First Easter

These were pictures we had done of Little Man in Spring of 2006.
It know has dawned on me as I am writing this post, that this was probably his SECOND Easter.
OOPS. I may have to change the title.
 



Thanks for looking.

Blue Jean Baby

I have a LOT of 12x12 LOs and albums that I just don't have the room to store, so I am doing my little guy's albums over in an 8.5x11 format. Some of the left over pictures from the album will go into a project life format album in the end. I need to get these albums under control because I have far too many. These pictures are for the 2006 album (Awww - look at how little he is!!). 
 
Supplies: White Bazzill cardstock, pre-stitched paper from We R Memory Keepers, Tags/pie-chart are Basic Grey & American Crafts, Foam Thickers are American Crafts,  Denim Outfit Sticker is Jolie's ;) Mister Huey's mist in Heirloom Blue, Tiny staples, Buttons & twine.


I had originally left this area free of embellishments but then it just looked naked to me, so I punched out some stars in the same paper and added them to my LO. I do this type of tone on tone embellishment to my pages a LOT. It fills up the page without making it look too fussy.

 
Thanks for stopping by.

It's been too long.

WOW.
It's been too long since I scrapped/blogged. I didn't want to do either of these things for the longest time - I finished up some design teams in Dec./13 and then I. just. stopped. I didn't want to scrap at all anymore. But recently I started to miss it. Well, the scrapping part at least. And then I was overwhelmed at the thought of  making a page. Would I remember how? Would I like what I made?
I started out easy, white background, MME die cuts/stickers, Bella Blvd. alphas, SC mists and my ever faithful buttons, doilies and embroidery floss.

I hate writing (I am quite horrible at it). So I have decided that I will keep my blog open but will make my blog posts predominantly pictures only. If anyone still comes here that is. If you do stop by, thank you. I TRULY appreciate the visit.




 
Hugs, Cin :)

Top 13 of 2013

WOW.
I had GRAND plans about blogging last month and then I blinked and the month was GONE.
How did THAT happen?
I also had grand plans about my top 10 post.
And here it is the 16th of January. YIKES.
Better late than never, right?
These are my fave LOs and projects from 2013.
 
*Most were DT work for Hip Kit Club or Ruby Rock-it.
 








 
I also have a few non scrappy projects that I liked.
2013 was the year I started to like some of the cards I made.
Imagine! :)


 
This doily wreath got a lot of great feedback on Shimelle.com and then went on to be printed in the inaugural issue of Made In Paper.

Oh What Fun!

Today I have another LO from the November Hip kit.
I really like how the red and green washi tape  draw your eye down the side of the page.
Lots of white space, this is a bit on the simpler side but I still LOVE how it turned out.
 




Doily cut out from Vellum sheet in kit.

Hello Santa

We went to check out the new Target store last week and happened to run into this fella at the mall.
There wasn't a huge line up and Little Man was keen on giving him his list.
This might be the first picture in EIGHT years where my child is smiling and not trying to jump off the nice man's lap. SCORE!! Definitely worth the $11 we shelled out for 2 4x6's ;)
 

Sometimes these chipboard letters don't stay put oncve they go into my albums, so I like to 'make sure' by adding some stitching - especially when I overlap them as I have here.



 
Thanks for stopping by today!
I am off to deck the halls with my munchkin.
