Design Your Life

Well, I'm off on my journey to become a better scrapbooker (one of my New Year's Resolutions).  I am taking the online course, Design Your Life on Big Picture  If you're interested, there is still time to register. 

This is the title page of my album that I will be creating for the class.  I will be sharing my layouts from this class for the next 12 weeks. 

What are you going to do for New Years?  We're staying home and watching Everest.  We'll have homeade hot fudge sundaes.  It's our yearly tradition.  Happy New Year!

So Busy!

Hi, everyone.  I just wanted to do a quick post today since, I haven't been doing a very good job of keeping up lately.  I hope everyone's Christmas went well.  Ours was nice, and busy.  We've had company everyday.  Erik's brother is here with his two kids so that's kept us busy.  We went to see Avatar last night.  It was so good!  If you haven't gone to see it, I highly reccomend it.  Don't forget about the layout contest.  It's due December 31st.  Email it to me.  Well, I wish I had something more interesting to tell you, but I don't.  I will  post again soon.  Have a great day, and maybe we'll get some snow.

Merry Christmas

There is a cute little card/gift card holder.  I got the idea from the Hero Arts blog.  The gift card pops up when you open the card.  You can write a message on the inside.  I used Prism Cardstock and BoBunny Patterned Cardstock.

So, there is a little project for you.

Sorry for the long, long time in between posts.  As some of you know, Erik has been out of town.  I had to do all of the stuff around the house, make Christmas gifts, and get stuff ready.  That left no time for blogging.  Then, I went to Albuquerque with Erik.  I got back yesterday.  I couldn't even get online to check my email because the internet access at the motel was worthless at best.This will probably be my last post before Christmas.  I still have so much to do.  I haven't even wrapped half of the presents.  I just want to wish all of you a wonderful Christmas.  Enjoy your families and your children.  Take a lot of pictures.  I hope to get a few layouts done in the next few days.  Then I will share them with you.  Stay tuned to 2010.  We will have a monthly challenge of sorts, and don't forget about this month's challenge.  It's due December 31st. 
Merry Christmas

December Creative Challenge

Good Evening All.  I thought it would be the perfect time to have another challenge.  So, I chose a layout from PageMaps.  You need to create a two page layout using this sketch.  It doesn't have to look exactly like this, just use this one for inspiration.  There is no requirement for the theme either.  So choose, Christmas,  Thanksgiving, Birthday, cute pictures, anything.  When you finish your layout, take a picture of it and email it to me at

Here is your prize:

It's a kit to create the pictured layout and picture holders.  It includes everything you need, paper pieces cut to size, and instructions to put it all together.  It's from my website of course.  

Well, I'm off.  Can't wait to see what you come up with.  I will make my own sample and put it up for you to see.  Good night, I have to go take some pictures to keep up with my Daily Picture Challenge.

It's December...Already!

Birthday Card I made
(Really has nothing to do with December or Christmas)

It is December 1st.  Only 24 days left until Christmas.  There are a few things that I would like to do this holiday season to make it more meaningful for my family.  The first thing I've decided to do is count down to Christmas with Bible verses telling the story of the birth of Jesus.  I typed them all up and put them into my old Christmas countdown calendar.  I have them and I would be happy to email them to you.  Just email me and let me know if you want them.

The next thing  I would like to do is take a picture each day of December.  Then later either put it in a mini-album, or in a layout.  Memory Works has some really cute stuff here that I might use.  It has number stickers for each day.  My first photographs today were of the kids playing in the snow in the backyard.  This does not happen often.

I found the most beautiful Advent calendar here .  Next year, if time allows, I think I will try to make one.  The number stickers I mentioned above would also be perfect for it.

Ali Edwards is doing a December Daily Album.  You can find that here   It goes along with the idea for one picture a day. 

Well, I guess that is all for tonight.  Tomorrow, I will share some more stuff with you.  And if anyone has anything to share please leave a comment, or email me.
