Wow, what a long time since I have posted here! (If you follow me here but not on Facebook I would like to invite you to like my facebook page at Scrappinsweeties Escape where I have been better at posting at.)  November took a surprising turn that none of us were expecting that is for sure. Makayla Elexus was born on Nov. 6, 2013 weighing in at 7lbs 6oz.and was 19" long. She finally arrived by emergency C-Section when they found her breech. Luckily it all went ok, but it was very rushed and scary for a bit. Having a breech baby has brought a lot of interesting challenges from the recovery, to taking care of her. We are so very blessed to have her and I am finally back on my feet and getting things going. Yes, she turned 3 months yesterday but it sure doesn't seem like it has been 3 months already!! If you have not had or been around a breech baby before I can tell you that our breech baby came out in a 90 degree angle and stayed that way for over 2 weeks. Her legs finally relaxed and she is just fine now. There is not any worries about her hips as her sonograms have came back fine, praise God! So here is a few pictures of Makayla.

Artbooking Made Easy: Everyday Layouts (S01E08)

Here is the first one of many to come!

I have been slowly working on this mini album cut from the Artbooking Cartridge. I was amazed at how quickly and easily it came together once I picked the theme, papers, and embellishments to get started on it. I am in love with how it turned out. Our daughter who is 14 took these for us. I think she did an amazing job, but I might be a little bit biased...LOL You really have to try this cartridge out for yourself. I can't explain to you how easy this makes it for mini albums and scrapbook layouts! I also have to give a shout out to a VERY special friend who helped me aquire the cartridge- Ladean Kolb. She is a wonderful friend and customer who knew I wanted it for the baby mini album and pages that it has on it. Thank you SO VERY much Ladean!

So there you have it, the first of many items to come from the artbooking cartridge!

Here is the first of the Artbooking cartridge projects to come. This looks pretty boring and plain right now but I promise it will look better once she is born and pictures are added. It also looks better when shown with the whole nursery (which is a mess but I will be posting pics later). The sock monkey is from the Sugar and Spice cartridge but everything else is from the Artbooking cartridge.

Frame pg. 77  Photo Mat 2(shift) Used the 12x24" mat and used the fit to page setting
Giraffe pg. 50  Icon key + (shift) used the relative size setting and cut at 2.5"
Lion pg. 51 Icon key + (shift)  used the relative size setting and cut at 2.5"

This month it is Scandinavian Wishes which makes very cute cards and home decor. It would also be a nice addition to your scrapbook pages. You can purchase this set for this month only either by paying full price ($17.95) or by purchasing $50.00 in other products and adding this in for only $5.00 more!! What a great deal!! You can find a link to the right to click on to take you directly to my store to purchase it. I am hoping to play with it today, but for now here is the main image to show you a sampling of what you can do with it.
