I sure can't believe not only is it 2016, but almost February!  Where does the time go?  And here I am, still scrapping in 2013.  Although to my credit, I am in November 2013 and I should be getting into 2014 very soon.  As hard as I try, I am almost always two years behind doing my layouts.  I guess as family events keep happening, we keep taking pictures and it never!  This is truly a good thing because I do love to scrapbook.  I thought I would share this layout with you of Oliver:

The cardstock is American Crafts, the patterned paper is punched using an Anna Griffin edge punch, the title is American Crafts Thickers, the tag is Anna Griffin's Totally Tags (I really wish I bought two sets of these because I use them all the time!), the cat embellishments were given to me by a friend (they were not in a package so I have no clue whose these are), and the butterfly is from Anna Griffin's Vibrant Vellum Embellishments.  

I love the bottom photo in this layout because it is of Oliver (on the right) playing with one of his five siblings.  I had such a great time playing with all the kittens that day.  Momma cat and daddy cat were very understanding and let us all play together.  Kitten antics are just the cutest!  

I hope you enjoyed my layout!  Please feel free to leave me a comment!

Private Cricut Classes In Maryland!!! Scrapbooking Too!!

I am the owner of two Cricut yahoo groups, Cricut Lovers is the one I started all on my own (there is a link on my blog if you would like to join!).  I have been a little surprised to find out how many people watch the demos, infomercials, etc...... buy a Cricut, and have not even taken their machine out of the box! I can't help all my group members, however I can help anyone who lives near me. If you own a Cricut (any Cricut) and would like me to teach you, I would love to give you a private class! I will teach you about the care of your machine, cutting, and features on the cartridges you own. I use to own an online scrapbook store (Cutters Creek) and have owned almost all of the machines released. I currently own four different Cricut machines (Create, Expression, Imagine, & Explore). Yes, there is a fee, however it will depend on the distance I need to travel so, email me at and we can figure out times and cost. I will even bring some cartridges you may not own so you can play! We will have a lot of fun and by the time I leave, you will be so in love with your bug, you will cut, cut, cut, cut...... I live in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area, so email me if you are serious about learning about your machine.  We will have so much fun and how great would it be to make a new crafty friend!!
