Scraphoria Dec. 07 Kit

A kit so fun it practically scrapped itself (again). Seriously - Tracey knows how to put together some kick-butt kits. Perfectly coordinated and Loaded with goodies!!

Here are my first few projects:

A layout entitled: "So cherished" I love how this turned out. My youngest son (Egan) goofing around with his cousin (Orin) at a family gathering this past summer.

DVD cases (I'm using these as Christmas presents so if you're reading this Mom & Dad (s), you're getting DVDs of our year for Christmas)

A Christmas ornament made out of 3 of the Maya Road chipboard album birds. I couldn't bear to "waste" all these birds on one project :) I love how this turned out. I have a red Kitchen with a taupe wall on one side so this has the perfect home this Christmas season!

A card using another bird. If and when I send this, I'm going to use strip journaling to add the person's name/address across the front. I may have to cover it in packing tape, or a laminating strip to mail it but I think it'll be cute.

Here's a peek at the first page of an acrylic album I'm making based on the song "I believe in Us" by Amy Sky - a challenge on SGK.

Scavenger hunt picture

OK....this may seem like a silly picture but it's for a scavenger hunt so....please bear with me :)

Something cold - freezie
something hot - my coffee (in a travel mug)
something soft - my giraffe (thanks Kat, from
something hard - the key ring on the giraffe
something heavy - the metal can on the top right contains a huge lump of metal filings (purchased at MCC - no reason - just couldn't pass up such a fun thing to own)
something light - the pompoms
something dark - Staz-on ink
something bright - binder rings from Target
something crafty - my wooden block calendar with today's date :)
something tasty - Juicy Fruit Gum
something sweet - KitKat
something cool - my coolest new scrappy thing - rub-on stitching from Daisy D's, in a tape-runner type dispenser! Very cool!

Photo inspiration

This is a photo I took this Spring of my (then Kindergarten-er) son's hand in mine as we drove home from a field trip on the school bus. Over half of the Kindergarten's, used to only 1/2 days at school, fell asleep on the bus on the way home from this full-day trip and I was lucky enough to have a boy who wanted to sleep on my lap. It struck me as I held him sleeping that this would probably be one of the last times this would ever happen. He's getting big; he was on his way to grade 1 - full days of school; outgrowing naps in general. This picture, when I look at it - inspires me to take advantage of every moment I have with him, and with my other kids because they grow up SO fast.

This is an accordian album with chipboard covers that I altered to be a Christmas card holder. We have a new black fridge that we've committed to keeping clutter-free so I need a place to store/display my pictures, without fun-tak-ing them all to the fridge. Thanks for looking!!
