Rev label, 2x2 ice cream carton and scoop. Inside I used Gazebo font and 'birthday' from the Rev happy birthday phrase, scoops of ice cream from the banana split die, cone from the 2x2 ice cream cone, and the 2x2 splat for the drips, and added lots of stickles in neapolitan 'flavors'.

Poor Emmy! Her first snow at 12 months. She looks rather unhappy here, but she loved playing out in the snow. Trouble is, when you're only two feet tall and there are six inches of snow on the ground, it's hard to walk. Especially if you only just learned how!

I love the look on Gracie's face in these pics. She loves fishing with grampa Randy, she just doesn't care all that much for actually catching fish. LOL No touching of the fish for this girly girl. LOL

Journaling in the auto maintenance folder:
Obviously, Randy needed a work vehicle while the old beast was waiting for repairs. So off he went in search of a work truck. After his first three snow covered choices didn't even turn over, he found this one and it started on the first try. Big selling point! After a little clean up and a couple of new tires, he's back in business. And the best part, it's an automatic so I can drive it too...if he ever gets the old Ford back on the road again, that is. (I mean WHEN.) Happy New Year!

The truck started acting up around Thanksgiving time; actually I think it was before then. Randy replaced this part and it would run ok, then he'd replace that part and it would run ok but still not good, and so it went, replacing just one more thing, until finally it wouldn't run at all. Of course, then the snow came and it got so cold he couldn't work on it anymore for fear of breaking wires from the brutal cold freezing them. So, after years (and I do mean years!) of trying to convince him to get another truck, he finally had no choice. (Which brings us to the sequel--layout in progress.) It has now become a grudge match and he is determined to get that beast running again if it kills him! Pics were taken Christmas Eve Day. As of today, January 16, 2009, it is still sitting there, in the same spot in the driveway, laughing at Randy. Cruel!!

Pattern papers are Basic Grey, Mellow. Pattern ribbons are a few of the American Crafts spools I picked up at Craft Warehouse on Friday, ovals and scallops are Spellbinders dies, eggs and carton are 2x2 QK, title is Bright, journaling box is the QK Club recipe card. Other dies: cookies from the Rev cookies and milk doublekutz, and the 2x2 chocolate drop.
Journaling reads: Oct. 2008 - You did it! You cracked an egg without getting any shells in it! You were so proud and I was so impressed. We had a fun time making White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies. But it was even more fun laughing at Grampa Randy just trying to say the name right.

Your Word is "Love"
You see life as possibility to form deep connections with a few people.
Relationships are the center of your world, and you always take time to bond with those you love.
You are caring and giving. You enjoy helping those you love.
And when it comes to romantic love, you feel passionately ... even in a very long term relationship.

1) This adorable crown is the perfect accent for a Princess (or Prince) party.
2) This treat box was easier to make than it looks. Actually, I cheated, but even so.....I traced around a box I received as a gift and used it as a template. Cut it out, make a few score lines, and voila! Adorable treat box. I used the Rev label and the December QK Club die, chess pieces, to embellish and the 2x2 crown for a tag. I don't belong to a chess club, but I had to use these dies and thought this would be the cutest little goody if I did belong to a chess club. LOL!
Here is the box opened to see how easy it was to make.
Here is the side view of the treat bag. See how simple it is.

Sorry for the kittywompus photo here - it's attached with temporary adhesive (and slipped in the scanner obviously) as I will be replacing the actual photo when I get a good one printed out. I printed this one myself and the photo paper I got is absolute crud and the photo looks like doody in real life. :( Anyway, for this page I used QuicKutz Rev0149 doublekutz damask die, Rev0147 label, and cookie cutter alpha, MaryJane for the monogram. The papers are from Scrapbuggy's December QuicKitz, Basic Grey Eva collection. This is one of my favorite color combinations and truly, a scan doesn't do them justice. Photo is my daughter and her family; scanned, cropped and enlarged from her Christmas card. TFL!
