The Joys of the Season

Here is this week's Mojo (#22) for ScrapbookSteals. I took a couple of pictures of my little girl about a week before Christmas. She has been checking out the tree on a daily basis and each time she exclaims, "Whoa!" when it is lit up. She is so cute!

I added some ornaments that I cut out from the Cricut seasonal cartridge for Christmas tags from 2009. I then attached glitter yarn as the strings they hang from. I really like that effect. I wanted to keep the page fairly simple because I wanted the glow from the pictures to stand out. I am quite pleased with how it all tied in together. Ah, the Christmas season :)

Emerald Club!!!

This is the last entry to reach the Emerald Club status. These are pictures that were taken when Erica was 11 weeks old (at home by Bébé Love). My husband's favorite picture is the one all the way down on the bottom. Although, there were so many good pictures, it's hard to choose just one.

For this layout I used rub-ons for the first time and must say I will try to use them again. I like that they can be layered on things and give a soft finish. I am not someone who often works with round items (I am partial to angles), so this layout was a bit hard on me at first. Once I started to space things out, it all came together. So, "Voila!" I have now completed 20 layouts for the weekly Mojos :)

12 Hours of Scrapping

Yesterday I went to an all-day crop and had a wonderful time. I admit that I was having fun socializing, so I didn't get nearly as many pages done as I have in the past (I average between 10-14 pages and only got 6 done). Here is one that I would like to submit for Mojo #19:

These pictures were all taken at the same sitting for lunch and have my little girl in the a onesie that both my husband and I loved. I simplified the Mojo this week. It kind of took on a life of its own as I was doing it.
I also did this next one which is a total opposite colorwise. I just love how soft the overall look is (and the pictures are some of my favorites from when Erica was 11 weeks old):

I am keeping this short and sweet. Those are the 2 layouts I am sharing this weekend. Looking forward to getting more done. Happy Scrapping!
