Looking at You

There is just something so enjoyable about taking pictures of animals.  Every time I go to the zoo I end up with countless animal pictures.  These are my favorites from the Seattle Zoo last August.  It was hard to narrow it down to just these!

This week’s sketch from Let’s Capture Our Memories is actually a card sketch. I took the card sketch and changed it up to a 12x12 layout.

Adore You (digital layout for Mye De Leon CT) and a card too

I have been loving all of the re-releases at Pixels & Company from Mye De Leon.  When I saw this kit, I knew I wanted to make some digital layouts and some hybrid projects too.  Normally I don’t usually use templates, but I decided to give them a try since Mye De Leon has some really cute sets.

Beauty in Nature layout

I couldn’t wait to dig into my three warehouse boxes from Webster’s Pages for this layout.  The other thing that I have been loving lately are this large background patterns from the Silhouette Store.  This is one of the reasons why I really wanted to upgrade to a Cameo.

I Love You More (a digi layout)

I really love how this digital layout turned out!  What is even more surprising for me is that fact that I only used one kit to create this layout.  That doesn’t usually happen that way for me.  I love to mix and match various kits when I scrapbook.

I Love You More Each and Every Day That Passes

Sketch: Ann for Sketches: Creatively Yours. Digital Kit: Summer Girl (discontinued).
