Seems kinda crazy to posy something about Christmas already but I just had to share!  My partner and I have bout a new house and we are going to celebrate Christmas at our house this year!  I was playing with my cricut and these were a few ideas I had for putting at everyone's table setting!  I am not done creating yet wait till you see the table crackers I am going to make the kids are very excited about filling them with goodies!
This would fit an After Eight perfectly!

FUN LOVE with my kids....picking berries

This has got to be one of my most random pages EVER!  This is my take on Challenge #10 at Color-Me-Scrappy  I have to say that these are not colours I would have used together at all, so "challenge" this was indeed!  It's weird because although it is random, I really like it!  I guess it's because I love all the "stuff" on it despite, the fact that it doesn't really "go" together, it's kind of like the "awkward geek" we all knew in high-school ( or maybe you were the awkward geek...I am not judging at all, I was friends with lots of geeks!), underneath their outward odd-ness they are really great people to know, in fact some of my better friends to this day!!!  That is what this page is to me awkward but GREAT!  Great, because this day was a very special day last year about a week after we moved away and it was a day that we spent being a new family of three. Sounds kind of sad, sure it was, but it was a lot of good too!

This Layout contains Core'dinations cardstock, Prima, Basic Grey and Close to my Heart paper, cardboard from a box ;)  Prima stickers, birdhouse, flowers and leaves, Kasier Craft crochet flower, random pearls, Fabricland zipper trim, and crochet trim, Close to My Heart pins liquid glass, Smooch orange ink, unknown chipboard and Maya Road envelope

My Men

My post for Scrap'n With Flair this month I used a few left over bits and pieces from my July Plumeria Kit I added some extra goodies I picked up from the store as well!  I made this page about my sweet men, John and Carter, love those guys and who says they have to be in a “manly” layout right?!  I really enjoyed last months kit it had a ton of embellies and loads of paper I have made 6 layouts, a few cards and decorated the graphic 45 box with it.  Of course I did add some other goodies too, but all from my Scrap’n With Flair stash, I don’t know anyone else who loves flowers as much as I do!!! I also used some decorative tiles from Prima and my Tim Holtz distress inks!

Anyway hope everyone is enjoying the last few weeks of summer I know we will be…
Happy Scrappin’

Matchbox with Scrapn With Flair

I made this for my swap partner, the swap was to make a matchbox and fill it with summer goodies; sea shells, bling, flowers and all that fun stuff!  I made mine with great products I have bought from Scrap’n With Flair!  I am really happy the way it turned out!  I used a Memory Box Die to cut out the lacey flowers and embellished with pretty rub-ons and I am Roses flowers.  I sure do hope my partner likes it I had a lot of fun making it. 

That’s all for now enjoy…

A little Digital for old times Sake!

I have not touched my digital scrapbooking lately so I was in a mood to journal and I thought a digi journal might be in order!  This year has been filled with ups and downs and there has been lots to journal about...I sadly haven't for some reason....I know I should document these times as one day I hope to look back and think "ahhh, much better now!!!"  I hope fr more stable times ahead but I certainly know that there may be more to come.  Thankfully I am happy to say we are moving on and life will get better from here! :)
