For this month I got the add-on kit and that mean kit. I have quite a few layouts and quite a few epherma pieces left. I'll probably squeeze another Christmas layout out of the leftovers even though I have no major pieces left. I added two pieces of card stock and one piece of pattern paper from My Mind's Eye.
This is another "using my scraps" kind of layout. I used all bits and pieces of paper and the big paper is from My Mind's Eye paper clippings collection, the confetti is from an old Scraptastic kit, the arrow paper is from an old studio calico collection, and I believe the arrow journaling card is also from the studio calico collection. Both flair buttons are from A Flair For Buttons on Etsy and the title is American Craft Thickers, my favorite.
This layout is a Glitter Girl challenge, the idea is to use up your twine so I have three spots of twine that I actually got from a local bakery. The excuse for my buying cupcakes is that I need twine for my layouts and I figure I can get to things that I really love in one.
The theme of the layout is a ninja party that my children went to for their very, very good friend. The kids all had swords, ninja headbands and they had a fantastic time.

I saw a sketch on pintrest and when I went to look for it, it was gone. So this is a pintrest sketch by memory!
I used My Mind's Eye nostalgia and All is Bright; Studio Calico wood veneers; Lawn Fawn washi, clip and cork frame.
My oldest daughter runs with Girls on the Run; C, my husband, coaches. My oldest son runs as a running buddy. I'm so not a runner so I hang out with kids and ark pictures!

I love working out but having six children, there is simply not enough time to give my body the attention it deserves. There is a middle ground - I take one class a week and work out at home. Clearly the results are not as good as if I were in an actual gym with equipment but my pants size isn't changing and that's good enough for me!
A few weeks back I was able to take two classes in a row. Looking back it wasn't a great idea (I was sore after) but I had a lot of fun.
The place I work out took pictures for their website and posted them on Facebook. I found myself in the front row and snagged the picture!
For this layout I used Basic Grey Bow Ties, My Mind's Eye The Bright Side and various scraps!

My husband and I were both able to attend our youngest son's open house and pre-school and he was simply over the moon. Me had pretty bad separation anxiety in the beginning and now he's doing so wonderfully!
This layout I used:
Studio Calico wood veneers and alphabets; LilyBeeDesigns Sweet Shop Label stickers; random doilies; My Mind's Eye nostalgia, Basic Grey what's up, Crate Paper fourteen,and I think a scrap of Studio Calico for the papers. The flair is from A Flair a For Buttons on etsy.

There are some layouts that are emotionally charged and some "every day" layouts. This one was just an everyday layout documenting our son hanging with his Uncle A, but as I was doing this layout, I was thinking about how much I miss my brother and his family.
I have not seen my nieces and nephews in almost five years because they live in Sweden and I'm really missing them but I am grateful that my children have their honorary Uncle A to be the uncle that they are missing.
This layout is inspired by http://lilithandscrap.blogspot.com/2012/11/sgd-sunday_11.html?m=1

This was a fun Kit for me. I really enjoyed the mix of colors, I loved the embellishments, it was just the very fun kit.
I was able to do seven layouts that were exclusive to Scraptastic. I used very few embellishments from my own stash. The kit was pretty much all inclusive, this is the first month I didn't feel like I should've ordered the add-on kit. I thought the kit was complete in and of itself.
The layouts are My Friend (my youngest son's first school friend Scrapbook Layout); You Go Girl (my youngest daughter showing spunk!); Be You, Treats Only and Harvest Party (Halloween Layout); Lucky Number Seven (Twins Seven Year Old Scrapbook Layout); Night Owls (Girls Night Out Scrapbook Layout.)
Feel free to check out my page on YouTube (www.youtube.com/MommaMacCabe) so that I could walk you through the details of the specifically else. Thanks see you soon!
