A few new Layouts and some Felties!!!

On Saturday night I scrapped a bit with my friend Kristine, and she introduced me to these awesome French sketches! I'm a big fan of Histoires de Pages, and so these really appealed to me! Here is one of the sketches...lots of white space, which normally drives me batty....but I managed to leave it alone this time! LOL This is my awesome friend Nat and her family.... she often calls Felix her "little Dude" tee hee Isn't he scrumptious??? Look at that blond curly hair! So adorable!

Here is one that is near and dear to my heart...the documentation of the last 3+ years for Dave and I...we've been on the road since April 2006, driving back and fourth every weekend between Saint John, NB and Halifax, NS...for those non-locals, that's a 4hour drive :)

We've grown accustomed to the travel time...I often work all day on Friday, get home, feed the cats and I'm on the road by 6pm...arriving at Dave's just before midnight (I often visit my sister who lives at the halfway mark for a pee break! haha!) With the help of cat sitters, fast food, audio books, iPods and netbooks and Blackberries we've made it work...but the time has come for me to move to Halifax :) Yay!!!! So I thought it would be a good idea to do the math and see what the stats are for us...when October Afternoon's RoadBlock collection arrived in the mail, I knew it would be perfect for this layout :)

And here is my super cute nephew Rohan....I can't believe how fast he's growing and how darn CUTE he is!!! Way too smart for his own good....he's giving his parents a good run of it! tee hee

Dave and I took the boys and my parents to New York city a couple of weeks ago...we drove all the way to New Jersey! Yikes! It took a day and a half there and back in the car....and as many of you know, I don't like sitting idle....but I wanted to be able to spend some time with Dave, so I picked up some felt and brought along some of my Whimsy buttons along with my silk threads from my cross stitch stash! These are the things I've made...I have no idea what I'm going to do with them, many are just way to big to add to a layout..but they were super fun to make :)

Until next time!

The Whimsy shop has been keeping me busy lately, thank goodness, because I seem to have lost my scrappy mojo! I scrapped two layouts last night for the first time in AGES! Hopefully I'll have a chance to upload photos this weekend....In the meantime, I just realized I completely forgot to post my Creative Scrappers Reveal Sketch #62 and a mini album I created for my fav 2009 Grad Honor Student (Congrats Em!!!)
