More Football digital layout from the Sweetshoppedesigns

Any fan of football would understand…

Today was a historical moment at our house, if you read the layout you will see.  I love it just because my son can’t STAND to admit he likes the Seahawks but it’s a challenge for him to admit after all these years that he will like the Seahawks again.   He has always been the opposite of what I say, I say black he says white I say chocolate he say vanilla and the kid LOVES chocolate!  So this is a huge deal for us, and funnier than you can imagine in a post.  

Journaling isn’t my strongest point in scrapbooking but there wasn’t enough room for this one to tell all but good enough!  He will KILL me when he see’s this post!  LOL  What an evil mother I am!

Goodbye 49rs


Sorry 49’r fans.  I still love having you all here too.  It’s just a game to me.  Fun and even more fun now that he is in high school ball.  I am always asking questions about the game and what they do, so I can learn what the importance of his role is in the game.  They said some awesome stuff about him in the banquet I was such a proud mom I wanted to stand up and cheer him on but I am sure he would have died of embarrassment.  It started out how quiet he was… didn’t think they were talking about my boy at first then the coach went further and further more towards how he performed, by the end of the year he really pulled through.  They had only 3 losses this whole year and he was a proud player to help be a winner.  He didn’t make the basketball team but after the banquet I actually got him into weight training classes after school and that is going to really boost his confidence.  Even better he is excited about something he planned on never doing!  He needs it for his runner’s knee and he will be lookin’ good for all those girls I am gonna have to chase off until he is old enough!  I am safe as long as sports are more important!  Teens are a blast!

I hope you had a great crafty weekend too.  Here we are trying to get ready for the holidays and it isn’t coming naturally for me.  It been a challenging month on my favorite months to craft from Halloween to Valentines day but hopefully I get some more mojo and able to post more inspiration for you, for new layouts and projects.  Have a wonderful week!

Studio J Saturday Episode 8 – Quality of prints

Hi this is Lissa … here again showing you  Close to My Heart’s Studio J, for Dr Phil Scraps.

Well I made a new layout to show you some new stuff in Studio J.. The New Skylark papers.  My little princess wants a baby album so I am working hard on making her one.  The problem is being a photographer and using those skills everyday for 3 months made a WHOLE LOT of images!  I am going to have to learn how to downsize!

The new collections were added on February 1st, for everyone to use.  I am not a fan of blue for girls but this really worked well even for this layout.  I hated pink until I got pregnant with her, then everything had to be pink everywhere!  I love the way it turned out.  I took many hands and feet photos.  It is hard to choose just one set.


Then I also wanted to show you the quality of these prints I have been receiving in Studio J.. I know I can never show the true quality through another lens you would have to see it in person but just to show you the professional prints they provide are outstanding.

Just click on the picture and it will enlarge so you can get a good look then click on the arrow to the right to navigate.

  The quality is amazing, the price is affordable ESPECIALLY in the month of March the price will be AMAZING ALL month so it is a fast easy way to catch up on your old photos!  If you snooze you loose on the great price!

Have you tried it yet?  Any questions?  I would love to answer them for you!  If you haven’t …
