Today's Scrapbook Pages....

So I got a chance to head up to the scrapbook room today. My challenge was to use the Basic Grey Phoebe line (that's the patterned paper for you non-scrap lingo people), my Graphically speaking Cricut cartridge and my Paisley Cuttlebug embossing folder (it's on the photo corner in the bottom picture.) I LOVE the journaling on page 2! HA!

Sleepy Alligator!

Noah spent the evening playing at Isaac's with several school friends. When I picked him up, Alex said Chloe could borrow his costume. (Alex LOVES dressing in Halloween costumes...)When we got home, Noah put it on and ran around the house "biting" things with the gator head. Then we sat down to play some Dr. Mario on the old Nintendo. Chloe and I were playing and Noah fell asleep next to me! Of course, I had to take pictures!!

Girly Girl (not!)

I created a list of challenges for myself so I would stop using the same supplies and use some things that I haven't used or have never used. This is the 2nd one...the challenge was to use a metal rim with a flower in the center, eyelets and ribbon, and stamp swirls on the letters of the title (hard to see in the photo) here it is:

Setting up Camp

Ok, I had to create a quick scrapbook page. Here are pics from when Jan and her kids went camping with us and Noah's teacher this year. Sorry about the camera shadow in the pictures...oops!! Hey Jan, see the new stamp from Fresh Mod. :)


Ok, here's another one I finished a few ago...journaling says, "My goofy boy! There's never a dull moment with this one! Here we are at a party for Morgan's 1st birthday."

Helpin' Out

Here is a page I created a few weekends ago at our school crop fundraiser. Journaling says, "My motto is 'I'm raising adults,' so I try my best to teach them skills to help them be successful adults. On Saturday mornings, they bring their laundry baskets in the hall, dump them out, check pockets, and throw them in the washer. I have just recently made them help fold their clothes. After the clothes are folded, then they put them away. I hope this helps them to be responsible adults and in the meantime, we enjoy each other."

Finished Snow Page 2

Here is the 2nd page of the Snow page I started. It's pretty simple but goes well with the other one.

Birthday Boy

Noah had his actual birthday yesterday. Here he is being silly and "riding" Eeyore. Today he had a birthday party at the house. There were 10 kids here! We all had fun but boy am I exhausted! I'd show more pictures but I'm going to bed....Yes, at 8:30!!!

Scrap Pages From Saturday

So I went to a friend's house on Saturday to scrapbook. There were 8 of us scrapping, chatting and having a good ol' time. I only finished 5 pages (the 6th one needs some finishing touches) but I had fun anyway.
You might recognize these pictures from earlier in my blog :) I finally got them developed and scrapped them! The flowers and stem are covered in glitter. This goes next to the page above. I didn't have another chipboard "l" so I cut one out on the matches the "love" at the bottom of the page. I learned something on this page....In between the pictures you might notice a white flourish...well...I stamped that on a clear acrylic heart and stamped it and dumped embossing powder on it. Then I proceeded to heat it with the embossing gun....welll....plastic melts! Duh! So it kind of crinkled. OH, well, just adds a little dimension! HA!This page was number five so the page next to it isn't finished yet :) The 3 snowflakes are covered in glitter! (Love that spite of the mess!) These pictures were taken on November 30. The kids got up Sunday morn and realized it snowed. So they put on their snow clothes and we played in the snow before going to church. I had on my pjs and Ed's waders and my coat! Bet I looked hysterical....and pics of that!
Here are the kids playing Guitar Hero on October 27. Too funny!

Big Girl!

Well, look what Ed brought in! LOL! He went to church tonight and got a daybed from the preacher's wife. Ed set it up in Chloe's room. Now she's a big girl! No more toddler bed....
