My Great Great Grandfathers Hat

This is my youngest grandchild Colby.  He found a hat that belong to my grandfather who was born in 1904. He passed away in 1986 but my grandmother is still with us today.  She is 100 years old!! Wow!!  He loves this hat plus he was eating a chocolate cookie and it seems he left a lot of it on his face!  

I used various papers - front and back - plus distress it and then inked.  I added a clock and took inks and added brown and blue.  I found various other items in my stash and brought it all together.

Here is a close up of the various items that I used.  I had a light bulb that I have had for about 6 years and thought it would work on this layout.  It is amazing what I find when I start looking around!

Here are the flowers that I used.  The top blue one needed a center and looking through my stash I found this cute little monkey button.  LOL  So, I placed it there!

Please see below the list of items that I used:

BoBunny - C'Est La Vie Colleciton - Decoupage Paper
BoBunny - C'Est La Vie Collection - Creme De La Creme Paper
Melissa Francis - Dotted Draft Paper
Maya Roads - Large Alphabet Letters, Crochet Flowers

At The Park

I love this photo of Colby at the Park.  His mother took this photo one day while the weather was warm outside.  One never knows if it will be hot or cold here in Texas.  I used Melissa Francis as the background paper and My Mind's Eye and Glitz papers.  I layered this layout a lot which it was rather fun to create.

As you can see on this there are several layers - the corregated cardstock, and papers plus the photo.  I then added the chipboard from Fabscrap.

Here is the lower right corner which I added flowers and I printed out leaves and cut them out.  One of the flowers I found a bumble bee and glued that into the center of the flower.

This is the top left corner of the layout.  I have several layers and added a burlap bow, inked the photo, and added the tags that say Park!  This layout took my about 2 hours from start to finish.  It was so much fun!

Here is the list of items that I used:

Melissa Francis - Paper
My Mind's Eye - Paper
Glitz - Paper
Melissa Francis - Bicycle & Green Map of streets
Burlap Ribbon - TCS
Maya Roads - Tags
Prima - Flowers
Corregated Chipboard
Tim Holtz - Distress Ink - Vintage Photo

Thank you for looking!

Lets Cook

Isn't she cute!!!  This is my granddaughter Kenzie and she was in the kitchen with her mom cooking.  Of course she had on her little hat and apron.  I used Moxxie paper "Joy of Baking" for the background and found this cute red and white paper from ... A Boy's Life".  Go figure!!  Anyway, I cut out the red and white paper and then inked it in brown and I also have a small punch (the curly q) and punched around the paper.  I then cut smaller papers out and then added this photo.  I used ribbon, flowers, and little hearts and cookie cutters.  I have a tea pot stamp which I stamped it out 3 times and then added it to the top of the page.

Here is a closer look at the different layering that I did.
