new layouts

So i was able to move my scrappy stuff all into my new craft room (pics to follow as soon as i have it finished). i am so pleased with the layouts i managed to do this weekend. Here are three and i will post the 4th soon as it is part of the inspiration for the girls over at APOS.

this first is a layout of our trip this summer to Greenwich, PEI. it was a fantastic day and this is the first of many layouts if am sure from that day. i used the Tim Holtz paper and the papers are made out of grunge paper which i used in my sizzix. i was so thrilled it worked!! i coloured them with distress inks and glue dotted them on. the letters are one of the first titles i cut out of my new Expressions Cricut which arrived on Thursday. it is blue and very very beautiful. We also got the 'Your Story' but have yet to even open up the instruction booklet to see what we need to do to use that.

 this second layout here is the run we did in Saint John in July this year. it is the first of three years we have committed to. it was a 'fun run' through green space in Saint John, NB. It has a bad reputation, Saint John that is, for being smelly and dirty but i have to tell you this was a very scenic wonderful run. So the bib is the actual bib from that day. one is suppose to plant it when the run is done but i always keep my bibs. this one happened to rip and become tattered during this run as it misted for the most of it. Once again, tim Holtz papers.

 And the final layout posting today is a pic of my brother in law, Harrison, he is not quite two. we were over visiting in July and i was able to take a few, okay about 250 photos of him that day and have found it really hard to pic only a few to scrap. i chose this one as it is totally adorable of him. So techniques i used in this one would be the Heidi Swapp ghost letters. i turned them over and painted them with three different paint colours, glimmer misted the white flower and of course, on every layout i do, i used distress ink to mess it up a little tiny bit!

that is it for me tonight. i do hope to hear from you all soon but in the meantime, HAPPY SCRAPPING!!!
