Frozen 67, 68, 69, and 70

I nearly fell out of the freezer this week. I went shopping for supplies for my Lego pictures, but I liked what I already had at home more than what I saw at the store, so I came home, scrapped, and stayed frozen.

30 more to go.

This is my momma and my daughter, Caitie.
 I used scraps on this layout. I have a naked tree punch that works great behind flowers. I don't know that I've ever used it as a tree.
 The centers of the flowers are brads that came from our scrap swap. Thanks to whoever brought them.
 These were the pictures that sent me to the scrap store, but I couldn't find anything there that would work any better than what I ended up using. I ended up adding a small Mickey head to the tag after I took this first picture. This is my son, Matt.
The California tag is from the back of a blouse I bought. I take the tags out because they make me itch and many of them make it into my scrapbooks. The title is MM.
 This tag was from clothing as well. I cut it in two.
 I used old crayon paper from 1998 on this layout, but it works.

 This is my grand daughter, Kayana.
 The embellishments are strips from worded patterned paper, and little cut outs from the border strip on MME paper - you know the strip that shows what else comes with the paper line. At this point - 70 pages in - everything is a possible embellishment.

Frozen 65 and 66

I'm still working away at my 100 frozen challenge.

This is my mom, and my sisters, Elaine and Cindy. I think they are so pretty.

This is two of my sons, Brandon and Matthew. Matt wants to be just like Brandon, which is good because Brandon is a pretty awesome person.

Frozen 63 and 64

I better kick up my speed a bit if I plan on finishing my freeze before yard-sale seasons starts. The sales will start next month, and I am still 36 layouts away from my goal. Oh, dear.

This is my little grandson, Jace. He is now two years old. I love when babies find their hands.

 The details: The title
 Some old Hot off the Press Velum.

This is my son, Matthew, who is now eleven and no longer wants to help clean up.
 This simple looking layout took me way too much time to complete. I am a slow-poke! However, I used up a lot of eyelets on this one.

Frozen 61 and 62

At this point, I'd almost like to count two page layouts as two, but I won't. My goal was to complete 100 layouts without shopping for anything but adhesive and blades, so I will stick with it. A layout is a layout - one or two pages.

This is my grand daughter Callie's first birthday. I'm glad I got to these pictures as she is turning five this year and starting kindergarten. She is such a sweet child.

The one is cut with my Cricut. I love the sparkly paper that I picked up at a yardsale last summer. I think I must be part raccoon or something. I am finding as I complete this challenge that I really like sparkly things - rhinestones, glitter, glitter paper, and such, so now when I go shopping after I complete the last 38 layouts, I will buy more sparkly stuff.
 The tiny flowers are punched from the glitter background paper.

  This little one is my grand daughter Kayana.
The telephone is from Cricut - Summer in Paris. My son didn't know what it was. When I told him is was a phone, he argued with me and said, "How is that a phone." He pointed to the handset and said, "So if it is a phone,what is this?" I cut the base with black cardstock and covered it with glitter glue.

 I love this picture.

Frozen 59 and 60

I better pick my pace if I plan on completing this challenge before yard-sale season starts.

A family game night of Pretty, Pretty Princess. Nathan won.

This embellishment cluster is a combination of patterned paper, sickers, sequins, and other embellishments that I've had forever.
 The rhinestone circle came from our swap last Saturday. The rhinestone letters have been in my stash forever. Most of them are Frankensteined.
 Matt's 8th birthday. He isn't a fan of cake, so I made him a big plate of rocky-road candy.
