The new January Kit from SCRAPTHAT! has so many beautiful papers from My Minds Eye Lost and Found and many embellishments that you will love them just as much as I do! This is my first DT and I was so excited to see how great this kit would be!
In this first lo, the feathers that come with the kit made think of Native America and so therefore the title reflects that....Roxy is my Rose and the blue feather flower went so well with this photo...
In this lo, I bought out all the beautiful reds that comes with this kit! I used the red stickles, included in the kit to make my own swirls. I also used more of the gorgeous papers to make my own flowers. The pearl brads for the flowers also come with the kit!
In this lo, I wanted it to be sophisticated, glamourous with a bit of a vintage look. It is glittery and the butterflies that come also with this kit are stunning!
I hope you will come over to SCRAPTHAT! to see these new kits for January! There are so many more embellishments included that I am even working on another lo using this kit!

Have you been?

Have you been naughty this year? Well, as some of us parents know that are children can be naughty sometimes…especially teenage years! Lol So this layout was inspired for fun to remind us that not always are our children as nice as we want them to be. The tag was inspired on line from design des troy. I loved the tag and so I decided to make my own. It is not exact but close enough to make right in your own home! Oh, and of course like I always say “any size or colors”!

Here is the finished layout:

Here are some close-ups:

Happy Holidays!

Christmas Log

Well, its almost been a whole week and I haven't been able to do a new layout yet, but I did make this Christmas Log for my annual cookie party this year. In fact, I made 10 of them!
For many years now I have been going to a cookie party with some old friends that some of us only get to see each other once a year. It is really fun to do and the best part if you get 10 dozen different cookies back! YUM! My husband cant wait till I get home with
During our chatting we all enjoy the cookies with coffee and then we all vote for the best cookie and the best decorated packaging. Thats what I love to do the's like scrapbooking...let the creativity go! This is not my idea of the Christmas Log..I seen it last year from Martha Stewart. However, since last year I knew that is what I was going to make.
My daughter, Roxy, was able to get the perfect size containers free for me. I found the paper at Joann's...and was able to cut them in half...costing 10 cents each. The green ann gold spray I also found at Joann's. The birds I just added red feathers to make them more elegant. I added ribbon and with my cricut made a stamped tag.
Here are some photos of the finished log:
Here is another angle:
Hope you enjoyed!
***Updated @ 1650 today....they were a big hit and I won the decorating part! YAY!
