so i am trying out for another dt

over at tallyscrapper, i tried out before and didnt make it so i am attempting again! so we shall see
we had to upload 3 new LO's
so here are my creations
the first one was made for my dt lets scrap
this is my son sean on thanksgiving, it was really hot at my sisters so we took of his shirt!
we used a sketch from jackie (one of our dt's)
i did alot of handstitching

these next 2 pages are for tim's best friends family, i am making them a scrapbook for christmas
here is used a sketch from julie bonner
i handstitched, heidi grace paper and alot of hand cutting
for the frame i cut the circles and cut them in half, i got the idea from the paper the background has that pattern.

ok can u tell i am addicted to handsewing? i used my storytellers kit and cut out the trees and the word believe and more handsewing, i added brads to the center scalloped strip

so i hope everyone is having a great week we are in for some major snow and i cant wait but i do have to figure out when to finish christmas shopping!

happy scrapping!

blog candy alert and some other things:0)

i found this blog that has a very cool rak go and check it out!

ok i did another LO last night, i love looking through magazines for inspiration and my favorite is scrapbooks etc so here is my take!
fall family fun:
this was a picture from sean's first hayride to the pumpkin patch. i tried to find a cute title but didnt see anything
i used circles cut in half to create the border and i used scraps for the background and alot of handstitching!

also exciting news i am going to be an aunt tomorrow, my sister jenny is giving birth tomorrow to my nephew steven edward tomorrow and i cant wait to meet the lil guy!

and i have decided to start making scrapbooking embellies, i want to sell them at a reasonable price because we are in a economy slump and i think its crazy the prices of scrapbook things these days. the first ones to get my things are my design team girls, so be on the lookout in 2009 for my things to be on sale!

thanks for reading and i hope everyone is staying warm!
happy scrapping!
