Welcome, Baby!

Hello, everyone! I finally stamped! It's been awhile...:( of my dear friends, Michelle, is about ready to burst with her newest addition. We had a baby shower for her at work and I was in charge of making the card. Here is what I came up with.

I used one of my favorite Anna Wight sets, Bundle of Joy. I paired it with Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, and Pure Poppy cardstocks. I just love the PTI ribbon and thought the stitching on the ribbon added a nice masculine touch to the card.

Of course I had to add some glitter and the image was colored with Prismacolor pencils.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of the week!

Sweet Pea

I made this little cutie for Kristina's color inspiration, but as usual, I missed the deadline! I need to pay closer attention to that! LOL!

The colors to use were Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Old Olive, and white. This is one of my all time favorite color pretty and feminine.

I used my Papertrey Green Thumb set for a simple little image and added some ribbon and a Basic Grey button. Some polka dot paper and Old Olive cardstock finished it up. Nice and simple...the way I have been feeling lately!

Holy Moly! I love Christmas, but I am always so glad when all the stress is finally over! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and healthy new year.

Here is a little layout that I threw together the other night. I totally scraplifted this layout as the inspiration. Kelly's entire gallery is so gorgeous!

This is a picture of Riley this summer at the pool. I have used this picture in another layout, but I love it so much I wanted to use it again!

I used SU! basic black cardstock and Varsity (I think!) papers. I love easy-peasy pages like this that don't have tons of foo-foo (although I love those, too!)

Come fly with me

Slayton is going to grow up to be my engineer. He just lives for figuring things out and making them better. He loves anything that 'works'. His uncle gave him just a simple styrofoam plane and it kept him busy for so long. First, he was content to just fly it...but soon he was experimenting. He would turn the wings around, or make the tail a different angle, just to see what would happen. I hope Slayton keeps his inquisitive nature. I think it will take him far.

This kit is called 'No Girls Allowed'.

One of our family traditions is to use the hot coals from our little charcoal grill to make smores. The kids look forward to it every time we cook out. It's going to be a long winter with no smores! It's funny, I've noticed everyone in the family toasts their marshmallows differently...I like them just barely toasted, Slayton likes it pretty brown, and Daddy makes his as black as midnight! Kira likes her smores unassembled! LOL!

This is a cute little kit from MandaBean called Miss Patterson. I bought it over at Sweet Shoppe.

I believe...

I just love this page. That is really it. I just love it! :) I love how Ali Edwards writes on her photos and I wanted to try that style. I thought this picture was perfect since Kira was off center and I had all that great dark 'empty' space to write in. I think it worked out perfectly.

This is a kit from Jessica Sprague called Flower Girl. It is just adorable...the colors are so sweet. The font is my ever favorite from Ali Edwards.

9? Is it really possible?!

My baby is going to be 9 years old soon. I just can not believe it! He is like this little adult living with us! He even gets some of the 'grown-up' jokes! Ack!

I took this picture while we were playing at the park a few weeks ago. When I went back and looked at the photos, I was just in awe of how grown up he is. In so many ways I am not ready for this, but in many...I certainly am!

This digital kit is from Sweet Shoppe and is called Nana's Cupboard.

Riley at the pool

This is just a quick little page about how much Riley loves the pool and swimming. I want to be sure to document all the things the kids love to do. I wish I had my childhood memories written down now that I am older and I want to be sure to do that for my kids. I hope they appreciate it when they are older.

This digi kit is called Celebrate Life, but I am not sure where I bought it from...

Sweet as Honey!

I hadn't been 'shopping' around for freebie digital kits in forever, so I went poking around and found this adorable kit at 2Peas. The elements and colors were perfect for how I wanted to scrap this picture of Kira.

Kira really is sweet as hone, but at the same time she can be SSSOOOOO bad! Oy. I certainly hope she gets it all out of her system before she is a teenager!

Once again, the font is Ali's. I sure do love it! :)

Halloween, 2008

We had such a blast on Halloween this year! The kids were all old enough to really enjoy it! I did up this page pretty quickly. I love this Halloween Kit from Ping Designs. I just tried to Google them so I could add a link, but I think they may have closed...that stinks! They had great kits. Anyhoo...

So, my hubby restores classic arcade machines for a living, so it was just natural for our kids to dress up as Super Mario Bros. for Halloween! If you look super close in the picture, you can see that my husband has some games on our front porch. Every year, he wheels a few outside, puts them on free-play mode, and lets the Trick-or-Treaters play games. I'm not sure who enjoys it more, the kids or Peale!

The font is Ali Edwards, again, and is still available on her blog.

Have a fantastic night!
