New Boots!

I used some really old stickers from AMM- All My Memories for the border along the side and that sticker border is what inspired the colors for this layout.The Guitar pic was also from AMM. I used some CTMH Epoxy Bubbles and I cut the title and flowers out with my Sizzix. I was not at home when I made this layout( Camping- that is how long ago I made this one) so I used a bowl to trace a circle and cut it out. Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy New Year!

So here we all are. We did our Christmas a little early this year so that everyone could be there. I always insist on pictures. It was quite a job to get everyone in and get the timer set on the camera. Even the dogs made it in our picture!
This is my oldest son and his girl. We think she is great!
 This is my middle kid, his wife, and my granddog.We are so lucky to have her as part of our family!

And last the dogs. Cheewy, Izzy, and Jango my granddog. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas and thanks for stopping by.

Last Chance! and Merry Christmas

  Wow I have been gone for awhile! We have been really busy getting ready for the holidays, working, and Krista's school stuff. I am hoping to be able to do some crafty stuff on my days off at Christmas. Please, Please, Please!  For this Christmas layout I cut the title with my Cricut from the Craft Room. That is the online site for Cricut. The paper is Serendipity and Believe. I also used the level 2 Assortment, Mistletoe. I used a Sizzix die to cut the snow flake.

  This month is the last chance to order out of the holiday pamphlet and then all that stuff will retire. (Sad Face) But I have gotten a look at the new one and I see some exciting things coming out. If you want to get your hands on the Nevermore, White Pines, or the embelishments to go with them shop now. I hope you are all well and thanks for stopping by!
