Christmas isn't Just Red and Greem

Christmas colors for the last two years have been really colorful. For my boys, I normally stay with the red and greens. But this year, I am making a gift for one of my cousins. She has a little girl that will look great on these pages. I had a Maya Road chipboard pages left over. I used them as the covers for this little book.

I really didn't have primo lighting...but I hope you can see the cuttlebug embossing and the tons of inking. It was fun to make something out of the ordinary for me. Thanks for looking.

On Dasher!

I just can't get enough of this Maya Road petal book. I also adore this Cosmo Cricket paper. It is so yummy.
I spent a weekend at The Stolen Moments Inn. I love it there. The weekend was filled with some family drama....but I was there long enough to work on some Christmas presents. I don't know if anyone in my family will really like getting the mini books that I made....but....I make them anyway.
Thanks for looking.

On Dasher, On Dancer...

OK....have I said that I love Maya Road products before? LOL. Well I have to say that my most favorite bit of chipboard, has to be their flower petal album. I have used this book for everything but a flower! It makes awesome ladybugs, it makes perfect sense to me that it would make a great reindeer. What do you think?

The Crafty Scrapper, has gotten in so many great Christmas lines. I tried to use bits and pieces of several of them in my little book. When I saw this paper with musical notes, I knew it had to be mine. Christmas is all about the music for me! The title of the book is "Christmas Together"

Here I was enjoying using some techniques I learned at my Wendy Venchi class last month. I am so digging the cuttlebug and inking everything in sight!

The two little reindeers kind of remind me of my dear hubby and myself! Well... the plan is to fill this with pictures of us through the years on Christmas. I can't wait until it is all filled and I can share it with him! Thanks for lookin'!

Boo To You!

Well yet another Halloween is over. I have to say that this was the worst Halloween for Costumes. You can see Luke above as Charlie Brown. He wore this for the Band Scare. But....he lost it and couldn't wear it to trick or treat. He put on his grandpa's hat and called himself Hunter S. Thompson so he could go out to get candy.
Sam was another story. I wrapped him up beautifully as you can see above and I took some pictures of him. I felt that his legs were a little saggy, so his dad said that he would rewrap him and make it work. Well...his legs didn't even make it to the first house. By the time he got to the end of the street...he was practically naked. So after one street..we had all had it and went to eat at our favorite neighborhood joint for a bite to eat.
Cody tells me that he went to a party at school. He said he would get me some pictures, but I'm not holding my breath. I hope everyone had a happy Halloween.
