Little Jimmy the elfs visit

Well Little Jimmy the elf has been having some fun around here. It is always interesting to see want he is up to in the morning.
The whole Christmas tree seemed to be wrapped in tp. Luckily he did not use the whole roll.
A few chocolate kisses sprinkled around a kissing booth. Everyone loved the chocolate!

A camp fire in the living room what is that about. Jimmy seems to have burnt his marshmallow.
The kids have enjoyed this experience so much. It has been fun! I wonder what else he will get  into with only a week left.
Enjoy, Chris

A little bit of this and a little of that

I was luckly enough to get a bit of scrapbooking in this weekend. It was a "traditional" kind of day. I played around with some Halloween pictures. The kits are all Creative Memories but there are lots of different ones in there.
Surprise, surprise another dance page. I had fun with the new Creative Memories Cricut Frames and Tags Cartridge. I am really loving it. There are so many great things on it and not just Christmas.
Enjoy! Chris

Shhh! Sneak peak!

I have to say anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE a new toy or scrapbooking tool. Well Creative Memories has a new Cricut Cartridge coming out November 1st. It is called Holiday Frames & Tags. Sometime we can't get past a name. So I worked on a page with nothing to do with Christmas.
I love how you can use these jammed packed cartridges in so many different ways. Can you guess where the cuts are? There are also some great 3D cuts but more about that in another post.
Enjoy! Chris

Where have I been?

Well let's just say that things have been crazy. Now that summer is over and everyone is back in school time for me to do some much needed maintenance! We had a wonderful summer...
I spent lots of the summer driving the boat and having fun with the kids. It even started off with a accident to get things going! He is all good now and happy to show off his scar and explain how he fought off the shark! (not really it was a kneeboard)
There was even a great week of sailing.

And always some time for scrapbooking!

Creative Scrapper

I had so much fun playing with a sketch from Creative Scrappers. The Sketch is #210. I love the way that it turned out. The great thing about a sketch is it gives you a wonderful place to start. Some of them look exactly the same, some completely different!
Here is mine....

They also having a vitual crop on Facebook..check it out!
Most of the supplies are from Creative Memories, Be Young Girl Addition.

Valentine's Day Teacher Treat

We all know that teachers get lots of chocolates and candy for Valentine's Day. So at the last minute (last night) we decide to do something different.
It is a notebook with a magnetic closure. I saw the idea on Heidi Swapp here first but the had to adapt it  for a notebook and pen. I think in the end it turned out very cute!

Have a great Valentine's Day!!!-Chris

Wish tech was easier for me

So I have spent too much time trying to get my blog to link to my Pinterest boards. So I think I am going to take a rest. So instead I will share a page or two.
This is what it is like to live in the prairies!
This has quickly become the favourite part of my family photo shot! Stay Warm- Chris Pin It
