A Rebel???

I have been going through a lot of changes lately just trying to be myself! Ive cut some negative energy that was totally draining me out of my life and I have never felt more relieved or better about myself!!!

Its so hard to do a layout about myself but this layout was so therapeutic and a really great way to document these changes!

Hidden Journaling Says: I have been through so many changes these last few years! One being, I have learned to be me!!! Im at the age now where I can be who I want without worrying what others think even if it means going a little outside the box and being a bit of a REBEL!

Thank you so much for looking!!!

BOY: a noise with dirt on it!

My daughter has been getting tutoring lessons from her preschool teacher all summer long to prepare her for kindergarten and she is so wonderful letting me work off some of what I owe her for fees with scrapbooking (she is seriously my savior) these photos are of her adoptive son COVERED in mud and I LOVE THEM!

Flower Box

When I saved this chocolate box my family thought I was nuts! I knew I would find a good use for it though. These are dried roses from the same dozen my girls used as flower girls at my wedding in June. There will be a matching layout to follow im just kind of slow on inspiration at the moment :(

This is my son Kaine, coming from a western country background my mother insisted on the nickname BUBBA but....its not my favorite nickname in the world for "my" son. My dad's nickname is BUBBA and it suits him but just not Kaine so I vowed no matter what influence I received I would NOT call him Bubba lol but.....My favorite nicknames for him come close lol


My oldest Daughter Destiny Sky at age two in 2005 blowing bubbles!

This photo was taken before I was into photography so the picture quality is low but I just love it anyways!

These bubbles are super easy to make! I used some left over transparency cut them out roughed up the edges and painted them with a pearl glaze focusing around the edges a bit to get that bubble look!

Daddy's Girl

Well after 7 years and 3 kids me and my long time fiance have finally taken the leap and gotten married. Our special day was on June 20th and this was one of my favorite photos of me and my Dad when he was walking me down the isle!

Journaling Reads:

Daddy’s Girl
At first glance you would probably never guess that he is not my biological father but in my heart he is MY dad! He was there for my first report card, my first boyfriend, and even my first mistakes. Even though we lost touch for a few years no one can take his spot in my life and that is why HE walked me down the isle on my special day.
I Love You Dad!

I also made my own flower by cutting out single petals by hand, it was so easy and fun!

Believe In Magic

I love these soft romantic colors in the baby 2 bride line from Graphic 45 they just went perfect with the natural flowers from Prima and it was kismit that the photo went so well, I was out of color ink and looked through my already printed photos and it was like "Magic" that this one just fit soooo well!

This phot was actually a SUPER awesome gift from the very talented Design Team member Jeni Boisvert Isnt it just AMAZING!!!

Journaling Says: Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a fairy hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

It was such a beautiful quote and it went so perfect with my title, this was one of those that just came together.

Fairy Tale...Glimmer Mist Layout

I was asked at work to put together a Demo on Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels and got this fabulous idea from a very talented lady over at Scraps of my Mind Blogspot She used these awesome sprays as watercolors by utilizing a paintbrush here FunkiestBike for more shimmer and deeper color you can dig down to the bottom of the bottle and for a more watercolor effect use the watery goodness at the top! I used my silhouette machine to sketch and cut the flowers and just filled in the rest. This was the most fun and simple project with such a dramatic effect!

By the way! The aweome Jenni Boisvert photoshoped this fabulous photo for me just for fun! She is such a sweet lady! For here etsy and blog information just search my older posts, she is UBER talented!!!

Yeah I know, its something other than Graphic 45 lol! But its been awhile since ive made a pink frilly layout!

Graphic 45 SHOES!!!!

I wore out the souls in these shoes and was going to toss them until I read the May "Strip it Down" challenge on the Graphic 45 site, and this idea popped into my head, these papers were so perfect! I may even decoupage them and "try" to wear them for a day lol!

Natural Beauty

Here in little ole Idaho is this amazing sight called Shoshone Falls! It is a beautiful waterfall that jumps a 212 ft stance and is just breathtaking to witness. Every spring when the run off from the mountains has melted they release the water from the dam and usually announce it in the paper so that people can come and see it before the farmers start to drain the water to irrigate their fields. This was our first time here and man it was such an awesome sight! I got some amazing photos and just HAD to scrap them!
