April Showers Bring May Flowers

Will it ever stop raining here in Maine??? My May flowers need sunshine :)
Big sister is trying to make little sister smile for the camera. She is crying because she is...WET.

This page was created by using a template for slicing then folding the design. Underneath the folds there is a different paper showing through. I used the template during a scrapbook store class.

Lace Flowers/BlogHop

It's time to celebrate National Scrapbooking Day this Saturday May 7th with our fabulous:

Divas Mansion Tour Blog HOP!!!

There are so many ways to make homemade flowers, I'm going a little crazy. I have quite a collection just waiting for the right lay-out.

The 3 pinwheel flowers are made from pink lace then centered with layered punched out flowers and a brad. The large flower is a 12inch piece of lace that I dyed with perfect pearls before making the flower. Check out for great flower making tutorials!!

We Have a Story To Tell

These are the first two pages to our family album going back to 2003. (Separate from the kids albums).
This is my niece, Stephanie.

About Me

One of the challenges last week was to create a page about myself. Hmmm! Not the kids?? So I took a lay-out about my first weekend away to a scrap and turned it into a page that I otherwise would not have taken the time to do. I also used my "life mission statement" I created a couple years ago. I hadn't done anything special with this statement until this challenge came up (it's in the envelope). The lay-out also includes my favorite quote from John Eldredge and a verse from a song about friends.
Thanks for the inspiration Creative Scrapbook Diva's!
