I finished up all the Christmas layouts from our Grandma Catherine's Christmas party. I think I still have some to do from Christmas morning of that year. The paper came from a yard sale. I also used up more of the gift tags I bought from a yard sale. I am the worlds cheapest scrapper.
This one has a gift bag that a student gave me with lotion inside. I love the bag - it is so sparkly. I swear I am part racoon. I punched circles for the borders and used rick-rack to finish it off.
This is me with one of my students when I was a student teacher. He was the hardest working young man I've ever met. He was an ESL student. The border punch is by Martha Stewart.
I finally started scrapping Kayana's birth pictures. Her birth traumatized me a bit, so it has taken me a long time to be able to scrap her pictures, but they need to be in her book because she loves to look at it.
In these pictures she seems to be saying, "Oh Grandma, I don't feel so good." She had a hard time getting started, but everything turned out okay.
These next pictures show her poor little face complete with the doctor's handprint, and her head which was bruised and bloody. She is able to grow hair, and her brain is fine - no permanent damage. Her face healed up after about a week. She did end up with some tiny scars on her head, but her hair covers them up.
