I Scrapped!

Even though I feel somewhat blah today, I did some scrapping. I am blah because I am aching due to the weather. I am not depressed, well not very, just a little.
I asked my friend if she had any photos that she would like me to scrap for her. She had started to scrap but gave it up. She gave me all her supplies last summer. So anyway she gave me a handful of photos and I scrapped a bunch of them earlier and gave to her. Today I did six more layouts. It was a real thrill doing them. Not knowing what she would like or not like. But knowing that she is even poorer than I am, if that is possible, I put my best into every layout. I have blurred the photos naturally because I don't have her permission to post them online.
Here are the ones I have finished so far. For some of them I won't give any title because it would mean giving names.
This is my first Christmas layout this year and I enjoyed getting out my Bo Bunny paper again. Also, I have had those wire embellies for a few years and just hung onto them because I liked them so much but thought this was the perfect use for them.

I love chatterbox, it seems that no matter which paper you use, you can mix and match any of it. I found the perfect scrap of lace to use on this one. I had almost thrown it away because it was only about 3 inches but decided to keep it anyway, sure glad I did because it was perfect.

I am not sure where I got these black and white papers, I know I have had them for a long time.. I think I got them the very first time I went to Hobby Lobby. I think they look great for this wedding layout, and my precious gemstone flourish which I was saving for just that special layout.. this was special enough I think :) Love the way this one turned out.

This is a photo of baby with his daddy.. I loved using the Cogsmo papers here. Dug out some matching buttons and even dug really deep and got some fibers that I had packed away to give it a bit more humphhh.

Okay so when it comes to scrapping a kitty, you won't catch me sleeping LOL. Seems that all my friends know I am a cat lover and I would guess that two out of every three RAKS I get has at least one cat thing in it. So I tend to get a little carried away and have to severely limit myself.

Oh did I have fun doing this one!!! I love circles, can you tell! I gotta get me a circle punch for sure cause tracing and then cutting all those circles are for the birds, my fingers started to cramp. Dag gone it all I have to get a new foot pedal for my sewing machine too, either that or unpack my good machine until my sister comes to get it. LOL Although if I unpack it and start using it, with my luck I would break it and I have it sold to her already.. and that is a LOT of money. But I am rambling now.. I do love the sewing on my layouts and so far I have had to do the faux stitching because my foot pedal wont work :(

Okay another one I had some fun with. I really loved working with these Whoop De Doo Papers, they have a wonderful quality feel to them. Once again I dug into some of my precious stash and dug out a couple of my Petaloo blooms for this layout. Now I treasure my Petaloo's because they are really hard for me to get but for this layout, nothing else would do LOL.

Great layouts! I love those wire accents on the Christmas ones. Even without the pictures, they were great to look at.
