scrappin' on my day off

I have saved today to scrapbook. I am so far behind, it's not even funny. Seriously. There are several reasons for this.

A. Sometimes I have to take a hiatus from scrappin' b/c the creative bones have left my body and I need to give them time to return.

B. I am busy making bows for people ordering them, for gifts, or for Brynn.

C. I am busy making other little gifts for all the babies...which I need to return to soon b/c I have about 4 things I need to work on.

D. I run out of something important I need to do the scrapbook pages, such as adhesive or a re-fill.

E. I am busy with school or correcting papers...which I am still behind on...what's new?! LOL

Regardless of my lack of keeping up, I was working on Bee's first bday pages today. I have 3 double layouts done (w/ exception of journaling on one page) and prob. 2 more layouts to go b/f it's finally finished. That will mean that Bee's first year is ALMOST complete. Now I only have left her 2nd year, 3rd year and of course, all of Baylen's first year. Phewwww...

I also have been scrapping pages inbetween the two kids, so like I did our matching shirts one not that long ago, and some zoo layouts as well. I only try to buy things for the pages I am currently working on or want to work on next. The next set of pages after bday will probably be rest of zoo pics, and then on to ice skating last year and time spent on the farm in Iowa the summer before Bee turned 1.

Soooo much to do!

The cupcake layout: I used the Celebrations Cricut cartridge and used several cupcakes size 2 cut out in various paper colors. thanks to Meghan P.'s advice, I used Martha Stewart's glitter glue and then sprinkled some glitter on each cupcake. This gave it a really cute, sparkly look. Thanks for the tip! I also used the same cart. to cut out various "tag" sizes and then used different die cuts and other embellishments as well.
