Inspire Me Tuesday...

Today we are doing projects from something that inspired us. Well....I got a new toy...that was my inspiration...lol! Wanna see? I'm super excited about it, been wanting one for awhile now and finally got it! Here's my new Canon Selphy cp900!

Isn't it cute?! Now I can print all my cell pics so easily...and all my Instagram pics! I got it from HSN. This is what inspired me to print some of my latest cell pics for my Project Life book. So let's get going.

Here is the layout I did using pics of the grandbabies playing in the backyard. 

I really like how true the colors are. Very nice quality...and so easy! You see the blue square? Well, all that in the bottom of their pool is sand!!! Yes, they got in the pool, into the sandbox, back into the pool...and on and on! What a mess! But, they had a blast and that's all that matters. I used several MCT dies and stamps. The papers are from my PL system. 

I'm telling you, the sand was plastered!!! Sand everywhere you can imagine...and yes they ate some too! Look at Karson, those eyes of his melt my heart! Love the camera die and those arrow stamps! See the little tab die? So perfect! The "PLAY" card is from the Silhouette store.

And, not to be outdone, is Aleida! She loves her sandbox! See the Teeny Tag dies at the top? Made a banner using them. I left plenty of spots to add my journaling later. Emma's dies for doing PL layouts are great! So easy to use for everything! And I wasn't much of a scrapper before she invited me to be a part of her DT. Now I'm beginning to love it!

So, here's what I used. Visit Emma's store and start collecting her things so you can create amazing things!

It's All About You Stamp Set
Camera Shy Stamp Set
Tab Notes Stamp Set
Things I Love Stamp Set
You Are Here Stamp Set

So...I think that's it! Pull out what you have and work on preserving life's memories. I'm glad I'm at least doing something for my grandkids, cause I didn't do my own, lol! Happy crafting!

  2. OMG your LO is amazing and so stinkin' cute. Your little kiddos are so precious gosh I remember those days thank goodness my 7-1/2 yr old granddaughter still loves to play in the sand her mom & I are always right there with her. You are right who cares as long as they are having a gr8 time. Thanks for sharing not only your amazing LO but your precious grandchildren's pics and the precious story that goes with. I love it.
    You really showed some fantastic ways to use Emma's goodies.

  4. So glad you are loving scrapping and you will have fun with your new toy taking and printing lots of pictures. So cute the pictures are. Having fun is more important than the mess. Can you ever play in sand and not have a mess? It is always in their clothes and hair :D Too soon those times will be gone but captured in your fun pages. Great job!
