This was a page I completed awhile ago and forgot to post. The picture is of my 2 nephews. I loved the picture so much that I wanted to keep the layout simple. Once again I used my Cricut for the title. I can't remember who made the paper. I also used my Quickutz for the triangular tags. I finally used up some old acrylic leaf buttons I had. Still haven't had much time for creating. Tonight we went to the mall to make our returns. It actually wasn't too bad! We got home after 9, and by the time I get the kids to bed, I am pooped! Plus I have been reading a book entitled, Winter Home. I am so into it that I don't want to make cards or anything! There are just not enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do!

Getting some Scrappin done!

Well, did everyone survive the craziness of the last few days? I have to tell ya, I am somewhat relieved it is over! Today, I have done tons of clean up, laundry, and lots of catch up. We have lots of step-parents, so Christmas is a 5 day celebration. As fun as it all is, it is exhausting! Anyway, I finally scrapped LAST YEAR's pictures.....yes, I know, pretty pathetic! Notice the cute little "snow globe?" Kyle drew this in 4th grade. They were asked to draw their favorite part of Christmas. He chose going downtown, Chicago. Notice the little wheelchair? Isn't it cute? I HAD to include this in this layout of the 2 kids. I kept the LO pretty basic. I cut the title with my Cricut. Added some red Doodlebug strips. I also used Heidi Swapp's journaling tags. And that's it! My new motto is keep it simple stupid! (Where is that expression from? Anyone know? )
I have been playing with My Adobe Photoshop. I took this picture of my cute nephew Alex. He got this tricycle for Christmas. I layered the 2 photos (black and white, and color) and then erased the parts I wanted red. I can't wait to print this and scrap it!

I am so behind on scrappin, so I am going to try to do more LO's and less cards! Am I the only nut who feels pressured to create things JUST for the blog? I know that I sound totally goofy, but I do feel I scrap less, because I want to post often, and it just isn't possible when you are scrapping, cuz it takes longer for most of my layouts. Crazy eh?

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
