A Truckload of Layouts

For the Friday Lift challenge @ Pixel Canvas from Romy's gorgeous and funny page, Sitting Tight. This is precious little nephew Erik, and let me tell you, he doesn't sit still often!

Everything mine @ Pixel Canvas. Background paper from Industrious (Remix), bottom swirl & brown paper from Nautica, swirl behind the frame & feather from Delicacies, and patterned paper from Tangled Twirls. Font: XBand Rough.


After I finished uploading the layout, I realized these shots were SOOC (straight out of the camera)--guess my new camera is working ok, eh? Gotta love that "auto" setting... *rolls eyes at self*

Everything from Pixel Canvas. Background from ScrapOriginals, This Year. Masks for both pictures from Vinnie Pearce's new Photo Texture Masks 2. Stitching & silver flower from Little Fireman; blue flower from School Days. Font: Handscript Upright. "You, and I, the ocean, the sun: a perfect day."
Everything by Vinnie Pearce @ Pixel Canvas. Template is from the new Give Me Simple Templates 06. Background is a blend of a paper from the Grunge Plaid paper pack and Art Corner 3 papers; I used several more of those for the other 2 blocks and the leaf. Fonts: Architecture & Loved by the King. "Nature embraces us at all times--We have but to open our eyes to it."

Everything mine from Pixel Canvas. Frame from Framed 2, all the rest from Darling. Font: Minya Nouvelle.
Everything from my new kit Darling @ Pixel Canvas. My honey and I!
Have a great day!

D Is For Dog

Our goofy puppy on the beach this afternoon... Everything mine @ Pixel Canvas. Frame from Framed 2 (coming!), heart from Tangled Twirls, shell from Stone & Lace, and everything else from Industrious (Remix). Font: Memorandum. Journaling reads: "Tillicum Beach, 01.10: Tycho discovers digging, then tests his superpowers trying to see underground and breathing in sand. How’s that working for ya, bud?"

Frames & Grunge: New @ Pixel Canvas!

Frames! Bent, shadowed, big, small--fun to play with! Framed 1 @ Pixel Canvas:

And Industrious (Remix)--full of cool embellishments, its very own font, tons of textures, and lots of large brushes (and a seriously fun overlay that just wouldn't fit in the preview):

The kit is on sale till Saturday, too!

Layout Catch-Up

This new year is all one big jumble! Here are a few layouts...

From Florida (and eeks, I so need to do more pages on this!):

For the Friday Lift @ Pixel Canvas, of JustJen's beautiful "Me".

Everything by Vinnie Pearce @ Pixel Canvas. The backbone of the layout comes from her recent Layered Mask freebie, which includes the pearlized doodle. I added a brush from Pieces of Me III, butterflies from Love You, the space shuttle from Travel Chic, and the grass from Old Things. All the rest is photos and blending. Font: Ghostwriter.

My beautiful boy...

Everything by Vinnie Pearce @ Pixel Canvas. Background papers from Pieces of Me 3, clipped to a paper from Crumpled & Stitched Templates (that's where the stitches come from). Wordart from Love You, and all other embellishments from Bloom.

Allen and his 1st electric train--which he got to set up with his buddy! Color him ecstatic (both of them, actually)!

Everything by Vinnie Pearce @ Pixel Canvas. Background is a blend of White Foundations 2 and Pieces of Me 3: Art Papers. I also used a border from Film Bits, distressed with her Distressed Brushes No. 03. Fonts: Carbon Copy (title) and 1942 Report.

Grandpa, Grandma (from different sides of the family), sister, cousin, second cousins, various inlaws... we had a really good week's worth of reconnecting over the holidays!

Credits: Everything from Scrap Originals @ Pixel Canvas. Most everything from the This Year kit, but the flower & flair button from Summer's Edge. Fonts: Kolker Brush and E820-Deco. (All the frames are mine, though).

Guess who we welcomed into our house today...

Tycho is a Golden Retriever, 13 weeks old, and surprisingly smart: he's already learned which rooms not to go into, how to sit, how to walk on the leash--of course, we'll have to see if he remembers all this after his "nap." "Nap" because really it's a total puppy pass-out:

We're thrilled! He's so sweet...
