January Razzill Dazzill Bazzill

This week has been a true delight! My week started with the surprise arrival of my first grandson, Mr. Linken Douglas Allen. It seems it has become the pattern that these grandchildren of mine like to make a grand entrance. Nikki had a sudden onset of preeclampsia that lead to an emergency C-section. After an emotional roller coaster week of "tomorrows" the new little family is at home and all is well.

It was nice to be surrounded by friends when my heart was in Arizona and my body in Texas. Thank you Razzill Dazzill Gals for allowing me to share my joys and sorrows with you. You made this week bearable. I hope you enjoyed the techniques and the layouts!

If you are unable to attend class but would still enjoy having the kits. Sign up and state you would like kit only.

My bucket over flows!

When my children where young I used a bucket for an anology of life. We cannot control how people will treat you or how they will react to the way we treat them. I do feel that as a whole, if you treat people in a giving and loving way they will treat you the same. With this belief I used a bucket as a visual to teach my children. As my children learned to serve each other they were able to put a rock in their brother's bucket. Any act of kindness equaled another rock and if anyone felt hurt by any family member they took a rock out of their bucket. We would then chat about why the rock was removed and how the offender could put it back, I knew we could not control what happened outside our home but I felt as a family we could make sure every family member had a full bucket when they left for school or work.

I want to share with you that my bucket is over flowing, In a matter of days I went from completely empty bucket to one that over flows. Thank you for your emails, calls, hugs, and total support. I would be lying if I told you I never dreamed of owning my own business; it was just always a dream I was to chicken to pursue, you all gave me the confidence to take that leap. With my bucket so full I feel I am flying. Thank you.

To my family, thank you for the new computers, your technology support, dedicated labor in helping me kit, for supplying me material and a place to share my passion.

To my Lickety Slip friends, thank you for having faith in me and trusting me. Your three, six and nine month commitment has given me the means to make Scrapp'n Savvy.

To my Razzill Dazzill Gals, thank you for giving me an avenue to spread my wings and grow. You give me the drive to sharpen my skills and expand my knowledge. Coming up with new tchniques every month is the type of challenge I thrive on. Your desire for the coordinating layouts will help Scrapp'n Savvy find a more permanent home.

So I again Thank you. .

"Mother Bazzill" is back!

We also know her as Millie, the amazing creator of the four generation’s scrapbook and the inspiration behind the Bazzill Heritage Line. After a heroic struggle with breast cancer, followed by another cancer threat of her thyroid that left her with a beautiful trach, she is now ready to start teaching in a smaller more personable atmosphere. She is truly a punch queen who will inspire you in scrapbooking and in life. You can sign up for her class Heritage Memories or class kits right here on my blog!

Lickety Slip 2010 is a family album we create one month at a time. The concept behind this class is to make your layouts and 4x6 journaling blocks the month before so as you document your memories as you live them. With this concept you already know if you need a horizontal or vertical picture for your layouts and all you need to do is place the picture and add journaling. For 2010 I have chosen the S.E.I. Moravia Line. It has a very rich and classy look. This class was a Bazzill product inspiration. With their Lickety Slip Album scrapbooking couldn’t be easier. Each class kit includes the product for two 12”x 12” layouts, one layout being interactive, and two 4x6 journaling blocks.

Razzill – Dazzill – Bazzill is also inspired by Bazzill. Back when Bazzill was just getting started my wonderful brother “Mr. Bazzill” and his wife Marti would fly me to Arizona for my own personal get-a-way. I would take classes at Scrapbooks – Etc. from the very best teachers. They inspired me and gave me the desire to teach as well. In this class you make four 12”x 12” layouts using Bazzill’s latest and greatest!

Cricut Cards is designed to help you get the most out of your Cricut and make four fun cards as well. Millie does use more than just punches; she loves her Cricut and is excited to share her knowledge of this amazing personal die-cutting system

For any class offered on my blog you are welcome to sign up for kits only. We ask that you state that in the notes when you sign up.

My local friends I would love to have you join me on a girl’s night out at our PJ Crop. So many times I have hosted a crop at my past employment and just longed to sit a scrapbook with you girls. In this setting I plan to do just that! So get comfortable even if it means to come in your pajamas for a night of cropping. We will have homemade food and a make-n-take.

Happy Scrap’n
(The people in the pictures featured on these layouts are Millie and her loving husband Orin and their children - Doug, Karrie and Geoff.

Just for kicks!

I put some of my other favorite photo's on some other layouts we did this year in RDB! Thought I would share!My personal favorite. . .

now I just need to journal!
Happy New Year may this year bring you much joy!

Techonology - a love/hate relationship!

Sorry this is being posted so late in the day. I have been working on the blog entry way too long. I love the new computers my boys gave me for Christmas but they have taken me out of my comfort zone with new programs to learn.

As promised, here are the coordinating layouts from the December Razzill Dazzill Bazzill class! I hope you enjoy them. I loved putting the photos onto the layout because I was able to reminisce my cherished Christmas 2009 memories.

I titled this first one "First Christmas". It was my first grandchild's first Christmas and it was so fun!

Every year we make graham cracker trains however this year we did something a little bit different - ginger bread trees! It was a little bit of Forced Family Fun but by the end I think we all had a good time and they were quite proud of their work.

It's tradition! Christmas Eve you will find the Allen Family acting out the Christmas story, eating Mexican food, caroling and opening a present that we know will be new pajamas! I think I enjoy this day more then Christmas itself.

Just like many homes we do new P.J.'s for Christmas after all it is important to look good for your pictures Hehehe! I try so hard to make them unique to fit the personalities of each one of my kiddos. I love you guys (((HUG)))
