I can't top Saturday's picture of the day for cuteness (LOL) but don't these look yummy!

I like to bake cookies on Monday's so Tucker has cookies for his lunch for the week.
My Grandma would be so proud :) she almost considered it a "sin" to put store bought cookies in my lunchpail.
I'm off to eat just one more.
ok, maybe two.

My New Favorite Picture

One of my 365 pictures from this week.

Gracie and I had a girls day out with lots of shopping, lunch etc. you know, all the things a 3 month old loves (lol)
She was sporting her sunglasses, and looked too cute.
I can't wait to scrap this one!
(p.s. how are all of you doing on your 365? I haven't missed a day yet, but I did have to take a picture at 11:45pm one night when I almost forgot)

We think the computer is finally ok. So happy for that!
Now here's some of the layouts I promised. Again, these are all quick and simple, but they are done, and in her scrapbook!
(I'm still having so much fun using all these girly colors! After 21 years of just having boys, and using "boy colors" on all my layouts, this is just too much fun!)
*be sure to click on the layout for a close up view!

I'm Back

I'm back...
Well, kinda.I've been without a computer for over a week now due to a virus.
One more scan tonight should verify that the virus is gone.
Keep your fingers crossed.
The whole family has been sharing my 8 year old's computer.
It hasn't been pretty lol
Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow and can post all the layouts I've done recently.
Yep, I've gotten quite a few layouts done this past week since the internet hasn't been an option.
Maybe I need to be computer-less more often.
My scrapbooks would thank me ;)

So how about this rain?? I'm loving it! It was so nice to stay inside today all nice and cozy with the fire going. I scrapbooked for a few hours, and got 13 layouts done! They are all very simple, but it's 13 layouts completed.
Here's one I did for little Miss Gracie.

Yep, the color is off, but since the sun never came out today, it made for lousy picture taking.
I hear there is more rain coming.
Bundle up and enjoy your week!

CHA part 2

One of my favorite things about going to CHA is the inspiration. Walking from booth to booth, your head just spins with ideas. I like to take my camera with me to not only capture images of what new products are coming out, but for the inspiration to start creating as soon as I get home.
Here's a peek at some of that inspiration that caught my eye...
This photo carousel in the 7 gypsies booth.I can't wait until these come out! I am sooo doing this! (see the old spoon hanging from it!)

This layout inside of an embroidery hoop. I can't wait to do this with some old photos of my grandma. What a cool way to display a layout!

These handmade flowers in the Chatterbox booth were so fun. What a great way to use your scraps of paper, and so quick to make too!

The Graphic 45 booth was a dream to just walk thru. Vintage fun in every corner. I love the display made out of wire and an old frame.
How about these rub-ons added to an old chandelier crystal. Wouldn't that look cute hanging off of a mini album!

So these are a few things that caught my eye.
Hopefully they are some inspiration for you too!
