Digital Age

Ahhh, Christmas morning. 
Two little people enjoying the magic of the holiday and having fun….playing with digital devices??? 
Wow.  When did this happen?
Cousins sitting side-by-side with their iPads and iPods -too cute to pass up this photo opportunity!
I thought I would make an ironic scrapbook layout to showcase their modern toys by making the page in a Vintage style. 
I used www.picnik.com to make the picture look like a Polaroid. 

The paper I used is from Sassafras Lass.  I embellished the page with a paper doily and some handmade crocheted flowers. 
Thanks for stopping by!

Retro Woodland Cuties

I love working with Vintage or Retro images.  They are just so sweet and cute and sweet and cute
This kitschy retro card is so happy and I smile each time I walk by it!  I made it last night using one of my favorite images (I’ve included it here in the blog, so you can print and use it too!)

I’ve embellished it using the Sassafras Lass Hog Heaven line, some ribbon and a Vintage style button.  There’s also space on the Happy Birthday tag to write the recipient’s name.

Here is the JPEG for all of you if you’re feeling in the mood for some retro crafting:
If you’d like to experiment more with digital collages, please stop by my other Etsy shop, Collage Crazy, at:
Now that my eBay store is closed, I’ll be spending more time doing what I enjoy most ~ crafting!  I’ll be offering lots of new collages there (as well as here on the blog) in the coming weeks.
Tomorrow is the drawing for my first giveaway! 
Last call for candy! 
I’m so excited about it!  Now is the time to put your name in there, if you haven’t already.  It is open to anyone ~ no matter your country!  I’ll ship it to England, China, New Guinea…even Canada!  🙂

My Greatest Inspiration

My little tiger, Jackson, is my greatest inspiration.  I take picture after picture (after picture) of this little fellow.  Everything he does makes me laugh (except when done at 11pm…not so funny then).

I always wanted children, but never did I imagine my heart’s ability to love.  I love my hubby, of course, but there is some kind of awe when looking at my child that I had never experienced before becoming a mommy.

I look back at pictures and layouts sometimes and already feel nostalgic at how fast he’s growing up and changing (he’s only 3 for cryin’ out loud!)

No matter the day we’ve had together (I’m a stay-at-home mom), or how trying the last few hours before bedtime (don’t even get me started) ~ when I see him sleeping, all is forgotten. 
My heart melts again and I’m putty in his tiny, sticky hands.
P.S. Don’t forget about the Spring Scrapbook Giveaway!  The lucky winner will be chosen on Friday!!
