My Starbucks Baby

So this is not one of my shining moments as a mother, is was just cream though not coffee! But, we were stuck in a 2 hr delay in the DFW airport at 2am and of course the only thing open was Starbucks! After finishing her favorite "organic chocolate milk" she started eating my cream. Needless to say the sugar wore off shortly after we boarded the plane and she slept like a log! We had strapped her in her carseat on the plane and managed to transfer her (still strapped in) off the plane, into a taxi, out of the taxi, and into her bed at the hotel without her even blinking an eye! Did you know that carseats mount perfectly ontop of rolling luggage?! I will have to find that picture to share.
Anyways, the paper is Stylin Paper Pack; Hollyhock and Black My Accents and Photo Hangers; Black, Baby Pink and Hollyhock CS; and the title is cut from Quickutz Daisy Skinni Mini and Quickutz Blossom Grand. The layout sketch is from Imagine: Serenade pg 36

Life Lessons

I love the new Dimensional Elements...they now all feature self-adhesive backing and the top white layer is much nicer! Nice enough to just leave white. I chalked the flourishes and the birds right over the white. The font is Quickutz Lucy Classic, cut from the reverse side of Honey Textured CS (so it is shade lighter) and chalked on the edges. The paper is Sweet Harmony Level 2 Paper Pack. Hand journaled with a black writer. Sooo easy, but I love it! Oh, and I scrap-lifted this sketch from Page Maps. One of my new favorite sites, I have added a link to that site over on the right--->

First Layout of the Year!

These photos are from a trip we took in 2006, but I just recently got the enlargement done and stumbled across the other snapshots in my photo box. They were screaming at me last night to come out and play! The title is from Quickutz, it is called Magnolia Grand Alphabet. The rest is all CTMH. The stripe paper is from the Majestic Blue paper pack and the stamp that I journaled on is from my new stamp set called Ticket Tags. All the colors are Indian Corn Blue, Cocoa, Bamboo, and Colonial White. I also used one of my coveted Edge Anchors on the journaling tag. I used bullet points to highlight the places pictured. Oh, and I scrap-lifted the layout sketch off the quickutz idea gallery, so it was that much easier to put together!

Crop Club starting in February!

Starting in February and running for 6 months, we will meet one Friday night each month to crop and I will have free Create & Take for members. The only requirement is a $25 order each month, there will not be any crop fee or project fee. Each month I will focus on a different technique to teach you all how to use all those fun tools in the back of the catalog and to help you all build up your card stash. So each month you will learn something new, make some fun and different handmade cards, and get to scrap! I am also offering to have it others homes and maybe do it potluck style. Plus you can use any of my stamps, Quickutz, and inks that night as well! The greatest benefit is that you will get to be Hostess once during the 6 months and earn at least $25 in free product that month. Let me know if you are interested? First-come, First Serve!

Happy New Year!

Ok, so I realize that it's already the middle of January...but better late than never, right? So, one of the resolutions this year is to get my ipod out and start using it! Which means I really need to download some good music, some to walk to, and some to scrap to of course! So, I have started a list of favorite musicians and would love to know what you are listening to right now..... SOOOOO, SPILL THE BEANS, PLEASE! I just heard Jack Johnson and really like him, and of course Colbie Caillat, Carrie Underwood, Pink, Gwen Stefani, Alicia Keys, Norah Jones. But surprisingly one of my favorites is Outkast! I am a sucker for that song Hey Ya! What else should I download? ;o)
