Hello 2011!

Can't believe how quickly 2010 went by, it was a wonderful year and I hope 2011 is filled with just as much happiness and joy to one and all!

We just hung around at home all day. My kids drove me crazy...they played Just Dance on the wii and Kenzie and Micah fought all day when one of them didn't get the first prize ribbon for dancing. Then they whined when one got mad at the other and wouldn't play nicely. Then Paxton would go running off with their toys and the older ones would come crying to me. All day was MOM!!!

My husband actually went to Lowe's hardware to buy wood and spent the day framing up our unfinished utility room which will become my new scraproom! I'm sure it will drag on for months but at least he's started it. We've actually had plans to do this almost a year ago but it's always been put on the back burner.

And now for the scrap-room's January kit reveal.

1) Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934
The photos were taken last year when all the kids were sitting at the doctor's office waiting to get their flu shots.

2) Fancy Pants Happy Together

Makenzie's first concert was Salena Gomez. We stood in line for a poster booklet and she came home and tore it all apart and taped it up all around her room.
We watched Andale High's football game at my 15 yr reunion. They were throwing out t-shirts into the stands after the first touchdown and Lam snagged one for Micah even though it was a size XL.

3) Jillibean Soup Atomic Soup

4) Bella Boulevard Lovey Dovey - coming my recipe card :)
Such a cute cute line!

And a couple cards. Oopsie, I can't believe I missed the "h" on this one. I ran out of this letter sticker and was going to go back with a black ink pen to make the l into an h and totally forgot until it was revealed today.

Ten days and counting!

Is everyone ready for christmas? I'm not! I have so much to do and so little time to finish it all. Being sick and having sick ones doesn't help out at all. The kids are finally better but I"m still holding onto this nasty cold I"ve had for days. We haven't even made our yearly trip to sit on Santa's lap yet...I"m hoping we can get that done this weekend.

Today Makenzie told me that she watched Hellen Keller at school and it was sooo sad. She told me she only dropped one tear though. My girl is so thoughtful sometimes. She see's a lot of homeless people lately as we drive around town and tell me she wants to give them some of her toys and candy that she doesn't like.

On christmas eve, she will be singing in the choir with her class. The girls will dress up like Mary and the boys as Joseph and they will bring their scrolls to the manger. She is super excited and have been talking it up for days.

People have asked what Micah wants for xmas and here's his Santa list. He wants mighty beans, baulkagons, criss cross crasher, Muno (Uno) cards, building thing...and that's it, he says.

Paxton hasn't added many new words to his vocab yet. He does seem to understand a lot better and can respond his famous...Nah or bob of his head though. He's been getting a ton of teeth in lately...I think 5 new ones already. He loves to ride piggyback on his sister, they do that everynight.

It's fun to watch the kids play with old toys (Micah's Thomas train sets) and reading old books (peek-a-boo ones).

Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays. I've opened up an early xmas Mark 5D!! Super excited so I'll have lots of photos to share if I can ever get caught up.

Christmas Kit

If you are in search of a scrapbooking kit chalked full of the latest and greatest papers and cute embellishments, then you have to go get yourself a TSR kit. I always love working with my December kits, it gets me in the Christmas mood. The design team did a fabulous job, you must check out all the inspiration in the idea gallery.

This month, we have Basic Grey - Jovial

I just love the matching chipboard snowman, and check out the electic chipboard alphabet from the embellishment add-on kit was a great combo. They can be easily painted to match your page too, here I painted the "day" in black.

With this layout, I used my EK Success swiss dots punch. I've had it for awhile and didn't like it much but thought it worked great on this page.

Jillibean Soup - Christmas Soup

Calling all kraft lovers, this kit is for you! I used my new extra large scalloped punch for the bottom border...loving it!

Crate Paper - Snow Day

For the Maya Road calendar pieces I created a hanging calendar with the crate line. It is four 6x6 sheets of chipboard just tied together with some spare ribbon.

And finally, we have the TOWER of MILK DUDS! The stamp kit was created to easily wrap around a Hershey's nugget bar but I didn't have any on hand so digging through my kid's leftover Halloween stash still hidden in the pantry, I came up with this idea. Love the polka dots!

I have lots of extra little projects to share but my household has caught the bug ever since Thanksgiving day and I"m still trying to recover myself. Be back in a few.
