I would just like to take a moment and wish everyone a safe and happy holiday. I love this time of year, the joy, the wonder and the excitement. We are off to Gatlinburg to spend Christmas there with family. I hope everyone enjoys the day and remembers the reason for the season. Merry Christmas and God Bless you all!!! Enjoy your time with family and friends.
These are some more layouts I have done over the past few days. I have finally had a chance to scrap again and it feels so good. I have gotten 7 done in a couple of days and I have a few more that I will get loaded as soon as I finish them. Peebles Inc pp. Making Memories rub on white letters, Heidi Swap rhinestone circle, doodlebug alphas. What am I? A Scary Dragon of course! Is
what Patrick would say anytime someone commented on his costume. He got so upset anytime someone thought he was a dinosaur. The second one is of a friend of mines little girl. From a photo shoot at Christmas last year. KI Memories lace cardstock...I LOVE this stuff!!!! Upsy Daisy pp from paperpospicles.com I did this layout for the December Contest at Paper Popsicles. Everything is from Paper Popsicles. This is from our trip to Day out with Thomas. Basic Grey pp, Heidi Swapp black alphas, Doodlebug sugar coated alphas, KI Memories stickers. This one is from our trip to Destin. On the way home we came through PC so we could go to the aquarium. All papers and buttons are from a kit at Scrapdango.com
These are a few of the pages I have done with the wonderful box of goodies that Melissa at Paper Popsicles sent me for the Guest Designer spot for December...
If you have never checked out Paper Popsicles you should. Melissa has some great prices and such wonderful kits every month. http://www.paperpopsicles.com/
Everything was in this kit except for the buttons, brads, thickers, ribbon and the grungeboard swirl!!! I am having such a fun time playing with these goodies. This is Patrick's first Easter portrait. It is still my favorite photo I think...I love his concentration. This is my nephew, Carsyn. Can you tell he enjoyed his first birthday cake? Patrick again! This was his second Easter.
First off I would like to put the word out there about a friend that I meet through Paper Popsicles, a wonderful kit club with a really great message board. I am proud to say that I knew her before she becomes famous. Sheila has followed her dream and made it a reality. She designs and makes her own acrylic stamps. You should go check them out at Thats Jazzy Stamp Dreams.
Or you can find her designs at Paper Popsicles. They are so cute, I can't wait to get my hands on some of them.
Wow, I don't even know where to begin about how busy the last few weeks have been. The Sunday after thanksgiving (25th) Patrick and I flew to Knoxville to visit with my aunt who is not doing so well. We stayed for 5 days and it was so nice to be able to spend time with family that we haven't seen in awhile. Even if it was under sad circumstances. Since we have been home we have finally gotten the house decorated for Christmas, and have made and painted ornaments twice, once with our cousins and the other time with playgroup. We have had our Christmas parade, Christmas photo shoot, and Victorian Christmas at Landmark Park. It is really cool like a step back in time. The kids made ornaments, a small broom of pinestraw and a stick (but it is so cute), a tin punched lid ( I actually held a nail and let Patrick hammer, I must be nuts...lol, but he never hit me so it was all good). It was a lot of fun we will do it again for sure. I have also been trying to get things together for our trip to the mountains for Christmas. I can't wait for this trip, our family and my cousin, LaShelle and her family will be spending Dec. 22-26 in the mountains. I have gotten some holiday decorations made and a couple of layouts. I hope to be able to post some soon. Since I haven't actually posted any scrappy stuff in awhile. I hope everyone has a wonderful and magical Christmas!!!
