my latest creations...

Here's a layout that was completed a few months ago...  I know, I know, I'm just getting around to posting it...it's crazy.  Anyhoo, Parker was uber excited about this rainbow lollipop, and I just love rainbow anything, so I had to get her picture enjoying her special treat.  I used my silhouette and Quickutz dies for the lettering.  The little banner triangle was a quickutz die also.

The following pictures will show you one of the reasons I've been so busy and haven't been blogging or entering contests lately. I've been working on a baby album for my new little nephew Tomichi!  I'm late in sending it since he was born premie!  He was a Thanksgiving baby, but wasn't supposed to be here until today!  He's doing great and is at home with mommy and daddy and sister after about a month and a half in the NICU. 

It probably takes me a little longer than most people to create an entire album, but I don't mind because I simply enjoy the creative/design process.  I typically create a beginning page for the ultrasound pics as well as newborn pics and then a page for each month.  I've found that the We R Memory Keepers 8X8 sleeves that are split for two 4X6's work great in between each layout.  That way, the momma can add 3 pictures for each month!  I used some of my new Hero Arts stamps as well as oldies but goodies.  The style and papers used are from the same line that I created his sister's album with...monkeys and frogs.  Which made it a little easier for me since I've already done an entire album with monkeys and frogs.  Hope you enjoy the pics.  I apologize for the glare.  I like to put them in the book once they're done so that I don't mess 'em up!  TFL!


Happy New Year!!

I'm a week late, but Happy New Year all the same!  I've got pictures to post and layouts to share. but I've been working on a new baby album for my little premie nephew Tomichi, so everything else has to wait.  I've been trying to keep up with blogs, posts, websites, FB and emails, and {whew} that takes a lot of time!!  So, I've got tons of layout and project ideas bouncing around in my head that I almost don't know where to start.  Gotta finish the baby album first, then organize my crazy head and get started on some projects that I can share.  I love to see all of your creativity and inspirational ideas and cards!  Soon I will join in the fun again (especially with the challenges -- love those!)

Here's our Christmas photo!  Hope you all had a merry season!
