My Wedding Album

Well I finally finished my wedding pictures.  We have been married for 14 years, never really had an album.  Decided there are so many great mini out there, I should make one for my  pictures.  I used Maraposa paper from DCWV.   I had both the mat stack and the 12 x12 papers.  Found some stickers from Michaels.   Used my cricut to cut out some images from Wedding Cartridges.  The colored image is from Greeting Farm.  Hope you enjoy, it was lots of fun.  Can't wait to show the girls at work.

Alex 1st year in Basketball

As a homeschooling family, we look for ways in which our children can still be around their peers.  Well this year we found a homeschool basketball team that played other homeschoolers and private schools.  My middle son Alex figured that he should try his hand at basketball given his 6' 3" height.  (His is in 8th grade)  He started out a little slow and had lots to learn but he grew so much and I am very poud of him.  I made a mini for his coach, but forgot to photograph it.  So this is the mini I made for myself.   
I am hoping to finish my wedding album  mini, OK about 14 years late, but hey better late than never, Right.  Hopefully see ya in a couple days.  Thanks for watching.

Logan Crafty Mama Gift

Carolanne of "Logan Crafty Mama" gave me this frame as a thank you gift.  It was very nice of her and by all means was not necessary.  I found  the perfect photo my husband took of me playing dress up.  I am working on an album for all those photos but this photo fit for the frame.

Recent Cards, Really Happy

Well, finally have a couple days off.  I made some cards last week and was really happy with how things are turning out.  Really trying to step things up a notch.  Hoping all my hours of you tube are paying off.  I have to thank Arlene, at mybutterflykisses.  She has helped me (not knowing so of course), find so many new people on you tube to watch and learn from.  Also she got me into copics, (my husband does not thank her.)  I look forward to learning more and moving forward in my papercrafting.  Thanks for following me, it is slow at times but I hope worth keeping in touch.   The Hello cards were for some new friends on the scraphappiness.ning  site.   The thinking of you card is for a friend of the family recently diagnosed cancer.  Hope it brighten her day even just a little.

Sorry MIA:(

Well, I have been really ill from an abcess tooth, and haven't posted much.  I have a couple projects started and can't  till I complete.  I did make mini album for my son's basketball coach and totally forgot to take pictures.  I am making myself a mini with just my son's photos.  This is one of my started projects.  I also bought some Mariposa paper that I love and decided to make a mini with my wedding pictures.  It is going to be so pretty.  So speaking of Wedding.  My husband is trying to get started in the Photography Biz.  I did not have a formal wedding, so we rented a wedding gown and had a photo shoot.  I got to play dress up for the day and he got lots of photos.  I made a simple card as a thank you (also some advertizing) to the shop we rented the dress.  Used the two favorite photos of my husband.   Hope you enjoy.  Should be able to finish some projets later in week.   Thanks for staying with me.
