Well, I'm almost getting around to one year since I took over the online store... My statsh of leftovers is also quite large so I've been trying to use them up. Here's an extra pages I made from leftovers :)
Almost everything for this page is from the Sweet & Leafy Collection but I added the buttons and the big "GROW" letters from my own statsh. The tag is from a really old collection called Cotton Candy. I love this picture with my boys' little heads poking out :) I can't get both of them on my lap anymore!! They're getting big faster than I ever thought was possible. When they were little, everyone told me it would go so fast & all I could feel was "Whew... I hope so!!" Now I'm sad that I don't have little babies to cuddle :) However, they are becoming such facinating people. It's amazing to me that they are so tall (even if Brody complains about how short he is... *genetics*) and so capable!
When Brody was little, he LOVED the camera! Brad would follow him around taking pictures and Brody would always try to grab the camera to "See Bodie!" It was funny when Brad's mom used an old film camera. He couldn't understand a camera that didn't show you the photo as soon as it was taken :) These funny face shots were from a camera grabbing session. Also, these papers and stickers were part of a free kit from My Mind's Eye (still LOVE free stuff!). This page was a breeze to put together! It only took about 20 minutes!

Here's yet another page I made with the Barefoot & Bliss collection. I got myself a whole bunch of new Sissix dies and am uber excited about them all (hee hee...) I'm totally in love with my new huge scallop border die and keep using it on everything. To make the big holes in each scallop I used a 1" circle punch. Because it's kinda hard to see where you're punching, I made a pencil dot in the center of each scallop and then lined to dot up in the middle of my circle punch to make sure my circles were centered in the scallop. The large label die I used for journaling is new too. I made the white oval shape by first cutting a rectangle and then sliding each end into a 1 3/4" circle punch to round off the ends. You can cut only one end of a piece of paper by turning the punch over, then sliding your paper in from the punch area. Maybe I'll have to make a video featuring that one of these days :)
