Dinosaurs! ROAR!!

Monday, January 18th, 2010

I made this for Carter’s room out of dinosaur stickers and scrapbook paper… and a little help from my husband who suggested that I make a volcano and helped with the final positioning of the dinos.  (That husband of mine is a creative guy!)

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

The Creating Keepsakes scrapbooking convention was in the Phoenix area (Glendale, AZ) in early October.  If you’ve never been to a scrapbooking conventions, let me tell you – it is too much fun!  There is shopping at the HUGE vendor faire, classes to take, and crops to attend.So, this picture is one days worth of projects that I did!  Not included are 10 on-page layouts from the Thursday Night Sketches Crop and the cards and 2-page spread from the classes we took on Sunday!

Crazy fun for a scrapbooker!!

2008 Memories

Saturday, January 17th, 2009

I just completed my first four scrapbook pages of the new year!

I am very proud of myself for two reasons…

  1. I completed 4 pages in a week!  Seriously a record.  I am a very, very slow scrapbooker.
  2. I used brads and eyelets!  A first for me!  I even went out and bought some eyelet setters!

My inspiration was the Creating Keepsakes magazine.  And the Creating Keepsakes Convention that I went to last fall.  It has really changed my scrapbooking style.  I’m lovin’ it!

UPDATE 1/7/2008:  A comment from “Mary” provided this website, which creates fonts for free!  Thank-you!

Creating Keepsakes magazine pointed me to this really cool website.  At, you can use your own handwriting to create a font. 

Great tool for scrapbookers!  I can use the font I created for journaling.  It works in Microsoft Word – I can change the size, make it bold or italics, change the color, etc.  And if I make a mistake – just backspace and correct it before I print the final copy!  When I am done, it will be neat and clean journaling in my own handwriting!  Very cool!


Scrapbooking on Sunday

Allison’s first day of preschool.

Notice the pictures of Carter with his “hop-hop” (left) and with the toy vacuum (right).


* In the interest of full disclosure, I have to admit that my scrapbooking was
from a page kit – very little imagine required since it came with all the
supplies and a color picture of how to assemble it.  Allison’s scrapbooking 
came purely from that beautiful little imagination of hers!
