“My Faves for 2011!”

One of the members at Challenge Heaven, Leah Cameron thought it would be a good idea for us to post our Fave Layouts from 2011 and share them with you all! What a great idea Leah!  I have done a lot of scraping this yr looking back and so many happy memories! It was a big decision but here are my top 10 in no particular order!!

This was a fun challenge to use black and blights. Couldn’t go past this pic of Cody as a bub!

This was a pic of where my grandmother lived when we were little! I loved doing the collage!

                    I loved this pic of Cody, he is growing up too fast!

This was a double layout to show that J is a bit of a home body and that he has settled so well into me Home Schooling him!

I was trying our a different style and trying to learn how to match patterns here!

      I did a workshop to show the girls how to mosaic on a layout! Pics of JJ and Dad!

This was a challenge lo to used pattern papers in a different way! I had always wanted to try to quilt some pattern papers!

This was my wedding day and is my fave layout that I have done so far for my Stampin’ Up! album.

I love this photo of mum when she was 21.  I scanned the original and had to scrap it!

This is a 6×12 I did earlier in the year of my niece Crystal and me! She is the only niece I have and we are very close!

          I had to sneak this one in too out of my December Daily, as it was a fun Xmas Day!


I don’t think I will be scrapign so many in 2012 as I am sarting my project 365 in one more sleep!! lol!!

There are so many layouts I love that I have done this yr and I hope you enjoyed a little ‘walk down memory lane” with me!

Happy New Year!

“Finished December Daily Album! :)”

As I was making a mess yesterday I left it out to finish of my DD today! I am sooo pleased with the way it turned out and it is all together and looks like it is in a box!

I had a few great pics so I decided to do a double page! Pictures of dad mucking around and some others!

                         Got a couple of good photos of me Cody JJ and me!

                            This gives you an idea of how the album looks!

                   I just finished off the back cover with some ink and a quote!

I just added a few ribbons to the large binder rings that I used in the album to finish it off! I won’t need to make a separate December Album net yr as I will be nearly finished my 365 Album!!

“Money Wallets!”

My boys went around to their dad’s a little earlier today and after I had a little Nana nap, I thought I would whip up a couple of Money Wallets for my niece and nephews as we give the the “teens’ money!!! I thought they came up quite cute and look more like a present then a plain old envelope!!

I made this one from my Stampin’ Up! stash, using the Cherry Cobbler cs, and my favourite Letter to Santa DSP, retired Riveting Stamp set, scallop border punch and scallop circle punch!

The pic below below shows it open where you put the money in and the cute belly band which holds it closed!!

These are the other two that I just used whatever card-stock I had in my stash and the reverse side of the pattern paper!

This is the Video Tutorial from a very talented Demo in the USA!

“Tis The Silly Season!”

Hope you have had a lovely day, we have!! Lots of presents and food and drink!! It certainly was the ‘silly season’ at mum and dad’s this afternoon trying to get dad not to muck up my’ family photo shoot!!’ He couldn’t help himself and we all had fun! He was getting into the Xmas Spirit! lol!!

These photos make me smile, as CJ, JJ and Gran were trying not to laugh at dad and he was determined to play up! Great pics to put into my December Daily to finish it off!

“Xmas Wishes!”

Just a short post from my family to yours: to wish you a Very Merry Xmas and the Happiest and Best for 2012!

Thanks to all my friends on-line and in real life for your support this 12 months with my ups and down with mum and dad! It has been greatly appreciated and so nice to know you are there!!

I have some new classes planned for 2012 from February and look forward to some more fun Sunday afternoons with you all!!  I am having January off for some time out with my boys and hope to get to the beach a few times this yr and some fishing!!

I hope you have all ‘been good” and Santa pays you a visit on his way through tonite!!

Have a great day tomorrow with your families and stay Safe!
