New Camera!!!!

I finally broke down and purchased a new digital SLR. It's a Cannon T1i. It's a serious camera, so I'm gonna need to take some lessons to get the full potential of the camera. Anywhooooo, I took my camera to visit my brother, his new house, and baby this past weekend. I have to admit even with the automatic setting, this camera is pretty awesome!!

My Brother and Daughter........

My Brother and Niece.........

All three......

My Mom & Nephew

this is the good stuff in life!

Scrappin Days!

Here are a few more pages I've made.....

I made the majority of this page at Marisa's house a few weeks ago, but when I came home I added the ghost images from my very favorite Stampin Up set "Haunts & Howls" {retired}.

This second layout is my family at Gracie and Gaby's quincenera in 2008. Unfortunately Santos was not in the picture because he had to work that weekend and didn't join us for the trip down to Poplar Grove.

I love scrapbooking. I also love re-living the memories as I put the pages together.

Just Some Scraps

Today I had attempted to clean up my craft table a bit. However, when I saw all the scraps on my desk next to some quickutz dies, I felt the need to make some embellishments and then a couple of cards using my embellishments.

The cards came out very simple, but they were so quick to put together once the flower embellishments were put together. I love using my scraps because it makes me feel good to use up all those little pieces of paper joy!

I may have to make several more of these and give them away to my sister who doesn't have time to scrapbook (with 3 kids and a full-time job), but loves to be creative.

Enjoy and have a good nite...Janie

One Page Challenge

Today I issued myself a challenge, I wanted to make 4 3x6 cards from one sheet of cardstock. These were so quick and simple, I may have to rinse and repeat!

I also gave myself brownie points for using some old Amy Butler 3-D purse stickers I had for about a year. Finally I stamped a couple of the backgrounds with PTI sets (Borders and Corners Dot Spots, and Mega Guide Lines).

Last weekend I got together with the 'girls' , Tiffany and Marisa. We all spent the day scrapbooking which was a nice change from our normal routine of making cards. I was so proud of myself because I didn't take a ton of embellishments but rather focused on the pictures and enhanced the pages using patterned paper in many instances.

I did pick up a book on a trip to Archivers titled "Playing With Paper" which was a great inspiration. Here are a couple of pages from the day...
