Birthday Gift

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday! We had ice last night and we woke up to nothing but a sheet of ice.

This upcoming Saturday my husband and I have a surprise 40th birthday party to attend. Since I really don’t know the wife that well (I really only see her at gatherings) I decided that I would give her something that she can appreciate for many years. I did a layout of their recent wedding that she will be able to hang up in their new house.

To display the layout I bought a display case from Michaels. I do hope that she will enjoy this gift.

I used my July Swirlydoos Kit “Sweet Summer Serenity”

I hope everyone has had a relaxing Sunday so far today. I have been working so much lately I haven’t been able to get in too much scrapping but I was able to get in this layout of my little niece Emily.
I turned the picture black & white so it would not clash with the paper as she is wearing a very bright pink dress. I took this picture last summer during one of my photo shoots with my niece and nephew.

I used my August Swirlydoos Kit “Shabby Ambition”

Happy New Year!!

Hello All,
I can't believe we are already in 2011! I hope this year dosen't go by as fast as last year did.

I hope that everyone had a great Christmas and enjoyed quality time with loved ones may they be family or friends or both. I had a wonderful Christmas and got many new toys to play with. My husband did very good this year with a new point and shoot camera, an external flash for my digital SLR camera, a light tent for my layouts and my barbie doll!

How did you spend your New Year's Eve? My husband and I went over to my sister-in-law's and watched some movies and food!

Below are my final projects for 2010.

The first is a layout of my aunt standing by the Christmas tree on Thanksgiving day at her daughter's house. We usually have to snap pictures of my aunt while she is not aware we are doing it but this year she wanted holiday pictures so I had my little cousin take the pictures with my camera while I was enjoying dessert LOL!!!

I used my December Swirlydoo's kit "Divine Noel" to create these projects:
My next project is a card I don't make my own cards to send out each year but since I was using christmas paper I decided to whip up this cute little card. Maybe next Christmas I will not be so lazy and make my own but I doubt it and my job never permits at this time of year.
