Well Hello there! I realized it has been awhile since I have posted anything, so here are a few layouts I've been working on lately........Click on any photo to enlarge it for detail!

First up - a simple layout with a custom element curtesy of my Silhouette! I welded the fire border download with my text, and voila - instant embellishment! Paper is Creative Memories.
Next is my super cute Kindergarten grad and don't you just love the new Sizzix airplane/sign border die! It might be my new favorite. The font is QK Chicken Noodle and I also used the QK Schoolhouse and cloud border die here. I ran the schoolhouse roof through a cuttlebug mesh embossing folder to give it a cobblestone roof look. Background Paper is from Archivers but I'm not sure what brand.

Ok, here is a favorite layout but I couldn't get a good picture of it - it is better in person but you get the idea. Totally an 'everyday' layout! I used the QK Washer/Dryer die, along with the Clothspin die and Marigold font (for boys - life with was cut on my Silhouette). Paper is Me & My Big Ideas (I think).
Totally love that I can weld and shadow titles on my Silhouette. Here I used a true type font called Black Rose, and just welded and shadowed it. Paper is Sassafras Lass. Also used the QK Heart border.
Ah, some oldie but goodie photos from the dating phase. I used the QK Cityscape border, along with Diesel classic alpha and the vacation phrase die (for adventure). Paper is Creative Memories.
Thanks for looking! I'll try to post more often!!
