Capturing Special Moments.....

I took alot of candid shots of 3 of my boys just having a great time @ Huntington Beach, CA. The water was freezing cold, but that did not stop my boys from jumping in and enjoying the waves. Ohhhh, to be young again.
I could just go to the beach everyday and just sit in my beach chair just listening to the waves, and just look as far as my eyes could see. But on this day it was very special. I was seeing the beach through my childrens eyes, and capturing every single moment. How awesome is that?
Over 100 images captured, I have plenty of pictures to keep me scrapping for days, or weeks. So I went through the photos, printed just a few of my favorites, and just thought what should I doe with these?
First thing I did was to find the perfect printed paper that would look great with my photos, and that of course was the Abbey Road line, from Bo Bunny......and again I might add, one of my favorite scrapbook suppliers. So off to my friends Melissa scrapping garage to start creating.
I started with a couple of ideas and changed my mind, so into my stash I went to see what I coud find. What I found was this cute little chipboard tag mini book I purchased from Michael's @ the $1.00 spot. The project took me about 2 hours to complete, andI love the simplicity of how the mini book came out.

I hope you like my creation......have an awesome day everyone.

If Only Dreams Can Come True....

I dont ask for much, but I do have my dreams, just like everyone else does. But my dreams are never ending.... they consist of having a job I love, to create, inspire, teach.....and get paid for doing it. Many of you who have known me forever know that I LOVE SCRAPPING, and if you have to ask me for suggestions and ideas, be prepared because I am full of them. As a matter of fact, I am mentally creating right now in my head. Am I crazy? Or do I need AA classes for scrapaholics?
But guess what? I wont give up on my dreams......there is a job out there for me, I can feel it. I just need to find it, or it me.
Again the card I am posting is from the Be loved line from my previous post. Aren't the colors beautiful? But I can't help but feel like there is something missing, I just cant put my finger on it yet. Knowing me, I will probaly wake up in the middle of the night when it hits me, and will want to get up to add it to give it that finishing touch.....LOL. But hubby will be non to happy if he catches me scrapping in the wee hours, as he has many of nights.

everyone wants to BE LOVED......

I love this line from My Minds Eye called.... Be Loved. It went well with these pretty flowers from Prima that I found in my local Michael's craft store. I have been using my Fiskars scissors so much lately which gives my cards a deckle edge, a look that I have favored so much lately.

I have always layered my printed paper, trying to bring each paper in the collection together. My all time favorite color to scrap with is the color brown. I love how it looks with pink, light blue, green, and cream. I hope you like this card. Have a great week everyone......BBS
