My Diva!

Diva's don't always need to be girls... just ask my son!

Over at SOS, this Monday's challenge was to do a l/o inspired by a piece of clothing... Well, my ds did a photo shoot with a buddie, and I love the colors in the photo, so I thought I would scrap this! I made the overlay all by myself... I traced a shape on a transparency, inked the edges with a small flourish stamp, cut it out, and voila!!

This was from back in the day, where we were waiting anxiously to open presents!
Looking back at this, I hope my 2 sons realize how spoiled rotten they are with the "LOADS" of stuff they get!

Lovin' this one of Stuart being a typical 14 3/4 year old teenager at our soccer pool party!

some random layouts for August....

This was me at 3ish, riding my new bike! I wonder what ever happened to it???

Sisterhood of Scrap

This week's challenge was for the DT to come up with a l/o inspired by food. I had this awesome photo from Cairo of a cart olding bananas sitting in front of a clay medallion shop, and I couldn't resist!

Inspired Blueprints

I love the inspiration I get from the sketches at Inspired Blueprints! They have a new sketch on the 1st and 15th of every month... Here are my 2 for August, the last layouts I need to do for my son's graduation.

It has been a very hectic week at home, and I thought I would have got the chance yesterday or today to catch up on my blog... but.... Stuart has developed some horrible looking hives, and I have been up with him this past 48 hrs! We just came back from ER as the hives were getting worse! He is now on a steroid for the next 5 days, and is sleeping at the moment! I will get to the blog later in the week... I am off for a much needed nap!

cool idea...

What a cool idea I had today after seeing a tutorial by Ingrid on SOS! Making your own pins! I ran out to Michael's a purchased a few things, and made this pin to attach to a l/o I was working on.... Cool or what!
