A pretty mess

This page is pretty messy.  Sequins and flowers everywhere!  And that is just what my dinning room table looked like after our crafty time,  so I figured it was perfect!
I found a fun kit by Lauren Grier at Sweet shoppe Design.  It is called #happy and it has so many fun happy elements!













Here is my sketch.  Its a fun one when you have a lot of photos.  Think of the other possibilities besides flowers.   Have a beach page to do? use some waves or fishies instead of sequins and flowers. Or leaves for a fall page, snowflakes for a winter page, you get the idea.










Here is the #happy kit I used.  You can get it here.    
It was on sale a while ago for $4.79 but I am not sure how long that sale is on.  Regular price is $7.99 which I think is still a good deal, there are 18 papers and a ton of embellishments.  Perfect for my Happy little daughter!

Lucky Day

Hello everyone.  I have a cute page today of  my son Zachary.  He found a four leaf clover while playing in the yard and he was just so happy.  He came running into the house shouting "MOM, MOM!" and I was worried something bad happened but his smile assured me this was not the case.  We pressed the clover in a book and will check it in a few weeks, maybe we will make it into a book mark. 






Here is the sketch. My page was super simple because it was a template from My Digital Studio, but since that is no longer available I created a simple sketch page for you to follow.














Thanks for stopping by!!

Step by step ~ progressive page!

This is a fun way to show a progression of photos.  Here is my little Zachary working on a school project.  He loved making his penguin.  I let him do it all by himself.  This was an assignment in his preschool class.  We were given a recipe for homemade dough and were supposed to create an arctic animal.  When I first learned of this assignment I thought it was a little crazy for preschoolers but he had a lot of fun and I think it looked really good. 







Here is the sketch.  I hope you have fun with it.  you can show a step by step of a daily routine, or the making of a favorite recipe. There are so many possibilities.

First Recital ~ Fun chalkboard frames

Hello everyone.  I found a fun download of frames that I just had to have.  I think chalkboard elements are so fun, and I know they have been around for a while but I seem to be drawn to them all the time.  Maybe its because I have three children and they are fun for kid pages.  This collection of frames was part of a download called Di's Doodling Frames #1.     There are 75 frames in all.  Chalkboard, cardboard, grid paper and stamps.  Really fun! They have 6 pages for inspiration too.   I had a lot of photos of Jillian's first recital so I made a two page spread this time.







An easy way to make your page into a two-page spread is to "insert a duplicate page".  You can see this option at the top editing bar in both MDS and MMS.  You can insert a mirrored page as I did for my pages, or you can insert an exact duplicate.  Then you can change the pictures in the frames and move things around as you like. This way you don't have to recreate your embellishments and all the backgrounds.







Here is the sketch...
I hope you find some digi inspiration today.  If you would like to share what you did with this sketch you can attach a link in the comments section or add your page to my Facebook page.



Here is the frame collection. 
It was $3.99














I thought this was an interesting way to use the frames.  You could print them out onto paper and use them in fun ways like art journaling or cards.  I see some framed cards in my near future!
