Reindeer Games

Alton hates having his diaper changed. We made the mistake of trying to change him next to his brand new fire truck on Christmas... you can see how successful we were.

I used the Ziggle Designs kit Reindeer Games for this kit.

Happiness is Revised

This was the original page:

I did not have time during the original speed scrap to do an extraction. I had some time yesterday, so I did. I really like the way it came out.

The picture I used has a great sense of motion I think. He is running on the bridge and I think this shows his movement more.

You should check out the Gingerscraps forum. There are weekly and monthly challenges as well as speed scraps throughout the week. Click the Gingerscraps blinkie on my sidebar to get to the blog.

I used the TwoBoyz kit, Backyard Boy for this one. :)

Download link expired

A freebie for you! I adored this page and I thought you might like it too, so I have a Quick Page for you. :) Click on the preview above to download. ETA: I have made a second quick page for this kit. See it here.

The pictures on my version of the page were from our official Engagement photo shoot. I have always loved these pictures, so I am so happy that I finally have an excuse to scrap them.

Please leave a comment on either here or 4Shared if you download. I would also love to see what you do with my quick page, so if you download it and use it (or any of of my other QPs), please leave a comment directing me to your blog so I can leave you some love. :)

Don't forget you can download this whole kit from the Stolen Moments Designs blog.

Speed Scrap @ Gingerscraps last night

I did my first speed scrap last night. I was supposed to be making dinner, so Shhh! Don't tell my husband. It was a lot of fun and I got this great page out of it.

Trimming the Tree

Alton "helped" us trim the tree last weekend. He had so much fun hindering Daddy's progress to light the tree. :)

I used the Pixie Keepsakes kit, Christmas Tan for this layout. It is a collaboration with Ellie Lash and it is available on sale this weekend at the Gingerscraps store.

I re-did this page because the lights jsuit weren't glowing enough! Did you know that you can adjust the outer glow to be bigger? I didn't know that until I fiddled with it last week.

Painter's Quilt

I absolutely LOVE this kit. The colors are awesome. Here is my layout:

You can get his kit from the Stolen Moments Designs blog now. This is going to be a very versatile kit. Amber is really great about giving you a ton of color options for the elements, so there are a lot to choose from.
I might make some frames for a freebie later. Please let me know what you think!

Disneyland a la Retro Fall

Another trip to Disneyland means another page....

I used the Pixie Keepsakes kit, Retro Fall for this layout. It is currently 30% off for the weekend, so grab it while you can.

Should I make a Quick Page? Let me know!

Busy Busy

I have been a scrapping machine. This is today's page:

My little brother Robert is in the Air Force. He is visiting for "Christmas" from Texas with his girlfriend Robin before he is sent on a mission to Venezuela. So we took Alton and my nephew to Disneyland today.

I used the Ellie Lash kit, Merry and Bright for this layout.

Another Twilight blinkie by request

Exciting News!

I am now a Creative Team member for Gingerscraps! I am so excited and absolutely floored that she picked me! This weekend at Gingerscraps we are having a party to celebrate two new designers joining the GingerScraps team. Come check it out!

She is releasing a new kit, Kayla's Quilt.

Here is my layout:

I really love this kit. I have NEVER scrapped any of my engagement pictures, so I am very excited to finally have a chance to do that. This kit has BEAUTIFUL papers and gorgeous elements and two alphas. I LOVE the cabinet handle! Make sure you head on over to the Gingerscraps shop and buy this kit today!

A little update

So I know it has been very boring around here lately. No new posts in a few days.

I have some VERY exciting news, but I can't talk about it yet. I will have a great post tomorrow including a very lovely (I think) Quick Page for you for your patience.

I will have another post on Sunday too. I just can't wait to share.

The LA Zoo

I took Alton to the zoo for first time in September. Here is a page from that day.

I used the Ziggle Designs kit, Gathering Leaves for the paper, leaves, and alpha. The frame around the giraffe is from the Lliella Designs kit, Fall Folly.
My journaling font is Pea Charmaine, and the other text is Pea Sarah Cute.
