In August, I posted I would be taking a "Little Break". My hand is great since my surgery, but have been taking care of Hubby as he had neck surgery. Really??? Looking for a super healthy 2013 in our house!
I have been crafting though...which is fabulous therapy by the way!
This is a cute little mini album I made for my long time friend's first grand baby. They are avid Disney fans and couldn't help but make Carrington her first Disneyland Visit album.
I don't know about you, but don't you love to use items you have hoarded in stock?
I did use Close to My Heart's Artiste Cricut Cartridge and Mini Album Chipboard for this album. How cool is it to have your images cut perfect to match the chipboard!
Hope you are enjoying your week. Kinda nice having a holiday in the middle of the week, a little break from payroll, month end and year end!
I used an "Easel Card" pattern and blinged it up. I "lifted" the bird, bling and paper idea from the Close to My Heart Spring/Summer Idea Book. Thanks for looking and hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!
I am so excited to have a blog makeover! Karen Baker is so wonderful to work with and she does such an awesome job! Thank you Karen! And thank you Amy for sharing Karen with us!
I am at Lake Tahoe this weekend....ohhhh so beautiful. I am here to cheer Hubby on while he rides in a mountain bike challenge. I was going to give it a try, but am recovering from severe tendonitis...boo! Can still enjoy the beauty though!
I love this card pattern! (It feels good to use some of my scraps)
This was one of the cards from my latest card workshop.
I used CTMH's "Lucy" paper packet and CTMH Color Ready Seam Binding. I inked up the seam binding with Blush ink and "krinkled" it a bit. Oh and used CTMH's AP Cricut Cartridge for the die cut. Still in love with this cartridge!
Our Women's Ministry is having our annual Garden Party tonight. The theme is gratitude and so I made these journals to record things we are thankful and will be giving them out to the ladies that attend. It is always a nice time to visit and eat yummy desserts.
Hope everyone enjoys their weekend. I, for one, hope to sleep in tomorrow!
Okay, so I have not been a good blogger lately. I have been crafting, but not taking pictures. Hopefully, this weekend I will get out the camera and start shooting! I only have one birthday party to attend and then I am free!
I have been catching up on my scrapbooks and have been adding some digital pages to help with this process. Studio J is a very fast way to get this done! And yes, a couple of these layouts are pictures from 2008 and 2009....geez!!!
Our Workshop on the Go Club chose the "Hero" kit from Close to My Heart. I tried to make samples of layouts using this kit even if you do not have boys. I made a layout of 4th of July with my step-grandaughter Lexi and one of old pictures of my dad. I love how they turned out!
These are the layouts we made at our "Pemberly" Workshops on the Go. Most of the shapes are cut out using the Cricut and CTMH's Art of Philosophy cartridge. Oh how I love this cartridge! The first layout is my son and his fiance. The second is my step-son's family.
The company I work for gave us a day off to thank us for all our hard work! So....nice! I was able to get some journaling done and pictures taken. And also made my first crock pot dinner! Cilantro Lime Chicken from Pinterest! Gotta love it!
Catching up on my Project Life album. So much fun to do! I am good at taking pictures, just need to get them put in the page protectors! I am not putting too much pressure on myself and just doing month by month, not day by day or week by week. Maybe next year I will tackle the week by week...
I love taking pictures of random things I see, like this Scrapbook wine I saw at the store...so darn cute!
Birthday brunch with my son, he is not liking his picture taken at this point in his life, so I needed to catch one while he was texting. Hey, whatever works!
Some basketball pictures. I love using embellies and some "vintage" stamp sets I have collected.
Flashback Friday time again!!! The challenge is our first die cut project posted on our blog. My project was originally posted on January 2010. I used my Cricut to cut out the scalloped squares and hearts. Join the fun!
