I hope everyone had a fab Christmas and was able to spend time with cherished friends and family.  We had a wonderful time with my family, and of course ate way too much, as usual!  I took a few pictures and hopefully some will be worthy of scrapping.

But in the meantime, I've been busy trying to get some photos of our new house and related projects scrapped.  I did these pages just before Christmas.   We did so much landscaping the year we moved in and it was so gratifying to see that all our hard work resulted in a lovely blossoms all spring and summer!

I used BasicGrey Urban Prairie mostly on both of these layouts. I love the background pp on this LO and decided to create a larger version of the bird on the paper. I think it turned out quite cute!  The fencing is cardboard painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint and it looks really great IRL.  That big chartreuse flower is Heidi Swapp and it was way too bright for my taste, so I dabbled it with white paint and smeared some pink stickles on it.  Then I added a Prima flower and voila, I like it much better!  The letters are layered Cricut Printing Press mounted on green CS scraps.  They just didn't pop enough so I outlined them with a black pen.

I really like the lace effect around the chevron on this LO.  That was easy to do, I just cut a straight lace strip with my border cutter.  Then I cut each of the lace segments apart and attached them one by one.  I also learned how to weld letters with my Cricut Design Studio for this LO.  I've had that program for a year and have hardly used it so I was glad to accomplish that!  I think I will use my Cricut more as a result.

We have really good friends visiting us from Denver next week.  We are so excited that they are coming!!  So I must get up off my rear and get busy!!  Happy scrapping ya'll!  ;-)
