new work - part 2 - pic heavy

(last year's photos...though she is still just as attached. lol)

(the butterfly thingy says "in the air" but it shows up better in person than on camera




(I can't take credit for the decorations...my sister made them for my niece's 6th birthday and she didn't want to throw them out so she asked if we wanted to do a carnival at daycare lol)
And thank you Gwen! I got the idea for this from your birthday layout for Jordyn which rocked by the way Biggrin

another amazing thread???

1. Where did you get that robot paper?? It's adorable!! I love "boy" finds like that.

2. The paper with the sky matches the theme perfectly. Great page!

3. This is one of my all-time faves of yours', if not my fave. You are so creative to use the paint strip to tie the whole theme together and you never run out of clever titles!!!

4. Again, how do you think up such cute titles for these pages?!? Guess I know who I'm going to ask next time I run into a mind block. "grape bunch"!! LOVE this! Did you hand-cut the grapes out?

5. Ahhhhhh, that's so sweet! Wayne is going to make the BEST daddy!! Just like you're gonna make the best momma!

6. Great idea cutting out the Cricut products for this page.

7. OMG, this is stunning! Everything about this is just beautiful. Are you giving this to Wayne as an Valentine present?

8. Can you just move to Texas already? Ok? Wink Your daycare is so fantastic it's hard to believe. There is NO where like that around here. Carnival Day? You guys are just too much. You have some very lucky little kids that go there. This is tooooo cute!

My favorite is the love is in the air one, what a beautiful and romantic LO.

That carnival double LO turned out really nice too, you included a lot and it still looks unlcuttered. Love the title with the banner.

Charys - Michaels sells the robot paper, I got some myself it is so cute!

Oh my! You have been so busy! I can't get over how many great pages there are here. I love your use of circles with the portraits of the kids. I love the touch page about the girl who adores Wayne. I love that you did a page about the two of you - so sweet and the colors a beatiful.

So much fun to look at these! Smile

These papers are beautiful that you've used. Those carnival flags are really cute...that LO is really nice. I like how you've used two different color papers for the backgrounds of side by side LOs - I always wonder if that is okay, and now I see that it is!

TFS!

thank you everyone! You girls are too sweet! To answer a few questions, let's see...I did cut the grapes out by hand yep...then stuck them to white paper and cut around it...I laughed my head off when Wayne came in to see the page I was working on...he goes "how the heck did you manage to find that white shape to fit the background perfectly??!" AHAHAhaha...men...

I'm not giving that page to Wayne as a Valentine's present but I showed him when I was finished and I thought he would call it cheesey but he said "aww that's lovely." LOL! I think my scrapbooking is softening him! :eek: Don't tell him I told you! lol

I got the grape title off a website AGES ago which I kept meaning to use on something...it wasn't a scrapbooking thing...it was from a Sunday School bulletin board if I remember correctly. Smile
Oh and I recently found this site (hope I can post links here!) about scrapbooking titles...I think it's fab!!

Anyway, thanks again! Love you girls Biggrin

Scrapbooking has softened Scott too I think. Wink We just won't let them know that we know that. hehe! That's a cute response he gave you. I just love that layout.

Holy moley chickie, you've been smokin hot and busy! I love that you scrap about your daycare kids, they must love to see your pages! And I literally laughed out loud with the Cricut page (just because I 'get' it lol). You have a great knack for titles & words!

Another GREAT bunch of layouts. You've got some great patterned paper on some of those. I love the paper on the 'It's all relative one' super cute. Man oh man I wish I could rock my layouts out the way you do yours.
