More Chistmas Layouts

Good morning and happy end of the week!  I hope that you are all prepared to go into the LAST WEEKEND BEFORE CHRISTMAS rush!  To help you slow down a little and maybe relax, I'm showing you a couple of recent Christmas layouts of mine.  Even though I live where it almost never snows, I like to think about looking out the window some morning and seeing several inches of it!
 


Thanks for visiting with us today.  Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

Christmas Chefs

Good morning!  Here is a layout and kit that I just had to make after snapping a few photos of my grandson Andrew and my DH (known as "Abui" by Andrew) making a gingerbread Christmas tree the other morning.

Here's Andrew putting frosting of the biggest gingerbread "star" which is going to be the base of the tree while Abui makes sure that he covers it thoroughly.
 
When they were done with the "star stacking", there was enough frosting left over to make some "green pretzels".  Here they are before adding the white "icicles" and candy decorations to their work of art.

One of the great things about the holidays is getting to spend time with loved ones, doing things that you may not get the chance to do during the rest of the year!

Frozen

Good morning and happy Monday.  I hope that everyone had a great weekend.  I spent mine cropping in Dothan, Alabama with The Hive.  What a magnificent time we had!


Here are a couple of Frozen kits that I've made recently.  They have been very popular!  In fact, everything Frozen has become quite popular these days.  I saw some small toys that are just like the ones that you can get at the Dollar Tree for a buck.  Slap a Frozen sticker on them and they're going for $5.

Key to My Heart

Good morning!   Here is a layout that I made using Prima papers.  I like the way the pastel colors go with the light browns.
 
 
I will be travelling to South Florida this weekend to teach at Everything Scrapbook and Stamps on Saturday.  I am so much looking forward to this, especially since I'm being driven down and back by my darling DH!

Have a wonderful, safe and blessed weekend!

Fall layouts

Good morning! These are some of the fall layouts I made recently. Even though it has been below freezing temperatures you can still see some pretty leaves around.
 


 
This has been a favorite of my friends. I used felt pieces which I found at Michaels for most of the layout. I might make it into a kit pretty soon.




Have a fabulous and blessed day!

Happy December!

Good morning! Hope your Thanksgiving weekend was fabulous and you got a chance to enjoy every minute of it. As a fun-filled-family-tradition, my daughter and I shopped 'til we dropped on Black Thursday/Friday. This year we took baby Carolina with us to start training her early! She slept most of the night... she did miss some good sales, but her mommy got them all!

This is Carolina as the Snow Queen at Target


This is Valerie and I goofing off at Macy's.


 Carolina is choosing her favorite doll at Toys R Us.


 We were debating whether or not to buy Olaf for Andrew. The price tag was only $500!


After 14 hours, our poor feet needed a well-deserved massage.


Here's a Christmas layout I designed for the Scrap-a-teers from New Orleans. 

Have a wonderful and blessed day!

Oh Snap!

Good morning! Did you start cooking already for the big day tomorrow? I already did! Yummy, yummy! I wanted to taste every dessert but do it in a way that no one would notice....

Here's another fun layout I designed for the Scrap-a-teers last month in New Orleans. It's perfect for all the selfies our kids take!  (Sometimes big people, too!)
 
 
 Have a fabulous and blessed day!

Friends

Good morning and happy Tuesday!  Are you getting ready for Thanksgiving?  I sure am!  I am thankful for so many things and among them its the fact that I have amazing friends.  The Lord has truly blessed my life with many of them.

I designed these layouts for the Scrap-a-teers event last month in New Orleans. They loved the dolls of course, and who wouldn't?

Our Legacy

Good morning!  I trust that you had a wonderful weekend.
 
Here are two layouts that I made on the subjects of "family" and "legacy".  The colors I used on the second layout make it perfect for old black and white photos.

Piles of fun!

Good morning!  Here is yet another layout that I designed for Treasured Memories the last time I was there.  This one is about raking up all of those beautifully colored fallen leaves and what to do with the big piles. 
 
My husband tells me that he was young they would pile them all under a certain tree and then jump from the lower branches of the tree into the pile.  Then later they would light the pile on fire, something that is seldom done today because of the pollution laws.

Just Be You!

Good morning and happy Wednesday! This is another one of the layouts I designed for Treasured Memories last month. I love this paper line from Teresa Collins. So perfect for this time of year.
 
 
 
I belong to a great informal group of scrappers called The Hive and since my name is Bea we call it Bea's Hive.  We love everything with bees!  We meet once a month either in Dothan, Alabama (where we first met) or at a Scrapbook event somewhere in the Southeast.  I thank God for putting us together. We have the best of times and memories to last our lifetimes.
 
Here we are in the lobby of our hotel in Dothan this past weekend. 

 



And here we are outside!

 
Have a fabulous, wonderful, happy and blessed day!

Thank Heaven ... for Little Boys

Good morning friends!  Hope you had a lovely weekend. I spent mine with the Hive in Alabama scrapping for three days.  I feel totally refreshed after being surrounded by great company.
 
These are layouts totally related to little boys.  The first two I designed for Treasured Memories and the last one (Robots) I made it as a kit.
 



This is my precious grandson Andrew who inspires me to scrap little boy layouts.  He is very active and loves numbers, letters & shapes, the moon, and everything yellow - yellow lemons, yellow bananas, yellow sun (yeah... go figure!).
