Yup, I'm the Grandma!

First off, happy hump day!!  I have always wanted to do a layout of my own with 5x7 sepia prints!  One of my best friends does photography on the side, and she has now become Khloe's personal photographer lol!!  So, one day last fall, Barbie and I stole Khloe away for a surprise photo shoot!  I asked her if she would take one of me with Khloe.  I'm usually the one taking photos around the house, so I don't have many of myself with her (thinking to myself that I need to change that!).

This two page "Grandma" layout is designed from a BUNCH of layouts I've looked at.  That's the nice thing about this "hobby", you can take inspiration from here and there and make something your own.

So here it is!!  The flowers are from Prima, they key and bingo card are from Tim Holtz, the "grandma" is from the cricut heritage cart and the center doily and hearts are from the Close To My Heart Artiste cart.  I can't remember where the flourishes came from and the ribbon is from my stash!!  Oh, and the paper on the bottom of the layout was sprayed with leather glimmer mist to age it!

I would love to hear from you!! Just leave a comment below!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!



ps - if you notice things coming and going off my blog, don't be concerned!!  I am in the process of "redecorating" and fine tuning!!  Enjoy!!


  1. The pictures of you and Khloe are priceless!! I like the combination of the soft blues, cremes and browns with just enough embellishments to add polish ... without distracting from the awesome pictures. Nice job.... Kerry

  2. Thanks kerry!! I have the blizzard layouts to post and the christmas tree layout! I can't wait to see what those layouts inspire!!
