Ok, I know it really doesn't count since it's a document but I did have to glue it to the 12x12 page???  LOL  Emma just finished her Starfish swimming lesson and this is her certificate.  I have pictures but still have to get them printed.  Besides I'm on borrowed time, Emma will wake up from her nap anytime.  LOL.

A little rusty, but my first card in ages!!

Ok, I haven't stamped or made a card in over a year.  So this is the first I have made in forever.  I used SC363 sketch from Splitcoaststampers and the image is from The Stamping Boutique.  I really like this image so I thought it only appropriate that I use her for my first card in ages.  She is so fun to color and work with!
Supplies used:  Papers from So-So-Sweet from The Paper Studio,  Prismacolors, Fairy Cynthia from The Stamping Boutique.

Emma 1st Birthday

I am a little late in posting this, but here is a picture of Emma and her 1st birthday cake.  She had so much fun at her party and she loved all the attention!  She was more interested in looking at everyone watching her with her cake than eating the cake! LOL  Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  My family has been passing the stomach virus around but overall we had a great day!  And best of all, my DH got me a Cricut Expression on Black Friday!!  Now if I only had time to play with it :(

Your the "apple" of my eye

Here is another image from Design 2 Delight for their digital challenge.  This was such a fun image but I'm not sure if the paper I used really goes well with the image.  But this is what I came up with while watching my "almost" 1 year old baby girl.  LOL!  She turns one in 2 days and is a handful!  I'm dreading the time when she starts to walk.  There will be no keeping up with her! LOL

Sew Beary Kind Thank you card

Isn't this the cutest image?  I have been trying to play each week with the Design 2 Delight Digital Challenge.  Each week you make a card using their current digital image and then they give you a new image the next week!  How cool is that?  I think this image is adorable and can't wait to see what next weeks image will be!  Hope everyone is having a great week.

Fall wreath

Hope everyone is having a great Labor Day Weekend!  Brent worked a little on our fence that got blown down two weeks ago in a storm and I played with Emma.  Tomorrow is my last day of vacation and I am NOT ready to go back!  I have spent the last 10 days playing with Emma and spending time with my family and I have loved it!  I even got some stamping done!  This is a digi image from Designed2Delight Digital Stamps.  I am ready for some cooler weather and this image puts you in the mood for some hot cocoa and fall colors.  Hope everyone enjoys Labor Day!

Fun digi stamp

This was a fun digi stamp to color, unfortunately when I saved it I didn't label who the creator was.  If anyone knows please let me know so I can give them credit.  The creator of the image is Tracy Dawn at the Stamping Boutique.  I have tried to go through my images and make sure they are all labeled with the company who they belong to but I can't figure this one out!  It has been driving me crazy!  Anyways I used the SC295 sketch which was a challenge because my image was too big, but I think it turned out ok.

Recipe:  Digi stamp-Tracy Dawn at the Stamping Boutique  unknown artist (please let me know if you recognize), Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol, paper from stash, Stickles, flowers with pearl rhinestone in middle

Meet the Teacher

Today was Meet the Teacher day at the Mother's Day Out program Emma will be starting next week.  We had to get a photo of her first day going and meeting her teacher and new friends.  There are 3 other toddlers in her class and it looks like they will be learning and having so much fun!

You take the Cake!

I made this fun birthday card using a digi stamp.  I have bought a few digi stamps and got some free digi's from the Crafters Digital Art Center, but I have never had a chance to play with one of them yet.  I have to say it was really easy and I like the idea of not having to store blocks of wood or rubber.  The only storage I had to have was on my computer!  I'm totally liking this idea and the ease of getting the images.  No driving across the country to find a stamp store since there is not a local one here.  I used the SCS sketch SC286 to make this card and it was a really fun card to make.

Page w/ picture of first teeth

I actually did this page a month ago but haven't had time to post.  Emma is getting so big and is now crawling.  She is a mover!  Here is a page with the first photo I was able to take of her 2 first teeth.  Sorry but the photo of my page doesn't really do justice to her big smile and 2 bottom front teeth.  She now has 6 teeth and loves to chew on everything.  It is hard to believe she is already 10 months old.  Time has definitely flown.  I used the SBSC 180 sketch challenge for the page.  Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Another fun Christmas page

Here is another fun Christmas page.  I used the sketch SBSC236 from SplitCoastStampers.  This was a really fun sketch and I love how well the photos went along with the sketch.  I'm not sure of where I got the dp, sorry.  Hope everyone has a wonderful 4th of July!  I'm hoping to get some birthday cards made.  My stash is getting empty since I haven't stamped or crafted in awhile.  I have to admit I have had to purchase a few cards lately :(

Fun Christmas layout

I finally got a chance to work on a few scrapbook pages.  Here is one I did with Emma in front of her first Christmas Tree.  I used the SBSC229 sketch.  This is the first sketch I have used that has so many components and it took forever!  It was fun but trying to add so many pieces and get them to match is hard, but I did get rid of a few scraps!!!

Daddy & Emma Layout

Here is a layout I did using the SBSC185 sketch this week.  I took this picture when we went on vacation to N.C. and this sketch was great for this picture. Yes, my dots are crooked, I can't blame it on the camera, LOL. Oh well, I was trying to get it done during DD nap time!
