I was able to squeeze in some scrappin' time yesterday and came up with two layouts. The first started out as a challenge at A Cherry On Top, to scraplift a Christmas layout but change the Holiday. I used an Easter picture taken this past Easter in England with Mark's sister two kids. I think it is a mix of that scraplift and a lift from one of my favorite designers, Andrea Deer. Thanks Andrea for the inspiration, you really are my favorite designer :) The second page I used my custom paper from Scrappin' Sports & More. Catching turtles is something the kids do every trip to the cottage during the summer.

I was able to complete this layout after returning home from Christmas at my parents house. I used my fabulous custom paper from Scrappin' Sports & More. I mean, who doesn't want paper that has your name printed on it!
We were so blessed this year that everyone was able to attend and everyone was well :) We even had a couple of new additions to the celebrations as two more of my nephews brought their girlfriends. It just doesn't seem like they should be old enough for that!! I can't believe another Christmas has come and gone. The days just seem to fly by. Here's looking forward to a wonderful & relaxing weekend, hopefully full of new creations.

The past couple of weeks have been very busy! First of all, I finished another 12 pages for a client. Then I started on my Christmas gift for my sister and I am happy to say I completed 31- 8x8 pages in just over a week!! Woo Hoo I am really happy with how they turned out. We have also been busy with Basketball games, Indoor Soccer, School Play, School Band concert & making cookies. Hope you enjoy the photos :)

Have you ever wished you could create your own paper...maybe with your kids names or a favorite pet name, how about that special place? Well, wish no more my friends. SS&M has a new line of custom papers. You pick the colors and the words from some already designed layouts and presto....custom paper. Just call Scrapbooks and you can order in quantities of 12 papers. So what are you waiting for????

Man...where are the days going???? I've been fighting this cold for the past 3 weeks and it's really putting me behind. Not the time of the year to be sick.
I had the best time last night. Victoria's coaches decided that the mom's should scrimmage the girls in basketball. I thought my heart was going to come out of my chest the first 15 minutes. It was a lot of fun! We used our secret weapon....yup, took them down with our hips. LOL
Anyway....off to the creative side of things....Scrappin' Sports & More has come out with a new sports line called Sports on Fire. It was perfect for Victoria's soccer team, the Blue Flames. I also created a small Christmas flip out book. Today I received my Scrappin' Sports & More custom papers. We each got to design 4 custom papers. I can't wait to use them, they all turned out really amazing.
