FISH

This is a simple layout.  By making the title black and the background light it keeps the focus on the important parts of the layout.

Supplies used: CTMH Discovery papers and cardstock (Buttercup, Hollyhock, and Topiary), MM chipboard letters and black paint, and unknown stickers.

Como Park

These layouts are from pictures taken in the flower garden at Como Park in St. Paul, MN.  They also have a zoo and a great amusement park (Como Town) for kids.  I highly recommend checking this out if you are visiting the area and would also suggest signing up for their newsletter prior to your visit to watch for specials.  My kids (ages 7 & 9 at the time) had a blast!

Supplies used: CTMH Whoops-A-Daisy paper, CTMH Watermelon, White Daisy, and Hydrangea cardstock, Pressed Petals Chip Chatter letters (sanded), fasteners, and gemstone brads from the Target Dollar Spot.  Layouts were inspired by sketches from the CTMH Cherish book.

Just Add Water

Using both the positive and negative parts of chipboard letters doubles the possibilities!  Chipboard is by Provo Craft, other products used are unknown.

3rd Grade Baby Shower

Imagine the fun time we had when the 3rd graders had a baby shower for their teacher.  I laughed as I watched the boys get shy (or not shy!) as their cute teacher gave them a hug as a thank you for gifts.  And of course we had to play the dirty diaper game where they tried to guess the candy bar inside!

Supplies used: flowers unknown, all other supplies by CTMH: Let’s Get Together paper, Colonial White, Garden Green, and Cranberry cardstock, Cranberry ink, B1288 Solo 3 stamp set, and D1222 Tiny Typewriter Alphabet stamp set.  Layout inspired by CTMH Imagine book.

A Pirates Life…

I just love this picture of my nephew saying “Arrrgg!”  All embellishments were obtained through a swap.  Papers by CTMH.
