Presley

So last year we decided that we needed another puppy... crazy, I know, but I just can't NOT love little baby puppies. We already have a fawn Weimaraner and wanted a blue one, so we were on the hunt. Didn't take long until we found one and ooooooooh, was he cute as a puppy! He is now almost a year old and is much bigger than these pictures, lol.

So here are a couple of layouts that I have done the last couple of weeks. They are pretty simple. I find it a little difficult to get back into the swing of things after having everything packed up for so long. I am hoping to get my groove going soon!

So here is one from our trip to Gatlinburg a couple of summers ago. I really enjoyed it there. We pulled over and walked some trails while at Cade's Cove.


Here is a real quickie that I threw together in a hurry. The picture is one of the pictures that Stacy Landry photography took of us in November.


Thanks for looking!!!

Shadowboxes...

Well, before I started these, I just knew they were going to look as good as Wendy's.... yeah, I was wrong, lol. Believe it or not, they were much hard than I thought they would be. I have had these packed in a box for MONTHS and couldn't wait to give them a try, so I did one for Taylor and one for McKenzie. I let them pick the pictures they wanted since the shadowboxes will go in their bedrooms. Hope you like them!

Here is McKenzie's


and here is Taylor's

It's been a loooooooooooong time....

Well, it sure has been awhile since I updated my blog. It has been a crazy year for me and I haven't done much scrapping since I last posted. We spent the majority of 2010 concentrating on building our new house! In June we had to put our old house up for sale and all of my scrapping supplies had to go into storage for awhile... but I am back!!! With a new scrapbook room!!! I now have my very own room to do my scrapping in and I can't be more excited about it! I have big plans for decorating it, I just haven't had a chance to get it all done yet, so once that is all done, I will post pics, I promise!

Anyway, I have been getting back into my groove slowly and have a layout almost finished that I will be posting this week, so stay tuned!

Here are a few pics of my house if anyone is interested!

Alice and Mad Hatter, Minnie's House and Rafiki

I am almost done with Disney!!! Just a couple of layouts left and some finishing touches on a couple of unfinished layouts and the 2008 trip will be COMPLETE! YAY! I love scrapping Disney pictures, but I have had enough! I am ready to move on and now I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

Ok, so here is what I was able to put together last week...




























ok, so I am not sure why everything is all bunched up... and I can't figure out how to fix it. Thanks for looking!

Crystal Palace

Still chuggin' along with my Disney layouts... We love the Crystal Palace while at Disneyworld, the food isn't super delicious or anything, but the setting of it and the Pooh characters make it completely worth it.

Primeval Whirl

Another Disney layout... I am actually pretty close to be done with our Disney trip, which is bittersweet for me. I love working on Disney albums because they are so fun, but I am tired of looking at Disney pictures, lol. We won't be going back to Disney for a looooooooong time, so once this album is done, no more Disney for me. Not that I don't have a ton of other stuff to do, but I really do like scrapping our Disney trips.

Anyway, the girls loved this ride. I could only ride it a couple of times before I had had enough. I think this is the jerkiest ride EVER. Fun, but jerky.

Purple????

I am so not a "purple" person...like at all, which is weird because I remember loving purple when I was a little girl. Not anymore and especially not in my scrapbooking. Purple is probably my least used color in all of my books. Not sure why, I just don't use it that often.

We were at my parents house when I saw my mom Wisteria plant that had blossomed and created a beautiful archway that I knew was going to make GORGEOUS pictures, so the next day I made the girlies get all dolled up for pictures and if I do say so myself, the pictures came out really REALLY good! I am actually going to do another layout for the "family" book from this "session" but these are for the girlie individual books.


Products used: Basic Grey pattern paper, Pink Paislee diecut paper and ribbon, Prima flowers and bling, Webster's Pages label tag thingie, American Crafts Thickers

Relax....because it is So Hot

So I have been doing a little bit of scrapping the last couple of days... getting some more stuff done for my vacation albums. I need to finish Disney (from 2 years ago), Gatlinburg, our Cruise and a little weekend getaway to Memphis! The problem is I get tired of working on one set of pictures, so I bounce around from album to album...

Ok, so here are a couple of (pretty simple) layouts that I was able to get done...

Relax - I inked my letters blue and then used Stickles, now you can't see them hardly at all so I am going to have to come up with something else so you can see them

Products used: MME paper, Prima flowers, Basic Grey chipboard letters, Stickles


Products used: Coredinations cardstock, pattern paper from Scarlet Lime kit, misc. rhinestones, Hambly transparency, Fancy Pants paper, Colorbok label, My Little Shoebox stickers, Making Memories diecuts

Hannah Montana mini album

A couple of years ago, I was lucky enough to get tickets for the Hannah Montana concert for the girlies. I think her concert sold out in something like 5 minutes or something crazy like that.... I had already done a layout from this concert, but wanted to do a mini book on it for my big basket of little mini albums... so here ya go!

(Everything was done with the Cricut and the Hannah Montana cartridge, which can be used for TONS of different things, not just Hannah related things!)


For the charms on the side, I cut the treble clef and note out of cardstock 3 times and glued them on top of each other. Once that was dry, I inked with embossing ink and covered with UTEE twice to get a nice good thick coverage so it would be a bit more durable.








Products used: Bazzill cardstock, Glimmer Mist, misc. Rhinestones, Doodlebug glitter paper, Martha Steward glitter, Glitz pattern paper, Heidi Swapp chandalier drops, UTEE, Bind-It-All, Cricut Hannah Montana cartridge

Team Jacob or Team Edward?

Apparently McKenzie can't decide either, lol. We are all wrapped up in the Twilight saga and McKenzie just can't decide who she would rather, so she supports both!!!
