Jillibean Projects!

Don't tell my boss...but I never shared my Jillibean Projects from October or November here on my blog!

I had fun making this card, trying something new. I took mini pop dots and crushed one exposed end into red flocking for the apples. I use thin micro dots from Plaid for all my projects. They are my favorite brand because they are thinner than most. Just the right amount of pop.

I made this card in about 5 minutes using the Sweet and Sour Pea Pod Parts (diecuts). Love them almost as much as I love Soup Labels!

Finally getting to scrap my end of school year photos. Ah Emmitt my cutie. Already in second grade.

Leftover photos from last Christmas. The entire family was ADDICTED to Just Dance. In fact, our extended family threatened not to come this year if we didn't agree to play something else!

Snow Days at Progressive Field last December. If you live in Cleveland, GO! It's really fun! And I am SO not an outdoor person in the Winter.

My father and Steve and their beloved Browns. Every season is the same, they never give up on their team.

If Max looks funny in this picture, it's because he was holding back tears. He helped coach Cooper's team last year. They lost their last bid in the tournament by one point. Max was so sad...the 8 year old boys were over it in about a minute.

I'll be back soon!!!

Another CK Giveaway!

I'm back from a fantastic weekend spent cropping with friends and family. Trish from WIP Kits hosts the best crop each November at the Bertram Inn in Aurora , Ohio. I look forward to having three days to catch up on my pages and socialize with my gal pals.That's my mom and my friend Dawn (who I have been friends with since 9th grade!) in the bottom of the picture. I was able to put a huge dent in my Disney Vacation book. I got through our 2010 trip and started in on our 2011 visit as well. I was able to make 18 pages. I need to go back and add the journaling and then scan all the pages. I never journal at a crop...I'm too busy talking out loud!
