As my daughter was taking her nap today we got a little crafty at our house as AJ would say! As I created this layout my son stamped and cut out the animals and created his own artwork.(He did the last page) He loves animals and has the creative bug like mommy. Not bad for being only 5 yrs old. I plan to place both in his photo album next to each other as a memory of his first page completed, I have to first find a photo to place in the middle of it. I use many of his projects as B & T paper and layer the photo on top. There are so many pages he has made that I have saved that I had to find something creative to do with them and he enjoys seeing his artwork in his book!

Paper and animal stamps from CTMH
We welcomed a new little girl to the family. My cousin adopted this sweet little girl named Kim, they arrived home with her a month ago and she is a doll. We held a party for her recently so everyone could meet her. For the occasion I made this page layout as a "guest book" for everyone to sign. In the photo she is holding a toy phone so the message reads " A Message For Kim". It was fun to finally meet her!

This is a card I made for my grandpa's sister who just turned 100 years old! (this is a card one doesn't get the chance to make too often) Their parents lived a long life with their mother reaching 93 and father 105 and they were lucky to celebrate 75 years of marriage together. Can you imagine all the different things they experienced in their lives...WOW! Luckily she is doing very well at this age and with in the past year just moved into an assisted living center, she had been living at home until then. Many of the siblings are still living and they range in age from the youngest at 80 to the oldest Evelyn who had her 100th Birthday!!!

Here is a card I found a while ago and finally got around to making one! I decided to use the CTMH Taffy card stock as it reminds me of a Orange Cream Ice Cream Bar. You could make these in any color which makes them so much fun. For the inside I used a Birthday sentiment. The riboon tie holds the card shut. You could attach a gift card to the inside...just an idea. For a childs birthday it would be cute to make a bunch in different colors and stick them in a small flower pot with a "Thank You" sentiment and have the kids bring them home. So many fun ideas for this card.

Here is a card I did recently. I used the flower as a flap closure. The sentiment in the background is a small Acrylic stamp set from Papertrey Ink. When I say small they fit on my Close to my Heart 1x1 acrylic block, otherwise the rest of the materials are from Close to my Heart. I have many of these cards on hand, they were so easy and fun to make.
I have been busy working on a "Sport's" album for a 2009 graduate.I have enjoyed spending my time putting all her memories together so that she can share them with all her friends and family at her 2009 Graduation Party.
I have been stamping on the layouts, using a cricut machine(LOVE this machine), punches and used a few sticker/foam empelishments that she wanted incorporated in her album. Here is a couple examples and some of the pages are in her school colors. I used the CTMH Topiary and Moonstruck cardstock and some colonial white.
