Christmas in September

I've been scrapping Christmas layouts.

This is my little grand daughter, Kayana.
The paper is K&Company. The title is a gift tag. I picked up a sack of them at a yard sale. The border punch is by fiskars.

More K and company paper. The tree is another gift tag. The beautiful girl is my grand daughter, Aliese.
These are pictures of my daughter, Angie and her two children Isaac and Callie. The paper is K and Company

  More K and company paper. with some painted chipboard that I can't remember where it came from. I have a hard time remembering names. This is me holding my little grand daughter, Callie. I was lucky to get two grand daughters during the same year.

This is Angie with Callie. The paper is Cosmo Cricket. I bought it at a yard sale. There are scraps on the layout that are another brand of paper - but it beats me which one.
I have one more group of pictures to scrap from this Christmas party. I have one every year for my grandkids. We have a cake for Baby Jesus, the kids act out the Christmas story. We make pretzel , kiss, MM candies, and homemade pretzels. Each child gets to pick an ornament off the Christmas tree as well. Santa usually comes to visit at some point during the party.

Powering Through Pictures

I need to develop pictures before they are lost forever (at least the memories of what happened so I can journal, so I am working hard to get pictures from 2009 into books.

This are my sons, Brandon (Santa) and Matthew. I found this Cosmo Cricket paper at a yard sale. The mitten tag is a gift tag. Santa is rhinestones.

This is my little Callie-bug (Granddaughter) and her daddy Tim. She is adorable. I cut the edge off some ribbon to make the garland. It gave it a nice shredded effect. The silver bows are earrings with the backs cut off.

Isaac (Grandson) does not smile easily. He is a very sober kid, so I felt lucky to get these great non-cheesy smiles. I used the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge on this layout.

This is my son, Matthew. The metal signs are old Karen Foster stash. I need to use up my ribbon and rick-rack stash, so I am trying to to put a bit on each layout.

These next two layouts were from earlier this year, but I forgot to post them. Amazing what I find when I edit pictures.

Pictures are of my Son and Granddaughter, James and Aliese.

Layouts for August and part of September

I haven't been scrapping as much because school has begun, but I did get seven layouts done in the last month.

This layout has pictures from an old camera - before I had digital, but I love the pure delight on the faces of my nieces. I used all scraps on this. I am trying to use up my stash so I can go shopping.

 My daughters loved to swing. I used some very old scraps and ghost letters.

Picturs of my daughter, Angie; son-in-law, Tim; and my grandson, Isaac.
This is Isaac's baby sister, Callie. Yes, I need to scrap more to get all these pictures done. I haven't developed pictures for two years. I need to get on it. The paper was left over from her mamma's wedding album. I love this old Karen Foster paper.

 This little sweetie is my granddaughter, Kayana. She is such a happy little one.

Our youngest son, Matthew at Newport Beach in California.

Matthew's 7th birthday. There are 17 pictures on here. I broke page two into four mini layouts in order to fit everything.

I have a layout on the table that is not finished, so maybe it won't take me so long to get back here again.
