Faux stitching and scraplifting

So, apparently, somewhere in taking care of everyone else these last couple of months, I seem to have misplaced my mojo. Thank goodness for all the many talented scrappers out there to provide much needed inspiration. :-) And maybe one of these days, I'll actually learn how to change the thread in Caitlyns sewing machine. When I need black stitching, I'm reduced to poking holes and connecting the dots. LOL

Remember the photo of Ayden in the pea costume? Yep, scrapped, using a sketch on A Million Memories.

The journaling reads: "Ayden, I want you to know that your OTHER grandmother is the one who did this to you, although I'm not above scrapping it. You look disgusted with the get up now, I can only imagine how you'll feel in 12 years from now!" LOL

Here's another layout I did today, totally lifting Julie Bonner's layout for A Million Memories.

And last but not least, Jen issued a Use Your Stash challenge on Paper Whores, so I dug out some birthday stamps for Peyton's birthday layout. This was a funny layout also. Peyton decided she wanted all 14 candles on her cake and it took her a good while to light them all. Once lit, we all sang happy birthday, and Kennedy promptly blew out all the candles! LOL Peyton then proceeded to relight all 14 candles.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by again soon! I have some very exciting news to share! :-D
