Lots of scrappy stuff...

Last week was a very fun week for me. I was thrilled to be the Guest Artista at Bella BLVD. I love scrapping with their products and was really excited to be featured on their blog last week.

Here are my projects...

Some of my favorite shots from last Christmas!

A few detail shots...

This is one of my favorite pictures of my mom and the kids...

I so love these alpha's...

A few random nature shots...

These Bella Blooms are a must have in every color!

Be sure to check out the Pebbles blog this week. Mirelle is the talented blog hostess of the week and there are some great Christmas projects and even a bonus sketch to get your month of December off to a great start.

Here is a little jar of candy I made...another one of those handmade Christmas gifts for the boys teachers. I will leave you with a few random layouts that make me happy!

I finally got my fall pictures developed so I had to play with them.

And some details...

I took this picture in Disney's Epcot, London of course.

I am having lots of fun making me own flowers right now. This is made with Shimmerz, fabric, cut glass, stickles and adhesive. A little sewing is involved but I think it is worth the effort.

I am so glad I am getting back on track...I will be back in a few days with some new December DT projects! Happy Scrapping!

Back from Disney!

We are back from Disney...Boo Hoo! What a fun trip! The kids loved it just as much as the last time and we have some great memories to look back on!

Here are a few of my favorites!

We loved staying at the Grand Floridian again! If your ever gonna visit this is the place to be!

Jack and Snow White...I was so glad he was not "too old" to love getting autographs and pictures with the characters. Can you imagine how many scrapbooks this girl is in, lol!

My handsome boys in front of the fountains in Epcot.

The beautiful gardens of Disney!

The Magic Kingdom during the holidays is amazing!

The Power Rangers!

I just love this picture of my nephew with his arm around my hubby!

Last but not least...Walt and Mickey!

I even did my first LO using my Disney pictures. I loved working with the North Pole Nights by Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker . This line is so adorable...

And a few details...

Off to Disney and GDC Product Testing...

We are off to Disney today for a family vacation! I can't wait for the sun, sand, and Mickey! So think of me laying on this very hammock on the beach at The Grand Floridian! I took this photo the last time I was there and plan on planting myself on it with a good book!

I just wanted to share these projects I did for GCD Studios as a product tester. Heidi requested I do a boys room decoration using the Vintage Boy line. I made this pencil holder and photo block for my nephew. This is another one of those homemade Christmas gifts I am bound and determined to make.

With all the extra's I also did this layout.

Here was my review of the products:

As a mom to two boys I jumped for joy when I saw all the boyish goodness in the box filled with the Vintage Boy line and a set of black glitter alphabets. I just love the texture of the GCD Studios paper, it really has a very rich, luxurious feel to it. The bold patterns and designs are totally original and really are fun to work with. It is totally versatile. Even though this is a "boy" line it worked perfectly on a beach layout...I also think these paper would be fabulous for some fall layouts. I love the look of the glitter alphabets as well. They have just enough sparkle to make them special. In each package are 5 sheets of letters and numbers. Plenty to last for quite a few projects. You can't go wrong with these products so be sure to add them to your wish list, happy scrapping!

Thanks so much for stopping by! See you in a week with lots of pictures and hopefully a bit of a tan!

Hello November!

It is 3:49AM, I can't sleep so I thought I would do a blog update! Better than digging into the kids Halloween stash although I just may do that too. I swear I hear a Snickers bar calling me!

I have not made a mini in forever so when the DT decided to do them this month for Black River Designs I dug in using my favorite pictures...this may very well be a Christmas gift for my MIL.

The kit at Dixie Pieces this month is the perfect fall kit. With 3 sets of alphabets and fabulous ribbon and papers be sure to snag one quick!

Here are a few projects I did using the kit!
Here is my handsome hubby!

This is Jack and my Mom at a horse show with his pony.

And a card!

Check out the gallery here for tons of other projects and inspiration!

I wanted to share a few more project from my Guest Designer gig at Bisous Boo.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
