All Smiles

I have been scrapping for a lady/friend for several years now. She has a beautiful little redhed grandbaby that is just precious. She is growing up, but these are a few of her baby pictures that I am just getting to. I have seen a few really cute layouts online that are 1 pagers that are in the shape of a circle, so I incorporated them into a 2 page layout. I hope you enjoy!

PS. You know my photo skills are NOT the greatest, but just wanted to show you the layout design. :)

Baby It's Cold Outside

Well, it has been a little chilly down here in South LA, but not really cold enough for snow. I have been praying and praying that we might get a few flakes and I was not lucky enough for this to happen. Even though we did not get any snow, I did get tons of sign-ups for this cute little layout class. I will be teaching this at TM this week, 4 completely full classes. Well, I do have a few spots open for the Friday class, all in all I have a total of 67 ladies taking this class this month. Thank you all for allowing me to teach you so many fun techniques and a few new products along the way!

Playing Catch Up!

Here are a few layouts that I completed while at Goldilocks Getaway. I finished a total of 16 layouts and I had a million more that I could have done! I was pretty happy to get caught up with my boys stuff. However, I did not get to work on any Disney or our Arkansas trip. I am afraid I will be taking another trip before I ever get to these layouts.
Stop, Drop & Roll: Various Disney papers, black cardstock, and various diecuts.
Bewitching Attraction: Aunthentique Halloween Line, Dusty Attic chipboard and Vintage Halloween cards.
Zombie Sockmonkey: Sandable paper, cardstock in red, cream, and black; Thicker letters.
Fall: Used so many products do really remember all the companies.
Banditos: Little Yellow Bycycle Baseball line.

We had the best time at the Goldilocks Getaway. I hope that we get to do that at least twice a year. It was refreshing to work on some of my own things, as well as, spending time with friends.

Until my next post.....happy scrapping!

Goldilocks Getaway

Well, my fellow scrappers...I am almost off! I know many of you think it must be awesome to work at a scrapbook store. Well, it is! But, you never get to scrap for yourself once your hobby becomes a job. A painter never paints his own house. A mechanic never fixes his own car...right?! Well, a scrapbook teacher never scraps her own stuff. I was going to take my customers things to work on, but I said to myself...this weekend is for me! I will be scrapping for myself. It is a new scrapping getaway located in Baton Rouge. It is actually a quilters retreat house, but another group of scrappers went and used it as a scrapbook house, and they said it was wonderful. So I am off to a fun filled weekend of scrapping, laughter, movies, reading and relaxing. I hope I will have some layouts to share with you soon. Take care my scrappy friends. I do have a new class out at TM. I will post layout later. If you would like to see it, go to and click on class calendar. It is titled "Baby it's Cold Outside."
