So Relaxed in the Sun Scrapbook page Layout

Hi All,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and know we have the new year to look forward to. I have been extremely busy for the past 3 days as both my husband and I were installing storage cabinets and shelves to our laundry room. It was a very tiring 3 days for the both of us I must say and we are very happy it is over. However, we have even a bigger project coming up on January the 4th as we are having hard wood floors put into all the bedrooms in our home. Lots of cleaning and organizing is heading my way...

Here is a page I did not to long ago of me in the dominican. This page was inspired by a layout done by Jennifer McGuire, you can check out her blog just by clicking on her name.

Here's To You - Scrapbook Double Page Layout

I have many photos from the trip we took to the Dominican. I really liked these two particular pictures cause it makes the perfect double page layout. I did not use the cricut at all but certainly made the most of my stamps, the tag punch and my sewing machine. You may not really notice it but I did a lot of sewing on both pages.

I thought the title was appropriate as both my husband and I have our glasses raised in honor of our best trip ever. By far this was a vacation we will never forget.

We did nothing all day but enjoy the sun, sand, the ocean and the food. I think any trip is more fun when you go with good friends that you get along with so well. We went on this trip with really good friends of ours, and there son which happens to be my son's best buddy. The kids had such a wonderful time. I have no clue when we will take another trip like this again.

I will post more pages from this trip as I create them. Sometimes it's hard to make time for scrapbooking especially now that the kids are on Christmas break for two weeks.

I might have them help me with it cause I need to keep them busy during the holiday season.

My husband and I decided to go hardwood for all the bedrooms and re decorate my daughter's room and the craft room. We went to Ikea this weekend to get some storage ideas and looked at some beds for my daughter. The possibilities and combinations are endless and making the choice is very very difficult. I have a lot of work ahead of me as I need to re organize all closets and get rid of stuff we don't use. Through out the years thing cumulate and start to clutter especially when you don't have proper storage or shelving in the house.

We have many many books that are in the basement stored in bags, but with the floors getting done and storage put in we can organize everything not to mention the toys. I dread cleaning the toys in the basement. Most likely I am going to just give all of them to good will. Well thats all for today. This is the most I think I ever wrote so I hope I did not bore you to much with my home decor ideas. Till next time, happy crafting.

Stamping Bella's Percolator Circle Stamp

This is a 4 1/4 by 4 1/4 card. I used Martha Stewart card Stock for the card base, and to be honest with you I could not believe the quality of this paper, I absolutely loved it and will purchase more of her craft paper... and what about this cute percolator stamp from Stamping bella isn't it warm and welcoming.

I was going through my scrap papers last night and realized there is way to much in my bin. I have to find ways to use them cause I really don't want to throw them out.

If you are wondering about how my Pide turned out last night, it was a smash. There is still some left over for today.

Laughter is a Gift Everyone should open

The weather here in Toronto is icy and cold which is perfect for cuddling in front of the fireplace with a nice cup of hot chocolate and Frank Sanatra playing in the background. The kids are off to school and I have to head out for grocery shopping to make the families favorite Turkish dish, which happens to be Pide. It's made with dough and covered with ground beef, yummy yummy for our tummy....

Lets move on to todays card which happens to be my favorite so far cause I love the color tones. This would make the best card for someone who needs to be cheered up or is going through a rough time.

Thanks for dropping in, until next time happy crafting.

Seasons Greeting

Hello Bloggers, I just got back from Calgary late Monday night and let me tell you it was a wonderful trip. I saw my family for only short 5 days but it was all worth it. It's nice to be back to my own family.

I have to give my sister a big kiss for finding one of the best Scrapbooking stores in Calgary called Scrapbook Paradise. I was like a kid in a candy shop with all the wonderful goodies. I bought gorgeous paper and clear stamps and a punch some ink dobbers, chalk ink and liquid pearls. I will hopefully share them all with you soon on my next post. Today I wanted to share a simple Christmas card I made before my trip but did not post it right away, I hope you enjoy it.
