Sausan Designs and Pencil Lines

So i have been scrapbooking like crazy lately.I don't know what it is,maybe it's the weather?

Yeah,we have had sun the last couple of day's!Still cold though,and i have seen snow and ice...But still when i get up and i see the sun,i just feel so HAPPY.Can't wait for Spring and Summer,and not to forget Easter!

I came across this picture of Julian and me where he is only 1 day old.He was the most beautiful baby(to me...) and i was seriously on cloud 9.Can't believe it's almost 5 years back that i gave birth to my first child...I feel old,lol!!

The picture really matched the colors of the new Sausan Design paper,so i just had to scrap this picture with the cute Love Generation Love paper.I also used the fantastic stamps,retro frames and bubbly borders.The frames and borders already look like they are stitched but i wanted to add some " real" stitching too.Those frames are fantastic btw,i think you will see them on many more of my projects.

I decided to use the sketch 177 from the Pencil Lines blog this week.They all went for the romantic style so i wanted to make something " cool" .I distressed the paper with Gesso,blue ink,distress ink and walnut ink(spray).I stamped for the first time in months,fun!And recently i like to burn stuff.My paper and embellishments giving them and old/grunge look.Please be careful not to set your house on fire,like i almost did.I have some big black stains on my Orange carpet now... :)I also have some sneaks to show.I actually made my very first Christmas layout a few day's ago.Don't know why,but i never liked making Christmas layouts...Which is strange because i LOVE Christmas.I think the papers are too...busy and Christmasy.lol I guess that's why i only used Christmas cut outs and no Christmas paper for this layout.And my new favorite layout...Only a sneak,but sigh...I REALLY love how this one turned out.So whimsical...I did some thrift shopping today.Nothing much but i will show you my finds tomorrow.Including this very cute umbrella for only 50 cent!This weekend i am going to the first carboot sale of the year,yay!

Unfortunately my laptop is not working at the moment so i guess i have to spend my money on fixing that,boehoeee. :(

I will leave you with two pictures of my boy's.No photoshop here,so this will have to do for now!They look like me don't you think? :) And what's life without a little smooch now and then?Happy Scrapbooking!
