Hello Today | Layout

oh My dear Nieces ... I'm happy they give me the opportunity to take pictures of them to Scrapbook... otherwise you'd be seeing my cat way more than you do now!

This layout was created using the April Kit from Cocoa Daisy - I used pieces from the main Kit and the Day in the Life kit.  I pretty much cut up journal cards, papers, and added my own twist to this page.

Have a great week!

A Toronto Experience

I hope you're weekend was fabulous!

Hubby and I decided on a last minute trip to Toronto and managed to get tickets to an NHL Hockey Game for Saturday Night! We saw Toronto play Montreal ... and well it was a great 10 minutes then kind of went downhill, sadly the Maple Leafs didn't win but it was still an awesome time.

We got to enjoy the Keg Restaurant which we love, we walked to the Marche Restaurant / Brookfeild Place - on Saturday and ate some YUMMY pad thai, walked again to the Eaton Centre and I did a little LUSH Shopping while hubby enjoyed browsing his favorite stores.

Saturday we went to the game with our matching jersey's we cheered for our favorite NHL team. The crows was electrifying until the Montreal Canadiens scored the second goal... and third and fourth. ;-(

We then started walking back to our hotel and realized we were going in the wrong direction ... yup I do that a lot -- we walked so much this past weekend I have blisters on my feet and my legs are sooo sore!  After the game we eneded up in this ' cheezy ' little place to order Greek food for take out and WOW it was awesome! I think it was called Alexandro's next to the Westin.

Anyhoo, it was a great time ;-)

Just Being Silly | Layout

 hello readers!

i hope you are all doing well and not too much into spring cleaning mode! I haven't started yet, and seriously have no real energy for it. I'll start when the sun starts shinning and the weather is a bit warmer. So Cold here lately... brr!! Like still sweater weather and raincoats, i'm kind of getting tired of it and so looking forward to warm sunshine.

I have a layout to share with you today .. it's called Just Being Silly
My nieces are too much fun! I visited them last week and played around with them a bit - before i leave i always need a picture of them - and this time they didn't want to participate so i asked them to make silly faces and VOILA! I got my picture.
I couldn't help myself but put my nieces finger up her nose... I'm an aunt that does that! LOL...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Amy Tangerine collection YES PLEASE! I've used quite a bit of it and still have lots left.. it's so fun, love the diecuts, stickers, and I used my cameo for the title.  Lately i've been LOVING adding a little hand stitching to my pages. That's the Cross Stitcher in me! ;-)

I hope you have a fabulous weekend playing with paper! Don't forget we have a sketch challenge at Creative Scrappers that ends at the end of APRIL!
CLICK HERE for details ... also my sketchbooks are in preorder mode again if you missed out on the first shipment you can order them HERE 

thanks bunches!

What happens when 8 ladies get together at a scrapbook event? TONS of SMILES!

Perhaps you have a friend you can smile and laugh with? Maybe give her a call today and tell her how much she means to you ! xx

CHA | Layout

Yes, it's April and I'm still scrapbooking pictures of CHA from January 2013.
I think this is the last one! ;-)

On this page i showcased a few pictures and some of you have been asking " how did you do that?"

I used an online photo editing software called Pic Monkey. You can use photoshop or any other software would work. I find PIC Monkey easy for me -- so that's what i use. 

Visit http://www.picmonkey.com/
Click on  Create Collage
Click on OPEN PHOTOS - add photos from your hard drive that you want on this collage.
Click on the 3 mini photo frames and edit your layout - I use SQUARE DEAL 9
I add my photos and save picture to my harddrive.
i then print my picture on a 5x7 sheet and cut off 2" to form a 5x5 square picture with 9 mini prints.

I hope this helps!
have fun with it, it's a great way to add multiple photos on a page ;-)

SCT | Guest Blogger

Hello Everyone!
I'm a guest blogger at Scrapbook & Cards today and I am back with you today to share some embellishment ideas for your Project Life pages. I usually enjoy my embellishments to be flat or non bulky so the items that I'm using today in my spread will be as such.

On my spread I used - Silhouette cut outs, Washi Tape, Stamps, DMC Floss for stitching, confetti and wood veneers. I feel like these embellishments are ME right now and I'm enjoying the simplicity of adding these to my journal cards.

For Close Up pictures of my journal cards |
Visit Scrapbook & Cards Today online. CLICK HERE!

Hopefully I've given you a few ideas and Thank you so much for joining me this week and enjoy creating your own Project Life album!

SCT | Guest Blogger

Scrapbook & Cards today asked me to be a Guest Blogger for SCT! On the SCT blog this week I'll be sharing a few of my Project Life details and perhaps you'll be inspired to start your album! 
Today I'll be sharing with you you my Project Life spread for the week of March 26-31 2013.  If you haven't started your Project life album yet, it's never too late. Last year I kept browsing galleries and wondered if this type of documenting would be for me. I have no children, a spoiled cat, I work full time and really didn't think my life was that fabulous. Once I started documenting my weeks, I realized it's not about the fabulous lifestyle, the perfect photos - it is for anyone who wants to document LIFE! 
This is MY last week of March. As you can see I didn't add a date. It's straight forward for me and I felt it wasn't that important for my spread.

 At the beginning of the week,  I took my weekly selfie, took a picture of my current Scrapbook project, a picture of hubby and I and then a few important moments.

The second part of my spread is usually the end of the week where I take a photo of something scenic - such as the Kennebacasis River on my way to work, the weather forecast, Eddie the cat and since this was the end of the month I included my monthly screen shot of Project 365. 
Here are a few detailed photos of my spread and perhaps I've  encouraged you to start your own version of Project Life 

Project Life is a system of documenting everyday memories by Becky Higgins. For more details about Project Life you can visit her website at BeckyHiggins.com

 I'll be back on Wednesday to share a little more of my Project Life with you!
