A Journal for Aunt Jeanne

Stampin' Up is making my life so much easier this year for Christmas!!  I created a 12x12 calendar for my in-laws and it's being shipped to them straight from SU....bonus!  Only downfall to that is that i won't be able to see it up close and personal first.  I'm super excited about the calendar because after each month is done, my step mother-in-law will be able to cut off the spiral edge and slip it into her scrapbooks (yes, she scrapbooks so she'll get even more enjoyment out of it besides the beautiful calendar!)

  Secondly, I made my sister-in-law a gorgeous journal that will be sent to her from SU as well.  Once again, though, I would really love to see it in person.  But, that's ok.  I have enjoyed making these items for my family so much this year.  I hope they like them!

I based the journal design from the latest sketch from Cardabilities!  Here's the sketch:

And here's Jeanne's journal cover:

Isn't it gorgeous?!  I LOVE that new DSP from the new SAB catalog coming out!  So consider this a little bit of a sneak peek, too! ;)  And here's the back of the journal:

Ooooh, one more announcement, while I have your attention!  You know the "You're My Sunshine" layout I created a couple of weeks ago based off the sketch at Sketchabilities?  I made the Featured Five on the blog!!!  So, I get to show off this little badge on my blog!  Isn't it cute?!   Imagine my surprise last night when I logged onto Sketchabilities to look at the newest sketch and saw my little layout at the top of the blog!  I was so excited!  So, go take a looksie! 

TFL!  Oh, and no worries, Jeanne doesn't watch my blog, so the Christmas surprise is still intact!

You're My Sunshine

Ahhh....I've been able to sit down and "scrap" here the last couple of days.  Sure, it's been working on other people's Christmas cards, but it's still something I love to do. This morning I realized that I haven't checked out the Sketchabilities blog for awhile since I have been so busy this fall with my photography, it seemed like the perfect chance to sit down and scrap something for myself real quick! 

Here's the sketch:

And here's my layout using a new Stampin' Up MDS kit that I just downloaded this week using Basic Gray and Daffodil Delight for the colors (totally diggin' the gray and yellow lately!)

Pics of my little cutie pies....although, they aren't so little anymore!  I take their pictures every year in September, so these are from that session.
