A Steampunk Sunday..

Today I scrapped an older picture of me and Rylie, one of her as a chubby little baby! She was so sweet back in those "Sweet Baby Days"...!

I used things in my stash, mostly older items that I have had, in some cases, for two years or more! The Steampunk paper in the background is Hot Off The Press. I actually FORGOT I had this until just this very morning! The chipboard lamp piece in the upper corner is Dusty Attic, and the chipboard dress form is from a company sadly no longer around. I used grungeboard wings and crown too. I really love how this page turned out, and I have sweet memories of those baby days!

Spring is here at last!

Spring has definitely sprung here in Ohio! My tulips are putting on quite a show and I've been taking a bunch of photos. I really love this one of my Rylie:

I had to scrap this one right away, can you blame me? (hee hee hee!) As I started to print my photos though, my printer decided it was going to begin running out of ink in the color cartridge. I decided to use the photos anyway, though they are a little bit muted. For my layout, I  used lots of Moxxie goodness. There is a 12 x 12 circle die cut, I love these so much and Moxxie makes them in so many color combos! I also used papers from the Wee Ones collection.

Welcome Spring Tag with Globecraft & Piccolo accents!

Spring has definitely sprung in my neck of the woods! My tulips are popping up everywhere, the sun is shining, and the birds are singing! The first few weeks of warm weather always seem a bit magical to me. It's not too hot yet, and everything is "greening up."

I made a tag to to welcome this lovely time of year using Moxxie's Easter paper and stickers.   For sweet and simple embellishing, I used some of my favorite Globecraft & Piccolo products. I used:

G&P Butterfly Flurry Flourishes
G&P 3D Enamel Gel Turquoise
G&P Pure Silver Sparkle Glitter

The butterflies are so sparkly and just make me smile. That makes this tag perfect for this time of year!
