Clothes Pin Frame

So I have all these adorable pictures of my grandson from the pumpkin patch but with all the other holiday activities and obligations I have not had enough time to get them in the scrapbook.  I want to display them while it is still autumn and before we start pulling out all the Christmas decorations.  I found a great frame at Pier 1 that can hold and display them until I can get them in the scrapbook!  This is so cool!

Apple Themed Holiday Luncheon

I belong to a wonderful Tuesday morning Ladies Bible Study.  I shared our Picnic Themed End of the Year Luncheon HERE and wanted to share this one with you too.

This apple tree was rather simple to make.  I used a large Styrofoam cone and green wooden picks from the floral department of the local craft store.  I layered the apples sticking the picks in the apple first then into the cone.  Then I filled in the gaps with cedar, juniper and rosemary from my yard.  I used the small 2 1/2 in diameter Lady apples and a Granny Smith on top.  It not only looked pretty it made the room smell very Christmasy!

Gobble Gobble

Staying up late tonight trying to get the photos of my grandson preserved.  He'll be two in January and I still have not finished his first year scrapbook.

To create this layout I used Harvest Gathering Stack by DCWV and Cricut Create a Critter

Halloween Scrapbook Page

I couldn't wait to print and scrap my adorable grandson in his Halloween costume.

To create the page first I used a printed scrapbook page from the Recollections Boo Who paper pack.

Then with my Cricut machine I made lettering with coordinating paper

and stuck them down with the Xyron sticker maker.

I used my favorite cutting tool from Creative Memories to cut the photo and photo mat in an oval shape

Finally I added a little journaling so I won't forget my grandson's little friend's name and was done!

Happy Scrapping!

Backing Up Those Precious Photos

I have just spent the last 7 hours backing up my photos to DVDs  from my laptop.  It's been on my to do list for a year now!  I am so behind not only is saving my photos but also my scrapbooks.  My grandson is almost two and I am only on his 6 months page.  I can say yes I've been busy living life and making memories but I want to preserve those memories too.  Hopefully I have learned my lesson not to procrastinate when it comes to my photos again and I hope I have encouraged all of you to backup your photos too.  A computer crash can completely destroy all those precious photos.  Don't take the risk!
