My poor wounded boy...

This is Elijah.  My accident prone 3 year old.  We are constantly treating bruised knees, scraped palms, and other mishaps. This one took place when he fell of his tricycle and planted his face in the ground.  The injury was not really that bad, but of course we needed a band-aid for each tiny scrape.

Here is the layout I made, using Sassafras Lass and some mists and such.
Tomorrow is a fun day for me... but more about that tomorrow!  See you then.

Getting Even More Progressive...

Not politically, of course, just in a scrappy sense!  This month for Your Scrapbook Stash, the team divided up to being you 3 progressive layouts.  One of those groups was Heidi Kelley and myself...  so we got the chance to do our 3rd progressive layout together.  This one I started, and Heidi finished.

Here is what I sent her:

And here is the finished layout:

We used October Afternoon paper, Punky Sprouts canvas, and lots of buttons.  Get what you need in the YSS store today!

I just LOVE how Heidi finished this layout! The way she altered the buttons, and made this so FUN is just genius.

Thanks for coming by!

Play. Recharge. Repeat.

I made this layout with a combination of October Afternoon and Crate Paper.  I just love combining different looks and lines to make a unique layout.  A little mist, some fun papers, and you have a totally unique look.  Everything you need is in the Your Scrapbook Stash store right now, so get out there and mix it up.  :)

This photo is of my children, eating their lunch on the swing set platform.  It was a brief "recharging" in the middle of a summertime play session.  Missing summer already...

Stash to Treasure Class Previews

Here is what is coming up at Stash to Treasure!

In November, Jamie Dougherty will be teaching a 6 layouts, 1 page kit class.  The kits will be available soon, and will have a very low price point. You will be able to get the kits and follow along as Jamie makes 6 layouts from one kit, and shows you how to do the same.  Or, if you prefer, you can take the class without the kit for just $5 and use Jamie's tips and tricks to build 6 layouts from your own stash!  You can see more about this class and see Jamie's blog HERE.  Kits will be in the YSS store SOON!

In December, Lesley Langdon and Kinsey Wilson are teaching together, and they are bringing us a fantastic December Daily Class.  Want to see how two very talented ladies work with the same kit to create two very fun and very different December Daily Albums?  This is your class.  Kits for this class will be available in the store soon, so that you have time to get yours and get ready for this class with plenty of time to spare.  With two teachers teaming up, you can be SURE this class will be loaded with incredible ideas!

More details and kit photos for both of these classes will be available soon!

Just a quick card I made for Prima in honor of World Cardmaking Day!  I adore Prima packaging, so this card was made by punching holes in two pieces of packaging, and lacing them together with ribbon.  :)
