Family, time well spent

Family memories, this is what I love the most about Scrapbooking, it's all about taking the time to highlight our many family moments. Last year we went on a family trip to Boston and we enjoyed a great meal in a Mexican restaurant. We had fun with the pictures by pretending the boys were having beers. 
My inspiration for this page came from the sketch challenge at Scrapaux puces. I had fun playing with my new papers from 7 dots studio and added gelatos to the background to highlight the colors in the pictures. I love working with the gelatos, the colors are so rich and how they blend is just magical.
Again, a perfect touch to my page, my friend Caroline's badge @Cutz2Luv.
Here is the sketch that was proposed for the challenge:
Oh how I enjoy the time with my family... Wishing you and your loved ones a wonderful day.


Trick or Treat

Ok so I am mentally preparing for my oldest son to turn 18 at the end of the month and let's just says I can't believe how fast time has passed. So of course, I am going through some old photo albums, trying to believe they were once my babies. Found this perfect 1st Halloween picture that I just had to add to my lot of scrapbook pages.
SO I actually had tons of old craft paper and halloween stuff lying around in my stash. I can't even remember when I purchased most of this stuff, but at some point it's got to get used so I dove in.
The paper collection is from My Mind's eye and dates back to 2009 (don't say it, I know I am a scrapbooking hoarder). Some embelishements are from Little Yellow Bicycle, flowers from Prima. Probable the only thing you can get in 2015 is the Cuts2Luv button & the Creative embellishment die-cut.
Here is a closer look at the Cuts2Luv button (it's so cute) and the Creative Embelishment die-cut #CUTE:
I am including this page in this month's Creative Embelishment's challenge. Now they are saking, what was the inspiration form their challenge, my response is simple: The colors & the pumpkin in the image.
I am aslo including this page for the Scrapauxpuces October moodboard Challenge, here it is:
To add a touch of shimmer, I added some touches of the Prima Finnabair Texture Paste, Loved how it came out. I added it over my Creative Embellishment #cute and also directly on my paper. First time using and and I can't wait to use it again. Just sold to the Finnabair line.

Ok, now off to new projects, wishing you a great day!


Cuts2Luv October challenge

It's official, I am out of my scrapbooking crafty funk. After many months of avoiding my paper crafts, I have started playing around in my craft room again. It felt good.
So to get me going, a challenge is always good, here is this months challenge at Cuts2Luv.
On my part I was inspired by the color combo and the sketch.
This picture was taken at the Universal Studios Harry Potter park, it's with the driver of the Magical bus. What can I say, I am a die hard Harry Potter fan.
Here is the combo challenge file:
Have a great day !!!
