Holiday Cards

It’s the most wonderful time of the year (ding – dong, ding-dong, with the kids jingle belling and . . . .)

Actually it is time to start thinking about what you are going to do for your holiday cards. In the past few years, I have received a few photo cards. You know me and photos, I love each and everyone one of them.

If you didn’t know already, Shuterfly has a great holiday card selection. I pulled these images down from the Shutterfly sit for you to see a few.

They have folded greeting cards with the photos and wishes inside. They are available in a 5x7 size which leaves plenty of room to write your Christmas message.
They also have flat photo cards as well. You just submit your photo, choose your style and away you go! The flat photo cards are available in 4x8 size and the 5x7 size and are printed on high-quality matte or glossy photo paper. This is an affordable and stylish way to provide Christmas wishes to everyone on your list.

Check them out today!

Halloween Disneyland

Here is the 2nd layout from the Basic Grey class yesterday that Rebecca yesterday. She tought us the the 6 petal rose technique. The rose got a little squished in the scan when made the layout look a little wonkee. Again, a few little changes to make it my own. I used the Jill D Zines Fancy Cuts for the Halloween title block cut on my Cricut! Volia - another layout I am really pleased with!

Sweet Pumpkin Face

Today I attended the monthly Basic Grey class at the Scrapbook Oasis. Rebecca makes us two layouts in accompany the Basic Grey layout. This month we are working with the Pyrus paper collection. I took this layout and added a bit of my own touch. Kari and Ching were there with me today and they said the layout would look really cute with some stiching. Well since I had green thread in my machine, I put some sewing on there. Love it! I lifted this sweet picture of my daughter and grandson off of Facebook. It was from a day at the pumpkin patch. What a sweet and touching moment between mother and son!!

Another Vintage Groove Necklace

I pulled this off of the Making Memories Jewerly Facebook page. This necklace is a perfect combination of what's classic and contemporary. What do you think? If you are looking for the Vintage Groove collection, they have it at the Michael's in Orange, CA.

My latest kick

Mangos and raspberries! Love them! I am trying to eat healthier these days and you just can't go wrong with fresh fruit!

Vintage Groove Earrings

Use a necklace strand to create a pair of earrings. Add a sample charm for a stunning look. The Michaels in Orange carries the Vintage Groove line.

Scrapin Escapes Weekend

This past weekend Kari and I headed out to San Diego for a Scrapin Escapes weekend at the Kona Kia Resort. We had a good time. There were other ladies that we knew and it was great to catch up with them as well as meet some new ladies! These are the layouts I completed (well except for one that I still need to get some information for the journaling - I will upload that one as soon as I get the info I need).
Little Miss Rylee's 1st day of Kindergarten! (The rosette on this page were made using the new Tim Holtz Sizzix die seen here - the lady next to me had it and I borrowed hers.)
This is an old Candice Carpenter Halloween kit that I finally finished. The picture was taken last month at Disneyland.

This layout was from the Basic Grey class kit a few months ago. I wasn't quite sure I liked the layout until I found the perfect pictures ~ Amara's 1st birthday party.
These pictures are from my 5k run back in September. And that cute running girl on the lower left hand corner is from Close to my Heart stamps. I saw the set of girl stamps and wanted it. And when the lady said I could have the set for 1/2 off to add to my collection, I snapped it right up! And I decided not to be a collector any longer so I found a way to use it right away. I think it adds a great little element to the layout! This layout also used my other large purchase of the weekend. There is on the left hand side a little pull out tab. When you pull out the tab, you can see the course map that we ran. That stamp set had a couple other elements and cost me a whopping $1.00. If these stamps can be made so in-expensive, why do the rest of them have to cost so much??

These pictures were taken last year at Benihana's for Arianna's 9th birthday! Again I used that tab stamp to make another pull out picture. This pull out is where Arianna got to see her present. Patrick and I bought her a bike!
Amara is taking tennis lessons on Wednesday and Arianna took these photos! I think they both did a great job!

happy Halloween!

Jillian brought the kids over on Halloween so that we could see them in their coustums and do some Treak or Treating! Nothing spookey here!
In case you missed it in the picture above, Sarge and Bailey got dressed up too! Michelle and Anthony bought Sarge and Bailey costumes.
Bailey is so good. That Sarge ran all over the yard.

We didnt' get to see Rylee and Dane on Halloween, but Darleen sent me pictures! Nothing spooky here either!
