Happy Halloween!

We, or should I say I, spent yesterday evening carving our pumpkins. I really don't think Miss H enjoys this tradtion as much as i do... can you tell by the look on her face!? I got all goopey and carved both of our pumpkins, with her supervision of course ;o)

Snokeling on the Reef

Couldn't find a good pp for this one, so I made my own using CTMH stamps and inks. I used different little rings from C1232 Groovy Celebration, B1229 Solo E, and D1264 Angel Whispers. Inks and Cardstock are Cranberry, Honey, Breeze, and Ocean. The first page uses Inspired Blueprints Sketch #2 and page 2 I made up to go with it.

The title area uses Quickutz Abigail, CTMH brackets from the Dimensional Elements Simple Lowercase, CTMH Cranberry Bigger Brads, a hand-cut sunshine, and a Signo white pen for the accents. The scalloped edges I made using my EK corner rounder by taking off the cutting guide. This layout was fun to do despite the cold weather today!

Happy Fall Y'All!

We had a very fun, but exhausting, day... just us girls! We found two of the most perfect pumpkins at the pumpkin patch (even got a few good photos), played at Michaels, ate lunch at Chick-fil-a, finally found some fun tights for H's witch costume at Target, and discovered that Office Depot in Tally does not carry any scrapbooking stuff... which really bums me out since I have a store credit there and wanted to get some refills for my trimmer (guess I will have to stock up next time I am in Gville!) We did pick up some flash card games for 2nd grade test-prep sight-words... which really surprised me to find out Miss H already knew 71 of the 96 words rights out of the box! I didn't know she could even sound out that many words, much less the sight-words! And she's only 4! Okay, I will admit it now, I really need to get this kid in classes of some sort!

The two pumkins in the front crack me up because they had warts all over them, Miss H kept saying they were moldy! There were also a number of RED pumpkins! It was sooo cool seeing all the different ones! Now I am off to try and get some scrapping done!

Tallahassee Moms Like Me

So, shortly after moving to Tallahassee, I found this great website for local events, info, chat, and bulletin boards. I finally got around to making a group on the site to share ideas and info, and to help coordinate crop nights. If you are a tallahasse mom (or dad) that likes to scrapbook, stamp, or craft feel free to visit our group, join in, and come to one of our crop nights!

Happy Birthday Amy!

If you know my little sister, she is turning 22 today October 18th! This makes me feel really old that my little sis is in her 20's, but anywhoo! I just wanted to say I love you and Happy Birthday Sweetheart! You are such an awesome sister, aunt, and friend! We hope you have a great weekend, try not to party too much! ;o) Hopefully we will see you soon!

Stingray City

Woohoo #2 for the night, probably my last so I can actually get some sleep and rest my poor knee! Maybe I shouldn't have started exercising until my knee was completely better, uugh! This one uses Basic Grey Romani PP's, some CTMH Cranberry CS and ribbon, and my new Quickutz Metro Classic and Skinni Mini (love it!), and the arrows. Again, thanks granny ;o) See, I am already putting them to use! A simple but fun one! Journaling and date are under the flap on the right side.

And I got to play with my new Abigail Grand! LOVING IT! And to think I was on the fence about this font! I also used Maddie Anne (one of my all time fav fonts!) And I used up some scraps of Basic Grey and CS! Yeah! Do you think I can say AND just one more time?! ;o)

Go Fish

This layout went together in less than 30 minutes!!! But, it took me another hour to labor over the journaling, kind of an important one to me! ;o) And the paper was a total fluke, picked it up awhile back at another store closing sale for 20 cents!
Both sides are different PageMaps sketches.

Christmas 2006

What do ya'll think of the new way I have been photographing my layouts? I kinda like it, but when I look back, my eye get less distracted away from the layout when there isn't any backdrop? I don't know!

I usually don't do many black & whites, but once the layout was ready for the pics the layout no longer looked good with the color pics... it screamed for b&w's! Surprisingly, I had good ink in my photo printer so I could get the pics on here before I forgot what this layout was for! Just a few snapshots of Cmas 2006! I am trying sooo hard to get caught up to at least 2007 before the 2008 holidays strike!

PP: Prima Romantica Collection
CS: CTMH Textured Black & Olive
Quickutz: Paige Mini
Other: CTMH Black Ribbon Rounds
