Savvy n Sassy December Projects

This month I was so so happy to get to work with the All My Yesterday’s kit! This kit has so many of my favorites, I felt like it was built for me! All my favorite laces are included, as well as my all-time favorite ribbon-the black and white braid! I have tons of ribbon and trim to work with still, but wih Christmas just around the corner, I decided I better share what I have so far.

So Sweet Layout

This layout used lace from the kit, organza from the store, and yummy Sweet Cakes paper by Pink Paislee (get some while you can!)

Snowflake Ornament and Stand

Rhinestone trim and lace from the kit embellish the stand for this glittered snowflake ornament.

(I have to apologize for some of my photos this month, as my normal photo place is currently taken up by a Christmas tree.)

Goddard Girls

For this simple layout, I just used black trim from the kit to frame the photo.

Story of Me Altered Journal

Once again used some of my favorite lace from the kit here. Also added some of my favorite Olive Grosgrain from the store. I love how the natural laces coordinate with these October Afternoon papers!

Apples to Apples Scrapbook Album

Admitedly, another album is the last thing I need, but these papers have been asking to be used for a long time and I finally gave in. Laces from the kit and olive dot grosgrain are used on the cover, as well as throughout the 15 pages of the album. Here are a few samples pages from inside:

3 year checkup

i keep forgetting to post this.

at her three year checkup, autumn was…

39 inches tall (94th percentile)
34 pounds (80th?)

think she got some tall genes somewhere? 🙂

Autumn is obsessed with cameras. She is constantly making off with Matt’s phone or my phone to use it to take pictures. We’ve been talking about cameras for a while now. So I told her she needed to ask Santa for a camera for Christmas. (We already got one for her, so it’s a pretty sure thing.)

I’m thinking this means that when we go see Santa she’ll ask him then, or maybe we’ll write a letter.

Not Autumn. She stands in the middle of the living room and yells at the top of her voice “Santa, bring me a camera for Christmas!!!”

And whenever it crosses her mind, she yells at him again.

Toys R Us

Autumn comes running into the room all excited, waving the Toys R Us ad from Sunday’s paper…

“Mommy, mommy, look! I found a toy menu!!!”
