Handsome - Pixels and Paper January DT reveal

Greetings everyone!!! Hope you had a great holiday week!!! How are you all doing?? I am super excited to share with you my take on Pixels and Papers January's reveal. I was inspired by the rainbow smear across her face and all the colours. I used a variety of tim holtz distress paint, lindy's stampgang starbursts and smooch spritz. I am super happy with how this layout turned out!!

Here is this month's inspiration:

Twist this month is to have paint on your project!! Hope you can play along this month at Pixels and Paper, you have until the end of the month to link up your project:

6x6 album - grandparents present

First project to share with you tonight is a 6x6 mini album (12 pages), that I finished last night for my son's grandparents (my in-laws) as part of their Christmas gift. I was quite sneaky with these photos and explained to my mil that I needed any photos she had of kyle because I was working on his yearly album and wanted to use all photos of him and I used all the photos she sent me and created this album (hehehehe so sneaky sneaky).

You are awesome: my own design

'Twas the night before - Let's Scrap December 1 DT reveal (457-458/365)

Good morning everyone, it's December 1st which means sketch reveals day at Let's Scrap!! Here is today's wonderful sketch:
 And my take:

I stayed pretty true to the sketch; however instead of twine, I used washi tape, used some mist as well as added extra embellies. I decided to go with a Christmas theme for a couple of reasons 1) to get me in the Christmas spirt and 2) i found that these photos really worked well with the sketch.

Thank you for stopping by and for your wonderful comments, hope you can play along this month for a chance to win a great prize from our wonderful sponsor Craft Classes online

Cookies for Santa - Pixels and Paper December DT reveal (456/365)

Hello everyone and welcome to December!!! Is anyone else rushing to get Christmas presents ready?? I make every single gift so I usually start in September but this year I have been a little busier with work and lots of friends having babies (aka scrapbook albums) so I am rushing like mad to get everything done so it was nice to slow down and get some scrapping done for myself and work on this month's Pixels and Paper Design Team reveal, this month is a fun Christmasy themed:

Here is my take, I was inspired by the red/green/and white as well as the cookies with the Christmas theme:

I misted the background with Lindy's stamp gang rudolph's nose, and cut the title with my silhouette. The embellies are all buttons that I cut the back off of. I filled in the tree with liquid pearls.

Thank you for stopping by and for your wonderful comments, hope you can play along with us at Pixels and Paper this month for your chance at a great prize!!!

Tractor baby album (436-455/365)

Last to share with you tonight is a tractor baby album that I made as a surprise big brother present. As you may (or may not) remember, I made a zoo album for my dear friend Danielle a couple of weeks ago (but gave it to her at this morning's 4-way shower). I was debating what to make/get for her older son, Ben, and then she asked if she could hire me to make her a tractor-themed baby album for her son. I had a lightbulb moment and told I didn't have time to make it until after Christmas but that then we could sit down and go over papers/embellies/etc and she was excited about that. Well I was up until 230am friday and got up again at 630 saturday morning in order to get this album done (really hate thyroid problems and illnesses). I am so happy with how the album turned out and hopes she likes it as much as I do!!!
