Club Digital November 2012 - Route 66

While my mom was here we took a spin around Route 66.  i thought this rugged looking background would look great with the barn.

Weekly Wonder at DSP

This past week I was privileged to be the weekly wonder at DSP. My layout with my friends cuties was in the front page and used as their facebook picture.

And since I am pretty sure I hadn't shared it with you here it is for further inspection.

I had the privilege of capturing pictures of a sweet friends babies and this is one of my favorites.

I knew French Blue Page Kit Plus by Meryl Bartho
would be perfect for the softness I wanted. The elements are so perfect for layering.

I overlayed the picture over the smoky gray backgorund and then overlayed the misty over the cardwood backgrounds.

Celebrate: Celebration Mega

When I saw this kit I knew I was going to use one of Jaclyn's wedding picture but then when I saw the bubbles I knew I had to use this one. Her happiness is evident and even after almost 2 years I love seeing this couple and their joy.

Robyn's new Childhood Adventures Kits and Elements are sooo much fun! I love what I came up with. It was so much fun trying to resemble the water everywhere with the glitter spatters.

Meet Molly: Meyl Bartho

I scrap mostly of my kid and this cute doggy.   I was looking for some summer pictures for this awesome kit by Meryl when I ran across this photo and just had to use it.

Molly quickly became my dog. She follows me around everywhere I go and gives me so much love. How did I ever get along without her? Love you puppy.

Her children arise and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her:
"Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”
Proverbs 31:28-29

I remember you mentioning this verse when you talked about Abuela Rosa. I can’t help but tell Adreana that I think this verse talks about you and I hope one day she will think this same about me because I learned from the best and what you taught me was to love God first just like your mom taught you.

May in our Yard

I used DSPs fabulous May club digital for this layout...

May time is definitely
a fun time in our yard.
We have butterflies
and ladybugs, praying
manthis and spiders
We also have straw-
berries, red and ready
to be picked., flowering
chives, parsley and
lots of rosemary. We
keep hoping for some
cilantro. The best
part of all is some
good times together.

Even Super Heroes

The back story... Before his birthday party I made all our guests capes that they would decorate the day of the party but I decided to make his extra special. I but his oval and a lightning bolt on one side just like he asked for and on the other side I added a B for his name. Well he didn't like it. I mean really didn't like it and here are the results of me trying to take his picture with the B. Poor little guy. 3 years later it is funny but at the moment...

I did this layout for the color challenge at Digital Scrapbook Place found here.

I knew I wanted to use the birthday CD for this layout but I couldn't quite decide which one so using the colors provided by webfrau I found papers from lots of the kits. I remembered a layout I had seen recently and decided to use shapes to use all of the papers from different kits and this is what I came up with.
