Another post!!

Woohoo, another post in the same week. I'm rockin' and rollin'! The new year has totally motivated me to scrap and be productive in the different areas of life. I'm trying to de-clutter the house. Sell a bunch of my scrap goodies and finally make that room into a playroom/office and I'm learning to be smart about money. I hope all this inspiration will stick for a while, I love all the work I'm getting done!

Here are a few layouts I did last year, I'm just now getting around to posting it. I have done so much in the past few weeks, I love it! I'll have to scan them and post them soon. Right now I'm participating in a "Use a Kit" challenge over at Willow Traders. I'm also finishing up my designs for the upcoming February kit for Color Me Miki, you guys are going to love the kit...it's SWEET!!! Now, on to the layouts.

Remember our trip to Lake Tahoe last year, like in May..LOL. Yes, I'm still doing layouts with it. I'm hoping to finish by this year's May! haaha! This is a layout I made for my Mom, hence the smaller size. Really simple, just a sheet of cardstock, the blue PP is actually packaging from a K&Co sticker sheet, and a scrap piece of Making Memories die cut paper. I abolutely LOVE LOVE the LAX glitter Thickers from American Crafts. I love how it could look fun--like in this layout--or elegant. I created the flowers at the bottom, esp love the layered action with the demin fabric.

Here we are on the beach at Lake Tahoe. No matter how cold it was, the kids still loved it! Started off using a Polka Dot Whimsy kit, then added a bunch of stuff I had laying around. Didn't have another "o" for Magpoc, so used a heart.

My family. I love when we travel together. It makes life good!

Finally a preview of layouts to come. I've started working on Santa Barabara/Solvang pictures. We took this trip Sept. of last year. We went for my Dad's bday getaway. Here we are on Stearn's Wharf. I could finally use all those "road trip" type embellishments I have..LOL!

That's all I have for now. I need to scan a bunch of them and I'll report back to you soon! Thanks for visiting! I hope I can inspire you to create in 2009! Take care!
