I love this girl so much...

Giraffes are in this scrapbooking season! Have you noticed all the cute kids clothes with giraffes? Brooke has a shirt and a few of the other little girls at church have some cute outfits with them as well. But they are just as hot in scrapbooking! I love this giraffe paper!

Close up! Simple and cute...that's what I go for!


Happy 2nd Brithday Benton!

Isn't this card so cute? Don't you just love the Wild About You stamp set? You can only get it through the end of June! they are retiring this GREAT set - #115110 - Set of 8 - $25.95 USD. I also wanted to share that these animal's eyes are the perfect size for teeny tiny googlie eyes! They look so cute! More googlie eyes are in the future...


Sometimes you just don't have a picture...

...but you want to scrapbook a moment. Have you ever had this happen to you? Well I have several times. The below page is all about hearing Brooke's heartbeat for the first time. It was such an amazing experience that I just had to make a page all about it!

Journaling says, "8.13.08 - The doctor said I might not hear it at 10 weeks, but when I heard your heartbest, that's when I knew I was going to be a Momma! I heart you already!"


Daddy & Me

I snapped this picture on a trip we recently took to Topeka, KS. We were just dancing in the car for a while trying to cheer up Brooke. I love the way that she's looking at her Daddy!

Don't you just love the pink and Tempting Tourqouise (#107103-12x12-20 sheets, $7.50 USD) together? And check out the Kraft Corduroy Buttons(#114340-24 Buttons, $9.95 USD)!

Happy Father's Day Sam!


Another Page

On this page I used some of the professinal pics that we had taken before Brooke was born! I love them so much!

I used a Simply Scrappin kit from Stampin Up and also some felt accents from my stash of embellishments!

I love to use my handwritting on pages that I create. Not only is it faster than typing and printing and cutting it to the right size, it's just a good way for future generations to see a little more of your personality!

Hope you enjoy it!


A Scrapbook Page...!!!

Since what I most like to do is scrapbook, I thought that it would be fitting to start having my pages displayed on my blog! I wish I had a 12x12 scanner but I don't...so pictures will just have to do! Hope you like them!

This page was totally inspired by a conversation I had one day with Brooke. She was so big and I said to her, "You're getting so big. I'm going to blink and you will be 15 years old!" So I grabbed a picture from that day and created a layout around it! I love layouts with just one picture! They are awesome!

Close up of the embellishments!


Today is the Day!

Today is the day that I get to see the new catalog! This year they started something new...if you place a demo order starting on June 1st they would put a single catalog in your box for you! And my box is coming today with all of my new goodies and the CATALOG! I am not allowed to post pictures of the catalog but if you have any questions about it, let me know and I will answer!

I recently found this card online. I thought it would be a really cute one to make. I am totally out of baby cards so I need to restock. And I also need to make some Thank You cards! What are you working on this week?

I'm going to try to be better about updating this blog! Scrapbook pages to come soon!
