Guess who has a layout on Gallery Standouts???

So I have been visiting gallery standouts  for about a month now. I found out about it from A lot of the girls on our team have been featured there and they are just amazing scrappers! The design team at gallery standouts picks out layouts from the galleries around the web that really stand out. So I headed over there today for my daily dose of inspiration and I could not believe it......but my latest layout is featured as one of todays picks!!!!!
Woohoo!!! Pinch me!! Pinch me!!!
I am out of my head excited!!!
So here it is.....go and see.....Looking Ahead to 2010
And here is the layout that got me noticed......I created this for Log Your Memory week # 52 challenge.....

I'm off to giggle and tell every person I know.....thanks for letting me brag!!!!

Digi Layout!

journaling reads.....What a blessing sisters are! It’s not always easy sharing rooms and clothing and  getting along. But I think the good moments of laughs and shared confidences over ride those few times of disagreements. I love seeing you giggling and having fun together. You would not admit it but you are the best of friends!  Emily and Claire November 2009

I just finished this layout for the scraplift challenge over at the digichick....I love the way this one turned out!! And I had so much fun using elsies pieces everyday gratitude kit!! It's available over at the digichick of course!!

Layout Update!

I am trying to keep up with the December Daily Album....I'm close only 2 days I'll post those layouts later when I finish them. I have 2 new digi layouts to share though and I'm working on a paper one with the new Studio Calico kit...

This was a fun layout that took a bit of time!! I did this for the December challenge over at the Log Your Memory site. It was to list 100 things you want to remember from 2009. I used my word of the year here as the base for my page....I like the way it came out even though it took me forever!

This layout is from Thanksgiving Day. I used the template from last weeks template challenge at the digichick. I loved this pic of Emily and her little cousin Lauren...

Journal Your Christmas Day One...

It's here.....Day one of journal your Christmas! I know it is the 3rd already but I needed ink for the printer before I could print out my page and get it finished. This year I am doing a hybrid album and trying to keep it simple! I don't have my cover finished yet but i'll post when I do. I'm also not following all of Shimelle's prompts but doing more of what we are doing on that day and what God is teaching us through our advent studies. So here is day one......

I did the base page all digi then added the prima flowers and gem drops, the ribbon and printed the number and popped it on a pop dot. Simple and quick but i like the way it turned out!

Hybrid advent calendar

I just finished this great easy project! I used the advent template from MKC at the digichick...and jbarrette's woodland winter kit....and I came up with this!

You design and print the top and then there is a back where you write your note for that day. Use an exacto knife to cut the doors open and then glue it together to look like this...

You can see the one door is open here.....isn't that sweet!! And just in time as tomorrow is the 1st!!!!

I also did this layout the other day.....I knew I wanted to get my journaling down about this event right I snapped that pic and did it up!! That's what is great about digi scrapping!!
