December at Scrapmuse

The December newsletter has just come out from Scrapmuse and I have to say I think it is one of the best yet! There are so many great articles, technique and holiday. Of course I might be a little biased seeing as I wrote the technique article. ;D Here is the link for the newsletter if you get a chance to take a peek - December Newsletter.

I wanted to share my other projects that I made with the kit this month, too. This one is an older photo of Em and her friend, Payton. I used the edge of the decorative paper as a mask and misted with glimmer mist to get the fancy border on this page. The photo edge is a digi by Sandi Kreiger called French Laundry.

I realized that I haven't made many or any layouts with just Mark - so here it is - he said he didn't want millions of people looking at his picture - I told him that was a sure bet - maybe thousands, not millions. lol - I stamped the stars (Autumn Leaves) on a transparency and cut them out.

My grandmother at 18 - wasn't she beautiful? I used the glimmer mist with the little trees to try to make some shadow leaves behind the flowers I cut out.

And Emma and her Papa taking a ride on the RTV on Thanksgiving. Those smiles look alike to me. :D

My blogging friend, Sue - gave me this fun award! Thanks, Sue!! Sue's blog has tons of neat stuff - mixed media, quilting, journaling!!
It seems like the closer it gets to Christmas the crazier things get - I really don't like that because I want some time to just focus on the real reason for Christmas, Jesus. I have finished up most of my shopping and my mom has been so sweet to watch Emma for me some. It is hard to shop with a 3 year old - as most of you know! Hope you all have a wonderful beginning to your week and have some peace and joy come your way this holiday season.


  1. Hey Lucy, I love all the layouts, but i really like the one of your grandmother, the glimmer mist is really pretty behind the flowers and it gives alot of depth.
