My girlfriend had a birthday a little while ago and this was her gift. I hoped that she would like it, but I wasn't sure if was her style or would go with the decor in her house. I had been there once, but couldn't really remember what colors were there. Does that ever happen to you? Anyway, it worked out well. She loved it, it worked well with her decor and all was well! I just love it when everything works out the way you hope!

I've been totally slacking in the blogging department, huh? I felt so bad that I decided to just go ahead and post the last few pages for your enjoyment! Sorry about the delay, I've totally gotten taken into the holiday craziness! I have been brainstorming/searching for Christmas gifts and planning my Thanksgiving dinner. This is only the second year that I have hosted Thanksgiving and this will be the first year that I will make a turkey myself! The first year I was so intimidated that I purchased a turkey that was already cooked and ready to go. I figured out that to buy a cooked 11 pound turkey would be about $65 or I could by a frozen 10 pound one for a bit over $3 (after a $2 coupon), a roasting pan for $67, a nice digital thermometer for $20 and some string for $4. I figure if I just make one more turkey (or chicken, or whatever), with that the pan, then the pan and thermometer will pay for itself! I'm actually pretty excited because I LOVE turkey. Thanksgiving has always be my favorite holiday. You don't have to worry about gifts or a lot of decorations or dressing really nice - it's just food, family, friends, comfy (loose!) clothing and good conversation. I'm so excited! I better start searching for some good and healthy recipes. Anyone have any good ones they want to share?

This is another layout that I really like. These Simply Scrappin' Kits just make everything TOO easy! I *love* it! Everything is so perfectly coordinated and there are so many elements to work with. Is it terrible that I mostly love it because it requires minimal thinking? I guess I'm a lazy scrapper ... or maybe it's because this was my first real go at a true scrapbook. Well, whatever the reason is, I am so happy with it and will be doing more! :D

I just LOVE this layout. I found it from one of the worksheets from the Stampin' Up demo website. It was intended for a 6x6, but I just made some adjustments for the 8x8. I just love the bursts of that lovely Guava color!
