Family 2005

This layout really did not want to photo well, so I had to shoot on manual with no flash and manually adjust stuff...needless to say it is all weird and obviously looks a ton better in person! I think this is one of the two of my last stray layouts that I had for 2005 and that is it! 2005 is completely done! Then all I have left for 2006 is Christmas! And I really feel like I have been keeping up otherwise. Especially with all this time I am getting at Grannys to sneak away and scrap!

This is some paper I picked up yesterday at The Scrapbook Shoppe. It is from an up & coming Kaiser Crafts, from Australia. This is really nice cardstock thickness, double-sided patterned paper, and there were multiple designs in this line. Granny picked this one out for me, good job Granny! I used that little trick on this layout of twisting my spiral clips to look like vines. Kinda cool and fun little accent.

PP: Kaiser Scrapbook's Deck the Halls: Mistletoe, Ivy, Holly
CS: CTMH New England Ivy
Embellisments: CTMH Just Blooms, Leaves, Buttons, Spiral Clips, Dimensional Elements Monograms. And more machine stitching!

I am on such a good scrapbooking groove right now... so I am majorly taking advantage of it! Visiting Granny is awesome, for sooo many reasons that aren't so superficial, but I have to admit that I love it that Hailey can run off with Papa or Aunt Amy to play trains, swim in the pool, go to the beach, and totally be spoiled while I hideout and scrapbook with Granny in her AMAZING scrapbook room. I even got my own table this time, we finally remembered that we had an extra folding table that I could smoosh over in the corner so I get my own table to spread out on. At the same time, I can sneak over to Granny's dedicated sewing station, die-cut station, stamping station, we even have a tv and radio (and of course my laptop!) I am going to have a hard time going home! I am trying to talk her into a girls weekend... don't book your flight just yet though! ;o) She doesn't share well! (j/k granny, you know I love you!) Anywhoo, this is my latest layout for the week... another for the Cruise album of our first day at sea. I am already working on the next layout while the pictures load of this layout, I'm not wasting any time. Except for that trip to my two favorite scrapbook stores today! I really behaved and didn't buy anything that I didn't have pics for! And I promised myself that I wouldn't print any more pics until these 9 layouts are all done! We'll see! ;o) Happy Scrapping this week!

PP: Reminisce Aloha (words) and Orlando (stripe - that I added some pink cs strips to make it match a bit better)
CS: CTMH Dutch Blue and Bubblegum
Quickutz: Spicy Chicken, Lemonade, Hibiscus
Embellisments: CTMH Summer Medley Buttons, Just Blooms (leaves on the hibiscus), Stickles Icicle, and I borrowed Granny's Fiskars Threading Water punch to make the scalloped border. I think these little flowers are my favorite part, totally Granny's idea!
