scrapbook treasures...

i am triple tasking. i love to make use of my time and i love to scrapbook…so i am trying to get as much done as possible. over the past few weeks i have gotten some layouts done that i have really been wanting to do and i have found the perfect motivation for getting them done…work and a contest!
here are the last two layout that i have done. with gorgeous paper from my local lss, hearts-n-crafts and for the we love our members contest over at treasured scrapbooking. thanks for looking.


on st. paddy day last year...amory was convinced that he could actually catch a leprechaun. the little piece of green felt in the the "actual" piece of fabric left behind by the leprechaun. i can't believe i was able to hold onto it for a whole year. thank goodness i finally got this lo done. lolthe journaling reads:"your catch a leprechaun. your mind never stops working. to you all things are set the trap then sat and waited, excited...hoping to capture the elusive character. in the morning all that we had caught was a piece of his green, felt coat. he had escaped, leaving tiny, glittery footprints i sit back and watch all of the possibilities flash across your eyes...i am amazed and humbled to be your mommy. maybe one day we can catch that leprechaun together."

i hope you always remember this feeling

maelee’s smile is so huge in this picture. whenever i look at it…i smile just as big. i love capturing these moments…and i love preserving them in scrapbook style too:)

more graphic 45

yay! more graphic 45 projects! i was going to post more layouts…but then i loved them so much, that i thought i’d try and save them for possible publication…so here are a couple of altered projects. i got this cigar box from rusty pickle and the graphic 45 papers went so well with it. i loved layering the roses in the bottom corner. then of course a little dab of stickles makes them pop.
as for the washboard…i’ve had it for quite a while. i wanted to do something really special with it as it came from someone on my hubby’s side of the family. i really wanted to be able to use it. so when i saw the domestic goddess line of paper, i knew that would be perfect. i turned the wash board into a meal planner/date keeper. so we can slip our meal ideas under the magnets i made and clip up our planned events to the bottom “clothesline”. viola you have an altered washboard. i should have taken some close ups on the magnets too. they came out sooooooo cute with the dimensional glaze applied to certain items, like the juicy lemons and some of the logos. so cute, i can’t wait to hang it up.

thanks for looking. if you are coming over to see the graphic 45 stuff and you too have submitted...good luck:) can't wait for friday...or maybe i
