Fall '09

Hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving. We had a big dinner at my husband's parents house. We enjoyed the dinner as well as company of twenty some family members. We had turkey, fried turkey, ham, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, 2 kinds of sweet potato casseroles, asparagus casserole, rigatoni, black eye peas, cream corn, salad, rolls, fruit salad, grape salad, 12 pies and cakes.... I'm sure I'm forgetting something. Then my daughter and I went out early on Friday for shopping. I usually work Friday after Thanksgiving and I was not going to miss out this opportunity. I actually had a whole week off :) I thought it was fun getting out early. Here is the page I got done yesterday using a sketch from Pink Sketches. I dread going back to work tomorrow...... oh well...

Thankful & X'mas Eve

Posting 2 pages here. The first one was done for MSW and Dreamgirls. They both include a list on their challenges I decided to make just one. I asked my dd to make a list for me. This photo was taken a couple of weeks ago at a park by our house. Trees had started changing colors and I wanted to take some pics there. I layered 2 transparency frames and that was it for embellies. Those flowers are cut-outs from a paper. I don't get to use chipboard numbers much. So I decided to use them up on this page. The second layout was created based on a sketch from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks. I liked how the chipboard alphas turned out the other day and I wanted to do it again. I inked white chipboards and applied Glossy Accents over them.

December Delights

I loved working with this sketch from Sketchy Thursdays. I scrapped these photos taken a few days before Christmas. I couldn't find any color I liked in my alpha stash, I decided to alter the white ones. I applied green ink onto the chipboard letters and coated with Glossy Accents. I had seen it done but I had never tried it myself. And I really like how they turned out! I will definitely do it again. Scrapbook Kit Club is a sponsor this week and you can link up your layout to their blog as well :)

Little Blossom

My Mind's Eye is hosting a sketch challenge this week and I created this page based on their fabulous sketch. Everything, except chipboards and 2 flowers, is of MME. 2 blue flowers are rub-ons. I applied rub-ons on white cardstock and cut them out:)


I made this page based on a sketch from That Scrappy Girl. I had such hard time choosing papers, I almost gave up on it. Then I left it alone for a couple of days and went back working on it. I am glad I finished it :)

October Tradition & Picachu

It was so nice to have a day off today! Finished up the pages I've been working on. The first one was done based on a sketch from My Sketch World and the second one based on 52 Sketches...52 Weeks sketch. Both turned out to be pretty simple. No flowers !!

Trick or Treat and Happy & Free

I made only 2 pages this week. I don't do well when the time changes and I was tired most of the week. Plus, I wasn't feeling all that great this week. I am hoping I can get some scrapping done this weekend. We'll see. We may go for a drive tomorrow. Anyway, about these pages.... the first one was created based on a sketch from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks. It is a Halloween photo from 1998. She was 4 and that was the first time we took her trick-or-treating to the neighborhood. We went with her aunt and her cousin. She had a blast. The second page was done using a sketch from Pink Sketches. These photos are of her first visit to Disneyland. We snapped a few photos on Mickey's car right outside his house. I also combined this one with Scrapping the Music. The song of the week is a theme song of Happy Days. Love that show!! Have a nice weekend :)
