many thanks.

many thanks flower

I had a birthday last week so I had to get to work on my thank you notes for all the wonderful gifts I received! I used the Our Craft Lounge set Fabulous Florals and my Studio Calico Partly Sunny kit. I used the donut chain punch and my trusty SU scallop punch. I have to say, I'm a little punch happy these days!

If your looking for a fun card sketch, check out the Friday sketch on the Our Craft Lounge blog. It looks like a fun one. In fact I'm going to get right on it as soon as I log off! There is also some CHA fun and some sneak peaks for the new sets.

have a super weekend!

you two.

Here's another layout with Studio Calico's amazing kits. It seems that I can no longer scrap with out them! I'm sure my other supplies are getting lonely but it's just so easy to pick up a kit and start scrapping, so that's what I've been doing (although not nearly enough!).
I did mix up the kits a bit here and even used a few bits from my stash. I mainly used Partly Sunny and added the flowers from Granny's Cupboard. Of course I had to throw a butterfly in there. It's not complete until a blinged out butterfly is flying onto the page. ha!

Even though summer has barely started, it;s starting to wind down for us. My kids get out of school at the end of May so we only have about 3 weeks of summer vacation left. Kind of a bummer! It's really been fun having them home.

adorable moves.


Last month I was one of the lucky winners of Studio Calico's new line Documentary! I just now got around to scrapping with it and I am in love! The colors are gorgeous and although it's a travel line it can be used for so much more! I was able to scrap a girly birthday picture and a boyish sports page with it. I have also fallen in love with their fab rips. I used up almost the whole pack on 2 projects and definitely need to have more. Here is link to the Anthology fab rips so you can check them out. Seriously one of the best products I have used lately!

major moves

finishing up.

I've had these divided page protectors for a while, been wanting to try them out for the events that I had a ton of pictures for. We took a weekend trip to Vail a couple of years ago and I had already scrapped a few of my favorite pictures. I wanted to include all of these photos but just couldn't scrap them all so I pulled out the divided protectors and went to work.


For this one I used the Studio Calico Partly Sunny Kit and a couple of Our Craft Lounge stamp sets. {fabulous flowers and life is} The strips on the top panel are from Studio Calico's Documentary line. They were actually left overs from a layout I did {look for it tomorrow} and I couldn't bear to throw them away! Good thing too because I happen to think it's perfect for this.


More from my Partly Sunny kit {trying to use some of it before this months kit arrives on friday and not doing such a good job! there is a lot there.}

On another note...I am so close to being done scrapping ALL of my photos from 2007! I have a few summer pics and of course Christmas. I always find those the hardest pictures to scrap, however I am going to bust out the divided page protectors again because not only do I have Christmas but the gift that year was a trip to Disneyland so I have all of those picture too! Now you can see why I don't have them done.

J now and then

already 7

I've been scrapping older photos for a while now so I thought I'd throw a current one in there for once. Kinda makes me want to keep doing some current ones but I'm on a roll and almost done with 2007 so I'm going to keep pluggin through it!
{this one made with the Studio calico kit Granny's cupboard}


This is J right after she turned 4. So cute and chubby and little. I miss the little her sometimes but am still glad she's growing into such an amazing gal!
