Layout Of The Week at Ivy Scraps

I am so proud and happy that my layout won LOTW Week 4 September 2011 at Ivy Scraps. I knew I had to scrap this photo as soon as I saw it. I wanted to share it with my daughters but of course, I am totally unable to post just a normal pic......it has to be scrapped!!!! LOL!!! This is a copy of a photo of my husbands' maternal grandmother. My girls are lucky I didn't know her name when they were born. They would've surely been named Addie and Octavia. Just totally love those old fashioned names. The kit I used is the August 2011 Mega - My Fair Lady by the Ivy Scraps Collabs Team. The absolutely perfect kit for heritage pages.

Color Challenge QP by LilyBelle

I've been in a bit of a slump lately......and my new part time job is being more like a full time job?!? It is taking up way too much of my scrapping time LOL!!! The Color Challenge at Ivy Scraps has really been hopping this month. Many beautiful layouts and mini kits have been posted. And the wonderfully talented LilyBelle has made this beautiful Quick Page from my Summer Woods Mini. The mini  kits and the Quick Page are available to Ivy Scraps Members in the September Color Challenge thread HERE.

September 2011 Color Challenge at Ivy Scraps

Bet you all didn't see this coming........LOL!!! I think moving to the Woods is having a very strong influence on my designs. Just like my designs had a very distinct Southwest flavor when I lived in the desert, I think my designs are going to take a distinct turn towards the Woods!! I can't help but be inspired by all the beauty of Mother Nature that is around me. These colors and the mini kit I made were just itching to be shared. Here are the colors I chose for this month's challenge.

Here is the mini I created as a gift for those who participate in the challenge.

You have to register at Ivy Scraps Forum and have your membership activated by an administrator to be able to view the forum threads and participate in the challenges. Members can find the Color Challenge HERE. Everyone can check out the Color Challenge Gallery HERE. Hope to see you there!!!

For All Us Pet Lovers

I've been so crazy busy this month, but had to take a sec to share this very special layout by our dear Ivy Scraps Member ~ Bernie aka Bernadette1 in our forum. She wrote the poem and I'm just so very impressed I wanted to highlight her special talent!!!

Every once in a while I get in the mood to write a little verse, so I did this one back awhile ago, and thought that I would post it. I love animals and hate to see them abused and not taken care of.
