This is my latest project for Use Your Stuff using the following sketch from my former design team 2 Broke Girls Challenges. This week's theme is "Christmas is Coming." I have always wanted to use this baby picture of my daughter, and I thought this project would be perfect to showcase this portrait. On my daughter's first Christmas, she was teething. She had her two incisors and her two bottom teeth, but her two front teeth were no where to be found. She would smile this big toothy, vampire grin, and I was just smitten with her cuteness. So I decided to use the lyrics of the Christmas song, "All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth" as the title. In addition, I used a variety of papers from Doodlebug Design's "Here Comes Santa Claus" collection to pull this project together.

Let's Scrap using the following sketch. One of the greatest road trips my family and I ever took was to "A Christmas Story" House in Cleveland, Ohio. We love Ralphie and quote this movie throughout the year. So I decided that for this sketch, I would feature some of my favorite pictures from the trip. To pull the project together, I used a variety of papers from Carta Bella's "A Very Merry Christmas" line.

There is nothing scarier than putting yourself out there. My family has learned this lesson on more than one occasion this year. I have always admired my daughters for their ability to try out for different competitive sports. Sometimes it works out for them, this year it did not for my oldest daughter. I've told my girls on multiple occasions that they are the strongest, bravest people I know for being willing to put their abilities on the line. In the spirit of my children, I decided to put myself out there again in the scrapbook world. My former design team "The Memory Nest" is currently on a hiatus, and I knew I would miss being part of this community. Each DT has their own personality, and The Memory Nest always pushed my creative skills to the limit. So I decided to put my name and abilities out there again and see if I could possibly join another design team. CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration is currently holding a DT call, & this was my submission using the following guidelines. Since the colors required for the layout and theme indicated "fall," I decided to feature some of my favorite fall pictures I took of my brave girls at Niagara Falls, NY a few years ago. To pull this project together, I used a variety of papers from Carta Bella's "Autumn Collection" line.

This is my latest project for Sketches in Thyme using the following sketch. This is going live right before one of my favorite days of the year...Black Friday! I will admit, I'm one of the people who helps stimulate the economy on Thanksgiving night. Perhaps it's because my husband is a firefighter/paramedic. Holidays are special, but my girls and I have grown accustomed to making the most of days when he is gone. So my oldest and I have started the tradition of standing in line at Target to be one of the first ones in the door for the Black Friday sales. Is there anything we want in particular? Not really. We just enjoy the excitement and time together. To pull this project together, I used a variety of papers from PhotoPlay's "Mad 4 Plaid Christmas Collection" and Carta Bella's "Christmas Delivery"

This is my latest project for Let's Scrap using the following sketch. Being the seasonal scrapbooker that I am, I decided to say good-bye to my favorite patterned paper season by featuring pictures of my girls this past Halloween. I have absolutely adored all the papers in the Pebbles, Inc. line this year. While I followed the sketch, rather than use all the pictures the layout called for, I decided to focus more on the papers and the embellishments.
