Clean Scraproom

I am going to start off 2009 with a clean scraproom. This is the space that I create in. It is the first room I visit in the morning and the last room I visit before going to bed. This is where my children will find me when they are hungry and my husband will find me when he's lonely. It is my favorite room in the house. Friends call this room candy for the eyes and other's just shake their heads and don't understand. This is where friends come to play and laughter can be heard. Sometimes I stick to the floor or on some days I can't even find the floor. It is a room that inspires me and never fails to put a smile on my face. Who wants to come and make a mess with me?

A Scrapper's Night Before Christmas

One of the Ladies from Just Cre8 posted this on the forum. I thought it was very funny. Enjoy.

Twas the night before Christmas,
I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock or chipboard or lace?
Or a Cricut, I said, with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him,
"Hi Santa" I said"
You know.... good little girls should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa, and now I've been caught.
But I was just so excited To see what you brought."
"Well, let's take a look in this room where you work.
He shook his head quickly,
And left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear
"You've got enough crap,
I 'll see you next year!"

I am wishing each one of you a heartfelt Merry Christmas. I thank you for faithfully stopping by to view my "creations" and look forward to hearing from you in 2009.(even my lurkers. lol.)

My tree topper

This is my tree topper. I bought her 6 years ago.She has graced the top of my tree every year since. This is the 1 ornament I cherish above all. She remind me of home and of my Grandmother's tree. She always makes me stop and think about what it is I am supposed to be celebrating. I am very happy to have this on my tree and will be very sad when I one day will have to "retire" her (hopefully many years down the road.)

This picture is from our 2004 holiday to the west coast. I have been working on this LO for awhile. When it finally came together I loved it. I used scraps from my stash.

Summer Safari

Nothing to creative about this page. I distressed and inked everything. I used a vintage brown cupcake paper to make 1 of the flowers in the cluster at the bottom of the page. We had so much fun this summer visiting spray parks and paddling pools.

The November kit from Just Cre8. This is my niece Kennedy. She is my brothers adopted daughter. She is beautiful. Shane has been the only Daddy she has ever known and he loves her like only a daddy can. I am so proud of him for being the great Father he is and for loving this little girl. She is such a blessing to our family.

Listen.....to the wind

I used the September kit from Just Cre8 for this page. I love this page. I love the picture. I am still a farm girl. I have always loved listening to the wind through the grass and trees. It is like listening to Mother Natures symphony.

This page was made with the November kit from Just Cre8. I did some "pen stitching" on the white flower paper and love how it turned out. I used Pewter Liquid Pearls to write my title. I stamped my paper to make the pattern on my torn flower.
