Frozen 49 and 50

I've made it to fifty layouts without buying any scrap supplies except for adhesive, and adhesive is okay because you can't scrap without it.

I didn't think I'd make it this far without shopping. Fifty more to go, and I can shop again. I better hurry and get done because yard sale season is coming, and it is my weakness.

Layout #50 is my son, Matthew, on his boogie board. My grandson, Sean, is also pictured in this.
 The flowers were cut from patterened paper. I added pop dots, glitter glue and rhinestones.
 The title it old Thickers with a coating of glitter glue.
 This part of the title is foam from the dollar spot with a coating of glitter glue.

 Layout #49 are pictures taken at the top of Diamond Head - worth every step of the climb.
The title is inked stickers and chipboard.
The flowers are Cricut.

Frozen 48

Another two page layout. I really struggle with them but sometimes I don't want to crop the photos, so they need two pages. I have pictures that I took from the top of Diamond Head and will make those into another two page layout.

 All the flowers were cut from patterned paper. The A sides of paper are really good for embellishments.

 Still more letter stickers that don't stick with added bling.

Frozen 46 and 47

I am enjoying working on pictures from Hawaii. I love being there.

This is James's family, Elaina, Aliese, Sean, and Xander. Of the course the picture I liked the most had Aliese doing rabbit ears to Xander. Oh well, it shows them how they are. I wished I lived in Hawaii with them - I miss those grandbabies - and my children as well. :)
The title is some horrible sticker letters that do not stick. It bugs me when scrap products don't do what they say they will.

 The kids came to our hotel and went out on Waikiki Beach. There were some pretty big waves and one grabbed them at the shore line and rolled them in the sand. Aliese got the worst of it and was a bit startled. They were ready to head to the hotel pool after this.
 Aliese in her sandy glory. She was such a good sport although a few tears were shed.
 The flowers are painted chipboard with button centers.
 The title is a combination of stickers (that stick) and rubons.

Frozen 44 and 45

129 sheets of paper later, I have completed 45 layouts.

This is my grandson, Sean, at Bellows on Oahu. He is the sweetest little boy - so loving. The flowers were cut from patterned paper, and I added glitter glue to the centers.
 I've gotten a lot of titles from this one set of thickers. I am running out of any letters that can be Frankensteined into what I need.
 Close up of the flowers.

Elaina, Sean's mom, taught Matthew how to boogie board. The pictures were taken from the beach when the daylight was fading, so they are not the best, but I love the look on Matt's face when he catches that first wave. He's up! She is a patient teacher. Some of the shells on this are from the North shore. The pictures are from Bellows on Oahu.
I saved the center button of the large flower forever, and liked it enough with this layout to finally use it.

Yes, that is a Jolee's starfish sticker.

Frozen 42 and 43

I made one of these for Matt's book and one for Aliese's. They were so proud of themselves for making it through the world's biggest maze all by themselves. All of the flowers were cut from patterned paper.

Frozen 40 and 41

I spent some time on this layout playing with paints, chalks, and stencils. This is me after my graduation in 2010.

These are pictures of my son and my grandson. James is in the U.S.A.F., so we don't get to see him very often. I used two sheets of paper and scraps on this one. I cut the houses from a 6X6 paper pad and double stacked them with pop-dots.

I have used 111 sheets of paper creating 41 layouts. 59 more layouts to go.

Frozen 38 and 39

I have two layouts to share this week. They are both two pagers, and can I just tell you how much I don't like to create two page layouts. My creativity gets stiffled.

 The Cricut came to the rescue for embellishments on this page.

 This one has hidden journaling about my education process.
