Sharing some Scrappin’

I haven’t had much time to stamp lately, but I was catching up on Latenightstampers (a yahoo group I’m part of) and saw this wonderful bookworm incorporated into a scrapbook page created by Ellen Kemper at Blinkin’, Thinkin’ & Inkin’.  She has an entire layout  around this bookworm and books.  She even shows how to make this wonderful little guy.

Here’s a picture of Ellen’s bookworm to tease you into checking out her blog.

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll be at SU’s Regional in Chattanooga next weekend and will be sharing samples and swaps from there when I get back.   I’m thinking about starting a regular feature sharing some of the great inspiration I find on other’s blogs.   Let me know if you think that’s a good idea.

I’m so excited to share some of the project I’ve made using My Digital Studio!  It’s so easy to use and the result are awesome!

First up,  I wanted to play with card, a layout without photos.    You could do this to set up your card before creating it, saving valuable cardstock, or you could print it and use it as it is, or print it and create a hybrid project by adding embellishments to it.

Isn’t that awesome!  I had so much fun creating it and now I think I might have to create it the old fashioned way too.

One of my favorite experiences was hiking to Havasu falls in the Grand Canyon with a group of friends.  It was 11 miles in carrying a backpack.  We camped in the canyon for a couple of days, swam in the small lake at the bottom of the falls in absolutely gorgeous blue green water.  I had so many blisters on my feet, that we rented a donkey to take my pack out, but I walked out myself.  I was so proud and so tired when we got to the top.  I’ve never scrapped any of the pics from that trip – until now.  This page shows a pic of some of us  when we got to the top of the canyon after hiking out (yes that’s 11 miles up hill).   Talk about some awesome memories.

I can’t wait to do the rest of the trip!

Here’s another scrapbook page that showcases a girls lunch we had on a family trip to Destin Florida.  The background is a picture of the ocean I took at Destin, and then I layered on top.

Here’s one more scrapbook layout – I’ve had so much fun with this.  I just can’t seem to stop myself!

I’ve posted this one before, but I have to leave you with my favorite christmas card ever – and my favorite pug. .  . . .
