The Coffee and a Little Girl Layout

Thursday, December 29, 2011
So today, I'm going to share my last scrapbook layout for the year 2011. 
I just can't believe that this year is almost over. 
And I can't believe myself that this year I did more scrapbook layouts than the years before. 
I'm going to count how many scrapbook layouts I'd done and let you all stay tune!!!'s my layout titled 'The Coffee and a Little Girl'.

Phoebe was only {a little} over 2 years when she had the first Ice Coffee drink.
She loved it..{can't you tell from the picture? LOL}

This is also the first time I used a gray cardstock as my layout baseand I gotta tell...
I'M LOVING it!!!!

This page was made for a couple different challenges, the first one is over at Scrapbook Challenges Forum
and the second challenge is Simon Says Stamp Blog for Anything Goes Challenge.

Well...that's my last layout!! {sob..sob}
So...until then Scrappers.

Crayon Monogram Letter ~ Teacher's Gift

Wednesday, December 21, 2011
Hello...4 more days until Christmas and I can't wait.
I'm almost done with Christmas Shopping...just need to get one more thing for my hubby.
I kinda wait until the last minute...because I can't keep the excitement a secret.
You're probably wondering...can I still get him something he wants at the last minutes...??
The answer is YES. He's a kid at heart...and getting him a present is FUN and not so hard.

Anyway...enough about that...

Today is the last day of School for Dustin. He will at home with me for about 2 weeks.
So...yesterday...I made a couple of Teacher's gifts {He has two teachers}.
Again...last minutes things..but it turned out quite nice. OOhhhh let me say...I LOVE IT!!

I made the Crayon Monogram Letter for each teacher. You might have seen this around..specially if you follow pinterest. I decided to give it a try and I'm just so happy with the result and probably will
make more for my kids. it is...{just one of them}

and some closer looks...

This is just such an inexpensive gift.
I bought 2 boxes of crayons and it only cost me .94 cents {.47/each box from Walmart}
the frame or shadow box was on sale at Michaels for $3.99 + 25% extra..= $2.99
A total of $3.93/each...How about that, right?

This isn't really necessary for teacher's can make this for your kids or even for yourself.
And like I said earlier...I made two of these. To see the other can  my video HERE.

I guess that's for today.
Thank you so much for stopping by.

Winter Warm Wishes Card

Tuesday, December 13, 2011
Hello my dear scrappy friends,
It's been a little quiet here in my blog. I'm still doing my December Daily...just need to catch up a bit.
Other than that,..our lives have been a little busy during this Holiday season.

Anyway...I have a Holiday card that I made for The Robin's Nest blog. 
It's so easy to make and so glittery pretty and adorable....
So, here's my card...

It didn't take me long to make this....and I have to admit that the pretty papers and the die cut embellishments do the job.

To find out more about the product I sure to check my post over HERE.

Well...I hope in this busiest month of the all still find some times to create and have fun.
Thanks for stopping by and take care.

"The First" Layout ~ Sketchy Thursday Challenge

Wednesday, December 7, 2011 a bit last minute...
I decided to a make layout for Sketchy Thursdays Challenge. It's due in a few hours...:D

When I started the layout...I was a little confused and didn't know what to do...
I've been making my December Daily in a smaller 12x12 paper was a bit shock for me earlier.

Anyway, here's my take on the current sketch challenge.

A lot of Amy Tangerine's stuff for sure ;P

Well...I guess that's for now...
My scraproom was a mess due to my 3-year old daughter scrapping with me, so I gotta clean it before
I make the next project.

Have a good one.

December Daily 2011 ~ Day 2, 3 and 4

Monday, December 5, 2011
It's Monday...and it's super cold here. 
We had Snow over the weekend and I had to work Friday and Saturday night {over nights}.

I didn't miss my December Daily..I only missed posting it here on the blog.
So, today you will see some pictures from Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4.

So far...every things are going as I planned and I really enjoy it so much.
In case you're wondering...I didn't do the foundation pages a head of time.
It's kinda scare me....Here's the question that always comes in my mind.
"What IF the foundation pages don't go well with the pictures?..."

Well....let's not wait any longer.
Here's the DD day 2.

Now, DD day 3.

Day 3 is probably my fave layout so far. Don't get me wrong...LOVE all DD my layouts, 
but this one I used a patterned transparency and went really well with the pictures.

And last but not least...DD Day 4 {yesterday}.

That's my recent DD pages. 
I probably haven't mentioned it, but I plan to do 31 days instead of 25. So....I still have 26 days of pages to share with you. I hope you enjoy it. 
If you do...check back again soon.

Have a terrific week..
Stay warm!

December Daily 2011 ~ Cover Album

Thursday, December 1, 2011
The first day of December and the beginning of a new adventure. 

You must have heard about the December Daily that Ali Edwards started a few years ago.
Well, I've decided to join the FUN and start my own 2011 December Daily.

Last month...I looked and looked around for inspirations. I wasted a little time and started this album a little bit late....:D lets say I just finished the cover today...LOL.

So, here's my December Daily 2011 Album

It also took me awhile to decide the theme or colors.
I finally went with the traditional Christmas Colors, and I have to admit that I just LOVE it.

Here are some pictures of the album

Anyway....I'll be back tomorrow with the first day of December Daily.

Hope you have a terrific Holiday Season.
