New stuff

Here are my latest creations. Today is Sharons birthday (Happy Birthday Sharon). For those of you who dont know, she is the owner of HSS!!! She Rocks. I made this card for her!

This is for Denises scraplift challenge over at HSS. I chose to scraplift Ania. Loved her layout. I used some older papers on this one, but I still like them! (SEI)

This was made for Kathis card challenge at HSS. I also am making this for the card swap I joined at RMH.

As usual, I hope you are having a great day! Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Crafts Toot!

I got an email today from Paper Crafts saying they want two projects for their Holiday Cards & More, Vol. 3 book. I am so excited!!! This is a first for me with Paper Crafts! Thanks for letting me share! Have a great day!!!

Upload day (Finally LOL)

Yay, its finally upload day at HSS. No gallery problems today.
This first layout is me and my dh. We had these pics taken in November. Its been a long time since we've had a picture of just the two of us. I made this for my All About Me book. I used the Scenic Route Loveland Collection.

These pictures are from this last summer. I took the boys to the pool and we had fun. I was trying to get some candid shots and therefore got Tylers back and the side of Brady. Oh well. Tyler is playing under the thing that shoots water in the first picture. I used Autumn Leaves Mod paper for this layout.

I stepped out of my box for this layout. I typically do one or two photos. I decided I didnt want to have a whole bunch of layouts about one event so I put all the pictures on one page. Not sure about this one yet...what do you think? Good or bad? I definately like the stickers, the rest is pretty simple.

If you would like to see all the items I used for these layouts, check out my gallery in the store. If you click on the layout it will show you the products I used that are sold in the store. Thanks for stopping by. Leave me a comment so I will know you were here!

Older layouts

Well, the gallery at HSS had some technical difficulties so the upload was postponed until next Tuesday (the 22nd). I decided that since I cannot share my upload yet that I would share some older layouts that are some of my favorites. I made sure to pick one of each of my children.
This first layout is my oldest son. He idolizes a kid named Cole Abbott, who is like family but not blood related. Cole was drafted by the Mets and Brady wants to be just like him. I lifted the design for this layout from Jill-in-Canada.

This layout is my youngest son. He always volunteers to help me make dinner. I used a Becky Fleck sketch to create this layout. I really like how it turned out.

This is one of my twins. I fell in love with the Scenic Route paper and a layout that Dawn McD made. I asked her if I could lift it and she said sure. This is my version and Im really pleased with how it turned out.

This one is my other twin. Hes really young in this picture (1 year old). Sad to say, this is the age Im currently at on scrapping for his (and his twins') book. I really need to catch up. They are 11 years old now.

Thanks for stopping by. Hopefully nothing will happen next week and Ill be able to share my upload. Stay tuned...

Cousins layout

I was in the mood to scrap again last night. I created a couple of layouts. I think Im going to hold on to the other one for a DT upload next month. If I change my mind I will share later.
I ordered the Basic Grey Mellow Collection. I thought it would go perfect with some pictures we had taken in November. I LOVE this picture of my kids with their cousins. The first four on the left are mine. I lifted the design for this layout from Kelly Goree. Hope youre having a wonderful day. More layouts coming on Tuesday.

Happy Friday!

I just had to come post and share my excitement. I got my goodie box from Paper Trends today for the Dec./Jan. issue. and it Rocks!!! But the part I was excited to share was the "from the editor" page in the issue. Tammy had emailed me back when I sent my projects in and told me she liked one of my projects, but I had no idea she would mention me in the editor's note. (I think you can click on the image and see it bigger)
Well, I hope you are having a great day! Tuesday is upload day at HSS so I will be sharing my creations on my blog then!

Dates to Remember book

I guess Toni is tired of just seeing pics of my kids and has requested that I share some more paper craft stuff LOL (Just kidding Toni *wink*). I did make some other items in Dec. I entered them in the contest at RMH. You can see them in my gallery there.
Anyway, I made this birthday reminder book. Ive been getting lots of scrapping done over my Christmas Break. All of my upload is ready for HSS (Upload day is Jan. 15) I will share those items here once I upload at HSS. I made this book using Crate Paper Brunch Collection. It was lots of fun.

Thanks for Stopping by! Have a great day!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you had a fun and safe New Year's Eve. We hung out at home with our kids. We played games, ate, and toasted in the New Year with sparkling apple cider.
Here's a picture of my kids right when it changed to 2008!
