 hello to all and a big welcome to my new followers.
i sincerely appreciate you.
our MPS project for this month is layouts...yeap! you know i am not too experienced with this part of crafting, lol-------- so please, considered yourself warned. (wink-wink)
it took me longer to find a photo i wanted to work with than the layout itself, go figure :)
i will explain the photo at the end of the post.

Boy Oh Boy! we are in TROUBLE
8.5" x 11"
sometimes it is time consuming for me go through all the carts to find a "perfect" image so i work with whatever "catches" my eyes first, unless i have something specific in mind.
in this case i started with accent essentials, which is the first cart showing up in my gypsy, :P
the white scalloped background is image#47, using shift and resized to a "forgotten size"--hehe, but i know it is less than 8.5x11, lol. i did not save the file and now i am in trouble :(
the mats where i adhered the pic, are also from accent essentials, image #48--in three different sizes.

i love how i did the clouds. they are from create a critter, image#11 using shift and creative feature layer 2 and embossed with the tim holtz "cracked" embossing folder. the sentiment on the star is from
MPS clear stamps set called "Boy Crazy". 
i love this set because i have a boy and also because we have lots of boys in the family.
 ok..the socks are here, rotfl. they were my husband's favorite and he did not want to get rid of them. i took this picture because i said to him that "i will scrap them one day" and here they are, in all their glory, ;p
the socks are long gone now and i am so very happy about it. ;p

the arrow is from accent essentials, the "hearts" and the "trouble" word and the "banner" were cuts i already had that never made it before ;p
i finally found some twine/hemp and added to the banner.

the "we r in" are rub-ons.
and as you see i outlined most of the layout and i even used some stickles.

hope you like it and have mercy with your comments, lol. i do hear a lot about the "rule of three" where you are suppose to "guide the eye" when looking at layouts. i do not know if i succeed, but i did try, hehe.

well, this is all for now. 
and no, i still haven't finished the album. boo to me. i will tough.

love you all and if you have time or should i say "make time" to
stop by "my pink stamper site"
to enjoy all the amazing projects my team mates have made just for you. :)

have a great weekend.
i have yard work to do for the love of gardening.


  1. Awesome layout, Agnes!! :)

  2. Love your LO Agnes. Very creative, and great colors. I really had to laugh at the entire idea behind it because I can relate. You should do more LO because you totally rocked this:)

  3. I love your layout!! So much fun :)

  5. Agnes, I had a good laugh with you this morning...hehe... I think your LO looks fantastic. Very Creative. I bet your hubby is excited to have them put to good use after all...hehehe.

  6. Thank you Ags for the chuckle. I love the story that goes with the layout. Very fun! You know, you can shoot ME an email anytime too. LOL! But seriously, its so nice to have you pop in and check on me. I am dealing with a terrible head cold at the moment, and the 'rest' is just hanging in the balance for good measure. :) You know how I like to keep life interesting and all that. Huge hugs to you, Kris

  7. Agnes I loved your LO. It really made me smile. :) Great job on it! I'm w/ you, LO's are definitely not my forte'. :D


  8. Too funny, Agnes! LOVE your layout (especially the clouds) and the bright colors are fab! Only a man could have a fave pair of white socks, LOL. Hilarious! xxD

  9. So cute!!! What a way to remember & "tease" a little.
    Love it,

  10. Well, I think you did a fabulous job :) So glad you took that picture while you could, you didn't want to pass up that memory!! I love the clouds too, I think Create A Critter has the BEST clouds of all the cartridges!!

  11. Awesome job Agnes. I love your LO! The bright colors contrasting with the white really makes it pop! Hugs- Glora

  12. Agnes,
    For not making many layouts, you did a great job! I love how you pieced every thing together. Of course I had to laugh at the picture. Great layout to remember those favorite socks with.

    Simple Creations

  13. Love the layout and the story behind it is so familiar! I think men and boys get more attached to their clothes then women do. Of course if we get rid of ours we get to go shopping. LOL

  14. Fun layout...I love the story behind it :)

  15. I don't know why you are warning everyone! You did awesome with this challenge! I laughed the second I saw it on MPS because I can relate to the socks deal. I'm so glad to know my husband isn't the only one to have sock attachments! Your LO is awesome too! I love the details!! I don't worry about rules when I scrapbook. I do what I want, when I want, and I put as many or little number of things/pictures as I want to on it! It's your memory and this is a fabulous way to remember it! I hope your husband didn't mind thousands of women laughing about his socks today..hehe! Great job Agnes!

  16. very creative Agnes -- I just would not have been able to pull this off as wonderful as you have. :)

  17. Oh, this is so fun! Great story, great picture, fun layout! TFS!
