Ryan Summer Camp 2010

We are so proud of Ryan.  He made Eagle Scout in'm frantically trying to finish his Scouting Scrapbook before his court of honor!!!!  Here is one page that I had a blast making.  Most of the die cuts are made with my Cricut and the solutions Camping cartridge.  The dutch oven sticker is from a Karen foster scouting sticker sheet.  If anyone has any scouting scrapbook page ideas they would like to share...I'd love to see them!  Also, trying to come up with something for centerpieces for the court of honor ceremony.  We are going with a patriotic theme....would love ideas!

Happy Birthday!

Sorry....not the best picture but I was making this for a birthday party the next day and the picture was taken at about 1:00 in the morning.  Does anyone else do that?  Used my cricut on this one and I know the background shape is from Storybook and the tiara is either from Storybook or Once Upon a Princess...sorry I was looking at them both and I should have written it down.  The paper is DCWV and some SU cardstock with some BG for the pink top layer.  The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink.  Hope you are having an awesome weekend!

Ryan Crossing Over

I know....I know....nothing for weeks and then 2 in one day!  This LO is of Ryan crossing over from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts.  He just made Eagle last month and I want to make a scrapbook for him of his adventures in scouting and my goal is to have it done before his Eagle Court of Honor which is tentatively scheduled for early March....  Here is my first page......I'm so far behind in my scrapbooking!!!!  This is from 2008 and I haven't even started scrapping that year yet.  I'm way behind that.  I promised myself that I was going to get all my 35mm photos that I already have printed scrapped before I would start the digital ones and I'm not making alot of progress there.  It might help if I didn't take the attitude that I NEED to scrap everything or every event that I have photos of.....he he he.  We will be moving in the spring and I'm in major purge mode so I really need to get those boxes of photos into albums!!!

Welcome Baby!

I had so much fun getting back in my craft room!!!  I needed a baby card and I really wanted to make one using this card as my motivation.  I love Laurie's style!  This sweet image is from Elizabeth O Dulemba.  She is a wonderful illustrator who has tons of sweet images over on her site.  I used my copics to color...sorry I didn't take a picture of the colors I used before I put them away.  I believe the pinks are RV21 and RV23 with a brighter one thrown in.  I used papers from October Afternoon's Ducks in a Row backed with some SU cardstock and then an off brand lighter weight cardstock for the top two images as the SU cardstock is a little thick for my border punch.  This border punch is a MS punch and I think it is called is a punch around the page set.  I added some ribbon from my stash with a cute yellow button adorned with a silver charm (Walmart...I think).  Hope you enjoy and have an awesome Monday!

I apologize for not being here lately.  My in-laws were here to visit and then my Dad went in the hospital for a short visit.  My hubby has been in and out of town a lot lately but I was able to squeeze in a trip to visit my folks over Thanksgiving and then I came home and had to get busy getting the school semester finished with the boys and get ready for Christmas!  Makes me tired again just typing it...ha! ha!   I so appreciate your prayers for my Dad. He has been feeling somewhat better over the last few weeks!  I do have some awesome crafty news to share, too!
