Mini tin albums

I made these for a gal who was wanting to buy mini albums for her daughter in-laws for Christmas. I was a little nervous as I don't consider myself a very advanced scrapbooker, but she loved them! YEAH!!!

I just love Bo Bunny's Beautiful Life collection. It is sssooo yummy! Check out their blog and see all of the beautiful creations they did with this line: . I personally love the candle holder idea at the end of the post and may just have to scraplift it sometime!

I'd like to pass it on:
(lol...I'm not sure who reads my blog....but know you girls do and I love reading your blogs!)

Madagascar 2 & Beavers!

Saturday Chris and I took Peyton to see Madagascar 2. It was very cute. He did great and was too in awe to eat any popcorn til almost 3/4 through the movie when he decided he was ready to go home. But that huge tub of popcorn kept him there through the end! We went over to a friends to watch the OSU game! GO BEAVS! We barely pulled it off, but we won! YEAH!!!! Peyton had a ton of fun playing with the other two little boys that were there.

I was able to finish a few projects this weekend. A couple I want to share, but have to wait til after Christmas as they are Christmas gifts. I do have a few mini albums I plan to take pictures of and share later today or tomorrow though!

Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Friday already?

Wow, this week went fairly fast! Can't believe Thanksgiving is next week! Christmas is just around the corner! Although I have been working on Christmas presents for over a month I still feel a push to hurry up. I did get my dads bought though and he is usually the hardest!

We are thinking about taking Peyton to see Madagascar 2 tomorrow. He did really well when we took him to see Kungfu Panda.

I've been working on a couple projects for gift and a couple mini albums I was asked to make. They are on my to-do list this weekend. I'd really like to get them finished.

I'm 24 Weeks!

Yeah! Six months along today! Had another check up today. It went okay. The doctor who did my surgery in Portland still hadn't sent the reports to my doctor (its been 11 weeks!!!!), even after two requests for them. But my doctor finally got ahold of the surgeon and called me this afternoon asking that I come back in next week and once the following two weeks. So lots of trips to Redmond and the doctor in my near future. Since I'm 24 weeks it's time for another belly shot and boy does it make me look huge!

Chris is back from elk hunting! They hunted a new area this year with not much luck. They saw quite a few cows but no bulls.

I found out recently that a friend from college lost her mother (her mother was pretty young). I can't even begin to imagine what she is going through and how hard it would be to lose your mom. I wanted to do something special but wasn't sure what to do, a card just didn't seem like the right thing to send. I came across this poem and ornament in a magazine and here is what I came up with:

The Poem Reads:
Merry Christmas From Heaven
I still hear the songs,
I still see the lights
I still feel your love on cold wintery nights
I still share your hopes and all of your cares
I'll even remind you to please say your prayers
I just want to tell you, you still make me proud
You stand head and shoulders above all the crowd
Keep trying each moment, to stay in His grace
I came here before you to help set your place
You don't have to be perfeect all the time
He forgives you the slip, if you continue the climb
To my family and friends,
Please be thankful today
I'm still close beside you,
in a new special way
I love you all dearly,
Now don't shed a tear
Cause I'm spending my
Christmas with Jesus this year.
Ornament reads:
I love you all dearly,
Now don't shed a tear,
I'm spending my Christmas
With Jesus this year.

Buck'n Deer Mommy!

Sedona was barking at something but I didn't give it much thought til I happened to glance out the window and see a buck rubbing his antlers against our tree. Happened to by my favorite tree too, can't have that! I just love how Peyton says 'Buck'n Deer mommy' so I hollered at him to come and look. He said "Papa got buck'n deer already'. He cracks me up how much he understands these days. The picture of Sedona just staring at the deer cracks me up. So much for the thought that she would keep the deer away from our trees and garden!

New Layouts

Here are a few layouts I was able to create yesterday and today!

I used a sketch on this one for a challenge at the Scrap 4 Life Crop.

Just a simple layout of a couple of my favorite pics of Peyton.

Isn't the Bo Bunny Paper yummy?

Scrappy time!

Since a couple of my friends and I weren't able to come up with a full weekend to have a scrapbook getaway, they are coming over tomorrow to scrap. Mom is watching Peyton for me. I can't wait! Scrap 4 Life is also have a crop this weekend (perfect timing!!!). I've been able to finish a couple layouts and a card for that today. Here is the card that I actually kinda like (doesn't happen that often with cards). If you have some time you should join in the crop! They are a lot of fun and there are always great prizes!

How sweet!

Chris surprised me this afternoon by walking through the door with a box of long stemmed roses and a Dairy Queen Chocolate Extreme Icecream cake (my absolute favorite!!!!)! How sweet is he! Sunday will be our 6th Anniversary and he will be out hunting. What did I get him..... a nice card. Now I'm feeling pretty bad. May have to come up with something extra special to make up for it!

I don't do the flowers justice in this picture, or the cake really. Mom and I are going to a craft show tomorrow night and when she picks me up she'll get the roses looking fabulous for me!

Won, Stories & More!

I am so excited! I won an assortment of Rusty Pickle Buttons off of their blog! I've been running low on them and lacking colors I want so can't wait to get the little package from them to see what ones I got!

I took Peyton to his first Story & Music time at the library today! It went well and was kinda fun! I'm hoping to take him back every week. They sang a little song, read two book and sang another song. Then afterwards the kiddos got to color. Peyton said he wanted to give his picture to Grandpa DuuuuuPont. So we stopped by Grandpas work and gave him the coloring.

I made a layout yesterday using OLD OLD OLD pictures. They were square, does that help emphasize how old they are? lol...They were of Josh and I having a lemonade stand. This brought back so many memories. I am pretty sure that it had to be when we were still living in the apartment basement so I am guessing I was inbetween 5 and 7.
