Family Heritage

So my mom's side of the family (10 kids!) planned a family reunion. In preparation for the reunion, I scanned in tons of our older family photos and made scrapbook pages to share at the reunion. I also was in charge of researching our family tree on (fabulous site) and then creating on large post boards. I used 6 posters for Granny & Grandad down! Now, that's one big family!

Here are some of the beauties I made with my heritage pics that I got the joy and privilege to share with my aunts, uncles and cousins. They all "belong" to my mom for now but I know I'll end up with them again someday. They were a joy to create.

Peach and lace

There is a challenge to make a layout with peach and lace, not a color scheme or look I'm used to. I do boy layouts, bright layouts- that sounds sweet and pretty. I gotta try it! I love to be challenged.

Here is my entry (still a bit masculine) but it works.

Put on your Party Hat!

The super groooooovy scrapbook blog "If it's Groovy" is turning a year old and YOU can get a present for joining the party. From Jan 4-30th, there will be a blog hop through many of the Groovy Girl designers blogs with challenges and PRIZES!

For my party game, I challenge you to create a page that has a birthday party hat (or crown) on it. It can be in the photo or as a page elements such as a sticker, die-cut, stamp, paper, what-ever. Digi or paper.
I will showcase all the entries here on the blog. To submit an entry, post a comment to this thread linking to your page. Or email directly to me at Make sure I can contact you if you win. To get you started, here is a page from me with a giant party hat in the center!

And if you win (number randomly selected from from all the entries), I'll send you this Birthday Girl embellishment pack filled with pink birthday goodies, both handmade and store-bought and sent with love!

And here are the entries I have received so far. Keep them coming! I love to see great work.

Hat's off (and onto your scrap page)

How about this idea- unstaple one of those paper party hats and use that as part of your page!

Here are a few more scrap-pages I did with party hats on them.
Party hats can also fit the party THEME, like these below.

Now, show me yours!
