Supplies are all from Close To My Heart

Other: chalks, blending pen

Have you seen this new homepage option from Google? A friend of mine introduced me to iGoogle and it's really neat because it's totally customizable. You can add whatever things you want on your page like weather, clock, address book, to do list, news, currency converter, Facebook, your favourite blogs and all kinds of things. You can even pick a skin to jazz it up to suit your you can see from above mine is a country fitting!

Just thought I would pass along this fun little tidbit since I don't have any scrap related projects to share today. I am uploading some pictures for developing so there are some things in the works. I'll keep you posted when I get them finished!

Have a happy scrappy day!

She Is...

My baby girl is turning 2 tomorrow...where did the time go!? So I thought it was appropriate to post a project featuring my birthday girl.Below is an acrylic album from Close To My Heart that I created for my daughter Gracie. For some reason everytime I tried to put text in the post with the slideshow it wouldn't work properly so I am putting them in separate posts.

I am really happy with the finished product and it was so much fun to make. All product is from CTMH. The paper pack I used was "Key to My Heart" and it is a beautiful pack. I used various other products throughout (I won't list them all but if you have a question about something just ask and I'll be sure to let you know!)

Thanks for looking!

So Sweet Layout

I made this layout using the Boom Di Ada paper pack and I love these colours together. Barn Red, Terracotta, Garden Green and Hollyhock....what an awesome combination. Although this collection is actually from last years new releases it still remains one of my favourites.
I appologize for the bad colour in this photo...still learning how to use my new camera. It's really dark down in my scrap studio and I haven't quite mastered low light photography yet!
