Fun Stuff!

I came across a Rusty Pickle sketch challenge with the theme of Let's get wild and I knew immediately what I wanted to do. We just had our first real snow of the year this week and my 13 year old Bassett Lucy forgets she is old and acts like a puppy when she see the snow. For a girl who spends a majority of her days sleeping, eating and burping...a little bit of snow can bring the wild out of her in a big way.

I used 4 patterned papers from 3 different lines of Rusty Pickle...the Candyland (totally love this), Island Summer, and Word Reel lines. I also used the Fair Verona Alphabets...very fun!

Finally...a snow day!

I thought the day would never come this year...thought that winter just might pass us leaving only ice and no snow. Finally it happened today...not a ton, maybe 4+ inches but the kids finally got to play.

As you can see, Nick and his board are a pair today.

Nothing like rosy cheeks on a cold winter day to make the perfect smile.

Getting a little air!

Having fun!

Now for some scrappy fun!

This month at My Acrylic Album I got to play big time. They sent me the cutest heart album. I decided to use bright fun colors and I am going to take pictures of my son's class on Valentine Day. I know he will love it.

I figure the work is all done now I just have print all my photo's in wallet size and done!

I also received an adorable crown album but decided to take it apart and make some desk decor for both my Mom and MIL for Valentines Day!

Serendipity Scrapbooks has ask me to come back to participate in their reunion crop. Lots of DT alumni will be returning with great challenges and goodies so be sure to stop by.

Over at Treasures to Scrap this weekend is the Super Bowl crop...come by while the boys are glued to the TV for the big game.

The new February kit will be debuted at I am a Scrapaholic very soon so check them out fast...last month they sold out really quickly.

I leave you with this final layout, I know it is extremely simple but I really love this picture of my nephew and wanted that to be the highlight of the LO.

Happy Scrapping!

Got my IAAS DT kit...

and look what I made.

A close up of the flowers.

And to create the grasses, cut a few papers strips and curl around a pencil. Pin them into the green foam and this is what you get.

Be sure to stop by and check out this awesome kit here.

10 favorites in 08

Since the new year is now here and I now have to remember to write 2009 on my checks, ugh. I though I would post my favorite 10 layouts/project of 2008. For one reason or another, these layout/project just speak to me. They may not all be my best scrappy creations but I love them anyway.

#1: I made this as a gift for my mom to remind her how much she is loved and how she has beaten breast cancer twice.

#2: This is one of my favorite pictures of my son, really shows his true soul.

#3: I love scrapping beach pictures and had a ball using this summer pictures!

#4: I just love this picture of Jack riding in a horse show. He looks so serious and came away with 2 1st and a 3rd place ribbon.

#5: Soccer is a HUGE part of our family and I love watching the boys play. This LO shows that.

#6: I just love this...sorry, don't know why, just do.

#7: This is the first album I received as part of the design team projects at My Acrylic Album. I don't generally like to do stuff about my self and this album forced me to. Who knew?

#8: This LO is just like Jack. A little of this a little of that and just plain old fun. It really is his personally that comes through.

#9: When I took this picture of my Mom, my boys and one of my nieces it immediately became a favorite.

#10: Last but not least...these are some of my favorite pictures of my boys. The LO is simple but a favorite!

A happy and healthy new year to you all!
