Adornit Blog Hop

Summer Favorites Layout
Summer is filled with so many special things and memories to be made! I wanted to create a layout to journal about all those precious things that are important in the summertime to me, my kids and my family! I used some of the leftover Journaling tags from a BusyWomen kit to jot down everything that comes to mind when I think of SuMmEr! and my family. I love to scrapbook and layer on the embellishments so this was a fun project for me!

Thank you for visiting my blog! The next stop on the Adornit Summer BlogHop is Wendy Smedley: visit her blog here!

Adornit Page Map Challenge

Here is the layout I made using this fun page map by Becky Fleck as part of the Adornit! Summer Blog Hop and Party! I've only used templates or page maps very rarely, so this was a fun challenge! I made a second page too as I usually work in double-page layouts! (:

Supplies used: Pink Dot Paper, Dance kit sticker, letter stickers, daisy ribbon, chipboard flowers, Green Dots Papers, JonesGirls Garden Yarn Flower, Antiqued Metallic Brads, Jewels, Love Paper (light blue), White Paper, Brown Ink, Diecuts

Happy Scrapp'n!

Kid's Project

My girls (ages 4 and 18 mos) made these frames in the craft room on our vacation awhile back, and I wanted to share the idea b/c I think it's fun and easy and turns out to be a great decoration or gift!

They used plain wood (some were varnished others were not) frames that you can pick up for around $1 a piece. They then used "tacky glue" (they poured some out on paper plates and let the smaller kids use paintbrushes to apply the glue!) to attach the clear flat-backed stones (the kind you buy in the mesh bags at the craft stores) all around the frame. It took awhile to dry but it dries clear and any excess glue can be washed away. The final results are so sparkly and pretty and I love that the craft ladies took pictures of the kids from that day for us to put in the frames!

I definately think we'll be doing this project again at home and maybe even for our next parent/child scrapbooking night too! (:
