ooh... I almost forgot these...

or I guess you could say I did forget these! heehee I had this post saved but not published. This was the Limited Edition kit for My Creative Scrapbook (January). I hope you enjoy ... and it won't be too much longer before the February kits are revealed. I've been really busy lately so not too much to post here but come next week I'll have lots of new layouts to share.

I just love this photo of DH and Larissa. I called it butterfly kisses and then realized afterwards that she was actually giving him an eskimo kiss...oh well LOL.

Fly: I just love this photo of Larissa swinging at the park last spring. To get this shot I crouched on the group and aiming my camera up. I had to be really careful not to get kicked though!

Enjoy Every Second: I LOVE this photo. Larissa is running through the fields with her little friends after a church potluck. I especially love that one of the little boys has his arms stretched out wide. There is nothing cuter than children running like that.

And lastly, a little wall hanging that has made it's home in my kitchen. "The little things are usually the best things" How true.

Have a great day everyone... I promise to be back soon.

My Creative Scrapbook - January Creative Kit

I have another kit to show off!! This is My Creative Scrapbook's January Creative Kit. A beautiful bright mix with tons of embellishments (as always!). Due to some odd postal circumstances (grrrr...Canada Post) I got my kit at odd timing so I didn't have the ribbons/trims, lace cardstock, chipboard or bling but I was determined to make it work anyways! These kits are so jam packed that I hardly noticed and still had lots of leftovers after 3 layouts and an altered item.

Snow Happy: this is a photo from our first snowfall this year (well technically last year now '09) which was way late! Usually this photo would be taken in early November but it was mid December before we got a decent blanket of white stuff.

Snow girl: In most winter shots Larissa has her tongue hanging out...trying to catch some snow flakes :)

Larissa and her cousin Keaton were having so much fun sliding on a non-existent hill in our backyard last winter...even funnier, they both thought they should share one tiny saucer sled.

Yes, I'm tickled PINK!

This week has been a happy scrappy week for me! I was so excited to finally get my chane to guest design for Pink Pasilee. You can check out my guest design work here on the Pink Paislee blog. And then, EVEN BETTER, I got to see my name here. Oh someone pinch me please!! Thank you to my friends for all your congratulations and well wishes...I'm grinning like the Cheshire cat :)

Notes of Love: I dug into my stash and let Larissa and her little cousin Jaedyn make some Valentines for their little friends. (2009)

This Kiss: I was trying to get some cute Valentines photos of Larissa (2009) when she reached down and kissed her little heart necklace. I told her 'no honey, don't do for Mama'. Well, when I got the photos uploaded, this was my all time favourite of the bunch. I love it when that happens.

Sweet Eats: Nothing is better than eating the treat you just baked and decorated. This was Larissa & Jaedyn's first cupcake decorating was a yummy one.

Take out box with Pink Pasilee candies...yes, there are real candies in these Pink Paislee wrappers but you wouldn't want to nibble on them since they are covered in hot glue :)

Here are a few good ole fashioned Valentines cards in a cello bag with a topper.


My Creative Scrapbook - January Main Kit

Oh la la!! It's that time again. My Creative Scrapbook has unveiled it's January Kits. Here is the Main January kit featuring the rich tones of Lilybee (my altered jar and some layouts from my fellow DT members are featured on the Lilybee blog). Have a peek at what my fellow DT members have done with this kit as well.

Beautiful Bride: This is my beautiful new sister-in-law. I am making a wedding album for her and my brother as a wedding gift. I hope to wrap that project up shortly (almost done!) So, if you are Jennette & Daniel - STOP PEEKING! lol As for the rest of you - peek away :) The photo here was an artistic shot from their awesome photographer Scott Frank who so kindly let me use some of his photos for this project.

Family Memories: These photos are from our first family fishing trip last Labour Day. I was the hero of the day when I caught a 4lb rainbow trout. I thought little Larissa would be a little freaked out by the trashing fish but she was delighted and couldn't wait to get it home and eat it! I still have to add the journaling on the Tattered Angels looks a little naked without any writing there.

Love: This is another one for the wedding gift. I am keeping the titles pretty plain on these since it's not for me. This is another photo by Mr. Frank :)

Here is a little jar that I made for my altered project. It was formerly a bottle of green ice tea :) I love to recycle glass items and give them a new home. The tiny little tattered angels bingo cards were cut from the packaging of the actual bingo cards. A very green project indeed :)
