What's Up, Wednesday?

Hi.  It is Leah Larson.  I get to fill you in on what is going on in my world.  Have you ever been asked "How often do you scrapbook?"  Well I would love to be able to scrap every day but we all live in the real world.   I do get to check in on some of my favorite blogs daily.
Ali Edwards, Becky Higgins and Cathy Zielske"s are the 3 blogs that I check on a daily basis.  I especially love Ali's blog and enjoy reading about her life and her projects.  I also check in on a regular basis at Blue Cricket Design.  I like when they have a show and tell linking party were you can check out what people on other blogs are doing.  There are a lot of talented people out there.  I am thankful for that because it gives me an endless supply of inspiration.  Check out the blog little things bring smiles.  I am thinking that these canvases can also be done with letters cut out on the Cricut.  I love the bright colors.  I am thinking of making them for my craft room.  Perhaps with words like:  create, cut, paste, crop, sew....  So much to do so little time.  Thanks for stopping in to my world.

BoBunny Gabrielle Elegance

The line of paper I used is BoBunny Gabrielle Elegance, what a beautiful line,I love double sided paper. With paper like this a person doesn't need allot of embellishments.

I cut the Family out with the Cricket Home Accents cartridge, the metal tag is Tim Holtz. The butterfly I cut 2 of the same out so I could layer it and fold the wings to give it some dimension! It turned out great I think.

The cards were very simple. I cut the butterflies out with an inch circle punch and I Mog Podged them with the glitter to give them a little sparkle...love the bling!!!
Thanks for stopping by! Leah Candler

Whats Up Wednesday!

My latest and greatest infatuation is mini books. They can give the "life artist" a chance to do a quick slice of life; a childs soccer season, a typical monday, Easter or any fun day with the family et. These little slices of life help you remember a lot without a lot of time put into them and they are easy to pick up and look at, really fun to embellish and you can whip it out in an afternoon. Paper Pals has tons of ideas for quick, sweet, fun mini-book scrapbooking. I did a mini-album of Romans summer for a Valentines gift this year and he loved it! I used the "My Minds Eye fine and Dandy" Collection at Paper Pals, It was a total blast!

More Good Day Sunshine

I don't think I posted this layout earlier that I made with more of the Good Day Sunshine line from My Minds Eye. Can't say how much I love this manufacturer!

I post this as these two boys are playing together downstairs. The photo in the layout was taken a year ago, guess it's time to take another shot!

Do you have any good projects where you compared photos of the same people at different times in life?
