Just Relaxin'

I traced the lines on the paper; then used scissors to cut it. Far from perfect, but who would know? Love this cricut cart font (Making the Grade).

Times Square at Radio City

Just layer some colors - any size will work; and I did some tearing.

The Story

My Tuesday night scrappers know how important I think journaling is - even if you don't like your handwriting. The story is always important - and this one was central to the pictures. But it was a long story, so I typed it, and printed it on vellum.

Having A Ball

Traced a circle with a plate, then zig-zagged with scissors, and I was happy with the result. Used my cricut for the lettering. I love that font. And I think my nephew is the cutest little guy!

NYC Radio City 4th Row

I decided I was going to use up some left over 8x8 paper on a 12x12 layout no matter what. A little busy, but I like it.

What Would Have Been

Always tough to scrapbook a tough subject, but I was really very pleased with how this turned out.

Sweet Pea

Weave strips of paper and you can come up with a great look.

Folding strips

Folding back and forth a strip of paper can have great results. so easy and such a crisp look.

Running Brides

I love this layout because it's a reminder of such a great, fun day. This layout was homework to an online class I took - it's hard for me to "just cut out a shape" and not care if it's perfectly aligned or not. Used my cricut for the lettering, and I was very happy with the end result.


This was a fun layout to do - my nieces posing and the finished product. I used rub-ons for the first time - not a big fan, but that could be because I just haven't worked with them enough.


I love this paper - CM's Winter Additions. I cut out the circle using little zig-zags - the best way for me because then I don't care if it's not perfect.

We're Following the Leader

I love this layout because it's of one of my favorite places - Mountain Meadows Lodge in Killington, VT, the site of my scrapbook weekends.
I printed the song "Following the Leader" from a site online onto vellum. I love how the animals really do play follow the leader. :)

Double Heart Cart

Creative Memories new double heart cartridge fits the border maker. I just received this today, so I'll post a picture of a page this weekend.

I Cried Uncle - so I have a new Blog

I couldn't figure out how to add posts to my old blog; so I've created a new one.
