Happiness is...

Skipping around all over the place and since I had my Valentine's stuff all over my desk, I pulled these fun pictures from the box:

I used the sketch from Lasting Memories#685 challenge, with the added challenge to use some hearts.

Lots of random stuff from the stash - the stickers, the alphas, the Mickey heads, Nuvo Drops and some ric rac.

Love You Forever

 Mid-week working!

I don't usually work on Valentine's Day pages but these pictures of my daughter in this gorgeous red dress at a dance with her boyfriend inspired me to use some stash I had.

I was also inspired to use challenge #684 from Lasting Memories which offered a new sketch and an added challenge to use some tags.

I made my tags from the patterned paper and added ribbon, twine and buttons.
The flowers are layered with buttons and twine.

And I bashed some stash!

 It is currently -11 degrees outside!!  Needless to say, I will be hiding inside the warm house and working on some pages.   No reason or sale can entice me to leave my little bubble!

I started out by working on this page of my naughty kitties:

I just got this kit from Simple Stories delivered the other day.
I love all the bright colors.

All of the fun patterned papers were perfect (purrfect) for this week's sketch challenge at Lasting Memories with the added challenge of using 4 or more patterned papers:

Amazingly, Penny stayed off of my desk and let me finish this page without adding fur to my adhesive.

Celebrating Grandma's Birthday!

 Yes!  My Mom's birthday is Christmas Day!  

Every year, after we finish our Christmas celebration, we wipe out all the Christmas papers, gifts and treats and turn it all into a birthday party!

These pictures are from last year.
Her favorite cake is cheesecake, so we always make sure she gets what she wants.

I used lots of scraps from the Christmas bin.
And I played Tic Tac Toe with Stacy and the Scrappy Friends challenge:

I went diagonally down the board:

Just a few more pictures to work on and I will finally be done with last year's Christmas!

Oh Boy! Our ride is here!

 I tend to keep just about every map, receipt, email, ticket and anything else related to our trips.

I like to make pocket pages and such to add all this information so we can compare pricing and other changes throughout the years.

Here is a pocket page I made using lots of confirmations and pricing research:

And here is the sketch I used from Rochelle's and Stacy's Scrappy Friend challenge:

I have to admit this collection from Photoplay is my favorite and I finally decided to use it and stop hoarding it

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

 Happy holidays!!  Happy New Year!!!  I have set my goals for the new year and I have everything crossed that I stick with it!

Here is one of the first pages I made this year:

I used a new kit from Miss Kate's Cuttables.
I added some tags, stickers and a few punched Mickey heads.

Time to organize my space so I can keep up the creativity!
