A proud Mama!

It seems like forever since I blogged but we are finally back from our vacation well rested and ready to tackle the last week of craziness before Santa arrives.  I was so excited to find THIS in stores around Denver!! Whoot whoot. This is my very own issue of Scrapbooking & Beyond which features may layout of my oldest daughter on the cover!  We both just stood and beamed at the display stand for awhile before snatching up 5 copies (the grandparents, aunties and uncles all want one).  I will go back and get more but there was only 1 copy left and I thought it kinda defeats the object of your child being on the cover and no one else gets to purchase a copy *lol*.  I was pleasantly surprised to see another layout of mine inside this issue too..the little one is a little perturbed that she is not featured but I made up for it with a ice-cream cone treat (yes it is that warm in Colorado - East of the Mountains) and a promise that Mommy will do more layouts with her pictures in the future ;)

This is a project I made for Spellbinders a while back.  I wrapped a kraft box and then created these 3D snowflake embellishments for fun.  I think they would look quite grand scattered on a table or mantel.  Instructions for this project can be found here: Spellbinders: Sweet Holidays Box

I hope you are all having fun this week and that sweet Holiday karma follows you wherever you may go.

I know it seems like I have been missing in action for the past 2 weeks, and for the most part that is true!  We are enjoying a family vacation in Hawaii and still have another week left in paradise. This picture was taken of the girls at the Hilton pool - we had just seen the sweetest dolphin show including a glimpse of the newest addition to the Dolphin family - a little baby just 4 months old!

I do have a card to share with you today.  I made this Christmas card using Spellbinders Impressabilities I2-1006 Floral and Stone.  Simply cut a portion of your Impressabilites using sharp scissors.  I used clear adhesives on a few of the metal accents and adhered it to the red circle (Spellbinders Standard Circles Lg S4-114). The ornament is formed by mounting the circle onto an octagon shape cut from Spellbinders S4-187.  The sentiment is a rub-on and the little string is just hand drawn with marker!

I hope you are having a wonderful week getting ready for the Holidays. See you soon
