In addition to the items in the EP paper pack, I added a sheet of white cardstock a strip of rose trim, and red foil Thickers (all by American Crafts). The pink brads were from my stash.
Kevin actually helped with this layout. He drew up a "sketch" for me and I actually used elements from that sketch to come up with this page. (He's my little artist!)
Here's hoping we get a full week in at school without any snow! It's back to work tomorrow.

I used the January "Who's Who" kit from Studio Calico to make this layout for my personal album. I had this photo of me with two of my sisters that told a story I needed to scrap. For years, whenever a camera comes out when we are together the hand gestures do, too. A favorite seems to be the spelling of "blood" with our fingers. Why? I guess we are pretty gangsta down on the farm in Kentucky?
Now, years from now when my grandkids are looking through my albums, they'll know what Lindsey was doing with her hands. She's spelling out "blood" because she's cool like that.

I made this really, simple layout for Kevin's album about the cousins all decorating cookies for Christmas. Baker's twine is my latest addiction...

First, is a layout of Kevin and Reese. What's the find? Being reminded of my two youngest sisters around the age Kevin is in these photos playing with Blake when he was a baby. Then it hit me, the age difference between my youngest sister and Blake is the same as that of Kevin and Reese. On Thanksgiving, I loved watching Kevin in the floor playing with Reese and sharing the toy tractors with her. (And aren't her curls just adorable?) I used my "Dear Diary" (Nov. '10) kit from Noel Mignon for this layout. I added the American Crafts crocheted flowers and the yellow Basic Grey alpha stickers.
I'm looking forward to spending the day with my boys tomorrow since school is out for the holiday. Apparently UPS is still delivering because I have a shipping confirmation that says I should expect a cool package tomorrow...

My younger son is named after my dad. Some days it's very appropriate that he is. I've noticed lately that Kevin has a funny, serious face when he is concentrating on something. My dad does the same thing. Last month while we were at my parents' house, I captured both Kevins in deep concentration. My Kevin was decorating cookies. My dad was working in a Sudoku book.The title came to me instantly. And yes, I was a huge Joker/Heath Ledger fan in the last Batman movie!

"Nothing beats a cup of cocoa on a cold winter's day" might be my longest title ever! I used scraps from my January Polka Dot Whimsy kit for this layout. I am still cutting individual letters out of that keyboard patterened paper by Bella Boulevard. :)

I have a clean scrap space, so I spent the morning creating with what is left of my January kit. I made a layout for my personal album that focused on journaling what I want out of this year. I loved the "keyboard" pattern on a sheet of Bella Boulevard paper in the kit. I cut the individual keys out for part of my title.
