Limited Edition Kit - My Creative Scrapbook

My Creative Scrapbook's May Limited Edition kit is another stunner! It is just filled packed with Fancy Pants Road Show including several beautiful transparencies, one of which is flocked! This kit has my all time favourite Prima flowers. The small pink ones and the beautiful whispy aqua ones. Ah but if only it was a magic kit and each time I reached in the bag more flowers would keep appearing :D

34: yip, that's my age *sigh* ..it's creeping up there now. DH, Larissa and Keaton baked me a cake for my birthday. I had to hide out upstairs (in my scraproom of course) while they baked it. It was fun to hear the kids impatiently waiting for it to cool down so it could be iced....and so it was iced while it was still a little too warm. LOL We had to light the candles several times so they could take turns blowing them out.

I left parts of the transparency without any backing so it is see-through which looks really cool when holding it up around a window... doesn't really show up in the album too well though.

Sleeping Beauty: This is Missy Rissy after a hard day's play. About once or twice a week she falls asleep in the car on the way home from daycare. I carry her in from the car and lay her down on the couch. When her Daddy gets home from work, he carries her up the stairs and she sleeps through right to the next morning. Yes, that about 13 hours sleep. She has always been a really good sleeper and now that she doesn't nap she seems to need a couple early evenings like this to catch up on zzzzzz's.

and a little tip for you....

It's really easy to create a lacey paper ruffle border for your layouts. First, cut 1" strips from pattern paper. I used the Martha Stewart doily punch here. After the strip was all punched, I accordion folded the entire strip. This is a really forgiving technique so you don't have to be overly fussy or even. Unfold the paper and adhere your lace paper to the layout. I used hot glue to attach the paper ruffle to the back of my layout.

The greatest of these is love: This is another page for the wedding album that I am creating for my brother and his beautiful wife. I am slowing picking away at getting this done but I need pick up the pace a little since they will be coming home for a visit in about 6 weeks!

And lastly, a little card that I made to have on hand for a wedding. I used some glimmer mist up in the corner and used a doily as a mask.

Now hopefully this is the last post where my white backgrounds aren't really white in my photos. I'm sure you have noticed how they are blue-ish or grey.... well one of my lovely sisters has promised to show me how to make them look proper white with a little photoshop trick. I am anxious to learn this because the not-really-white white has been driving me crazy!
