Muir Woods

Muir Woods This is the layout I did yesterday based on another sketch on Tamaras blog.

Just a very simple layout using Septembers studio calico kit.  Given the size of the photos I didn't think it needed much more.

Tall trees  I did this layout this morning as part of the mojo boosting challenge thread on UKS.  I scraplifted a layout by weetabix which can be found Here.  My version is much simpler though!!

Again the photos are from Muir Woods and I used a mixture the last 2 studio calico kits. 

Baking Time

Baking Time  I did this layout this morning in between taking and fetching the kids from swimming.  I did it for the UKS weekly challenge.  Normally this isn't a photo I would have scrapped but I was searching for a photo that I could include 'time' in the LO somehow.  I was pleased with the way it turned out and it's nice to have a record of the memory even if there aren't any pictures of the kids.

Used this months gogo kit that arrived yesterday (with a few extra buttons).  The title was done with my cricut and the 'time' was cut using my new graphically speaking cartridge.  The letters weren't standing out enough so I painted behind them.

I did another LO this afternoon but didn't get a chance to take a photo whilst it was still light so I will post that one tomorrow.

Embarcadero  Some photos taken in San Francisco on our recent holiday.  I used last months gogo kit (except the letters),


I love this photo of Rachel and Mike taken at a family meal in Santa Monica.

Another outing for this months Studio Calico kit mixed with last months gogo letters.

Monthly Crop

Budding photographer It was our usual monthly crop today and I managed 3 LO's.

The photos were taken at Muir Woods during our recent holiday.

As with all the layouts I used this months studio calico kit which I am loving.  Becky however doesn't like it because it isn't pink enough!!

Just realised the butterflies were from last months gogo kit!

I used this weeks sketch from the Sketches {by Tamara} blog.


These photos of the penguins were again taken on our recent holiday in Seaworld San Diego - love that place.

I used a pencil lines sketch.

Is it real 

Another pencil lines sketch and another sea world photo.  We saw this fantastic picture on the wall and Katherine said 'I want that picture on my bedroom wall' so I took a photo of it.  The photo came out much better than I expected so couldn't resist putting it on a layout.

Adore My Family

Here is today's layout.

The photo was taken at Seaworld and the sign in front is our surname!!

I used this months scrapagogo kit with a few extra alpha's.  The tag says 'my family' in case you can't read it.

This one came together really easy - normally I spend ages arranging and rearranging things but this is where the kit really came into it's own.
