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!

Megan & Mackenzie are State Champs

I spent the weekend watching my nieces win the Idaho 5A State Championship in volleyball. They had an amazing season....undefeated and only losing 1 set the entire season!!!! WOW!

Snow Much Fun

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.

Halloween Cookies

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!!!

Surf's Up

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.
