It is Beginning to Look Alot Like Christmas (LOADS 33 - 35)

I know, I know, it is early for Christmas. However, in years past by the time I get the Christmas photos ready to scrap the last thing I want to do is look at more Christmas stuff. So, this year I am gonna do last years Christmas stuff done before to get me in the mood. I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas!

This first one is not my favorite. I wanted to get the tickets from the Polar Express on the page.

This is a picture of Santa giving Annie a bell. It was sooooo sweet!

My very favorite LO I did. Do you know how there are those moments in life that will forever be a picture in your head? I was fortunate enough to capture that with this one! I have never seen a LO done on when a child stops believing in Santa, but this is one! My Logan was looking out the train window discussing with my Santa and this is the moment -- this very moment -- that he stoped beleiving. Isn't it bitter sweet? He really truly did want to believe, but logically he just could not. It was like he had to mourn the loss of his belief. This LO captures all the emotion and memory of that moment. I am so happy I got an authentic record of that moment!

My Scrappy Space

I have recently cleaned and reorganized my scrap room. I really like it now. I tried to keep in mind how I scrapbook and what I use most of and PRIMAS are not on the top of my list, but buttons are!

This is the ink orgainzer from CTMH and it only holds their ink pads. The top is suppose to be for re-inkers, but I use it for Stickles.

Here are my CTMH stamps. each box holds roughly 18 stamp sets -- yes I have a lot.

My buttons! I love buttons and usually use them on every LO that comes across my desk. I am a visual person and need to see my stash, therefore these are on the peg board.

My latest find at the hardware store. I don't understand why people spend so much on stuff created to hold scrapbooking materials. Seriously, your local hardware store has way cooler, more practical, and cheaper things. Take this storage unit I am using for my alphas and such!

Most of my space. Everything (with the exception of the clip it up -- Thank you Marlene! I love it and it is well used and the ink pad sorter) are from the hardware store. If you just have a peg board and a few hooks you will be amazed at how much you will get out of your stash because you can see it!

C2P Nov LO (and LOADS 26 - 32)

You have to get this kit! It was so versatile! I was also able to use up things from my stash. It contains Bo Bunny PP, CS, white thickers, green tolling, and small orange prima flowers. Enjoy!


Here is my Load for 25. This was such a challenging LO to complete, but I did it all with my stash.

LOADS 10 - 23!

Are you ready? I have a lot for you to look at! I have been trying to get 2009 all caught up and not carry over to next year, so even though I have not been posting I have been scrapping. Not all of these I love, but they are done. All of it is from my stash. I did not go out and buy anything. One of my goals is to burn through some of this stash because it is overwhelming.

CTMH Twitterpated line is what I used for this LO.

The next few LOs are done with CTMH Comfort of Home line. I actually almost did not get this paper back when it was first released. I like it now that I have used it -- more so than Twitterpated and TP was what I thought I would love!

CTMH Twitterpated line. Once again, I don't love it, but it is done. I am just not loving this line like I thought it would. I also suck with stickers and I got the coordinating stickers and used them.

Older CTMH line from the summer. Happy to say that I used up all of the PP! Yay!

This one is awfully cute! I used CTMH PP from this summer -- the name is escaping me at the moment. I love the look on Parker's face the most. I took a piece of sandpaper tp the CS first and then went from there.

SO, this is my very favorite one I have done! I was able to use up three leftover packages of thickers on it, CTMH pearl paint with reinker, a TON of Glimmer mist, two transparencies, three maya road tags, the last of the prima crystal swirls, and the pocket is actually cut off of the back of my son's torn up jeans that I was gonna throw away. I was able to cut off both of his pockets and the denim legs for future use. I never thought to use old jeans like this, but I love love love the denim. I am so thankful I was able to use up some of my stash and I LOVE the outcome of it!The pictures are tiny because they were taken in secret so the kids would not see that they were being followed to school!

CTMH Twitterpatted line. What can I say? It is done. Not loving it, but it is done.

The Following two are the last two LOs I needed to finish up the Las Vegas album! I am not loving the Las Vegas one, but the M&M one is kind of cute. I like it much better in real life! :-)

Aleta posted an ad challenge at OSU and this is what I did with it!

This is the one I came up with for the Sketch challenge Jen B posted at OSU!

Whew! So you made it through all of the posts huh? Thanks so much for stopping by and looking! :-)

Oct LOAD 6 - 9

I am killing two birds with one stone on these LOADS. I put a challenge up on OSU to use a die cut machine and a certain other things. My Cricut just sits and I never use it. Well, this was a process to say the least, but I am happy with the fourth LO I did. I think I need to practice more with the Cricut and understand that it takes some time to do a LO with the Cricut.

This is the first LO I did. I really don't like it. I feel like it looks like something I would have done in the beginning of my scrapping life.

This is a little better. I had these pictures for months not knowing how to scrap them and this is what I came up with. I think it is simple (not me), but acceptable.

This does not qualify for the challenge because I used PP and glitter (yes I glittered that big crown) and primas. This LO took me ALL Sat and I am not that pleased with it. However my DD loves it. Good thing because it is for her book!

Finally! I hit my mark! I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this turned out and I hit the challenge.

Tattered Angels Kit

As some of you know I embarked on a new journey in my life. A journey to health. To read more about this please visit my blog profile and click on Journey to 35. In honor of that, I created this adorable mini album from Tattered Angels. This was by far the most amazing beautiful mini album kit I have ever made. I want to go buy all the rest of the kits there! I think Tattered Angels is my new favorite product line. They have come along way. I have been following them ever since they were a baby company. Enjoy! Leave me some love

If you have fall photos and like circles and arrows you must must must get the Commit 2 Paper for Oct! Thanks to Amy and her great pick of product for the month, I was finally able to finish my trip to WA I took last Oct. to WA! I used GM on some of the chipboard pieces that were already in the kit. FYI these chipboard pieces she included are FAB! They are self adhesive and absorb GM like a dream! Enjoy! TFL!
