First let's share the adorable creation of our January 2012 Guest Designer Lois Sokolan.
"Big Jump: 3, 2, 1" layout created by
S: CY January Guest Designer

Lois Sokolan
Lois notes: "The 'Big Jump' layout is my now 2 year old grandaughter who had just learned to jump!"
Here is a detail shot of the gorgeous title, with its' crackled look... as Lois has told us, she "loves" her chipboard!

"Sandy Claws" layout created by

Cheryl Casas
Cheryl notes:  "I used 7 different pictures that I cut out to make this scene of the Nightmare Before Christmas.  Sandy Claws was featured at Disneyland in the Haunted Mansion for the month of Christmas, so that is where we saw all of this in 2011.  When I saw the 4 boxed grid from Ann's sketch, I automatically thought of a present." 
"Field Trip: Science Museum" layout created by
 S: CY Designer 
Heather Bridges Topich
 Journaling reads:  "You told me, 'It was the best field trip ever!' I’ll never forget how you WANTED me to sit beside you on the bus and held my hand at different points throughout the day. You loved the IMAX movie about forces of nature and the crime solving lab. I loved watching you explore and play and having you all to myself. I love being with you... I love being your mom. Thank you for being so sweet. I love you!"
"Our Family" layout created by

"A Slurpee with my Bro' " layout created
 by S: CY Team Leader
Ali MacDonald
Journaling reads: Bryan, just look at the way your little brother is looking at you. He is so thrilled with the blue Slurpee that you brought back to him when Dad took you to the store! Noah knows how cool and delicious it tastes and how much he’s been enjoying it. The expression on Noah’s face as he looks at you says it all. He adores you… AND that Slurpee! Thank you for being such an awesome big brother. You always have been, and I know you always will be. 
Love you both~ Mom
