Here are some past pictures of Hannah which I have been holding on to waiting for inspiration. Finally I saw something with a collage of photos in a circle in a magazine. Using that theme, I made this and added bling for a challenge. Hope you like it. It's almost all traditional, Just used the computer for the journaling in the round. But next time...........

My daughter wanted to know what my "Annual" Halloween decor would be for her home. Well, Just because I happen to make a couple of things in the past, I didn't realize it was an annual thing but as the good mother and grand mother, I needed an idea. I made a wreath. I used the Cricut to cut dozens of black cardstock leaves which I outlined in white pen and stickles(green, orange and purple). I then curled the leaves on the handle of a whisk. I used a glue gun (1st time) to attach them to a styrofoam ring which I covered in ribbon for sturdiness. I then made the paper ornaments, come with photos and added them, along with the web, spiders, skeletons and pumpkins, all cut with the cricut. The big skeleton is a Sizzix die. so off to Boston it went but not before I took this photo which I entered in a Holloween papercraft contest and won FIRST PLACE. YEAH!!!!! The prize, which arrived was a large halloween photo collage with the photos in individual frames, which I can use during the year for my own photos. It's really beautiful. I'll post when it's hanging.

Wow did I just say 2010. I remember 2000 when we all thought computers would crash and things would change so drastically. Well there were changes. Crazy thing is I remember like it was yesterday. I am back in PA with so much to do and lots of time to procrastinate about it as well. I had a great summer, mostly in Florida. Terry is doing well with the chemo and a full recovery is expected. Tune in soon for pages and pics from Florida.

I have been so busy the past couple of months with grand daughter's birthdays, holidays, and a trip to Florida for a month. While there I only did digital scrapbooking. Yes, I miss touching the blessed paper, but digi is a great way to go when supplies are limited and the laptop is handy. Also, It gave me the opportunity to catch up on photos that are in my computer that may never have been printed. I now have an Epson R1900 so I can print 12 x 12 pages and I must admit, it is really great. So the following 16 pages are all digital. I entered some challenges on the Jessica Sprague site and also took a couple of online classes learning new techniques. Most of these pages have at least one technique that was new to me. The Duckling Day and the Wall at BU are 8 x 8 --9 grid photos using digi brushes for the flourishes, and these will actually be used on a traditional page, so that's good too. I like the idea of Fancy photo editing and then printing for paper scrapbooking. I am somewhat new to this. I hope you all like the digi layouts, let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by.

Here are two layouts from Hannah's preschool, the Kingsley Montesorri School in Boston. I had a great time. The first layout is paper but the Love element is digital as well as the photo block and journaling. The second one is all digi. These are from the current trial free classes at JessicaSprague.com.

I designed a very casual invitation for Sami's second birthday as she is a casual kid. The wording inside is very flighty keeping with the butterfly looseness and style. Hope the kids and parents like them. All have different paper butterfly (shoo...scraps) and some colored cards are different from the original idea of pink and yellow. The envelopes are all pink. These were easy to cut on the cricut using DS. Recipe for butterfly and front circle from Susan Blu, Font is Century Gothic done in Photoshop. What do you think? (click on images to see larger.)

I printed the text before during a class using Photoshop Elements to to write in a circle and I knew I wanted to use this picture for a layout using it. . The button challenge gave me new inspiration to get it done. (Click photo to see it larger).

i purchased some stitching templates to use with the cricut to cut circles and then thread with whatever, I may use ribbon. I am going to do a circle theme. It's for a Hannah page and a contest. After I finish I will be doing Sami's invitations for her 2nd birthday party. It's a butterfly theme and SusanBlu has a great pop out butterfly card. We'll try it and see how it goes. Stay tuned.

To have more to do than eat out, play, swim, beach, tv and sight seeing Melissa bought a trike for Hannah during vacation. A good time to learn for a Boston kid. She learned in 5 seconds. Some mishaps but nothing stopped her.

I accidently found a web site that had something called a Speed Scrap. It started at 9pm and gave instructions of what to do every 10-15 minutes. No pictures amd no freebies, just your own stash. I tried it with some of my supplies that I tagged recently with ShoeBox and here is my result. It's Sami looking sweet as usual. Took me less than an hour. A miracle for me. (Click to see it larger.)
