I'm such a bad blogger! I have every intention of stopping by and posting a new blog entry at least weekly, but life just gets so busy, I just can't seem to find the time. I did want to stop off and post my most recent work for My Creative Scrapbook. The kits this month are just beautiful! I love the main kit with the Little Yellow Bicycle papers!
This is Allen and Helen Grace...as you can see, Allen is very excited to talk with Santa...Helen Grace just wanted to get away from him! I did a little hand stitching on this layout...very time consuming, but definitely worth it!
More cute photos of Helen Grace. These were made right after she started walking. The ornaments are chipboard covered with paper and then I covered them with glitter...gotta have sparkle at Christmas!
These photos are of my three grandsons on Christmas Eve 2006. They were so excited...can you just imagine the excitement of three...yes, three.....3 year olds!! Definitely brought back some sweet memories!
This is my daughter, Traci when she was almost 4 years old. I turned the photo to a sepia tone to give it a vintage look...although it was made in 1979! This was made with the Cosmo Cricket Christmas papers...very vintage type papers!
I have to admit when I first saw this kit, I wasn't too crazy about the paper...but I love the way this layout turned out! Sweet photos of three of my grandchildren on Christmas 2007. This was one of the add on kits from My Creative Scrapbook. The papers are My Mind's Eye Christmas paper.
This layout was with the same kit...I just love these photos of Allen and Jacob trimming the tree. They "helped" again this year for about 3 minutes, then they were off to play...chasing each other through the house. Helen Grace, who is 3, was helping decorate the tree and was taking the job seriously....on one race through the living room, the boys bumped her and she ran after them into the bedroom and told them...."Jacob and Allen, you need to stop running, I'm twying (trying) to decawate (decorate) the twee!" We all got a big laugh from that...mostly because she was so serious! This is a sample of cards that I made using the three kits...I really like the card with the Santa stamp on it.
As always, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you'll visit again soon. I'd love to hear what you think about the kits/layouts.
Merry Christmas to ALL!
