 Happy Monday!  Christmas is in full swing at my house....we picked out the tree over Thanksgiving as a family and got it all set up!  I'm making a few Christmas cards for the special people in my life, so here is one of them.  I bought a 6x6 paper pack of various tartan plaids to use for the patterned paper on the cards.  I felt like the blue plaid went with snowflakes (I'm doing different designs for each plaid).  Hope you have a great week!

Happy Thanksgiving layout

 Happy Friday!  I haven't crafted much for a few weeks, as I (along with some of the fam) have been sick with covid.  I'm finally feeling better and back in my craft room in time to do some holiday cards and get back to my scrapbooking.  Today I'm sharing a layout I made for upcoming Thanksgiving pictures, using the Create A Critter 2 image collection and the Doodlebug The Great Outdoors paper collection.  I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving-my favorite holiday!

Live Out Loud football marching band layout

Happy Monday!  It's been wonderful fall weather here in KC and we've been driving up to the college football games, watching Son#2 perform with the college marching band for the pregame and halftime shows.   I used some paper from an older Doodlebug collection of football themed paper in the stash and used the Artbooking CTMH cricut collection for the overlay cut and the Live Out Loud title to make a quick layout for some of the many pictures I've taken.  The whole thing came together in about 15 minutes!  I hope you all have a great week!

Birthday Card with old SU sets

Happy Thursday!  Sharing a quick birthday card I made for a friend, using some old SU stamp sets from my stash.  Sometimes I get distracted by my newer products and forget to get out the older goodies and play with them.  My hubby and I have just returned from a week of vacation and I'm feeling the urge to be crafty (I found an amazing scrapbook store on the trip and stocked up on some new paper!).  Hope you all have a good week!

 Happy Monday!  Just a quick layout to share today, using the CTMH Artbooking collection for the overlay cut.  I also cut the font on my cricut, but am not sure what the font is (I downloaded a whole bunch of new fonts, lol).  Hope you all have a wonderful week!

black and white layout

 Happy Labor Day Monday!  While I am working at the hospital all weekend, I hope most of you are getting to enjoy a long weekend!  Labor Day always feels like the gateway to fall for me, although the weather certainly still feels like summer.  (Time to break out the apple cinnamon and pumpkin spice candles, lol!)  We went up to watch Son#2 perform with his college marching band last week at the football home opener and watching college football also gave me all the fall vibes.

I put together a scrapbook layout using black and white paper and prints that is one of those designs that could be adapted for almost any event, so I'm showing it here without a title.  The black and white just feels so classic and I love how it turned out!  It doesn't have any cricut cuts at the moment, but I will use my cricut for the title, which I plan to put along the bottom.

Route 66 road trip layout

 Happy Monday!  It's been awhile-summer has been too busy to get much crafty time.  However, we are back to being empty nesters with the kids away at college, so I have a lot of time to catch up on my craft projects.  This Route 66 road trip layout was made with the Nifty Fifties image collection for all the cricut cuts.  Son#3 had gone on a road trip to visit college friends, so I was scrapping some of his pictures from the trip.  I love the Nifty Fifties images so much, so this was lots of fun to make.  Hope your end of summer includes some fun!
