Feisty & Fierce -- featuring Pink Paislee :)

Hi everyone! :)

I wanted to share a layout I made using the Pink Paislee "Wild Child" collection :)

If any of you have met Brookie, you will know -- this is her -- for reals! Her personality is one of the things I admire about her -- I never ask her to pose -- this is just what she does :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

One Little Word -- featuring Echo Park :)

Hi everyone! :)

I wanted to share my One Little Word (OLW) for this year -- the journaling says it all :)

I used Echo Park's "Everyday Eclectic" collection on my page -- along with the little OLW tag from Pretty Little Studios, tags from Simple Stories and Chic Tags  :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Howdy! -- featuring Scraps of Love stamps :)

Hi everyone! :)

This month while CHA was in town, I was lucky to meet a couple of bloggy friends for dinner :)

Cindy and I have met before at CHA in California, but this was this first time I met Sue (who was in town for Primaventures), and I wanted to give them both some little scrappy presents :)

So I made some quick Arizona tags (because that is where CHA  and Primaventures was this year!), using stamps that my LSS (Scraps Of Love) manufactured and were designed by one of their employees, Ann Corbiere-Scott :)

Loved seeing these girls while they were in town -- always fun to meet bloggy friends!! :) Brian and I had fun with both of them (long story short -- Brookie wanted to go both times, but when we met Sue, sadly Brookie had a HORRIBLE allergic reaction to something and had HIVES EVERYWHERE -- so she stayed home with my in-laws --- and when we met Cindy, she had volleyball practice) and hope to see them again!! :)

Here is me and Sue :)

And here is me and Cindy :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Timothy and Friends -- featuring Doodlebug Designs :)

Hi everyone! :)

I know a lot of people get creeped out by the Elf on the Shelf, but Brookie REALLY loves her -- and the rule in our house (well, not so much of a rule, rather than a request of our Elf Timothy!) is that he not MOVE from where he is hanging out until I can get a photo of him as every year I make a mini album for Brookie showing his fun times while he is here over the Christmas season! :)

This years album includes a Simple Stories SNAP! album, along with their inserts, Doodlebug Designs "Here Comes Santa Claus" collection, and stamps from Ellen Hutson, Neat & Tangled and Sugar Pea Designs :)

Two of the things I love about photographing Timothy is -- I don't have to worry about RED EYE in the photos, and I don't have to worry if he will smile or not! *wink* :) 

For this journal card, since Timothy decided to make a snow angel in the Splenda (*wink*) -- I used some Snow-tek on the card to mimic his snow angel :)

All the notes that Timothy left Brookie over the Holiday season are in this envelope :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
