Hello blog friends! Man it has been a long time since I posted. Lots has happened since August including getting my dream job teaching 3rd grade and losing said job 2 months later. It was devastating to say the least but I am trusting God's plan and know that He is in control. He led me to a new job teaching Title 1 and I am excited to be able to still be in the teaching field and to fill little minds with knowledge. :)

In the past 4 weeks, I have spent a lot of time being crafty. I have worked on lots of scrapbook pages and I have also started prepping my December Daily album. More on that later....

These are a few of my favorite layouts from the past few weeks.

This layout is one of the ones I have created to document my trip to Israel in 2011. I am excited to finally be able to get these pictures and my thoughts down in my scrapbooks. I created the Jerusalem skyline with my Silhouette to add some fun detail to these photos of our first view of the city of Jerusalem.
This layout just came together so well and I love the graphic feel to it. The pictures are from our first night when we stayed in Tel Aviv.

I really love this layout for so many reasons. I love the photo one of my fellow travelers snapped of me with my camera I also love the colors in the photos and how well the patterned papers coordinate with the photos. And lastly I love the handwritten title. It is my own handwriting that I captured on my iPad with the Bamboo app and turned into a diecut with my Silhouette software.

I also have been working on some of my Disney 2009 photos. This one was inspired by a challenge over at to scrap a Disney villain. I chose these fun photos of my dad and I with Darth Vader during Star Wars Weekends at Hollywood Studios. I love the black, red, and silver combo on here and the fun hexagon shapes.
I will be back later this week to share the beginnings of my December Daily album. It is looking awesome and I can't wait for the holiday season to start so I can begin adding my photos and memories to the pages of my album. :)

Oh wow, Janeen, so sorry to hear about that job. I am glad to hear you have found another though.

Love your pages. How cool that you captured your handwriting and used it to cut your title. I love the skyline you cut as well. So neat!! Oh the Darth page is so fun. I will have to show my 7 yr old. He is a HUGE Star Wars fan!! :)

I get so inspired seeing your pages! I love the Jerusalem skyline. My mom gave me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas, and I just got it out of the box. May I ask you for some suggestions for where to look for lessons in how to create custom designs like your skyline?
