I am very pleased with how this page of Rebel turned out. I have a ton of paper but when I stopped in at Scrapbook Art on my way to donate blood last week. (Lucky for me my favorite scrapbook store is in the shopping center next to the blood bank a perfect place to kill time if you arrive 15 minutes early as I did) Anyways I was thrilled when I found this paper last week...the orange the blue the snowflakes...could it be more perfect?
Now it is in a frame in our kitchen.

This is the companion picture of the photo of Paige in the plaid dress below. I love the look that Megan is giving she just looks like she's full of it...being her silly little self and making us all smile. I loved that dress on her as well. She had a swimsuit with the same pattern. It's just pure sunshine and joy!

This was a real quick page. I knew I wanted to use the "C U T E" sticker letters and then I found the red glittered snowflake paper and I cut around 5 of the snowflakes so I could make it look like she was juggling them. Because you know that at 17 months old she was a master juggler! I just like the red and turquoise together plus I have always called Megan "my little cutie".

Mike and the three trout that he caught the day before Thanksgiving. I love how his smile grows bigger in each photo.

I remember taking this picture of Paige back in July of 2005. We were at a car show and we had sat down in the shade to take a rest. She just looked so lovely in her plaid summer dress. I used different punches to make the strips of light pink paper then I added some rub ons for pattern.

This page came together quick after I dug out this circle paper. I like the frosty feel and that the paper has the same periwinkle as her shirt.

Over the weekend Paige made a little mini album featuring photos of Rebel and that inspired me to make a quick album for Rowdy.

I made this for my dear friend Lisa today. The paper is from Basic Gray. I used the same paper on my clock. I just love the colors and patterns of this paper. It feels old and funky yet fresh!
I found these cute little 5 x 12 clipboards at Archiver's for all of two bucks. After I "modge podged" three different papers on I cut out 3 bees and a butterfly and glued them on too. Then I added just a bit of "sparkles". I also made a little two sided chipboard tag that reads "Do what you love" and "Love what you do". Oh and I added lots of fun ribbon because that's what I do!

I made my first covered paint can last week.

Our neighbors Cristee and Brent are having a little boy in October (their first baby) and the ladies in the neighborhood had a shower for them yesterday. Earlier this summer after we found out they were having a boy and that the room would be in a blue and zebra print theme me and the girls started finding onesies on the sale racks. Plus I did a few iron on transfers to two long sleeved white ones. One was a pumpkin that says "Punkin" on it and the other was a bottle of milk that says "House White". I stuffed them all in this tin and it became a "tin of onesies". Cristee said it was the funnest gift to open plus it was the only handmade gift. When they were over at our house last month for dinner she was going on and on about all of the handmade things in Paige and Megan's rooms. After that I decided I better make her something handmade and not just give her a stack of onesies. My sister makes these cute paint cans all the time so that inspired me to give it a try. The patterns were fun and I tried not to go over the top with it. It would be fun to do a girls tin with lots of glitter and sparkles. But I think this turned out fun and a little wild with the favorite paper is the paisely print, I like how it is soft but not too girly I think it worked well with the zebra print.

This is the little clipboard that I made for Cristee and Brent's baby's room. His name is going to be Brayden (Matthew or Michael they have not ironed that out yet) and their last name starts with a W. So the baby will have the same initials as his daddy B.M.W. (Yes they drive one too). Did you notice I covered a ball point pen in zebra paper then I modge poged it and tied a ribbon to it. I thought it would be nice to have a little clipbaord for baby sitter instructions, shopping list, keeping trak of those wet & dirty diapers those first few weeks when everything is a blur or it would also be a cute place to clip snapshots of the baby.
I even covered the back of the clipboard with paper too, brown is boring!

This is the card I made for Megan's best friend Cameron. When I picked Megan up from Cameron's sleepover yesterday Cameron made my day. I asked Cameron if she liked the peace sign scarf and best friends doll that Megan gave her. Her reply was, "Yeah I like them but the card was really cool!"

the transparency is "office Lingo Collection" by

I made this picture frame for Keallan and Danielle as part of their wedding gift. I thought just giving them gift cards was a little impersonal. Their wedding colors are brown and pink so I hope they enjoy it. Make sure to click on the photo for a close up.

I whipped this card together yesterday for our neighbor's new baby girl. She was born 2 weeks ago and her name is Love Marie. I used my new stamps from Stampin' Up, the "So Very" set and on the inside I stamped So Very Blessed. I think it turned out cute. Paige liked the way I put glitter around the flower with the love label in the center. I wanted it to stand out since that is her we are all about glitter!
