Busy Busy Busy!

Wow! The countdown is on, and I think I'm *just* about ready for the big day! One more gift to finish, and another to purchase! This time of year always has me in a bit of a frazzle, rushing here and there, trying to get through my to do list....I've decided to slow it down this weekend while I'm in Halifax visiting Dave and not to worry so much about that "one last thing".

Here is the album I made for Dave's Dad, filled with photos of Dave and the boys :)
Rose Moka Paper(awesome Canadian company), AC Puffy Alphas and Basic Grey Chocolate album and of course, button by My Little Bit of Whimsy!
I hope you all get the opportunity to take a moment to *slow it down* this weekend and really enjoy the season.

Cheers for now, and I promise to have photos of all the gifts I've made this year!

Dog Gone Cute!

I was quite nervous this was the reveal for the Creative Scrappers Guest Designer... please visit the site and give some love to all the other wonderfully creative layouts posted! They are all so inspiring!

Here was my take on this week's sketch, one of my favorites photos of the dog that lives next door: Buck. I'm not sure what kind of dog he is, (part Shepherd I imagine) or how old he is...but this dog is one of the kindest souls I've ever met. During the summer months, I walk him around our neighborhood when I get home from work (with the owners permission of course! LOL) and we visit all his favourite spots.

Papers: October Afternoon, Alphas AC Thickers, and Button: My Little Bit of Whimsy

Thanks for visiting!

ps Isn't the new blog PHENOMENAL! Kristine changed it today, and I absolutely LOVE IT! The owls were cute, but she was right....this design is more me! Thanks K!!!

12 days until Christmas....

and I'm still working on my gifts! Why oh why do I always wait until the last minute? I'm about Half way done my shopping and gift making, and then on to the dreaded wrapping. Have any of you attempted to wrap gifts with 5 cats in the house? I usually end up shutting myself up in the spare bedroom, otherwise Seymour will start to eat the paper and Gabe and Bronte will want to sleep on top of it! Pure Chaos!!

If you're reading this, that means you've found me without any difficulties! Yay! I thought it would be best to create a separate *personal* blog, with my day to day scrapbooking related postings and layout photos...and keep the Whimsy Blog dedicated to the goings on with the shop, especially for the new year when I announce my mini design team! Huge shout out to Kristine for creating this AMAZING blog....she has such an eye for this blog decorating! Thank You!!!

Saving my big news for last.....
I've been chosen to be on the Creative Scrappers Design Team!!!! Wahooooo!!! I'm honored, thrilled and a little bit terrified, all at the same time. I'm in the company of some VERY creative Scrappers!!!! I can't wait until our first assignment in the new year!

a Fun Weekend!

Hi Folks!

Just getting ready for Christmas lately, and all the projects I've been working on are I can't post photos of them until the big day :) Kristine and I had a wonderful day on Saturday visiting a new local Scrap shop that just opened Scrapbooking Gone Wild, and then we scrapped until 2am!!! It funny though, although we chat the night away, we scrap well together and get lots accomplished.

I made a few buttons last night, but haven't had the chance to photograph them yet (see above elf duties) Hopefully I'll have the shop updated tomorrow night :)

Until then, Steph
