layouts, mini album, and OZZ blog hop

I went on a date this past weekend — with paper. LOL. Yeah, I know… pretty pathetic, huh?! Well, who cares?! I surely don’t because I got my creative side on. I made sure that I finished designing a mini album for the class I’m teaching. Once I get the “okay” to share all the details, I’ll make sure to post pictures of it.

I also finished a couple of layouts and a mini album for Memories Live On, one of the local scrapbook stores in my area. It’s so awesome that I get to create stuff to display in a store for others to look at for inspiration. 🙂

My first layout for the store was created using this week’s sketch over at Pink Sketches. It has the latest paper from Best Creations, Inc.


Another layout using the latest from Best Creations, Inc. was made for my local scrapbook store. I entitled it “Sweet Pups” because Scrapfreak is hosting a challenge to create a layout using the word “sweet” in your title. …and can you believe it?! I finished a double page layout!! My first one in over a year! LOL. Check it out:


I also finished a project to display in the scrapbook store. I made another Christmas mini album. This time, however, I used one of the latest lines from Little Yellow Bicycle, which I totally love because the paper packs are cut to match the acrylic and chipboard pieces to the albums.

…and here’s a layout I finished just for fun using up some of my Fancy Pants Designs scraps:


Oh, and before I forget —  tomorrow starts the OZZ (Original Zutter Zisters) Blog Hop! There are some awesome prizes up for grabs and tons of inspiration to look at, so make sure to stop by the Bind It All blog. I promise that you’re gonna love it! 🙂

Okay, enough scrappity scraps for today. How about I leave you with some photos I shot of Maui and Hilo this weekend?!

"MUHAHA!! I'm the coolest dog in town!"

"MUHAHA!! I'm the coolest dog in town!"

"Did you need something?!"

"Did you need something?!"

Seriously, they are weirdos!

Seriously, they are weirdos!

"Don't you think I'm adorable?!"

"Don't you think I'm adorable?!"

"I'm cuter than Hilo!"

"I'm cuter than Hilo!"

Hope everyone has a fabulous week!
