Moment Captured

it's the little things that matter most

watching airplanes November 30, 2009

Filed under: Layouts — Tanya @ 2:29 pm

Supplies used: Crate Paper patterned paper and die cut strip, American Crafts thickers

Did this for the monthly challenge for the 60 page club at Lovebug. The challenge was to create a layout related in some way to aviation or flying. Great excuse to get busy scrapping some of the pics we took this summer on one of our outings to the airport to watch all of the bombers and choppers landing and taking off. A busy fire season makes for a busy airport…and totally enthralled kids!


so cute November 29, 2009

Filed under: Layouts — Tanya @ 9:55 am

Supplies used: Scenic Route patterned paper and chipboard, American Crafts thickers and brads, Making Memories journaling spot, assorted buttons

This layout is based on sketch #29 at 52 sketches. There are times that I wish I had started scrapbooking earlier. I don’t have any pages like this of my oldest. Pages where it is more about who they are ‘right now’. Pages that talk about the funny little things he said or did. I have such a terrible memory for things like this. While in the moment I think I will remember forever, and then they move on to the next stage and I forget. This is why I scrapbook. To remember the little details about life that would otherwise be lost.


It’s friday… November 27, 2009

Filed under: Life — Tanya @ 11:20 am

and it’s been a busy week for me. I’ve been out of the house the last three nights in a row, plus have had company during the day almost every day too. Added to that are the three layouts that I had to finish on deadline this week…which I can’t share yet, but will soon! I am looking forward to having a relaxing weekend. I am going to go out this afternoon and do a bit of Christmas shopping while the older two are in school. There are some really good deals at Toys R Us right now, and I have done next to no shopping so far. Hopefully I can knock several people off my list 🙂

So, I opened up my email this morning to discover that I have been nominated for this Kreative Blogger award by Jillian, who has a fabulous blog called Welcome to Jillville. Thanks so much Jillian! Once the award is accepted, the nominee has to do the following:

So, here’s the part where I list seven interesting things about me…

* I have now been sitting here for 5 minutes trying to think up actual interesting things…and have now given up and you just get 7 random things 🙂

1. Every year I can remember in school, I was always the tallest girl in my class. You could always find me in the back row of school photos.

2. I actually read the directions before attempting something for the first time

3. My favourite meal is escargot, with lots of bread for dipping in all that garlic butter. Mmmmm…

4. I have been with my husband since 1995, married since 2001.

5. I don’t like the heat,unless I am at the beach.

6. There is no point in talking to me when I am reading a good book…I won’t hear you anyway.

7. I am fearless! Okay, that’s probably not true…but I don’t have anything that I would call a phobia anyway.  🙂

OK. Here is my list of nominations for Kreative Bloggers. Check them out!

family walk November 23, 2009

Filed under: Layouts — Tanya @ 10:48 am

Supplies used: My LIttle Yellow Bicycle patterned paper and clear cuts, American Crafts thickers, Shimmerz paint

For week #47 at 52 sketches. Fall is my very favourite time of year to be at the lake. It is a tradition in our family to all head out there for Thanksgiving. Mom cooks a big turkey dinner and we all just hang out and have family time. And usually the weather is gorgeous, so we can get out and spend some time in the back woods.

me now

Supplies used: Bo Bunny patterned paper and chipboard, Prima flowers, Imaginisce flowers, Doodlebug brad, American Crafts thickers, Making Memories ribbon, Bazzill brads

This is my layout for sketch #46 at 52 sketches. I need to add some journaling still, I guess. Every once in a while I grab the camera and tripod and take a few dozen pics of myself, trying to get at least one that I like. This was my fave out of the most recent bunch. It’s important to get out in front of the camera once in a while, usually I am always the one taking the pics!
