Here is another thank you card.  It's very basic, but Munchkin created the piece that has the random stamping on it.  I thought it was appropriate as the thank you card is actually coming form Munchkin.

Stamp Set: Hot Digity, A Little Everything
Inks: Topiary, Goldrush, Moonstruck, Crystal Blue
Embellishments:  Outdoor Denim Bitty Brads

Rainy day

Something not scrapping related......

It was a rainy day here yesterday so we decided to make some cookies.

They must have tasted really good because there are none left.  :)

Friday Fun

Not scrapbooking related at all, but fun for a Friday.

Take the Quiz

Thanks Nona for bringing this to the top of your blog.

Father's Day Card

This is the card that hubby will be getting form the princess for Father's Day.  She even "helped" make it.  Ok - she sat with me and did her best NOT to spit up on it.

You can find the tutorial for the shirt here.

I used scraps from the Moon Doggie paper, crocheted ribbon, and desert sand ink.  The shirt is raised on pop dots.

Thursday, June 17, 2010


I created this from the Veranda paper.  It is one of the cards shown in the WOTG.  I love it because I used some of the leftover papers from layouts I had created for this card.  The sentiments is raised using pop dots.  The edge of both paper flowers were inked using tulip ink.

All products are from Close to My Heart.

I just have to say how much I LOVE our albums from Close to My Heart. I haven't really realized it until now.

Here's the story .....

I have gremlins in the house. Yep gremlins. First they took some of my completed pages. Then they took my heat gun. And now they have taken my distressing kit - the WHOLE thing!!! But they did return the completed pages.

I had redone some of the pages and put them in an album that isn't ours - you know the ones that you adhere everything to a page that is "bound" to the book and then you add the page protector over top, so you really can't change the sequence of them. (I was trying to use the other album and pages up.)

The problem now is because I'm a chronological scrapper things HAVE to be in the right order or my world is turned upside down. So now I have to try to gently remove the completed pages of munchkin opening birthday presents and move them so that the pictures of the cake can go in first. I can't leave it either because it was munchkins first birthday.

Hopefully I can finish that this weekend and leave those "yucky" albums for good for the world of Close to My Heart albums!!!!!!!!!

Now to find where the gremlins are hiding the rest of my stuff.........

Magic Moments Layouts 49-60 of 120

I have to admit that when I first saw the magic moments paper I didn't like it.  And when I got the Kit that was available for National Scrapbooking Month - I still wasn't thrilled.  (I don't remember why or how I got it.)  But now that I've put the pages together I LOVE it!!!!!

These pages are going to be the monthly dividers for our family album this year.  Now I just have to add the pictures and a couple more embellishments.

All the pages are pre-printed with layouts from the Reflections idea book.

Felicity Accordian Album (Layout challenge 47 & 48 of 120)

This accordian album was CASED from Vicki Wizniuk.  I made mine using left over paper from the Felicity paper pack that was available this past January.  It is one of the prizes for this weeks Heart to Heart Challenge.

Layout 43 - 46 of 120


Layout #1 from the Miracle Kit that was available for National Scrapbooking Month in May.


Layout #2 from the Mircale Kit.


Cherry-O Workshop on the Go Layout.


Then and Now from Cherish using the papers from Cherry-O WOTG.  This is also Helen's Challengs week 3.

I LOVE both of these kits.  I'm hoping that CTMH adds the Miracle papers to their regular line of products.  This was also the first time I had used any of the "irresistibles".  They are FANTASTIC - I can't wait to use some more.
