I struggle with Christmas layouts, not sure what this layout it missing but something is.
Anyway I running a challenge at HTH from June 10t to July 10 come join us there and have some fun.
OH if you have any tips to help me on my Christmas themed layouts I would totally love to here them.

Simply Amazing

here is another stab at me trying to simplify my work. I am pretty happy with this one. I had to take picture of it tho. it just wasn't scanning well.. thanks for looking. love to here any comments you have.

I've been really working hard on simplifying my layouts, I'd like MORE simple and WOW in my work, I want it to be about the pictures and the feel. I think for awail there I was getting to hung up on over embellishing and it was becomeing more about the "STUFF" than the pictures and memories. So I'm focusing on that more and getting there I think.. what do you think?
thanks for looking and would love the any comments
Oh and I'm looking for a sweet poem to add where the journaling should be but I haven't found one that fits yet.

Silly Banana Business

Based from a sketch, and done for a recipe challenge, this is my take on it all! It was a really fun layout to make and of course my son this my most favorite topic to scrap.. thanks for looking

Sorry it's been a wail since I updated here, but the end of school is near and life is Full. The newest most exciting thing in my life is my Cricut Expression machine arrived at my door yesterday and WOW this the cutting machine of all time.. it's all that and more.. This baby will cut chipboard, cut as small as 1/4 and as big as 24 inches, it will cut to fill your page, yep if I want to cut multi images I just select the image and size then push the "fill page" button and it will cut as many as will fit on the page AND it figures out how many to cut all by it's self, now that is one really awsome feature. The 12x24 mat size is also pretty cool, you can put two sheets of 12x12 paper on that mat and it will cut it as a two page layout witch will come in handy. I can have one half of an image on one side and the other half of the image on the other and since it cut it side by side it will match up perfect. Not to mention the cool scalloped cuts it can do and the tags, bags, and boxes cartridge will be super fun on the Expression machine. I can make a gift bags or boxes in just about any size now. So what all this really means I think, is I will in the long run save so much money on embellishments that it will pay for itself over and over again.
I am already totally smitten with it .. it doesn't talk back or leave the toilet seat up, and it always please me what more can a girl ask for ??
