2012 Artisan Design Team Projects For November - Part Three

My last project this month is a super simple scrapbook page. I had an idea in mind and it turned out exactly like I had wanted, I love when that happens!
When I saw this one stamp in the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set, I didn't see a ornament, I saw a light bulb. I was so excited to create a page with a string of light bulbs. Even though it is so simple and there is really not much to it, I'm so happy with how this page turned out!

Stamps: Ornament Keepsakes, Notable Alphabet
Ink: Gumball Green, Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight, Real Red, Crumb Cake
Paper: Whisper White, Gumball Green, Real Red
Tools & Accessories: Big Shot, Holiday Ornaments Framelits, Typeset Alphabet dies, White Bakers Twine (dyed with Gumball Green Ink), Dazzling Details

Thanks for checking out my Artisan Design Team project for this month. Next week Friday the Artisan Design Team will be doing a Facebook project blog hop, come back to check it out!

Zack's First Swimming Lesson

Zack did his first ever swimming lesson today! He was very excited and nervous.
His buddy Blake is in the same class as him, so fun!

After swimming he told me all about his class and all the things he did, like going under water, playing with the toys, playing games and blowing bubbles. He loved almost everything, even going under water, he just did not like the shower at the beginning!

Welcome Baby!

This week my brother and his wife welcomed a baby girl into their family. We went over the other night so the boys could meet their new cousin. We took over a little something for the baby and I made this almost all pink card to go with it. Since I mostly make boy cards & scrapbook pages, I was thrilled to make a girly card!

Awe, she's so cute!

Here she is! Hailey Elizabeth:

Levi loves babies and is so gentle:

Hailey yawned and Zack thought it was so funny:

Jakob loves his new baby cousin!

First Snow Day

It snowed a lot one day last week. Zack could not wait until the boys came home from school. They were so excited and played outside for over an hour.

Halloween 2012

This year Halloween night was really cold. We went out for about 45 minutes and by the end we were all freezing. After we made a quick trip around the neighbourhood, we went and made the rounds to some of my family.

Jakob was Superman, Levi Spiderman and Zack was Handy Manny.

Sorting out all their treats:

2012 Artisan Facebook Friday

It's time for Octobers Facebook Artisan blog hop! You should have just rolled in from Wendy and her super cute scrapbook page.

For this months Facebook project I decided to do a card. I am more of a scrapbooker and tend to lean toward more pages than cards, but I just loved this little card knew it was going to be my facebook project.

The base of the card is Elegant Eggplant. My favorite color is purple and this purple is perfect! I love the way it looks with Pool Party and Summer Starfruit. I added a little Glimmer paper for some bling!
