Perfect day

Hello! I always love playing with mist. I took some time to play with mist and some embossing powder. I used this stamp in combination with a variety of different mists. This was my favourite result:

I am sure that I have mentioned how much I have enjoyed using Spellbinder dies! I think it's time to try these on a layout!

Thanks for stopping in!

Snow Ready

Hello! I saw this Winterland line by Fancy Pants and just *needed* it. Who can resist those mittens? (I am also having a bit of an obsession with snowflakes lately too...)

This pic was taken on our first day of really cold weather. Normally it starts getting cold around Halloween but it didn't get cold until December this winter.

Thanks for stopping by!

Tracking Santa

Hello! Can you manage just one more? One more Christmas-themed layout that is... Last one for a while, I promise. I just loved these pictures and this sheet of Prima patterned paper.

The journaling reads: There's nothing more fun than learning about maps and the world when you head onto NORAD's site and check out the holiday fun including tracking Santa.

Thanks so much for stopping in!

PS -Head over to the Pebbles blog for peeks at the new releases and some great giveaways this week!

Vintage "Hello" card

Hello! Do you find weekends go quickly? I do. I could always use a couple more hours to create ;)

A quick post with a card to share today.

I will admit that I have not been one to use stickers or chipboard, but I have been expanding my horizons and I am happy with the results! This pretty flower sticker is from the October Afternoon Farmhouse line.

Make mine a double *Pebbles Inc*

Hello! I have a project up for Pebbles this week. This week, we're all creating double pages! I knew exactly what pictures I wanted to scrap for this assignment (click on the picture to get a larger view):

The boat shaped felt embellishments were perfect for my theme, paired of course with Fresh Goods. Using a wave border punch was an easy way to help round out my water/boat theme!

Be sure to head over to the Pebbles blog and check out what my team members have created.

Thanks so much for stopping in! Have a great day!

To build & imagine

Hello! Do you put pink on a little boy page? I have seen it done well, but I tend to avoid it. This time around though, it seemed to be just the right touch.

Love watching imagination at work! I created this layout using the January kit from Up the Street Scrapbooking. I have really enjoyed all the October Afternoon in the kit.

Thanks for stopping in! Have a great day!

Adhesive Notes *Pebbles Inc*

Hello! I have a page to share with you today for Pebbles. My assignment was to create something using the Pebbles cool, new Adhesive Notes. I chose to create a page (I am sure you're not surprised :)! I love that scrapbooking has resulted in my taking more pictures of some of those extra special, everyday moments!

The With Love line was perfect for these pictures. I decided to use the sticky notes both as an embellishment and as a border on the page. I love the added pattern and colours, and how easy they are to reposition.

Be sure to head over to the Pebbles blog to see what my team members have created. There's also a giveaway posted for some adhesive notes!

Thanks for stopping in! Have a great day!

Cards from Up the Street

Hello! A quick post. I have a couple of cards to share. I created these from the Up the Street January kit. I threw in a little red for a little extra pop. Love that canvas fringe trim!

I enjoyed the October Afternoon journal cards, from the B side of Button Box, far more than I thought I would!

Up the Street January kit

Hello! I have a few things to share this week from Up the Street. The January kit will be available today. It is loaded with October Afternoon goodness; a lovely soft palette. I tried my hand at the 'laundry line' look for my first page. (Miss E is actually five in this shot, so I was pretty happy to have this particular flash card :)

I put together a frame for a dear friend. Of course, I didn't think to take the picture before I put the page into the frame. Sorry for the reflection, I just didn't want to take it apart too many times (I will have to open it again to add the picture).

I have another layout and a couple of cards to share later this week!
Thanks so much for stopping in!

PS -The draw for the RAK is still open in the previous post!

Happy New Year!

Hello! Welcome to 2012. I have lots to look forward to this year. Fewer renos, a trip to New York to see my brother and starting some canoeing. (Our little guy is finally old enough to listen, which greatly reduces the chance of him drowning himself...)

Each and every year, I get to start the New Year with a bang!

It's my thirty-(ahem)th birthday today. I am always asked if my parents received anything for having a baby on the 1st. Nope. But just because I didn't get anything doesn't mean you shouldn't get something :) I thought I would share a little present with you! This is the Studio Calico kit from August, called Boardwalk.

It is full/complete, in a nice clean box waiting for an address. If you'd like a chance to win, please leave me a comment and be sure your email address is available! (You don't need to be a follower ;) I am willing to send it anywhere but I will be sending it standard post. I will draw and post the winner on January 6th!

As always, thanks so much for stopping in. I appreciate all the visits and the great support! Here's to a happy and healthy New Year!
