Challenge 126--freestyle!

I love months with 5 Saturdays!  That means it's a freestyle week.  And this week I have an adorable mini album to share.  I bought this little envelope album at a scrap weekend 3 years ago.  I haven't used it because I wasn't sure what to do with it.  These photos were taken by my friend Angela about 5 years ago.  There are about 50 photos and there is no way I could actually scrap all 50, so this made it easy to pick the 5 best, then put the rest in the envelope pockets so they are all together.  I have tied it all together with a ribbon that is glued to the back.  

Front cover without the tie.  I love wood buttons!

My nephew was only 3 weeks old.  He used to be so quiet!  Lol!

It's such a simple way to keep an event with many photos together!  Head on over to and enter your creation for a chance to win a great prize!!

Challenge 125--thanksgiving

Can you believe that we are only 5 days from thanksgiving?  Today I bought milk that expires on December 8.  Wow.  This week we are celebrating the holiday with thanks themed projects.  My project is admittedly short on fall colors, but my family has a lot to be thankful for this week.  We have all been really sick thus past week and many people have helped with meals, shuttling children, and child care.   This meant it is time to make thank you cards!  

I love using this style of flower.  It adds a lot to any layout or card.  Stay tuned this week for a thanksgiving layout.  Hopefully it will be finished tonight.  

Now head over to the main blog and enter your creation for a chance at a great prize!

Challenge 114--due cuts!

This week the HIMCR dr is all about die cuts.  I have a cricut and had big plans to use it this week.  Then I remembered all of the die cut pages I have.  I buy them because they are adorable, but then I never use them because I might want them for another project someday.  Well, I decided that someday might as well start now.  

Sorry about the poor photo quality this week.  Caleb has been sick so it's a get what you get week!  Head on over to and enter your die cut creation for a chance to win one if two cricut cartridges Laurie is giving away!

HIMCR #122--Fall colors

Our trees have finally become beautiful in our little corner of Missouri!  Too bad they are all falling as we've had 3 1/2 inches of rain in the last 3 days.  So, it's time to have some fall color on our blog as well.  This week our sponsor is Template Dreams.  She has beautiful designs.  Go and check her out!

Now, be nice about this today!  This is my first ever digi scrap anything.  Yep.  You get to see it folks!

My nephew Ethan was born almost 5 years ago.  Let me tell you, Aunt Di and Aunt Tasha were excited!  Now he runs around showing me his belly button because he knows the rule is "No belly buttons in Aunt Di's house!"  He's pretty sure that Uncle Tony is the best play uncle ever.  

Now, take yourself over to Hiding in My Craft Room and check out the creations the rest of our great design team did!  And make sure to enter your fall colors creation for chance at a great prize from Template Dreams!

Oh!  I forgot!  I need 1 more follower to hit double digits!  Help me out!
