A quick one I did last week... just now getting to post it.  I watched a Glitter Girl (Shimelle) video about layering on Two Peas and made this great layout.

Ashley and Riley

The hardest part of our move for Ashely STILL is leaving her best friend Riley.  She still misses Riley and is constantly asking to visit her.  I had to scrap this cute picture of the two on their last day of pre-school.  We miss you Riley!

My mission is to get 2010 in the books... here is one towards that mission.  My baby was only two days old, she looks so little!

I spent almost all day Saturday (9AM -7:30 PM) at a huge crop.  There were 275 croppers!   I finished my December Daily all the way to day 31!.  I got a good start on Allison first year album (about 15 pages) and I did a hand full of layouts.  I am still trying to finish out 2010 so I can start into 2011.  I got close but darn it I still have a few 2010 layouts to do.

 We got a My Minds Eye kit with our admission and it was Christmas papers, which was great because I had all my 2010 Christmas photos to do.  Just a quick layout about Ashley's 4 wheeler from Santa.  The trees came from a layout by Nicole Samuels on Basic Grays blog around Christmas time, I think they turned out really cute!

 Another layout with my MME kit and more 2010 Christmas photos!
 Another layout with my MME kit, I got my worth out of it!

This one is a hodge podge of what I had on hand.  The "let it snow" was a card front that I received from Davinie when I won a prize on her blog years ago.  It was so cute and I didn't want to waste it so I made a layout around the card colors.

This is just a small sampling of what I got accomplished!  I wish I could do this once a month and then I would get caught up!

It has been forever since I made a layout.  We got this great picture of David and Susan recently from their Aunt Donna and it matched my January Studio Calico kit perfectly.  I used this layout by Layle Koncar as inspiration (read scraplift).  I need to add some journal strips but I was going to consult with David to see if he remembers anything in particular about this day/horse/etc. (Susan how about you?).

I am preparing for Scrap-a-Palooza this weekend!  It is a lot of hard work to make sure you have everything you might think you need for a long crop.  I have lots of photos printed and hope to finish Allison's 1st year album!

Allison 14 months

I have not done an update in awhile and Allison seems to be really changing so I thought I would get some thoughts down.

  • Waves bye bye
  • Claps
  • Loves to dance (bounces, spins and waves her hands in the air)
  • Words - mama, dada, dog, uh-oh, hi
  • Will imitate the moo sound
  • Can find her belly and nose
  • Transitioning to one nap a day (usually around 2 hours)
  • Drinks from a straw, cup or beer can (but mostly her sippy)
  • Loves to brush her teeth before bed
  • Sleeps 8PM to 7 AM
  • Wearing 18 month clothes
  • size 4 diapers
  • Going to a daycare four days a week (no more nanny)
  • Threw a full out fit last week (head throwing, rolling on the floor, etc.)
  • Loves to do whatever her big sis or the big kids are doing
  • Still a fairly quite laid back kid 
  • Lots of thick hair
  • Did great with Grandma and Grandpa M over New Years while we traveled to a wedding
  • Attached to her mommy
  • Breaking out on her tummy (she has my skin)
  • Loves to read books/turn pages
  • Does fairly well playing by herself for short periods of time
  • Will give me snuggles in the morning when I wake her up
  • 4 upper teeth, 3 lower and is getting her two molars on top
More on Allison's fit.... WOW.  Nothing about last week was normal for Allison, she was going to daycare for the first time all day and we spent every night at the hospital with Dave's mom.  She was also transitioning to one nap and was not sleeping very much.  Sadly we were those people.... if people were staring they didn't have kids, if people were laughing well they have kids.  It all came down in the hospital cafeteria and it was a doozy.  I didn't think my sweet baby had it in her but I guess she does.

DD Day 25


YEAH it's done!!!!! Nothing fancy here but I have a completed album!!!! Last night as I was finishing it up I started thinking about why not go thru the 31... I took the notes, have the pictures.  We will have to see, I'm doing a whole day crop next Saturday so I might just take this with me and see what I feel like working on.

DD Day 24


Christmas Eve morning at Dave's parents equals Turner Christmas.  Lots of stocking stuffers, gift cards wrapped uniquely (my was in a ball of duct tape), yummy breakfast and pancakes!  I needed more space for photos so I grabbed a losing scratch off that I got as a stocking stuffer.

DD Day 22


Remember this album.... I am just getting back into it to finish it up.  I have all my photos printed through the 25th and sadly now that the holidays are over I just might stop there and not to the end of December.  We will have to see how the next week goes.
