For some reason it was hard to make myself share this layout. Although it makes me feel good knowing I impacted a family so much that they would write to the president of my hospital, it still embarrasses me.

To further embarrass me...they made me come to a Senior Management meeting for a presentation. They presented me with a big chocolate star, a pin and a framed certificate. The chocolate was thoroughly enjoyed :)


Inspired by another lovely Susan Stringfellow sketch.

So happy I could finally use this bright orange flower, it's such a cheery color!

Lots of new layouts to share from The ScrapRoom's Flavor of the Month Kit starting on Monday. Get ready for oodles of Christmas inspiration here and on the ScrapRoom Blog! Thanks for stopping :)

Welcome Home

I know...I should be saying "Welcome Back". I've been suffering from a bit of blog fatigue. Kinda like jet lag. You know how it goes...not enough hours in the day. Any hoo, I'm making this one short and sweet :) Sweet like my baby girl, only she's not a baby anymore!

More Dear Lizzy "5th & Frolic" from the Flavor of the Month Kit at The ScrapRoom.

The chip pieces are so versatile!

You can never have too many brads :)

I promise to be more attentive to my blog this month! Thank you to those who kept popping by to see if I'd posted any new tidbits :) Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!

Welcome... *The ScrapRoom*

home baby Mariel! Only 14 years later :P I started Mimi's baby album when I first began scrapbooking but quickly became sidetracked. It was hard to stay motivated with such a small selection of baby patterned papers. Over the years I've learned to adapt other collections for my needs. The Dear Lizzy "5th & Frolic" collection is a perfect example. Grey + bright pastels = baby!

Inspired by a Susan Stringfellow sketch.

The splatters remind me of confetti and add some softness.

Inked the edges of all the patterned papers.

Mimi's first nurse was one of my best friends, Brenda. Love the photo of Eric holding her for the first time. I was able to crop out most of the dark background.

Is this garland stinkin' cute or what!?

Love this "Polaroid" paper, perfect for journaling.

Some of the lovely chipboard included in the kit.

Pop on over to The ScrapRoom and look through the store, Tammy has past kits for sale and more!Then head on over to the blog for even more inspiration :)

123 U R Sweet as Can Be *The ScrapRoom*

Crate Paper "Acorn Avenue" has an eclectic mix of papers and embellishments, just right for everyday photos and Fall too! It can be found in the November Flavor of the Month" kit at The ScrapRoom. This line is one of the four different lines in her "Flavor of the Month" kits. Whenever I have a photo I love, I tend to make it the only photo on my layout and this one was no exception.

The number chipboard really caught my eye.

The Next Katniss  was created with Cosmo Cricket's "Smore's Love". I love it when I can use a themed line for a non themed layout :) The sweet little owl seemed appropriate along with the trees for an archery layout.

This layout is based on a sketch by and is part of The ScrapRoom's sketch challenge for the month.

The letter stickers aren't included but the chipboard leaves and trees are, and half of a chipboard sheet!

Stop on by The ScrapRoom to check out this months kit and the The ScrapRoom Blog for inspiration!

Work It! * The ScrapRoom* (Out for Publication)

I was giddy with excitement when I saw the November ScrapRoom Flavor of the Month kit! It was full of great new product like  Pebbles "Seen & Noted". Bright colors and fun patterns...right up my alley :) I love to take the icons in the paper and make my own embellishments, like these flowers.

Of course I had to use my Cricut :) Made these tags by cutting a regular sized tag apart and placing a piece on either side of the photostrip.

A few circle punches and a heart punch and voila...a cute flower!
The centers of the aqua flowers are from the sticker sheet included in the kit.

Basic Grey has the greatest little letter stickers, just the right size to create small batches of journaling.

Can't wait to use some more of this line to
create another layout and some cards. The sticker sheet has a few perfect sentiment stickers!
