October 2013 MemoryWorks Express Kit Projects

I got to play with the Express Kit this month...I made 2 layouts, 4 cards, and included in the kit was a little clipboard to alter. It is filled with fun stuff from Teresa Collins, and My Mind's Eye; and has super fun embellishments like glazed brads, beautiful ribbon, binder clips, and shipping tags....which I think are always an excellent addition.

A Recent Layout

Hi! Just sharing a random page that I recently finished.  I'm forever trying to catch up in the kids' personal albums, right now I'm working on Owen's from....2010. Yep, I'll probably never be current.  I've been playing recently with the Playtime kit from Craft Junction.

It has a lot of Echo Park goodies in it, which I love.  The photos on this page are of Owen and Oliver together, I usually include photos with more than one child in each of their albums.  I've already done pages with these photos for Oliver's 2 year book, but I like this one better. Anyway, these pictures are several years old...and Oliver has Cheetos all over his face :)


They look so little :)

Oh, and if you're in the area, you won't want to miss this going on today....

Oskar's 3 Year Pictures

I take pictures of all the kids right around their birthday, and Oskar's was on the 12th.  I was starting to panic when the weather cooled down so fast...that I was going to miss my opportunity to get his in.  Luckily yesterday's weather was beautiful, so we walked down to the park for a little photo shoot.

Being a typical 3 year old, he was not cooperating at all for his pictures. So, when he reached in his pocket to find Lego Superman...I just went with it.

Needless to say...he was sooo excited with his find....

...and he talked about how cool it was that he found Superman in his pocket.

The pictures became all about Lego Superman after that...

Here's my favorite....

He may not be smiling, but at least he's not crying :)  Notice, he still has Superman in his grips....

Thanks for looking!

Bella Blvd Monday Morning Challenge

***If you're looking for the MemoryWorks Fall Blog Hop post go HERE.***

Welcome to the Monday Morning Challenge! The challenge was to use the Trick or Treat collection to create everyday layouts and cards.  It's always fun to use holiday and/or themed collections for other things than their intended purpose as there are so many pieces that can fit into our everyday photos and memories.

The Candy Factory:

Trick or Treat: No Brainer, Leaf Storm, Spooky Town, Daily Details, Paper Pieces, Tabs, Alpha+Bits; High Five Alpha Stickers: Black-White; Designer Tape: Polka Dot Combo, Chevron Combo, Yellow Chevron

Any good Halloween collection has to have embellishments about candy!  That's one reason why I think the Trick or Treat collection worked for this non-Halloween themed layout. The other reason being the mix of super fun colors, they enhance the wall of candy bins perfectly.

Be sure to check out the Bella Blvd Studio Blog, to see all of the great projects made for this challenge.
