2005 Christmas Layouts

Its was so much fun going back 4 year and remembering how little the kids were. They are growing way to fast for me.

Crop to you Drop

I have had a busy week and last night I realized I haven't posted on here for a while. So here I am to share what I have been doing.

The Scrapbook Lane crop started last Wed. and we got over 20 challenges. The crop ends tonight, but you know how it goes when you have a family you don't always get to do what you want. So before I get my house cleaned (while the kids are in school) I'm going to share some layouts I with you.

Before you see the layouts I do want to say I'm not sure if I'm happy with them but there done for now. I'm off to clean now have a great day.

Simple Card

I made this last year, but I wanted to share how simple it was to make.
All I did was stamp and ink the card, put a flower on it, and wrote love out of wire.
