Ladybird Mini Album

I had an absolute wonderful time creating this mini! My nana used to call me Ladybird when I was younger and I have tons of ladybug paraphernalia :-) I am so excited to share this mini with all of you! Visit my friend Samantha at pinkaboo6691, she was my spark of inspiration for this mini. Enjoy!

Life on the {Scrap} Beach, December Challenges

Challenge #3: Deck the Halls

The third challenge was to deck out your page. We had to create a layout that is completely decked out ~ ribbons, embellishments, bling ~ just layer it up & make it look grogeous! Here's what I came up with.

These are Pictures from my graduation from Fresno State this past May.

Challenge #2: Blue Christmas

The second challenge was to make a blue monochromatic layout. We could also use white, kraft or black, but no colors other than blue. Here's what I came up with.

This was my godson's first day of preschool. Isn't he so cute? :-D

The first challenge was to make a layout using patterned paper from three different manufacturers. Here's what I came up with. I used papers from My Mind's and some other scraps that were in my scrap bin. The pictures are from my trip to Disneyland this past May.

Hello All,

So I had a little bit of time today to put together my first sets of Christmas cards. My inspiration comes from Kristina Werner http://www.kwernerdesign.com. I used the card from Day 6 of her Holiday Card Series as inspiration. I used papers from the My Mind's Eye, Colorful Christmas collection and my Cricut 'Wild Card' cartridge to put these cards together. I had a ton of fun making these colorful cards.

Now, I want to see some of the colorful creations that all of you are putting together for the holidays. Respond to this post with pics of some of your latest holiday creations! I can't wait to see what you all are creating :-)

Hello Craft World

Hello everyone in the craft world. My name is Carolyn Harris and I am native to the San Francisco Bay Area. I am fairly new to the scrapbooking and craft world and I'm having a blast learning all the techniques that everyone is sharing. I got really into scrapbooking about 3 months ago when I moved back home from school. I graduated from Fresno State in May with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design. I love color and arranging things and found it very easy to transition into the craft world. I also enjoy planning events, especially parties :-) I have not found a job in my field yet, but I'm still on the hunt. I have a few projects that I will be sharing with you all and I will continue to keep you posted with new ideas that I come up with. I hope to hear from many of you soon.
