One of My Favorite LAYOUTS

Did this page at the crop the other weekend, forgot to post it though.  Love this layout for its lovely simplicity of my beautiful daughter, Morgan. 
I layered the decorative paper on a piece of black cardstock to emphasize the green floral design - which I LOVE.  Morgan's picture is matted on white cardstock then black cardstock to give it more dimension and focus.

The birdcage I cut from a piece of scrapbookpaper then embellished with the bling,  The green rosette I created using the Tim Holtz Sizzix die and an old button. 

side few to see the layers of the flower

another, smaller Tim Holtz inspired tissue tape flower, button center with added rhinestone.  The three words I used to describe Morgan are run-ons
the birdcage is a rub-on and I added the bling to enhance it.  The butterfly is a sticker an I added the bling.

Linked to  Feature Yourself Friday, take a look for more inspiration!
Hope this inspires you to go do some scrapping, Happy Thursday!

The other flower I created is the Tim Holtz tissue tape flower he shows how to make on his blog, so easy and fun to do and so lovely when finished.  I used a flower button for the center of it an added a rhinestone to the very center.

Pink Saturday and More Mail

Its been awhile since I posted for Pink Saturday , nice to do it again!

My daughter, Morgan, is always sketching; I grabbed a stack of her "doodle" pages while she was visiting from OSU and found this and the following images.  I played with my copier and decided to "create" stationery out of her "Les Femmes"...since I love writing letters to my pals, thought this would be fun and original to use. 

Talked to Morgan about it and we are also listing them this weekend in our Etsy shop: RoMoHoDesigns,  stationery sets of Morgan's original sketches...the "ghost" image stationery works best using Sharpie Ultra Fine marker, I only had green at the time, but black would be even better.

Going to have envelopes to go along with them, will probably put a small copy of  each "Les Femmes" in the corner of the envelopes with a little decoration around the edges, still debating.

Happy to have received Pink decorated mail from my pal Kendra in CA, love all that decorative tape!

An another piece from new pal, Abby - she did all the colorful drawings on this envie, put a smile on my face!

an this is the back side of the envie and...

This is the back of the notecard she designed, so creative!!

Here's to a wonderful Pink Saturday of loveliness and inspiration!

Saturday Mail

My best friend Hilda, LOVES, really LOVES Hello Kitty and this is the letter she sent my way - so adorable!!!  Had some cute stationery inside as well and some cancelled stamps for me.

My collaged mail art envie I sent out to Hilda; all magazine clippings and I LOVE the Chinese New Year stamps!

Envie I made with some found online design going to Kendra

Quiet Saturday afternoon, spending time surfing the net and just enjoying an easy-going day.  I think brownies are needed for dessert tonight, so time to go make some - yummy!

My ten year old at 1 1/2 yrs., in her cute Halloween nightie asleep in daddy's arms.  Made the Tim Holtz inspired flower, the gossgrain ribbon is left over from a package then embellished with more flowers and bling

Our trip to Pigeon Forge, TN when Kerri, then 7 got to meet my best pal, Hilda and her daughters, Elayna and Kassidy for the first time.  They swear they saw a black bear!

We had a nice jacuzzi on our back deck at the cabin we stayed in while in Pigeon Forge - Elayna, Kassidy and Kerri loved it.

Oops, sorry took picture with layout in the protective sleeve...the girls enjoyed playing with their American Girl Dolls and even more fun shopping for clothing and accessories for them while at various stores in town.  I kinda got carried away with the rosettes, having fun making them on the Tim Holtz die for the sizzix.

These photos are 11 years old, when I was the Girl Scout leader of my daughter, Morgan's troop.  This was out camping trip for the summer.  Fast layout as I used a bunch of related paper scraps and did a "collage: style with them and the pics, fast, simple, at least the pics are finally scrapped after all these years.

quickie layout of my daughter, Morgan and her friend, Mike taken last year...this pic is actually a copy I prinited from her facebook page, forgot I had it, found it in my stash yesterday and just decided to scrap it.

Only one letter waiting for me last night, can always count on my best pal, Hilda...bright yellow envie with cute cupcakes, a nice long letter and some cancelled stamps.

Ready to go make some envies to send out this week and later time for tennis.
