Fairy Hollow

All my designers are making these fantabulous kits just for me right now!!! I am so excited! Holly over at Pixie Perfect Designs created this super dee duper (yes I just quoated Barney) kit, that was so totally perfect for our meetings with Tinks fairies. I will go onto Tinks pictures next. But until then here is her kit, and the layouts I did using her Fairy Hollow kit you can pick up at Enchanted Scrap Studios.

It's Your birthday

One of my fab designers Cathy K (aka twoboyz00) that I ct for did this wonderful kit that was inspired by a beetles song...hmmmm which one could that be? You can find it through her blog or at digiscrapaddicts.

Isn't it so cute!??? I saw it and once again, knew what photos I had to use. Which was lucky for me, because I had yet to scrap them and I guess, there was a reason for it. A couple years have passed, but the memory of this party are so very clear. It was for sure, the best party I have ever been to. Can't you tell from the photos how much fun we had. I just die looking at our clothes! Amazing Dawn (check out her blog, it is as fab as she is too), kudos for throwing yet another AMAZING party! You are well, I would say my brotha from another motha but maybe I will say my sista from another mista!

summer love kit

I am in a hurry to get to bed, so this is going to be quick. I used the summer love kit by Pixie Perfect Designs. I didn't question or hesitate using these photos and am so honored to have had the chance to look back and reflect on my friendship with this wonderful woman that I am so lucky to have had in my life for the short time that I did. Emily passed a way shortly after her 30th birthday from breast cancer that spread to her lungs and liver. She left behind a husband and two children that as a mom, makes my heart weep. She was an amazing woman and has truly changed my life and how I look at it. I hope that you all have a chance to have an "emily" in it. Here are the pages I created with it

Favorite Recipe

I have been waiting to post these ones! When I got home from vacation I got to jump right into this kit. It is a design by Scrappyweiss Designs called Favorite Recipes. You can find it at her store at Enchanted Studio Scraps. I struggled with the right photos to use for this kit. I don't know why but so many different photos came to mind and I think that I ended up using the right ones, though I had to go back a few years for the first page. Here is what the kit looks like:

I just love doing what I do because I get to always go back to whenever I want and relive moments that were so precious so many years ago, and recreate them on paper! Or here on the computer for you to see too!
So without going on, it must be the lack of oxygen due to my stuffed sinuses but I am feeling mushy today! Here is what I came up with from this kit!

One fine day

I was super excited when I was finally caught up enough to begin creating for a designer whose team I joined just before leaving on vacation. Now I am sick!!! Boo hoo! Well I must say that that stinkin bug has made home here in Mi casa and does not want to say adios! I am ready to kick it in the butt and get better. From my little guy to my daughter, and on to my husband full circle back to me, when will it give! So here I am, I have managed to squeeze a couple LO's out for a great and wonderful designer Cathy K. I used her kit One Fine Day which she entered into a SYTYCD contest over at digiscrapaddicts . Here is what the kit looks like:

And here is what I came up with:

I wanted to cry after I finished this page of my daughter in her gown with Prince Charming. It made me think about how fast the last nearly 6 years have gone by and how quick the next 6 are. It won't be long until she is all grown...I guess I had a moment! I love my little princess!

We are back and I am soooo far behind

I wanted to post a quick minute before heading off to bed. I tried journaling our trip to disney and got 4 days into it, but on the fourth day, Hudson got sick, then I got sick and then Faith got sick and well, I guess, the sickness sort of bummed me out. We did have a great time, I can't wait to share some photos with you all. I will post a couple tonight until I can get some things made with them. Though I do plan to do old fashioned paper albums for my stereo tower too. I just love my cricut and paper, but I love that I have new pictures to work with too.

We did 3 days at Epcot or more like 2 1/2 since we made 1/2 day a sick day.

Faith LOVED the Soarin ride. It was surprising after all the tears we got even after dragging her onto the pooh bear ride at Magic Kingom. She just isn't adventurous, and has a hard time doing new things without knowing what to expect. But I am the exact same way. So bundle that into a 5 year old, well it made for a difficult trip to disney.
We also did 2 days at Magic Kingdom.

The rides and shows were nothing short of absolutely amazing. My fav was Mickeys Philharmagic. I even went back with Keith so he wouldn't miss it. Or it may have been the princesses, or the fairies, or the light parade, or or or was all so amazing.
Then we did one day at Universal and the Honey I shrunk the audience 3-D was soooooo awesome, Faith loved the High School Musical show in the streets, and the parade. We watched so many shows and had so much fun here too.

Then theres Animal Kingdom, and this was yet another successful day.

We did as much as we could and I don't know if we could have done anymore. Faith got her face painted (totally the highlight of the entire trip) and her hair wrapped. (that was supposed to last for 2 months, but lasted 2 days when it slid right off her hair!)
We spent 1 day at Sea World and OMG watched some of the most amazing dolphins and whales perform together with birds and wonderfully dressed cast members, it reminded me of an aquatic cirque de soilei. Which we watched at the Sea World San Diego several years ago.

I think the moment taken to the memory bank was Faith Feeding the dolphins
We ate at a few character meals one of my favs being the girls night that we did the bippity boppity boutique where Faith and her cousins were turned into royalty with the swing of a wand! She walked in as Faith and walked out as Princess Faith! Then we went to have Dinner with Cinderella, Prince Charming, The Evil Stepmother, and the stepsisters. It was a magical night for everyone!

So that is it in a nutshel minus our dinner with Chef Mickey and Breakfast with Pooh, and all the fun in between! We had so much fun! It was a magical trip and I can't wait to do it again one day, when the kids are older! Great times, Great photos! I am so blessed!
