Scrapbooking, Ice Skating

Happy New Year! I've got a layout for the memory nest for you!  It's getting really tricky to get my scrapbooking pages done as I wait for baby #3 to come.  My big belly keeps getting in the way!  Hopefully, it will only be about two more weeks.  It's so hard to move around or do much of anything.  I usually go ice skating every year around christmas, but it was so hard just having to watch. Anyways, I miss being able to do things.  What is driving my crazy is seeing things on the floor and not being able to pick them up is driving me crazy.  Especially the legos!  There always seems to be little lego pieces lying around.

Scrapbooking, Christmas Traditions

Another layout for the memory nest using photos for my Christmas cards.  That big gray space screams that it needs some journaling to me, so I might need to go back and add some..

Scrapbooking, Christmas

Happy Sinterklaas Day!  I'll celebrate by sharing my layout for the memory nest.  I managed to get a cute picture of my kids for my christmas cards!  I actually got a few pictures, but this one is my favorite!  I wasn't sure if I was going to scrap a black and white version or a colored one, as my kids have some really interesting color combinations going on.  In the end, I found the bird with a pink hat and decided that the color one would win.

Scrapbooking, Donut Lovin

I'm way late in posting this.  It's a layout I made for the Memory Nest about a month ago.....Life happened along with some fabulous pregnancy brain.  I've found it rather difficult to be behind my computer lately.  I much rather sleep then do almost anything. Oh well.  I've accumulated a lot of donut scrapbook paper and I decided to use these black and white ones.  In real life, this page doesn't seem so black and white.  Originally, I was going to color in all the donuts, but then I kind of liked the look of them not colored in.

Scrapbooking, Together

I have a fun page today for the Memory Nest!

It lights up!  I'm super impressed by myself on this one.  I found some of my wedding photos that I never scrapbooked and they were tucked with this  really beautiful lantern paper. I cut out the lanterns and I started thinking wouldn't it be cool to make them actually light up?  When I got the sketch with the lightblub on it, I knew I had to make it work.  I don't have any in progress photos (pregnancy makes me lazy), but I used this Chibi Lights kit.  It's a bit expensive, but it is so much fun.  My kids think this is the coolest page ever.  It took two attempts, but I did get it to work.  My electronic/ circut knowledge is very minimal.

If you have any questions, let me know!

Cards, Mermaid

I hope you enjoyed my week of cards!  Here is my last one.  I love the rainbow fishes.  I also made one with a narwhal that was mighty awesome, but I don't think I ever took a photo of it.  Bummer!

Cards, Fungi

I thought I would go and share this week some birthday cards that I have been making.  Sorry the photo is so poor.  I had to quickly snap it before I put it in the mail!
