Christmas update

I first wanted to share this cute little poem shared by a friend that only scrappers/stampers can appreciate. I thought is was pretty cute:

Twas the night before Christmas,I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
Or a Cricut, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him,"Hi Santa" I said "You know.... good little girls should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa, and now I've been caught."
"But I was just so excited to see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work.
He shook his head quickly and left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear
"You've got enough crap, I 'll see you next year!"

Thought I would also post a couple of pictures of the boys Christmas morning as they were so excited to see what Santa had brought for them.

I was also tickled by the thoughfulness of the gifts they got for me. Kaden told me that they wanted to get me things that would "keep me snuggly warm". So they did; proper boots for winter weather, hat/mitt/scarf set and PJs and soft socks. Thanks you.

Fairytales Photography

I wanted to share only a couple of the wonderful pictures we had done by BJ and Melanie from Fairytales Photography. These two ladies were excellent photographers even in the chilliest of weather. It was a bit challenging for the boys to stay warm and look happy...but we did get some wonderful pictures that we will cherish for years to come. Check out their blog for other great shots.

Family Chipboard Album
I am so proud of this creation, I thought I would add it as my first post. I used Bo Bunny Family chipboard album and some yummy Scenic Route paper. This project I created for a class I taught at our LSS and then I decided to give it to my mom for Christmas last year. I am now under pressure to create for her something as equally I have been hard at work on a 2009 calendar.

WOW...I have finally made it to my first post

I cannot believe that I have finally figured out this "blog thing". I am so excited to start posting some of my creations, tips, tricks and online finds. Check back soon!!!
