Happy Birthday - LRW

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by :)

Today is another Little Red Wagon challenge, and I am the hostess!

My challenge is to use only red & white on your celebrate Canada Day!

Here is the card that I made!

I am working with very few supplies because everything is packed up (we are moving in less than 2 weeks).  It was a bit challenging, but I pulled it off! 

I have not....and will not be packing up my Silhouette until the day we move so I pulled out my red pen and drew my sentiment in the bottom right corner.  I found an old template that had stars on it, so I traced the pattern on my cardstock and then stitched with red floss!  I had white cardstock and a scrap of red checked paper that matched the floss and ink colour.........PRESTO!

I hope you will have a chance to play along this week and join in the fun.  Also, be sure to visit the Little Red Wagon blog and link up your creation.  While you are there, be sure to check out what the other girls have been up to!

Santa Monica Pier - LRW

What a beautiful Wednesday!!! I am in such a good mood today. The sun is shining and we have SOLD our house (in only 2 days)!! We are scheduled to move into our new house in Elora on July 8th, which means that we have lots and lots of packing to do.

I am starting to pack up most of my scrapbooking supplies, so I am going to be limited on what I can create. I am going to try and focus on Jay's travel book (although I might slip in something different too).

Today is another Little Red Wagon challenge and this week it is brought to you by Rosanne! She wants the team to use 3 or more patterned papers on our project. That was easy........

I decided to make another 'albums made easy' style layout to finish off the Santa Monica Pier.  I just love this style of scrapbooking.  It is fun, easy and really makes me feel like I am getting somewhere with this project.

There are definitely more than 3 different patterned papers on my pages, plus I was able to use up lots of little items I had in my stash.  I found this 'road trip' sign and a curly arrow....along with this chipboard word that said 'GO'.  I arranged them in the first slot to set the tone for my spread.

I used photos that really stood out from the day and tried to pair them up with appropriate embellishments.  Look at this cool, lazy dog laying around on the pier.  You couldn't help but smile and he certainly was resting and relaxed.  

Here are the handsome tourists posing for a photo with the ocean and mountains in the background.  

I used stickers to personalize a few spots.....a super easy way of journaling the day.

I had one photo left over from a previous layout that I did just focusing on this very LARGE snake that Jay and David spent some time with.   I included it on this page to recap the highlights of the day.  

Thanks for stopping by and visiting!  I hope you will check out the Little Red Wagon blog and play along with this weeks challenge.   Don't forget to link up your project so we can all see what you have created.

Awesome - Little Red Wagon

It's Wednesday and I am excited to share a layout (yes, you read that correctly) that I made for the challenge for Little Red Wagon this week.

Regan challenged us to use metal on our project and I decided it was time for another layout for Jay's California album. 

With all the work we have been doing around our house to get it listed for sale, I really haven't had time to play with my scrapbooking stuff.  I found a similar layout on Pinterest so I used it as my starting point and added my own touches to make it my own.

I used a metal clip from Basic Grey's Hipster collection as my metal accent.  I love how my page turned out and it felt great to create something.  I hope you will take some time to play along.  Make sure you link up your creation on the Little Red Wagon blog
