It's been way too long...

My last post on this little old blog of mine was back in August!!! Yikes! That was the last time that I scrapped too. The December Daily and Card Classes began yesterday over on the forum, and I had cleaned up my scraproom a few days ago so that I could be ready to scrap again. So, here's the DD/Card kit that I've been playing with...

Such a jam packed with fun kit!!! I've been having a blast playing. It feels so good to be creating again. This will be my first year doing a December Daily. I'm also planning on making and mailing my Christmas Cards this year. So far I've gotten 2 cards done (I did actually do 3, but then realized that I'm a bit dyslexic and spelled something wrong - Christmas) I will retake my pics of my cards to share with you tomorrow. So here's the cover of my December Daily album....

I'm so happy with the way this turned it!!!! I've also finished the base for page 1

I know it's a little bare, I've ordered my pics of our Elf on the Shelf "Bobby" to attach to this page, I'll share the updated version once it's completed. I'm really loving working on this project and I can't wait to have it completed....

That's all for me tonight, I'll be back tomorrow to share my cards and page 2 of my December Daily album.

First Day of School...

My kids went back to school last week, and like I do, I took lots of pictures before they left. I was so excited that I ran back inside after they left to load them onto the computer and take a peek. {enter sad music} I didn't even think to check my camera settings before I started snapping away....what I got was a lot of blurred and out of focused pictures : ( I was able to save one of them (at least it's one that they were both in) and I played with it in Picassa, so here it one and only back to school picture of my babies......

How sweet are they??? Love them to bits!!

Good morning everyone!
I'm so glad that it's Friday!
I'm also glad to have my tax seminars behind me......those were fun :)
Hopefully I don't have to go to another one until next year!

I wanted to share a couple of layouts that I finished this week. Life's been so crazy around here, that this is the first chance I've had to post them.

The first one is a layout from our trip to the pumpkin patch at Poppell Farms in Odum Georgia this October. I used the Autumn Splendor Kit and Add-On from Scraptastic Club.

I so love those rub-ons from Fancy Pants!

The second page is a Christmas one from 2008......I'm so behind :)

I am planning on a scrappy weekend! So, hopefully I'll have lots to share next week!
Have a great weekend!

christmas joy.....

Hello everyone.......I've got a houseful of family in town visiting for the weekend. But I wanted to pop in to share a layout that I did using the Naughty or Nice? Kit and Add-On from Scraptastic Club.

The pics are from 2007 (yikes....) and are of Bailey opening up her Dancing Dora that Grandma and Grandpa got her for Christmas. She was so excited! I just love the look on her face in these pics!

Have a great weekend!
