December 2011 pages

December layout features our holiday gathering. Our son, Mark's girlfriend, Caroline, flies in from Maine to join us and meet the family from Cleveland.

I use some acrylic accents to surround our family.

We "Tebow" this santa and other ramdom objects.
Our Christmas greeting is featured on this page as well.

Perfect concert

I spent 12 glorious days with Mark on a road trip to Colorado and vacationing in and around Boulder, Colorado. During that small window our two current favorite bands play the most beautiful venue very close to Boulder. Gorgeous historic Red Rocks Amphitheater is the backdrop for a beat breaking evening with Ghosts and Thieves! Woo-hoo!

Project 12 September edition

This is quite a horrible photo of a great layout! (I'll retake it tomorrow.) For much of September Mark and I were separate. While he studied at culinary school in Boulder, I taught and did yoga back here. Many other adventures ensued! He even joined me the last week of the month to celebrate his school break, our anniversary, and his birthday.

Road Trip

This layout has so many different patterns and methods incorporated. As I review this, I recall how therapeutic it was to complete this layout.
First off, the subject: what a fun three days! The sky was so gorgeous the whole trip. Mark and I really enjoyed our adventure together.
The layout: how happy was I to find these cool papers on clearance? Woo-hoo! I love the old-timey feel of the papers for this road trip. I made a little stamp out of an old map, used a circle punch for two photos, splashed some painting and adhered stickers. I also scissored details, and used a sketch. I tried three different ways to reduce this awesome 12 x 12 to a set of 8 x 8 pages to include in a book.

Acrylic layout

This layout was begun by Stacey and given to me many months ago. Thanks to Lori's acrylic challenge a deadline for my project motivated me to complete it. I love adding feathers to projects and enjoy playing with the colored baker's twine. And, of course, love yoga!
