My Girl

 I don't very often get to scrap pics of me so I was very anxious to find just the right paper, layout and embellies for this one of Azelyn and I. I have to say it was tough trying to find paper that worked with the shirt I was wearing but with Melissa's help I did it!! It is the same Kaiser Kraft paper I used for my Kraftin' Kimmie Day layout but it is such fabulous paper!!
 I made my first ribbon flower using a gluber!! The center is a button I got out of my Aunt's button jar (: I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. The other flowers are Recollection. The bling is Zva and Kaiser. The crocheted lace is dollar store. I cut the circle die cut with cricut's Elegant Edges (an amazing cartridge!!), the title with Storybook, and the leaves with an MS punch. The cs is BoBunny Double Dot!! I am so in love with that paper!! It makes matching so much easier!! The layout was inspired by one I saw in Scrapbooks Etc.
 I'm thinking I might actually frame this one for my living room, my walls are purple (: so it would go really well.

 I am entering this layout in Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge- Borders and Flowers.

it or not, I'm back!! I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post ): I've been pretty busy over the last few weeks, between work, my kids, Halloween, and being away every other weekend!!!

 I had a beautiful weekend last weekend at Blue Mountain Resort!! A bunch of us girls went away for my Aunt Nise's 60th birthday. We had a blast shopping at all of the wonderful little stores, eating at the fabulous restaurants, and spending the afternoon at the Scandinave Spa!! I would recommend it to anyone!!

 Two weeks before that I was away at Fall Flurry, a weekend that the ladies from OC Scrapbookers put on. It has quickly become an annual event for my friend Jen and I!! We are like little kids before Christmas, counting down the days (: I thought I would do a few layouts and then maybe get my Christmas cards done while I was there, but I was having such a good time with the layouts that that is all I did all weekend!! I managed to complete 20 pages!! My record so far for these weekends. I just finally got pictures taken today (it's not raining or snowing so I could go outside and take them) so now I should have some regular posts for awhile!

 The layout I am posting today is actually the one I did with my Scrapping Group last Friday. It is the first layout from CTMHs Believe WOTG. I changed it up a bit by swapping some of the papers, using the Cocktail Alpha stamp and adding some Liquid Applique to santa but other then that it is pretty much the same. All products are CTMH except for the copics I used to colour Santa's suit.
 The pics are of my kids last Christmas morning. It's not very often I get Codie in pics with the little ones these days so these will be special when they are older. They were all still a little bit sleepy but I think they're cute (:
