Fun Problem to Have

So, I've got a little bit of a fun dilemma - all the good scrapbooking things going on in my little part of the world are all being revealed at the same time!!! And I don't want to give any of them less credit than they deserve because the people I have had the honor to work with are all fantastic! So, I guess I will be sharing one reveal today and one tomorrow.

I'm going to start with Let's Capture Our Memories since I worked on my blog that is currently up over a week ago (yes, for once I got something completed well in advance of the deadline!). This month I am having an extraordinarily fun time playing with Pink Paislee Hometown Summer papers I got from the LCOM Store!

This layout stars my favorite niece, Audrey, sharing a drink with her BFF, Lillian (hence the title). What cuties, and the picture was absolutely perfect for the fun, bright PP papers!

I really enjoyed creating the flowers for this layout, too!

Normally, I will use a flower punch or fussy cut flowers from paper (or use pre-made, store bought flowers), but when I saw this VERY SIMPLE flower-making technique in a recent scrapbooking magazine, I just had to try it. Am I glad I did! It's very easy, and I think the result is fantastic! All you do is punch out eight small to medium circles. You fold seven of them into a "V" shape and then adhere the seven folded circles onto the eighth one. You top it off with a button or, in my case, a brad.

To get more details about the papers I used and for more close ups, head over to the LCOM BLOG! I'll be playing with more of the Pink Paislee papers and blogging for LCOM again on the 23rd and 30th (my birthday), so stay tuned...

And...just because I am so very far behind on posting here, I have included another layout, this time using scrumptiously beautiful papers by Glitz Design that I purchased at the LCOM store!

Seriously, the Glitz papers were almost TOO PRETTY to cut!!! I used a sketch to create my layout, which was designed by my wonderfully talented friend, ALDA. She's got some seriously cool sketches which she reveals on Mondays, so please go check those out and be sure to leave her (and her new design team) some love!

Until tomorrow...


  1. Great layouts, love how they are so different but both so pretty!

  2. Oh, these are so pretty! very very nice lay outs. I love the blue and the peaches in the second one with the horses.

  3. amazing! love them both, but the second one is specially gorgeus!

  4. Your LOs are always so much fun to look at!

  5. BTW, I assume I have permission to post your BFF LO on my blog... I don't? Oh, well, you can spank me later ;)
