DT Layout for SOUS

Welcome dear scrappy friends.
My turn over at the
 to reveal my take on
 Leah's newest sketch.
Ellis Island, New York Harbor.
Another favourite photo from
 my recent US trip.

Leah's fabulous sketch.

I decided to go with one large
photo instead of the three on
 the sketch. Though I did try
 cutting the photo into three sections,
 but it just didn't work with
 this photo. I wanted to
 keep it intact.

Lots of random stamping on the
 background paper, which is from
 the "Base Coat" collection
 from Kaiser.

Hinges from Tim Holtz
"Hardware Findings" die.

Embellishments from Kaiser
 "75 cents" collection.

Flowers from Petaloo.

I hope you will have time to join
us with this newest sketch over at
And, don't forget to visit the
 SOUS Blog daily for tons
 of inspiration from my
 SOUS Sisters.
Thanks for dropping in.
Be back soon

DT Layout for SOUS

Hi everybody.
I'm a wee bit late posting this week!
Between removal companies,

 wee bit upside down

But, as they say, better
 late than never.
Here is my take on the current sketch
 over at

The great sketch from our
co-leader Nanne.

A couple of favourite photos
 from Carpenters' Hall
 in Philadelphia.

Beautiful papers from

Flowers from
Prima and Green Tara.

Fronds die from
 Marianne Designs.

Bazzill cardstock
and lace and trim
 from my stash.

Another layout completed

 over at
 with our newest sketch.

of Nanne's wonderful

Nanne's Sketch....


Papers from 
My Mind's Eye
 "Cupid's Arrow"
 and stickers from
 the same collection.

Bazzill cardstock.

Black inked edges for definition, 
and a clean and simple design.

Not my usual style of scrapbooking,

go with the papers.

 Nanne's sketch is perfect 
for these papers.

Calendar - February

It's February.
The birthday month of my daughter.
Continuing with my Graphic 45
"Place In Time"

Well, it's not really a calendar,
there are no dates on it.
Just a beautiful monthly page to hang
 on the wall in a pre bought frame
 (shown last month).
I'm pretty fortunate that my closest
 family birthdays are all in
 different months.
Except daughter in law, who shares
 her month with middle
 Granddaughter, in

The pages have two deep
 pockets, for storage of
 birthday cards, etc.

They hang on these three dress
 frames in my scrap room when
 they're not in the white frame
hanging in the lounge.

Thanks for dropping in.
Don't forget my
 Stuck On U Sketches
reveal tomorrow.
Until then...
Hugs for now
