Day at the museum

My best laid  plans to blog more are still only plans. Life is getting in the way and I almost lost my laptop this weekend. It works now but doesn't have a battery. I have several projects to share but I will start with one layout and one card.

I used a sketch from My Mind's Eye blog for this layout together with lots of My Mind's Eye products from different collections. The pictures are from our trip to Milwaukee Art Museum last November. I still had the ticket stubs from the visit and I added them to the layout. The circle flowers are handcut from the paper and layered with pop-dots. I added two shipping tags as a base for the title. Another everyday memory had been scrapped and found it's place in my albums.

Supplies: patterned paper (MME), buttons (MME), die-cut border (MME), letter stickers (October Afternoon), shipping tags

Here is more My Mind's Eye, this time I used the card sketch and the Life Stories collection. I was looking at this card for very long time, felling like I need to add something but couldn't figure it out. Eventually I just left it as is. Any suggestions?

Supplies: patterned paper (MME), ink (Colorbox), die and diecut machine (Lifestyle Crafts), stickers (Bella Blvd.), twine (Making Memories)

I like the look of the twine wrapped around the circles. So glad I bought this die! Tomorrow is the last day to enter the week 7 Lifestyle Crafts giveaway. The winner will get a $500 shopping spree to Lifestyle Crafts! I think I could handle it LOL 

We have one week of school left. It is going to be a busy week with an ice skating exhibition, choir concert and Hanukkah events. I think my motto for this week will be "less stress, more fun". I will let you know how it worked :)

  1. Love your scrapbooking pages and the cards ..... you've done a great job. I'd hate my laptop to not be working properly ... that would be a disaster.
