Proud Day

I picked up  some papers from the "Feelin' Groovy" line by We R Memory Keepers when I was in Unforgettable Memories last week. The colours and matching embellishments are perfect for all kinds of summer layouts so pull out those summer holiday pictures and get scrapping!

My parents came up for the graduation ceremonies of my two boys.  It was their first visit back to Fort St John since moving away 7 years ago. And it was their first grandchildren to graduate.  I took full advantage of the photo op!
 I tore some orange mulberry paper and tucked it under the green pattern on each edge.

Love the little wood cameras. There are a tonnes in a package.  You may recognize them from a few recent layouts .
I layered the sticker flowers belonging to this We R Memory Keepers line, with some Prima Blooms.  The leaf stick pins are Maya Roads and the flag is from the SMASH line.

Another of those cute wood cameras.  This one looks like an antique.
I've also used a couple more stickers from the sheet that belongs with the Feelin' Groovy line.

The Grandmother and Grandfather tags are from my stash of Making Memories embellishments.

I had a couple of chipboard birds that I perched on the jute with a Prima bloom on the end.

Be sure to check out this line next time you're in Unforgettable Memories.  You won't be disappointed.

All Dressed Up

We found this cute collar and tie for my Mum's dog at the Touch of Salt Spring craft and art show last December.  We made him pose for a ton of photos.  Kona was a very good sport about it all and didn't even try and remove his tie.

I started with a forest green Bazzill cardstock. Using MM metallic gold paint and a piece of bubble wrap I added some colour to the base.  I sprayed my cheesecloth with gold Glimmer Mist and spritzed a little on the cardstock also.

I wanted to do a punched border and found this Christmas lights punch in my stash.  I used it along one edge of my gold cardstock.
 The snowflakes are by Maya Rd.  I've used them before on this layout. Here I've dressed them up a little with Kaiser gold bling.

The gold stars came out of a Making Memories set of Christmas poinsettia's, leaves and stars. They'd be easy to make.  Just punch a star out of red cardstock and coat with glitter.
It's never too late to get those Christmas photos scrapped.  There is an entire section in Unforgettable Memories of Christmas papers and embellishments. Check it out soon!
