Scrapbooking Like Crazy!!

Good morning everyone!! OMG...I have been stamping and scraping like crazy!! I finished two more pages and made two cards yesterday....whoohoo!!! I also lost a pound in one day....maybe I better quit this diet while I'm ahead....LOL!!! I gotta tell ya...I get really cranky when I don't have chocolate!! I'm almost ready to go check out all the stockings to see if any candy got yi yi!!!  Anyway.....let me tell you about the pages I made. The first one features the Stamp Oasis Sailboats from Rubbernecker #SKU 9 SO GM,  and Rubbernecker's Coral #164-05, Ocean Bottom #163-02, Small Queen Angel Fish #163-05, and Small Starfish #164-06 all found here. The pictures of my sister and her children were taken in 1991....won't she be surprised to see this page finished!!! The Dew Drops, rieck rack, and letter stickers are the finishing touches.

Here is another picture of my granddaughter Mackenzie and her brother and my grandson Cody. This was taken in just seems like yesterday when they were that little!!!  Rubbernecker's Snowflake Trio stamps #53-06 were used for the background and the popped up snowflakes. The  Santa #209-07 was colored with Copics, glitter was added to the beard, and Flower Soft was added to the hat fur.

The frame pieces were cut out free hand and the buttons, felt snowflakes, and Baker's Twine finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by....I will have a card to share tomorrow!!

Joan, I should be at my scrap desk too finishing a few more pages for 2011.
I love how you included stamping with scraping. That is something I forget to do. I will look to my stamp more in 2012 to make my own embellishments, thanks for the inspiration.

PS I have chocolate and caramel (home made of course), my two faves!
