Tannis created another fabulous layout using some of the paper from our Feb kit!

  The typewriter and number rub-ons are from Studio Calico and are in the store right now, the flower is made out of the "FabRips" from their line as well!

Thanks for sharing Tannis!
I hope you feel inspired!

who would have thought we would scrapbook about technology! Tannis D created this awesome layout of her daughter and her newest obsession.  Using photoshop, she used an overlay on the actual photos to give the layout a real vintage look!  It looks so great Tannis!!!

I hope you feel inspired!!

a little something called "TRUST"

This picture has been hanging around for a while, it needed to be on it's own, as the title simply explains "Trust" was indeed what was happening here as Dain jumped off the rock into the water.
Don't you just love it when a picture means alot to you personally - photos bring us back to moments...

I hope you feel inspired!

a scraplift...

I do it too, I get inspired from a photo, someone's blog, a magazine...I look at my stuff, and create something close, not exact but close....  I saw this photo on the cover of this magazine

and then I had these really great HUGE bottle - caps from Maya Road here at the store and have been wanting to use them for a while...

and I think the paper that was used was absolutely adorable, and what do you know, we had it in the store:-)

So I came up with this...

close, but not quite, with my own spin on it!  The rub-on snowflake by Basic Grey went on surprisingly well onto the metal!  I held the metal bottle-cap onto my page with glue dots.  Now to find some bright and cheery pics to add to it!

I hope you feel inspired!
