Monogram Band Aid Tins

These are a few of the Band Aid tins I am preparing for my stamping get together in December.

I am using the Holiday Thyme paper from SU! so they all coordinate and go with my Christmas Theme. The monograms are the new self ashesive mini monograms from Basic Grey. These babies are the BEST! These little guys are REALLY fun to decorate. They are small enough that they aren't a real pain!

I hope the girls like them!

This year's Christmas cards

So, I have never made my own Christmas cards before. Heck, I hardly ever send them out! Well, this year I am ahead of the game! The kids' presents are on layaway, the parts and pieces have been bought to make family gifts, and my cards are DONE!

I love this set, The Snowflake Spot. I think it is really adorable! It looks great embossed with the Irridecent Embossing powder. It is so sparkly! I daubed white craft ink around the edges of the Kraft cardstock to make it look like a frosted window. I used the ticket corner punch and love how it make a nice little home for the brads!

I decided to stick to traditional Christmas colors...don't know why...maybe next year everyone will get pink cards!

I'm going to be in Paper Crafts Magazine!!

So, I submitted a few of my cards to Paper Crafts Magazine for publication consideration. Well, I got an email that one of them was accepted for the April/May issue!! I sent it in yesterday!!!


OK, so yea, this happened almost a year ago, but I just got around to scrapbooking the pictures!

Poor Riley was trying to push between me and the sofa, ended up tripping and smashing his face against our coddee table. He managed to put his bottom teeth right thru his bottom lip. Poor Baby! Luckily, Peale had just left for work, so I was able to call him right away. He can racing home and we wisked Riley to the ER. He was so brave while he got his stitches! Daddy had to stay with him because I felt like I was gunna pass out. Plus, one of us had to stay in the waiting room with the other kids!

Luckily, he only has a tiny scar and I have a cute scrapbook page! LOL
