I have been scrap happy over Christmas Break! This is a VERY good thing! A group of us on SCS called the PPPHM challenged each other to do 12 layouts over break (several of us are on vaca, or teachers etc). I must say I am doing better than expected! I have 8 of them done! I also got to spend a day scrappin and playing with my friends Cricut Expression! So it has been a very scrappy break!
This layout is of my boys opening stockings LAST christmas at my Grammies (our last one there sadly, she no longer lives on her own on the farm :C)This is a sketch off of Got Sketch? Valerie has some GREAT sketches! I even did her mini class awhile back. This is my first layout that I used my new sewing machine on!!! Just a little stitching but I LOVE it! TFL!

    Great layout. I love the stocking part of Christmas. The DSP you used is great too.

  9. Great page. I love the layout and your stitching on the bottom. I am going to have to get brave and use my sewing machine on something other than cloth. The pictures are adorable.

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
