D is for... Die Cuts With a View!

The mid month prompt is up for Scrapbookers Anonymous' A to Z challenge and we're already to the letter D.  This one was a bit more challenging for me as I do not have many D manufacturers.  But I do have a lot of DCWV!  Here's my layout.
I used a kraft line from DCWV and some die cuts by SEI.  I've been doing a lot of fussy cutting lately, especially my pictures and I love how my fussy cut little Marin looks in this one.  Stop by Scrapbookers Anonymous to see what the rest of the DT created.  They really dug deep into their stashes for this one!

And I did something I rarely do... create a layout without a challenge in mind, and I did it twice.  Here is Gavin in his Halloween costume.  This is from the photo shoot that my friend Theresa recently did of the kids. A lot of what's on this layout is from October's Cocoa Daisy kit, but the base sheet isn't.  It's from Crate and I'm so glad I pulled it out to see if it matched.  I LOVE how this one turned out. Oh yeah and that tree, all fussy cut from Little Yellow Bicycle paper, then I inked around every piece. Am I crazy or what?  Yes, but aren't we all and the final look makes me happy!

The picture of this last layout is of Marin and me a few years back.  This was created from November's Cocoa Daisy kit with exception to the orange rumpled fabric, which is a Studio Calico Fabrip.  There's lots of Amy Tangerine American Crafts goodness in this kit!  And I LOVE Cocoa Daisys custom Dresden Quilt stamp!!!
Thanks for stopping by!!!

Fantastic layouts Lea! You are firing on all cylinders right now!! I am just loving all of these & the stash is absolutely awesome :)

hey Lea, when you use the resist paper try the distress ink by Tim Holtz ( applied with a sponge) as it gives a much more smoother and richer look than the using the sprays... in my opinion that is LOL !!!! I am going to do some more grungy ones using rusty hinge I adore that colour ... woohoo I feel a roll coming on !!! xo
