Chicken Pox

My boys are now 6 (Joshua) and 8 (Jacob) and I am just starting to scrapbook. I am feeling a little overwhelmed as to where to start. I am just doing pictures that interest me and not in any order. My pages are pretty simple as you can see above. I haven't even done any journaling on this page yet. I took another picture of the one on the far right so that you could see my son Joshua and just how bad his chicken pox actually were. Jacob got them first from preschool and then Joshua got it. He was 2 1/2 in these pics. He had them EVERYWHERE, yes I mean everywhere. He had them in the back of his throat, on his scalp, he even had one on his eyeball. It was not a fun time, but it makes a cute page.

Cracked Glass

I made this cracked glass card a few months ago with my club and am just getting around to post it now. It looks so much better in person. It is hard to see the cracked glass effect in the picture. I really like this color combination. It is Certainly Celery, Blush Blossom, Apricot Appeal, and Very Vanilla.

I Love Owls

I have to say that I love the Owl Together Now set. I don't own it yet but was able to borrow it at a retreat I went to. My favorite card is the one with the one owl and the balloon. I love the paper, layout and I love the hint of black in it. If you ever get this card from me you are really special, I think I only have 2 left. Hope you think they are just as fun as I do.

My Son's Drawings

I just wanted to share a few of my Son Jacobs (who is eight years old) drawings. He is totally into Bakugans right now. They are these little round things and when they touch metal they open. You can see a picture of one in the first picture. He loves to draw so I printed off one of the pages from the website. I just thought they were great so I had to share.

Just Beachy

I just put together my new set Just Beachy and wanted to play. I found this layout on Splitcoast, can't remember who it is from. I used Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Summer Sun and Whisper White paper. I used the Scallop border edge punch on a scrap piece of paper and then sponged onto the white to make it look like waves. I love this set, my boys were the ones that really wanted me to buy it. The fish are so fun. I am planning on doing a gel card with this set next month for my clubs. Once I do I will post the pictures.

I just started a new club this month and for a little something extra I made them all Bookmarkers with their first initial on them. I found the idea on Dawns Stampin Studio. It is just a 6x6 piece of paper folded. I used the Sweet Always Designer paper. I really liked the way they turned out and everyone was excited to recieve them.

Great Friend Gift set

I made up these cards for one of my Moms friends who helped me out. I used the Great Friend set and the swirl is from the Christmas set Season of Joy. I used the Riding Hood Red and Whisper White paper. My downline made this card in Black and White, I loved it and just used the red as my Moms friends favorite color is red. I made a bundle and tied them with the striped Riding Hood Red Ribbon.
