Angel's Christmas Wishlist

So, I lost my camera. But shh, Santa's bringing me a new one. Meanwhile, I wanted to do a December Daily but without a camera, it's near impossible. I'm settling for more of a journaled December Daily and here's one of my pages so far, detailing Angel's wishlist this year.

I used the great new kit by Trixie Scraps called Presents Everywhere. 

Thanks for looking!

Away in a Manger

Have you seen Trixie's latest collection? I had the pleasure of working with all it's bits and pieces to create a layout about our trip to the Living Nativity, done by our local church. I love the touches of vintage and sparkle.

Family Portraits

Hey everyone, I finally got our family portraits done! Boy it was an adventure. Angel would not look at the camera half the time, then when he did we weren't. Yada, yada. We finally got a couple good ones, but of course he had to hold up his little car to show everyone. Does he ever leave the house without it? No, lol.

Anyway, I scrapped these photos with the fabulous December 2012 Templatetopia by NMSS Tuscan Fall by Trixie Scraps.

Tis' the Season for Gifting Photo Gifts!

I have been scrapping my little behind off lately, creating many pages for my CTs as well as some awesome new products for Trixie Scraps Designs. My two latest products being, the You Matter and Sweetened Gratitude brag books.

First up, my 5x7 You Matter brag book. Trixie created such a beautiful collection with these colors. It was designed to help you tell the people you love most just how much they matter to you! I filled my brag book pages with a mix of photo slots, an overall blocked design and lots of small element clusters. 

Next up, my Sweetened with Gratitude 5x7 Bragbook. It's just perfect for scrapping those Thanksgiving memories, thankful moments, or just to scrap your autumn outdoor photos. "Sweetened with Gratitude" is perfect for scrapping about all the things you are grateful for and the beautiful, muted fall palette will work well for your Thanksgiving photos, outdoor autumn photos and so much more!  

Don't forget the oldies, but goodies. 

All these would make some great Christmas gifts for your family members, don't you think? Or even for yourself, wink wink. Just plug in those photos you want to remember forever, then send them in to be printed and you'll have yourself a great little mini book to showcase all your memories. I place my printed brag books on my coffee table, on the kitchen counter and I replace them seasonally. I've even created a collage featuring a few of my favorites and framed it for my living room wall. My guests love flipping through them and I always receive grand reviews!

Thankful for You

I just love looking at pictures of my little man when he was such a tiny baby. I decided to scrap these photos of his first Thanksgiving with a new kit by Bella Gypsy and new template set by Little Green Frog Designs. The colors were just perfect, and the template allowed my clusters to form freely with ease! 


Thanks for looking!

Monkey Business: Another Halloween Layout!

Last year for Halloween, we struggled a bit to decide what Angel would be. At age 2, he couldn't exactly choose for himself just yet. But since he is such a silly little man, taking after his Daddy we decided he would be Money Business (Or for technical terms, a Monkey in a Business suit). It took me a while to find a good Money costume but I got a great shirt and vest from a local consignment store. I also made him a little brief case, using duck tape and an old snack box. Anyway, his costume was the surely a hit. I hope you like the layout I made!

Once again, I used One Haunted Evening Collab Kit by NMSS

One Haunted Evening!

I'm not sure about you, but I love this time of year! The air gets crisper, the leaves start changing and out comes the Fall and Halloween themed kits!! Trixie and Connie worked together and once again have created such a beautiful kit. It's called One Haunted Evening, and it's the perfect mixture of elegance and spooky, but yet versatile enough to be used for many different themes other than Halloween! Some of the CT girls used it to scrap Wedding photos and even family portraits!

Here's my layout, using a Little Green Frog Designs template.

Dare to Be Super!!

Angel's party was a success! He loved playing superhero with his custom cape, mask and "Archangel" emblem that we made for him! One of the photos from the party was just too perfect that I needed to scrap it. Dare to Be was such a perfect kit to use too. I hope you like it! 

Dare to Be Super,

Secondly, I scrapped the photos from our trip to the zoo a few weeks ago. We took Carina along with us for the day and she and Angel just loved it. In Bird Valley, there were little mice running around, hiding when anyone got close. The both of them got down to see them run back and forth. They also loved following the peacock around, but when it got too close, they'd giggle and run away. 

Seek Adventure,
using Yet To Be by Bella Gypsy Designs and Rainbow Love Affair Templates by Little Green Frog Designs

Thanks for stopping by! 

Little Ladybug!

Have you seen Trixie's latest kit? It's called Little Ladybug and my, it sure is adorable!! One of my longtime CT team members Carrin just gave birth to her baby girl Quinn and this kit was dedicated to her, isn't that sweet?

I decided to make a layout using an older photo of my sister. She was such a giggly, rambunctious toddler! I hope you like it!

Off to School!

It's Back to School season again. I cannot believe my Angelito is turning 3 next week!! It's such a bittersweet feeling to know that he is growing up. I still feel like it was just yesterday when he was a tiny baby boy, and now he is bursting with energy and brings such joy to our lives! Anyway, our little man is turning 3 and starting preschool! I choose to send him to a Bilingual Preschool near my workplace. I am excited for him and can't wait to see what knowledge and stories he comes home with. I created this layout to portray the important stepping stone of going to preschool in his little life.

I used the such fun kit of Trixie's called Apples for Teacher Kit.

I have also created this Bragbook, to commemorate the school years of your little one. It's the perfect size to fit into your purse. Add your photos, print and carry it around displaying the moments you'll never want to forget! 

Thanks for looking!

Have you seen Trixie and Connie's latest kit called Everybody Fights Sometimes? I'm just in love with it!

 I made this layout about Angel when he was 18 months old. I remember these days so strongly and I wanted to record the great memories while I could. Thanks for looking!
