Corn Maze

We went to a local corn maze and had an absolute ball.  The boys ran around trying to find our way out.  It was lots of fun.  I used My Minds Eye patterned paper.  A EK Success border punch.  I also used the Thanksgiving cartridge for the corn.

Sweet Boy

Another picture of my son.  He is the most adorable!  I know everyone thinks that their child is the most adorable but when you know that they are, uh!  Amazing.  He is in every way sweet.  Do you ever have the feeling when you look at your childs face, that you can literally feel the love overflow from your pores? 

The only element that I can remember from this layout is the bird.  He was made from the Hannah Montana cartridge.

Tinker Time

One of my husbands favorite hobbies is to restore vehicles.  I was quite surprised when this truck showed up in my driveway.  This is how the truck looked when it arrived.  He is currently working on getting it in running condition.  I'm sure that I will do another layout and post on when it is done.

Here is a two page layout that I did of our family searching for the perfect Christmas tree.  I used nestabilities for my journaling spots.  I also used Fiskars Threading Water border punch.  I forgot which cartridge I used for the font.  Sorry.  Maybe Lyrical letters?

This is one of my favorite layouts these days.  I personally like blue.  So, anytime that I can use it, I do and love it.  Love how all the colors soothe my eye.

Pure Joy

Oh the look on my son's face!  Pure joy.  He is playing and shares an award winning smile.  This smile melts me everytime.  The side journaling is from a Crafter's Workshop template.  The substitle spot is punched from a EK Success punch.  The frame around the photo is cut from decorative scissors.

This layout was done of my husband and his brother.  They share a laugh at our Thanksgiving gathering.  I used a stamp set from Image Tree Ek Success for the brothers detail.  I also used punches from Fiskars and Ek Success.  The font is Don Juan.

This layout looks pretty simple but it took me awhile to do it (I started this layout at the beginning of a 12 hour crop.  I didn't have my mojo yet).  All the scallops around the circle were hand punched and then individually glued on the back of the circle.  My challenge when I went to this crop was to not take my Cricut and just use punches.  As it was, I forgot to bring a 1 inch punch so I borrowed one from a fellow crafter!  Thank goodness.

This layout was made of our family Thanksgiving gathering.  We hosted this particular year.   The flourish on the left side is from Sizzix.  The scallop circle is from The Crafters Workshop. The border is from a Fiskars punch.

Beautiful Mom

I made this layout of my mom.  She doesn't like to have pictures taken of her but I always insist.  So, this layout demonstrates how beautiful I think she is.

Birthday Cupcake

This layout is of my son's 2nd birthday.  He wanted cupcakes for his birthday "cake".  I was happy to make him vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting.

Fall Fun

This is a two page layout that I made of our boys.  They are having a great time playing with the fall leaves.  The leaves are made of several Cricut cartridges.  The font is from All Mixed Up.

Pretty Blossoms

I have always thought that the blossoms of these trees (plum) are so pretty.  They always blossom in February.  I used a Martha Stewart punch for the patterned layers.  I also used scallop scissors for the matte.

All Day Crop

I attended an all day crop on Saturday. I had so much fun.  I scrapped with a bunch of really nice girls.  I love being able to have uninterupted time to do something that I really enjoy.  I scrapped from 10:30 to 9:30.  I completed ten 12 X 12 pages.  I'll be posting them after tomorrow.  I did need to add a few more embellishments to finish the pages off but I am pretty happy with the results.  I'll be back tomorrow to share what I completed.
