Pawsitively adorable layout-cdd

Hi fellow crafters...
I'm here today to share a cute layout I created using one of the sentiments from the Animal Antics Stamp set by Craftin Desert Diva's

Here's what I created:
I have two pups and I love taking photos of them.. I plan on printing a good one of them sleeping next to each other and then putting it on this layout :)

how about some close ups and details:

I used the little paw print stamp and added a trim of paw prints around the edge of the layout
adding a fun title and then cute sayings..

a big paw and little paw to represent my pups..

and finally stamped the sentiment onto a tag..

Here is the stamp set I used:

and you can buy it HERE

Thanks for stopping by today..
till next time..

The One I love-Sketch reveal-SOUS

Hello fellow scrappers..

I'm here today to share with you our second sketch challenge for SOUS for the month of February..The sketch was designed by me and here it is:

Super fun and can be used to create a CAS style layout or card..

Here is my take on my sketch:

I decided to use up some of the millions of paper flowers I've been hording the last few years..LOL
I will add a photo of my husband to this layout as soon as I get some of our vacation photos developed :)

How about a few close ups and some details:

I created an over sized heart, but covered the middle of it, so you can't tell what it is..LOL
Once I started adding flowers, I couldn't stop..LOL

This is a digital element, that I traced, printed and cut with my Silhouette Cameo..
Love that little machine..

my large cluster of flowers and some hearts..

and finally added a few journaling cards to my layout..

Thank you for stopping by today 
Till next time..

Project Life page-DC-Clothing

Hi Fellow crafter's..

I'm here today to share a project with you that I created for today's Die Cut reveal over at Stuck On U Sketches.
Since most of us are in the heart of Winter or in the middle of Summer (for our Aussie friends), we decided to use a die cuts of  CLOTHING..

I decided to create a Project Life spread and focused on Winter..
Here is what I created:

I added lots of fun details to my week and focused on some of the photos I had taken that week, which I need to have printed..

How about a few close ups and some details:
My first page, I took a couple of photos of my boys as they were dressed in the 
Winter best..so, I will add those to the blank cards..

For this page, I added my CLOTHING element, which is the sweater up top..
I also bake a lot, so I always tend to add a "baked" element to my pages..

My son is in the Finnish army, he gets to come home every other weekend so, I added the Home Sweet Home card for him..

 I had baked some Apple danishes, its why I have added apples to my PL spread.. Mmmmm  LOL
I'll also add the recipe which I used for future use, in case my kids might wanna try it out one day.

One of our  designers will be show casing her project everyday for the next week , so don't forget to come by S.O.U.S and check it out..

Till next time..
Happy Scrapping
