Fun with Sis



Well, after mooning over so many scrapbook layouts, I decided to to give it a go again.

This is what I came up with. If every layout took me as long as this one did, by the time I expire, I'll only have a handful done! But it was sure fun...I'll have to give it a whirl again soon.

This picture you've seen before, because it's one of my favorites with my sister. I don't have many pictures of myself when I was wee, and I remember this apartment and the fun I had with my sister in our "playroom" in that apartment. I have several memories of those apartments that are warm and fun. In the playroom, we had a small stove, refrigerator, table, and lots of other toys...I remember playing with my sister having so much fun...One very vivid memory (not in the playroom, but at that home) is when we were supposed to be sleeping...instead, the both of us were bouncing on our beds and jumping from bed to bed...and then in came the parents, followed with our shrill screams and laughter as they tried to coax us back into slumber.

I love this layout! That flower is so cute. What a lovely way to document the fun you've had growing up!

Yay! I love this!
I am going to officially start my "first" scrapbook. I know that sound silly since I am crafty... but until NOW (with being pregnant) I haven't had anything really worth scrapbooking! So I am pretty excited.

You know, even if you only get a handful done, they'll each be infused with love and meaning. This one is fabulous.

Big Birthday Celebration

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
