Its All Good Layout for Lasting Memories #664

My scrappy mojo is slowly returning, so I whipped up a layout for Lasting Memories Challenge #664 using the sketch picked out by Design Team member Lori. I had two photos of the cupcakes I decorated for my daughter's cat party showing the very rough design and the much better final design of the cupcakes, so I used them with some cat themed papers and embellishments. If you would like to join in the fun over at Lasting Memories for this or any of our other sketches, click on the link above to see the sketches and link up your layouts by September 2nd.

March Madness Layout

 August has been a busy month for me with a family vacation and getting ready for another year of homeschooling, so I have had a hard time getting creative with my scrapbooking. The same photos have been lying on my desk for several weeks, waiting to be scrapped, but I finally found some mojo this week thanks to a few scrappy challenges, so here is my layout at last! Fittingly, the title reflects the topic of the layout: the busyness of March 2017.

All the butterflies and some of the flowers started out white, and since I had lots of fun coloring them, I wanted to share a few extra shots of them so you can see how pretty the colors are:

Laughing Lola, Splendor & March/April Mix-Ins paper packs
