brought to you by the number 3...

I had some time to work on some layouts so I finished 3. :)

This one makes me laugh because Jonah was only just shy of 4 weeks old and we were already tormenting him with pictures. *lol* And we were battling the cradle cap crap so his complexion was all weird at the time...
supplies: patterned paper: Kristina Contes Collection by Scrap In Style TV; letter stickers: Chatterbox; felt letters: American Crafts; transparency overlay: Hambly Studios; tag: College Press; pen: American Crafts; stamping ink: StazOn; other: staples

I created this layout after finding an old pic from my 29th birthday... I was 4 months pregnant at the time...
supplies: patterned paper: October Afternoon, Autumn Leaves; letters: American Crafts; felt flowers: Prima; journaling tag: College Press; stamping ink: ColorBox; pen: American Crafts; other: ribbon

And this is me with Jonah on my 30th year later...
supplies: patterned paper: October Afternoon; felt letters: Creative Cafe; price tag: Creative Imaginations; stamping ink: ColorBox; other: mini brads, string, ribbon

So I guess I could say I've been pretty productive. My goal for the year is to complete 100 layouts. 3 down, 97 to go... Haven't set a goal for cards and other projects yet... But I guess that will come in time. :)


Jonah's birthday is in less than 2 weeks and his party is coming up so I don't know how much I can scrap between now and then. I'm truly amazed at how fast time flies!

At almost 12 months he loves:
  • his sign language videos (he can sign "milk"!)
  • cruising around
  • climbing up the stairs
  • climbing off the couch
  • puffs
  • lots of time with Mommy and Daddy
  • his snoedel

Anyway, have a good rest of the weekend, everyone! :)

my moment finally arrived.

The other day a package arrived in the mail with my name on it. At first I was a little confused, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was my goodie box from my very first pub!

My very first published layout is on page 67. :)

Thank you Scrapbook Trends!

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend. :)

i'm too nice i guess.

Darn. I had this awesome plan to put Jonah to bed at his normal bedtime, forgo watching American Idol and being amused, and actually sit down and SCRAP.

Well, my awesome plan fizzled after getting a phone call from a friend and despite my "I gotta go now"s I was on the phone for an hour and a half and got one page done.

And now I'm too tired to scan it and share with you all.

*sigh* I was hoping to get at least 3 done tonight. Oh well...
