after the crazy pics we took in napa a few weeks ago, i thought we'd give it one last ditch effort & have troy's mom take a couple of pics in front of the christmas tree this weekend. let's just say... thank goodness there is photoshop & i hope i can merge a couple together to get a decent shot. (& fix the sharpness, etc... i don't think she had it focused on us... and photoshop the black bag out of the back.) well. at least it is "real," no?

had a crop at the house this weekend. don't ask how much i finished then.... it's sad. we won't go there. BUT.... we did have a fabulous time. drank some delish margaritas, and had some wonderful laughs. but, i did make a couple of layouts with napa valley yesterday & today. so, i thought i'd share! they are both a lot brighter/ less fall-ish than i thought i'd make... trying to challenge my self to use beyond kraft. i get kinda stuck on it sometimes!
this one uses primarily santa cruz. plus a couple of buttons from my stash & licorice mist. i NEED more of that alpha! i used all of the e's! nooooo! lol.
yep... my kids never cooperate. oh well.
the idea came for this one when i was scrapping yesterday & brad paisley's song "then" came on.
incidentally, the photos in both layouts were taken in napa valley last weekend. :)
i think i am in love with these butterflies from making memories! :)
Oh! before i forget.... i have been asked multiple times what the alpha stamps i use all the time are. they are the basic upper case & lower case stamps from hero arts.

we went there with some friends this weekend. i found some new favorite wines. thank you, nic & jami for introducing us to those wineries. (the one above is vi sattui.) i can't wait to scrapbook our photos using the november studio calico kit, "napa valley" hee hee. how fortuitous, no?
