Reindeer Cheer + A Free File

Well early this morning I took out the last two Studio Calico kits plus the add-ons I bought.  Threw them all in a pile and started scrapping.  


I am still loving the 8x12 size.  I have a feeling you will be seeing a lot of them ;)


Reindeer Cheer is the font Lemon Drop if you want to google it and download for free.  You can also download this title I made HERE.


and have a very Merry Christmas, from all of us here in the Chesnick house.

Parker at 6 Months


Well Parker has survived MOMMIES first 6 months LOL.  I know I say this every month, but she is SO BIG.  Our Pediatrician rocks and is always so happy to see how big she is.  Currently weighing in at 19lb 11oz and 28" long.  Super baby!


She is rockin the solid foods.  So much so that we are tasting food off mommy and daddy's plate during meals.  She has such a good time playing with her food among other things.  


She hates being on her tummy, so she does what I call half-ass crawl.  She sits up very well!  She is starting to pull herself up on things here and there.  Her favorite game is to throw things and watch mommy pick them up.  Over and over.... hilarious.


She is always on the move when left to her own devices.  Curious little girl.  I can't wait for Christmas!  It's going to be so much fun.  And as always here is her 5 month baby book layout.  Made using American Crafts Dear Lizzy.

We are getting ready here in the Chesnick house.  Lots of photos have been taken.  Here are a few from the past week or so. 


Grandma sent her a goodie box.  We just tried everything on at once.  She still rocks it. 


She is priming to be Carrie Underwood in Christmas dress changes.  This is 1 of 3. 


Libby is getting braver.  Parker is showing her just how pretty her dress is. 


She really loved the lights!

Parker at 5 months 073

she is still growing at a rapid pace.  18lbs and we figure roughly 26" or so.  We didn't measure.  

Parker at 5 months 132

She has two teeth, started solids..pears are her fav!  She is also rolling around like crazy.  If she stayed on her belly long enough she would be crawling.  Maybe next month.

Fall Projects + Some free files

I have a couple layouts, couple cards and suches.  First up is a layout and card made using Little Yellow Bicycles Acorn Hollow.  I am in love. 



if you like my title you can have it here, made by me ;)


I made this card using Acorn Hollow as well and Xyron products for our blog swap last week. the bow seems to be a new trend coming with LYB products.



Now this layout was made with My Minds Eye The Sweetest Thing.  How did I miss this line?  It is SO cute.  Also one of my favorite photos of Parker. 


I cut this title out of vellum and you can also have this file, right here



and last but not least we have 3 halloween cards made using American Crafts Pumpkin Patch.  I love shaped cards!  The cauldron seems to be a big hit. 




Have a good one and for those in the East like me stay safe!
