For those of you that know me IRL you know I am not a real 'confident' scrapper, I have been asked to teach a couple of projects I did but I am not real good at 'putting myself OUT THERE' lol So you will be totally shocked to learn I am trying for a spot on Flergs CT!!! YEP can you believe it, Carma, Valerie, Laura when you read this you guys are going to go into shock! lol ha ha Even if I don't make it, I am still really happy with the layout :) How could I go wrong after all I have a cutie to use photos of and lots of fun goodies to scrap with! Amber and I are going to scrap this weekend, I am TOTALLY looking forward to it. Seems like it has been forever since we have taken a play day.
Kaylie was such a hoot tonight, she kept making a frownie face, then she would laugh. We were all cracking up, which of course just made her sillier!
Flergs Strawberry delight kit - Chocolate Berry Glitter Style
Everything is by Flergs except for the staple which is by Katie Hadfield, I recolored the ribbon and put some of Flergs 'bling' on it but it is so small I am not sure if you can even see the bling! I used an Atomic Cupcake Action on the word-art and a bit of a Jason Gaylor(Designfruit) brush

I missed the kiss so I said, Oh Kaylie give Grampa another Kiss, which she promptly leaned over and gave Paul another smackaroo! I just love it when I catch precious moments like this :)
Yep, ya just have to deal with my sweet sentimental photos today :)

I decorated an entire tree for the Nursery one year with white teddy bears that I either put poinsettia 'collars' on, little red jackets or had them holding small wrapped packages. When the tree came down at the end of the Christmas Season I grabbed all my bears! Now they live on our tree at home during Christmas. We always have a noble or a silver tip so the big bears are great for filling in any 'open' spots!
This is what I would see before I headed up the stairs for bed at night
This one just makes me giggle!
I was so dang disappointed this year when Basic Grey didn't come
out with fun seasonal rub-ons :( Now I wish I had stocked up on the old ones.
Every year I have to make some kind of ornament, it is just not Christmas unless I do! This is one of my 'Hybrid' projects before I even knew what 'Hybrid' was! lol It was a super super simple ornament but when you add a bit of clear diamond glaze over a few places it really gave it some pizazz!
Back in my painting days I made a batch of these!
A little slice of my tree, a painted snowman from my friend Julie, one of my tiny bears. A painted sleigh by my Momma (still miss you like crazy Mom)
My candle stick Santa's, a great find at Costco a couple of years ago!
The Angel letters on my stairs. They are really Shabby Chic and I totally found them by accident 50% off. Totally tickled me!!
Kitchen decorations, this is a Hurricane Lamp that was a Gift from Mark and Jini about
4 or 5 years ago. I have always really liked it, but this year it really just 'fit'
and looked so cool in my kitchen!!This is something I have always wanted in a kitchen! lol It might be silly but I have always wanted 'floating' cabinets so I could put fun stuff on top of them! LOVE LOVE LOVE ITI had to leave you with this photo. We picked this up at the Saint Mary's Christmas Bazaar about 5 years ago and I think it is so appropriate. We need to remember that it is all good and fine to enjoy the fun Decorations of the Season but always always remember
the true Reason for the Season!
WHEW are you on overload now!! :)

These pretty little cookies are another new one for me this year. I picked up this idea from Valerie Fowler, I love that they are cute and tasty! My Grandmother was here this year during Christmas and she unwrapped all the peanut butter cups for me. Which of course saved me a bunch of time, oh and remember my Gramma is 95!! :) Paul was my taste tester for this and he gave it a thumbs up! He is a fan of Chocolate and peanut butter, which is not high on my list so yep another 'safe' one for me
One year I made these chocolate covered Cherry balls, I got the recipe from my long time face friend Andrea. Let me tell you, I only made them one year. They were soooo good, oh my gosh! The big problem was THEY WERE TO DANG GOOD!! lol I think I ate 3/4 of them and no I am not kidding. YIKES Whew, never never made them again either. :)
