Happy Hump day

Happy Wednesday! We are halfway to the weekend!!! Yeah!! Not sure about where you are but here in Maine it is lightly snowing - with no accumulation - and cold! I don't really mind winter but I hate being cold. There is only so many layers you can put on before you become the stay puff marshmallow man. :)
Today - I am going to share a few more pictures from the album I made for my mom-in-law for Christmas. This was a 60 minute scrapbook kit and it was fast and fun!

All the pieces came with the kit so I had to add NOTHING!!! It was great! Some of the layout designs I rotated or positioned things differently but it was all inclusive scrapping! Doesn't get much easier than that!
I have to remember to get some pics off my laptop at home to share with you this week!
Thanks for popping in!

Happy New Year????

Boy time flies!!! Last time I was here it was still December. Now it is halfway through January. Wow!!! I hope you all survived New Year's. It was pretty uneventful in our house!
We have had 1 major snowstorm already in 2011 and it is snowing hard as I type, with another storm on the way for Friday. Looks like Maine will actually have a winter this year!
Well, amidst all my hustle and bustle.... I have actually been doing something scrap related!

First I want to share the pictures of my new scrap area. I am still tweeking things but if you remember my before pictures - this is a much needed improvement!! Here ya go:

Well, what do you think? Drop me a note and let me know!
And - believe it or not ..... I have scrapped 2 - 2page layouts!! Wowwie!!!
I will share one today and the other later this week!
This one is the first day my daughter attended a gymnastics class. Take a peek:

For supplies - I used plain dark blue cs and the patterned paper is one that had gymnastics written all over it on one side and words relating to gym on the other (sorry cannot remember the brand). I also had some neat gym stickers that I used as accents. On the right hand layout - I added my journaling under the bottom right picture with a slider piece. I found this layout idea in one of my many sketch books!
Thanks for popping in today and with luck - I will be back later this week with another post!!!
