Hanging by the pool with Nana

Abigail is getting pretty curious around the little pool on Nana's deck, but she rarely goes in it.  She just likes to sit by and watch Rachel splash around.  Every once in a while she'll go in, but likes to play on her chair instead.

Back to School layout

I took the summer off from posting so I could focus on spending as much time as possible with my favourite peeps - Jamie, Rachel and Abigail.  We did so much and had a fantastic time.  It's so sad that the summer is over.  It's hard to believe that Rachel is now in Senior Kindergarten - here's a layout of her first day back to class.

Have a wonderful day, Alesha 

walk in the woods

This layout was supposed to be for a blog hop sketch a while back, but I wasn't able to get them submitted on time.  I still love the layout though - and I was able to get ten photos on a page!  
Have a fantastic day,

MDS blog hop - I'm a cheater, I didn't do the theme!


It's Friday!  That means that it's the day for the My Digital Studio Blog Hop!  Now, I completely cheated and didn't follow the theme this week.  Abigail is turning one - ONE - next Friday so I've been working like mad to get her 1st year album finished.  This is another layout - any suggestions for a title?

MDS blog hop - all Green for St. Patricks day!


It's Friday!  That means that it's the day for the My Digital Studio Blog Hop!  I was thrilled to see that this week's theme was to use the colour green.  I was originally going to do a nature layout, but I chose to do something bold instead.  Sorry that it's a day late, we were out of town and I didn't realize that I pre-programmed the post to come out on the incorrect date.

MDS blog hop using a fantastic sketch!


It's Friday!  That means that it's the day for the My Digital Studio Blog Hop!  I was thrilled to see that this week's theme was based on a sketch.  I love working off templates and this one was fun!  Heather chose it and this is what I made with it:

MDS blog hop - it's all about Babies! Blue and pink galore!


Welcome to our BABY!!! My Digital Studio Blog Hop!  Today we're showing off projects with a baby theme.  I took some photos of Abigail just as she was waking up in the morning.  She wasn't too impressed but I love the pics because this is always how she looks in the morning - a little dreamy and dazed.  Now, honestly I really don't care for the layout that I did this week.  I kept altering it and altering it.  Different papers and different embellishments.  This is the combo that I liked best, but it's still not complete.  What would you change about it?

Simple Snapshops scrapbook page - baby's first cheerios

I took these photos a while ago and finally found a layout that I liked that suited them.  Abigail is a cheerio monster and just loves eating them up (and feeding them to me) but it took her quite a while to figure out how to actually get them into her mouth.  These photos were taken when she succeeded!  Now, she's a pro.

Papers: all of the papers on this layout are from the "Simple Snapshots" cd
Embellishments: All are from the "Simple snapshots" cd

Scrapbook layout with earthy green tones & the "Leaves of a Tree" stamp

The wintergreen designer papers make great earth tones!
Leaves of a Tree $4.95
This was a fun layout to make.  I am in love with the "Leaves of a Tree" stamp - I think that it's awesome and versatile and I'll be using it a lot!   On this layout I used the main stamp in white, but I set the opacity to 80% because I found it to be too bright when I left it at 100%.  I placed a 100% white bird in front of it and I love the way it just pops off the page.  All of the designer papers from this layout are from the "Wintergreen" designer papers and the tags are all from the "Limited Edition" embellishments.

Guess what I did today?

Scrapbook layout using "2011 Notable Desktop" designer papers
 Well, not much honestly.  Abigail is sick, Rachel is sick, Jamie is sick, and yep, I'm sick.  There's something going around at work, at the kid's daycare and I knew that it was just a matter of time before we got it.  I haaaa-aaa-aaate being sick.  But, I did get a lot of time on the couch under a blanket today - so I snuggled up with some movies, cheesy soap operas, and ate lots of soup.  That, and I became reacquainted with my laptop.  I managed to get a ton of my Project 365 photos into scrapbook layouts (Yes, I'm still taking photos daily, just got behind scrapping them). 


Jamie was the sweetest and bought me a beautiful and huge bouquet of red roses, stargazer lillies and carnations.  I've never seen anything like it - he went all out and I love it.  Oh how I wish I could smell it.  I hope that you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Double layout using the "Love Letters" designer papers

I had to snap a bunch of photos of Rachie in her Valentine dress since she was in a mood to pose for the camera.  Four years olds can be so unpredictable sometimes!  I love the layout of this spread and think it will be fantastic when I print it.  I just got my 5th album back this week and love it - it was the album for October, November and December 2011.  I plan to have another one printed at the end of March which will have all of my layouts from Jan, Feb and March 2012.  I am aiming to do one for each season of the year.  Some of the albums I've printed have 150 pages and others have 30 - if just depends on how many photos I took that season and whether I was able to scrap them.  I think that if I just set the goal of printing an album each season it will motivate me to keep on top of my scrapping.

Something fun I like to do with Digital Scrapping

Don't you just love that layout?  Something fun that I like to do with digital scrapbooking is to google search awesome scrapbook pages and completely copy them.  It's such an easy way to scrapbook.... and I can change it up to fit my photos.  This was a layout that I copied and it took about 6 minutes to do.  If I was traditional scrapping I bet that it would have taken that long just to die cut the letters.


Recipe for this layout:
Papers: Piece of Cake CD, Twitterpated kit
Stamps: Kindred Spirits
Accessories: Cherry Cobbler designer brads, stitching
Punches: Timeless Type Junior alphabet, Hugs & Kisses punch


Have a wonderful day, Alesha 

MDS Blog hop - designer templates and the smitten alphabet


Welcome to our Designer Template My Digital Studio Blog Hop!  I stumbled upon the template below when I was looking for 8x8 templates that I could convert to 12x12 for my next book.  I only changed the small print text and then inserted a photo - I love how pretty this pre-made template is.  This template is included when you purchase the "smitten alphabet" punches.

This next template comes from the "Twitterpated" kit.  I love it too.  Now, I just have to figure out which of these I will use for my album.  I love the photos a lot, but I just don't know which layouts to choose to print.
