We had a snow day yesterday, so Randy put up the tree and I decorated it. It is not the typical tree as I use purple and teal. I thought that I should wait to take a photo until the morning, but you can't really see how pretty it is all lit up during the day. The second is an ornament that I made. I make one every year. It has the year on it along with all the people living in our home.
Here are pages one and two of a Scrapping the Music challenge. This weeks song was by the Beatles called In My Life. These photos were from our very first New Year's Eve celebration at our brand new house. In the pocket, there is hidden journaling.
It is the before photo that I sent in for a Monday Morning Makeover on Channel 11 in Green Bay. The second layout will have my after shot on it. The tabs on the right side, next to the business cards, say what each person did for me. The owner was there, the gal who actually cut my hair, dyed it and even gave me eye brows. The make up artist who did my make up.
This layout was of photos taken while we were at the Pampered Chef convention. Jenni and I were standing next to the Twixit Clip dress. Look very closely at the bottom of her flapper dress. The other photo was after the banquet, all of our team memebers. The bottom ones are of Jenni and when she walked across the stage after becoming a Director- way to go Jenni, you are truely a star!
Here is my mother's day layout. Look at those shoes! My mother traded with a young man sitting at the table next to us. In the glass was peanut butter moose with some chocolate & peanut butter stick in it. It was so yummy! The last photo was of the family, minus my hubby who took the photo. Thanks honey
I have the most amazing roomie!!! Carol you really do rock!!! Even though she is off to the real convention, she made me this totally AWESOME gift box. She altered the metal box with ribbon, paper and chipboard. She also included a jar of candy. A make and take coaster project. A candle and some pretty postcards. Even some cute cards! Also an altered notebook and a 6x6 journal. I am shocked at my roomie's generous and thoughtful. I have never been so blessed. I have never had a better roomie than Carol. Thank you so much Carol! Carol have a great time at convention.
This is part of the gift I made for my VC Rocks roomie. I have never been to the Stampin' Up! convention, so I don't really know what to make. We did have some guidelines, something handmade, a make and take, and something tasty. Anyways, I made my roomie an altered small accordian folder. I stamped the front and attached the paper to the folder. Inside each pocket, I put different items. One was a couple of large paper clips and buttons for my roomie's make and take. I added some hand made cards. I also threw in some crystal light drink sticks. I know that my roomie likes chocolate, but after having grown up on the East Coast, which is where my roomie lives now, I know that all chocolate melts!!! Perhaps I can send her some chocolate during the winter!
Randy and I never went to get some dog food over the weekend. Randy swung by a pet store on the way home. He came home with this bag for our two large dogs... This bag is a mere 6 pounds. We usually get a 40 pound bag!!
Here are some photos that I took while doing Wii Fit. There is downhill skiing, and our scores. The hula hooping and scores. There is also a soccer photo. It was really difficult talking the photos while doing it!!!!!!!!!!
Here is the baby paint can I made for my friend Jenni. I totally forgot to include a notepad and pen... good thing I see her often, I will just make them and give them to her. Here is a close up of the shoes. Included in the can: blanket, shoes, wash cloths, spoons, toothbrush, grooming set(clippers, scissors,and file) sippy cups which I stamped with Stazon. I used Cuddles 'n' Tickles. I know this set is retired, but it just works so well with baby gifts. I put the Paint Can memory poem on the lid. I used Temp. Turquoise for the ink.
Here are Jessica, Jenni and I. Jessica and I held the shower for Jenni.
For Mother's day the family went to the Sea Bird at Blue Harbor for their Mother's Day buffet. They had a chocolate fountain! Let's see if I can recall what there was to eat. Cheese and crackers and bread. Salads, fresh cooked shrimp, and oysters on the half shell.
Made to order crepes. Hot foods: potatoes, french toast,sausage, prime rib, lamb, ravioli, and Belgium waffle. (Okay, so I forgot to write the menu down and now I can't recall everything!)
Desserts: too many to list. The photo below is what my uncle, grandmother, and I all had. It was peanut butter moose. My other uncle ate some banana dessert. I also had a decadent chocolate three layer cake. My aunt thinks that we ate at least one of everything but the lamb!
Here is a page that I did for my husband for Valentine's Day. I used Barely Banana, Rose and Regal Red, and Certainly Celery. I watercolored the hearts on the Barely Banana paper. The journaling is different words for loved ones. I used the thesaurus to look up the different words. I used the set Sweet Shapes.
Here is a layout that I did from my last birthday. I had to get some frogs on there as I love frogs and purple. The dogs in one of the photos is mine, Molly. The other one is Madison. My mother and I share the dogs, they are sisters. My grandmother is holding onto Madison, my mother's dog. I hope that some day my grandmother will smile more!!!
