Lets go Fly a Kite LO

I created this lo for a couple of challenges. First I will use it for Scrapaholics Anonymous contest this month to create a vacation lo. Secondly I will use it at Lasting Memories secret challenge this week. The secret is my journaling which is hidden on a tag behind my photo. I used a picture from our recent trip to Indian Rocks Beach, FL in July. After dinner one night we went down to the beach and took a kite so Will could fly it. He had a lot of fun with it and I got some great photos. I used my cricut a lot on this lo. I cut the kite and sandbucket from Boys Will be Boys cartridge. The sun was from Graphically Speaking. Clouds were cut from Mickey and Friends and the sandcastle was from Lifes a beach. I just used cardstock for the background and photo frame and a piece of "sand" paper from Hobby Lobby for the bottom and the tag. Thanks for looking!

Double Rainbow Layout

Last Saturday we had a huge storm come through quickly but then the sun came back out and it was nice again. Will and I went to run some errands and when we were leaving CVS he said "Look a rainbow!" and then a few seconds later he said it was a double rainbow. I looked and it was so I pulled over to take a few pictures. I had never seen a double rainbow before so it was really cool. The second rainbow was very faint and doesn't show great in the photo but if you look close its there. I used SEI Corrine Over the Rainbow for the rainbows. I just cut it out from the 12x12 paper so I had two rainbows. I used the cordinating puffy stickers for the clouds. Title is made with Thickers letters. My journaling is on a sticker from Echo Park dots and stripes collection. Thanks for looking.

Finally a new LO! Happy Easter

I saw a lo similiar to this and I knew I wanted to use this photo with it. I had these pictures taken at JC Penneys when Will was 1.5 years old. They had real bunnies there to take the photos with and they all turned out great. I need to use a few others on some lo's soon. I miss this little baby! I used the Cricut Easter Cartridge for the grass, eggs and bunnies journal circle and Happy Easter. I added some blue glittered brads to the bunnies for eyes. I cut out the fancy background piece from Elegant Edges using cardstock and piece from a DCWV stack. Thanks for looking!
