5. Fussy cutting - something must be cut out of paper 

I was tricky and doubled up....this 'fussy cut' camera brought to this layout by Aimee Westcott. Gracias, my friend
6. Hand written journaling
Got it.
7. White cardstock

Got it.
8. A popped up element

What ISN'T popped? I think I pop everything. :D  Seriously, tho, I popped the main photo of Aurora and me.
9. Alpha stickers

Got it. 

Due to a weekend scrapping retreat, I finished mine 'early'!  It is nice having it completed before the night it is due (reminds me of college...lol!).  

This is a sweet little 8.5" x 11" LO of Aurora and me.  I love how simple it is, even thought it has 9 8 required elements!

Thanks for stopping by and have a FANTASTIC FRIDAY!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentines Day, friends!

I won a sweet little blog draw from Elles Studio today!  I saw their booth at CHA - such cute product!

We spent our evening as a family...first stop was some Dickey's BBQ.  Aurora had her first chicken nuggets, while we feasted on some pulled pork.  We then had a quick trip to the store for some provisions, and then home for some playtime before ni-nigh time.

And now ice cream.

Unfortunately, I didn't take a single photo.

Sad, sad panda.

So, here is a photo of my Valentine and me at Mt. Rushmore. <3 p="">

Old Layouts!

I just got a Macbook Air (WHEEEE!) and am cleaning off my current computer.  I found photos of layouts I hadn't gotten around to posting, so I thought I'd take the opportunity to post before blowing them away. :D  All of these are circa Fall 2010. 

Some beautiful flowers I received from Loren on my birthday!

My mom loves ice skating, so I go with her and take the photos. :D 

This was a 'grab bag' challenge.  The taped element was a GOOGLY EYE.  OMG.  I rocked it. ;)

I love the Bellagio in Las Vegas.  The displays are so peaceful.

Weekend in review

It was great being home this weekend after a short trip to San Diego for work.  The only personal highlight was the evening view from my hotel room and breakfast - we need a Broken Yoke Cafe up here!  Somebody do it! LOL.

Saturday I went to the annual scrapbooking garage sale in Mountlake Terrace to see my scrappy friends and pick up some goodies.  Andrea Ancich, Kim Holmes, and Christina Clouse were just a few of the ladies making that sale run smooth as butter!  It was mayhem up in that place - so many people stopped by to get some great deals!

On the way back we stopped at Nordstrom to get Aurora's feet measured and pickup some shoes.  She is a whopping size 6 toddler, and is now the proud owner of some purple high-top Keens.  She also had a great time pushing her stroller; here is the star of the morning:

This girl is NOBODY'S passenger. :)

Tonight I am going to focus on getting my scrap room cleaned, and maybe start some Valentine's Day cards. With cupids, hearts and love on our minds, I'll sign off with a few lines of a classic Tom Jones tune: "love is in the air, everywhere I look around...Love is in the air, every sight and every sound..."
