My 1st "regular" CT was MagsGraphics -- I love her stuff... so fun to play with... and SO much in tune with the growing years of our 3 sons. Here are the layouts I did in May-July10 with her latest and some of my favorite kits.
This was a Christmas to remember. We celebrated the birthday of our Lord Jesus and then opened gifts. The boys were absolutely thrilled with their new tonka trucks and sleeping bags.
Then came the picture that HAD to be scrapped... little Abigail in her sunflower dress... SO VERY adorable!!!!!!! Mags collaborated with 88DesignsByM for Farmer's Market. It was absolutely perfect for scrappin' this photo :-)

Mags newest designs are a couple build-a-kits called Jack & Luke. The colors are deep & rich and are perfect for scrapping little boys!! (or big ones). I had tons of fun putting this one together using the 1st paper pack and a couple of frame clusters. I made more elements by experimenting with the distort/twirl layers and swirling and more... it was a very challenging layout to do with only the papers to work with this time 'round. If you have boys, be sure and add these fabulous versitile kits to your collection.
JOY of Eating!
This precious little boy was the 2nd boy to join our growing family... and he became our JOYFUL eater (and continued to be into his adult years!).

Then, here's one of my favorite MagsGraphics kits... Freedom. We have many things to celebrate here in our country... freedom that is a very precious commodity in today's world, friendships that we hold dear, family and fellowship of believer's—those who share our faith in the risen Lord, Almighty God, my Saviour—the Lord Jesus Christ.
Friends = FUN!
This layout came about as a "challenge" from a dear friend of ours. After emailing her the layout I did for one of the July challenges over at Digitals (and including a picture I had wanted to use but didn't fit the page), she said "Ha Ha HA, that deserves it's own page!"... and inspiration hit and wala! another layout celebrating our friendship.

Ethan's 3rd Birthday
Ethan loves Buzz Lightyear. During our visit to MI in Feb10, he had a grand 'ole time playing with a little buzz that we brought him and he shared his big buzz with his gramps... many fun photos of that duo romping in the living room of my parents house.
