Time with You

Posted in 2 page Layouts, Basic Grey, Family at 8:06 am by Michelle

Some of you may recognize this layout as the Basic Grey POTM kit from January 2011 & you’d be correct! I finally got around to working on it last weekend & I like the way it turned out. It’s the first time that I have printed of pictures as Sepia, instead of coloured or black & white. I think it worked well with this layout!

The pics are of my daughter Alyssa and I. We were able to spend a couple of hours together, celebrating both Mother’s Day as well as my 42nd birthday!

We started off the afternoon by going for Sushi. This might not seem like a big thing to most people but for us it reminds us of the first time Alyssa had sushi… let’s just say that she never wanted to have it again! And now we seem to have it almost every time we get together!

We had both commented earlier in the week that we didn’t have a recent picture of the two of us, so I made sure to bring my camera & ti-pod along. So after a lovely lunch we headed down to the park & took these pics.

As always our time together seems so short but now we have current pics that we can look at and remember this special day together! Luv You Alyssa!

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!! πŸ™‚

Happy Mother’s Day!

Posted in Cards at 6:30 pm by Michelle

I created this blog back in 2008 but just never did anything with it… Between school & moving twice, I guess life just got in the way of me ever really doing anything on here!! Well hopefully that will change! I won’t be posting every day… maybe not even every week, but I hope to get some of my creations posted on here.

Up until recently all I’ve ever done is scrapbook pages, but now I’ve started making cards. Maybe it’s because I find it easier to complete a card, than complete a double page layout! As it is, I have so many pages that are just waiting for pictures to eventually get added… but it never seems to happen. 😦

Well last month I made 2 cards but forgot to take pictures of them before mailing them out! Oh well, here is the one I made yesterday afternoon for my Mom.

I don’t have many stamps… like I said, I have just started making cards, so instead of stamping a sentiment on the front of the card, as well as inside, I just use my printer. As you can see with a coloured printer I was able to get pretty close to the colour of the cardstock used!

It’s nothing fancy but it lets Mom know how much I love her!

Till next time… Happy Scrapping!! πŸ™‚
