The Nutcracker

The pictures here on stage are a little blurry. Don't know how to make them better. The girls were so adorable dancing. I love every minute of this and could have sat and watched much more!


I made a layout with two pictures from the past couple of months. I need to scrapbook more! I love it. I used a challenge from The Studio Challenges to put a tag on it. Thanks for looking!

My oldest

 Red ribbon week was awhile ago and one of the days she was supposed to wear sports clothes. We don't have much of that, but had just received from my mother-in-law this shirt of Steve's from when he was a kid. Super cute on her!

 This picture she drew yesterday. Starting left top: I heart u all, Mermaid, ariel is a princess. The mermaid is saying Mermaid and next to her is the surfboard. Then it is from Joy, to Mom, to Dad, to Nina, to Joy, to Bebe, to Unkie J, to Holly and to Bear; from Joy and Nina.

Stockings 2012

I scrapbooked!!! I have been determined for the past month to do more and I have a page I started two weeks ago and haven't finished, but I did this one tonight! The picture isn't great due to poor lighting. Will try to replace this weekend. I used Some Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer mist, a stencil by Gourmet Rubber stamps, and Fired Brick distress ink to created the spray and star background. I also used some MME Winter Wonderland washi tape and a Me & My Big Ideas Soft Spoken Christmas sticker that says Tradition. Simple, but I am happy to get my mojo going again! I used a sketch from Let's Get Sketchy Week 4 of October. TFL!

Celebrate it Clean & Simple!

Two cards in one day...its a little bit crazy!
I used another sketch (I needed help to get my mojo going after so long). This one comes from Clean & Simple Stamping blog, sketch #256. I used a Lizzie Anne Designs stamps with a little self adhesive twill ribbon and some gems! Thanks for looking!

Simple Blessings....a card! Can you believe it?!

I haven't made a card all summer. My youngest one was done with naps and this momma didn't have many breaks. I probably should have made time to craft, I might have been a more sane person. But that's how it goes sometimes.
This card features Unity stamps and ink from Colorbox. I used this weeks sketch, #44, from CAS(E) this Sketch! I had this green leaf brad too, but it was in my stash of stuff and I don't know who made it. Thanks for stopping by!

Nina's 2nd Birthday

Since Nina just turned 3, I thought it would be good to scrapbook a few pictures from last years birthday. I have not been scrapbooking much over the past year except I finished Nina's 1st year. I'm determined to do better!
I used the April sketch from C'est Magnifique to get me going on this layout. I used papers and stickers from Echo Park A Walk in the Park. The ribbon on top is by May Arts Diagonal Sripes Pink Ribbon. I love this ribbon!!! I used the Martha Stewart butterfly punch and a cheap dollar butterfly punch (the tiny one). I also used up some of my Making Memories teal mini staples.
It makes me so happy to use my stuff and make a pretty page! Thanks for stopping by and looking!
