forever us

I wasn't sure how I was going to use this Fancy Pants Splendid from Allyscraps since I don't scrap girlie pages. But I just LOVE how this page turned out! This is truly a versatile collection, and soooo pretty! I used my Pazzles Inspiration to cut the "forever" and the mat behind it with the cut-out hearts.

The sketch for this page is the current sketch challenge on the Allyscraps forum - be sure to check it out! Complete a page before the deadline and earn an entry into the March drawing for a gift certificate to the store. And if you're new to the site, be sure to check out the membership drive for the easiest-ever $10 gift certificate!

Just us, being silly and goofy. Sometimes your silliness cracks me up and at other times it’s just annoying, which I know makes it even more fun for you. But that’s ok, because it’s part of what makes us fit together so well. So we’ll just keep on being goofy together… being forever us.

Allyscraps is having a Membership Drive!

This just might be the easiest gift certificate you could ever win! We are having a membership drive at the Allyscraps Forum! Just come register on the forum, and then sign in on the Membership Drive check-in thread. That is all you have to do to get started. Post 50 posts on the message board ("real" posts with some substance, of course) over the next 4 weeks, and we'll send you a $10 AllyScraps gift certificate as a big HELLO! Now of course we are hoping you like us and want to hang out all the time, but if not, the gift certificate is still yours!

The counting starts now, but you can join any time between now and March 23. So, to sum things up, you will meet a great group of ladies, who will enable you with your addiction, and never make you feel guilty. Be both challanged and inspired. Play games, chat, and maybe make a new friend or two, and we are going to pay you to do it! What are you waiting for? We can't wait to meet you... come on over and have some fun!

never out of season

Love this My Mind's Eye Snowed In - it's not just for Christmas, worked great for these winter pictures too! The sketch for this page is also available in the Allyscraps sketch forum!

When we built the playset, we expected it to get lots os use in the warm weather months. Little did we know that it would provide year-round fun! The boys love it just as much in the middle of winter! 2.12.08

baby how I love your smile

This was Tyler's first ever dental visit, and I'm so glad I took my camera! It was really funny how he walked right in, took off his shoes and climbed up into the chair. LOL! I thought this Fancy Pants Daily Grind was great for this.

It was your first time at the dentist and you made yourself comfortable - even taking off your shoes! You did great, only getting a little bit upset at the end, when you had to pick just one new toothbrush. You wanted to take all 3 of them home!

a fun gift card holder!

Well, this was just such a fun little project and a great way to give a gift card!

If you check out this post on the Allyscraps Blog, I give the complete instructions and templates for making this.

a tree to climb

I LOVE this October Afternoon Weathervane! What a great, rich, fallish line! Wonderful for boy pages, but certainly versatile enough for lots of other things too! These fun pictures of Tyler climbing a tree are from our Thanksgiving trip to my dad's place in IL. And how cute is that little Maya Road chipboard tree??

What could be more perfect than a beautiful fall day and a tree that was made for climbing? Tyler went at it like a natural. It must be a boy thing!

You can also find my sketch for this page at the Allyscraps forum, and submit a page by February 12th to be eligible for the February prize drawing!
