Reunion Blog Hop

Welcome to Club Scrap's Reunion Blog hop! If this is your first stop, you might want to go back to the beginning and see the list of all the participants. You won't want to miss any of them.

I only have 2 layouts to share with you today. This month is the most busy month of the year for me. I haven't really had any time to call my own.

This first layout uses a template that I had in my stash of digital goodies. It is by Jumpstart Designs. But everything used is from the Reunion digital kit by Club Scrap. Their digital kits always come with a nice number of overlays which I love to use to make new background papers.

This next layout, I layered several papers, added a border strip, used a photo mask and a couple of overlays. One of the overlays is from my stash and the other one is a script overlay from Club Scrap's Fossils Classic digital kit.

Thank you for looking! Your next stop on the way is Debby.

Sharing a layout today of some cold weather we had in 2013. We don't get a lot of snow as a rule. Some years we get a lot but mostly just a dusting. But this particular month and year we got snow and then a week later had days of hoarfrost. Very beautiful... but oh was it cold.

For this layout I used a template from Imagination Vol 2 by PrelestnayaP Designs and Frostbite kit by Dawn Inskip. I thought they were perfect for the topic.

Thank you for looking. I'm sure that I won't be posting again until after Christmas. So I pray that you have a wonderful Celebration.

July Project 365

I'm starting to work on these pages again. I'm not sure why I can keep up until summer and then quit. I have a couple of years like that. I'm going to have to go back and finish them up. I think I have 3 years done and 3 years to finish up. Almost there!

Everything on these layouts is from Weeds & Wildflowers. Some of the elements are from old Project 365 kits. Most of it is from the Discover Collection.

Christmas Flowers

I am always amazed at how many pictures I haven't had the time to scrap. I'm just about done with photos that have been printed, but not the digital photos that are still waiting to go to the printers and of course every day I end up having more. I've been doing book work most of the day and needed a break so I decided to pull out another kit that I haven't used yet.

Today's layout is from 2011. I love taking photos of flowers and it makes me happy to see flowers at Christmas. I used Letter To the Winter kit by Tiramisu Designs and a template from Blended Memories 1 by Studio Rosey Posey.

Thanks for looking! I would love to hear comments from you.

dish rags

Here is a picture of some of the dish rags that I've crocheted lately. These too will be stocking stuffers. I love using my homemade dish rags. They're thicker, wash things up faster since they're larger than the ones you find in the store and they last longer too. These were made using Lyon brand crochet cotton and the patterns were ones that I found years ago for free on the internet. Any worsted weight crochet cotton would work.

 Thanks for looking!

Here is a picture of a few of the ornaments that I made for Christmas stockings for this year. They're all clear glass beaded snowflakes, but each one is different. They're about 4 1/2 inches across and it took more beads than I thought it would. I had a lot of fun making these. For now they're hanging from my chandelier. Once the kids start coming home I'll put them with my stash of stocking stuffers.

Happy Days

Another new layout. Everyone else was watching a movie, so I played on the computer and got another Autumn kit used. Everything is from True Blessing by Scrap Girls from last month's Daily Digi pack except the bird house, owl and ticket are from several Autumn kits by Studio Natali and a button from We All Fall Down kit by Allison Pennington. I used a template from As Long As I Live 3 by fiddle-dee-dee designs.

Thank you for looking!

Cousin Love

I got a little bit of time to play on my computer today. Between making gifts, Christmas baking and daily chores I'm very busy and don't have a lot of time to be on the computer. Some days it doesn't even get turned on.

Today's layout uses a kit made by Scrap Orchard called Love Lives Here that you can find in December's Daily Digi. They haven't revealed any of the kits yet on the web site but they'll start soon. The template is by fiddle-dee-dee designs from her Big Hugs set.
