I thought I would share this cute little baby album with you. Isn't it just too darn stinkin' cute? If you click here, you can see a slideshow of this album to see what it looks like on the inside. I had so much fun making this and I'm ready to make another one. Know anyone who would love to get their hands on one of these? Let me know! I'd love to make another one for you or someone you know.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you all have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

You're probably wondering where scrapbook challenge #33 is, right? Well, I started to fall a bit behind with these weekly challenges as I have been soooo busy prepping for a holiday open house next month, and decided to skip #33 for the time being in order to stay current. I will do my best to get #33 done soon but can't guarantee it so enjoy this layout doubly! LOL

Here's a few cards I made recently as I prepare items for an upcoming Holiday Open House that I am participating in again this year. The date is set for December 13th so if you would like to join us either as a crafter or a shopper, please give me a shout and I'll get the details to you.
I seem to have hit a very creative mode the past couple days so I am taking advantage of it and loving it! Hope you enjoy the cards!

I LOVE how this layout turned out, don't you? This is my version of the layout featured on page 69 in the new Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter Idea Book. I fell in love with this layout design right away but was only able to finish the layout after finding just the right photos for it. The journaling isn't done yet but will be soon. I used two of the Twitterpated papers and one paper from the Emporium paper pack. I also used many different embellishments, too numerous to mention so if there's anything you see that you really like, just ask me about it.
While visiting with my family in Upstate NY last month, we found ourselves with no children or grandchildren around. Wow! No children to bug or bother us? How could that happen? No matter, we had a blast and didn't even miss the kids! LOL...it was the first time we had all been together in a very long time without kids. We enjoyed it so much and laughed so hard that our stomachs hurt. We didn't care though because I think we all needed that release from the day to day worries. This is one day we will not forget! FYI-I am the one in the gray sweats!
We also took photos of our mom and dad and a couple group shots of all of us. As soon as those photos have been scrapped, I will post them.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great day!

Here is the latest layout for the Weekly Scrapbook Challenge I participate in. I had lots of fun with this one! It uses the new Jingle paper pack from Close To My Heart along with the Snow Flurries stamp set. I also added some sparkle with the new Twinkle Brads that come in Tulip, Twilight, Olive and Hollyhock colors. The title and snowflake die cuts were made with my Cricut machine. The design is from CTMH's Cherish how-to book called Pleasing Paradigm. I hope you enjoy the layout!
Here is the supply list in case you would like to duplicate this layout:
X7115B Jingle paper pack
D1384 Snow Flurries
Z1220 Twinkle Brads
9029 Cherish how-to design book

Here's the latest layout I created for the Weekly Scrapbook Challenge. I am a bit late posting this and I apologize. This layout was created with an older paper pack called "Key To My Heart" that was a special promotion kit quite some time ago and is no longer available. I still had some of the paper left and wanted to use it up. I used the Safe & Secure design from the 'Imagine' how-to book from Close To My Heart. Other products used are the stamp set that came with the kit, Colonial White softset eyelets, Sorbet ribbon and Spring Blossom brads. Hope you enjoy the layout!
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you make it a good one!
