First day of school

Yesterday was the first day of school for my son (second grade already!!) and Monday is the first day of PreK for my baby girl!!

Last month PTI hosted a StampaFaire. While I didn't get to go they had lots of videos and pictures throughout the day. One of the women there was working on a card very similar to these. This is a pretty close CASE but I never got her name.

baby card

I made this for a friend who recently found out she was having another baby.They are so very excited to welcome this newest addition into their family.  I used a bit of embroidery floss for the clothesline and held it to the card with mini glue dots.  Hanging out, Tiny Tags, and Congrats All Ways are wonderful complimentary sets!

Easter layout

We've been discussing scrapbooking quite a bit over on the forums so I thought I'd show a layout (to finally complete my son's book- 1/2008 to 12/2010) that I did a couple of weeks ago. It was Easter 2010. It was a super important layout for me to complete, because this is the Eater when my son accepted Christ.

I used some recent PTI product that I purchased from all those great PTI gift cards I'd been saving. :) I LOVE Half & Half... it is a DREAM come true!!

Sending you get well wishes...

I am *the worst*... PTI has this great weekly feature called Make It Monday. Every week there is a neat video with a new, or different twist to an "old", technique. I usually can't play along till the weekend. Then, I have to take pictures, upload, and write the post.

Well, I love to make the cards and taking the pictures is no big deal. The rest... not so much fun :) (blog writing isn't bad- I *just* need the pictures!! lol).

So, we had to make a pocket with a decorative edge a few weeks ago and this is what I did. I used the reverse image of the simple circles border die. Different. Unique. But, I liked it.

Laurie-Our Gallery Idol Blog Hog

Welcome!! If you are joining in the Blog Hop today you should be coming from Christy's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning, please go to our PTI PaperDolls Blog where LeeAnne posted ALL the details! :)

One of our PaperDolls made it ALL the way into the TOP 10 of the PaperCrafts Connection Blog Gallery Idol competition!!  We are SO proud of her and want to celebrate her success!

Laurie, is truly a CAS (Clean & Sophisticated) *Queen* Stamper if there ever was one... and I love her style! I was happy to jump on the bandwagon to do this for her. And, I knew immediately which card I would CASE in her honor.

I remember seeing THIS card the first time and thinking... WOW, that is beautiful, genius, and I MUST have that stamp set!! There aren't a lot of stampers who can really make me see a stamp set, I truly thought wasn't my style, in a whole new light.

Here is my CASE of that card using Iconic Images and watercolor pencils:

I really enjoyed doing this for Laurie and hopefully she knows she IS our idol :)
