I would like to let you all know that I will not be posting for the rest of this week but will hopefully be able to do so next week. Michael is still not up to par and it has really caught up with me, I am truly exausted and all symtoms from my condition are at it's worst. I had hoped I had enough sceduled beforehand to keep me going but that was last weeks posts. I will try and do my best to visit you all. I am going to miss this so much but I am doing what is best for me right now. I would really appreciate all positive thoughts and prayers. Life can be so hard but "this too shall pass"
Hugs to all

X-pression scrapbooking layout "Fussy Cut"

Happy Sunday!!!!
 


Today I am showing you a layout I made for a challenge over at "Do More With Less"  "Fussy cutting your photos and journalling with Lizzy Hill!"
Most of you know I rarely do scrapbooking layouts but I was truly inspired by Lizzy, it is really worth your time to look at some of her amazing layouts!!

I did a layout of my oldest son Ryan, he is a total riot. He is one of my favorite people to be around and I am so excited he will be home from University next week!!!!!  Ryan made it a challenge at times to take a serious picutre as you can see in this layout, lol
 
OK so this is his school photo, to start he doesn't wear glasses..LOL, they were borrowed from a friend... I laughed thinking the camera man thought this acceptable, hahahahaha.. I could only imagine the time he had with Ryan and his friends, they all did something similar.
 
 
Another put on, hehe! He is pretending to be frustrated with his game, I really think he could have went into acting.  You have to enlarge the picture to really see this expression.
 

I used Tim Holtz grunge letters for the title and the embellishments are from my stash
 


The blue string is from a place mat I got from Bi-Rite a few years ago, it started to unravel and it makes THE perfect string to tie... it doesn't slip or try to get away on you... as you can see I used it all over this layout..I will be using it much more , reminds me of a bigger version of scrapper's floss with a crimp to it.
 
 
 
Have a fantastic day!!!
