Me and my girl love selfies!

I have a photo booth app that we love to play with, today I wanted to be cheered on a grey day and take pictures of my sunshine.  She always wants me to be her model so we made an agreement.  Well those pics on her camera didn’t go so well, lol.   I have many more of her that I will post soon because she did some super cute poses that reminds me of our favorite song, “All about the base” by Meghan Trainor. She is sooo adorable.  This is probably a free download that I got somewhere in the years of scrappin’  I am sorry I don’t have the credits but I see Juno, “Let it go” It seemed perfect for this layout.

I love using multiple photos on a layout but maybe that is just my shooting style.  I hope you have enjoyed my post.. I hope I have inspired you to use many on a layout, your kids need to have photos of you too for the future.  It doesn’t seem important now but it really is.  Until next time.

 

Just another football Sunday

I thought I would share this layout with you.  I met a gal on Juliana’s team that gave me a PS template and thought I would try it.  While we were chatting I had to tuck my daughter in and as I was going through the hall I saw this photo opportunity I couldn’t let go!  Sundays are pretty intense around here with Fantasy football going on.  My boy is 15 and he manages a small team of 4, thinking about taking on 12 next year.  Dad says he is a great manager , he even has my son help him with the team he has at work because he was loosing until Collin took over.  They are both still in this far in the game so I he isn’t doing to bad.  The boy is sooo smart with football I swear he knows every player, all their stats and history.  I don’t even know how he knows all this.  He can recognize them at a glance.  Well, at least I don’t have worry about the girls getting in the way ;) Since he says that sports are more important!  Love that boy!

I have been doing so many cute little duck tape crafts and not posting them, I should more often but I think that they so to silly to post but ya never know when someone is going to like it and inspire them so here is my daughter’s chapstick, my boy unwrapped it and tore off most the wrap so I fixed it pretty for her!

Do you have Fantasy Football going on in your house?  Is it just an emotional roller coaster or what?  I try to relate with my boy it was hi-lar-ious going through YouTube Gieko commercials with him one night.  My boy is like a comedian as it is, “Gimme some cold cuts” and the shuffle is big around here.  My albino boy wants beautiful dreads… on and on.. to funny.  I never laughed so hard when I woke up the day after Halloween and he had my witches wig on and a football helmet, he actually went outside and played with that thing on!  He said he was going to wear it for his coach one day but I don’t think he ever did!  Never a day without a laugh from him!  If you watch football at all or listen to the men in your house you will know what I am sayin’!   Basketball tryouts are next week so the rolls are going to get really crazy around here.  He will try out, says he doesn’t think he will make it but at least he can say he tried.  If not I think he will try and go for manager, he is short and has a bad knee, poor kid wants to be tall soooo bad. I told him he can’t help his height but he can help his speed.

Enough babbling on.  Just a proud mamma.   Thanks for looking!  If you have football on, do you craft while the boys watch? What is the craft of the day?  Or the good food of the day?

Until next time..

Just a birthday card

I thought I would show you the birthday card I made for a co-worker coming up this week.  I drew this on my Samsung Note tablet in PS Touch, then I saved it as a PNG, sent it to myself, uploaded it into the Silhouette software for a print and cut.  After cutting out the elements, added some bling.   Using twine for the balloon string.   I thought it was kinda cute!

I used a cute paper out of DCWV for a background prop.  I hope you enjoy this quick cute idea!

One heck of a digital scrapbooker’s dream sale going on now!

I am sad to see her go, as she is so talented and I feel so honored to have been on her team.  She found me through a design team call but asked me if I wanted to be a blog writer instead.  She had gone through my blog and she actually read some of the tutorials and looked into my blog before asking me to if I was interested, as she had plenty of designers to choose from.  I was so complemented I felt like I was writing for this Brazilian rock star!  Well at first I didn’t know she also does web design and got into photography professionally, the last couple of years of being on her team I have seen her photography grow tremendously.  She has decided that all 3 are just to much and from personal experience I understand you can’t do it all.  The photography is an addiction all on it’s own, and whole team is sad to see her leave designing kits.  So I thought I would post her amazing sale.  Just click on the image and it will take you to her Facebook page.

T-shirt transfer

I gave it a hand, to see what it was like then I decided to make my own design.  You see I have a 15-year-old that think’s he is “Swag” because at his school that means “cool”.   He doesn’t wear his pants below his butt, occasionally he will wear his baseball cap crooked and he is to darn cute to not love it.   I had to make him a t-shirt I couldn’t resist, gotta say he helped a little since I gave him choices of fonts and props he loves it, and so do I!

It has been forever since I have posted! Scrapbook layout inspiration, or is it?

I apologize to my readers, stick with me and I promise I will be back.  I blew up my laptop and desktop with a bad surge protector and just have been grabbing what I can when I can if I can’t craft on a tablet.  Without my own computer and Photoshop on it, I think my mojo has focused a different direction. I have hope though, for a new computer soon we will see! 

For now, I am kinda sad because my kids are going through this stage where they don’t want their pictures taken.  My son doesn’t want to be embarrassed by everyone on the football team, which infuriates me because I know all other mom’s are getting them and all I really need is one good one after a game I don’t care how sweaty and tired he looks.  I didn’t get the package and he didn’t do the individual.  He is second string so I don’t even get a alot of photo time in the game.  When he hike’s I can’t even see him but my big lens does come in handy so videos are it.  My daughter.. well a different story but I am hoping to get some today after making this.   I made her a mardi gras mask last night, she likes it so I may get a couple out of her. 

I saw this sketch on my facebook page from the Canadian Scrapbooker page.  I love love love them! It instantly inspired me to get up and make a layout.  I feel like my family is disappearing in a block of time since we don’t get out much anymore and do a lot, so our family is disappearing not being documented.  I gave the project life a shot but I am having a hard time with it.  As a photographer most my photos are vertical and they just don’t fit in my pages as easily as most ametuer photographers would be able to just slip them in.  So again I need my photoshop to preplan the pages and print out the little ones, which is annoying.  I don’t want my scrapbooking to die.  I just simply have to figure out what works for me. Plus I am just going to have to force it and think of non expensive ways to play.

I was looking up kids crafts looking for something to do with my daughter, I found some free stuff to trace that is how I came up with some shapes then cut them on the Cameo.

I have been crafting a little, making labels for people that turned out super awesome, a t-shirt transfer for the first time, will be posted this week.  I have done a few things to post soon.  So hang in there.  Hope to see you then!
