Are You Ready for Some Football?

Just got some of the new paper lines from MOXXIE and boy, am I excited to create with these.

Looking back in time, I found this pic of my son a year ago playing "football" with his Daddy. Maybe someday he'll play "real" ball, but for now a day at the park is all this Mama can handle.

Moxxie created a super sporty line called Grid Iron. I distressed edges and added some metal brads and a little wooden word embellishment to round out the page.

I love how these papers have such strong contrasting colors- the browns, greens and creams really pop. I'm a huge fan of this sticker set too. It creates the fun for you.

So, are you ready for some football? Or maybe ready to scrap some football?

Autumn Glory & Awesome MOXXIE Newness

So MOXXIE is releasing 7 awesome new lines. I want to show off the gorgeous, deep, rich, warm line called Autumn Glory. It has great stickers (I plan to do so many more pages with this line just to get a chance to use the beautiful stickers I haven't yet taken advantage of).

I couldn't hold back and had to create not 1 but 2 pages with these beauties.

My first son first- look at him and his buddies playing in the fall leaves. We don't get that chance enough in California where I live. I just love the rich flowers floating across one of the pages so while watching TV, I fussy cut them and overlapped them over the photo and some textured burlap. There really is so little I needed to add as the colors and beauty of the paper alone is stunning. 

My second son second. Here he is in Indian headdress. I loved all the rich colors so I did a triple mat to show off the depth of colors. Added some texture with burlap and skeleton leaves (old timer scrappers remember those) and a bit of bling. I love flourishes and wanted to show them off a bit by adding my journaling along one of the wavy lines. 

Now go check out more of the awesomeness using ALL the new MOXXIE lines!

Little Mountain Man **MOXXIE**

I've gone camping every summer of my life since I've been alive. And now that I have my own little family- we camp together too. One of my husband's favorite activities is hiking. This MOXXIE line called Happy Camper is just that- HAPPY!

 For this Hiking page, I used rough, distressed edges. I misted the green with "dirty" brown and inked edges of photo mats in green and brown.

I loved the trees on one patterned paper but wanted a green background. Easy solution- fussy cutting. It's inexpensive and can be done in front of the TV.


 I'm in love with that family photo right now. Isn't my family cute?
 Happy Campers!
