Traveling Tootsies...

D'Arcy and Philip sent some great photos from their trip to California... a real treasure trove for me to Scrapbook.... Thanks Guys!! hee hee

This photo really stood out for me... it was not only a wonderful picture... but I laughed when I realized that I immediately recognized my son's feet!!

Papers and embellishments are a real mixture from my stash... some Heidi Swapp...October Afternoon..and some I have NO idea where they originally came from!!

Capture this Smile...

This Layout was  truly a Joy for me to son's wonderful partner Philip sent me the photo of D'Arcy holding his tooth-fairy pillow that I had made for my kids... that happy smile of his actually made me smile and shed a few nostalgic tears at the same was off to the races after that!! hee hee
That wonderful sketch and color scheme for Case #157 over at CSI was perfect!!
I created the polaroid frames... pulled out my acrylic paints...then outlined them with a black photo pen...
I did a lot of stamping.. creating grids and photo strips that matched the colors for this case... and I even cheated and printed/fussy cut out those ADORABLE cats... they added just the right amount of fun and whimsy to the page....!!
I enjoyed every nano-second of this project and I am so delighted to be back scrapbooking again!!

Loving the challenges over a CSI..and thrilled that I was featured with my last layout Case #155..
This is also the first time that I played with a mixed media background.. it's kind of like holding your breath and jumping into the deep end of the pool.... then racing for shallow, safer waters!! hee hee
Actually it's a lot of fun and I want to play more with this format or at least begin to incorporate some of these techniques into my scrap pages....
This layout was for Case #156... come over and play along!!

The Many Beautiful Faces of Kiara..

I'm back over playing at CSI... on their last case #155..they even had a wonderful sketch to work with... how great is that..?? hee hee

The Title work was all done with some random stamps I have collected in my stash..many from the dollar store!!

The journaling states:
"I so dearly love this face - but I have few recent pics..she is at that age - She hates having her photo taken... "
