when all through the house, not creature was stirring, not even a mouse! I want to thank everyone who purchased this precious little layout kit. It was a last minute idea, and I am so excited that Create 365 has asked me to make kits for her store. This Christmas layout kit is pretty much sold out, I will be putting them together soon and if I am able to make extras I will let you all know. She has also offered me to teach classes there if I wish. Maybe one day I will. I have been so busy lately. I thought things would settle down when I stopped teaching monthly classes, but quite the opposite. The job for my parents has been awesome. Such a delite to spend some much needed time with my parents and learn all about their business. I have continued scrapping for my clients as well as taking on a few new clients. I have been asked by several people to come to their homes and help them scrap and use up materials that they have purchased. This is awesome, I have enjoyed every minute of it. I also have a camp coming up. Almost finished with the project, just needing to add a few little touches before I send it out to the school for sign ups. I am so blessed that so many opportunities have come about.

We were at it again! I just love these pictures! What a beautiful littel girl she is and so sweet too. She was feeling a little under the weather and she was so worried about me coming to her house and
getting me sick- sha' little girl!
I have always had a fascination with Hello Kitty! I was too old to really buy the stuff when it came out, well I was too cool in my mind. I must have been about 14 or so. But I always secretly liked the stuff! So when she handed me the packet of Hello Kitty my eyes lit up! I even hand cut the big Hello Kitty out of some sort of place matte, and more flowers from the $1 bin at Michaels!

I headed back over to my friends house after work for some fun times in her scraproom. She has hired me to help her use some of the many scrapbook items she has and to get some of her much needed layouts complete! *Please feel free to ask me about this service!
I couldn't wait to get my hands on this layout, she special ordered some of the Brave paper and die cut title for this (www.scrapyourtrip.com). I know I know...everyone will want to know where she got the Merida girl and the triplets....She found them online and printed them onto sticker sheets. We worked on handcutting them out and while I designed and put the layout together she was busy helping me cut circles for the target...and check out that handmade bow and arrow- her hubby made it the night before I came so that we'd have it to use on the layout! So cool!I hand-tore the brick wall paper and handcut some of the hair paper to peek out from behind the brickwall. I have to say this is one of my favorite layouts that I've made in awhile.
Yes this Brave title was also printed onto the sticker paper but it was on stark white background so I used several inkpads to tone the color down and make it look antique and worn looking.
Close-up of the banner and bow and arrow.
The next layout was made with paper also from www.scrapyourtrip.com. I started by just layering the papers, then knew I had to make a red light, from there I could see the banners and circles being brought to the other side of the layout. When you don't have alot of embellishements for a layout then you make due with buttons, bling, ribbon, twine etc...We are going to add a checkered flag aboe the "Speedway" sign when she finds one.
Check out that cool swirled twine! I've been using twine for along time and with a little bit of scrappy glue you can make it do just about whatever you want!
Hope you enjoy our layouts that we created today!

I always love decorating my house for the seasons. I guess its just something I got from my mother and grandmother. They always loved decorating as well. I have inherited some of my grandmothers decorations and I just enjoy seeing them each season. It bring back wonderful memories of our time together. Below you will find some of the things that I have pulled together to make a simple centerpiece for my dining table. I switched out my halloween stuff and added the turkey and the fall china set. The China set was my paternal grandmother's, the set is called Shefield Bouquet. It has all the colors of fall with a silver trim.
Another garland that I worked into my photos, lamp and candles. I'm just noticing the towels in the backgroup, glad they are atleast nice and folded! LOL I hope you enjoy seeing all of my arrangements for the fall. I really don't want to think about Christmas just yet, even though the stores are getting all ready!
