Wish Come True

My oldest had been asking for a Playstation 3 however since we already have a Wii I told him I certainly wasn't paying for one. Sounds kind of mean but I have a love/hate relationship with video games ;). Anyway, he was planning on saving up his money to buy one until I found out they were available on Airmiles and I had offered to get it using our Airmiles.
These are the photos I snapped of the kids when they came home from school and saw the PS3 had been delivered.

Christmas Cards vol.1

It is that time of year, Christmas card time! I can't remember how many years I've been making my own Christmas cards, at least 5 years. I still love doing them! I usually mass produce one or two designs but I've just purchased some super cool new product and with the help of the Card Crew challenges at Scrap Shotz, at least 7 people will get different cards from me this year, lol.

Here are my first two Christmas cards on the card making drive:

This tree is the small stacker tree by Dee's Distinctively dies which I have cut out of Elizabeth Crafts Green Metallic Shimmer Sheetz. I've used pop dots to pop it up and accented with Queen and Co. pearls.

This next card uses the same tree die,

which I have cut out of white cardstock adhered to double sided Sookwang tape, peeled off the liner to expose the sticky side and then covered with Glitter Ritz warm highlights glitter. The sparkle on this tree is just beautiful IRL.

More cards to come, thanks for looking!

Scrap Shotz Layout Tag

Layout tag is always so much fun and we are in midst of a tag with a twist you can check out here and play along with us at Scrap Shotz.

Here is my layout from our October layout tag:

I substituted pattern paper for some of the photos in the layout I lifted, all papers are Sketchbook by Amy Tan, quote is an Ali Edwards stamp. Love how this turned out!

Thanks for looking :)

All You Need Is Love

I was inspired by a Maggie Holmes layout over at Studio Calico and came up with this. Studio Calico, Amy Tan, Crate Paper, October Afternoon, Kesai art...lots of scrappy goodies on this.

With all the product the best part is still this photo of my sweet kids!

Thanks for looking :)

Project Life Week 43

This week saw 3 of us head to Mesquite, Nevada for a baseball tournament and the other 3 go to Grandma & Grandpa's for a few days. Unfortunately no photos of the kids at G & G's but a few from our trip. Here's the layout:
Lots of different pieces in addition to the photos, a note I left for my youngest son, part of our air reservation confirmation and a piece of the tournament schedule along with the program from church the Sunday before we left. I busted out the date stamp as well, another quick and easy layout!

Thanks for looking and now I am back on track, all caught up...until next week anyways ;)))

Project Life Week 41 & 42

Another couple of weeks of Project Life to share. The closer I get to the end of the year the happier I am with sticking with this, even with falling behind at times. I've been keeping the book in my office with plans to put it out on January 1, 2013 for everyone to look back over the course of the previous year. The family is going to love looking through it!

Here's Week 41:

A few more photos on this than the last few weeks. I've been experimenting adding words directly to my photos and I like the end results. I even computer journaled on this week, I don't do that very often.

Week 42

I ended up sick a couple of days this week and add to that spending lots of time prepping projects for the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival there was no time (or energy) to take photos. This note my daughter wrote for her brother took center stage on this spread. Simple and quick to finish :)

Project Life Week 39 & 40

I've been working away getting caught up on PL.

Week 39 - I only took one photo this week, just didn't get around to picking up the camera so I've filled the pockets with the church bulletin, a football ticket from our CFL team and a part of my daughter's receipt for school fees. I love that "Laugh, Love..." card, it's part of the Clementine PL core kit.

Week 40, this is a photo of the page including my little guy's artwork from bible study I've added in front of the page. Here is the full page:
Again, light on the photos again so I've added one of the core kit filler cards in addition to a piece of pp from my stash.

That's weeks 39 & 40! Thanks for looking :)
