Mother's Day 2004


Oldies but goodies...

This Layout is one of my favorites...created in 2004.
My husband took these pictures of us on Mother's Day and I have always loved these pictures.

BTW...I used the QuickQutz for the first time with this LO...I thought it was the coolest thing EVER. Little did I know that CRICUT was on it way.

Card Sketch Challenge


Korin Sutherland issued a card sketch challenge on her blog.

This card did NOT turn out as I expected.

It all started with those little yellow brads...I wanted to use them. So I grabbed this striped paper from CTMH's Good Times kit and went from there. I am not convinced this card is "right". But, "not perfect" is OK.

Thanks for looking,

Julia

I ended up making 3 cards!

Thanks for the challenge Nona :)

Don't Blink Challenge


Pauline issued a challenge on her blog to create a LO inspired by the Kenny Chesney song "Don't Blink".

Althought I did this LO last year, it fits this challenge so I thought I'd post it all for you.

Paper: CTMH More to Adore
Stamps: CTMH Rustic

Journaling: There are somethings you just dont GET until you become a mom. The concept of how quickly time will pass is one of them. Seven years of mommy-hood gone in the blink of an eye.

pages 19 and 20: Ears Pierced


I LOVE this sketch from the last sketch swap I was in. I loved it so much that I made several extra copies for myself.

I am currently on a "Brown and Blue" kick and this LO shows it :)

Art Day Frames



My children's school has an ART DAY, and I will be teaching a class on altered Frames. I was asked to create samples for display.

I picked Close To My Heart papers for my samples: Good Times for the boys and Life Delights for the girls.

Thanks for looking.
