Road Trip!

Well, a road trip from last year!  I finally completed the Prim n' Punky album from Punky Sprouts!  This one was a bit of a challenge for me (in a good, fun way!) with it's gated cover and pages that open different ways!  I had to plan it out a little more than I usually do!  But I think that is most likely a good thing! :)  I love the combination of chipboard, canvas and acrylic pages in these albums!  So fun to go from one to the other!  I did this album with some really fun travel papers, journal spots, borders and alphabets from My Little Shoebox!  I am not usually a doodler, but I thought these papers called for it!  Took me back to all the doodling I used to do on my high school notebooks!

Easter Layouts

Here are a few more I did with the May kit!  The first one I used our 2009 Easter pictures and I loved the colors for Easter so much that I did 2010 too! :)  The second one was with a sketch by Kerryn.  If you like the sketch...give it a whirl and enter our drawing for a great prize!
Working on some Punky Sprouts today and hope to have it up on the blog in a few days!

Teacher Appreciation Week...Day 4

Isaac insisted on being in the picture this time!  Not sure what this smile/laugh/facial expression is that he's got going on but I think he's cute anyway! :)

Cosmo Cricket Sketch Challenge

I've never done one of Cosmo Cricket's blog challenges before.  Not that I don't like them or have enough CC papers to do it...just never found the time...Until now!  I loved Gudrun's sketch and wanted to give it a shot!  I had just taken this picture of Erin last week and wanted to scrap it!  Love that this layout has 3 different CC lines...Girl Friday, Boyfriend and Material Girl!
Here's the sketch:
And my layout:

Teacher Appreciation Week...Day 2

We're having fun with this, this year!  Isaac loves doing it all himself!  And I think he especially loves that he gets to use my scrapbooking paper and supplies!  We taped the rockets on the back of the candy bars.  (he has 2 teachers.)

Teacher Appreciation Week...Day 1

I don't know how this sneaks up on me every year but it does! I needed a quick and easy token to send tomorrow. Found this list of ideas. We went with "You're Tea-rrific" I let Isaac (Kindergarten) do all of it himself. In fact, I had a tag out for him to make and it was his idea to spell it out with the tea!

I'll show you what we make each day this week! But even if you don't have the time, don't forget to thank a teacher!
