Over the past year or so, I have gone from scrapbooker to card maker. I'm not sure how it happened, it just did! I think it's partially a time thing. I can make a card, photograph it and post it here on my blog in an hour or less. Where as, with scrapbooking, a layout can sit on my desk for a day, sometimes multiple days. It's also harder, when trying to go back and forth between stamping and scrapping too. I have gotten into a groove with my cards. I love stamping, using a variety of images and the satisfaction of getting it done in a short period of time!!! So, my scrapbooking has been put on the back shelf...Until now!

I spent the better part of Sunday working on a project with Conner for school. He has to make a timeline of his life. Out came the scrapbooks, we spend hours laughing at the silly things the boys did as baby's and crying at some of the sad things too. I am so happy that I have documented all of these milestones and moments. I have written our story...and I NEED to keep doing it!! I got that itch to scrap again, boy it's been a LONG time. I started with a CAS (well, there's a surprise, LOL!) layout using some pictures I took this fall for our Christmas cards. I was able to incorporate some stamping too, which really excited me! I layered punches, used buttons and added a spritz of log cabin smooch in the upper and lower corners. I'm thrilled with the outcome.

What do you think of my first layout since May of 2010? (I did one for Xmas for my Mom, but it was almost a complete CASE from the Holiday Mini!)

Stamps: For All You do (brackets)
Ink: Chocolate Chip & Crumb Cake (for distressing)
Paper: Sahara Sand, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Brights Patterned Paper Pack
Accessories: Decorative Label & Modern Label Punches, Linen Thread, 1 1/4 E. Espresso Striped Ribbon, Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, Misc buttons & alphabet stickers (non SU!)
