Thriller Dance LO/My Cuttlebug

This is offically my 21st page this month! I'm so proud of myself! I have finished 3 of my family albums and only have a few pages left to get caught up to current pics! Then of course its on to Disney, and the boys albums, maybe someday I can make my own album. Anyway, here is the latest page I finished up last night. These are pictures from the family picnic at the boys daycare last year. They had Michael Jackson theme and all the boys stole the show dancing Thriller. It was too funny! I used a sketch by Allison Davis http://www.allisonrdavis.blogspot.com/, paper is the eerie collection from Basic Grey, and the Oct. 31st cricut cartridge for the hand.

The sketch...
AND I finally got myself a pretty pink Cuttlebug! It was on my christmas list, but I found a deal I couldnt pass up at hsn.com! I got a bundle with 9 folders and 3 border sets! It's super cool and I'm excited to play with it more!

StuckOnUSketches Challenge (July 9th)

This week there is no sketch. The challenge is stars and stripes. Since I am all out of fourth of july layouts, I did the first layout in my sons baby album I have been wanting to get started for awhile. This album is a little different for me since it is going to be 8 1/2 x 11 horzontal! I am excited to do more pages for this album, it is loonnngg overdue!

My New Favorite LO (this year anyway)

I seem to be on some super human scrapbook crusade to get as many pages done as possible these past few weeks. I finished the page this morning and loved how it turned out! I bought some of the Pink Paislee Queen Bee line on ebay for another layout I am working on, and used the left over to make this page. 9 Layouts left in the family albums to go!

More New Layouts!

I have been cranking out layouts trying to get caught up to this year. I am averaging about a page a day lately! I only have 11 layouts left to do to be completely caught up in my family albums! Yeah!
This layout is of our visit to Wolf People in Idaho last year. I suprised my son with a tour of the facility because he has loved wolves for a few years now. He loves them so much he saves his own money in hopes that he can buy himself a huskey some day, just because they look this a wolf.
This is a layout of the air show they had at the local air force base in 2008. We watched a great Blue Angels air show. This layout is from a Becky Fleck Page Maps sketch.

StuckOnUSketches Challenge (July 2nd)

The challenge this week is to use the sketch AND try to incorporate red, white and blue! I am all out of 4th of July pictures, and I didn't take any this year, so I chose to do a layout of my baby, William. He is 4 years old in this picture, taken in 2003! Ahhh, they grow so fast!

New Layouts

It feels like the boys have been gone forever! They are very good about calling me every other day for an update. I am looking forward to them coming home in 3 weeks. New classes start on monday, I am taking 4 classes (yuck!) this summer to try and speed up graduation. I did have a nice break, got some cleaning done and some pages done! I finished my 2007 family album! Only 15 layouts left to be caught up with family albums. Then I can start working on the boys albums again and my Disney album from this year!
Layout made from sketch 99 at Got Sketch

You may recognize this layout as a variation from last weeks SOUS sketch! :)

From the SOUS sketch I missed on May 7th. I cheated and did a layout from our Disney pics this year!
