While the family is a way, Mom scrapbooks all day!
Kevin needed to go to the Santa Cruz area for business so, he decided to take Ryan,Kenny and Stacey with. The kids were able to go to a cool Skate park and to the beach and just spend some one on one time with their dad.. I know they have a good time together. Jennifer and I stayed at home and she watched a lot of episodes of "So you think you can dance?" (what else do teenagers do?) she did help me with some chores. I scrapbooked, art project, etc.. We had a good time just being at home..
I haven't made cards in a while so, I just decided to "Go for it".. I used papers, rub-ons, distress ink, flowers, rhinestones, cardboard flourishes, lace.. I think it turned out pretty good..
This is a layout of Jennifer who is 15 in the picture. She is 16 now. I have a tendency to add a lot to my pages.. I think it is my way of incorporating all my other special vintage stuff.. I sewed ribbon to the page, a little "bling" "say it with crystals", vintage flowers some I had and some I purchase in a kit from "Artsy
Mama", glitter, vintage jewelry, felt bird, cardboard flourishes etc..
This layout is of my daughter Stacey, who is 18 now and only 6 in the picture.
I cut 2" strips of coordinating paper, added felt flower strip, bling, flowers, ribbon, vinyl rub-ons, etc... 3 of my kids were gone a few days this week so, I
stayed in my creating room and made a huge mess (I wish I took a picture of it..)
I literally got everything out and ended up sitting on the floor while putting stuff
together. I made a few more things but, I will share that later... Hope you have an enjoyable weekend...
