More Layouts! I'm on a Roll!

I did four more layouts during the Willow Traders use a kit challenge. These are from an older Transparent Touches and Tags kit. I love that kit club because there are always 3 kits to choose from: a girl kit; a boyish kit; and a neutral kit. One of the very few kit clubs that offer boyish kits! Or at least that is my opinion. Anywho here are two of the layouts. I need to take pictures of the other two. Maybe tonight, I will have some time. I am loving the look of stitching on my layouts with my new sewing machine.

Wow how time flies. Nicholas was only 2 months old in both these layouts. Now he is almost 18 months. It seems so long ago. Makes me kind of sad but also a little relieved because he is starting to sleep better and eat real food and say words. My sister is due in June with a little girl so I will get my baby fix and my girlie-girl pink and fru-fru fix. Heeehee. I need a couple years of sleep before I think of having another one!

I am getting ready to leave work for the day. Have a great night!

Life Preserver Club - December 2008 kit

I finally got in some scrapping time. I received a sewing machine for Christmas and am loving the look of it on my pages (if you can't tell). Willow Traders is having a "Use a Kit" challenge. I picked this kit to use. All I had left after these layouts and the card was one piece of patterned paper, some trim and the rest of the thickers. It was awesome having the day off today and being able to scrap a little. Now, I am off to make a big Turkey dinner (my first time making a turkey). My dad found turkeys on sale and gave one to me and my sister to make for dinner for our families. Turkey, mashed taters, stuffing (stovetop - but it still counts), veggies and cranberry sauce. I can't wait!
Hope everyone had a nice long weekend!

This is not scrapbook related but fun!

If you haven't heard of Swagbucks my suggestion is you go here and sign up. What is swagbucks? It is a search engine. Works pretty much the same as google except that everytime you search for something you can earn "swagbucks" or points. You can trade these swagbucks in for giftcards. I joined a few weeks ago and just traded my swagbucks in for a Target gift card. They also had Barnes & Noble, Macy's and Starbucks that I can remember off the top of my head. Pretty cool concept for something we do every single day! If you have any questions, feel free to leave me a comment.

I scrapped!

wooo hooo! it's only been forever. its a very simple layout but still I SCRAPPED!

It's not the best picture but it's pretty dreary here. It has been snowing since late last night and we are expect snow every day through Tuesday or Wednesday! Just a simple layout of my son and sister. I am loving the look of distressed edges. Hopefully I will get more time to scrap today during nap time but I am still a little flu-ish so I may just lay down and take a nap too. Hope everyone is having a GREAT weekend!
