Christmas cards


I was cleaning up in my scrapbook room and came across these cards I didnt post from Christmas.
The first one is embossed with the snowflake folder,using the Cuttle Bug, on white Bazzill Bling. Red Bazzill for the Nestabilities Lable One ( I love this shape)Rub on for the sentiment, sticker snow flake and red ribbon.
The second one again used the snowflake folder, nestablities lable one, and scalloped circle. Rub on, ribbon and a sticker. Simple but classic looking.
Lastly the card I sent to some people this year. I was so pleasantly surprised by how this card came out. White Bazzill Bling, snowflake folder as the base. The wreath was made using the Martha Stewart branch punch, so each section was punched and run thru the Xyron sticker maker and laid out to make the shape of the wreath, pretty cool huh? Red bling and a red ribbon. I really loved how the card some out.

Oh the weather outside is frightful

Stuck at home today, Tuesday, with the boys, I am hoping to get downstairs soon for some me time. I will get those pictures posted soon about what I have been working on, 365 project.
Also I am trying a new set up with the blog. I am not sure about the look yet, I wanted the 3 columns and black is such a "thinning" color.
It is a work in progress, just like life is.
More later
This was much earlier today or yesterday since it is very early on Wednesday morning. This picture was taken at approx 11 am. Now is has been snowing since around 4pm and we have probably 5 inches outside. Crazy.
I did get some work done downstairs so it was a pretty productive day.

Rehabcare Album

Well I said I would post some pictures of things I worked at the weekend crop. This is an album made of chipboard that I ordered to spell Rehabcare. I thought it would be kind of cool to have an album out with pictures of the therapists and some of our patients at the outpatient clinic. Each letter makes up 1 page of the album and I added some flat blank chipboard pages. Each letter is covered with paper and embellishments.

Good Times



These are some pictures from my scrapbooking weekend. We stayed at the Drury Plaza Hotel, very nice. It was great to crop, eat, sleep do whatever and not have to cook, clean or yell at anyone.
The next picture is the table I sat at with some of Erin's friends an co-workers and their moms, starting with Erin in the brown tee shirt, going counterclock wise, Tracy, Missy, Libby, Pat (Libby's mom), Karen(Tracy's mom) and I sat next to Karen.
Last but not least my girl Erin, Love me some Erin time.
We cropped, we talked, we laughed and we bitched alittle, sometimes alot. But this weekend was some great therapy for me. Hated to leave, but we will do it again.
Next time I will post some pictures of the projects I worked on, Rehabcare album, vacation and 365 album.

Christmas at the Hays house

I was finally able to get together with my family to celebrate Christmas this past Sunday. My brother Tony, my sister Lisa, her husband Mark and their 2 boys, Elias and Caleb came by and we had lunch and opened presents. I put together a scrapbook album for Tony and Lisa from our summer vacation together. The kids got together in Brendan's room and played Rock Band. I havent played yet, but Tony and Lisa got their chance at the drums. The big boys, Tim and Mark went outside and shot off some guns, for fun and to make noise I guess.
We had a good time and it was nice to get everyone together. Hopefully we can do it again soon.
