Horsin' Around...

And, drum roll's my last layout from my stupendously productive (ha!) scrapping retreat (now 3 weeks ago). 

And yes, another layout made with Echo Park those cute little banners (some of them were stickers and others I made from the coordinating patterned paper). Have I mentioned that I love Echo Park?!:)))

Love that cool old red barn...I played countless hours in that barn as a child. <3

Great Catch Layout

Here's another layout I made at my scrapping retreat. I thought I was very productive with the 9-1/2 pages I got made in 2-1/2 hmmm, I'm a really slow scrapper (anyone else that slow?), but hey sometimes it pays off because I was the "BIGGEST LOSER" at the retreat:))))) (meaning I got the least done and won a nice prize pack, but is it sad that I still feel I was very productive??)

This one was a little different for me because it doesn't have any pink on it at all:))) I took all the color cues from the photos...

Love these fun fishing photos (taken at my parent's property near Spokane, WA). The title is kinda ironic because I think all they caught that day was a 3" little fish (which yes, they threw back), but they had a lotta fun!!!

Most supplies from Echo Park except tall tree die cut (which is from My Mind's Eye)
 & Date Stamp (American Crafts "Dear Lizzy")

A Matching Layout (to Yesterday's)

As promised, I wanted to share the layout I made to go along with the 3 Besties Layout from yesterday. I scraplifted this idea from my friend Erica (who found the idea on Pinterest). Love all these fun circles!
I also love this sweet photo of my beautiful girl taken on her 6th Birthday!

Love the fun sticker embellishments (owls, butterfly, flowers and the rainbow from yesterday) from K & Co.

I've Been Scrappin'...

A couple weekends ago I had the huge blessing of going on a scrapbooking retreat with two of my scrapping pals, Erica and Steph. We had such a great time staying up late and scrapping together at the Ashley Inn in Cascade, Idaho. Beautiful hotel...great food...good friends...and making progress on my scrapbooking!! I look forward to doing this every year!

Here's one of my pages from my weekend.

I wanted to share this layout of Ellie's 1st lost tooth...back in July 2011 when she was 5-1/2.  I used Echo Park's Summer Days Line.

I plan on sharing more pages with you in the next few days...:)))

Family Ties Layout

This month over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles, I got to choose the challenge and I chose something near and dear to family. I would have loved to scrapbook about my extended family but with limited time and limited photos...I chose to scrap our little family instead. 

After my divorce in 1998 (and being close to 30) I wasn't really ever sure I'd be part of a family other than the one I grew up with...and, in all honesty, I never saw myself as having a child. But then God blessed me with an awesome husband and together we decided that we wanted a family...then God again blessed me with our beautiful daughter Ellie (now 7). I thank God for giving me what I wasn't sure I'd ever have...a wonderful little family to call my own.

What family has God blessed you with? 
We'd love for you to share with us over at the SEM blog today.... 

I've titled the challenge "Family Ties" and the Scrap Twist to include this month is Ribbon!

Created with Echo Park Summer Days Paper Pack
