YES! You are the right page! I just have a new name! :) After realizing that I do more than just scrapbooking, I've decided to change the name and will be changing the look.. I'd do a whole new blog but I'd hate to have to start all over.
Here you will find scrapbooking ideas. There's a ton of older posts that used the Cricut, but lately I haven't been using it much and well, my sewing machine is gaining more miles by the day.

Baby Announcements

One more thing crossed off my list! The stickles are drying at the moment.. hopefully won't take too much longer. Then inside all I have to add after Bianca is born is the date, time, height and weight.

Baby was cut from New Arrival. Stamp is from Stampabilities. And the 'bow' is Magenta Stickles. The face was stamped with Peachy Keen

First Layouts of Bianca's Baby Book

I started Bianca's Baby book last night. I wanted to get the Titles/photo frames and journal boxes all glued down, and have them all decorated ready to go, so that later I can just pop the pictures in them.

I'm using the same background paper, and paper for the photo mats through out the book. I have all the pages done, just need to do the embellishments on them!

Here are the first 3 layouts!

Check your Local Trade Sites :)

I been getting some really great deals on local trade sites... and it's not Craigslist! I was told about a Facebook group, and I guess there's many of them for all sorts of areas of the country. This has been saving me tons of money on baby clothes! Baby Girl Bianca has enough clothes now for her first 6 months! Here's just one of the lots that I got, I have a box full, and there's well over 50 outfits from newborn to 6 months, and I paid only $50 for it. So if you're in the market for something, check on Facebook to see if there is a group set up for your area! (Try searching for "local trade, swap, free" groups.)

30" Paper Doll

What happens when someone requests a 30" Football paper doll that needs to be painted onto a wall, and there is only one room in the house that hasn't been painted to test it out before it gets sent to it's final destination?? It ends up on one of the kids's walls. LOL. I've got a friend who is doing her Son's room in Viking colors, and she saw my valentines from 2 years ago with the mini Farve. She asked if I could make it bigger and be able to trace it to paint on to the wall. Since she's coming to town tomorrow, thought I'd get cracking on it.
I used PDDU and Design Studio to blow up a body and then had to line all the corresponding pieces so that it would be a good fit. Then, I cut it out of Mat Board and taped all the pieces together. Since I wanted to be sure that everything would fit as needed, and it helps to have a visual aid, I traced it onto an empty wall in Jordan's room.

Then, using Acrylic paint that I had on hand, Adrian Peterson was painted. It didn't take too long to paint and let him dry, and when Jordan decides on a color for his room, it can be covered up... but I'm hoping that he'll keep it and we can use molding to make a "frame" around him :) We'll see.. he's not much of a Vikings fan, but maybe he'll grow on him...
