Serene Snowflakes

This card was stamped using Serene Snowflakes from SU!'s Holiday Mini Catalog. I wish you could see this card in person. It really sparkles. I sponged the punched snowflake with champagne shimmer ink and it looks awesome! Color combo: Soft Suede, Kraft

Happy Three Months Landon!

Landon is three months old today! Time has certainly flown by and he is growing up fast. He coo's, smiles and is just one happy baby. He is most alert and talkative in the morning. This last week he has learned to hold his hands together and loves to blow little saliva bubbles. Today he weighs in at 14 pounds and is 24" long. This just means that Landon is now using #2 diapers.

SU! Simply Scrappin' Christmas Jingle

I spent the last couple of evenings playing with the Christmas Jingle scrapbook kit by Stampin' Up! I just went for it. I created a stack of spreads(16 or was it 18 spreads) and two single pages to complete a 6x6 album. Now, I just need to take pictures during the holidays and can't to add the pictures.

Several sample spreads.

Believe it or not...this was all that was left from the kit.

Delightful Decorations

Had a little time to play with SU!'s Delightful Decorations from the Holiday Mini Catalog. It was fun to use the coordinating Ornament punch, what a timesaver. Love the idea of turning the Ornament punch into a vase.

Landon's First Visit to Disneyland

Trick or Treat 2009

We went shopping for Landon's first Halloween costume and we thought this would be so much fun. Though we thought it was simply adorable, Landon wouldn't have any of it. I believe there were several was extremely hot, probably uncomfortable and he was not able to move his legs. Oh boy, we returned this costume but managed to sneak in some photos. Norm and I got Landon a new costume but haven't tried it on him yet. We'll see how that goes.

This was one of two spreads that we put together in my scrapbooking hostess club. If you're interested in receiving materials to-go, I'd be happy to send them to you. For more info, please send me an e-mail.

Stampin' Up! materials: Just Jawing stamp set, Night and Day Specialty Designer Series Paper, On Board Letters, Top Note, Chunky Glitter, Silver Brads and Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon

Landon @ 11 weeks

Landon was 11 weeks this last Sunday. It is such a joy to be taking this time to bond with Little Landon. He weighs a whoppin' 12 pounds and intakes 25-30 oz a day. The evening at this point are quite easy. I guess it has always been kind of easy, except for the one mid-morning feeding - that will always be tough.

Norman gives him a bath around 5:30/6pm and then he takes 6-7oz of milk before he snoozes at 7pm. He generally will sleep til about 2am, we'll change him, feed him another 4-7oz and he'll snooze til about 7am. His three feedings during the day are generally about 4-5 oz...and his naps can be as short as 10 minutes and as long as 80 minutes. But any nap beyond 35 minutes is rare for the little guy.

He loves hangin' out in his crib, watch the mobile spin, along with the colored lights and the sound of the music as he does arm circles and cycles his legs up in the air. Oh, let's not forget the cute little cooing noises he makes. Simply adorable.

Demonstrator Hostess Club (October 09)

Love the clean, crisp colors and layout of this mini album.
SU! stamp set: Trendy Trees. Colors: Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Chocolate Chip.

Beautiful card with a little suprise inside, so simplel and easy to create. SU! stamp set: Le Jardin Botanique. A very lovely stamp set. The patterned paper is from SU! Simply Scrappin' Kit Tailor Made. Colors: Not Quite Navy, Chocolate Chip and Always Artichoke.

Fun, fun, fun! Another look a the Sweet Centers stamp set from Stampin' Up!. Instead of candy in the sweet treat cups, we filled it with spiders!

These great projects were created by Theresa Argonza-Gomez. Thank her for sharing these great projects with us and for the yummy croissant sandwiches. Not to forget the caramel apple too!

Our Saturday

I sat down tonight and played with Stampin' Up!'s latest product...My Digital Studio. Very simple and easy to use. I was going to simply post the pictures but figured that I should put it into a layout.
