Last weekend's layouts......

I got quite a few layouts done this past weekend. I think it's because I planned it a bit better. I choose the papers for my photos and then brought most of my embellishments alongs to finish them up.

UHU Glue Roller

So I got this free UHU Glue Roller in the mail this week. Thanks, Deanne, for mentioning their free offer :-)

They also sent some patterned paper. I decided to use up some of last year's fall pics. Here's my layout:

I found the glue roller to be wonderful - just the right size, and it felt comfortable in my hand. The glue went on a little wobbly at times, and I found I had to hold it nice a straight and then it was fine. Overall very pleased with it!
I'm not sure if the offer is still open or not, but here's where I got mine for FREE!

I've been doing more cards lately -- they're nothing fancy :-) but they are a bit better than previous attempts. LOL!

Most were done for a "Card Mania" event at Dixie Pieces. All during the month of October the DT are posting card challenges. GREAT idea for getting your holiday cards done on time. Hey, maybe this year I'll even get them sent out in the mail! :-)

What I've been working on....

My kit from Scrapbook Heaven had such great colors -- I happen to LOVE browns and oranges :-)

Love these photos of my (then) 3 kiddos. I was trying to be all "professional" with the shots and poses. So funny now.....

My "not so ordinary" boy :-) He'll make some girl very happy one of these days! Love him to pieces!

These photos were ones I took last fall -- October 16th, to be exact. The weather is certainly different this year. I don't have their fall photos done yet this year and it's been so frosty out -- don't know if we'll get a chance to.

This layout was done for our Sisterhood of Scrap challenge for Monday.

Thanks for looking!

10-Day Give

I saw this while blog-surfing and thought it was an amazing idea! As a family, we will be doing this for the next 10 days. Kinda like the movie "Pay it Forward" -- and if we can make a difference in the life of one person, it will be worth it!

I can't wait to update you with how it went :-)
