still a bit of winter left....

I created these wintery layouts in January using Let's Capture Our Memories January Kit. If you are looking for an active and wonderful online scrapbooking community, this is the place to go.... lots of challenges, gabbing, games and great scrappers!!

We had such a wonderful and mild winter that we were able to get out on the enjoy the snow on most weekends.

Cold Noses, Warm Hearts: I snapped this photo of Larissa & Keaton after a morning full of downhill sledding. The chipboard snowflake is covered in pink mica flakes. Now I thought glitter was messy but it has nothing on mica flakes!! I think the result was worth the mess though :)

Winter Pals: Larissa with our 13 year old yellow lab mix named Min. I have a hard time getting any photos of Larissa without Min trying to sneak in close to Larissa so she can get patted.

2 in a tube: This photo just makes me laugh. I can just hear these two giggling away as they went down the hill in this tube together. This layout was really fun to make... all the snowflakes are cut from pattern paper.

Pink Paislee Projects

I am so thrilled to be a part of the Pink Paislee team. I am just in heaven working with their products. Here are a couple of layouts that I did for the Pink Paislee blog lately. Their pleated ribbon is my favourite new item from CHA this year. YES, the ribbon really comes this way!! I have had so many inquires about this. It's a brilliant idea especially for those of us who are inept at sewing.

This layout was done using the 365 degrees collection.

Queen Bee line

Here is another project that I made for the Pink Paislee blog. At Pink Paislee, Mondays are monochromatic ..which I admit, scared me a little bit. But it was quite easy to create a monochromatic layout using the new Queen Bee line. This is Larissa last summer at my brother's wedding. She insisted that she sign the guest register all by herself.

I want to take a moment to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day! Here on PEI, there seems to be a bit of Irish in everyone, our family included. The height of our St. Patty's Day was a trip to Walmart to buy Larissa some garishly green pants and matching shirt for her to wear to daycare today...as well as shamrock clip-on ear rings with a matching necklace and bracelet ;)

pssst.... check out Pink Paislee's new mid-season release called Starlight which is due to ship on my birthday!

March Limited Edition Kit - My Creative Scrapbook

I am so excited to show off the March Limited Edition kit for My Creative Scrapbook...another kit loaded with fabulous Prima goodies! Here's what have created with this kit so far but I have more work to come...there is just so much in this kit that I feel like I'm just getting started.

A dress that twirls: Last summer, Larissa discovered that when she spun around in certain dresses they would twirl... WOW. She wanted to wear a twirly dress everyday and every where she went she would twirl, twirl, twirl. We was going to an evening event and she was doing her usually twirling on the way when I noticed the sun beams catching in her hair so I was really pleased to have my camera in my purse.

Meeting baby Anna: Larissa is just thrilled with her beautiful new cousin, Anna. Ever since Anna's arrival, Larissa is very curious about babies. She's even been putting little diapers on her doll that she re-named Anna. Right now baby Anna is very sick in the hospital with RSV :( so we are all praying for her swift recovery.

March Main Kit - My Creative Scrapbook

I am so happy! I have my blog all fixed now.....not that it was ever really broken but I thought it was. JJ pointed out to me that I had my editing mode on html instead of compose so that is why everything I tried to edit looked like gibberish to my untrained eye. Now that things are figured out, I can show you the rest of the work I did with the March main kit. I am in love with this kit and plan on making even more with it in the coming week or so.

Girls of summer: I am IN LOVE with this piece of turquoise polka dot paper. This is Larissa and her little cousin last summer :)

Fast Friends: I just love watching Larissa make friends at the beach. Within minutes of meeting this little girl, off they went hand in hand looking for sea shells.

Stay tuned for more projects with this kit!

My Creative Scrapbook - Main Kit

Well, there is something wrong with my blog this week. I'm not going to let it stop me from posting but my posting will be a little bit different. I have to post each layout in it's own post because when I'm adding them to my blog all I can see is long codes and no photos...sure makes it difficult in the editing area!

I'm anxious to show off My Creative Scrapbook's March kits. This layout was done using the March Main kit which is soooo loaded with Prima!!! Check out what my fellow DT members did with the kits this month.

I called this layout Special Bond because Larissa and her sweet aunt live very far away from each...opposite sides of this big country. Even though they only see each about 10 days every summer, Larissa just hangs on her every word and spends every moment she can squeeze in. There was lots of cut out work on this one... it took a couple of hours for the fussy cutting so I watched a movie while I worked :)
