Where has the summer gone?
Madison at the Splash Pad
Wow. It has been awhile since I have posted on here! Just not enough time for my blog. My husband and I had our oldest Granddaughter, Alexandria at our house for seven weeks and our youngest, Madison was here the first week and returned for the last three weeks while her babysitter was on vacation. We had a very busy summer with our Grands and loved every minute of it! But, the fun has come to an end. Ashley flew to Alabama for the weekend and they all flew home yesterday. Now our house is quiet and still. No small feet running through the house, no baby saying "I need milky", and the phone is not ringing off the hook with Alex's friends calling wanting her to play and come over and swim. Boy, times like this makes me miss when my two girls were babies. They grew up way too fast. We loved every minute of them being with us.....well maybe not the attitude at times. LOL. My camera was always in hand and dust never had time to settle on it. I took so many pictures, but I felt like I needed to. My Grands Momma, my oldest daughter Ashley, rarely takes pictures. I bought her a nice digital camera and a camcorder, but they seldom get used. She loves to look at the pics I take tho. My youngest daughter does much better, but she is not the picture addict I am. Oh well....I have to get them when I can. I now have many to choose from for the albums and scrapbook pages I have planned. My scraproom was a wreck during the time they were here, but we still got in there and played. I also discovered one of my neighbor's loves to scrapbook. So we have plans of going to my monthly Stampin Up class together and attending local crops in our area. Her husband just surprised her with the Cricut Expression and she is ready to get it out of the box. Here are several pictures of the fun we had this summer. Not enough room on here to post them all.
For my project I chose to make a pretty card. Not sure about you, but I am always needing cards to send out. This card is easy and quick to replicate and you can simply stamp any verse in the inside when the occasion arises. I started off with one of our A2 ca…
Hi there! Thank you for hopping by to my blog. Each month we have a small group of Close To My Heart consultants that love to share their creations through their blogs. This month we are using our Silver & Gold collection. Today you should have arrived from Haley Dyer's blog and her amazing project she has created for you.
My project this month is a 12" x 12" layout. Our current Holiday Expressions Idea Book has two wonderful Christmas and winter paper collections along with several coordinating stamps and thin cuts dies designed for both card making and scrapbook layouts. For my page this month I wanted lot's of snow on my page. Thankfully we don't get a lot of snow here in Texas, but it sure is a beautiful gift from God during the winter. I started with my snowbanks using our Glacier card stock and the set of Aspen Court templates from Kiwi Lane. From there I added a thick layer of our Liquid Glass along the snow slope edge and covered it with Diamond Du…
