Disney Parade

I don't believe in being "behind" in scrapping my pictures - I like to think of it as having plenty to scrap when the kids start refusing to let me take any more pictures! Here are some of the pics I never finished scrapping from our Disney trip in 2009! The kids all love the parades and I think this one was my favorite. Aeron helped Austin out by giving him a better view.

This 2 pager came from a great sketch by Cheri at Let's Scrap. I don't know where most of the stuff came from because it has all been in my stash for a while!




We love to go to Grandma's House. We have lots of food (of course), we talk and play games! She has this great, big, old table she adds leaves to hold all of us - it even held all the kids until recently. We will have many memories of wonderful holidays shared around this beautiful, old table!

PP and embellishments are from Basic Grey, flowers from Flora Doodles and pleated ribbon from Pink Paisley. All the background words were masked from Basic Grey alphas and a cat's eye. Sketch is from Sketchy Thursdays.

Don't Shoot Your Eye Out

The 2nd in big gifts for our little cub scouts last year was their very own Red Ryder BB guns. They have been eyeing their brothers for a long time!

The twins have been in Cub Scouts for the last two years and really enjoy the camping side of it. So when Christmas came around last year it seem fitting to buy them "real" camping gear, rather than the toy stuff they had. Once they opened their sleeping bags, I wasn't entirely sure we would get them back out of them. This page is made from Bo Bunny's Cambridge line (I love Bo Bunny!) and I used one of Cherie Averill's sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches.

How Many More Days?

It is the inevitable question I get - every year - throughout the month of December. It doesn't seem to matter how old they get, how well they can count or the fact that they are perfectly capable of reading the calendar. I even made them an advent calendar several years ago, and still I get the question - How many more days until Christmas? This LO was created with paper from Echo Park's Merry Christmas line and is based on a sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches.

Waiting for Santa

Tabitha got some great pics of the boys by the Christmas tree - they were so funny they kept telling her to take pictures while they pretended to be asleep! I am not completely sure who was in charge of that photo shoot, but she is great with kids. You can see some of her other pics here Triplett Photography. This LO came from a Pencil Lines sketch with more of that great Midnight Frost from Bo Bunny.

You Melt My Heart

I found this blog Stuck Sketches just in time - because I was stuck! I love this sketch and it was perfect for the pics Tabitha took of the twins in front of the Christmas tree last year. It was made even better by the paper and embellies from Bo Bunny's Midnight Frost and some ribbon from Basic Grey and American Crafts - plus a little tweaking with Stickles and Gelly Roll pens!

Good Times

I am making great headway on my "Christmas past" pictures! Hopefully I will get them all scrapped before my Christmas spirit is gone! Here is a LO based on another great sketch from Liz at The Scrappiest! Paper and embellishments from Bo Bunny's Block Party - I love this line, it is so great for all things boy!
