Sharing some Scrapbooking layouts.....

I have been loving these girlie layouts, pastels and doilies. Nothing new...because I tend to scrapbook girlie most of the time with having two girls. I am trying hard to finish the wedding album for Shelby and Scottie...taking me so long. I am also taking Maggie Holmes' new online class and loving it! I have done a few pages in my altered book and the cover. So much fun! I chose not to buy the kit and just use from stash. Here is what my cover of my book likes like.

Some new layouts....



I received my first kit from Studio Calico this month and I just love it! It was one of my Christmas presents - a subscription from SC. I have made three layouts so far and love all the different products, especially the wood veneer alphas...love! I have also started Project Life. My word for 2012 is, "Commitment" and I am already having trouble with PL. It's a lot of work! We will see.

Next month I am going to a weekend crop at my lss and I am looking forward to it. I rarely go to things like that as I never get anything done but it will be fun to be with friends. Did I forget to mention it is at the hotel in the Mall? So, shopping and breaks will be fun! lol

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!! I cannot believe 2012 is here! 2011 was a pretty good year. We celebrated our 25th anniversary and had a wonderful time in Boston and Cape Cod! Below is a photo of us taking on Cape Cod. I decided to make a layout and frame it in a Prima Frame for my bedroom. We changed the colors to whites/creams and I am loving the softness of our bedroom now.

I also have just got a subscription to Studio Calico Kits and I am very excited to get my first one starting this month! This year I also want to focus more on my camera and learn, learn, learn!! I received Lightroom 3 for my birthday and I am hoping to learn how to edit my photos more, as well as take better pictures.

Hoping everyone has a very blessed 2012!!

Two Daughter mini's side by side.....

I wanted to make a mini of each of my daughters using four of my favorite photos that I have taken of them in the last two years. I wrote verses/scriptures behind each page and in the envelope is a letter to each of them in their mini album. I used a lot of my scraps left over from recent things I created. The beautiful saying about daughters is a free download from, "Dandee Designs". These were such a pleasure to make as I love anything "girly"!! Thanking God big time for two beautiful daughters on the inside and outside.

Charlie and I leave soon for our 25th Anniversary Trip to Boston/Cape Cod/Martha's Vineyard!! I am so excited!!! It is all I think about. Praying for a wonderful time together and that my girls are fine while I am gone. lol Thank God for my mom who is staying at our house taking care of things.

Two mini albums I have been working on. The first is a Travel journal for our trip to Boston/Cape Cod for our 25th Anniversary! I don't want to forget a moment of it. We are so excited and have finalized our travel plans - yay!!! The second is the cover to a Christmas mini that I created for Scrappy Boutique - the best online and local scrapbooking store ever! I love that I get to design for them - they go to CHA and ALWAYS have the newest and best of everything! I will share the pages inside the Christmas mini sometime....but it is August still. lol

Simply Thankful......

Some more layouts for Scrappy Boutique! I had not designed with, "My Mind's Eye" or "We R Memory Keepers" lines for the store before and I really enjoyed these two so much. What beautiful colors! I picked up the products yesterday afternoon and managed to create the two layouts last night while watching the Red Sox beat Texas again! Yay!! Looking forward to working on my Christmas mini for the store tonight while watching them again tonight.

***On a side note, I was so surprised to see a comment from a friend, Debbie, from way back when I lived in upstate NY and we worked together and laughed all the time together too! I loved seeing your comment and would love to get in touch again. Been so long!!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week!

Sophie Marie and some projects too....

I love this sweet picture of Sophie that I took last week. I can't believe in a few months she will be 11 years old! We have had her since 6 weeks after she was born and she has been the most wonderful part of our lives. I never knew that I could love a pet so much and that she would be such a part of my heart. What a sweetie! I also found some photos of my girls that I took about 8 years ago that I loved and decided to make a wall hanging for my scrapbook room...loved when my girls were that young! Shelby comes home next week for a visit and we are all happy and excited! No school, no work....just fun play time!! I hope you have having a fabulous summer too!!

Summer layouts

Some summery layouts I made for Scrappy Boutique. Love the pretty colors in both of these. It is the start of summer here and my youngest, Chelsey, officially got her licence today! We are looking for a car for her now. I can't believe how time flies. Looking forward to summer, trips to the beach, Shelby coming home for a visit, and going to Boston and Cape Cod! So excited! I hope you all have a wonderful summer too!!
