Christmas presents . . .

So I have been busily making Christmas presents this weekend!! I made 11 of the boxes this weekend. I have to decorate 10 of them still, but it's soo much fun!! The bottom pics are of a project that I'm making for my mom and my mother-in-law! I was totally inspired by the awesome scrapper, Danielle Flanders. She created a similar project and you can see it here:
She makes awesome things and for some reason this project of her's just cried to be lifted in my world! I have one done and I need to finish the other one. I hope that they like them!!

Other than the above, I got my haircut and colored . . . dark!! I love going to the salon! It's always so fun!! Emma is recovered, finally, from the 36 hour flu!! Argh. I hate it when the kiddos are sick!! Hopefully no one else will get sick now! Happy Sunday, Everyone!!

Was challenged to use a quote in a layout.

November Sneak Peeks . . .

So the cold has made it's way into my brain!!

I totally took my sneak peek pics and then forgot to put them in my blog!!

So without further ado . . . here they are:

I just fell in love with this kit .. . I'll admit . . . I was a little sketchy at first and I was so nervous because the colors are so opposite of what I'm used to working with. In the end . . . I feel like I might just have to order another set of the papers to keep me going!! I loved them so much!!

I so can't wait for the full reveal of the next peek . . . it's one of my most favorite layouts!!

Thanks for looking .. . remember kits go on sale at 4 Scrappy Sisters on Oct. 25th . . .pick yourself up a "delicious" fat-free, sugar-free treat!!

Happy World Card Making Day . . .

In honor of World Card Making Day, (yes, Mary . . . you are going to think I'm a geek!!) I made these cards yesterday . . . I just used scraps and some challenge ideas! It was pretty fun! I think my favorite is the one directly below with the butterfly!

This morning:
Sophia trying to get warm by cuddling up with Mickey . . .

and Emma reading . . . she's always reading things now . . .

Hope you have a great day!
I've got a lot of exciting things planned like laundry, grocery shopping, & cleaning!! I know, I know .. . you're all jealous and wish you could be me!! I'm actually going to try and take it easy and drink lots of water and Zicam to try and avoid getting a cold!!

ATC's & a layout

Here are a few projects that I've been working on:

The first 6 are actually ATC cards. They are about 2 x 3" . . . not very big, but neat! I'm participating in 52 weeks of fun hosted by the ever-amazing Jules at 4 Scrappy Sisters. I was 3 weeks behind, but I was able to catch up in one day!! Yeah!!

And this one is just a layout that I did using a Becky Fleck PageMap sketch!
