Coffee Coffee Coffee

So you might say... 'shocking another Starbucks layout' right? I know... very surprising. But I put the challenge out at Let's Scrap to use a song title for the title of your layout and I came across these loose pics and they needed a layout and this song popped into my head and then a layout was born!!!

"I won't last a day without you" by the Carpenters
My adorable husband was showing me how to scan and merge images tonight... the detail is incredible but I still need to play with it a little bit... but very happy with it and the layout!! Well off to bed for me and my adorable guy... Night All!! :0)

Let's Scrap Design Team Challenge!!!

I'm so excited!! This was my first DT Challenge at Let's Scrap!! I tinkered and tweaked this layout for days.... The Challenge is that you do a layout with a song title as your page title... mine was 'Rockin Around the Christmas Tree'. Years ago when we had 5 teenage boys in the house, craziness! I was trying to get a pic of the kids in front of the Christmas tree with Santa hats on.... was soooo not happening easily. After watching them being goofy I decided to start taking pics and do a lil mini photo shoot thinking how great it would be on a layout.... well.... years later I finally got the layout done!!! :0)

My tree is from an old Deluxe Cuts and I added some stickles to it...

Used some twine from The Twinery... used my Lyrical Letters, Base Camp and Quarter Note Cricut Carts for all my lettering and music notes....

I had so much fun with this layout. I hope it inspires everyone to get a little playful with their layouts. Come to Let's Scrap at take part of the challenge or do it yourself.... Have fun with it!! :0)

LOAD Challenge for January!!!

Ok everyone... I'm putting out a LOAD Challenge for January to everyone... LayOut A Day!! It might seem like alot BUT every double page layout counts as 2... I'll even make it easier and let you do a card and count it. The whole idea isn't to stress you out but to start 2012 off with a bang and get scrapbooking!! I put the challenge out on Facebook (if not a friend and want to be look me up Cathy van de Bruinhorst) and let me know and I'll add you to the group OR go to Let's Scrap at and look up the group for 100 layouts in 2012 and look for my LOAD Challenge and hook it up there.... I know you guys can do it.. and even if you don't get too 31 layouts for January, just think of it and try it... :0) Thanks!!

Let's Scrap Design Team....!!!

So on Dec 1st I started my first term on the Design Team at Let's Scrap... I am soooo excited and ready to go. There is a great group of ladies on the DT with me. If you haven't checked out Let's Scrap you should... there is so much to do there.. come play with us!

The next couple of weeks will be very busy for me with the DT, my scrapbooking classes, Christmas parties, crops and the best news - it looks like the kids have found a home. There is a family that is ready and eager to adopt these 2 kids and just in time for Christmas! I think the couple is great and think that it will be a great match. A crazy couple of weeks but so worth it for them.

So time to get busy... so much scrapbooking to do.. so little time!! Have a great weekend!!
