new layouts and a little more

I've been a really busy girl! I know I say that a lot, but it's true. LOL Today I spent the entire day kitting a class that I'm teaching at Ever After Scrapbooks this weekend. It's such a fun project and I'm debuting it there.
I've been gone a lot. Luckily, my last trip was for fun, and I took my little Sierra with me. I'm excited to be taking her on another one next month!!
During my last trip, I created a lot of pages using pictures that I took. You can see some of the pictures in my previous post. Here are the rest of the layouts I did.
Most of these are using Fancy Pants designs. I used the same line to show how you could make each layout look different!
This first one was one that I made for a challenge with Gina. We started the challenge one of the last times I was there. We each have to have three rules. A few of the things we had to do to the layout were: use two pictures, use a template, use a punch and create a banner.

This next one is one I love because of the picture. I love these girls! They are so much fun! I used my glaze pen to write the word FRIENDS.

This one is using an Echo Park line. I had a lot of extras and I used them all to create this layout.

This one I love because of the saying. As soon as I found it I had to use it. I love using these chipboard letters by Maya Road.
thanks for looking. Please feel free to leave me a comment. Have a great day!

Oh Snap!!! I'm picturing a blog post with lots of pics!

I'm sitting in really warm Elk Grove where I'm visiting my good friend, Gina Lideros. We are having a blast!!!
I want to tell ya about my time here but I gotta tell you about the last two weeks.
I got home on Monday from a fantastic trip to southern California. I had such a great time! My friend, Sherry Mendoza put together an event called, Camp Mojo and it was a blast! I taught classes at Stamping Details during the day and scrapped with friends at night. Before we went to the location we decided to take pictures because we all happen to match. There were sunflowers in a vase and we just popped them out and had a field day! LOL Here are a few of the pics.

I got home on Monday and headed to Elk Grove with Sierra on Wednesday night. We've been here this entire time! We are having such an amazing time!!!
Every time Gina and I get together we do the following:
Eat at Chick-fil-a and Chevys. We go to Leatherbys for ice cream. We go to Michaels, Joanns, and Target. We go to Homegoods and pass by Starbucks.
NOW....we are going to add Reflexology to the mix! I'm so happy!!!
Since I've been here, I've done three photo shoots!!!!
Here are just a few of the pictures of some of the shoots.

It was so much fun shooting them!!! They are such pretty girls!
Here are two layouts that I did using the pictures.

I'm working on another one but I'm not done yet. I'll post soon.
Which one of these pictures is your favorite????
Thanks for stopping by!!! This weekend I'll be at one of my favorite stores, Ever After!! Come and see me.

beautiful inside and out

Sierra just turned 12 on the 4th of July. I couldn't wait to take pictures of her. It's actually been a long time since I've done one of my photo shoots and couldn't wait to do it. Every year she complains about me taking pictures but this time was a little different. She actually liked the dress I bought her and loved the hat that grandma lent her. The suitcase was one that we've had for a long time.
I took her to old Niles to take them. She looked so darn beautiful!!!! WOW!!!! Here are just a few of the pictures I took.

thanks for looking! I'll be posting more pictures soon of Jeremy's shoot that I'll be taking....he doesn't know it yet. LOL
