Good morning! Happy New Year's Eve to you! I have had a lovely weekend away with my little family. It was an unexpected Christmas gift from my in-laws. We stayed at a hotel in downtown Chicago, shopped, ate like kings, saw a Christmas musical, ate some more, and swam! With the kids getting older, it seems we fly in 800 different directions....so it was nice to reconnect once more. I took a few pics of our day together....
I have a love for photography and I am striving to get better at it. I have been taking the camera off of auto and trying my hand at the manual settings. It has been a learning curve for sure, and sometimes frustrating. But once in awhile the stars align and you get a shot like this one. And especially when it is a shot of Cortney......
I am sure you didn't come here to see pics of my kids, so I will get on to business......scrapbooking!
I created this layout over a year ago for the Cricut Circle of my little gal, Myla. She was rescued from a mill and was 3 pounds of mischievous love! I used my Cricut, Kate's ABC's, Pretty Pennants, and the Cricut Font and Basic Shapes cartridges.
I used a few stickers (SRM), some rub-ons, burlap, and rhinestones....
I love the Pretty Pennants Cartridge....such fun cuts!
Here's the little gal all grown up and a whopping 23 pounds! She has been a wonderful addition to our family, and I am so glad we were able to rescue her.
I have one last thing to share with you! I received an e-mail yesterday telling me that my card, Elegant Tiled Greeting Card, that was featured on All Free Papercrafts, was voted one of the most popular papercrafts in 2013.
I was pretty excited! :)
May you and your family have a happy, healthy, blessed New Year!!
