Some Scrappyness...

I hope you are having a HAPPY ST. Paddy's Day. I hope You have lots of Luck coming your way.

We recently took a trip to the Gulfcoast. I got some awesome photos of Bella playing in the sand. It was pretty cool weather but when you were in the sun it wasnt too bad. It wore me slam out but it was nice to get away even if for just a day or two. We are fortunate to live close to Gulfshores and it not be that bad of a ride. We have not been on any type of family vacation so this was a nice trial run for HOPEFULLY many to come. Took me several days to recouperate from just the walking. My legs ached but, the smiles and memories made, were soooo worth it!

I wanted to make something so we could remember our vacation. Bella had such a great time looking for shells. She loved the beach so much. I decided to take the Shadow box from last months UNKIT and decorate it up with our memories.

Here is a look see:

The Shadow Box is a Tim Holtz ideal-Ology Configureations. I decorated it with October Afternoon Seaside, Tim Holtz Tape, Glimmer Mist, Tim Holtz Crackle Paint, Shimmerz Blingz, Ranger Acryllic Paints and stuffies from the beach.

I also have made some layouts recently I will show ya.

This is with The Gabrielle BoBunny Line I got really lucky at the Scrapbook store down in Foley, GiGi's, She had just gotten in all this scrumptious Bo Bunny. So Ya I had to have it. (along with a bunch of other sctuffs) HEY! I DON'T get to go often!
BUT BOY when I do!
I also used some Gold Blingz by Shimmerz to make sand on the photos.. can you see it?

Love that stuff

Ok here is one I love the bright colors...

This is Nikki Sivils It's Raining It's Pouring collection. I also added some Core dinations Cardstock that I sanded in there.
Had Happy words on it. SO CUTE!

This has been a great distraction. STILL WAITING on this blasted shoulder stuff. Roadblocks keep coming up (insurance company issues and just you name it) part of why we had to get out of town. I was just overly agitated figured could hurt there just like here and needed a break, an attitude adjustment. You ever have to do that? Like you come back and maybe you get a fresh start or something?
sometimes maybe?

anyway YES it is alot harder to scrap but I still do it my hand and arm from elbow down are ok. as long as I dont have to lift anything heavy or reach up for anything over on tall shelves Im all good. Thanks for asking and being concerned xoxox
