Holiday Spirit?

I don't know about you all, but I feeling pretty festive right
about now... :) I love Christmas. I think I love Christmas
even more so now that I have children. I love seeing how
excited they are on Christmas morning... I am all done
with my Christmas shopping, and let me tell ya - that is a
GREAT feeling. Just the last minute stocking stuffers left

We start our Christmas party rounds this weekend. Well,
last weekend really. My friend Lisa had a great couples
only Christmas party. Had so much fun! Poor Dave was
all doped up though (he threw out his back that morning).
We have two more Christmas parties to go - one squadron
and one Wing party. Both adults only. I love my kids, but
there is also something nice about getting all this adults
only time!

I have been creating some Christmas projects that I will be
posting soon. I need to STOP baking though! All that
weight loss will be for nothing! :) No really, I have put on
about 5lbs since my Christmas baking started... Why is it
so easy to put it on, and so hard to take it back off?? That
is soooo not fair... LOL

Oh! And expect a review on that new Basic Grey Magnetic
Mat set soon! I found it at

I ordered it and it should be here next week - Merry
Christmas to me! LOL

Daily Scrapbooking Show

I was surfing a while ago and came across this great scrapbooking
webcast called Scrapbook Lifestyle:

It comes on every weekday and is pretty good! It features the
Scrapbook Lifestyle Design Team making albums for others, and
doing challenges from the producers.

There are some great layout ideas to be found here, as well as
photo and organization (you know how I am about organization!)
tips. I really like this webcast and have been watching it every

It is free, however there is also a premium option for even more
content. I haven't subscribed to that yet, but I am thinking
about it. Lots of great ideas and inspiration to be found here. Be
sure to try and catch an episode!

Heidi Swapp - All Year!

So I did it... I broke down and did it. I signed up for
Heidi Swapp's "A Year to Remember" yearlong class
at Big Picture Scrapbooking:

I can't wait to start and can't wait to get my kit. Her intro
message really hit home. It was kinda pricey (though if
you think about it, it adds up to $25 a month), but I
really am planning to follow this one closely. It was a thing
I did for me, and I am looking forward to learning alot
from Heidi - she is my absolute fave scrapper. I will be
sure and post my progress here - though we don't start
till January - the horror! :)

This Would Make a Great Layout...

Someone forwarded me this link and I had to laugh. I don't
know how this poor mom got all that peanut butter off this
kid... And the floor... And everything else! LOL

This would make a great layout wouldn't it? Hmmm...

What color cardstock goes with peanut butter? :)

Finally Sharing Again...

It has been shameful how little scrapbooking I have done! :)
Dave just got home a couple (okay, six) weeks ago after being
gone for four months. So we spent alot of family time... I
think I am back in the groove now. :)

This LO was one I did many weeks ago, but I realize I hadn't
posted it yet. This is another one from the SBO Kits. I love
using those - I just renewed my subscription another year!

This is another one with my youngest son and flowers.
Go figure! Hope you like it! :)

Happy Boy

Happy Boy

Hey guys!

Here is the newest layout I have done... It is of my youngest
on his 4th birthday.

All supplies are from the April Scrapbook Obsessions Kit.

For anyone who hasn't tried these, they are AWESOME.
Definitely worth it!

If you sign up, make sure you mention me... Free kits are
an AWESOME thing. :)

Laughter and Happiness

Once again I have been lazy about scrapbooking.

Ma Vinci's Alpha Initials

These Alphas Rock!

This is a new alpha set coming soon from Ma Vinci's Reliquary.

This alpha is going to come in two sizes, large which will be 2" tall
and small which will be about 1 .5" tall. They should be ready in a
couple of weeks.

I can imagine these on cards, layouts, and all kinds of projects...
The large would be great to use as monogram accents that are so
popular right now...

I so see these in my future! :)

About Me Album

About Me Album

I have been working on my About Me album, thanks to Lisa Bearnson and the gang at QVC... Without this particular autoship kit (that they sold last month), I doubt I would have started my About Me Album by now!
