We've been baking!

December is here and it's crazy busy but I love it!!!  I love that we do so many family things in December.  We've been to concerts and parades, decorated the house and tree, and of course the baking!  I found this super cute hat at the dollar store and I knew my daughter would be a good sport and wear it for me!

I've also been working on my December Daily, it's nowhere near done but I might be able to show some sneak peeks soon!

Almost December!!!!

I love this time of year.  We just put up the Christmas tree last night and today we're docorating the house.  It is so beautiful.  I love the soft glow of the lights.  It's probably the only time of year where I actually sit at watch tv in the living room.

I'm starting a December daily this week, I know it's a little late for it but I just can't do it until I know what pics will go into it so it will likely be a month long project for me.

I have been working on a few other Chrismas projects including a mixed media Canvas!   It's my first canvas and I had so much fun doing it (even if all my paint was dry)!!  LOL

I also made a rosette tree.  I got the inspiration for it on the cover of the CTMH magazine.  This one was a lot of work!!


Finally here are some little tags I made with leftover papers.  They were fun and easy to make!

November DT reveal at Scrapbook Nerd!

I got to work with MME products again this month!  How lucky am I???  The Cut & Paste Charm is such a beautiful collection with the blue, teal and orange!! 

I have been wanting to do a LO with a pie chart in it for a long time. When I saw the tiny word stickers I knew it would be perfect for it!

 I can't tell you all how much I love my Cameo. I use it almost all the time for titles on my LO's!

I love how adding something as simple as a couple enamel dots can make such a difference!

I was excited to see how well this paper matched with my son's hockey jersey!

Fall colors!

Fall is definately my favorite time of year for many reasons.  I love the cooler weather, the colors, the kids are back to school and in a routine again.  Every year I bring them out on a little photo shoot once the leaves have changed.  I'm sad to say this year I could not convince my son to come with us.  He is almost 12 years old and thinks it's not so cool getting his photos taken anymore.  :(

I did get some nice ones of my miniature model.  She is just so photogenic, it's so easy with her.


Love that head of hair!!


Love those beautiful blue eyes!

My october DT reveals at Scrapbook Nerd!

Hey everyone, I was so lucky this month to be given such a wonderful collection to work with.  I got to work with MME Cut & Paste Flair!  This collection is a must have!  It is so pretty and girly! 

Here is my first LO, I really love the brads that came with this collection!

The ladies at Scrapbook Nerd challenged us to use some journalling cards on our LO.  Well, I'm not much for journalling so I decided to mat my photo with them.


My last LO is my favorite!  I really enjoyed doing that background.


I created the border using a template and Martha Stewart texture effects.

I made a simple banner using washi tape!
