Soccer time...

here is an idea for a Soccer layout just in case you are snapping away on the soccer field these days (I know I am:-)
  Using Bo-Bunny's Blast Off!  (I did a tonne of Boy pages with this line!)

I hope you feel inspired:-)

More Crate paper fun...

now time to play with Toy Box - such great Boy paper and colors, I always have so much fun on Boy pages, I don't know why? Sometimes I almost find them easier than girly pages... here are some layouts using this line!

seriously I have had these 2 photos printed out and waiting to be scrapped for 4 years!!! this line was perfect and so were the Chipboard stickers! I used Crate's label & border stickers, their paper, their brads &  some 7Gypsies gears.  I can finally add this page to Dain's album - sometimes you just have to wait for the perfect paper line - isn't that just crazy!!

This picture was from last summer, my nephew Carter got this little car for his 3rd birthday, and I took this pic of him giving Aubrey and his sister Tiana a ride! Everytime I looked at the picture, this Beatles song popped in my head!!

so that was the inspiration for this layout:-)

and here is just one more simple layout with Toy Box

I hope you feel inspired:-)

Some Crate paper fun...

Sometime we just gotta scraplift!  I tell you, I usually feel quite inspired but I constant look at magazines for ideas, I love all this paper but struggle with some lines and what to do with it - I am sure you have felt that way too!  So when this adorable line came in by Crate Paper - Neighborhood, I loved it so much - but really didn't know what to do....soo off to the Crate Paper Blog I went in search of inspiration...and this is what I came up with...

These are QUITE similar to what I found on their Blog, but I loved the layouts so much why not "Scraplift!"
We don't need to re-invent the wheel everytime, the amazing thing about this hobby is that we are able to share ideas and inspiration, after all,  it is supposed to be a fun hobby- not stressful!

I hope you feel inspired:-)

Disney Fun:-)

so from May 7th-the 14th we were in the Wonderful World of Disney - we took our Daughter who turned 4 in March - for the 1st time:-)  Dain and I have been there the same number of times before,this was our 3rd!!
Well she is a girl who LOVES to nap, so I knew it would be a little challenging, but she did just fine - we have at least 1 MAJOR meltdown a day...but I was expecting that! And besides the fact that she got "Pink-eye" while we were there, we had an amazing time! Here are just a few snapshots of our adventures... (all off of my Cyber-shot as I broke the lens off of my NIKON the day after we got home!!) 

 Looks like I need to do another album:-) Aubrey is so funny though, in preparation for this trip she repeatedly looked at the album from Dain's 1st time going, and she asked me "mommy will I be in the pictures next time?" that is just the sweetest thing! She she already picked her Disney album - it's Blue (her favorite color right now)

and she has been picking stickers as they come into the store...I guess I better get started!
here are 2 more pics...

these will definitely make it onto a page and I already know what it will say

 "there is tired...and then there is Disney-tired"

I hope you feel inspired!

I hope you feel inspired!
