LOVE mini album

Yeah! I got something done this week. I didn't think it would happen. I really like how this album turned out. It's fun to try new techniques and see everything come together. On the cover I made a paper ruffle and I love how that turned out. If you want to see more pics, check out ebay where I have it up for sale.

Thanks for checking out my latest book. Hope you are having a great day!

Fun pages of my little man

It was so funny to run across pics that were this old of my little man. I was working on another project when I saw that sticker A Little Dirt Never Hurt. I immediately remembered these pics. I turned to our computer, pulled up the file, found the ones I was thinking of, and printed them. I LOVE technology sometimes. I also love this paper from Echo Park. They do the best kit that has a bunch of paper and stickers, so its pretty easy to sit down and make a layout. And of course its fun to add your own little things like a green tag cut from my cricut and doodles in the clouds with a white pen and of course little bits of bling. Anyway... so excited to finally scrap these!

Lovin' the pullout tag picture, border punches and my cuttle bug for all those extras!
Thanks for looking. Hope your day isn't windy like mine:) BRRRR!

Love You Paper Bag Album!

I'm so excited! I finished my Love You Paper Bag Album I made for Valentine's Day. I had so much fun making it. Creating is the best outlet in the world for me. If you'd like to see more photos, you can see the rest on ebay where I have it for sale. I'll keep it short tonight because I'm trying to get things ready to go skiing after the kiddos get out of school tomorrow. It's great to go skiing, but getting ready to take three small kids and two oversized kids(Trev and I;) takes a bit of prep. Hope you all have a great night!

Ski Day!!!!!

Today was a gorgeous day to be outside. It was cold again but absolutely beautiful. Last week Trevor took little man out skiing alone and today it was Curly's turn. It so funny to think this is her third year on skis. Arghh... they just grow up so fast! I can't wait to get today's adventures scrapped. It was so sweet to see her and Daddy riding the lift and how excited she was to go. I hope she always wants to hang out with us. I just love the picture on the right of them on the lift. Curly's little ski's stick straight up and Trev's just dangle! I'll share my scrap pages when they are done:) Just had to share our fun day!

Finally got Tiny's first page done!

I'm so excited. I finally got my littlest ones first scrapbook page done. I swear it has taken forever because of other projects I have had going on (mini albums that I sell, a massive scrapbook project for a family member(please don't procrastinate with memories), and Christmas gifts for my fam and friends). So even though I am sad to pack up Christmas stuff, I am so excited to have a little more time again for my projects. So here it is, pics that melted my heart of my little angel. I had help from the fantastic monthly kit from Little Black Dress Kit Club, but of course I had to add some of my own twist to it;)

My other project that I finished up is my latest mini album. It is made out of the DCWV La Creme stack. Just card stock and papers to make this super cute album. I was pretty excited to get it done and I was really happy with how it turned out. (You can check it out more pictures of it where I have it listed for sale on eBay.)

Hope you all have a great day! Mine it cold brrr, but sunny and beautiful (and I get to spend the rest with my sweetheart and munchkins).
