MIA, CHA and LOA

Sorry I have been MIA, but wow...you guys are tough...I took a few days off for the holidays and lost 4 followers. Oh well. Some things are more important huh?

Well I hope you did have a wonderful time of holidays and fun. We sure did. We enjoyed Christmas...and then the next two days were just awesome. We laid around the house, watched tv, played games, read new books...and stayed in our PJ's pretty much all day. We all need days like that.

I have a bunch of My Little Shoebox to share with you. All of these use the "Summer Breeze" line from MLS.

First, a layout from last CHA (more about the Winter CHA to come):



That heart is just a collage of diecuts and scrap paper. I used Helmar adhesives...used the 450 Quick Dry for most everything and then popped the birds up with the Liquid Scrap Dots. Here are the close up's:





And here is another layout where I played a lot with die cuts. :)



For this layout I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry, Zapdots and Liquid Scrap Dots.

And my close up's:








And then I just LOVE the way this layout turned out...



The pictures are of hubby dipping the boys in the river and getting their hair wet. I used the Helmar 450 Quick Dry and the Liquid Scrap Dots again. Here are the close up's:




And finally, a card:



That pink is the backside of the banner paper. I had previously cut a banner out, and I liked the way it looked so I left it like that. :)

SO....

Winter CHA is quickly approaching! And yep...I will be there again. :) Very excited about this. I will once again be at the MLS booth, so stop by and say hi if you are there. I am already starting to work on projects and I can't wait to share all the new stuff with you all.

And in case you are wondering about my blog post title, the LOA stands for...wait for it....nothing. :) I just thought I should have another 3 letter acronym that ended in "A". Perhaps we should say it stands for layouts aplenty. :)

Ok...have a wonderful day!!!

hey hey you must be so excited about CHA.
Was wondering if they were a new sketch this week at SC. I didnt find a post, but maybe I missed it. I'm sorta taking a break from scrapping not by choice though.
