Studio Portraits

Just a few recent shots of the kids. I never have luck making Micah smile for the camera but the photographer kept making farting sounds and he thought it was the most hilarious thing.

I'm finishing up on my December Daily album and hope to post it by the weekend.

CHA Eye Candy

Why is scrapbooking so addictive? Because they come out with new and cute things all the time. CHA (craft and hobby association) is underway and all the peeks for the new releases have been posted. Some of my favorites:

1) Queen & Company their felt flowers and embellishments

2) Cosmo Cricket all of their new paper lines are colorful and fun

3) American Crafts love all the bright patterns, the baby line will be perfect for Baby Amphone's book 4 months from now

4) MME, the bloom and grow line is so pretty

5) Making Memories, I already purchased some of the love notes, but waiting for the flower patch to make it's way to my lss

6) Scribblescrabble I usually don't like papers with a mutted pallatte but the ideas posted makes me want all of them

7) Pink Paislee wow, the DT knows how to work those embellishments

Cricut Vinyl

I had a couple friends over Friday night to scrapbook and they wanted a demonstration of my cricut machine since they are just new to scrapbooking and saw it advertised on tv. I must admit I haven't used mine for almost a year since purchasing it but now I'm hooked on it because of the vinyl and thinking of getting the scal to cut any font from my computer.

I've been searching for just the right quote for several weeks now and just happened to be browsing layouts and blogs and saw this quote as a blog header and decided to steal it for my room (thanks Pearl). Wish I had enough of the red vinyl to keep the same font but I used it for two other projects and stretched the scraps as much as possible.

The picture on the canvas was just taken this weekend. I didn't have any good pictures of both my kids so I decided to take them to portrait innovations. I wasn't impressed with them but I did love this shot and it's the only print I have so it's proudly displayed.

This was a lift from my friend Gretchen, it was a lot of fun playing with inking and random circles after sticking to boxy designs lately.

These two layouts were created from inspired blueprint's sketches, they have an amazing design team and wonderful inspiration.

This layout is for the pagemap's blog sketch contest. Just starting to dig into my million Christmas photos. Had my root canal this morning, yuck! I was still numbed up pretty good and was aching more after then I was coming in so I took the rest of the day off and spent it in my scraproom. I so need more days like this to myself.
