This LO was very very simple. I lifted the idea from a LO displayed at Green Tangerines. They had the adorable monster paper displayed with a LO very similar to this. These photos were taken while we were at Disneyland on the Monsters Inc. ride.

How stinking cute does Josie look in these pictures? These photos were taken several years ago but looking at them now (she is now 5 1/2) they capture her personality perfectly.

I am always at a loss at how to scrap professional portraits. I am afraid of working the pages to much and losing the focus on the photos. So I kept this one very simple with the flame papers and Jolee's motorcycle sticker. The metal strip I stumbled upon at the Scrapbook Expo back in November. The title was cut using the Street Signs cart for the Cricut.

Just check out her little smile/smirk in the second photo, ADORABLE!!

I have shown a card already using this stamp before but I just had to share another one. I love House Mouse and all of the detailing in their stamps. I made this card for a neighbors birthday. I just happened to find a red patterned scrap that looked similar to how I colored the cheese wrapper. Thanks for looking.

This past October, our niece, Alyssa, started playing soccer. She is a really good player and is absolutely adorable in her uniform.

Here is a quick LO that I completed of her very first game. There will be many more LO's of her playing soccer in the future. Can you believe that I took over 100 photos of just her first game alone? She is a cutie!!

Here is a quick little birthday gift that I made for a special little girl that is turning 8 today. I love altering composition notebooks and I hope that she likes this one.

I used the Mermaid Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm and cut the coral and seaweed from the Life's a Beach cartridge for the Cricut. I absolutely love that cart! The shell and fishie brads are ones that I had in my stash and I can not recall who makes them. I covered the inside with a little paper and added ribbon to tie it closed.

I think this project would be a great little goodie bag idea for birthday parties. You can usually pick up the notebooks for 15 cents a piece.

I cheated on this LO and used a kit that I bought at the Scrapbook Expo a few months ago. The kit is from Cut-It-Up. All of the pieces are already cut out for you, you just add the details (chalk, inking or doodling) and put it all together. I didn't use all of the pieces that came in the kit as I would have only been able to put two photos on the LO. So I have some more "babes" for another LO.

The photos were taken in Pacifica this past summer. We love the beach!!!

I am anxiously awaiting the birth of my new nephew. My SIL is due on Saturday but I am hoping the little guy comes early!!!

Here is a card that I whipped up to accompany my SIL's baby shower gift last month. The stamp is 2073J "Baby Hammock" from Penny Black. I colored the image with my Prismas using the Gamsol technique. I also used my Nestabilities....I think it's the labels two? A little glossy accents, some ribbon, a $1 Studio G sentiment stamp and a safety pin.

Now if the little guy would just make his grand entrance!!
