Ready to Scrap!

Anyone notice that many brands are now offering pre-made layouts?
I found this pre-made page from K & Company at the scrapbook store the other day and HAD to pick it up!  It made for one of the easiest layouts I’ve ever done!
I love all the paper piecing and stitching on the page.  I added two felt embellishments from American Crafts and a quote sticker at the bottom (just because I always feel that I have to add something myself). 
This layout came in handy when I planted my garden last month, too (here’s a picture of my dog, hubby, son and sister-in-law).
We R Memory Keepers also offers lots of adorable pre-made double layouts for around $7.00!
It’s so exciting to see the new developments in the paper crafting world.  These ready-made pages really make it easy to get a lot of work done quickly, without having to sacrifice style.

EGGciting Stuff!

We had a special Easter this year, celebrating a week late, due to allergies.  It sure wasn’t any less special, however (and the bonus is that we found LOTS of discounted goodies, since we bought after the holidays….hmmm….maybe Christmas in January this year? 
Te, he).
The cousins had a blast looking for eggs in Nana and Papa’s yard (note to self: next year, count the eggs before you hide them.  Nana and Papa will probably be finding eggs well into the Fall).
I loved using all the new Little Yellow Bicycle Fresh Print Clothesline paper on these layouts.  The colors are FABULOUS and have the Vintage feel that I love so much.  I hand cut the tape measure here out of the back of the grey base card stock. 
The picture above was made by adding a white frame in Photoshop and then printing one 5×7 and one 4×6 and then layering them.
I used lots of fun embellishments on this page, from felt K & Company to rhinestones.  These layouts feel so much like Spring and I have them up on our refrigerator as we speak.  I love walking by them.  🙂
