Same 3 pics..

Same 3 pics.. same quote.. 3 different layouts..
I had a few good ideas (inspiration) I wanted to use, but not all on the same layout.. so I did three, one for the family album, one for Lynn's, and one for Ashley's.
Sooo much fun!!
Quote from February CK, a layout by Ria Mojica (page 97). Hers also features a pic of her girls holding hands.
This one was inspired by half of a layout by EKartch (my made-up nickname for Elizabeth Kartchner), love her stuff! The layout is also in the February CK (page 94).
Lastly, I hunted for a top note template for my journaling spot.. came away from Google tonight highly disappointed.. so I made one up! It's at the bottom of the post..
Patterned paper: Making Memories; Embossed paper: KI Memories, Love Elsie; solid papers: Bazzill, Die Cuts With a View. The swirl stamps are another latest fav by Autumn Leaves.
Watch for a Valentine's Day give away tomorrow!!

Door Decor..

Have been working on this for the past few days.. that seems to be how long it takes these days to complete a project with a fussy baby on one hip!
Found the heart design idea in the February CK by Mou Saha.. loved it!!
The frame was Provo Craft from JoAnn's with a 40% off coupon..
The rub ons: American Crafts mini marks collection, "Be Mine" Ned Jr. and the bracket, Fred.

3 more!!

These have been sitting on my table for a LONG TIME...
If they look familiar, paper, pictures, etc. they should, I did the set for Peyton's book, now I finally got them done for the family album.
I finished the last little bit last night after 11 while everyone was sleeping.. why couldn't I?! Even Peyton slept from about 8 pm to 7:30 am.. and I didn't get to enjoy Zs at the same time...
Peyton's Blessing: Patterned paper: My Mind's Eye; Cardstock: Bazzil; Cricut font: Doodletype; Text font: Gallery; other: yarn, baby rick-rack, lace (thanks Jacks!!), bracelet charms.

One more snow layout...

Last snow layout.. well, for 2008 at least :)
I have decided to list my products used too... might make it easier later!
JAN 08: Papers: Bazzill, KI Memories, Love Elsie, Provo Craft; Rub ons: Basic Grey; circle punches; and I used the Cricut, "Street Sign" font.

Some people laugh at me because I use ALL of my scraps.. the partial circles are scraps from the right-hand side of the above layout.
For You: Papers: Bazzill, Provo Craft; Jewels: Me & My Big Ideas.
Baby Boy: Papers: Bazzill, Provo Craft; Rub ons: Making Memories; Jewels: Me & My Big Ideas.

I have had these layouts sitting on my table, works in progress for the last few days. All that fogginess in my head made them come together slower that I like..
They are from last year's winter. I still have more, in progress!
This one is for Lynn's book:
And Ashley's book:
Supplies: Paper from Bazzill and the embossed snowflake paper is from KI memories Love Elsie line.. I made up the template for the background of the pics and used the Cricut "Cuttin' Up" (for the words "snow" and the girls' initials) and "Doodletype" for the snowflakes. I busted out the vellum, inspired by Jennifer McGuire from CK for that one! I am loving these new double dates stamps by Katie Pertiet from Autumn Leaves.. you should be seeing them a lot..

I am still a Royal at heart...

The girls are doing Little Laker cheerleaders this week, and cheering at a game... so, I made them some bows...
I still bleed black and gold though :)
