 If you read my blog last week you may remember me mentionning that a friend of mine challenged me to create a layout about how my youngest daughter looks so much like me.  I had a idea of making a layout with both of our kindergarden class pictures.  So as i was looking through past pictures of myself and of my girls I could not help but have a smile on my face.  Happy memories all around.  Here is what I created
 Using the same Basic Grey collection I created this layout of me at my grandparent's house at my second birthday.  I have such fond memories of that house and the view we had from that window. 

And again from the same collection I made the following layout.  I was excited to see that the background paper was vintage map of the Maritimes in french!  I could not cover it up so I used a collage from Basic Grey's Clippings and added a picture of my handsome husband taken during our trip to NY last year.  A very easy layout but I love it!

Now let's see what I can create with the rest of the collection pack.  :)

Reliving Christmas

First of all Happy New Year!!!  I took some time off from everything suring the holidays and it was quite refreshing.  I'm only now getting in the routine of things again now that school, daycare, gymnastics and swim classes all started again.  I had even taken a break from scrapbooking!  Lukily
I had the chance to scrap with a group of very special scrappy friends to help me get into the swing ot things again.  It felt so good to sit around a table and just talk and scrap. We even took a break to drool over some of the reveals that were posted during the CHA.  It motivated me to start using my stash and create to make room for all the goodies I'm going to need.
I then relived Christmas sifting through the picture that were taken during the holidays. Here are some of the layout I was able to complete :

My first layout if inspired by Isabelle Doucette's LCOM sketch #1.  I used some older Basic Grey.  It seemed like the perfect paper to showcase a couple of BFFs with their matching dresses.

The next 2 layouts feature pictures taken at my parent's house. The second one only has CTMH products.  I love the glitter alphas and the matching chipboard die cut stickers.  The fist one uses paper from the same collection but I embelished it by using a Bo Bunny blossom,  Prima chipboard and accent flowers, Thickers as well as some trim from Webster's pages
The girls taking a TV break waiting for everyone to be ready to open the presents.  they were so patient and I just had to take a picture of this moment of calm before the storm of wrapping paper that was about to hit.  I used the Gorgeous Serenade collection by Basic Grey as the base for this layout along with Kaisercraft bling and Prima flowers
Thanks for looking!
