Well, I can't believe that 2009 is almost over! Christmas was great here except that I had to go into work on Christmas Night! Oh Well, the next paycheck is going to be AWESOME, 2 days of holiday pay plus 80+ hours! Can't wait!
I am a follower of Pinky, she is one AWESOME, TALENTED Lady! And she posted her Fave 5 layouts of the year and so I decided to do the same. Here are my Fave 5, I didn't get a lot scrapped this year, except for the last few months. So, I am choosing 5 that I have done recently:
Here's #1: This layout was for Sketchy Thursday, and this pic of my Cousin's daughter Jayda was the first 5 x 7 I came across and I just LOVED how it turned out.
Number 2: This layout if from Grandparent's Luncheon with My Angle Girl Cricket. I made this for a Challenge, but don't remember which one! LOL!
Number 3: This was from a Sketchy Thursday Challenge also, its of My Princess Abbers having fun in the bathtub. This was also the first time I EVER used paint!! TOOO COOL!!
Number 4: I do believe that this was also from a Sketchy Thursday Challenge. It is of My Little Peanut Braxton just being Precious!
Number 5: This layout was from a Bo Bunny Challenge I do believe, it is using the Boo Crew line. It's of all my kiddos on Halloween!
As you can tell most of my layouts are pretty simple. I LOVE using the sketches and all the challenges that I have found, it has helped me get back into scrappin' and also get some pages done!! If you decide to do a FAVE 5, please leave me a link so I can see what you do. Inspiration comes from LOTS of different people and things!
I did receive a WONDERFUL gift for Christmas from my Dear Hubby, He got me a Cricut Expressions, and I purchased the Design studio to go with it!! I had a Quickutz Silhouette for about 4 years and have absolutely WORE it out! Yes, I have cut LOTS of stuff with it! So, FINALLY yesterday, my Daughter Tiffany came down and took it out of the box, set it up for me and showed me how to use it. This is what I made with it today:
I hope you all have a Great, Blessed, Happy, Healthy and
Scrap~A~Licious New Year!
