Croppin' Good Time

This past weekend I did some of the challenges for the Swing Into Spring crop over at Noel Mignon.  I love cropping with them.  It's always so laid back and just tons of fun!!!

This LO was a "cardstock only" challenge (no patterened paper, but we could use other embellies.)

These pictures were taken just the other day of Kessa.  I'm so glad she's getting over her "You can't take my picture!" phase!  lol  I think pretty much everything on this LO is from the Color Me Daisy Change of Heart kit (it's on sale for only $25.00 right now...that's a GREAT deal!!!)

The Core Impressions Jenni Bowlin cardstock from Core'dinations made this cardstock only LO really easy for me...and that's saying a lot because I love me some patterened paper!  lol

This one is simply for me but I really like the way it turned out.  I used my Martha Double Loop punch as a mask on the edge of this page and stamped on my naked chipboard letters with a houndstooth stamp from OA.  It's fast becoming one of my favorites!

So...here's the whole, simple LO.    I used a really light gray background and then spritzed it with Midnight Blue Glimmer Mist.

isn't my baby girl just too cute with that crooked little smile?!?

Beautiful layouts Gina!! I looooove all the misting on that second one. The colors of the layout and the photo are so pretty together!

You have two adorable girlies. I love the layouts and the misting, I've been loving playing around with that too lately.

Miss you!

Beautiful LO's! Love the colors in both of them.

Love these so much, and as a side note: I can't believe how much Grace is growing! She looks so big! What is happening to our babies?!

Fabulous layouts. I love the button border in the first and the pleating and colors in the second. :)
