Behind on my blogging...

Again. I know, I know the guilt really gets to me when I don't post. So many of my friends are after me to join Facebook too and I just can't bring myself to do it knowing I have a hard time keeping up with my blog. Oh well, what can you do. At least I have alot to share with you today!

I have a layout in the winter issue of Scrapbooking and Beyond. Yay!

Here it is:

I am happy to tell you that I will be staying on at My Acrylic Album for a second term and I am so excited about it. They have recently released a ton of new albums and I will get the opportunity to work with a lot more of them so it is definitely very exciting for me.

I am also joining the team at I AM A Scrapaholic on a permanent basis and couldn't be happier about it. It is a fantastic community and they have fabulous kits so I can't wait for January to come so I can officially get started there. Woo Hoo! They are having a warehouse sale so be sure to stop by and check out the great deals.

I had the pleasure of working on the Peek a Boo Heart album and the Making Memories Pink Paperie Line this month for My Acrylic Album. I took the opportunity to use some of my favorite pictures of my girl Lucy. Check her out!

I did a few layouts just for me too! And I wanted to share them with you. Soccer is such a huge part of our lives that I needed to do a LO with both my boys playing.

This is my adorable niece on her birthday...I just love how sweet she is.

Here is a close up of the flower.

I loved this weeks sketch at Sketches! {by tamara}. Be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the DT did.
Here is the sketch:

Here is my LO using it!

Treasures to Scrap is adding the their Digital CT so it you are a digi girl check it out. I love being on the paper team there and the community is so welcoming...here is the ad.

Happy Birthday Nick and John!!!!!!!!!

Tomorrow is a big day in the Leinbach household. It is my son Nick's 11th birthday. It is also my brother John's as well so it really is a very special day. How appropriate that 2 people I love so much are born on the same day! This weekend will include lots of cake, sleepovers and gifts I'm sure. Happy Birthday boys! Here they are:

I have had lots of scrappy stuff to do so you may be overloaded with all this but I hope you like it. Yesterday was release day at My Acrylic Album. They have created 14 amazing new albums...be sure to check them out. They are even having a sale right now so if you enter the coupon code MAA20 up until December 5th you will receive a 20% discount on all acrylic items. Here are 2 albums that I worked on. This is the On the town album and it would be perfect for weddings, proms, formals, New Years Even or even just a little girl dressing up. I chose to feature some pictures from my BIL and his wife's wedding. Susie...if you are reading this you better stop it because this is part of your Christmas gift and I don't want it to be spoiled.

I also worked on the Christmas Stocking album...this is just such a great way to look back a past Christmases.

I am a guest designer this month at Coordinates Collection and had so much fun working on the Candy Canes kit. Here are my projects:

This weeks sketch at Sketches {by tamara} was a 6x12 layout. I chose to adapt it to an 8 1/2x11.

Last but not least I got to work with the Fancy Pants Christmas line at Treasures to Scrap. Here are a few of my projects:

Well thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!

My favorite MAA Album...the pink ribbon album

Yes, I am finally back to the blogging world. After a little break my hand is so much better. As usual I have lots to share. It makes me smile because everyone always comments how I put so much in a post but when you post as often as I do...not so much then you can really pack a post full of stuff. It does not hurt that I am an insomniac...I don't sleep much. Wish I could but there are nights that 3 hours is all my body will let me sleep so I make that time productive by scrapping or over the last few days working on the school yearbook, nightmare!

Well here it is! This quickly became my favorite MAA album of all time! My Mom is a Breast Cancer survivor...twice! We even just had another scare but thank goodness the doctors were wrong and it was a non-malignant tumor. As soon as I saw this album I had to make it for her as a gift! I took lots of pictures of her at her horse farm the day of her horse show. I even got some pictures of grand kids riding her horses and packed this album with as much pink as possible! If you click on the picture you can see the larger image. I put a ton of time and detail into this and I am so happy with the result.

I was the guest designer this month at I AM A Scrapaholic and had a great time working with the kit packed full of goodies and SEI ALpine Frost. Here area few of my designs:

And be sure to check the sketch this week at Sketches! {by tamara}, it is a 2 page layout and I had not done one in years.

The sketch:

Last but not least tomorrow is my 14th anniversary to my hubby Josh! I just wanted to say Happy Anniversary honey! After all these years those blue eyes still can take my breath away!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!
