More Scrapbooking

 Happy Thanksgiving Eve to everyone.... I am in the mode to get my 2010 scrapping wrapped up.  I need to start on a little someones first year album, finish my 2010 vacation scrapbook and start 2011. PLUS (and it's a big plus) I am going to attempt to do a December Daily ala Ali Edwards.  On the above layout I used a kit from Cropping at Archivers.
This one is a kit too from a class I took at CKC St. Louis at least two or three years ago.

Timber is scraplifted from a layout by Kelly Purkey using my Studio Calico November kit Handmade.
Thanksgiving was scraplifted from a layout by Daniela Dobson again using my Studio Calico November kit Handmade.

What can I say I was in a scraplifting mood!

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels.  Mmm mmm sweat potatoe casserole is in my near future!

A quick one using a combination of Studio Calico kits.  This is the first movie Ashley and Aidan saw in the movie theater (Princess and the Frog) and sadly we haven't been since.

P.S.  Happy Birthday Abby!!!!

Daisy scout

Say hello to the newest Girl Scout.  Ashley was very excited to attend her first Daisy meeting tonight.  She's a third generation Girl Scout; I was one, my mom and Davids mom.


It's been awhile... I had to take a break to watch the Cardinals win the World Series!!!!  I wanted to scrapbook this weekend but I did not have much creative effort in me.  These were very simple and quick.  Sometimes I just need that to get me going again.  I think I did both of these layout in under an hour while Allison napped and Ashley colored on the floor next to me.

My Studio Calico November box is on its way... so I hope to get some more scrapbooking done this week!

Happy Birthday Allison

Our baby girl turned one this weekend!!  It was a small party with family and some friends.  She will be rocking a whole new wardrobe this winter thanks to everyone. Allison didn't really tear into the cake, she was more interested in eating the candy corns that rimmed the bottom.  All it took was a wash cloth to clean her hands and face, unlike her older sister who required a bath.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween from a little chick and super girl.
