crop results ....

It is soooo hot in my house i can barely function ... the storm on Saturday was a brilliant bit of relief from the heat, but it brought with it a whole lot of humidity ... I think I will be hanging out in my basement today doing laundry ... at least it is kinda cool there ... and oh yeah, did i mention that's where my scrap room is??? It might just be a whole lot of fun!

Speaking of cropping ... i did manage to get one layout complete during the POTP crop, mostly I worked on my mini album ...until i did a page that just didnt work ... it was a photo transfer accident ... so I am taking a break from it till i decide how i want to approach that page.

anyways, here's my new page and three others that i had in various stages of completion, they are all done now!


Okay, so I used this paper twice ... I love this piece of paper from the Collage Press Knave of Hearts collection ... I am guessing I will use it again, at least one more time :) Hey its my darling Queen of Cupcakes ... trust DD and I to head off to the Caribbean Festival and of all things find cupcakes!!! She had Chocolate coconut and I had mango, and they were delicious!!! Check out The Crazy Cake Lady to get some, by the way, CCL is a Crop 4 Kids sponsor ... so share the love!!!


Yes I am using a Nick Gilder song title, (I am just disregarding the rest of Nick Gilder's lyrics when it comes to this layout) ... but I did think the title went really well with this overexposed shot ... This layout is for my Songbook Project .... I totally love music and I find I get a lot of inspiration from music when I scrap, so I am doing an album with my music inspried layouts ....


So you all know my Divine Miss H is not the tough thug type ... but earlier this year, as a training exercise, her camp leader group had to pull "characters" from a hat and come the following day as that character ... So here is my little baby thug! Love that whole fake tatoo on her neck ... I got some great shots of her, but this one was fuzzy ... but i like her tough expression the best on this one ... that and the fact that the printer ran out of ink midway through ... In reality her bandanna is baby blue and she is wearing a spiderman touque, so she really didn't look so tough :)



More Collage Press, only this time I used Sweet Shoppe ... and love those Tim Holtz fragments ... yup, same cupcake, same Caribbean fest ... Hayley : "Did we buy these as photo props or do I actually get to eat mine???" This from the girl that took over 300 pictures at the aquarium :)

As always ... thanks for stopping by!
