Here is the quickest layout I have done in forever. The paper came that way so all I did was add photos, a title, and the 25. Not sure when the last time I created a layout so fast. Gotta love that! We have been planning to go to Cancun for our anniversary but haven't found the right package yet. So we stole away for a weekend getaway at a cabin and went floating down the river, we took takeout from our favorite restaurants with us, and went to a dinner/comedy/show while we were out of town. It was a really fun, relaxing anniversary and can't wait to go get away to Cancun soon. Happy Anniversary sweetie! May the next 25 years be just as great! I am so lucky to have married my very best friend!

I had bought these cute little stamps and the reveal wheel set and wanted to use it. I must admit, these are so fun! It takes a bit to get the stamps to line up, but such a fun interactive card. These are a perfect way to use up those 6x6 paper pads that we all have stashed around. I love how it turned out. I wish them luck as they move on to new adventures in their life and hope they enjoy the card and remember us!

Mom and Me Scrapbooking However the price of $25 plus the frame of $20 added up quickly as they had one for each month. I thought they were so cute so I thought to myself, why don't I make something like that but with just paper and not wood pieces. This is what I came up with and the bonus is, I didn't buy anything to make it. It was created with my own stash and cut files I already had. I insert this into a 12x12 shadow box frame and can change the seasons as I want and the bonus is, they all fit behind each other in the frame! This is my "fall" version of my grid kit. The files are Miss Kate's Cuttables and cricut cuts. I think it turned out cute. Can't wait to give a set to my secret sister! What do you think? Now on to make winter, spring, and summer.

I LOVE LOVE these picture changer cards. How absolutely fun is this? This has got to be a way to make someone smile. I think I could play with them all day. So much fun to make and receive. It was also a fun way to learn to use more stamps. I have been a scrapbooker for years, but I have only been a stamper for about a month. Sometimes, it is fun to do something new. I am liking it.

So I had these borders left over from a big project that I did and decided to do some pages to go with a Christmas challenge that was posted. By combining them in a different way, I was able to do another 4 page layout set with my scraps. Even the trees and snowflakes came from leftover scraps. I just cut them into these cute little trees which I LOVE. Who knew little trees could make me so happy. LOL. I am so behind on Christmas.... one more event done!
I LOVE how this turned out. I made this interchangeable truck banner. The pumpkins can be removed and a tree, shamrock, heart, Easter eggs etc. can be put into it. That way it can be used year round if I want. I can even add a cake or presents for everyone's birthdays. Super cute and fun. I did however, remove 2 of the trucks. I thought it looked a little congested where it was hanging so I used 3 trucks instead of the 5 I originally started with but I didn't retake the photo. Either way, I think you get the idea. Now I have a couple extra trucks to put on a scrapbook page. So much fun or maybe I will make one more and make one for a friend. Either way, I love how it turned out. Hope you do too. Have a great day! I am sharing it with the challenges below:

Isn't this a cute little bird box. I love him. He's from https://www.myscrapchick.com/. Such a cute little file. So easy to put together and turns out so fun. After making him and showing my friend, I got an order to make 23 more. That's a win win! So now I am off to get busy.
