More from my scrappy Saturday

I'm back again with another creation from the all day crop I attended last week.  It's based on a sketch from Stuck?! sketches

I am happy with how it turned out and I plan to play along at Stuck?! again.  And, another page for Miss Amelia's baby book is done!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Around the World Online crop - with Two Scrapbook Friends

Happy Friday!

I've been crafting again! I went to an all day crop last Saturday (daddy's first time taking care of Amelia on his own - they did great!) It was awesome! A great time with great friends and I managed to get a couple of layouts done too.

I completed this layout of our trip to Madrid (it's been EXACTLY a year - my how times have changed!) We went to a flamenco show at Corral de la Moreria and it was fabulous. I loved it!

This works for Joanne's map challenge on the Two Scrapbook Friends online crop.  This layout is the right side of a double page layout. 
Thanks for peeking!
Have a great weekend!

Another Two Scrapbook Friends forum challenge

Hi there!

I'm back with another layout. On the Two Scrapbook Friends forum, Amanda challenged us to use paint. Typically, I only use paint to flick spots on my background, but I took a page out Amanda's book and used it like a photo mat.

Of course, it's a layout featuring my new favourite subject, Miss Amelia. I also painted the blue heart (hearts can be blue, right). I like this layout, but don't LOVE it, but another one is done for my girl's book so that is what matters. I had painted 2 other hearts but couldn't make them work on the layout.

I hope to be back soon with a layout with Amelia's 4 month photo shoot pics - we got some good ones this time!

See you soon,

Kelly :)

2 posts in 2 days! whaaat?!?!

I'm back again! I was lucky enough to spend the day at my favourite scrappy store, Two Scrapbook Friends. And while I was there, I completed the July sketch challenge from their forum. Christa created an awesome sketch :)

It feels so great to be scrapbooking again!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

I'm baaaaaack!

Hi there! Sorry to be MIA for so long but I think you all understand. I love being a mum and Amelia is the best thing ever, but she does take up A LOT of my time ;) We're finally in a bit of a rhythm so I actually had a bit of time to create something. It's based on a StuckonUSketches sketch for July 5-18 so I'm getting it in just under the wire!  I used the Simple Stories 24/7 line - LOVE IT!!  As well, this layout works for the challenge over at the Two Scrapbook Friends forum.  You are to use a negative, which I did for the PHOTO word in my title.  I cut it out using my silhouette - love that handy little machine!

She's had enough of the photo shoot!

(Sorry for the less than stellar picture. I had a nice one all done up but blogger wouldn't upload it so I had to resort to uploading it via picassa in it's natural format. None of the cropping I did stuck)

Anyhow, this is Amelia's 3 month photo shoot. Every month I make a badge for her on my silhouette and we do a little photo shoot. This month, Amelia let me know when she was done as she ripped the badge from her shirt! I just love her face in that picture!  There is hidden journalling on the "true story" tab as well.

I hope to be able to play along with SOUS a little more often now!

Thanks for peekin'!

Recent Picture

Hi y'all,

Sorry I haven't been blogging much - nesting and baby preparation is taking up most of my time these days :)

Just popped in to share a quick picture - I'm 36 weeks pregnant today! Only 4 (give or take) weeks until we meet our wee one. I can't believe my due date is so close! My pregnancy has flown by.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Paper Mixing Bowl - February 2013 Recipe - Red Velvet Cake


I'm back with this month's Paper Mixing Bowl challenge. I had to skip January's challenge, so I'm glad to be playing along this month.

Here's the recipe:

And here's what I came up with:

This actually came together pretty quickly, a rarity for me. Maybe it's because I love the colour combo and had lots of paper to choose from as most of my wedding album used these colours :) I managed to use all of the utensils except frosting.

Thanks for stopping by!

Project Life/365 - Week One

Hi there,

I've decided to make the leap and do Project Life this year. The way I see it, there is no better year to start than this year, a year of big changes for my hubby & I.

So, here is my first week in pictures.

PL Day 1 - This is my project life - 2013

This is my "title" page for Project Life as I didn't actually take this picture on January 1st. I did work on it in Photoshop that day though :)

PL Day 2 - "I'm innocent!"

This picture is of my Polydactyl princess, Addy, right after she used her big paws to drop the "awful" nail clippers down the drain! We did manage to get them out using a magnet tied to a piece of string (phew!).

PL Day 3 - Preggo Kelly

This is me at 28 weeks, 2 days pregnant. Third trimester already, YIKES!!! I guess I better start getting things organized - I've yet to register at the hospital, choose a crib or car seat or paint the baby's room. We better get crackin'!!

PL Day 4 - "Summer Fun" Ride

This is our new-to-us "summer fun" ride. We drove it today to get it licensed but will be parking it for the winter.

PL Day 5 - Baby Snuggles

My BFF Sam had her baby boy on New Year's eve but we had yet to meet him. Today we visited with Sam and met baby Tennysen. He's such a cutie, only really cried when Sam changed him and mostly just slept and looked cute. It was great to finally meet him - I guess Jason & I are up next :)

PL Day 6 - Groceries!

I went grocery shopping today while Jason shovelled the driveway (I so got the better deal!). I hit 3 stores, picking up all the sale items and now we're set for the next week or so. It feels so good to have a full fridge and full cupboards again.

PL Day 7 - ENGL 377R

So, I signed up for a course this term, a follow-up to the Grammar course I took last winter. I'm not entirely sure it's a great idea (see PL Day 3 and all of the things we still need to do to get ready for the baby) but I am going to go to both lectures this week and decide. I really like the prof for the course and this is the last time she will be teaching it, which only makes the decision to drop it more difficult.

So there you go, a peek into my life so far in 2013.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great week!

Kelly :)
