Our New Addition.....

This is one of Cameron's Christmas presents. He was so excited he cried. And guess what he named her, "Marley". I just hope she does not act like Marley. And the best part of all we got her from the pound. She looks like a Border Collie, but the mother was a German Shepard, Lab mix. So I guess the daddy was a Border Collie. The kids are just ecstatic.

Go Santa Go! Go Santa Go!!

That is what my daughter was saying as we watched this site: http://www.noradsanta.org/en/index.html

I am trying to embed the code so you can watch the you tube video, but I am a little tech challenged here. I just love this site. It is so fun to watch Norad track Santa!! It is an easy way to get the kids in bed when he hits the east coast here.

And for my Austrailian friends I hear he comes your way first.

Happy Christmas Layout

I have just been having some fun scrapping in the Christmas spirit. I have to admit that scrapping layouts for Christmas is a challenge for me. It seems to get a bit monotonous. KWIM? Does anyone else feel this way? So I decided to just take some inspiration from the photos themselves. Hence the Christmas tree. It is fun taking photos though of the kids. My little girl is enjoying Christmas so much and it is so fun to see the enjoyment in their faces.

This is a close up of the poinsettias with an custom brad made using my Itop. I tried something a little different with this brad and it worked well. I used one of the "snow flake" stickers from the sheet of "Tinsel Trims" foil stickers. I have to say that I was quite please with how it turned out. Then I topped if of with a "bling fling" jewel.

After cutting a tree out with my Cricut, I used the Christmas lights from the "Season's Stringings" border rubons. Then I decorated with some of the "Holidays Trimmings" and adhered some journaling.

Products used were: Cardstock: Bazzill; Patterned papers, chipboard sticker, foil stickers, ribbon, rubons, Itop brad maker, bling: Imaginisce; pen: Copic.
Thanks for looking.
