Some Making Memories Love....

Well, their new Love Story line for Valentine's Day anyway! It's one of my very favorite so far! Here's a LO I did with mostly MM supplies (papers, rub-ons, kraft word stickers)...It's photos of Tate making "Love Day" cards (you should really hear him say's the cutest!)


And if you loved their past Noteworthy line, you should see the NEW Noteworthy line...It's GORGEOUS! (and a little birdie told me that it will more than likely show up in a future Nook Kit, so sign up now if you havn't!)

Hope everyone had a great weekend! :)

Happy Love Day!

I just wanted to pop in real quick and wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day and thank you all for the birthday wishes! And of course, I have to share a cute pic of Tate for "Love Day" as he's calling it.


We made Valentine's for Brian today and I'll share those when I get some pics. Tate had a lot of fun with some paint and markers and a picture. They turned out really cute!

I also finished up a layout a couple of days ago of my yummy birthday cupcakes from Lori...and they were as yummy as they look! Thanks girl!


Happy Love Day! :)

Happy Birthday to ME!

Well, my birthday isn't actually until tomorrow the 11th, but I had a couple of fun birthday celebrations over the weekend!

We had a small family birthday gathering last night and I got this:


Yeah, I finally got out of the dark ages! Yippee! I'm such a music-a-holic, so I'm THRILLED to have this little baby and I've already got plenty of songs on it to keep me busy for a while!

Also, my scrappy girls had a little birthday crop for me Friday night and we had lots of fun! I even had my own birthday cookie cake!


I got some fun new scrap supplies and the CUTEST pajama's with owls on them! I'll snap a pic when I get them washed :)

I havn't had much time for scrapping the last few days (didn't get much done at the crop as usual!), but I did find some great inspiration in the new Memory Makers magazine! Starting on page 58 there are some great layouts from Memory Makers Master Crystal Jeffrey Rieger and I LOVED the one on page 62. The colors, the design, all of it! So much in fact that I pretty much copied it...every once in a while it's fun to not have to think about how you are going to do your layout! Anywho, here's my version (really the only differences are a different blue patterned paper and different title font than the original):


Hopefully my next one will be more original :) Hope you're all having a great weekend!

March Goodness at the Nook

Yep, I just got the February kit a week and a half ago and we've already got the preview for March! Wanna see? (yes, you do!)





They have very few extra kits to go around this time, so if you aren't subscribed to this awesome kit club, you want to do it early! You can go
HERE to get started! I'm also told that the add-ons for March are going to be must haves!

I'm still working with the February kit and it's just gorgeous! Here are a couple of layouts I've made with it:



I think there are still a couple of extra kits left if you are interested!

I've also been working with my last official DT projects for
AllyScraps. It's hard to believe that 6 months have already gone by! I love the community over there...They are some terriffic gals! Here's my latest creation using the Sassafras Lass Royal Bliss line:


I finally got some pics of Tate in the snow...We got enough this time around that it stuck for more than a few hours! I'll share more pics later! :)

So Much Going on This Weekend...

And I'm starting off with a little Tooot! I was chosen again as one of the winners for the product challenge for January over at Scenic Route for my Keeping Tabs layout! And my layout even made the front page of the challenge section, yeehaw! You can see it HERE. I'll be getting a little sampling of their new CHA release Grafton when they get it in stock and I couldn't be more excited! Scenic Route is by far my favorite manufacturer--their stuff is so fun and easy to work with!

Also, this weekend is the virtual crop over at The Nook. There are TONS ( like 30 plus!) challenges to participate in and some fun games going on! The prizes are amazing! You can find all the info HERE. I hope some of you stop by, introduce yourselves and join in the fun!

One of my challenges is to do an interview (of your kids, spouse, grandparents, etc) and use the interview as your journaling for your layout. Here is a sample I made:


I interviewed Tate right before his 3rd birthday about all of his favorite things and this is what I came up with!

I'm also particiapting in a challenge that my friend and fellow Nook girl,
Kate came up with called "Year in the Life ATC Group". We're just going month by month making ATC cards for whatever inspires us....things that happened during the month or just a small piece of art. So far it's been really fun. I've been trying to take a few notes in a notebook and go back and work on my cards when I have some time. Here are 4 that I have done for January so far (they fit on the cool 7 Gypsies ATC Spinner rack--awesome little thing it is!)





Have a fabulous weekend...I'm hoping to have some fun new creations to share sometime next week! I'm off to work on some Nook Crop challenges!
