Some of My Favorite Scrapbook Layouts!

I love this photo of my son. It is probably my favorite pic of him taken this summer. I love the way he was looking up at me with those blue eyes! Even with the grape ice pop drippings on his chin! LOL

I used some Prima flowers as well as some Heidi Swapp Heart and Butterfly Mirror Embellies, which I left as is.(You can use rub-ons, paint, etc on them!) These were sent to me by Jennifer McGuire! They are just adorable and add a nice touch to pages and cards. Thanks Jennifer! You Rock!! I also
used some gorgeous black crystal swirls by Prima. The background paper is by Creative Imaginations.

Here are a few of my favorite pages from the past couple of months!

This one is a photo of my son, Antonio and my niece, Francesca, taken over Fourth of July weekend. They were both watching TV laying together on the couch, not a care in the world! Aren't they cute!! Papers, chipboard and stamps are all Inque Boutique.

This one has a few pics of my son trying to help his mommy plant some Spring flowers. He was picking dandelions out of the grass and "planting" them in my large barrel planters. He is my lil helper!! The page was done on some Pink Paislee paper. I used some Inque Boutique stamps and chipboard as well as some ribbon.

This next one was actually lifted from a digital layout that I had seen. While, I like the way digi layouts look, I still like the 3-D effect of traditional Lo's. This is a photo of my niece Gabrielle. She is so beautiful. All the flowers and butterflies are Inque Boutique Stamps. I added some lace ribbon and leaf ribbon to make it appear like a trellis. I also adhered some crystals to look like dew drops.

And here are a few more.....

More pics of my Lil Pumpkin...

And this one is a photo of my family taken on my Brother and Sister-in-laws 25th Wedding Anniversary, when they renewed their vows! What a beautiful day!

Thank you for stopping by and for all the sweet comments everyone has left for me!
Tomorrow??! I will post my favorite altered items!

Have A Great Day!

Hugs, Melissa
