Home for Christmas

I'm finally getting around to it. Yes, scrapping those holiday photos. Not of the pictures from 2009, but the ones from 2008. Ah, you gotta start somewhere, right?!

Lots of October Afternoon used in this one.

Coming in March..

I've been searching a lot of blogs lately, and there seems to be so much goodness going on in March, particularly the first week. One of these exciting events is happening at the Prima blog on March 5th. No one knows for sure exactly what's going to going down, but I can guarantee it'll be worth it to check out!

Silver "Belles"

I've had this photo sitting around since Christmas of '08, and I was looking for the prefect fun, yet seasonal papers. When Cosmo Cricket's "Jolly by Golly" came out, I just knew I had found the one!

I've also used this page for the "let's celebrate" challenge at Scrapbook Challenges!

Using a mix of papers (which I rarely do because I'm too nervous!)

Sweet Treats

It's nice using old papers and old photos. It feels like I accomplished more for some reason.

Supplies used"
Making Memories Love Notes patterned papers,
American Crafts primary brads and Thickers

Oh, Prima...

So, if you've been following my blog (or you're one of the amazing YS'ers), you know how much I absolutely love Prima. Here are some of their new, stunning products, and I'm not going to lie, but I've already purchased the script alphabet - it was just too fabulous to pass up!

The Graduate

I have had these pictures from my graduation for a good 9 months - a little nervous to scrap such a big accomplishment. But, when I found the skecth on Creative Scrappers I knew I ahd the perfect photo for it. And, Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry collection just fit so well!

I have so many pictures from both of my trips to Rome. And, we just booked our third trip for May, so I'll more to add to the collection. So, when I'm in the scrappin' mood and I don't have any new photos, Rome usually becomes my subject.

I completed this page for this week's Sketchy Thursday Sketch

And it's up!

So, if you have yet to see my page for the Handmade Love Challenge Blog, here it is:

The flowers are handmade, and I used the tutorial from the Studio Calico blog. I had fun with these flowers, so I know I'll be using them again!

I used some of the Girl Friday line from Cosmo Cricket from this, and added a piece of patterned paper from the Sunshine Lollipop line from Sassafras.

Another Sketchy Thursday Contribution

Using a lot of old Prima for this layout - man, it feels nice to dig into the stash once in a while!
