Jillibean Flutterbys

"When in doubt choose kraft"

Sometimes you just need some butterflies in your life. They encourage you to change and to grow. That is what my mom and sister do. I love this photo of the 3 of us, together at Thanksgiving. Check off another one done for 2008-2009. I hand painted all the butterflies and just had to add a little glitter. Thanks for looking.

The Key to Success

"If you start behind you'll never get ahead."
Have you ever had a goal you never thought you would complete? We all start out wanting to scrapbook every photo we take. I have discovered that in my world this will never happen.

This week was my DS's grade 8 graduation. I thought I might share a layout of his first day of grade 8, September 2, 2008. Thanks for looking and tell me what you think.

My Sunshine

How I love to add flowers to my pages. This is a layout of my DD. I love these photos even if they are a couple of years old. I blanket stitched the brown cardstock and did a plain running stitch around the flower. I inked everything - of course. The buttons are all stitched on too.
Thanks for looking & let me know what you think.

Chocolate Chip

We have discovered a new friendly little family member...

Living in a hole in the front porch...

Introducing "Chocolate Chip" ~ Chip is going to provide LOTS of great photos for layouts - maybe even a mini-book.

My daughter & I spent a beautiful, first day of summer laying on the front porch, waiting for Chip to appear (which he did repeatedly). Both of us with cameras, so we got lots of beautiful pics of him. Even though Chip would run off , he would always come back with his little cheeks full. My daughter finially decided that he would be more interesting eating our peanuts. He was a little pig. We are going to have fun watching him all summer. By the way ~ Chip is driving the Cat crazy.

Piggytail Princess

So here it is ~ My first real BLOG POST!!!

I have to admit I am still not sure about this blogging thing. I think posting every few days is a good idea and we will go from there.
This is a layout made with scraps and bits from my stash. The paper is left over pieces from a class I taught last year called "A Whole lotta Hoopla" (image below) for All About Scrapbooks & More.

I really did not have a lot left ~ but I hate leftovers. Anyhow isn't my niece cute? Here she is playing with her dolly. I love using flowers as an accent so you will see a lot of them on my "girly" pages.

Thanks for looking and please tell me what you think.

Product list: We R Memory Keepers - Hoopla Paper line, American Crafts - Thickers & Ribbon, October Afternoon - Ducks in a Row Journaling sticker,Bazzill Cardstock, Flowers by Petaloo, Heidi Swapp & Prima, Jewels - Kaiser, & Brads & silver embellies - unknown.
