Another Xmas layout

Okay I got new camera for Christmas. It won't import the pictures into iPhoto so I guess I am going to have to learn a new photo editing program. In the mean time I could not crop this picture.
I used a Kerry Bradford story board for the pictures as well as some Kerry Bradford cut files for the silhouette… My daughter woke up on Christmas morning with the horrible upper respiratory infection I shared with her… So she is not feeling her best in any of the many Christmas pictures I took that day. I still have 5 more single layouts to do of Christmas pictures. LOL…

Happy New Years! I'm off to work on my One Word Journal cover now.

Working on Layouts

I've been busy on my days off during the holidays visiting with friends and family but also taking some me time to just be… I'm catching up on some of the 12X12 layouts I want to insert in my project life album.  This is  one is from Thanksgiving.

I used cricut elegant edges for the mat and pagoda for the flower. The title was cut on my silhouette. I don't remember the font….I always admire people who create these elaborate scrapbook pages but find mine always come back to LOTS of pictures with minimal embellishment… You should see the number of pictures I took at Christmas and the storyboards I created in Kerri Bradford's templates to get all the pictures in. I just feel the need to document it all!!!!

I've been doing a lot of personal reflecting and I signed up for Ali Edwards One Word class for 2014. I will be creating my cover page in the next day or so and will share. I also have 3 Christmas layouts done with 3 more to go.. Like I said I took lots of pictures.

craftroom reorganization

I feel my space is not working for me. I am moving my machines around and making more table space to work today. Hopefully this will inspire me actually get my project life caught up and I can do the two page Thanksgiving spread that I have the pictures printed for but haven't found the time to scrap. Then it will be all about the Christmas pictures.

More MCT gift card holders

Tis the season to be super busy. We had a wonderful thanksgiving here. The house is fully decorated for Christmas and I am down to just a couple gift cards needing to be purchased and I am all done with Christmas shopping. I am working on the year 2013 in my moms Christmas gift scrapbook so that will be done within the week. I had several requests from friends and family to make them some gift card holders... I made way more that a dozen of these for people last week. All different holiday patterned paper from my stash. I used the MCT gift card holder die, teeny tags greetings die for people to write who the card was for, medium stitched scalloped bow die and the gift cards sentiments for the merry Christmas embossed with green inkadinkadoo embossing powder.
I can't wait to finish my moms book and get back to working on my own project life that is now behind. Hopefully I will get November in there before December is up. LOL!
