If at first you don't succeed....

Well, I did it again, I entered myself into a Design Team call For the blog "These are a few of my favorite things" ( A bit scary but sometimes scary is good and like I always tell my girls, "You never know until you try". So this time I used some old layouts I had done that I personally really liked. I did make some nice ones yesterday at my friend's house but I decided to go with these three instead. It may come back to bite me in the butt but who knows! Here are my three submissions:

The Big Reveal!

I just barely finished the plaques and they were still drying this morning as the girls opened all their gifts so as a result they didn't get them until after they had opened all their many other cool toys and gifts, I think they were a bit gifted out! They did seem to really like them and were quite interested in how I made them. Caitie was quite excited about her new music box and the fact that it was a jewelry box as well AND played the same music as her sisters' music box was icing on the cake! All in all this was a great Christmas! Here are some photos of the girls with the plaques and the music box.

Nearly finished...

The plaques and music box are nearly finished. The designs have been applied now all that is left is to Mod Poge over it all. I was so happy with how Caitie's turned out! I love my Cricut Expression and my wonderful husband who allowed me to get the cartridge that had that fantastic tree on it! Also thanks to my new friend Penny for digging in her kids sand box and getting me those tiny shells on Rylie's plaque. The picture of Rylie's plaque was taken before I added two little seagull stickers. I'll be sure to post the girls' reactions as they open them!

Scrap pages

So yesterday I got to take some time out from the busy activities of December and spend the day scrapping with friends. I have so much to do and unfortunately I don't think I will make my goal of finishing photos from 2008 before the end of 2010! Well, there's always next year! That's what I love about scrapping, it's never done and there is always something more to create! Now that my last scrap day of the year is behind me I will get back to working on the plaques for the girls, they are coming along and I hope once school is out I will have more time to finish them! I am excited about the pictures of them I have in my head, let's hope that translates into reality! Here are the pages I got done yesterday. 2 layouts are from the "Remember Me" Kit club I am part of through Scrapbook Generation and most of the other layouts are derived from my very talented friend Alicia and her sketches!
