All I ask is for you to leave me a comment. I'd love to see the layouts you create with them. Email me a link to them or send a low resolution copy to my email: customscrapbooksbyanna(at)gmail(dot)com. Thanks and enjoy!

Much Scope For the Imagination

I know these berries offer "much scope for the imagination", to quote Anne with an E, but I'm kinda tired of them.

They get squished into the floor mat. I step on them. And yes, I'm tired of seeing these berries scattered all around the yard. Let's leave them for the birds, okay, kids?

You say, "Uh, Anna, I don't think they are reading this blog post. Maybe you need to go tell them in person."

But, but, I don't want them to stop playing house/hospital/restaurant! These Mountain Ash berries make great salads, medicine and even money!

I guess I'll just keep sweeping them up. Or get my hubby to. Or order the kids to do it. The latter would be best, I think.

Fat Little Tummy

I just love that middle pic on the right hand side of the first layout, where my little one is standing on the steps. The shorts are waaay to tight around his waist. That poor tummy! baby...isn't he adorable? The older two were most enthralled with the wave pool. I liked the water slides, but made sure I didn't go on a fast one. LOL I'm not that brave anymore. This layout is removed because it's getting published in the June issue of the Canadian Scrapbooking Magazine! (I got this news February 7, 2011)

Two layouts for my 2008 Memories Album.

My First Product Design

Maybe I'm crazy. There is so much gorgeous stuff out there for the digi scrapper, I can't even compete. But, that said, it's fun to create your own and then give away, I'm thinkin'. So here goes. My first rudimentary effort at textured canvas papers. Try them and see what you think of them.
