Movie Matinee

Ms. Kelly enjoyed watching "The Tales of Desperaux"
We give it a strong 4 stars...a bit long for the little one,
otherwise a good movie with a good message.

Thank you Grandma!

My first 12x12 page

Drum rolls Please...My very first 12x12 Scrapook page!

***Titled: "Tiny Tots" created in early 2003***

Remember how popular magentic photo albums used to be? I used to keep all kinds of magazine clippings, pictures and notes...then I was introduced to those huge black scrapbooks with a string on one side...that's where I started this hobby, from there I used notebooks to doodle and keep ephemera of places I wanted to remember, just taped and glued stuff right on the a diary with memorabilia. In the scrapbooking world 8.5 x 11 was the standard for a while until, somehow 12x12 became the new standard. So, after not "scrapping" for years, after I met my husband in 2003, I was re-introduced to scrabpooking in this new fun way...with pretty papers and stickers and other cool embellies...So, I gave it a try...and this was my first page.

Be scrapppy!

New Page: Kung Fu Panda

Oh, yeah! Watch out...Miss.Kelly is ready! I had waited for sometime to finish this page, I knew that I wanted to keep it simple and designed my sketch, yet it was missing something...Then, just the other day I came across this punch out of Po in my daughter's treasure box in her bedroom and asked if we could add it to her page...she LOVED the idea and immediately said YES! So, here it is...another memory for her book.

Christmas Parade

Last night we had a date with Santa. Despite the fact that it was very cold...we all had a great time watching the Christmas parade, which was held at night for the very first time.
Afterwards, we warmed up with a nice cup of coffee at our favorite book store.

Shout out of the week...Me!

Well, this is one of the best ways to start your week...
Over at Art Freckles (super cool monthly scrapbooking kit company) One of my pages was chosen as the "shout out of the week" by one of their Design Team Members.
This page of my "Morning Beauty" received lots of views on the first day that was posted. Well, I am truly flattered...thank you girls!

Here is the original post from their forum and below is the original post of my page.

This is SOOOO cool! It made my day.

Hope you all have a wonderful day too.
