10/18/21 - "Elote Face"

Did you guess this layout woud be about Hamlet, just based on the title?

12x12 Traditional Paper Layout

"Elote Face"

Hamlet loves it when we buy him elotes from the neighborhood Elote Truck!

Elote: "The world 'elote' means 'corn cob' in Spanish, and Mexican Elote is grilled corn on the cob slathered in a mayo cream sauce and garnished with chili powder, cheese and lime."
We order Hamlet's w/out chili.

The pig embellishment was cut using my Sizzix Big Shot. 
I purchased the pig metal die 7 years ago from Amazon and this is the first time I ever used it!

I absolutely love how it came out!

10/09/21 - "Selfie 09 Sept 2016" / SOS Challenge

Joining in on the fun over at the "Scrap Our Stash" blog
Their current challenge is to scrap lift this layout and  must include Paint and/or Ink Splatters:

Here is my lift (12x12 Traditional Paper Layout):

These photos were e-mailed to me by Snapfish Photo as part of a "Memories from 5 Years Ago, This Week" e-mail.
I never scrapped them before and I like the photos so... here we are!

The coloring on the photos was an accident.
Though I am usually very OCD about checking my ink levels in my printer, I forgot to this time and of course the levels were low...causing the discoloration of the photos.
I didn't hate they way they came out though, so instead of printing another one, I just embraced it!

10/03/21 - RIP Ludo

As I mentioned a couple of blog posts ago, I had another Memorial layout to create.
Here is that layout
They're all difficult but this one was especially so...

Close-up of Journaling:

As the journaling states: Ludo was my husband's favorite CTPR pig and Ludo's passing was sudden and unexpected to everyone!
These factors made it extra tough to learn of his passing.

The journaling also makes reference to the fact that we were fortunate to meet Ludo.
Here is the layout I created (and shared previously) of that meeting.

Ludo will be missed!
