Forever . . . a Mixed Media Scrapbook Page for Scrap FX!

Hi everyone!  It's September 11 and time to share my latest mixed media scrapbook page for Scrap FX!

This month's theme is "vintage" and I couldn't think of a better photo to use than the one of my mom and dad on their wedding day:

Here is my completed page:

I used lots of Scrap FX chipboard, transparencies, stencils and stamps this time.  I would love it if you checked out my blog post at the Scrap FX blog!  That way, you can see all of the beautiful products I used and learn more about how I made my page with my step-by-step tutorial.

Here are some close-ups and different views:





I totally enjoyed making this mixed media layout!  Since my mom's mental status has been deteriorating over the past year, it felt right to make this page in her honor!  To learn more about how to order Scrap FX products, you can check out their store here!  And we'd love it if you share your creations at the Scrap FX Creative Space Facebook page!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!  HUGS!!

Precious Moment . . . for Challenge YOUrself!

Hi everyone!  I cannot believe that it's September 7th already.  The summer here in the USA has flown by and it's time to get ready for fall.  I can feel the slightest nip in the air this morning!!

Today I am sharing a layout that I made for this month's theme over at Challenge YOUrself.  It's a challenge blog that asks you to get out from behind the camera and scrap photos with YOU in the
frame!


This month's challenge is Sunrise . . . Sunset.

I was going through old snapshots that I had and found this one taken at Marco Island of my dear sister, Cathy, and I in 1997.  (It was before Anne was born and Katie was only 3 years old.) She was going through her battle with ovarian cancer and was wearing a beautiful scarf to cover her hair loss from chemotherapy.  Cathy loved the beach at Marco Island and one of her favorite things to do was to go there at sunset!  People would gather there and actually cheer after the sun set.  It was a special time and a wonderful memory.
I scanned this photo - I know it's not the best quality, but I absolutely love it.  She passed away in 2003 and I know she is in a better place with my dad and grandparents, but I still miss her and think about her every day!!!  I totally enjoyed making this page for Challenge YOUrself.

Here is my completed layout:

I used Cocoa Vanilla Studio papers and embellishments.

Here are some close ups:



I hope you enjoyed seeing my page today. If you like challenges, I highly recommend Challenge YOUrself! Stop over and check out the latest theme here!

Thanks so very much for stopping by my blog today!  HUGS!!!

Sweet Moment . . . for Scrap the Boys!

Hi everyone!  Happy Labor Day to all of you who live in the USA.  I cannot believe that September is here already.  We are seeing all kinds of fall decorations up in our stores and there is a definite change in the air around here.  I guess this marks summer's end!

Today I am sharing a layout that I made for Scrap the Boys.

This month's theme is "Flower Love!"

I decided to use a photo that I took when my oldest daughter, Katie, was a junior in high school.  This was taken on the evening of her first prom:

She went with a friend who lived across the street from us.  It was such a sweet moment! 

Here is my completed page:

And 2 close ups:


Here's a different view:



I hope you get a chance to check out Scrap the Boys this month!  I totally enjoyed making a male themed layout with flowers!

Happy Scrapping everyone!  HUGS and thanks so very much for your visit to my blog.
