All is Bright

Sorry I have not been posting as regular as normal lately.  This month has been way busier than normal with 4 kids and tons of Christmas activities at school & church I don't know if I'm coming or going LOL.  I am enjoying the time with them!

I wanted to share with you a fun layout using the December Main Kit & Embellishment Add-on kit from Citrus Twist.  This kit is now sold out.

For this layout I took white cardstock and tore it down the side.  I then cut some off the edge so the red paper would fit down the middle.   

Thank you so much for all that stop by and leave some love!!  I love to read them!

1st Trophy

Today I need to work on "just for fun" layout.  So I grabbed some supplies I had been wanting to use and went to town.  I had so much fun just scrapping!  I ended up using some of my Ormolu flapper and flairs, some Sodalicious wood arrows, and some papers I had in stash. 

The journaling tells the story of how excited my son was to get his first trophy.  He couldn't stop starring at it and he was spit shinning it lol.

2013 Calendar ~Elle's Studio

For this months design gallery over at Elle's Studio, I created this cute 2013 calendar.  When I was in Georgia I went to an Archiver's (wish we had one around here) and I bought a cute 7 Gypsies tray.  When I was trying to come up with an idea of what to make I realized the tray had 12 slots perfect for making this calendar using the new 2013 Calendar tags.

Thank you so much stopping by!!

My Artist

I created this layout from the November kit over at Gossamer Blue.  I also used some of the new Heidi Swapp mist.  These are fabulous!  I love the metallic look they have!  This layout was such a fun one to create.  I got the inspiration for the circle from the new Sanctus Real CD.

Noah created this cute picture of him spelling out his name with crayons and I had to capture it!  I was so impressed he thought to do that.

 Close up:

30 Day's of List Gossamer Blue

Hello and Happy Friday!!  Today I wanted to share with you my complete mini album I did for the 30 Days of Lists!  I used the beautiful Gossamer Blue Kit to complete this entire album!!  The only thing I used from my stash was doilies and a few little glossen bags!  This kit had so many fun embellishments and papers it wasn't hard to do 30 pages!  I will say the reason I created this mini album is to pass it down to my kids and they can see all about me.  I did go back through and use my AC date stamp on each page so they can the date. I also plan to add a few more things to each list as I think of them.


I plan to add some of my favorite picture into the white envelope. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!!  I know this was alot of pictures but I wanted you to see it fully!
