A new post! Sorry to those who've been checking for new & exciting things to appear :)

I finally have a new layout to share. Everytime I see these photos, I smile.  Matthew wouldn't climb into Santa's lap until he had that little pack of cookies in his hands...never mind that they were being handed out at the end of the line. He wasn't going anywhere until he had his cookies :}} Isn't it funny how some personality traits follow us to adulthood ,teenagehood in his case.

The background is misted over a mask I pieced from a lace diecut by Anna Griffin. I love how it created a spot for the title. The sparkly steam was created by cutting vellum on the cricut and then (without removing the diecut from the cutting mat) covering with dry adhesive and glitter. Carefully peel and voila! If you use liquid adhesive on vellum it will curl up pronto and is nearly impossible to uncurl! (life/vellum lesson #1)

Sorry for the teaser...had to remove :)

The cup came from the "Joys of the Season" cartridge and is popped with foam dots. The chocolate chip cookies and gingerbread boy are created with the "From My Kitchen" cartridge. I couldn't find a plate by itself so I used the slice of cake icon and cut the cake off the plate!

Supply List for Cookies for Matthew:
Cardstock: Die Cuts With A View; diecut patterned paper: Jenny Bowlin Studio, Anna griffin; patterned paper: K&Co.; letter stickers: American Crafts, Artic Frog, October Afternoon; chipboard stickers: Basic Grey; gems, glitter dots & pearls: Recollections; spray ink: Smooch, Clearsnap; marker: Marvy Le Plume II, Sakura, Sharpie; diecuts: Cricut, Provo Craft (Joys of the Season, From My Kitchen, Storybook, Straight from the Nest cartridges); glitter: Jo Ann Crafts; misc: floss, vellum.

I'm also thrilled to say that The Big Book of Scrapbook Ideas is out in the stores and I'm a contributing artist *insert happy dance*. Look for 4 layouts from little ole me! There is so much talent and inspiration in this book, you will be amazed!
