May Scrapbook Layouts

WOW! Has this month flown by and so fast! I don't know about you, but we have had a million things going on. I have created soooo many things this month and finally I am MAKING time to share :)

These are the 5 layouts we did at my monthly scrapbook class. The June class will be June 18th at 6:00 PM (always the 3rd friday of the month). Call or email me if you would like to attend.

I love this layout done with the circle die with the big shot. I had fun making the hair have texture using the polkadot emboss folder in the big shot. Aren't the little kids cute?

These flowers are done using a NEW level 2 hostess set. I love this set because our punches fit to cut them out simply.

This layout was done using the NEW Presto Paper in the Summer mini. Everyone loved this paper and most made it their purchase the night of the class. If you have not see it yet, it comes white with embossed images on the paper. We used a stampin' sponge and ink pads to rub color on the paper. The embossed images resist the ink. It's like magic :)

Cute and simple baby layout using Perfect Plum

Have you seen the new travel set and matching paper? Love this too!!!!!

Stampin Up Cruise 2010

We just returned from the Southern Carribean Stampin Up cruise. It was amazing, as usual. This was my 6th incentive trip with Stampin' Up and they just keep getting better! This year we took all 3 kids. It was a little more work, but we all had a great time. Here are a few shots of our week long vacation. I will be posting more along with projects and ideas I saw.

Our ship was HUGE! Caleb & Gavin loved everything it had to offer. There was ice skating, in-line skating, a rock climbing wall, putt-putt, basketball, an arcade, pools and hot tubs and the list goes on. They loved getting to eat whatever they wanted on the buffet. Breakfast was their favorite. I believe Gavin's breakfast usually consisted of 2 chocolate donuts, 3 pancakes, 1 cinnamon roll and 2 pieces of toast! Today when he came home from school he asked where the buffet was!

We ate dinner with a cute little couple from Canada. They had a baby too. Little 9 month old Connor was super cute.

Our little Lyla did go to the beach when she was about 6 weeks old, but this was her first time to actually get in the ocena. This was in Barbados. She stayed in just long enough to snap this picture and then she was put in the shade where she slept.

I don't think we ever got a picture with all 5 of us in it. I'm just realizing that. I had too many people to take care of to think about my photos. The last 2 days, Caleb chose to stay on the ship in the kids area while the rest of explored St. Marteen and St. Croix. That's why we are missing someone :(

Check back here. I have more to share. I will also be posting different things to my family blog
