Le Jardin

I did this layout a few weeks ago using my Le Jardin paper pack that I love so much. My cousin Lulu came to visit me in March 2006 and I was so happy to share some of my world with her. I truly wish we had spent more time together over the years.

All I can say is that it's been busy around here (but that is nothing new here)...painting the walls, unpacking more boxes, getting ready for Thanksgiving (will have a lot of family over this year) and Christmas and my hubby's Birthday...not to mention my son's Birthday is Jan. 10th and will need to quickly start getting ready for that too.

I am still following my agenda on getting organized and fortifying my friendships and family relationships. It's a pretty good feeling...and it's keeping me from spending a lot of moolah on some amazing scrapbooking/stamping products out there.

Stampin'Up is having an amazing promotion this month with the paper packs (but 3 and get the 4th one FREE)...been making some home-made goodies for XMas's one of them for my's that cool three clip clipboard...I made into a practical board with a grocery list and weekly menu list. Love that Cherize paper..and so must a lot of people because it had been on backorder until today.

Here's wishing you all lots of good wishes towards your holiday planning!!!

Another Mini Album

I have been wanting to play with those very playful papers from the "Darling Doodles" designer series papers. I had the best opportunity to do this mini album dedicated to this past month. Even though it was still a busy month, we got to go on short family outings and I wanted to capture them in a neat little book. This albums is made from a manilla folder...I see a class coming on for this ....maybe in January 2008?

Oh by the way, Stampin'Up is having an amazing special this month on all of their beautiful designer series paper packs this three packs and get the 4th one FREE...check out the promotion HERE.

I can hook you up with these beautiful papers...just shoot me an e-mail ok?

Goodbye Halloween 2007

I was inspired by the talented Kelli Crowe when she showed how to make these amazingly cute pop-up cards on ScrapInStyleTV.

I decided to surprise the grandparents with these cards...the little house opens up revealing a mini album with the kids in their halloween costume.
