I am so excited to announce that I made the DT at:

How totally COOL is that! I LOVE the sketches that Liz creates and my first sketch to play with is no exception! Here is the sketch:

And here is what I came up with:

I used a mix of patterned paper from Scarlet lime and making memories! I added tissue paper around the circle and clustered a row of embellies! This was the first of my holiday photos from last week, that I have started to scrap... so stay tuned for more!

The best thing too is the AWESOME sponsors that LIZ has... and this month is no exception! Have your LO uploaded by the end of the month, to have a chance to win a gift certificate from Memorable Seasons!! Wooo Hoooo!!! Make sure you email Liz your LO at: Also... DON'T FORGET TO HAVE A PEAK AT THE OODLES OF SCRAPPY INSPIRATION FROM ALL THE NEW DESIGN TEAM MEMBERS AND THE EVER SO TALENTED RETURNING dt MEMBER APHRA... You can check all of the awesome LO's out here.

I also used this LO for the the challenge over at SCRAPPING OUT LOUD! I love their challenges there, so I used TISSUE PAPER around the edge of the circle by scrunching it up into little balls (yes my husband thought I was crazy!)... and I tied a little bow at the corner of the photos! Hope you like it!

This weekend was a busy weekend, as my monkey man turned THREE! Yes... he went from the terrible twos... to the terrible threes! Here are two of my favorite photos of my son from yesterday:

And of course to top off the busy weekend, I had my awesome niece stay with us! She was a blast to have... just a few late nights with my daughter and her! They are only 9 months apart and are the best of friends (most of the time...!) (I can't wait to scrap these!!)

How cute are these!!! I still have to pick my winner for the SO BLOG HOP... so stay tuned and I will announce it tomorrow!!!
