Can you say published!!!!

Well I am beyond excited to finally be able to say that I have been published for the first time. The layout that I designed appear in the August Cricut Families Idea Book. I have been very patiently waiting (not really) for the magazine to be in print. But they have very recently changed to a completely digital edition. What a great idea! I have so many old magazines collection dust. I have had fun slowly changing my magazines over to digital copies.
The pages is a page that I designed after our family portraits last year. It was the first time in several years we had a chance to collect all the cousins to have some fun!
They had so much fun trying to all jump at the same time. I have to say there were quite a few funny shots in this series. It took awhile to get them all together.
Enjoy! Chris

Road Trip

So I know I have been quiet but I have been working on some things that I can not show you yet. Soon I promise but I placed an order for some scrapbook supplies! Not that I needed any more stuff but do any of us really need more supplies. The box arrived from 2Peas and I set to work.
Here is a peek in my box! Shhh!
As soon as I can share what I did with the pretty stuff in the box I will. But in the meantime I will share a page that I did of a hockey road trip to Minneapolis. The picture inside the waterpark were not the best but it is really hard to get a good shot in a waterpark.
Most of the product is Simple Stories- Snap! It was lots of fun to play with. I just love the bright, fun colors. Off to play some more!

Enjoy!- Chris

Some more hockey?

Just in case you didn't get enough the other day. I did some more pages with the Creative Memories Sporty Stack. This paper is WSL so get it while you can. I can say the colors are great and could go with anything not just sports.
This is the same event. I like the fact that none of the pages are the same but they all go together. I kept the groups of embellishments similar but a bit different on each page.
To make it even better they won the whole event! It was a crazy rough tournament, not the kind I like to watch. So Dad took all the photos for me. Thanks, Dad!
Enjoy! Chris

Some hockey anyone?

I know I know we are finally in full blown summer and I am talking about ice hockey. The sad part is we are just a few days away from a regular scheduled hockey. I know you can call me Hockey Mom.
These pages are all created with Creative Memories Sporty Paper Stack.
This was an outdoor 4x4 tournament last spring. Let's just say the boy had some fun. I am quite enjoying playing with the paper stack. There are lots of bright patterns to pick from.
Enjoy! Chris

Working on workflow!

So I am been missing for a bit. As some of you know my daughter has had some pretty major surgery. I will spare you the details as it would make some a bit queasy ! She is doing quite well now but that way a long road. This is her in the hospital. She looks better then she feels.
Then there was a week of lots and lots of special care from her parents! She had a rough recovery period, but the doctor was happy with how all the bone work went.
 So after a week she got a new cast. Very painful experience- by the way.


To make it even more exciting she turn 16 in the middle of this whole experience. So her brother tried to make it a bit better with a present to match her new cast.
We seem to be on the up swing now so now onto my next issue. Not a ton of work coming out of my office. So I am spending the day on workflow! So get ready there is some scraping happening so soon as I clean my scrapbook area!
Enjoy!- Chris
