I made this LO using the above sketch for Scrappin-n-Chattin. My grandmother gave me this pic for Christmas. It's the only pic I didn't get with my camera the day of the wedding, so I was excited when I saw this pic! The journaling states that "This is the first picture of both families together just before the wedding of Mr Raffael and Helen (my grandmama)." The main background paper is Recollections Floral Patchwork. I thought it fit with this picture symbolizing the 2 families joining as one. The picture is actually all the grandkids and great-grandkids from both sides, but it's still 2 families! The red fabric strips are from a blog candy I won sometime last year. The "summer" brad is from the bottle swap I was in, the floral brads are some I bought from either Walmart or Target as a set with other embellies, the journaling tag is a set I bought years ago as well as the paper mat behind the picture.
I made this LO for the "D is for" challenge with Scrappin-n-Chattin. The journaling states that "Mama gave Kylee Disney Princesses Sparkling Paper Dolls for Christmas. Aino, her Nini, is helping her with them." The paper is Recollections Fairy Tale My Prince. There's a frog under the journaling block, but I covered him up since my niece is just 4 and nowhere near interested in boys like that yet! The stickers are Sandy Lion Disney Princess, the ribbon is Recollections from Michaels- I thought it would fit well with this LO, & the journaling block is from Storytellers Club Pear-Adise. I decided to use sparkly letters for the word "Paper" since Kylee's dolls are sparkly. I don't know if you can see the John Deere tractor, well just the trailer and the little trucks, but her brother is just 1 yr 10 mos older so they play together well. She was using the tractor to pull her dolls in! LOL! Her shirt has "Drama Queen" on it, too, so this paper and ribbon really fits with the paper! She's just starting to talk and cut-up, too. I'm going to try to attempt a 2 pg LO tonight, so be looking back on her tomorrow or maybe after Christmas for a pic of it! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!!

I made this LO for 2 challenges: "Word/quote Challenge" at http://scrapbookchallenges.com/ & Sparkle Challenge at Scrappin-n-Chattin. The picture is as the journaling states under it, "Bowles Christmas tree 2010." The main page is from Recollections 180 pg Christmas pad, the paper under the title and at the top half of the LO is Imaginisce Gingerbread Village. The glitter and bling was given to me in 2 different swaps. I cut out "the most wonderful time of the year" block from the same Recollections pad. The chipboard letters are Ellen Krans that I bought from TJ Maxx, I'm not sure where I got the Christmas stickers, and I bought the star journaling block with some other tags. "All I want for Chirstmas" is from Creative Memories & "my favorite" is from Basic Occasions Punch Out Pack. TFL!

I'm going to a work Christmas party soon and am looking forward to some good food and some fun! We're meeting at Carolina Grille & our meal is going to be paid for by TJ Maxx! I've already heard that we're gonna have cake & cookies made by a fellow associate and our own entertainment by another associate with a ukulele! It sounds like fun!! I hope you all have a good week! TFL!
