I can't believe it's been a week since I updated. It's been a bit of an emotional roller coaster week here in the Stevens' household (isn't it always during the C-mas season??)!
AND why is it the people we love the most almost always annoy us the easiest?? ;) LOL.
BUT we had a banner Christmas here this year and I'm not talking about presents (although Santa left WAY more than we needed).
My Darling Little Man was INSANELY EXCITED about Jolly Ol' Saint Nick coming to our house this season and celebrated in full force the way only a 5 (and a HALF) year old can.
It was just so special just to watch him expereince it all.
Every year my scrappy friends re-visit some of their favorite work and I VOW I will get it together and do the same (but I NEVER do). So, if you don't mind seeing a few golden oldies from 2010- here we go!
Love this one for all the pattern paper in the background & really-
he's just TOO cute at 3 yrs old!
This iwas one of my fave Imaginisce lines.
I got creative and used my I-rock on the flowers as well.
**This one was actually accepted into the Memory Makers Idea book due out in May 2011 BUT
I forgot about the 'never posted before' requirement in the submission agreement.
It broke my heart to do so but I had to re-tract it :(.
This is one of my few, mushy I-love-you LOs about my hubby.
(LOVE this line from Pink Paislee too)
Another Imaginisce project using the Enchanted line.
Could have eaten this with a spoon.
Sorry for the foot pic-I LOVED this pattern on my toes & the LO came together
so well! I normally wouldn't choose this color combo but LOVE it!
An assignment for Scrap Yourself. I just loved ALL of it here-the clouds, die cut paper,
little owl & those FAB fabric letters from Prima-even my handwriting didn't come out too badly :).
This was a LO I used in my application for My Little Shoebox.
This was a second attempt-I tore the first one apart (yeah-I do that-ALOT).
This was one of my first assignments for MLS.
I just ADORED these papers and the pic of my LM with his little buddy is a FAVE of mine.
Also part of my app for MLS.
Can you tell I was <3-ING banners this year? :)
This was a DT project for Momenta and my awesome friends let me use a picture of their little princess for it.
Thanks Mr & Mrs M! :) HUGS!
This is a HORRIBLE pic of my LO but still one of my faves (& and much nicer IRL)
I scrapped this pic before (it's of me & my little sis as kids) but I made this copy to frame.
My little Man's first day of school-another HUGE milestone.
I bought these supplies at a crop and just used them.
It was so much fun to pick any supplies that I wanted and just 'go' with it. :)
This is mostly MLS but I added a few other goodies to it.
The brown background paper is actually a very old pattern (LYB-maybe?)
It has a floral pattern on one side but since I knew I wasn't going to use it at this point,
I just flipped it for a bonus piece of brown cardstock (instead of passing it on like I normally would).
I just loved the pics of my little guy during the last few weeks of this summer.
This post included WAY more pics than I intended, so if you are still with me-
I had a REALLY hard time whittling my faves down to only a few.
I guess when you work with product that you love, you make LOs that you love just as much.
Alot of these are DT work, so I will say HERE another huge
THANK YOU to these wonderful ladies for having me on their design teams this year.
