The Original

Today I am sharing a layout I created of my Dad. 
He suddenly passed away in March. 
I miss him so very much. Life is just not the same without him. 
He was the Dad that always brought me to school on the first day every year. 
He would come home with flowers for us girls just because. 
He was the first phone call of the day on my birthday. 
He was the Dad that taught me how to change a tire, filter, break light and the list goes on. He was the Dad who rocked out with me to Metallica on the drive to school. 
He introduced me to the love of coffee and James Bond movies. He even gained weight with me while pregnant for my first child. He was the true epitome of a family man. It was an honor to be one of "Lloyd's girls". He is the original man. Miss you. 


So today I am sharing a layout I created about him. 
I was inspired by Laura's August sketch from Stuck?! Sketches.

I love the Prima - Mini Stars Finnabair Mechanicals Metal Embellishments. 


Have a great day!

Remeber Love

Hello friends, 

It has been sometime since I have been able to get crafty!!! 
Finally I carved some time for myself! 
I was inspired to create this layer based on the Prima BAP Challenge. I used Prima Salvage District Paper. Yummy Prima Flowers, Color Bloom Sprays, and my two favorite Prima Dies! 






I created this cool splatter effect with my Palette Mixed Media Watercolor Brush Pens




Love the clusters and clusters of flowers!

Here & Now

Hello! 
Today I am sharing a quick tutorial on how I created my Here & Now layout using papers from the BoBunny - Sleigh Ride collection. 

My amazing photographer Barb Weir Photography captured this really cute picture of my son. This picture captures his personality. 

He was doing his "cool kid model pose" as he calls it. 

My Layout was based on the Creative Scrapbooker Sketchy Challenge. 


Here is the sketch my layout is based on! Kelly Klapstein


I cut one 6x12 pieces from the BoBunny - Sleigh Ride - Tradition 12x12 Paper




and a 6x12 inch piece from the BoBunny - Sleigh Ride - Logs 12x12 Paper




One 1x12 inch piece of white card stock along with a 4x6 piece of white card stock for my photo mat. I adhered these two a 12x12 piece of pattern paper. 
My goal was to have a little light color peeking around the edges as I distressed all three pieces. 


I then cut some stickers in half from the fabulous BoBunny - Sleigh Ride - Combo 12x12 Sticker Sheet  and adhered it behind my picture. 




I wanted a "wood" feel layout and cut out some of my branches and adhered them to the bottom left corner of my layout.



I then layered my snowflake die cuts with stickers again taken from the combo sheet. A few close up shots.

#hscapturelife


My heart broke reading Heidi Swapp's blog post concerning the lost of her son. Crafting and being creative does heal. And in the next chapter of her life she is encouraging all of us to document those moments. 

Take a look at this video which describes how she will capture life. 30 DAYS. 30 PROMPTS. 30 REASONS. 


I was late reading my blog post to start on the first day. So below I have captured some of these great prompts to get us going. 





Here are some products you will find helpful on this journey.
