Angel Baby

I have been on the hunt for the perfect picture to use with this new line of Prima paper and flowers. I love this pic....I actually peeled it off of a not so great LO I made about 7 years ago of my youngest...LOL. and scanned it so I could turn it B/W. I found the crystal garland on clearance at Michaels (score) I love how it turned out :)


Oh, this was such a fun sketch!! You still have time to play along this week :) Check it out, Liz at The Scrappiest comes up with some great ones! Take a peek at what the other DT members came up with .......so CUTE!!

I put together this 2 page spread based on Sketch 15 from http://52sketches52weeks.ning.com/

This is a layout I made based on sketch 28 from http://pinksketches.typepad.com/....I am so excited, I don't think I have ever been motivated enough to scrap a page on the same day as the event :)

So I realized in my about 9 years of scrapping I have never done a page about anything other than my kids....So I found a great sketch on http://thescrappiest.blogspot.com/ and decided I would do a page to honor my husband for our anniversary. This is what I came up with.

I entered another sketch challenge. This one is for http://52sketches52weeks.ning.com/.


Wow! I have been looking through other peoples blogs (to try and get an idea on what I am doing..lol) and I am so impressed! Specifically the Scrapbook blogs. I am so inspired and motivated. I mean I knew there was a lot of people who love what I love, I just never realized the community. I am so excited! I can't wait to start some of the challenges that have been posted. Creativity Awaits :)

This is my entry for a page contest on PageMaps.com "What is on your mind"...It was so much fun!
Hmm...I have never really "blogged" before, but thought it might be a cool way to keep our friends and family up to date on the events in our life.
