strap yourself in . . . i have lots of LO to share!

Yes i know it is late but here are some Lo and an inspirations book i created at the remember when retreat last weekend.

I love this little inspiration book. I have embellished the cover inside cover and the back and the back cover.

Close up of the coverThe inside cover where i will copy down quotes (bit blury...sorry) The back inside cover where i will write title ideas and sketch Lo ideas. I thought it would be an easier reference to set it up this way so i can find the quotes and title ideas seperate.

This Lo came to be at about 3 in the morning when i was looking through the autumn leaves TEXT book...its so awesome and inspiring. Im really into Lo's with clean simple lines at the moment.I love this pic of coby at the beach toes in the sand.
Another pic from the beach this is of coby and jamie(jody's son) Once again a simple Lo and this was the 1st Lo i created for the weekend. It was so good having jody's sewing machine there it is such and awesome machine that i used it on almost all of my LO.
I just love this LO used the junkits extreme boy transperancy ribbon and one of the tiles (thanks for sharing jody) I had wanted to use the heidi journelling spots like this from the moment i saw them i was just waiting for a photo to match and this one surely does.
The title reads....I LOVE YOU everyday.

Sorry about the photo of this one i accidently erased the better one. You can't really see all of the doodling on the Lo but i drew the arrows and he circles around the photos and used coloured pencils to colour it in. LOVE these photos of coby. I used american crafts foam thickers for the YOU and 4 they look so good im totally addicted to buying them.
I know a girl LO! I got a friend to email me photos of his baby girl Zayah she is so cute. I really enjoyed creating this Lo and the Heidi swapp Lge photo corner just makes it.
Another Lo of zayah. Wendy from Paper doll gave me these papers on the day before i left for the retreat a just had to use them with the photo's of Zayah. they are all double sided and there are 4 ranges with about 8 papers in each range. they are EK success ...stacy claire boyd and there are also some awesome green, blue and brown papers in the series too. I layered the flowers once i mounted them on chipboard, a bit of sewing, many many diamontes and lot's of scalloped edges. Love the heidi damask sticker and the lil davis chip frames.
I also created a card with some of tthe left overs. Wendy and paper doll also gave me the buttons to use they are so sweet. Love the chipboard butterfly from deluxe designs (plain Jane's). I am also very addicted to the carolees creations letter stickers they are so convenient to use.

So all in all the weekend was very productive.Ill post more Lo for the 2nd fireside crafts Kit take a look the link is in the side bar >
