Lickety Slip 2013

We are well on our way into 2013 with Lickety Slip.  For those of you that don't know this is a 13 month class that creates a family album.  Each month we do 2 pages, one of which is interactive. Sometimes I struggle to create a new interactive page each month but in the end I love what I come up with!  I love the people that have been doing these albums with me that last couple of years.  What a fun bunch!  They have used them for all sorts of events too. This is the front page of this year's album.

 Here is a quick sample of the January pages.

Friday Night Crop

Time for another Friday Night Crop. I spent the night on my side, not a shocker these days. I have to thank my mom and Margene for keeping Scrapp'n Savvy afloat. I am told dinner was yummy. Here is a pic of the smoked chicken fettuccine.

 Then there was super yummy chocolate cake. The background are Leslie's February Layout from Fast, Fun, & Done.
Here are some peeps scrapping the night away.
And finally the make-n-take. I needed some thank you cards to send to those that have helped our family this last week or so. So I figured why not kill 2birds with one stone. I am in love with the Sizzix Pop-n-Cuts designed by Karen Burniston. I have not made a "boring" card since Karen showed me how easy these were. I hope you enjoy!!

Razzill Dazzill Class 1/31/13

I have had to turn over the reigns for this month's class. I had to have a procedure last Friday to repair a torn retina. As a result, I am restricted to my left side for 23 hours a day. It has not been fun or easy!!!

Mom, Alec, and Terri have been life savers! They have helped to design the layouts (with me giving my 2 cents from the couch) and will be teaching it for me. And of course Scrappy has been a big help too!

Scrappy making sure I stay on my side when I am sleeping!

Thank goodness they are patient!!

We will be using the Inkadinkado Oval Stamping Gear.
What a fun tool that allows you to stamp arcs, and oval shapes onto your layout. Tired of trying to and it not being just right? The Inkadinkado will fix that for you!! Check out the layouts below and if you like the stamping come by the store and get one!
