The LAST Friends With Flair of 2009!!!!

Wow! Time flies!!! I can't believe we are fixing to ring in a NEW YEAR!!!

Our house is a bustle with activity! The boys will be home soon for 2 WEEKS, Christmas is right around the corner, and we might get SNOW!!! I do not remember a time it snowed before Christmas! The boys are STOKED!!!

My first layout today is my version of Eryn's layout that you can see here. I just LOVED it so I lifted it and made my Prom layout.


Really?? Who gets to go to the prom with their life long sweetie!!!!!

This layout makes me laugh. You must click on it to read the conversation. These guys are AMAZING!!!


Can you tell that I LOVE these little woodland creatures!!

Last for today is my entry for the monthly challenge at MME.


I just LOVE LOVE LOVE that Unity is doing scrapbook kits now!!!! They are AMAZING!! If you haven't gotten one yet... you should!

Well I'm outta here til next year! I want to spend every second with my fellows!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

It's Flair Time Friday!!!

This is my second most favorite day of the week, Thursday is my favorite of course!! :) I love that Unity is a company that lets it's customers shine! It really does make you feel wanted!
I'm starting today with a tag I made using the scrapbooking kit Capture Life and Kitchen Logic.
I'll be wrapping this tag around some home made goodies at Christmas this year.

Second, is a layout. You know I LOVE My Mind's Eye so I couldn't wait to get in on a little contest they are having. And the winner gets their choice of 3 MME COLLECTIONS!!!!!!!! The sketch and all the rules can be found here.

This boy is such a funny sight when he's playing Raving Rabbits!!! I love it!! I used Capture Life, the store KOTM, Le Chic, and the Aug store KOTM in this one.
This gloomy, cloudy, rainy weather has been making it VERY difficult to get good pictures to upload, but it looks like I'd better get used to it. Looks like we will be socked in for quite a while.
Have a great weekend!!!

FWFF Are You Still On a Ippity High????

Oh My Gosh!!!! If you haven't joined in with all the loyal UNITY FANS then NOW is DEFINITELY the time!!!!! They have just started the most FANTASTIC thing ever called IPPITY!!!! Yippee for Ippity!!! Now you can buy Unity's great quality rubber stamps and resale them and MAKE MONEY!!!!!!! How PERFECT! You must check it out!!!
As you know I'm a scrapper. I love preserving those little memories that I'm certain to forget. With that being said I have to plug Unity's Scrapbook Kit. It is the best yet!!!! I absolutely LOVE it!!!

Can you believe Christmas is only 7 weeks away!!!! YIKES!!!! So I've started on gifts and cards. We have roughly 50 people on our Christmas list, NOT including immediate family so every year is filled with lots of home made goodness. Here's a candy dish for a diabetic relative.


And I just went over the existing label with my own for the body wash.

And my first Christmas card of the season! Only A LOT more to go!! LOL!!

Last, but certainly not least. My man got himself a buck last night! I can't begin to tell you how much this meant to him. Way to go Babe!!!!!

Hope ya'll have a great weekend! We will be doing a roller skate bday party and the boys are soooooooooo excited. Wish us luck!!! LOL!

FWF, Birthday Party, and Boys!!!!!

Where does time go?? I know I ask this same question A LOT, but really???? Time seems to slip right through my fingers!
My precious boys are turning 10 Tuesday and I don't know how it happened so fast!! We are giving them their party tomorrow so the house is a bustle getting everything just right.
My boys came into this world too soon on the calendar, but it was the perfect time for God to show us His love and protection!!!

Friends With Flair!!

Wow! What an exciting time of year! We have the twins birthday 2 weeks (we're hitting double digits!!!), one of my dearest cousins is getting married next Saturday, and we have 2 births coming up next month!!! So EXCITING!!! For baby gift #1 I decided to do a little scrap care package. I did a layout for the baby's scrapbook.
If it's a boy...

If it's a girl...

And a handy little book for mommy to keep in her pocketbook to take notes those first few months because we all know there will be no scrapping for a while!!!! :)




I added an envelope for any mementos.

I hope she likes it!!
The Bro challenge this week is perfect for me!! I'm making a recipe box to give away as a Christmas present. Hopefully I'll have some done to show you next week... and I have a few more pages done in Mom's retirement album. So much to do... so little time.
Take care!!!

Another Installment of Friends With FLAIR!!

I'm keeping it short today because the hubby is home sick and I over slept so the twins are home too!! Hope the teacher doesn't stop by my blog today! Ha! ;)
I have a card for you...

And a layout!!! I finally found time to scrap!

I have to admit, I really think my hubby is HOT in this pic. There is something about that motorcycle that just sends my heart in to overdrive. Maybe it's just the fact that I love him soooo much.

Happy Monday!!

I know! It's Monday and I'm posting! Truly shocking!!
I have to share with you my latest venture. I've been going around attempting to sell my handmade cards. I've never been intuitive and certainly never a risk taker, but an uncle has been constantly pushing me to do something with my 'talent' as he puts it. So I'm trying Uncle Dan. I've had a few nibbles, but no bites. I'll keep trying though. :)
Here is a set that I made. I'd love to know what all my bloggies think about it!!








Thanks for looking!!! :)
