Callie and little boys

I'm still on a scrapping roll - trying to use up product and get stuff done before school starts. At some point I will even need to develop current pictures.

This is Callie. We were so happy to hear her strong cries. We knew that meant the NICU was not in her future.

Tim is such a good daddy. I am thankful my grandchildren have him as a father. I used up a lot of scraps on this layout.

This is from Callie's blessing day.

This is Matt and Isaac all ready to go to the temple open house. They were both so excited to go see the temple.

Only a few more weeks to scrap before school starts

The last ten days, I've been able to scrap with my sister, Jill, and my daughter-in-law, Cayli. I have also spent time scrapping on my own. School will start in less than an month, and scrapping time will be cut short.

One of the little girls had such a crush on Matt; she would run after him and hold his hand. It really embarrassed him.

This fishing layout is a lift of anderjackie from Twopeasinabucket.
You can see her layout here: Caught

My little guy was all dressed up to go to the temple open house. He looked so cute in his suit.

I did this layout after watching a Glitter Girl video where she showed how to add dimension to layouts. I used a lot of old product on this, and I love how it turned out.

This is my oldest daughter, Angie, my son, Matthew, and my grandson, Isaac.

My youngest daughter, Caitie, and her husband, Nathan were sealed in the SLC temple. It was such a happy day. The pictures are not this washed out in real life.

I still have random Disney pictures from the many trips we have taken there. I think this may be the last of them.

These pictures are from Matt's fourth birthday. He is now nine. I really need to keep this ball rolling and scrap as much as I have in the last ten days. The bottom border on this layout is all from my scraps. I love it when I can use them up.

My goal is to use up old product. I have too much stuff. My other goal is to get to the point that I need to develop the pictures from the end of 2009 and beyond.

Finally Some Time to Scrap!

It's been a while. We've been finishing our basement. We still need to find furniture, but until we do, we can watch tv sitting on the nice soft carpet. I am loving having it done. Here are a four layouts I finished this weekend (and today) and two more I did several weeks ago.
I used up some really old star paper on this one with some newer paper that is in a pack of USAF paper. The punch is by Martha Stewart. I love her border punches.

These are pictures of my daughter and grand daugther. I found the red flowered paper at a yard sale this weekend for 10 cents. The punch is a Fiskars border punch. 

These are my two little grand daughters - two years ago. I need to get cracking. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and more 10 cent a sheet paper from a yard sale.

This is my little grandson, Isaac. It is so hard to get him to smile. He thinks if he tilts his head, it is a smile. This is more of the 10 cent paper with a card stock sun on top of it. The ribbon is from Stampin' Up.

Again more of the 10 cent paper. I love yard sales. The tags were from my old, old stash; I pulled a bunch of old stuff out this morning and challenged myself to use something from the pile. I painted the sticker letters to match the layout. I am trying to use up all my old letter stickers and only use my Cricut once they are gone. 

This is a picture of my mom and step-dad. They were so cute together. Mom sure does miss him.
