Getting Scrappy!

Hey there!  How was your Christmas? Ours was good! We have much to be grateful for and are truly blessed.  I still can't believe it's already come and gone.  All that preparing we do for 20 mins of gift-giving!  It's crazy fun!  LOL  Brody and Chloe were so much fun to watch this year.  They were all smiles and Brody was over-the-moon happy about getting candy in his stocking! The kid LOVES some sugar!  He is an Angry Birds FREAK!  He is constantly on our phones playing every chance he gets.  Renee even made a shirt for him for Christmas..... check this out.... isn't he cute?  Man I love this kid!

So now that Christmas has come and gone..... I was able to find some time to scrapbook some layouts for me. :) Some fun ones.  I know I've scrapped my wedding pics many times but I love them.... LOL.... what can I say?  And Shane and I celebrated 5yrs on the 16th so I had marriage and wedding on the brain. :) 

I also finally scrapped Cassidy's 9th birthday photos!  Love them and have been nervous about scrapping them cause I want to do them justice.  Hopefully I did.  She's at her Dad's this week for the rest of Christmas break along with Bailee and Macey but I'm anxious to show this to her.  I think she will like it.  I haven't scrapbooked her in a while.  LOL  I hand drew the letters for the title work to match the "Love" in her shirt.  I was pretty excited with how it turned out.

Okay..... just a quick post tonight. I have some monthly Design Team work to get started on for Spellbinders.  I'm soooooo excited cause I made it to the next round of the 2012 DT Competition.  Nervous and crossing my fingers to advance again!  I love this company and would love to keep creating for them!  Okay..... off to design some more! 

Happy New Year's!!!!

Holiday fun

Hey there!  How are your holiday festivities coming along?  I know, if you're like us, there's always a lot to do, and see and much fun to be had.  I'm trying to relax and enjoy this time of year.  With teenagers and small children I know I need to soak it all in while I can because tomorrow comes too quickly.  We have a busy weekend ahead.  Shane and I will be married 5yrs on Friday.  And Bailee will be turning 14 on Saturday.  With team soccer parties, Cassidy's Christmas play tonight, and Basketball games starting Thursday.... the rest of the week is going to fly by.  SO..... I thought I would pop in here and say hey and share a few things I've created lately.  Some are just because, some are for the holiday and some are for magazine calls. 

But before I get to the creative goodies..... I want to share my very favorite things!  My sweet family!  We ran out of time to take a big family photo with all of us in it.  It seems like we are always running in different directions these days.  So I had to get creative with the individual shots this year.  So excited to stick these in the Christmas cards!  I hope ya'll are good and busy and blessed!
