Practical Scrappers Patterned Paper Challenge

The DT challenge this week over at Practical Scrappers is to use at least 2 pieces of patterned paper on a project. On this layout I used several pieces of patterned paper. This picture is of my niece and nephews getting ready to head out to go trick or treating. I used the paper doll dress up cartridge to create a paper doll of each of them in their costumes. Thanks for looking!!

Twilight Glass Block and Cake

For my cousin Lauren's birthday, we made her a Twilight glass block light and a personal twilight cake. She loved them both and they turned out so cute. All the shapes on top of the cake were cut using the cricut and the white squares to make the top of the cake look like a chess board were cut out of fondant. TFL.

A couple more Fall/Halloween layouts from 2008

Here are just a couple layouts I was able to get done yesterday. They are for my 2008 Fall/Halloween album. I only have 2 more layouts left to do for 2008 and I'll be able to move on to 2009!! I just purchased the Make the Cut cutting software this past Friday. I'm still learning how to use it but I'm loving it so far. On this first layout I used MTC to cut out the title. The rest is cut out using cricut cartridges.

Buttons Challenge

Our design team challenge at Practical Scrappers was to use buttons. So I threaded some ribbon through four buttons and placed one in each corner of my picture set. I am so happy to be on this design team. It forces me to scrapbook and get things done that I wouldn't probably have done yet. Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

"Twilight" themed table for New Years Eve dinner.

Every year at my church, we have a New Years eve dinner. We have a tradition that anyone who would like to decorate a table can do so and my Pastor's wife rents the table cloth for you and you bring all your dishes and decorations. Its always a lot of fun decorating your table and seeing what everyone else does with their table. Here are some pictures of our tables from last night. They were all beautiful.

My sister and I decorate a table together every year. This year we decided to do a Twilight Themed table (minus the vampires since it was at church). We basically went off the book covers for our centerpiece and used the apple from Twilight, flower from New Moon, ribbon from Eclipse and chess board and pieces from Breaking Dawn. We also used the Red and Black from the covers of the books.

My mom decorates a table every year and this is a picture of her table.
This was the table my Mother-in-Law and Sister-in-Law did. They also decorate a table together every year.
Here are some other ladies' tables.
Then last but not least, my Pastor decorated a table. He loves Jaguars so he did his table in a Jaguar theme. He also is very handy and hooked up a chandelier to go over his table. It was really cool.
