Ok, so now I am on a roll! Thanks Jen, I needed that push. I was so caught up in making presents and thank you cards it took up all my time. It has been so therapeutic to scrap pages for my own book. So, I applaud you for that. The two layouts are from my daughters birthday party luau, as if you can't tell from the pictures. lol.

The Aloha layout is a mix of different papers layered and razored on to the Bazzill to give it a look of one sheet of paper. The Bazzill is color core, The blue paper is Creative Imaginations Beach paper I got at Laurie's store. I loved it the minute I set my eyes on it. The Hawaiian girl is a sticker from Karen Foster, also from the Dream as our the little earthy colored flowers. I added Kaiser Bling to the middle of the flowers and to the frames. I added ribbon I bought at the Dream the Luau Tag (also a sticker by Karen Foster). The small strip of starfish is a sticker from the Beach Creative Imaginations Line as are the big Hawaiian flowers at the top. The frames framing the pics are from the paper Hawaiian pack I got at Walmart along with the green pp. The pictures are a few of my friends and family members. Check out the dude in the coconuts and dress and hat. That is our pal MIKE. In this picture we are Mike's Hula Angels. lol

Onto layout two - Just A Gigolo is a layout of my friend Marc who is a ladies man. The journaling can be read by clicking on the image. I scan my layouts so you can see every detail. There are some bling throughout the layout. Flower bling, not just any bling! I love BLING! The chipboard is a piece Sharon gave me ages ago. I inked it and used it, gave it a nice touch to the layout! The palm tree is from We Are Memory Keepers, Totally Tropical stickers. The journaling sticker and the letters are all made by Creative Imaginations - totally tropical line.

Quick funny story. My best friend Trina called me last night, she was like, "DID YOU KNOW THERE IS A SCRAPBOOK STORE ON NEWBURY STREET?" I started laughing and said yeah, I know someone who works there. With that said, looks like your doing your job Sharon cause my friend goes by it all the time, she works at Fenway and this is the first time she said something!

Well, till the next layout! (((HUGS))) Scraphappy Nicole

Totally Tropical 3rd Birthday cake time

Well, Happy Summer folks! I had my daughters birthday party and it was a big ol' success!!!! We had about 60 people at my house. Where I haven't done a layout in months, I figured I would try something easy late last night and put this number together. The paper in the back is a paper stack (Hawaiian) by Colorbok. The Bazzill is the color core bazzill. The stickers are all Totally Tropical We are Memory Keepers except the Hula Girl journaling die which is also a sticker but it is made by Creative Imaginations. The pictures tell the story. My niece Jessica was holding Alicia as she blew out the candles. I have a funny cake story but I will save that for another day. This is the start to many layouts I plan to do. Please stay tuned. Hope your all having a FABULOUS Summer. (((((HUGS TO ALL))))))))) ScraphappyNicole!

A new challenge?

Alright ladies! It's been since MAY that we've posted here!!! That saddens me! Although, I must admit, that I haven't done much since then! I've lost that lovin' feeling, out of the groove. But, I think it's time to get things rolling again. What do you say?

I guess I should challenge us to do something and post it! If you need inspiration, check out or
I might take part in the first challenge site, I could use up tons of my stickers and rub ons that are just hangin out and collecting dust!

I am saying 2 weeks; then we all should have posted something - anything really. Doesn't have to be a work of art. Just something to get us moving again! GOOD LUCK!!
