My Mind's Eye team was asked to contribute to the NEW Scrapbook Generation's Digital Magazine, CREATE! It's a wonderful publication full of inspiration. This is actually their second issue, and let me tell you that it is fabulous. AND if you are a sketches person like myself, then you will be tickled pink to see that there is PLENTY of sketchy inpiration just waiting for you in each and every issue.
Each of the MME's team members were sent two sketches to work with. I was chosen to work with the Double Page Sketch and the Card Sketch. Here is a little peek of my doubler that I created.

I have a little something up at the My Mind's Eye Blog today. You can find more HERE. I thought it would be fun to document something other than a typical week in the life with project life, so I went with our adventure of finding and decorating our Christmas tree this year.
Our adventure started on Friday evening when Elsie got home from school. We hit the road to find our perfect Christmas tree. The kids pretty much just love running through all the trees, and this year was extra special because it was snowing; not that it doesn't snow here, but it is usually a mucky mess when it comes to early December.
For the top little journaling card, I wanted to include a little something from the kids. They love to talk and talk and talk.... to say the least. So, I included a couple of quotes that they had said. When I took this picture, I hadn't had them sign their quote yet. They were off to school already, but as you can see from the first picture, I had them sign it. I love having their own personal touches in the family album.
It takes quite awhile for the master of lights, Chris, to put the lights on the tree. The littles were slightly disappointed, but we didn't get to decorate it until the next morning. But come on, that awesome light job was totally worth the wait! AND we watched A Christmas Story twice then, which is our tree decorating tradition in this house. Sam really looks forward to that!
So there you have our lovely Christmas tree. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year too!
Supplies Used: My Mind's Eye Mistletoe Magic Collection, Becky Higgins G page protectors, American Crafts Memory Marker, Tyepwriter, Bohemian Typewriter Font.
I was so honored when I recieved an email from Laura Vegas asking me if I would be a Guest Designer for August on the Bella Blvd Blog. WOW! I am such a fan of their bright fun papers... of course I jumped at the chance! Here is one of my projects ...
This is my typical seasonal summary page that I like to do for the kids. This one is for Sam, of course, with memories from last summer! If you would like to see more, jump on over to Bella Blvd's Blog HERE.
I have a little project up at the My Mind's Eye Blog today. I created a card set using some of my neglected stamps. I have no idea why I never think to pull them out for projects. I do like stamping, but for some reason or another, they seem to be in the land of the forgotten with me.
