What's your favorite?

 I was just thinking about this and thought I'd ask here....is there a project that you've done that sticks out in your head as being a favorite?  One that came together better than you expected.  One that you were able to capture the essence of the photos.  

 

For me it's an album I made about a Jamaica trip.  I made it way back in September of 2007 but it's still something I look at regularly.  

 

Do you have a favorite of your own?

My Two Peas Story

My 2Peas Story

 In the summer of 2000 I discovered scrapbooking while in the check out lane at Wal-Mart.  I found a Scrapbooks Etc and browsed it while I waited.  It was like the light to my paper, sticker, and pen heaven.  I dove right into the hobby buying up all I could find locally, which wasn't much.  So then I turned to my computer and searched for scrapbook stores......and www.twopeasinabucket.com appeared.  I believe I joined the 2peas community in September of 2000.  I loved posting and browsing the Gallery.  At work I would have my browser open to 2peas Gallery just watching layouts getting posted.....and new products added to shopping.:)  After work I would change straight into my pajamas and take up camp at my scrapbook table.  It was like an addiction...a high.  I couldn't wait to get home and scrap.  My layouts weren't complete until I had scanned them and posted to the Gallery.  Then it was done.  One of my biggest first projects was doing a Cancun album from a recent vacation.  And once I finished it I made one for my mom too.  So it pretty much looked like I was on vacation all the time.:)  

Almost exactly a year later I was asked to be a Garden Girl.  I was thrilled beyond belief!  I think my first Garden was October 2001.  My life has changed so much since those first scrapbooking days.  I went from being the 'young' scrapper to a 'mother of 3 children scrapper'.:)  But 2peas has always been there!

Why I love to scrapbook....

 Because my boys love looking at pages about themselves.  Maddox is so funny, he flips through the books only to slow down when he sees a picture of himself.  Five year olds are fun, huh?

And Crew, he's recently taken an interest in photos and my pages.  He particularly loved this page  I did this month.  I'm sure it's because of the football.  I had to stop him from pulling the buttons off several times, but that's the fun part.  

Good Throw!

Here's a link to the layout, and to the Paper Piecing Article.

Happy Holidays and all that good stuff!!

 I pretty much love my card this year.  I lifted the design from an online site....need to look it up again and find the link....I was so in love with the colors and clean design.  But no way could I pay $2.50 a card!  So, I made my own.  I added some Doodlebug glitter to a few of the dots to the actual cards.  This one is just the digital image....so imagine a few sparkles.:)

The past few years I've used a collage of photos from the year.  Mostly because I hadn't captured a perfect Christmas card shot.  But this year, I got a photo I loved of my naughty little boys.:)

The Mid-Month Garden!

 This was a fun release for me.  Sometimes you are feeling it and sometimes you aren't.  For some reason, despite the length of my to-do list this month, I was feeling scrappy.:)  One of my favorites was the Rolodex I made for my dad.....

Look here!

It felt good to get a couple things checked off my to-do list while working on the Garden this month.  I also managed to get our teachers' gifts wrapped in time and made these cute tags to go with them....

 

Now, let's see if I did this right!
