The Perfect Routine!

Before I get to today's post, let me just say..... MERRY CHRISTMAS!!  I hope you and your families have a wonderful Christmas together and a blessed new year! 

Now, on to business!! We have a new challenge up at Frosted Designs and our Design Team has out done themselves again!! I love the variety of projects our team shares each week and I promise you will not be disappointed! This week we are asking you to use Fabric on your cards, layouts and projects! I know it sounds a little intimidating but really, it is not hard at all. Take a look at what the Frosted Designs Design Team did by clicking HERE!

Here is the layout I created....

I can't believe this is my little Lauren! She is growing up way too quickly!!
If you look closely, you can see that I used tulle on the flowers in this layout. See! It's that easy!! We would love to see what you can do! Hopefully all of you will get a break from the holiday celebrations for yourself and you can play along! We also have a link to an adorable scarf that Becky made.... you are going to want to make one too!!  Have a great day and an fabulous weekend!

More projects to share!

I am back with a few more projects that I created this year! I am still learning how to make cards so I don't always share them, but here are a few...

I had a lot of fun making these so I am sure I will make more in the future! I know the people who receive them always love the personal touch! 

I will be back tomorrow with a new layout for our newest Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs!

Sharing some layouts!

Hello everyone! It is hard to believe that Christmas is just 4 days away! I lucked out this year... my parents came for a visit, helped me finish all my shopping, wrapped all my gifts for me AND took them back to Indiana where we will be celebrating Christmas this year!!! It is so nice going into the holidays and not being completely stressed out! We are going to have a little fun tonight... we are going to Christmas in the Park at Six Flags and then tomorrow we are going to hang out at the Arboretum!

Since I am relaxed and ready for Christmas, I thought I would share a few layouts I created this year that never got  posted to my blog!

Looking back over some of my layouts this past year, I realized that my style really varies depending on who I am using in the layouts! I kind of like that! It keeps all my pages from looking the same!  :) 

I have some more projects to share with you tomorrow! See you then!

Miss You!

Wow! I can't believe that we are half way through December! November and December were very busy travel months for me and if I wasn't out of town, I had company!! All of it has been fun but it has kept me very busy! I wanted to share our newest challenge at Frosted Designs! This week we would like to see how you use Ribbon on your cards, layouts and projects! I know I always say this, but this time I really mean it.... our design team has created some incredible projects with fabulous ideas!! You really do need to check them out!! Here is the card I made...

If you link up your project, you have a chance to win some Graphic 45 papers!! Click HERE to go to Frosted Designs to get all the details!

The staff at Scrapbook News and Review has been very busy too! We just completed the 12 days of Christamas! Each day we made a tag or some other mixed media project with set by step directions so you can make them yourself! Here is the tag I created....

SNR sent out emails with the information on all of the projects but in case you are not on their email list, you can still find them on the SNR home page!

Guitar Wall Hanging

Good Morning! Can you believe it is December already? Wow! Where did the year go? I wanted to share a project with you that I completed with the help of my dad! My daughter, Lauren, wanted a rocked theme bedroom so we thought it would be cool to have a giant guitar to hang on the wall!  :)  I used the Hannah Montana cartridge to cut a pattern and then used the pattern with an overhead projector to make it really large. I traced the pattern on a piece of wood and my wonderful father cut it out for me!! He even sanded down all the edges and put lights on the back of it! All I had to do was paint it and add a few flowers and gems! I love the way it turned out and it looks great on my daughter's wall... especially at night!

Seriously... how cool is that?! Thanks for stopping by to check it out! Have a great weekend!
