Freebies on Facebook???

I have seen other scrappers and designers posting freebies on their Facebook pages... so I think I'm going to try that soon.  Hopefully this weekend I can get to that.  If you "Like" my page, Ladybug Pics n Scraps ,you will receive updates and know when I post a freebie!!

And I will be hosting a Speed Scrap at SNP this Sunday night at 9pm. 

Things have been super busy here with me and my crew.  Our teachers have been on strike, so they have been out of school, but go back on Friday.  And 2 have not been feeling well.  One needs a root canal...  Things in my classroom have been crazy... assessments and a new child...  Oh the busy-ness of life!!

Well here are a few pages I have done....
Made with my Uh-Oh

And these by Amy's Designs kit Family Love

And these pages with Snow Glaze Kit by KatyBug Scraps....

Scrapping Stats....

Oh what a year 2011 was for me and scrapping!  In August, I joined my first online forum, the September the second, and then became a designer!! 
Why do I scrap... well, it's fun and creative and to preserve our memories (and family history!)!!

Anyway some of us scrappers are posting our stats for 2011 and goals for 2012....
So here is what I have done....

I did 129 LOs for my 2010 book (yup I'm a year behind) Most of them made it to the book I ordered (4 days ago I am waiting for it to arrive in the mail!)
You can look at it HERE
It's not my usual style and very simply done with templates I made myself.

I did our 2006 Disney trip (yup, going back in time....) that was 109 LO, about 103 made it in the book. Printed and order from shutterfly.
We love looking at it all the time. You can look at it HERE I used a lot of templates from simply yin and manda girl and my own. I did do the cover myself.

and then about 99 other LOs.... none printed....

and I did do some other books with just shutterfly... not real scrapping, but we get a cute book and lots of pics to look at...

so my total for the year.... about 337 LOs finished.... I know I had a few I did not finish and deleted...

My goals for this year are to start and finish 2011 book and to try to keep up with 2012 throughout the year. 
And to get better at designing.....

Finally Finished....

Well, It took me almost a year.... but our 2010 book is done and ordered from Shutterfly!  I can't wait for it to arrive!  I feel like a stalker when I track the shipping.  I hope that mailmen are keeping it dry today since it's raining cats n dogs here on the east coast!
Books were 40% off and I had a free shipping coupon!!
Anyway... here it is if ya want to look...

It's not my usual style, but I wanted to try a book that all the pages sort of flow....

Tell me what you think.  I am not sure if I want to do this style for 2011 or some thing else. 

New kit!

My newest kit is in the store!!  It was inspired by my three daughters!  They are each so unique and creative and bright! (I could go on and on!)  So It's hard for me to find a kit that works for all their different personalities.... so I made one.
