All about my girls!

I'm working on my most recent holiday and it's so hard to pick "the best" pictures! But, these are some of my favorites: not because they're well shot or particularly exciting, I just love the memory the photos evoke. The littler one had braids for the first time, and was SO impressed with them. The bigger one whines and cries, but it makes her feel like her holiday has begun!!! And I just love not having to deal with mucky dirty hair for the week! LOL


Paper: Me and My Big Ideas "Sunshine"
Cuts: blue lace from Cricut "Paper Lace" cartridge
Ziggy ITC font for Braids
EK Success "Lattice Chain" edge punch
Sticker: Making Memories Beach wordfetti
Ink: Cricut markers (brown) for paper lace; Memento ink for other edges

Valentine's Day is approaching quickly, and I made a LO for my DD from our recent trip to Mexico. She went swimming with the dolphins, and got a giant pink dolphin stuffie for a present. She loves it, so I made a "love" themed page for her album:

Hearts were cut first, dry embossed, then edges were inked. Each heart is different!

First time I've ever used rick-rack on a page. Love the effect, but took a bunch of glue dots to hold both the ribbon on the page and the die cuts to the ribbon.

Cuts from Cricut Plantin (hearts) and Winter Woodland ("love")
Paper: Me and My Big Ideas "Destination Paradise"
Embossing folders: Sizzix Valentine set #4 and Love Set; and Cuttlebug d'vine swirl
Dye Ink
Rick-rack ribbon
glue dots and ATG adhesive

Anniversary LO

Well, this is a little different! My Sheri Craft's challenge this week is Anniversary. So, I thought I'd do a card. Then I thought, no no no, I MUST work on my scrapbooks. So, you'd think that I might have a LO to do of my own marriage and anniversaries? After all, we've only been married (oh dear Lord) 15 years?!?!?

Turns out... No. I have no anniversary pictures. LOL.

So, next best is family. Here's LO of my DH's great Aunt's 50th wedding anniversary. They were such a fabulous couple! Our great Uncle passed away a year after this, and great Aunt 5 years later. They were fabulous right 'til the end. I can only hope my marriage is so successful and blessed.



Paper: DCWV Glittered Alphabet Stack and DCWV Glittered All Dressed Up Stack
Die cut: Spellbinders Lattice Pendants
Punched Board: Fiskars Threading water
from my stash old gold stickers and a bit of ribbon
