Santa and French Names

What a title, huh? LOL.

I have 2 more layouts to share with y'all today! The first is one I created using another kit club's papers - gorgeous they are! I journaled just a bit about how my name is Lisette in French (at least according to my 7th grade French teacher) and I titled it the same.

I am so in love with a few things lately. First, the Starbursts from LSG! I love the color and glimmer and I am happy to report that I have not had one clogged sprayer. Next, I am really diggin' those Prima resist canvas shapes. The butterfly on this layout is one of them and I can promise you will see more of them on layouts to come. The third thing I am loving is the new Dusty Attic I just got in from Australia. GORGEOUS! The pink corner flourish is from their new line and I am most impressed.

This next layout is my favorite of the two though. It would figure because it's of my most adorable grandson resting his head on Santa's knee!

The photo was taken at Lander's Photography here in Boerne, TX. We used a groupon for 10 minutes with Santa and got the rights to all the photos that were taken. Christian played along and we got 52 shots! Isn't this photo the most precious? I used one of Florabella's actions on it to give it that vintage feel.

So the dark brown frame is another Dusty Attic piece and both the papers and the poinsettias are from Michaels. I believe the papers are K&Co. I did add some of the Prima North Country roses and also some Petaloo poinsettias and berries that were from last year.

I haven't been scrapping much lately and it feels really good to get back to it!

New Baby

This month at my kit club, C'est Magnifique, we are offering the new 7 Dots Studio line. These papers are TDF!!! (and sorry - but we are sold out!). Here is my sneak peek layout:

This is my daughter and my grandson, just minutes after he was born.

For this layout, I used my newest addiction - the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst in California Poppy Gold. I absolutely LOVE these Starbursts! We have a few left in the store, but I think I need to place another order, lol.

I also really love the little flowers by Wild Orchid. I have noticed more and more people are using lots of flowers on their boy layouts and I'm glad. I love flowers and it's not been easy to create grandson layouts without them, lol.

And for those of you that know me - I dislike banners intensely. So why did I use one here? I just don't know! I had to fill that space with something and those little buggers were sitting there so I used them. I hate to admit it too, but I like it there. I may just have to use them more often (now that the fad is almost over, right? LOL),

So I'll be back tomorrow with some other layouts that aren't kit related. Gotta run now!

A Christmas Book

I took a class with my mom while she was here to create a vintage Christmas book and it was so fun! Here are all the photos (probably not in order, lol)

What fun this was! I plan to do some for gifts next year!

The Scrap Cake at C'est Magnifique Kits!!

I am so in love with everything that Karola Witczak puts out at The Scrap Cake. First her Bright Side of Life line and then Cozy Christmas - oooh la la! There was another line first, but I haven't had the chance to play with it YET.

Anyway, here are the layouts I created with the December C'est Magnifique Kit:

And these four layouts helped me to reach my goal for 2011!!! This is the first year that I have actually reached it. YAY!!!
