Baby it's Cold Outside- party

So lately I've been busy with some fun party stuff. If you follow me on instagram you'll know what I mean. My oldest brother and his wife are having there first child together! Everyone is so excited for them and can't wait to meet little Adam (love that name, and not only for the fact that I'm Eve). When we found out they are having a boy I know right away I needed to put together a shower. A while back on Hostess with the Mostess blog they had a freebie of printable, HERE. Its so sweet and cute, so we took those down loads and made our shower with them. Here are some photos of the decorations I put together with my mom!

We made a hot cocoa bar/ sweets table! it was a hit!


So happy with the way my circle banner turned out! I want to hang it in my sons room now!

My mom thought of hanging baby "laundry", and this is the "wishing" tree with note cards.
One of the activities we did was to make Onsies for the babys first months

My Brother and his wife!
Us ladies!

Jan. Block Party PT4

I feel so proud of my self that I've created 8 layouts (one is a 2 page layouts, so I guess its 9 pages!). I kinda just blew my mind! Since finishing off the kits I've worked on other project and feel as though I have lost my mojo for scrapbooking. Yet I'm itching to scrap something, something in me is missing and can't get the ball rolling (I even went shopping and bought a few papers, still nothing). So that means I haven't touched the February kit and the March kit will be shipping really soon! Yikes! I need my mojo back!!!
While I'm working on that, here are the last 2 layouts I created using Jan Kit Block Party. For this first one I ended up buy the background paper at my local craft store and knew it would work really well with this kit. I just love the design and knew I was gonna use it as a full background of a layout. From there its pretty simple and straight forward.
The second layout is a 2page, I ended up buying another sheet of the cloud paper cuz I only had scraps left and I just love it with the colorful circle and arrow paper. Thats what I wanted to do with that layout, plus use more of that awesome washi tape! Enjoy!

Jan. Block Party PT3

For the first layouts title was inspired by my journaling (that doesn't happen). And as for the layout its from Basic Grey Blog an older sketch they happened to have. I really wasn't planning to do a lot of journaling but when I kept looking at the photos I kept remember little bit here and there. I also used some scrap paper from an older Studio Calico Kit.
For the second layout I really like the background paper but didn't know how to use it in other layouts, so I decided to just use the whole page. I usually don't like to use a whole 12x12 sheet for a background because I want to get the most use of one page, but in this case I was running low on ideas and scraps. Enjoy!
