my sweet Aimee and some more MME

Can you believe it?

I have actually been blogging almost every day lately.

It's been nice to have some down time to scrap and have those things to share with all of you. I mean, the twelve people who are still reading my blog ☺

Is anyone out there?

I know we get busy but hardly anyone comments anymore. I think in this fast-paced world we live in we are lucky to get to read blogs let alone comment on them. Feel free to comment here ☺

Anyway, I've had this picture of my Aimee for about 6 months now and finally got it scrapped- she is a sweetheart, a beautiful girl who doesn't have a volume knob- she is either on or off. There is no soft for Aimee. She is 100% or nothing. And we love her. She loves softball and hated gymnastics class- not as competitive as her older sister. She still sucks her thumb at night, makes friends wherever she goes, is taking her time with learning to read, is feisty and sweet all at the same time.

Here I've used more of the My Mind's Eye Cut & Paste collection- scrapping  just for fun.

The thing about scrapping "just for fun" for me is being able to use whatever I want. No restrictions, no worrying about which company's product I put on my page. I can mix it up however I want. Here, though, I did pretty much stick to the collection I was using but added in some Thickers from American Crafts. Because who can scrap without Thickers? They are my all-time favorite letter stickers and I use them (especially because I have way too many of them) whenever I can. 

I used lots of the embellishments from the collection and added bits of twine and little enamel dots. The star tape isn't from the Cut & Paste collection but it is from MME. From a boy collection, I think. Between MME and my tapes from Queen and Co. and Bella Blvd I have lots to choose from and use them on just about every page lately. 

What is your favorite manufacturer? 

Do you have a favorite type of embellishment?

I like so many of them, it's hard to choose just one. So, when I get the chance I try out different things. 

Have a great day- it is going to be a busy, back-and-forth day here.
