Here is a sneak peak of what I just finished today with my new box of Graphic 45 goodies. I never would have believed that I had in me, but the inner alteration-diva wanna-be is fighting her way out of me! LOL!

Here is my first one:

Fist up is the April kit at Scrapbook Obsessions. You should see the chipboard letters that is included in this kit!!! It's by Colorbok and 26 sheets of 12x12 letters, so essentially 15 sets of complete alphas in one package!! It is unbelievable!!
I really love Cosmo Cricket and the Girl Friday line is right up my alley! I actually got this paper already before the kit, that's how much I love it!! Here is a layout about the antique chair Second Child is sitting/standing on. I wish I had photography skills to take better pictures of the chair. However it's the fact that she is sitting in the chair her grandfather sat on as a child that makes it meaningful, so here it is:
Then a surprise package came from Graphic 45!!! Finally, my hands and eyes fall upon Fashionista and Transatlantique!! I wish words can describe how unbelievable those two lines are. I sat there and admire and sniffed the delicious paper! How DID I get so interested, enthralled and mesmerized by vintage?? I don't know but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Graphic 45!!!
Finally, a picture of First Born holding the mini-album I made with the Girl Friday paper line. The mini is a mini-Maya Road album included in the April kit. I did it in 2 hours! That's a record!!! I told myself to KISS!! LOL!

There was a time when I felt frustrated whenever I saw layouts of single photos. I never could understand how could anyone ever dream of catching up or being done if they scrap one photo at a time. Well, I understand now since I myself am no longer interested in being done or catching up. I scrap in the moment. I scrap the moment. I scrap because baby girl's cheeks and chubby legs bring tears to my eyes.

The DT call combo immdiately reminded me of the half sheet of Artic Frog paper I have been keeping since 2005. That's right! It validated my inner hoarder!!! It was indeed a half sheet (now only quarter sheet) of paper, but I knew exactly where it was, because I still love that paper! So check out the combo and join us at CCG by playing and creating a layout using this combo. The DT reveal is very intimidating. I hope I'm not a one-combo wonder!
Here is my take on the color combo! I rarely say this, but I do **heart** this layout. Could DD#2 be more ridiculous with her fake smile??

I have several version of this photo and this is my first scrapping of it. I rarely scrap a photo twice, but when it comes to DH and me, it's going to have to repeat, that is, if I ever get around to scrapping us at all...
This layout was done to answer several challenges. I love it when I can combine challenges into one!

I miss those days when DD#2 was still immobile. I can leave her somewhere and then stand far away to zoom in to achieve decent "portrait mode" shots. I love this photo of her, she's so adorable, definitely the most adorable child in the world. Yeah, yeah, I'm her mother, but I'm totally impartial here. * LAUGH *
