Ready for Class

This week is workshop week. I have three class times- Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6:30-9:30.  I love this week because I get to spend time with my friends and fellow scrapbookers doing something I am passionate about. One of the reasons we moved into a bigger house was to also provide me with a room to host my classes in. Over the last 8 months I have painted and decorated this room to encourage creativity and although I still need to finish painting the closet doors and redo the floor I love how this room is coming together. (Karen- do you love the card on the far right shelf?)

This is the newest decor addition to the room. Look Lynette you made the wall! (center row bottom picture). All of these pictures bring a smile to my face.

One of my favorite themes for my scrapbook pages- Sweet Allie!

January Workshop Group

Did you think I had fallen off the face of the earth? Well I am back!!! I actually have been busy as a bee cutting, sponging and using some very fun new products and papers from the new Spring Idea Book.  It has been so much fun! My pictures finally came and now I am ready to show off my work. Do keep checking back to see more fun layouts.

For today I would like to post the January workshop layouts.  It is not too late to sign up for this class. Email or call me today if you are interested in joining the fun and create these 3 beautiful layouts. This month I am using the Veranda paper packet found on page 10 of the new Spring Idea Book.


I used the following products: Veranda basic kit which includes the Veranda level 2 paper packet, Filigree Charms, exclusive "Follow Your Heart" stamp set and a workshop guide. For the finishing touches I added Just Blooms from the Spring Blossoms collection and accents from the mini-medley Antiqued Copper collection.  I stamped the title on the first layout with cocoa ink and the Chocolate Alphabet- large stamp set.

Allie's 6 Month Photo Shoot - I Need Your Help!!

I can hardly believe my baby is 6 months old. She is getting her personality and is much more interactive and fun. My friend Kassandra Namba came an took her pictures for me. You might remember me mentioning Kassandra, she took our family pictures the end of the summer. She does great work and comes right to your house to take the photos. It is so much more relaxing and enjoyable then going to a studio.  She is also very reasonably priced!!!! So this is what I need from you: If you will go to the following link Allie's Photo Shoot check out the other photos from Allie's photo shoot and leave a comment you can help me earn a free 8x10.  I need 15 comments! Thanks!!!

Allie also had her 6 month check up last week. Here are her stats and a little bit about her development:

Weight: 16 pound 2.5 ounces 55 percentile
Height: 26 1/4 inch 75 percentile
She rolled over for the first time on New Year's Day and she pulled her knees under her on Christmas day.  While on her belly Allie usually moves in a circle or backwards.  She sleeps for an average of 11 1/2-12 hours straight each night and usually takes one 2-3 hour nap in the early afternoon.  We have started solids but only rice and oatmeal.  Allie is a happy baby who only cries when she is hungry or tired. She is sitting up but needs to be spotted because she easily looses her balance. She is babbling and blowing raspberries and is fascinated with her hands but her absolute favorite thing to do and watch her big sisters and brother play. She has started a new habit of growling at me while she is nursing.  She use to be such a quiet eater and now it is almost embarrassing. Allie is a joy and I am looking forward to enjoying every new moment in her life.

Thanks again for helping me earn a free 8x10!
