Close To My Heart Digital LOs

Here is a Layout I created using Studio J by CTMH. It's from my Neice's 1st birthday LAST year. Yes, I am so far behind....

And here are some Wedding Layouts I created using Studio J as well

I had so much fun making these and it took no time at all! To learn more about Studio J, just press the icon on my sidebar. It's totally FREE to try!
Until next time, Happy Scrappin!

My Wedding Inspired Mosaic Art piece.

Holy smokes it's been a year since I last posted. I haven't really done all that much either LOL!
Here are some more Wedding Layouts I have done for my friend's album. I am finally finished it and remembered to take pictures of them all.
This frist layout started as an idea in my head. This is my favorite couple picture of Jody and Gord. When I first saw it, I knew I wanted to do a mosaic of sort around it. It it me a loooong time to do. First off, I sketched out a couple of ideas on paper and started to collect the mosaic pieces. I purchased them all at Michael's. Since they were quite expensive ($5.99) I used a 40% off weekly coupon to buy most of them, so it took a few months to get them all. I think I used 10 packs.

I am entering this LO in the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss-Holiday Challenge- Include a Sunny Scene
Creatalicious Challenges- Anything Goes

Crystal Stickers Mosaics by Mark Richards in Many colours
Background paper- Cloud 9 Designs ( I think I've had this paper in my stash for 10 years)
CTMH Pacifica CS.
Stickles to fill in some spaces between mosaic pieces.

Hope you'll stop by again to see more wedding layouts.....
Happy Scrappin!

The Making of a Princess

Happy Sunday everyone. It is over-cast here. Not like yesterday which was scorching and was spent outside. Got a lot of weeds pulled in my flower beds. They are coming together nicely. I stopped by Extra Foods to look at their annuals. Poor pathetic looking plants. They are long past due for a transplanting. I didn`t pick any up however since it was just William and I with his wagon. Picked up some really cute "CARS" gardening gloves for William though.

On to my Layouts. This is another layout from my 20 page workshop. I took the time this morning to take pics of all of the dominican ones I have finished so far. Hopefully William will let me get a few posted. We`ll see....

The Making of a Princess:
Materials Used were.....
 Close To My Heart: Magnifique PP and Stckease, Clear Sparkles, Spray Pen with Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint and Chocolate, Lagoon re-inkers.
Making Memories: "Making" letters
Cricut: for all the rest of the letters

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Scrapping.
