This layout was made from an insipration photo on Papercraft Star. Colors are white, red and a touch of black dragonflies. I used photos of my husband taken in 1994 on a trip to Nashville. Being a race fan and car lover he was happy to make a pit stop at Indy.

My Favorite Toy

I made this layout for a challenge at These are a Few of My Favorite Things. The current challenge is toys. This once fuzzy bunny was an Easter gift from my dad to my mom the year before I was born, so it's been with me my entire life and currently resides in the top dresser drawer.

Zach's cake

I've had the Pikachu cardboard hat for a couple months. When I saw at my grandson Zach's birthday party that his cake had pokemon figures an idea was formed. I cut off the "arms" that hold the hat on and glued on the photos. Added six buttons for his age.

Me and Dad

Here is a layout I made to remember my dad. I tried to make it masculine by using mostly brown, but my grandson thinks the flowers make it "girly". The cardstock is from Target, the patterned paper is unknown and the flowers are prima.
