12 tags of 2016 : February

with 30 minutes to spare I got the February tag done 

Tim's Tags for February was Monoprint with Embossed texture paste.

I don't love how the tag turned out but the good thing about 
these tags is learning & trying new techniques.

Layouts for Crop Part 1

here are a few layouts from my crop 
this past weekend.

This layout I entered in a Pet Contest & it WON! 
Yeah - this is our puppy last summer.  He is only 2 but so grey.

Taylor's grade 8 grad 2 page spread.
it was in her gymnasium & outside with the sun going down on us so the 
pictures were no the best, so I had to get a bit creative.

This was Tay last spring / winter ! 
It was taken at the polar Bear Plunge.
The slogan is freezing for  a reason.
All of the proceeds go to Local Special Olympians.
Way to go Tay - need to do a bit of journaling on it.

Hope you enjoyed them - more to come this week .

Got to spend the day Cropping with my Scrappy friends!

It was awesome!

It was a tropical these so as always we got all decked out!
I love that we are all such good sports & like 
to theme it up!

I love my friends cause I get to me my silly, crazy self - 
they laugh at me, poke fun at it - then they run with it
and make it an entire new joke for another day!

I will divide up my layouts to keep the posts shorter!

It was Alex's 5th Birthday Party.
We had it at a local park - it was Ninja Training.
The journaling is hidden behind the card that says cake.

See the rest of my layouts that will be posted through out the week -
