Life is a Beautiful Ride

Happy Thanksgiving! The weather is beautiful and this week I had the chance to get some scrap time in for me. It has been very busy with work, school, gym, and activities. I am also getting the chance to really play with my MME new line that I purchased at SGD. I am also starting to put together kits for my retreat. I love this collection and for the MME challenge could not decide on which one to post. So I have two pages to share. 

Both pages I used MME Chalk Studio and On the Bright Side.

The first page is about my youngest son Charlie going for his first bike ride. He was so excited but did not grasp the concept of peddling so it made an interesting adventure. Using my chicken fence (I think) background stamp with gesso, I loved inking all the edges of my layers. Flags, flags and more flags! I love the colour of this collection. And I had been holding on for it so long! Yes people I am a paper hoarder. I also used my cricut with my favourite cartridge. 

My second page is one of two work occasions that my kids love to attend. And that is the 3M Family Picnic. The company goes all out! Ice cream, bouncy castles, play sets, cotton candy, games, hot dogs and hamburgers. You name it and they have it. 

This page used lots of flags, misting with Studio Callico, inking and adding little odds and 

ends here and there.


Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thank you for stopping by :)

The Signs

These pictures have to be my favourite. And I love the fall collection by BoBunny Autumn Song I have to give credit to my amazing husband that encourages me through all these picture and scrapbooking ideas. He helps me set the stage for it all. I based my layout of PageMaps sketch

I inked all my edges, letters and did some background stamping. Worked with lots of layers and pop ups and used my cricut flower shop cartridge to cut out the leaves. 

I love the fall colors and this collection was perfect for the start of school. 

The whole collection can be purchased at Scrappin Great Deals! Have a fabulous long weekend!
