A plan comes together…


So, I am bopping along last night getting ready for my mom and dad to come work visit for a days, and I realize that I agreed to scrap with the big girls over at CHF this morning….I’m not even worthy to carry their paper trimmers! Not only that, but I have 1200 photos in my Shutterfly account waiting for a coupon so that I can finally print some pictures from the last year and a half.

I start shuffling through one envelope of random photos, and find this picture of the girls taken in 2005 in my neighbors front yard. It’s one of my favorites (that’s why I have printed it already) because it was a special day for our little family. Not only are the colors bright and fun, but it will go well with my new All Things Fall set from the Rummage Bin line at CHF, thus a plan comes together! So here’s my little pieced together 8×8 page, you can see other real scrapspiration by checking out Alli Miles, Julia Stainton, Becky Olsen and Kim Hughes.  And if anyone has a good Shutterfly coupon, let me know! 😉 


  • Stamps: Pindot Scrapblock ™, All Things Fall, Big Inspiration (‘original’ and coming Thursday), Art of Framing and Beautiful
  • Cardstock: Sunflower Medium, Blush Dark, Suede Dark Brown, Buttercream Prism
  • Ink: Espresso, Cranberry & Butterscotch Adirondack
  • Accs: Chocolate Twill (Ellen Hutson) & Chocolate Mini Brads (Paper Studio)  

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. The picture of your girls is priceless!!! It is a great layout. You will treasure it forever.

  8. Oh my goodness…you need to give yourself more credit…you have major scrappin’ talent. I LOVE this page. The white background really showcases that adorable photo. The stamping is PERFECT! Love it!

  9. What a great page! I get the yearly plan from Shutterfly, its like $25 or $29 for the year and your prints are a little cheaper, plus with your yearly plan you get a free album. You can now go through Shutterfly and pick up your pictures at your local Target if you don’t want to wait to get them in the mail. At the photo checkout at Target you can buy photo developing gift cards and the more it is the better percentage you get off of your developing >”< hope that helps
