Winter, Summer AND Fall!

Check out the view from my scrap room today. YIKES!!! Snow!!! I sure hope it doesn't stick around for Halloween!

For my last page at Ally Scraps this month, I scrapped these pictures from our last summer vacation. I used a mixture of Jillibean Soup and Scrap Within Reach . The brads and chipboard letters are from my stash.

Have I told you how much I love Scrapbooks Etc. Quick Pages? I love that I can cram a bunch of photos together in a streamlined collage. :) Perfect for vacation pages like this one. :)

Thanks again to Cathy, Dana and everyone else over at Ally Scraps for having me for the month! I had a great time! :)


Now for some bittersweet news. :( This page is my last page for Urban Anthology as a Design Team member. Kari has decided to close the kit side of her business to concentrate on her Scrapbook Retreats. (You can read the official announcement here on the Urban Anthology blog .) The store, blog and forum will remain open, so please stop in if you are feeling the need for inspiration. :)

Her last kit, Snowed Inn, will be up for sale and shipping shortly. I grabbed one for myself, so you just may see a couple more pages from me, but not officially as a DT memeber.

I created this page using the October 2009 "It Leaves You Breathless" kit. I added the letter stickers, buttons, and blue flower from previous Urban Anthology kits. The paper leaves are painted with a wash of Spiced Cider Blingz by Shimmerz Paints. The ink misted in the background is actually Walnut Ink . . . yep the kind from six years ago. Normally, I would use my Spritz's, but I didn't want a Shimmer effect on the background this time around, so I used my Walnut Ink.

I'll leave you with a peek of Urban Anthology's last kit, Snowed Inn. (Full reveal will be up Nov. 1st)

Thanks, Kari, for a great experience! I wish you all the best and continued success on your retreats!



  1. These pages are absolutely fabulous! Great job!

  2. A winter wonderland!

    You are such an inspiration to us with your awesome colorful layouts...but then you know that...don't you?:D

  3. Just once.....could you make an ugly LO?! Seriously......your LO's are just GORGEOUS!!! I just want to stare at them, memorize them, so I can get some of that creativity you have.....through osmosis or whatever! : )

  4. Okay...so these layouts are beautiful! Did you create the collage on the first one just by cutting to fit or did you order the collage from somewhere? Would love to try this on one of my layouts. I really love the effect!

  5. Egads, that's a lot of snow! We had some a couple weeks ago but it melted before it even stuck on the ground.

    Love your LOs...thanks for inspiring!
