Halloween Layout - 2015 (ft. Julie Nutting/Graphic 45 Rare Oddities)

Here is a layout I have been working on for a while. I like the bookshelf 12 x 12 page from Graphic 45's Rare Oddities paper pack. For this layout I wanted to keep it intact, what better way than to make it the cover page, so I cut it in half and placed it in Flip Flaps.

Now for the unveiling of the inside... Here I used Julie Nutting stamps, Adam and Aurora. The patterned paper is from the Graphic 45 paper packet. The "Happy Halloween" was in my stash of stickers, probably from Michael's.



Enjoy!

Flour Babies - 2015 Family Portrait

The flour baby project for 2015 is underway. The freshmen class of nine began tending to the needs of their flour babies on Friday evening. Requirements include keeping a journal and check-in points throughout the night (Fri and Sat at 10 pm, 12 am, 2 am, 4 am 6 am; school nights 8 pm and 10 pm). All of the class came in this morning a bit tired from the weekend lacking in rest.

Christmas Card #5 - 2015

And the final... Card #5 for the November 5th card workshop (Christmas themed). Saw this great idea on Pinterest and thought it was the best idea for using up the scraps remaining after the other four cards were created, and cut out for the workshop attendees. Fun card! Thanks Pinterest poster for the idea...

Christmas Card #4 - 2015

Relaxing this evening after two great days of paper crafting with my mom, Lydia. When we are together, the creativity in the room can be quite amazing. We have crafted together for as long as I can remember. One craft I really enjoyed when I was in elementary school was pom pom animals. I would sit on the floor of our Navy housing apartment while watching TV and create animal after animal. Great times! Thanks mom for the creative side in me, brainstorming through card ideas, and great conversation and memories.

This is card number 4 for the November 5th card workshop (Christmas themed).
