"Bring On The Bling!"

The following 4 layouts were from the class that I had at my local scrapbook store last night. I used all kinds of bling, from metallic paper, to gems to glitter.....lots of glitter! The titles are a bit funky for a class so I tried something new and have left the place for a title blank so that they are able to choose their own. I always like to have funky titles on my pages so why wouldn't my students. Right?

I would recommend the title go in the upper left hand corner of both of these untitled layouts.....hey by the way while you are looking, what should I title the one with Gracie at the pumpkin patch? I just can't decide because the layout really isn't very "pumpkinish" if you know what I mean.
So if you took my class last night...Happy Scrapping and if you are just here for a visit enjoy :)

Gracie's Birthday

This past weekend was Gracie's 6th Birthday party with 8 of her friends. It was a princess tea party with crafts and a fashion show. It was the cutest thing! My mom was showing them how to drink their "tea" (also known as apple juice) with their pinkie up. For the fashion show we even had a curtain for them to come out of and we played Hannah Montana music for that portion. The rest of the party we listened to the Enchanted Soundtrack because Gracie was Giselle from the movie. Here she is below in her dress. Here is everyone after the fashion show.
This was the best part of the party. I gave Gracie an American Girl doll and as soon as she ripped some of the paper off and the party guests got a glimpse of the box they started screaming. Then when the cover was off of the doll they became silent in awe of the doll. It was pretty neat! i will never forget that moment.
As for scrapbooking. I have been doing some but I think I will submit them somewhere and the other projects are for classes at my local scrapbook store. So I will be giving you a sneak peak of those later. My class that is at the store next week is almost sold out. It is called "Bring On The Bling" using all bling elements. It is going to be a blast. I love using that stuff and having a full class is so much fun as well. I will post those layouts from the class on that day. If your coming I look forward to seeing you there.....and hey don't be afraid to post a comment. So many people tell me they look at my blog but I don't get to many comments. Feel free to say HI!!!!!!

My Kids and a new layout
My kids have delighted me with some cute photos over the past few days. Gracie had her parent observation at Dance class on Monday. Can I just say she is so stinkin' cute when she dances!!!!
Poor little Q has been sick with a viral infection that turned into a double ear infection. So this is what I see of him most of the time. He is getting better but still in need of the nuk, blankie and cuddles with Mom.
Here is my most recent page. I just love this picture of Q at 6 months. The jounaling reads You...are my breath of fresh air, are my sunshine, don't sleep though the night, put everything in your mouth, are so cute, are loving baby food, like to be in the bathtub, are a sweet pea, give kisses, adore your big sister, are not a big fan of green beans, have the sweetest little feet, are six months old. It was a pretty quick layout to do.
As for me. I have been sick myself. I think we all seem to pass it around at this house. It usually starts with Gracie then Q and then to me and maybe back to one of the kids again and then back to me. It gets so frustrating sometimes. But I guess I just have to keep my chin up and scrapbook all the stress away. I will show all my pages when they are done. Although I am thinking about trying out for Memory Makers Masters this year and you can not post those layouts online at all. So I may not post a lot for a while put will still try to get some projects in that I can share.
