I can read

Switching focus this layout is about my daughter. After having a bumpy start with learning to read, we decided an incentive, My Little Pony amusement park, was in order. Less than 6 weeks later she had earned that toy.

Supplies: Paper & Library card stamp is Close to my Heart. Ribbon is American Crafts. Chipboard is Making Memories I believe. And of course, I had to use stickles from Ranger.

Thanks for visiting!

Some scrapbooking

I've done some scrapbooking which always makes me happy. This layout arose because of that swimsuit picture of my son. I couldn't help but look at it and think it looks like those pictures you would see in the teen magazines. Makes me wonder what my son will be like as a teenager then an adult. Perhaps we get a little glimpse of the future in our kids faces. What do you think?

Thanks for visiting!

Reindeer Christmas

I was inspired by this blog to make a similar card. I'm pretty happy with the results, though it isn't quite the same.

Cardstock is Kraft & Enchanted Evening from PTI. Ribbon is fresh snow velvet from PTI. Ink is enchanted evening (PTI) and white daisy (CTMH) with seafoam embossing powder from ranger. Stamps are CTMH (reindeer), Paper Studio (Snowflakes), and PTI. And the bling is from CTMH.

Another one...

Here is another sympathy card I made recently. The idea for the card came from an old cards magazine I was browsing a couple of weeks ago, but of course for the life of me I can't find it now.

Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, patterned paper and aqua mist ribbon from Papertrey Ink
stamps from Close to My Hearts
pearls from Martha Stewart
ribbon slide from my stash

Ever wonder why things seem to happen in 3s? Last month this card was for a friend who miscarried. The card in the previous post was for friends who lost their daughter this last week. And now I've discovered that a friend from college died this last week as well, leaving a family with 4 young daughters behind. I'm so not ready for all this loss. At 36 you don't really think these things will happen to your family or your friends.

Tomorrow I'll be back. With a happy halloweeny scrapbook page I think.
