December 30 2012

So I'm sitting here with Gabby who has a bit of a cold, we are watching The Twilight Zone, the episode where an older guy living in a boarding home hates t.v. so much he goes and digs up an old radio that only plays old shows and games from 12 or so years ago that have long since ended. He keeps living in the past and longed for those early days,  I love this old show!

Well I have been slacking so I have been power scrapping over the last 2 nights, since Christmas was last week and we spent time with 2 families I was not able to get much done but glad I was on vacation. I go back to work on Wednesday. Yes December 31st and January 1st are federal holidays so this year we get both days off and boy didn't I need this time off.

So without further delay I present to you a few layouts, enjoy!


Farrah was super excited to get these gifts, priceless is the look on her face. She got a mp3 player and a fashion design booklet. She loves to draw and listen to music.
The base ppr is Coordinations Aegeon Circle. used scraps of MME Bluebell, Echo Park Happy Days and Amy Tan Sketchbook. The hearts were made from Martha Stewart Heart Confetti punch. The Joy stamp is Autumn Leaves Everyday Sentiments. The letter stickers are Dear Lizzy and the circle was handcut. I sprayed with Heidi Swapp Color Shine.



I lifted from Sunday Sketch a few weeks ago. Gabby loves Dora and was surprised when she received this doll from a church that partners each year with her daycare.
The base ppr is Cosmo Cricket Upcycle called Reverse. I matted the photo with Authentique Free Bird and used scraps out of various papers.


I lifted this from the Studio Calico blog sketch a few weeks ago. The plum paper is DCWV Summer Stack. The blue paper is American Craft's Love Notes. The pink chevron paper is Crate Paper Lil Bo Peep. The stickers are Basic Grey Mini Mono. I made the star from Recollections and Basic Grey Sweet Threads.
2 weeks ago we had our first snow storm (it hadn't snowed since March this year), the kids loved playing, running and throwing snowballs @ each other  The snow kept falling on my lens but I used the pictures anyway. I used the "cross process" feature in Picasa. I think that's my favorite filter. Thanks for looking. 

Bonus pictures:

I took this today, she looked cute in her new coat (but I wouldn't have gotten it so big) and her pink boots. Yes I waited until the last minute to buy winter boots as we have had no snow until about 2 weeks ago. I used Picasa to add the "cross process" filter and overlayed it with "cinemascope" filter. Loved it. Filters are so cool...

I took this yesterday 

They loved kicking the snow
