More Photography

Well of course I couldn't leave katelynne out of the photo play today!!!

A little photography play

Tonight I got to go out and take photos of my friend who is due to have her baby any day now! She is probably the prettiest person I know- pregnant or not, which makes me look like a great photographer- all she has to do is smile and it's perfect :)

I played around with the photos in photoshop, so here's a peek at some of the things we came up with! I can't wait to scrapbook a few pages for her with these!

SSsssnakes!, Wedding Cake, and Smiles

I just wanted to share this page today! It is yet another one of my layouts where I used a circle template to create a "window" effect. I just can't get enough of it :) This page is about one day this spring when Lucas found a HUGE earthworm in his sandbox and he called it a snake! He played with it forever, once he tried to throw it at me EWwwww! It seems like my scrappin style has been leaning toward the more simple lately, maybe I have just been staring at pages overloaded with prima's and embellies too long??
Here's a page for Katelynne- again with the circles!
And last but not least- my wedding cake album for Ebay. It was due to be listed LAST week, but welll..... let's just say I got a little bit busy!
And one final new pic of Katelynne- I want to make a page with this photo and title it "Pretty in Pink". I have so many pictures of her that I can't wait to scrap! Everytime I take her shopping she gets compliments EVERYWHERE, even when I am changing her diaper in the bathroom LOL! One day when we were out at lunch an old lady even came over and told me that she reminded her of a doll she had at home and had been given to her 78 years ago!

What a Hoot 12x12 Page

So about an hour ago in my post I said "hope to post something scrappy soon", well after that I went upstairs and took the layout I had made to sell and put some photos on it! I just started thinking how much I liked it and how it probably wouldn't sell since it didn't have a sickeningly cute tear bear on it, and I had the perfect photos of katelynne!

I used the K&Co Berry Sweet papers and embellishments, plus one of the new templates to make the circles, I am loving this technique of punching out the circles on the page and then making a sort of "window" by putting another piece of cardstock behind the page.

You can expect to see a mini album made from this paper coming from me soon :)

Here's a close up of the circle technique I was talking about- it's the perfect use for your Big Bite Cropodile!

Love the wiggle eyes on this own!

Baby Shower

I am still slacking on keeping this blog of mine updated!!

Last week I hosted a baby shower for my friend Ashley- she is having a boy in just a few weeks! I am so excited for her, we have been friends since we were little kids and she is the first one of my close friends to have a baby, I am looking forward to us being able to share the experience of raising our little ones together!

Here is a pic of the diaper cake I made her and the rag quilt I made to match the baby's nursery- Atlanta Braves!

And here's a pic of Ashley and Me holding Katelynne

Hope to be posting some scrappy things on here soon :)
