one of my "scruffy posies." Aren't they CUTE? They're made from old jeans!
Used bubble wrap dipped in white acrylic paint to create the pattern on the red paper.

The following 2 cards were done with a sketch by Ann Seleshanko at Savvy n Sassy in January. Patterned papers are from October Afternoon.

I sent this one to my friend Helen, in NB.

I sent this one to my Mom.

This layout is one of my own designs, of our "Anniversary Jaunt," thru the Annapolis Valley in August 2006 to take photos in celebration of our 15th year together. This old building has always intrigued me...

"Highway One"

100% Creatively-Green recycled cardstock in Imperial Blue, fancy felt flower, vintage-style skeleton keys, & patterned paper by "Piggy Tales"- all from Creatively-Green.

Thanks for stopping in to visit with me! Love to hear what you think!
