Advent Calendar!

I've always wanted to buy or make one of these.  A friend was setting out FIVE of them the other day and inspired me to get this one done from last year.  I'd had the naked box since then, but never wanted to tackle it.  Don't know whether to be ashamed that I had all of this stuff on hand, or proud that I didn't have to buy anything but the ornament on top to make it :)




Most days are gum or candy.

Some days are little pieces of paper to Matt, Sara and Emily to go on a treasure hunt somewhere in the house to find a little gift too big for the box.  It's been fun!  Leave links to your advent calendars if you have one - would love to see!  Melissa

Oh, I love the new Sn@p collection.  Got another bit of it on my doorstep today and didn't take long to squirt out a layout.  Super simple.  There's so much cute stuff to put on there, I want to try and keep it simple and not make a "Snap Sneeze" like a sticker sneeze!  Have a great Saturday.





**The layout is out for now!**

Two Peas was kind enough to send the Vintage Finds collection from Teresa Collins from a contest.  Couldn't wait to play with it!  The album cover says, "Make Good Things Happen".  My girls do volunteer work at various places and will be perfect to have an album documenting some of the things they do as they are volunteering with kids and dogs and all kinds of things!  Thanks Two Peas!

Another Teresa Collins Tell Your Story layout...

A fun one with the big fussy-cut flowers :)  Used a little Vintage Finds washi and diecut - the rest is Tell Your Story

Teresa Collins' New Collection

I hadn't scrapped most of the beach trip photos, but when I saw this collection, it was perfect to use with the pictures.  "Tell Your Story" from Teresa Collins...so pretty!

By the Sea...


Finally getting around to scrapping some pictures from a weekend at the coast last summer.  Had the best time with lots of family.  Had a great time last night meeting new ladies at a crop at a new scrap store in town last night!

Color Challenge from Birds of a Feather



Peek at a color challenge from Birds of a Feather - was nice just to pull out some old photos and get them done for fun.

Just adding in some old layouts I came across.  Love the papers and colors on SeaWorld, blue, brown, green, magenta thrown in - yum! Rhett from TwoPeas is where this layout inspiration came from.  Can't find her anymore :(

This is a paper layout where I printed Matt's face onto a transparency and layered with patriotic papers.  Not sure why it scanned crooked or at an angle at the bottom.  Oh well, you get the idea!



Little Emily.  When she was born, she was so tiny at two pounds that her hinney was the size of a quarter.  The nurse had us take this picture and I remember being so worried about her, didn't feel like doing anything funny with her - it was serious business.  Now I'm glad the nurse had confidence that she would be fine and took these :)

Sara and Em ... and Sadie :)
