Scrapping again!!


Well, it's been two weeks since I was able to reclaim the dining room as my scrapping room and I've scrapped a whole ... wait for it ... 2 layouts!!! Yikes! With an output like that I'll probably finish Marley's baby album by the time she retires!!! Getting back into the swing of things after the Christmas holiday hasn't left much "play" time for me. Boo hoo! I've signed up for an all day crop in February so hopefully I can get caught up then. Or by then ... or something!!

Anyway, without further ado, here are my two new LO's. My Aunt had included a photo collage with her Christmas letter this year and it gave me the inspiration to play with the collage function in Picasa. I created a bunch of collages which I hope to scrap soon - these are the first 2. This December (2009) we had lovely cold temperatures with gorgeous sunshine but no snow. I wasn't complaining but the girls were! December of 2008 we had record snowfalls around here and there were quite a few tears this year that they couldn't go tobogganing over the holiday. Mostly on Marley's part! I created one collage of Paige playing in the backyard and another of Marley making snow angels in the backyard and scrapped them both.

Here's Paige - the photo of her asleep in her car seat was to remember how she was when we went tobogganing! NOT in love with the cold, deep snow at all!!!


 Here are some close ups of the details:













I found this pom-pom ribbon and applied some of it along a narrow blue ribbon at the botttom of the LO and cut off the individual pom-poms and glued them onto the tree. I like how it turned out. Gives it some great texture! Below is the collage of Paige.




And here is the LO of Marley's Snow Angels. The pink polka dot paper is from a pack I won in a RAK from Deanne (thanks!!) which is not wintery or Christmassy at all but worked for this LO really well.  The snowflakes are acrylic ones from MAMBI that I thought were stickers but weren't so now I'm just hoping and praying that the glue holds. I've already had to re-glue a few so .... fingers crossed they stick this time!

And the collage of Marley ...



Well, there you go.
Today I am thankful for ...
... my Wii Fit and time to use it ...
... a nice warm dry van to take Marley to school in (even though it's only a few blocks away) when the winds blow and the rains pound down!...
... McDonald's drive thru (because I didn't feel like making lunch today).
