Sugar & Spice and Gingerbread Men

Okay I am really feeling the heat of the summer already (and have the sunburn to prove it) so I am really wishing that it were Christmas time again! These scrapbook pages really take me back and get me in the mood all over again!

Hailey and I had so much fun making cookies this past year, although we totally cheated on the dough! I bought premade-precut dough, since I have zero baking supplies, and we just put all our effort into really cute decorating. I cheated on the decorating too and bought the bagged cookie frosting and lots of sprinkles from the Target dollar bins! :o) The really funny part was after all the snowmen, stockings, and trees were docorated, Hailey wanted to use the leftovers as cookies too. She said one looked like a shark and one looked like a stork! Too funny!

This was our first year making a gingerbread house, so it was a complete learning experience! I am all about making life simple, so we opted for the complete kit and I am really glad we did! It turned out a little lopsided with a gap in the roof, but we still had loads of fun and it was really cool watching her figure out the perfect spot for all the candy accents. After she decorated the people, it was really funny to watch her play with them like they were Barbies! They took on their own personalities and voices!

Together Time & Crop for a Cure

This layout has been sitting on my scrap table now for about two weeks just waiting on a title! Ridiculous, I know! So, I finally got it wrapped up in preparation for a major scrapfest tonight! So excited! The local high school is hosting "Crop for a Cure" an all night scrapbook event. Even better than getting to scrap for 12 hours straight, is that is is catered by Olive Garden... YUMMY! That has to be one of my most favorite places to eat! And I don't get to go very often because hubby doesn't care for it, so I am super excited about dinner tonight! And of course there will be tons of raffles, contests, etc. to keep us going all night long! Too fun! So if you are free tonight, email me and I will give you the details! You can register at the door if you like. Anywhoo, to the layout.

I made the flowers using the QK Nesting Circles (although you can totally free hand cut some circles), edge distresses the edges, then crumpled and flattened a few times, and hand sewed the button on top, right through all the layers to hold it together... much like the Prima Lollipop flowers. I am pleased with the result and this way they perfectly match my layout since I used scraps of the patterned paper and cardstock.
