Hi Everyone
Its sunday and I am soooooo tired. I was able to get some rest this weekend but I'm still tired. This going back to work really gets me at the end of the week.
I'm working on my 2nd set of ATC cards for apieceofcraft.com. This month were working on Halloween. (I will put up a pic of my September ones after todays post) I hope it arrives in time for Marion to mail out.
I haven't been scrapbooking to much lately. I've also noticed that I haven't been taking alot of pictures of my daughter either. :( Not a good thing. Now that I went back to work, its like there's no time. I'll have to tell my husband too, he's home with her. I did develope some pics of her last month for me to scrapbook, but i just haven't sat down to do them. But I will. It'll just hit me one night to do the work.
This Tuesday night I'll be going to a Stampin up Cupcake Class. I'm pretty excited. We're doing different projects and I can't wait to see what Cindy has in store for us.
Well thats it for me. I'm going to finish my ATC cards and maybe hit those scrapbook pages??? Take care.

Layout I made the other night. Here's Felicia's 1st boo-boo. She was so good, she didn't even cry, But she was so darn cute. Just had to scrap it!!!

Finished Clock :) I had fun putting this together. I new a wanted a pic of my baby girl and I HAD to put Owls. So cute. I like the way it turned out.

New clock for my scrapbook room. I plan to add photo's and embelishments . Hope it turns out well. I thought it was the perfect design for my room. Cute idea eh? I'll post a photo once it is done.

Kleenex Box Inspiration

Layout I made inspired from this Kleenex box

Owl pictures for Felicia's future bedroom, made them myself. Cute eh.

I had mentioned that I make fabric covered albums. So I took a photo to show you. This is the fabric I chose for Felicia. I chose the animal theme becasue that is what I had put in her room when we got it "ready for baby". And i couldn't resist, look how cute they are.

The albums I made in the past consisted of a page for all the holiday and special occassions throught out the year. So for my daughters albums I did the same and more. I am in the process of making a 3rd album just to fit all my layouts in. This is a layout I made with her newpaper clipping and her beautiful new born face and her name. Sorry the colour is so light. I also made pages to record all the special moments and milstones for the year.

I "HAD" to scrapbook this picture of my baby girl. Isn't she just so cute without any teeth. Its funny to look back at pictures and see all they didn't have or couldn't do. I plopped her up on pillows and grabbed the camera. At that time it was so easy to take a picture, now that she is ONE, ha...

Every month, for the whole year, I took a picture of my daughter in front of a huge stuffed giraffe we have to see her growth. On this particular day she was smiling away at daddy who just happen to walk in while our little photo shoot.I just had to scrapbook it, she looks so sweet. I used paper to pick up on the red outfit she is wearing and I used the paper glaze to highlight some of the dots on the paper.The letters are felt stickers.

In this layout, I just experimented with my coloured paper. Nothing special I did here. I loved her feet and had to scrapbook it :) Oh wait I did use a few rubons from stampin up and I put paper glaze on the words to make them a little glossy.

This layout was inspired by Marion from A piece of craft .com. She does amazing work and I had to try this layout. I didn't have some of the things she had so I inprovised. I tried to use the colours from the photo.This pic was taken on my daughter 1st birthday, mommy holding back the tears as everyone sang.

I used this pattern paper for inspiration here. I used the qiuckutz to cut my spiral and glued several layers together to gift it a 3D effect and I also embossed the xoxo chipboards in white. Daddy and Felicia on Canada Day.

Yay!!! I finally did it. This is one of my fav. layouts of my baby girl. I love the black & white photo and the punch of pink from the flower.

This was Felicia's 1st Canada Day, I just had to scrapbook it. I also recently purchased "The Squeeze" hand tool and used it for my layout.

I placed a red bow on her sunhat for the day and later used it for my layout. Our Walmart recently received new Kodak picture kiosks and I love that I can make my photo's so tiny.You can fit so much more on a 81/2 x 11 layout.

I love how the colour of the phot turned out in this picture, I had bought this paper a while ago and was finally able to use it. I think the two work well together.

Card I made for my mom with my new Cuttlebug that she bought for me for my bday (Dad too). Love it!!!

Another card using the cuttlebug!
