Favorite Photo

This is one of my all time favorite photos of my boys.

To me it's just perfect! I remember taking it. We were out exploring the woods it was a warm and humid day. I remember arguing with them about wearing jeans. They wanted to wear shorts but this all the poison ivy in the woods I made them wear jeans. I LOVE the holes in their jeans, the old scuffed up shoes and the way they are looking at each other. This picture is about 5 yrs old. I can't believe how fast the time goes!

I love this picture SO much I could not wait to scrap it.

I normally take FOREVER to scrap a page. I change everything usually twice and then a few more times! BUT this picture is so special to me that I scrapped it pretty quick. Plus, it's one of my first published layouts. Amazingly I still love the layout and would not change a thing!

Knock Knock

New stamp set coming soon!

This set can be used for many different occasions. Welcome someone to the neighbor, just because, send love or happiness, encouragement and etc!

I am also working on an add on set for this! If anyone has any thing they would like to see with this set please let me know.

I love that the door can be cut open and then you still have the inside of the card to write something.

Typing paper, It lets more light through
Acrylic box from craft store
and craft lights.

We Have...

SUNSHINE today and it's pretty warm!! It's been chilly here lately. LOVE this kind of weather, low 70's not to hot, not to cold.

On this card I did the Rock & Roll Tech.
It is very easy to do.

Get 2 different stamp colors. 1 light and 1 darker.
Ink up stamp with lighter color. Then roll just the outer edges from the stamp in the darker color.
TIP~ Always start with the lighter color so the darker ink will not transfer to the lighter pad.

Stamps ~ Stamped In Ink, Sun stamp from the Hodge Podge set. Background swirl stamp from Odds N Ends set.

Cute Chicks

I love these little chicks! When I started to make this card I was going to use one pocket. I figured I would mess one up stitching, so I cut out two just in case. BUT, I didn't mess up! See, I am not a very good stitcher. I cannot stitch a straight line to save my life. I did not even use the foot pedal on these. I turned & turned & turned the hand wheel the whole time! They turned out so cute so I decided to use both.
I took with photo outside and the one below is scanned.

The weather is beautiful today!! FINALLY! WE have a baseball game tonight and it looks like we won't have to wear winter coats. For the past two weeks it has been so cold and windy that everyone has been bringing blankets, gloves and winter coats. I'm hoping to get some photos of my older son playing tonight.
Enjoy your Friday Night!

My little guy...

just a quick post of my younger son stealing home!
Sorry about the pic of the beautiful fence.

I hear the coach yelling "stay up" meaning you don't have to slide.

Then I hear Adam say," but I love to slide!"

Storage Sheets

I have been asked about what the stamps come stored on.

The stamps are sandwiched between 2 sheets of acetate. It's one whole sheet with the top folded over to make the back. Hope that makes sense.
Each set comes labeled.
These stamps will not yellow!!
