Wearing Wild Flowers

I love, love these little photos of my granddaughter Kenzie.  She really does not like to have her hair done but I convinced her to please let me braid her hair and then pin it up with little daisies!  Well, that got her attention and I was able to take these cute little photos.  However, it was only short lived for she wanted her hair down afterwards!!  LOL  But isn't she a cutie?!!

I loved these main paper which is by Webster's which I thoroughly LOVE their papers!!  I distress the pages and added ink to them.  On the main paper I did stitch it in a zig zag!  I personally felt that not much needed to be added except for the silver corners and little buttons!  The flowers are by Prima!  I added this little saying "Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair..." by Susan Polis Shutz.  It just sums it all up!

Dance Dance Dance

This is my sweet little granddaughter Paityn.  She loves for me to put her hair into little braids.  We were outside and she was dancing and twirling so I quickly grabbed my camera!  She really loves for me to take photos of her.  I have these gorgeous pages and I wish I knew who made them but I was so busy creating that I must have thrown away the little part that tells you who made it.  Except for the bouquet of flowers on the left side I know that Websters made that page.  I cut out flowers, cut a circle, distressed the edges, inked, and add a lot of embellishments.

I was given this cute little mini album from The Crafty Scrapper and the Design Team.  It is so tiny and cute and we were asked to create something and use our own supplies.  Well, I thought a moment and decided to create a mini album on my 4 grandchildren.  This album in about 4" wide and 2-3/4" tall which is very small.  I chose a quote that says "Grandchildren are the flowers in the garden of life."  I love that!  I added Prima flowers and used stickles to make it glisten!

I LOVE this sweet poem about grandchildren.  I do not know who created it but it is so lovely.  The photo is my first grandchild Logan.  I used scraps of paper (wish I knew who made it) and inked and added stickles.  The flowers are by Prima except for t he white one which is by Maya Roads.  The blue rose lace or ribbon is by Maya Roads as well.  

Here is the today photo of Logan at age 12.  This is his first day of school in Houston.  I really miss this boy a lot!!!  I am so use to picking him up everyday after school and keeping him until his mother gets off work.  But, they moved on to Houston and things are going very well with them.  The bottom photo is my granddaughter Kenzie when she was born.  She was so tiny.  You can tell by her holding on to both of her parents fingers!!  I used various papers and stickles.  I also used Prima flowers and leaf plus stick pins by Maya Roads.

This is Kenzie today.  I had pinned her hair up and she was glad to let me take her photo.  The bottom photo is my other granddaughter Paityn.  She is so asleep and what a sweet little baby girl.  I used stickles, paper, and the orange flowers is from Maya Roads and I am not sure who made the white little daisies.  I added pink stone to each one and not sure who made those either.  I have had both for awhile.

This is Paityn today.  She is a little doll.  She really loves to dress up and she even allowed me to take this sweet photo.  The bottom photo is my youngest grandson Colby.  He was so tiny he could fit in this basket.  I used various papers, stickles, and Prima flowers.

This is my sweet grandson Colby today at 15 months.  I do keep him nearly everyday so his parents can go to work.  He is such a little pleasure to have around.  The bottom photo is all my sweetie pies!  I love each and everyone of them!

Childhood Memories

My cute little granddaughter Paityn!  She was 10 months old when this photo was taken.  On the back (on the bottom area) of this little outfit it says My First Christmas!  I did this layout for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.  I really love the papers and all the embellishments that was given to me.  The paper I used for the background is one that I had from last year. It is made by the same company as all the other papers. I did a lot of cutting out, inking, etc.

This is a close up of the floral arrangement.  I used the clock and inked it and added the ribbon.  I found a Christmas brad that I have had for years to the center of the clock.

I love this quote "Our hearts grow tender with Childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time.  I really like Laura Ingalls Wilder.  I tore, inked and added dots to the back to lift it up from the paper.  I then cut out holly and did the same thing which I then added two little bells.

On this part of the layout I was given snowflakes from Maya Roads.  I painted them with a light blue acrylic paint and then let them dry completely.  I added from flocking powder to make it look like it had some snow.

Here are the list of items that I used:

Authentic - Anticipation Paper
Authentic - Believe Paper
Authentic - Jolly Paper
Authentic - Yuletide Paper

I love this photo of my grandson Logan.  It was taken last year on Halloween.  I did this layout for the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper.  I used everything that was given to me.  I did a lot of inking, stamping, sewing, etc.

Here is a close up of some detailed work that I created on this layout.  The branch is by Maya Roads which I painted black.  Then I added Flocking Powder (Snow).  Once that dried I added a little green and orange acrylic paint.  Once that dried completely I added Glossy Accents.  It gives is a creepy look.  On the large orange flower I added by Liquitex - Modeling Paste and then added a touch of green and black to age the look of the flower.  If you notice by the branch I used a mask by Crafty Workshop Stars which I added the modeling paste.  Once it dried completely I added Brilliant Yellow acrylic paint to some of the starts.

Here is a list of items that I used:
