So for the past two weeks or so I have had a scrapbooking block. Terrible is the only to describe it. I get such joy out of coming into my scrapbook room and creating layouts. I would walk in, look around and feel nothing. Well I ordered some products from my favorite on line scrapbook store, Memorable Seasons, they came and as I was putting them away I started feeling better.

So I am still dealing with our wonderful dog passing. Up until now I have not been able to talk about it, it was just to painful. I know it may seem strange to be so attached to an animal, but Pita was an amazing dog. My husband had her for about 2 years before we got married. She was a part of my life for 10 years. When our son started school it was just me and Pita and she became my shadow.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I am so excited that the holidays are here, cool weather, fires and lots of baking. I was in my scrapbook room several days ago and I created this Christmas layout. I listed this on ebay, if it doesn't sell then I will keep it for myself. Nothing seems to be selling on ebay right now. I guess everyone is busy with all the holidays.

Hi there! I have some not so new layouts to post. I am starting to feel better about Pita's passing, so I thought I would post my layouts. These three layouts where so fun to create because they turned out completely different than what I had planned, I love that! The first layout titled dreamer was created with some yummy papers. The balloon paper is Websters pages, the others are My Minds Eye. The flowers were all hand made. The title and butterflies were glittered by taking a foam brush and glue and brushing evenly over each piece and sprinkling glitter over them. I learned that trick from Martha Stewart. The other two layouts were created with My Minds Eye Bella Bella line. I love these papers! The butterflies on the layout titled That Face I printed them out and used the foam brush/glue/glitter technique. I used Martha Stewart frost glitter. That is about all for now! Thanks for stopping by.

I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay
Her gentle head upon my knee
And shared her silent thoughts with me.
She’ll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more her favourite ball
A voice far greater than my own
Has called her to his golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears
I thank him for the happy years
He let her spend down here with me
And for her love and loyalty.
When it is time for me to go
And join her there, this much I know
I shall not fear the transient dark
For she will greet me with a bark.

Finished another layout today. I am not sure if I want to list this on ebay. Spent a long time on this one. I LOVE the way it turned out. This is a picture of my mom when she was about 6 or 7. You can still see the tape that held it in the original book at the top of the picture.

This is what inspired the Berry Sweet phase that I am going through right now. I can't get enough of making girl pages and albums. I spent about two weeks making the album. I am listing this on ebay this weekend. Along with the Berry Sweet page. I used so many elements making this album. On the cover is a chipboard dress form that I painted, added some cream colored tulle, rhinestones and ribbon. Of course lots of sparkle and flowers:)

Our weekend started off really nice. Ethan went to THe Family Marital Arts Center last night for a party. Peter and I stayed home and ate pizza (which I am paying for now) and we watched a really cute movie called New in Town. The coolest part was that the local woman in town are scrappers!!! Today my mom and I are going to Michaels and Joanns. Peter is staying home and deep cleaning the rugs.

This layout was fun, but it took a long time. I wanted to create something fun with some pop. I think I got it! I hand punched all of the butterflies, there are over 60. I added diamond stickle to all of them. The tag and word adore was cut with my Cricut.

This was my first attempt at tea staining and water distressing. I LOVE using Graphic 45 papers on this layout. I also went to a used book store (could have spent days there) and bought some used childrens books. My son asked me "can we get lost in here" and I said "I would love to get lost in here" Anyway, I found some pages in the book that fit the style of my layout. Tore them out and used the tea staining technique. I think they turned out pretty good. I also used my Cricut to cut out the little tea set.

Oh WOW where do the time go? I have been so busy with life and all the goodies that it brings. I did get some time over the Summer to create some wonderful pages. I went out on a limb and created a bright and colorful layout to sell on ebay. This took me a couple of days to get it just right.
