Go Hunt


This is the first of three layouts that I did for Practical Scrappers. Our challenge this week was to use stamps. I finally got out my awesome Easter Egg set from CTMH and used them.

Special People

I am a chronological scrapper. And I also feel like my main purpose is to document things so I don't forget them in a year or two. I know this isn't everyone's approach-but it is mine. Having said that I was anxious to finish up my son's preschool pictures before he started kindergarten. I was able to accomplish that mission!

Cherry Disposition

I did this layout using items from both our sponsors at Practical Scrappers. The Cherry Brads come from the Eyelet Outlet and the Doodling is from a Crafter's Workshop. I thought the sweet and sour was a perfect description of my two year old!

Kansas Moments

This is a lot of pictures for one layout! I love the story this tells of my sweet kiddos having a blast with their cousins..

Hearts at Home Layout

This layout made me a little sad to do. I had a great time with my friends at this conference-but I was also experiencing bad morning sickness and the excitement of a new pregnancy that ended in miscarriage. I will be glad to be done scrapping pictures from that pregnancy! Nonetheless they are moments in my life and I can't just skip over that 12 weeks.

Lumpy's Biggest Fan






Here's a plug for a great feature at the Cricut Messageboards-you can get in on a swap for cuts that you want but don't have the cartridges for. This month I request several from Pooh & Friends because my Lucy loves that gang. I scrapbooked this within a week of them arriving-aren't they adorable?

Blog Candy


Check out what I won from Lynn-how cool is this?!?

Practical Scrappers Challenge: Vellum

Argh! This is how I feel about this challenge! I really like to try to do something very creative-it did not happen! I got this done today about 3 minutes before hosting a dinner party. I guess my mind is on Kindergarten this week-not vellum :). I do have to say that I really love my journaling on this...you won't hear me say that very often!

All I used was stickers and one sheet of white cardstock-can you believe it!?!

Christmas Breakfast

The challenge this week on Practical Scrappers is to use up scraps. I love to make layouts using as much paper up as I can, so this was no problem for me (as evidenced by the 4 postings I did there!!!) Anyway this was yet another creation that I decided not to post there...I tried to share some of my more creative scrap uses on there and although this one uses lots of scraps, it's nothing earth shattering :). This shot is of my dad making the annual Christmas breakfast.

Soccer


This is the first of probably several soccer layouts. I had so much soccer paper stored up...it was nice to get to finally use some of it! I also got to use my Sports Mania cartridge! That is such an awesome cartridge!

Doodling Template

I made this layout using a doodling template from the Crafter's Workshop. They are one of our sponsors over at Practical Scrappers. I never thought I'd see the day when I would actually use this color green cardstock to make something so pretty :).

Sticker Challenge at Practical Scrappers

This is my entry for Practical Scrappers this week. The challenge this week is to use at least 3 stickers on a page. I sat down and sorted thru my piles of stickers trying to find some inspiration. I initially pulled these leaves out thinking that I could do an old fall layout. But they were such a good match for the Wisconsin cabin photo I went that route instead. I used one of the big Fiskars circle templates to help me get the leaves all lined up.
