Cozy Nest

My son found the bird's nest in the vent when he was pressure washing the house. It had been abandoned. The layout was inspired by Bo Bunny's August sketch challenge. All of the materials except the bird are from Bo Bunny's Enchanted Garden collection. The felt bird is from Basically Bare and the inks are all from Ranger. Sparkle added with Stickles.

Who's the Elf Here?

My 3-year-old grandson wouldn't visit with Santa when they went to The Santa Claus House in North Pole, Alaska, but he did find something intriguing about the elf! The layout was inspired by Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo. All of the materials are from Teresa Collins' Candy Cane Lane collection. I hid the journaling under the red flap, and more pictures under the striped flap.

This two-page spread is part of an album of my daughter and family's camping trip
around mainland Alaska. Journaling on the left will be filled in when they return home
and she tells me exactly where they were in these pictures! The layout was inspired by a
Sketch Challenge from Scrapbook and Cards Today. All materials are from
Keller's Creations Scrap It Fast.

Beautiful Photo Today

My granddaughter and I had a great time together one dreary day last summer looking for photo opportunities - this great photo was the result. Her photo was displayed at the public library. I was so proud of her! The layout was inspired by this week's sketch challenge from Scrapbook Steals.

Piece of the Past (Version 2)

This is the second time I've done this event; the first was for a calendar, but this one is for a scrapbook. 
The first non-Natives to settle in Kodiak were from Russia, so that's a very important part of our history and culture. My granddaughter attended Russian Culture Camp last summer - on this night they performed balalaika music and traditional folk dances for us. The layout was inspired by a 
Get It Scrapped sketch

Paper: SEI and Bo Bunny
Washi: We R Memory Makers
Tag: Cricut
Enamel Dot: Simple Stories
Ink: Versafine and Tsukineko
