So, I'm totally hooked on Guitar Hero! We're having a little Guitar Hero party for New Year's Eve! :) The guitar comes with stickers, but I thought it would be even cuter with the Anchored Rub-ons. Click to see more detail...how perfect is the "Superstar" rub-on?!

Christmas Eve and Day were very exciting and fun filled for my family. I dropped by to visit and bake with friends, then we heading off to visit with my husband's side of the family, which was extra special since his sister secretly flew in Charlie's brother and family from NC. We had just been saying how sad we weren't that this was their first Christmas away from us...so there were more tears when they showed up! :)
On Christmas Day, the kiddos opened their many gifts from Mommy, Daddy and Santa...what a mess! Their favorite gifts were their scooters. I got a laptop and new camera "for my Stampin' Up! stuff." We then went to my parents' to visit with my side and stayed for such a long time...we were all rocking out to Guitar Hero...guess what my hubby bought today on his lunch hour?!!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their family!

This is the cute, and very simple layout my "Sassy Scrappers" club made this weekend. We used the Color Spritzer Tool on the title mat and did the faux stitching on one photo mat...seemed to go with the theme. We always scrapbook a month behind so they can bring their photos to throw onto their completed pages. I make 2 layouts each month...one for each of my kids. Here's Gordon, my little scarecrow. My little Gaby was Dorothy, of course. :) (Can you tell I love my new 1 3/4" Circle Punch?!)

I had my Baby Book Class this weekend...the ladies loved their books. This book is just like the Baby Girl Book, just using the Rock-A-Bye Baby Boy Simply Scrappin' Kit instead...I ended up liking the Boy book even more than the girl book...the colors are just so darn cute! The last ("I'm One") page has a pocket for journaling, and a photo can go right on top of the pocket. This is such a fun book to make...only half of a Simply Scrappin' Kit too! One of the gals that came made her book for here baby that's only a few weeks away from being born. Key Dimensions for this book: The book is 8.5" x 6". For the cover, the Tangerine Tango strip is 2 3/4" tall. The ribbon won't go through the Bind-It-All machine, so just add it after binding with some Sticky Strip. Birth Page:Tangerine is 3/4", the chicks are 2" and the Old Olive is 3/4". For months 1 &2, cut the paper into a 1 inch strip and use the Scallop Edge Punch...save the thin strip and reverse to have some contrast. Months 3 &4: Tangerine Tango is 1/2" and the chicks are about 1/2" as well and the Bashful Blue is 3/4". Months 5 &6 use the self adhesive die cut strip along the bottom and add a 1" strip of the striped blue designer paper. Months 7&8: Old Olive is 1" and the Stars/Circles Designer paper is 3/4". Months 9&10: Tangerine Tango is 1 1/4" and the chicks paper is 1". Months 11&12: Stars/Circles paper is 1" and the Olive Star paper is 1/4". For the "I'm One" page: Chicks paper is about 2" x 6", the pocket is 3 1/2" x 4"...use the Scallop Edge Punch along the top, then adhere Sticky Strip to the sides and bottom only. The journaling will go on a sheet that's 4 1/4" x 2 3/4". The Old Olive strip on this page is 2" thick. I used the Jumbo Eyelets for the journaling sheet. Hope this was helpful!

I was so excited when I first saw this "Create-A-Calendar '09 Kit" in the Holiday Mini Catalog. I sat down yesterday and cranked this out pretty darn fast. I just stuck to the samples shown in the mini catalog. I think this would also be great to bind at the top to make like a tablet, instead of storing the monthy claendars in the envelope. I would just cute the envelope a bit to make it the front and back covers. Isn't this an adorable and practical gift?! I will offer this class in November...too fun. The stamps and inks are the only items that were not included in the kit, which is only $7.95. I used Simply Said, Eastern Blooms and Flight of the Butterfly to add a bit more color to the calendar pages. The swatches of paper are the back sides of the calendar pages...everything is even precut for you!
