Hey Cloud...I am so all over the place with stuff! Inks vary from Stazon-love the white & pink for stamping on transparencies...black too. Colored inks can be some of Jenni Bowlin's new ink line, Stampin Up inks, Tim Holtz, and a few others. The stamps I have been using on the tags are 7gypsies & Tim Holtz. And a few Jenni Bowlin & Martha Stewart.
-------------------------------------------------------****Back to school style.......
Amira will be starting high school this year, OMG! So we have been telling her that she needs to jazz up her style. She shocked me with her shoe choice-they are so funky & cool. We were in Anthropologie in Georgetown when I saw this cute green blazer. I really didn't think she would like Anthropologie, but she did. She loved the little blazer and this cute ruched tee to go with it. Her backpack was something she received last Christmas and still loves it....
------------------------------------------------****Kiela is truly into her look. She loves to pick out her outfit for the day, complete with jewelry.
I am thrilled to be apart of the Aug gallery over at Elle's Studio as their guest! And since receiving some product to play with I have been seriously addicted. Here is what I came up with for the gallery and soon I will post a few other projects I did just because I couldn't stop playing...
At times, it really does take a long time to load onto this site...but lately it has been much improved, and also always well worth the wait. Love your layouts, but how do you scrap all of your photos when you choose to put only one or two on a page. I would love to know, since i am a 8.5 x 11 scrapper, and always have the dilemma of two many photos to tell the story, even when i delete some. Any suggestions?
OMG, even my mom complained that her friends have issues with this blog!!! Thanks for still coming & waiting!
I like to have extra photos from one event to scrap over multiple layouts-more fun for me. You can always tuck extra photos into an envelope on your age. Or saving projects that require a lot of photos into a really quick & simple mini album. Try printing photos down to photo booth size and using multiple strips of them on your page.
LOL, I love color-in small amounts!! Like my green amoire & shelves, yellow sideboard in my blue family room. Truth be told, I'd LOVE to have my home done in all WHITE-I would be in cool heaven!!! But my hubby would prob feel like you if I did that.
Beautiful as always! I wanted to know what punch did you use on the Happy Birthday card? I also wanted to know what punch you used back in the January JBS gallery using the wood frames? I believe that layout was part of a grid challenge for JBS.
Ok, so I have to DELURK for a minute to tell you: I almost BROKE MY NECK running to Home Depot to get those urns!!! Don't worry: no kids were harmed in my pursuit of these yummies!!!! I have been looking for larger ones and never thought to check there (DUH!!!) I checked online first to see if they were available. Just a LITTLE sad that they were $14.99 each instead of $8.99 but I'm still lovin' them!!! How tall are yours? These are about 13"
Keandra...LOL, I wanted that one tooooooo! So here is a photo I snapped last weekend while me & LaVaughn were in HD for the umpteenth time with both urns-which are now in my home!! Sad thing is I need a few more for the two orchids I just bought from Ikea that weekend. I am sure you did something fabulous with yours.
not sure if you're aware but your blog loads so painfully slow that it's really hard for some of us to leave comments. not sure what you might have on here but whatever it is, it's slowing the blog waaaay down. love your new updates, just hard to comment.
Laura & Heaven...sorry you are having trouble with the blog loading. I find it to be slow on one of my pc's-I just thought it was my old computer. I'll try to get rid of some of the ads to see if that might help. I really have no idea why it loads slow-I have not done anything but change the theme(look of the blog)-through typepad. Sorry
Hi Keisha, have been subscribing to your blog for while and love your clean lines and elegant style which is not like mine at all!!! You have also induced serious studio envy. Could you tell me how you produce those lovely curved corners on the photos on your site? Have got my fingers crossed that it will be an iPhone app. Regards Donna, UK
