I got this layout done while Hailey had a friend over yesterday... she is loving Cmas break because all of her friends that are usually at school are home and able to come over and play as soon as she wakes up! And pretty much play all the way through till dinner time! The photos on the layout are not all the great, but considering they are from a disposable underwater camera... they will do the job of showing my little tadpole swimming underwater, with her eyes open!

PP: "Amy Butler" K & Co. Stack from Joanns (loving the funky patterns in this stack!)

Embellies: CTMH Dimensional Elements Simple Lowercase Alpha (covered in the pp), misc ribbon, machine sewing (along the strip of pink pp), handcut waterdroplet shapes, MM paint: Spotlight White & Sky Blue
Sketch: actually, me :o)

Spring Break 2008

It makes me so happy to be working on pictures from Spring Break this year, when we got to spend the whole day with our friends! Our three families have since relocated across the country, which makes this layout all the more special to have such great memories with them! We went to the UF Natural History Museum, followed by lunch at an infamous local pizza place "Satchel's", then we went to the farm for feeding time, and a park to play, and finally rounded out our day with Waffle Cone Wednesday at TCBY! It was a whirlwind day that couldn't have been any more perfect!

Last of Cmas 2007!

Just in the "Nick" of time for this years Cmas pics! Ha Ha, get it nick, as in Jolly Ole St. Nick! :o) Anywhoo, It took me long enough to get around to this last page, but I am now officially done with those, and I only have a handful of other 2007 layouts to do! WooHoo!!! And I am currently downloading my pics from last nights events... decorating the tree that is taller that we can reach! I can't wait to get started on the 2008 holiday festivities!!!

On my last post, Theresa asked how I do the scallops on my paper, most of the time I used the EK Corner Rounder... there is a great tutorial on Scrapbook.com, but I also took a few pis the last time I did it and am working on formating those so I can show you too. I also use the QK 12" scallop border sometimes and when I am at Moms house, I totally cheat and use her AccuCut machine on the chipboard and all! Its awesome! So, here is the layout... don't worry granny, the date and journaling are on the other side of the layout! ;o)

Amazingly enough I still have some of this My Minds Eye paper left over still (I only started with about 6 sheets and have done (3) two-pagers... which translates into, a few of my Cmas cards this year will be made out of this paper.
