Inspired by:

As a scrapper I am always looking for different inspirations, whether it be a personal style I admire or a technique that I am anxious to try out.

There are so many talented ladies out there who put pages together that make me run to my nearest LSS and purchase all the latest and greatest products as well as things I wouldn't normally purchase.

Case in point, this punch:

It is a punch anywhere punch.  No more constraints as to where you can punch on the page.

And while I thought it was cool, I'm closing in on about 50 punches so I probably don't really need another punch when I have one that does *almost* the same thing right?


Enter Davinie Fiero.

Everything this lady touches turns to gold. 

And after seeing  this layout, and this layout, and heck even this layout  I caved and bought both the square and circle punch.  I have used them both so far and there is a learning curve for sure until you get the hang of it. 

(please excuse the blurry old photos and my apparent lack of photography skills)

I did this one for Tina, using some more Bo Bunny.  I have been hoarding these pictures for years. The journaling is about my deep love and appreciation for the ocean.  Either one that brackets our beautiful country will do.

My layout doesn't look anywhere as cool as hers do, but it is nice to have amazing inspiration out there to get your creative juices flowing.

What is inspiring you to create these days?  Link me up.  I'd love to see what some of your favorites are.

How about some baby...

Layouts that is!

Tina gave me some Imaginisce papers to work with, and lets face it,

I have no shortage of baby pictures right?????

I'm hitting the ground running this morning.

We are launching a new payroll system at work and guess who needs to be there on day one?!

It is also my Mom's birthday today...Happy Birthday Mom!

In the haze that has been my life for the last 4 weeks I totally forgot to book it off...UGH.

We will be celebrating tomorrow with tacos and cake.

Enjoy your weekend!

June Project 12

Well hello Blogger!

It has been sometime hasn't it?

Truth be told I have sat down many a time to write something only to erase it and log off.

I have thoughts brewing in my head but it seems for now the heat has muddled them up and they never come out the way I intend them to be.

Even scrapping my memories seem to have taken a back seat to everyday life.

June was busy for our family.

We took the boys on their very first road trip out east to see their Grammy and Aunty  K.

They did fabulous on the 10+ hour drive.

Mind you, we stopped allot and stayed overnight in a hotel at the half way point.

But still, props to The Bigs!

Facebook made me giggle as I looked back on it, and I'd like to share but I somehow deleted the file...UGH!

And my take on it:

(click to enlarge)

Tina gave me these bright and fun Bo Bunny papers to work with so I switched the sketch up a bit to show the variety of the papers.You would now it unless you looked really close but I used seven of the patterned papers.  Crazy.....

It's been a long hot, hazy and humid day here with record breaking temperatures so I am still not overly energetic to type.  Please forgive me if I don't have anything interesting to share over the next while.  I'll be reading just not contributing as much.

Night night.
