History


One of the neat tips I picked up was to take pictures of your kids in front of the TV or holding the newspaper when historical events happen. I made sure to do this during the last election. The kids were excited about he whole process and C actually took the pictures at the polling place. The focal picture is of them watching the inauguration live. LOVE that shot :)

I used a retired kit from CTMH.

With All My Heart

This is the most recent sketch from 2Sketches 4 U.Here is what I ended up with. When looking through my file of inspiration cards, I noticed lots and lots of cards with "paper quilts". That is definitely where I was headed when I started this card.



I once again used CTMH's Key To My Heart paper. I am please with the way this one came out. I think I will give it to one of the kid's teachers with a "Thank you with ALL my heart" message inside.

Celebrate Good Times


As soon as I saw this card on Stamps, Paper, Scissors Blog, it reminded me of the CTMH Key To My Heart Paper. So, when I started this card, I knew where I wanted to start. Of course, mine never end up looking EXACTLY like my inspiration, but that is OK

I made this card for little girl's birthday.

Pattern Paper: CTMH Key To My Heart
Cardstock: Tulip, Colonial White
Stamp: CTMH B1332 Good Times
