Go for the Grid with Go! Fight! Win!

It’s almost time for Friday Night Lights!  I have to say–I honestly miss sitting on the bleachers each and every Friday night.  It was a ritual, and each and every week I took my camera along with me.  You just never know what shot or accomplishment you might miss if you don’t have it.  If you are like me, you take hundreds of photos of your kids playing sports.

Sports photos tend to get a little busy, with a lot going on in them.  I was trying to find a way to showcase the many photos on my layout, but not making it a clustered mess.  Then it dawned on me—CLEAN lines.  So, I went with the grid concept.

Not only is this grid layout great for sports, but any other occasion that you have many photos from.  A family event, perhaps?  We would love to see your grid layout on social media by using #creativememories.

Our Life At The Lake

Summer is my favourite time of the year and I seem to wish the days away all spring to get to the cottage again!  Morning coffee on the deck,  lazy afternoons on the beach, snacks and refreshments on the boat and smores by the campfire are a few of the things we love.  Oh yeah… and taking photos of all of these wonderful memories!

Slice of Summer Digital Kit is perfect for our memories at the lake!  The colours and the embellishments work fantastic!

Where does time go?

It is so hard to believe that we are talking about sending the littles (or bigs in my case) back to school already.  Where does the summer go?

Make sure you capture all of the special moments when you are sending them back to learn.  Their grade, the books they like to read, their teacher, their shoe size, their favorite color, etc.

The Bookworm Collection is a fabulous pairing to any layout related to school.

My Little Artist

Hello everybody! I am back with a layout I created using the Bookworm Designer Papers, embellishments and stickers. What a cute collection to scrapbook those school memories!

Every time my son comes home from school with a fun art project, I get excited. I love looking through his artwork and the one thing I can always count on while looking at his work, is that his little creatures are ALWAYS happy. This makes my heart happy. It just goes to show that he’s happy inside and out most days. And he’s so creative too.

I love that he enjoys simple things such as painting, drawing and coloring. He will spend hours at the kitchen table, making pictures for his classmates. He is thoughtful like that.

Love Mix & Match Border

Love is…..Love.

I love to drink my coffee first thing in the morning.  I love my sons humor.  I love spending my spare time scrapbooking.  I love meatballs and mashed potatoes.  I love smelling the scent of ocean air.  We can LOVE just about anything.

However, what I really LOVE about this scrapbooking border is that I was able to use the Jumbo Jet Border Maker Cartridge in a very non-traditional way.  In fact, I bet when you look at this border, you didn’t even know the Jumbo Jet cartridge was used.  And, better yet—you can use this on just about any layout about many forms of LOVE!

Love Your Life

Isn’t life beautiful?

There are so many days that I just have to step back and remind myself how beautiful this life we live really is.  Take a deep breath, and take in all the sights, sounds, smells, and people around me.

By snapping a few photos of these things, is a wonderful reminder to LOVE LIFE!  Today I challenge you to snap at least two photos of the things that will remind you to do this. Once you have these photos, add them to a layout! Throw a few flowers on there for the beauty-factor!

Send A Note To Say Hello

I always have my Creative Memories goodies all packed and ready to go with me. Currently,  I am spending my days in our RV out of town while my hubby works.  I love the versatility of Creative Memories products, everything you need to make amazing layouts and cards are at your fingertips.  I do have a well stocked craft studio in my home but I don’t like hauling all my goodies with me.  Everything I need to create can be found with Creative Memories products!

I don’t know about you, but I love to make and send cards to loved ones to hopefully brighten their day.  I do not have a stash of cards here in the RV so I decided to make this set of four note cards just to have on hand.
