I follow my kids around daily to snap them in all their cute little things that they do on a day to day basis. My son (who is 5) already gets annoyed when I get my camera out. But he’s so stinking cute I can’t help but take pictures!!!

When I first saw Bo Bunny’s Mama-Razzi line I was so EXCITED!!! The colors are great and the line is amazing! So for months I have drooled over it every time I saw it in a magazine. I made a promise that I would not buy many scrapbook items so I could use up some of what I had. This has been a good thing as it has eliminated my “collecting” habit that I have.

Well at ScrapFest I broke down and bought some of the papers from the Mama-Razzi line. I have created a layout today using it…this is a layout I have created for a challenge. The challenge is to use a large diecut and cut it half and off center the halves on the page.

I cut the medallion shape out using the Storybook cartridge on my Cricut. I selected the Fit to Page option which cut it 11 and 1/2 inches. I distressed the edges with my Distress-it-All and inked of course!!!

The flowers were cut from George and crumpled inked then sprayed with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist to help the ink spread!

Well I did my first UmWow Sketch Mania submission ever (Check out Sketch Mania here!!!)…kind of! I took DeeDee’s sketch that looks like this:


I cut 5 3/4” squares then inked them with distress inks…spritzed them with water inked a little more. Inked a stamp with embossing ink…sprayed it with water and stamped it to create a subtle design in the Distress Inks. I’m doing a Think Ink class this month through another scrapbook group on Cafemom I’m in so I’m learning all kinds of exciting Distress Ink tips!! I’m also thinking that my 4 meager Distress Inks are not longer adequate.

The flowers were large white flowers I inked w/ Walnut Stain distress ink and sprayed with Glimmer Mist…my new FAVORITE!!!

So without further ado…here’s my layout!!

Bailey Layout


I am going to try to do the other sketch and the new one!! We’ll see how it goes!!

(Oh by the way… is the sponsor this month for the winner of the challenges…so play along!!)

Feeling Crafty?

I am! I’m jumping at the gun too for my Glue Glider to get here!! I am in LOVE with Vario Hermafix…but I may have found a new adhesive that I like better!!!! Here Michelle and I (that’s my excited face :0) are at Scrapfest testing them out…simply AMAZING!!!


This is another fun ScrapFest layout that we “lifted” from the check-in Table!


But enough about ScrapFest! Here’s a cute layout I did with I think My Mind’s Eye paper of my Favorite little Niece!! She’s so stinking cute!!


I did a flower with circles…Lollipop flowers I believe!


Nap times over…and now it’s time for my Mommy Duties!! Happy Scrapping!!! Heather
