Since my mom always has her cards up for months, I decided to give her a little something that won't be outdated on fathers day! I used a 6x12 canvas, and patterned papers from Reminisce In Bloom collection. Cover the front of canvas using Colors of Spring, paper punch strips of Power of Flowers and creasing them to wrap around to the back of the canvas. I used Beacons 3 in 1 for adhesive, then I cut 2-'M's out on the cricut utilizing the shadow feature. Then I fussy cut two alike flowers flowers from The Power of Flowers, gave them texture by dry embossing, a little ink, tied a knot in the end of some twine, put through the flower center and I had a O. Die cut a butterfly and fussy cut a lavender flower from Colors of Spring for a little more dimension a beautiful poem a few embellishments and something my mom can enjoy for a long time!!

I would like to introduce my niece Guinivere, shortened to Guin. She had a wonderful time at the park with the Bunny! The Bunny and grass areas are 3D, you can't really see that in the picture but it made a big difference in the finished layout. When the Bunny and grass were just paper the layout looked top heavy and I didn't want to remove the trim. I used some smooch, stickles and gel pens on the flowers and eggs!
The last item I have to share with you today is a gift bag. This is another fun and easy project, I traced a gift bag template, (I had to add some cardstock to the bottom of the Easter paper so that I would have flaps to fold for the bottom of the bag) then I cut out another Bunny, (just his hands and head) and used pop dots to attach him. Then painted some chipboard banners, cut the sticker sayings apart so they made statements about the egg hunt, used smooch on some thin dowels to put it them all together.
Keep watching I have a two page layout idea using more of the wonderful Easter items from Reminisce!!

Being in the spotlight, I turned this Reminisce paper upside down! This mini album cover started out as a birthday card, it was too cute not to make into an album to hold all those pictures from the circus!! I used canvas painted red and white then pieced into a big top. Enjoy!

I couldn't figure out how to write something new on my blog, needless to say I will not be remembered for my computer skills!
Summer is here, softball is in full swing, summer camp is on the calendar. Sometimes I have to look at my calendar a couple times a day to make sure the kids are where they need to be! Thank goodness I have a retreat at the scrapbook store, I can go have some quiet creative time or chit-chat with friends.
My family and I went camping over Memorial Day, as always a bitter-sweet holiday, remembering the fallen and being grateful to those that serve our Country.
I am going to share a couple more Reminisce layouts I have completed, hopefully I remember how!!
