Scrap it with a song challenge - Love Story

This is for the Scrap it with a song challenge.  This weeks song is Love Story by Taylor Swift.  I'm so used to scrapping about my kids.  I thought it might be fun to do a wedding page.  I don't think I've ever scrapped any photos of my wedding.  I actually didn't start scrapbooking until after my son was born.  This was a fun challenge! Wow, we look young! We were young! LOL! (=
Lots of different products on the page.  The flowers were rolled. TFL!!

The Pink Elephant challenge - Pretty as a Princess

This week at The Pink Elephant there is a a color challenge and the color is PINK!
With two little girls I have plenty of pink around here! (=  Check it out at
I started by using my walnut spray ink in cherry blossom for the background.  The background paper is Ocbober Afternoon.  I used Thickers and tiny alpha stickers.  The larger flower was made with alternating punches.  I loved how the lace flower came together.  It was just some old white lace I had laying around.  I sprayed it with my cherry blossom ink and glued and twisted it into shape!  Finally I did some distressing around the edges! The picture is one of my sweet little girls! (=  TFL!!

Happy Mothers Day!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Mothers Day.  I have the sweetest family.  I woke up to many fun gifts.  I love the adorable art work and poems from the kids.  My son says - If I could give my mom anything, I'd give her... a super deluxe  combo crafting kit.  My daughter Cambria is so sweet.  She made me lots of beautiful artwork and also a necklace. She wrote my mom is beautiful because of her smile. (=   My 3yr old drew a picture of me (in the bottom right corner).  LOVE it!!  My husband made breakfast and gave me some beautiful flowers.  Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
