So much to catch up on...

They're cute aren't they?

I had so much fun taking pictures for them before Prom...and I can't wait to get to my scrapbook table with these pictures...never pass up the perfect opportunity to put bling on a layout with my favorite son in it! I don't even think he will object this time. *smile*

My favorite picture...and the cool thing is that he doesn't even know that

he would put Tom Cruise to shame with those shades and that smile.

Here are a few layouts I have been working on lately...

I am totally in love with my Cricut Expression. When you add the Design Studio (on my computer) -- you have the ability to create your own shapes and cut full page images. I made this lattice background by "welding" snowflakes together... If you have a Cricut I would be happy to share the cut file -- so just drop me a note and I will be happy to send it to you.

I saw flowers kind of like these in a magazine and had to figure out how to make them. I ended up just using a small square of muslin and folded it from the middle -- kind of like you do a napkin to put it through a napkin ring -- then wrapped some thread around the point and stitched it to my layout. I want to try making a whole bouquet sometime.

Several of our What You Make It viewers have written and asked us to do a show on digital I am working on it. I found some fun vintage digital elements here.

And one more... This one started out with spilt glue...and I didn't want it to go to waste -- so I grabbed a paint brush and spread it out -- then sprinkled glass glitter -- like I had painted with it. I thought it made a fun background for the I just went with it. now that we are caught up a bit...I will promise to be a better blogger.

Thanks for your patience...this spring has just been crazy!
