For those of you who missed my earlier post, I am a fairly new quilter, having only machine sewed a few quilt tops at this point. I am now a member of the Manitoba Prairie Quilters, a fantastic group of very talented women who share their knowledge and provide me with tons of inspiration! This year we are hosting a Quilt Show at CanadInns Polo Park on April 9, 10, and 11 which I will not be able to attend because I am in Gimli that weekend scrapbooking with Kim's Scrappin' Studio! But I wanted to participate somehow, so I am donating this basket valued at over $200 for the Choice Auction. If you want to win it, go check out the quilt show - there are beautiful quilts on display, the auction, a boutique where our members are selling handmade items, a couple of vendors, and raffles. I also have tickets for the quilt raffle ("Bali Sea Star" 60 x 71" valued at $695) if anyone is interested. Good Luck!!!

These are the last of the graduation photos, and they use some of the same papers as the other grad layouts posted. I had 8 x 10's done on sale and then hated to not use them! Then there is the layout of my birthday....I am not happy with it but I did use some old paper from my stash. It came from a Paper Pizazz paper pack that I bought a few years ago. Had to have it at the time, now I look at it and wonder what I am going to use it for! LOL

Aaaack! I can't believe it has been over two weeks since my last post! I am such a slacker these days! I finally finished doing my son's graduation photos....I had made a 9 x 9 album for him to have, but put off doing the layouts for the "family" album for some reason! It's only been about two years! Some of the paper I used is from a Rhonna Farrer paper pad, but as for the other supplies.....??? There's a Jolee's sticker on there, some vellum phrases from Studio K Quotable Notables, Scenic Route border sticker and chipboard, chipboard letters from Maya Road, rub-ons, bazzill card stock. Thanks for lookin'!

Time to get caught up with these posts! Here we are into March, and I am still trying to get my February layouts posted! This is one I had started awhile ago, in my pile of layouts needing some finishing touches from the crop in January! This paper is really old, not sure how long it's been in my stash! The chipboard trees, snowflake, joy, photo anchors, holly, etc. are all from Kelly Panacci I think! I loved that package and used a lot of it on this layout.
This is an old photo of my mom and her sisters that didn't quite go with this paper until I printed it in black and white - thanks for the challenge Erin! Paper is from the Veranda collection from Close To My Heart, title was cut using Cricut "Calligraphy" cartridge. Stamped images come from CTMH My Acrylix "Soul Mate". Paper flower was made using Stampin' Up Scalloped Circle punch and the border was punched with Fiskars Threading Water punch. Man, I use that one a lot!! Ink colour used is Cocoa from CTMH. Simple layout, but I really like it.
