Creative Scrapper sketch #135. I am trying to use up some of my stash and these My Mind's Eye papers seemed perfect for these photos. I stitched a scalloped circle and then layered papers over it. I stamped the trees. Created the St. Nick banner and made the little card which reads, if you don't believe, you won't receive! The photos are of Mollie, Megan and Mackenzie with Santa Claus, Christmas Eve 2007 at my parents!

Creative Scrappers sketch #136. I love these Echo Park papers. This photo is of the Immaculate Conception parish party which was held on the Feast of the Holy Family. Each grade presented something and the kindergarten and 1st grade enacted the Nativity scene. I stitched around the background and made a little patchwork design. I cut out ornaments with the Cricut and embellished each one. The title is a reminder that Christmas is nothing without Christ!

I created this layout for another Creative Scrappers sketch challenge. I used soft pastel papers for a girly look. I added a gathered ribbon border, cut out cute little baby girl clothes and arranged them around the photo. I used a piece of flowered ribbon and added beads to the centers. I cut the title with my Cricut and used journaling strips. This is Mollie about 2 days old!
This layout was created for a Creative Scrappers challenge, Sketch #126. I used Bo Bunny papers, most of which were scraps from previous layouts. I cut snowflakes with my Cricut and added crocheted snowflakes and a snowflake brad for the O. The photos are of Mollie, Megan and Mackenzie on Christmas Eve 2006. We were sledding on the golf course that day.

I am changing up my blog and will now document my daily life in addition to my scrapbook pages. Several years ago, I began inviting girls over to decorate sugar cookies. This started with the Kennedy first and then Hannah. Last year, Hannah wanted to include her best friend Delaney and the invitation then was offered to her sisters, Carli, Jaycie, and Shanlie. Hannah has now moved away but I love these girls and wanted the tradition to continue. Last night Jaycie, Shanli, and Delaney were helped by McKenna.
I provided pumpkin shaped sugar cookies, orange frosting and the sprinkles. They decorated to their little hearts content and I enjoyed their lively conversations.
By the end of the evening, they each had decorated cookies, themselves, and the sprinkles were all over the dining room. The girls then moved on to dressing up in Mollie's high heel shoes. I loved every minute of last night!!!

I created this layout for a ScrapWhispers challenge lift. The photos of are Mollie & Mackenzie boogie boarding in Kauai. The papers are all from Close to My Heart. I created the title, waves and starfish from the Cricut cartridge At the Beach. Not one of my favorites but I love the colors.

The first photo was taken Mollie's first year of organized softball and the second was taken this year, her senior year of high school softball. The girls have played together since they were 8 years old. The papers are MME. I stitched flourishes and added a ribbon. The title is from old Thickers that I colored black. The layout was based on a sketch by Jana Eubanks.

Another layout inspired by a sketch by the talented Liz Qualman. This is of all three kids at the Twin Falls County Fair in 1997. They were all dressed in the clothes they wore to show sheep. I made the flowers by cutting circles and spraying them with water. Then crumpling them into little balls. I then dried them with my heat embosser. I cut the letters out of chipboard and painted them white and then with red polka dots!

This layout is based on a sketch by Liz Qualman. It is my daughter @ age 4 on a local ski hill. I used Bo Bunny Serenade papers, stitched the circle, used a border punch. I cut the title and snowflakes out with my Cricut and glittered the snowflakes and added pearls. The journaling reads, "Your dad's nickname for you was Bunny. The Title was obvious."

This layout of my daughter and nieces circa 1999. The layout is based on a sketch by the talented Liz Qualmann. I was trying to use up more of my stash. I cut the packages out of a variety of scraps and added ribbons and tags. I cut the title and tags with the Cricut and added Sticles. I tied a bow with satin ribbon and added journaling. At that age, the girls were impatient to open their gifts so we diverted their attention by playing Scrabble. My mother-in-law made the matching dresses.

My daughter & nieces on Christmas Eve. I was using up some of my stash. I cut the letters and words with my Cricut. I Stickled the word joy gold. I used a poinsettia embellishment and tied a bow with sheer ribbon. This layout was inspired from a Liz Qualmann sketch. These girls have grown into such lovely young women.
