It is hard to believe it has been two weeks since we have been home from Disney. We had such a wonderful time. Though Jeff did compare me to Hitler with the pace I kept them on, one week is just not enough time, though we were exhausted and ready to come home, though I would be more then willing to leave tomorrow to go back., but I must come back to reality. We would not of been able to of gone if it was not for my Mother-in-law, which I can not thank enough for her gift. You may not be able to tell but in the Power Ranger picture there are two Red Power Rangers one is Alec. Thanks to dad who did his research before we went had read on a blog where a kid dressed in his Power Ranger costume and was asked to go in the car with them. So since, Alec already had owned a costume for Halloween we brought it along and he two was asked, the highlight of the day.

Now and Forever

For more than a month I have been working on a wedding album here are couple of pages from that album. The album is done the wedding was last weekend, this album was a challenge for me since I did not know the bride or groom and all I knew was the colors where brown and white. For those of you who are familiar with the products out there, finding patterned paper in brown and white (not off-white) is not easy. I did find a few in a Christmas Slab I had which thankfully did not look like Christmas paper to use and I had to get creative. These layouts I used CTMH Now and Forever stamp set. The first page I stamped the wedding cake in Chocolate ink on white cardstock. The frame and wording was cut from my Cricut using my Sure Cuts A lot software, the frame cut file came from Penny Duncan . The bottom scalloped boarder came from a Martha Stewart boarder punch. The other layout I used the rings from the stamp set and embossed them with white embossing powder on Chocolate cardstock. I will post more pictures later from this album.

Holiday Warmth

CTMH October's Stamp of the Month Holiday Warmth was used with paper from the Jingle pack. To color in the tree I used the waterbrush with ink from the Olive stamp pad. The ornaments were done with the Tulip marker then Liquid Glass was applied with Prisima Glitter for a little added touch. The scalloped oval was cut from a Spellbinders nestibilitie and the white boarder was from a Fiskers punch.


This was a card my club made this month, to create the card I used CTMH Spellbound stamp set. First with a brayer I applied Creme Brulee ink all over a piece of white cardstock. Next I placed a cut out of a moon shape with temporary adhesive along with a scrap piece of paper along the bottom third of the card so I would not accidentally ink over this part. The next step is to use the brayer and apply Lilac Mist over the parts not covered. Now remove your paper pieces and sponge on more Lilac Mist where the Creme Brulee and Lilac Mist meet so you will not have a hard line between the two colors. I then sponges on black around the edges, bottom and throughout to look like clouds. Lastly I stamped the images in Black.
