Another great reveal over at Creative Scrappers!!!!! Please go and check them out at http://creativescrappers.blogspot.com/

Being a lover of sketches...which I consider the blue prints of a great scrapbook design, I found this one by Kristine Davidson who is also the creator of Creative Scrappers. I am on a little bit of a Glimmer Mist high so bare with my obsession for just a while longer. The layouts above and below I have used two beautiful lines by BoBunny. The flowers above are made with the retro flower punch by EK Success. If you ever have any questions about a technique or product please don't hesitate to ask. I love this craft and I looooooove sharing it!!!!!!

Another new fave is Jilliebean since they have a wide variety of all things Kraft. Seems to be a growing trend, Kraft paper that is, and I am loving it. Also Crate Paper never ceases to amaze me with their fun product lines. Below is my oldest son with his girlfriend and my daughter at his birthday dinner last year. I can't believe how much time has flown by...in another 2 1/2 months he will be 18!!!!!! I cannot not believe I am about to be the mother of an 18 year old...a man. Ughhhhh, I am filling the stir of butterflies in my stomach or maybe it is the early pangs of empty nest. Either way, I have one more year with him being at home and I am going to enjoy every minute of it!!!!

Christmas time has fallen upon us once again. This year I let the kids totally take the reigns of the tree. If you knew me, you would know that that is a hard thing to do. I am so like my mother in the sense that I am somewhat of a decor perfectionist. Anyway, I have to say, they did a great job and they had fun which is something they will remember. Gotta love that!
