Sweet Gracie Layouts



A couple of layouts I completed with Kim Higueria’s Sweet Gracie Kit. I don’t usually go for the girly kits but this is a gorgeous one.
I even managed to get a layout of me done. The photo was taken at Mother’s Day 2006 while we spent time with Rowyn and Andrea in White Rock, BC.

The picture of Rowyn was taken this summer at Ambleside Beach. We were there flying kites. We had a great time and I have to admit it was the first time I flew a kite. Now I have to say that was pretty cool.

Thanksgiving with a Friend

We decided to spend Canadian Thanksgiving with my friend Joanne in northern Washington. We went to Lake Whatcom Falls and it was a gorgeous fall day to take some photos.

Misty’s New Layered Templates



3 Layouts I did using the new templates. I love templates, it is so easy to make a layout using them.

The kits I used are all from Scrapbook Elements
Imagine Spring, Shades of Blue and Garden Blends.

Happy Fall

I was reading a thread over at Split Coast Stampers about layered templates. They are all the rage these days and I have the good fortune to use the ones that Misty Cato designs. I am also loving the freebies that are posted and have used them as well. I sometimes feel so uncreative and the templates are so nice for the inspiration and the quickness of using them (well sometimes, it still takes me forever to get one done.)

I decided to try my hand at making a very simple one and posted it to the forum at Split Coast Stampers. I used the foundation for the card challenge at Split Coast and built on that.

Below is the thumbnail for the template I designed.

Here is the template in use:

New Hair Cut

Journaling reads:
Isak waited for some time before he decided to get his hair cut. He had said he wanted to let his bangs grow but changed his mind. He was quite happy he did it. Not so hard to keep.
