For the longest time I haven't had any inspiration when it comes to scrapping. But it seems I just got it back. So here are 4 layouts I put together.
That last Tooth Fairy layout has a photo that is from a while back. MoMo just lost another tooth this past Monday so she's got a real jack o lantern smile going on now!
cOh, and I also made some old fashioned (cruller) doughnuts. My sister gave me a book full of doughnut recipes for Christmas and these are the first ones I've tried. And they're super yummy! See, here's MoMo scarfing one down. (before losing her last tooth because now she's got a big hole on the top where her tooth used to be!) They definitely have her seal of approval. I think the next ones I'll try are the raised glazed ones...or maybe the devil's food cake...or maybe the blueberry. They all look delicious. I'm really going to have to pace myself. LOL Anyone want to come over for doughnuts?

Today I have pictures for you of my 3 latest quilts! These three are all I Spy quilts that I made for 3 of my nephews for Christmas. Each quilt is made up of 4" novelty fabric blocks. Each quilt used 114 completely different squares. Within each quilt there are no duplicates. The fabrics have so many fun things in them-everything from bees to cars to apples! I participated in 3 fabric swaps to collect so many different squares and I had over 600 squares to choose from when I put each quilt together. The fun part is that in addition to being a snuggly quilt, it is also a game! I included a label on each with a list of things to find on the quilt. My nephew Lil B and I also had a fun time finding an object on the quilt and then challenging the other to find it. I know I had a lot of fun making the quilts and I hope that my nephews enjoy them.
We spend Christmas at my Mom and Dad's house this year and with all my brothers and sisters and nieces and nephews there it was a full house! But despite (or maybe because of) the tight quarters we had a great time. All the cousins have such a great time together. Wish we lived closer together but I do feel fortunate that we usually get most everyone together at last once a year. Well, I guess I better get off the computer and get to making dinner. Until next time...
