"Monkey" Layout

Hey Yall,

When my son wanted to climb on a massive Oak tree I really could only think of one thing....picture time!!!!  (as if there was any thing else to think about right lol)

All the papers are from Cosmo Cricket "Recycle" collection
The chip board letters were in my stash.  I THINK they are from Recollections.
I had the little monkey in my stash.  I thought it was fitting for the layout. 
I added a little washi tape too.....I am a washi addict and proud of it ;)
I added several layers, doodled with a brown pen, and used a 1 1/2 and 5/8 circle punch for some added interest.
I hope Yall are having a fantastic weekend!!!!

"Priceless" LO

Hey Yall,

I am not sure if Yall have seen this picture before or not but I saw it the other day and had to make a layout about it.  I love love love this picture and it was taken at the perfect time.
Yellow paper - Sassafras "Serendipiy"
Background paper - hhhmmm not really sure
The two brown papers came from my stash
I added a little blue pearls here and there
The little banner die  - QuicKutz "Tattoo Art"
Sign on the top left - QuicKutz "Nameplate"
I added brown bakers twine and make the triangles out of a square punch and cut them in half. 
I think the font is from "Clear Dollar Stamps" but I am not 100% sure.
I love how this one came out.  I don't usually use yellow but I really like it with the brown.
Have a great weekend Yall!!!

"GO!" layout

Hey Yall,

I hope everyone is have a great day!!
Here is a layout I made about my sons' school field trip to Chuck E Cheese.  Last year he went but we had to leave about an hour into it because he was super over stimulated. (Autism)  This year, on the other hand, was sooo much better and we both had a fabulous time. 
Everything I used came from the October Afternoon "Road Map" collection
Added some layering and doodles with a brown pen
I also added a brown bag for under the photos just because lol ;)
Have a crafty day Yall!!!

Had computer issues but all better now!!

Hello Yall!!!!

WOW, its been a little while.  I had to put my computer in the hospital but now its all better and I'm ready to go.  :)

Here are the pictures of my goodies I made in September for my son's 6th birthday.  Man, time go toooo fast.

 I found these pictures on the computer.  I blew them up and tapes them to the front of cotton candy containers. 
 I also found this picture on the computer but photo shopped the words on them.  So cute and funny!
 A friend of mine made his cake.  LOL  Tooooo cute and he LOVED it!

My friend also made the cupcakes to look like grass with M&Ms on them as the eggs.  I made the toppers from pictures off the computer. 

Everyone had a blast and Azland (my son) LOVED all the Angry Bird decorations.  We had to leave them up for a few days after. lol

I hope everyone is doing well and those who have been effected by Hurricane Sandy my heart is with Yall!  (seems like Hurricane Sandy was similar to Hurricane Katrina which I went through....ugh...stay strong Yall)

What I have been up to....

Hey Yall,

WOWZA its been a little while since I have post anything. (I will have to change that :) )  I have been playing catch up after being out a week due to Hurricane Isaac.  Everything is okie dokie around these parts but the flooding was an issue.  School was out that whole week due to flooding more than damages.  BUT none of us had any real damages so we are lucky.

Here are a few layouts I have been working on this past week.  I am not posting the details cause my time is going to be short right now but if Yall have any questions please ask and I will gladly get back to Yall.

 My son is so goofy some times....totally a picture moment.  I created the background with Mister Huey's color misters.
My boyfriends dog during the hurricane.  He was sitting on my couch. lol too funny
***He also past away last week.  He will be missed by so many and he was loved by all.***
 My son finally started playing with Play-Doh.  He never liked the feel of it before.  Therapy is working!!!
My and my boyfriend....I love this picture.  I was just having fun with some of my scraps and this is what I came up with.

I hope Yall have a fantabulous weekend!!!  I am in the process of making my son's "Angry Birds" birthday decorations for next weekend.  I will have plenty of pics to share!!!
