Scraps Remembered By Cher

A Victorian Layout Of My Girls!

This layout was created using a beautiful Melissa Francis paper line titled, "Margaret."  I loved the Victorian children in the design.  It would also be gorgeous to use in a Christmas layout. I was lucky to find some Basic Grey tags and card stock in my stash, which I distressed by tearing and chalking the edges.  I used lace throughout the layout, cutting some into flower shapes and photo corners.  I then used a strand of pearls and some lace ribbon to embellish the page.

California Girls!

This summer our youngest daughter flew out to California to visit her sister, just before her move to San Francisco...They had a blast together! Jodie couldn't believe how beautiful the Grass Valley area was.  She spent hours feeding deer from her hand!  Jamie, was very fortunate to live in a gated community with a gorgeous lake. The pictures were so beautiful, I didn't have to add a lot of embellishments to the page.  I love the digital turquoise frame from  The black ornate frame is also from  The bolted glass knob is from  

My Bucket List!

Every Aug. hubby and I head to K.C. for the Central States Veterinary Convention. Once we arrive we usually meet up with some friends, eager to plan our weekend. Unfortunately, because of family commitments, my friend was unable to join me for our usual lunch and shopping festivities. My options were to sit in a lonely hotel room, waiting for hubby's classes to end or to do something I have always dreamed of...So I did it, I made a Bucket List! Determined to learn about every scrapbook store in the K.C area, I began my google search. Just minutes from downtown K.C. is "The Scrapbook Page", location, Shawnee, KS. Named 'One of the Top 10 Scrapbook Stores in the Country' by Better Homes & Gardens Scrapbook's etc. magazine. Although, easy to miss from the HWY, as it is tucked inside a little stripmall, the space inside was filled with YUMMY SCRAPPY EYECANDY:-) and the largest cropping area I have ever seen! The store has a wonderful vintage feel and little vignettes of paper collections, embellies and ephemera that include my favorites; Graphic45, Tim Holtz and My Minds Eye!
This Layout was created with the Shabby Chic Die Cut Glittered Paper, which is part of the Lost & Found Collection, from My Minds Eye and is some of the most GORGEOUS paper I've ever seen...Love It! Also used Prima Flowers and painted them with Glimmer Mist and Perfect Pearls. The ribbon, lace, buttons and feathers are from JoAnn Fabrics. Butterflies are chipboard pieces from the Madeline Collection from K&Company. The Ornate Plate and Baroque Die Cut is from Tim Holtz and the Large Crystal and Ring Dangle Crystals are from 7gypsies.
Thanks so much for stopping in!
