So after a week of on and off playing around I was FINALLY able to update the look of the blog!! SO excited to have finally figured it out!

So I am almost done with organizing the new scrap space! I just need to solve the problem of no electric on that side of the room! And I want to get an Ottlite to have next to my desk-I don't mind the overhead lighting, but when hubby is watching TV he is not going to want the overhead lights on. So those pictures will be coming soon! After some searching I am excited to see that the Ottlites have become more fashionable and updated their look! I think this is the one I want to get!

OK I promised I would post some eye candy for you so here it is. :)

These first two are made with Echo Park paper lines. Yes I still have baby pictures that I have to scrap yet! I was SO excited to see that the colors of the Little Boy line worked PERFECTLY with the colors of my pictures and the sailboats were perfect!

For this layout I used the Echo Park lines Sweet Summertime and Playground. Love how it all just went together perfectly! I pop dotted the beautiful sunshine, flowers, arrow and sun and clouds. And to make my letters pop I used my favorite Inkessentials white pen and made faux stitching around my letters.

This is from our trip to Lego land a couple summers ago. This Imaginisce line is SO much fun and I just had to use some of it for this picture with the Lego clown! I had lots of fun cutting out elements from the paper to pop dot and use as embellies! I even used DoodleBug rub-ons on the journaling card to add the year they fit perfectly! Though I just noticed that I didn't write the journaling! OOPS!

Well I am coming down with a cold so I need to go find some Kleenex, my blankie and the couch! and I should grab that layout and a journaling pen!

New Year New Posts!!!

Stand back and duck as I blow the dust off this blog! Ok now that the dust and cobwebs seem to be gone onto it! 2011 was CRAZY! SOOO much happened and it seemed life was BEYOND crazy!! 2012 is going to be a productive reorganized year! We moved in August and bought our first house we are still not fully settled and I am working on my new scrap space! I think this weekend we will get some shelves and get it finished! : ) Then I will post some pics of the new set-up! With the new set up I plan on being in my space everyday and creating away! I plan to get back on track with my teaching at Michael's and I am going to get back on some design teams! I REALLY enjoyed being on design teams and miss it! I also plan to do several posts a week. I am saying all of this out loud and putting my plans in writting so I can hold myself accountable! I am also thinking about/throwing around some ideas with additional scrappy plans I have so stayed tuned for that!

Well since the holidays have come and gone SO fast its time to scrap them! ; ) And I found this ADORABLE album at Archiver's and just HAD to have it! LOL!! After some thinking I decided I am going to use this as an album to put the boys picture with Santa at Macy's in every year. I thought it would be cool to have all the years together in one place!

Well I need to go deal with the laundry calling for me! : (

Till Next time!



Thanks For Visiting!
