Peyton's Baby Calendar

I have been in Halifax for the past two weeks helping my step daughter and her new baby boy Peyton. While there, when I wasn't hugging and squeezing my new grandbaby, I put together a first year calendar. The ideas for this calendar were totally lifted from the CTMH BB; I didn't save the lovely talented lady's name who put this together but thank you so much!! This is the first month. It was a fun project to do and I finished just before I came home.

Products used: CTMH Heart of Winter paper pack, CTMH Welcome Baby stamp set, imaginisce rub ons.

A Tribute to Charlie

Just before Christmas this year, our dog Charlie got very sick very fast. The awful decision to let him go was heartwrenchng but definitely better for him. Scrapbooking these pages was therapeutic for me as I laughed and cried and thought of the joy Charlie brought to us.

Layout #2 - the companion page

I finished the journaling. I have found over my years of scrapbooking that if I don't completely finish my layouts, they get shoved aside never to be seen again! So along with doing 120 layouts, I have challenged myself to have the journaling finished as well! The ladies at my workshop club loved this layout although it took quite awhile to finish!

Layout #1 - Ripped from the pages....

of the Autumn/Fall 2009 CTMH Idea Book! At the request of one of my workshop friends, we put this page together last night! What a fun night! The pictures are of my grandson Alex jumping off the body of the second snowman being built on Christmas Day. We were afraid that this was going to be a green Christmas...we were surprised and delighted to enjoy the snow! This layout is right out of the Idea Book, using Magic Moments paper pack, Indian Corn Blue, Olive, and Vineyard Berry inks and Just for the Holidays ss. My friend Roz, and fellow challenge participant, joined us via Windows messenger and webcam. As soon as I finish my journaling, I'll post the 2nd page.
