I'm Back {With Layouts!}

Sorry to be MIA for so long. With the busyness of the Christmas season and a pretty major health scare for my nephew, I just didn't get online as much as I normally do.
Happy to report that my nephew is going to be just fine and things are starting to settle down.
Thought I'd share that Christmas layout I promised you many moons ago.

Last year, just after the holidays, we took the boys to Jackson County to see Chuck's grandmas. We spent the night in Lexington and did some exploring the next morning. Lexington Mall (attached to Rupp Arena) had some amazing Christmas decorations-I took a ton of photos.
I used the Making Memories Fa La La line to create this layout. I also grabbed some Thickers from my stash for the title and some jelly stickers from MAMBI for embellishment. Hard to see but there's some bling on this page too-bottom left corner and at the top of the journaling spot. I can't for the life of me remember where I got that bling.
And since the holidays are over (but I still have a ton of holiday layouts to share-I did some scrapbooking while on vacation!), I thought I'd share a non-Christmas layout I recently completed.
My 6 year old was playing on a treadmill at a neghbor's house and took a spill. He looked much worse than the injuries really were. This happened back in March/April when my 9 year old got injured and had to go to Urgent Care 3 times in a week.
Never a dull moment with these boys. I think it's really important to capture those not so perfect moments too-so here's a layout about "The Treadmill Incident".

I used the Comso Cricket Boyfriend line for this. I seriously love me some Cosmo Cricket-use their stuff ALL THE TIME! Snagged some more Thickers for the title and Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type stickers for the sub-title. {Told you I loved CC!}

Don't you just love the "give" band-aid?
I {heart} those Tiny Type letter stickers!

So very true!
I've set a goal of 2 layouts a week for 2011. I even blocked time on my calendar each week to keep me honest. Hopefully, I'll be more successful with this goal than I was with my 2010 goal (a picture a day).
Happy New Year!
