St Monica-St George Church on McMillan in Clifton Heights

I used the Creative Memories Sophisticate Monograms and Alpha's.  I purchased this kit with the overlay at a scrapbooking convention.  I have a stained glass window in my house so I knew I would use it, but I like it with these pictures of the inside of the church.  It is really beautiful and ornate.

Creative Memories Black & White Power Palette Layouts

Logan's concert was at St Monica-St George on McMillan so we walked to the concert.  I love walking in my neighborhood. 

These layouts use the Black & White Power Palette that was just discontinued by Creative Memories.  I used this palette a lot since Logan's violin and later orchestra dress code is white shirt and black pants.  Now you can purchase the Divine Power Palette that is black and white and BROWN!  When using the Black & White on a wedding album recently I kept switching to other papers to add some warmth to the layout so I think Divine will accommodate the lack of warmth in this palette.  It should be even better that just Black & White but I have not worked with it yet!

A technique I learned at a Quick Quotes class at Mega Meet in Michigan was to use a mat and brads to "hide" a picture under the picture like in this layout.  There is another picture under the pic on the upper right.  I still used brads in the same place on the left side picture to keep continuity.  I love the Swirly Monogram Alphabet from Creative Memories.

A product I greatly miss from CM is the pocket pages!  I always have memorabilia to add and the pockets were great!  Here, I have made my own "pockets".  A small one to hold the program on the left page and a page size pocket on the right to hold some 8.5x11 pages of Logan's accomplishments.  The Black & White Flowers are my favorite embellishment in this palette.

Spring Card

I started with some ribbon I purchased at Michael's, searched my stamps for some similar mushroom stamps.   I colored in the larger which was a clear stamp.  I embossed the green piece with a floral embossing folder in my collection.  I wanted to stamp the sentiment "spring has sprung" but after searching and searching I decided I do not own.  I have since found it at Michael's in the $1 supplies at the front of the store.

Girl pages with Creative Memories Cabana and more

I used the Creative Memories Perfect Fit Cabana for the sepia toned photos.  My sister took the pics, I just used them because I have to scrap something girly everyonce and a while.  Of course, I guess camo and tags on Morgan's page is not that GIRLY.  I love the kiss page of Briana.  Her shirt and the title read "Way sweeter than Chocolate"
