We've had a lot of things going on around here the last few weeks.  I almost forgot to post this photo compilation of my favorite photos from 2014.  So here you go...and in no particular order.

Happy New Year!

Project Life Week 31

I'm going to apologize in advance for these photos.  I have no idea what happened to the ones I took with my camera in good lighting.  They somehow disappeared from my computer.  I think I overwrote them...Anyhow I only have two photos.  One of the Left Side and one of the Right.  I'm still planning on continuing this project for 2015 even though, I'm a tad behind.  Hopefully, I'll be able to catch up someday.

 This is the week that the boys and I started back to school.  
I used the Clique Kits November Kit, Homecoming for this spread.  The photos don't do it justice.   There are still some kits for sale and they are half off!  Don't forget to enter MARIAH10 to get another ten percent off of your purchase!

Clique Kits Pep Rally

Hello all and welcome!!  You should have arrived from the lovely Lacey's blog.  What a crazy busy this month has been.  I have to admit, I hate that crazy holiday scramble.  One year, I swear, I'm going to have everything done so I don't feel like a chicken running around with it's head cut off.  Moving on, let me just say I LOVE this kit.  It's one of my all time favorites.  For this month, I did do a two page layout.  It's been so long since I've done one.  I also have a cut file for you to download.  The cut file is only for the Silhouette Studio.  I'm sorry.  I will share the link with you so you can download it.  So without further ado, here you go.

I used the December Mini Kit to create this layout.  I mulled over the metallic world paper for a few days and decided it should have something to do with our family.  I knew I wanted to make the photos polaroid looking.  I made them 3x3 and 2x2 and printed them with a border.  I left about 3/4 inch on the bottom to mimic a polaroid photo.  I also made some photo strips which I printed on my Selphy as well.  I made the large cut file in the Silhouette Studio.  You can download it here.  Here are some closeups for this layout.

I hope I inspired you to take the leap....create a two page layout just for old time's sake. :)  I plan on using the rest of my December Full Kit and Mini Kit on my Project Life Album.  I'm way, way only slightly behind.  The acetate cards are perfect for Project Life.  Anyhow, its time for you to go and see what Alisha has come up with for you today.

Here is the blog list incase you get lost along the way.

Around Here

It's been quite a while since I posted an "Around Here" post.  We've been super busy.  I got swamped with yearbook photos and the holidays.  The thing about taking everyone else's photos is that I don't want to take any of my own.  So, I will be posting mostly cell phone photos...though I did take a few that I liked.
