We have used the Welcome Christmas Stamp Set and the designer series paper that was available in last month's promotion (and I have totally forgotten the name).
Here is the otherside of the ornament.
One of the girls from the club (waving hi Jo) suggested putting photos of the kidlets on these ornaments to hang on the tree. I think that would be so cute.

So as you can see I have used a lot of my retired stash on this layout.
Sunday, December 5, 2010
I have used a base of Old Olive cardstock. I always save my diecut papers when I buy them to use as templates. I have used one of these templates to make a Real Red photo mat. I doodled around the edge with my Basic Black marker.
I have punched circles from the Bella Rose paper with various circle punches (I think I used every circle punch I own.
The title was stamped with the Big Deal Alphabet and trimmed out.
In the little frame I have used a definition from the Definitions set. The cute frame stamp is now retired (and I cannot for the life of me think of the name of the stamp set). I journalled on white strips and adhered these to the layout.
I hope you have enjoyed this little look at my last scrapbook club.

We have had a hugely busy day today in the Johnston household. It started out bright and early with young Mr Sam waking up at 5.30 (I know!! and I am so not a morning person). We then spent the next few hours waiting anxiously to see if cricket would be cancelled or not.
Thankfully it wasn't and Zac's Under 12 team won their grandfinal match. I was so excited for the boys. They have worked hard and really deserved their win. Zac bowled really well and got two wickets with the last two balls of his over but then didn't get to come back on so we will never know if he would have got his hat-trick. Yes I am a very proud mumma.
Ben's team (under 9s) only had two people in their opposition turn up so they had a muck around game for the last of the season. Ben has really enjoyed his first season of cricket and he has improved so much.
After cricket it was home for a few hours to prepare for Ben's 9th birthday party which was at the Indoor Sports Centre ...so yes more running around and sweaty boys. They had a blast though.
Zac is now at his second birthday party of the day so before I pick him up (and then his sleepover guest) I have five minutes to share the fifth layout from scrapbook club.
Here is a close up of some of the detail on the page.
I love this colour combo of navy, red, kraft and chocolate chip.
I still haven't added my photos to this page as I wanted some post renovation photos but of course 11 years after we started we still haven't finished. As my husband says, "You can't rush these things".
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time this weekend to create.
