Family Visit 2012

Well, here we are again.  I think this time it has been over a year since I posted.  I have scrapbooked several layouts this past year and will work on getting pictures to post.  For now, you will have to live with pictures from our recent trip to Louisiana and South Texas to visit our family.

Bridging to Brownies

Figuring out how I wanted to do her bridging from Daisy to Brownie in Girl Scouts was tough. I finally got through my mental block and got it done. I like how the pocket holds her certificate and the program. I used K&Co scout paper and embellishments. I am glad I got this one done since she is about to bridge from Brownies to Junior.

The Boys

I love these pictures of my brother with his sons. Alex, Andrew and Aidan are so cute and such good kids. I used the cricut to cut the patterned paper into the label and quickutz border dies for the dots. I stamped the journaling spot and then cut it out with spellbinders nesting dies. I wrote who what where and viola I was done. The colors remind me of young active boys and I love how it turned out.

Knitting 101

I am finally getting around to posting some mostly finished layouts I did at my February retreat. You probably can't tell but the paper has a very crafty feel which is perfect for this layout of mom teaching Ashleigh how to knit. I still need to do the journaling which is the story of my crafty life but I really like the simplicity of this one.

Ice Skating??

We have had some super crazy weather here is Lewisville all week. Ashleigh and David have been home since Tuesday and I have worked just two days this week (Monday and Thursday). We have had ice and freezing temperatures. To add to our messy roads and yards it snowed today. Due to the temperature not getting above freezing it looks like it will stick around for a full day. Just to further illustrate how icy it is, David pulled out his ice skates and took a spin on the sidewalk and street yesterday! It is just unbelievable.

Art Exhibit

The Lewisville Independent School District has an art exhibit in town showcasing the Elementary kids art work. They chose about 20 kids from each school. Ashleigh's Crazy Craziness was picked!! David and I are so proud of her. She was embarrassed to go see it but we loved it. I was amazed by all varied pieces from these talented kids. Once we get her catcus home, we are framing it and hanging it up.

Pinkies Up!

On my quest to make 2011 the year I finally finish gobs of layouts, I took a day off the first week of January to stay home and scrap. They next few posts of layouts are just a sampling of what I was able to complete. In all cases it was a matter of getting the journaling down. To accomplish my goal I have determined I am going to need to hand write some of my journaling. I am okay with this and know it will be appreciated once I am gone.

I love the way this layout turned out. I will never forget how it took me three different retreats to get the tea put and cups put together. That is from a special Quickutz die which unfortunately does not come with directions. Needless to say it was worth the time and effort and I have another page in mind for them. Luckily I took picture of assembly so it should not take as long!


Valentine Cookies

I bought the felt embellishments just for this page. I love them and the soft touch they added.
