It isn't to often that Emily will let me get her all dress up AND pose for the camera. She had just gotten her hair cut and even let me curl it. She is always such a cutie, but, today she is a princess!
As if paper crafting isn't enough- I have discovered the fabulous pasttime of knitting! My husband is so excited(haha). He simply asks when I'm going to finish our childrens scrapbook and I say finish? If I have my camera in hand and all the wonderful Close To My Heart goodies how can I ever really finish? He just doesn't seem to understand(sigh). But, I think once he is snuggled under a nice,warm knitted blanket he won't mind. That will be sometime in the distant future since it is 85 degrees out now! Gives me time to practice!
I just love the new Bella paper pack! I did up this cute little card for a Close To My Heart unit swap and it is perfect for this time of the year! I adapted a card sketch from the Originals Card Confidance Program(9032) This book is great if you have a mental block when it comes to creating a card. I used the level 2 paper pack Bella(X7114B) The sweet baby in the pot is stamped using Flower Child(D1248)and colored with watercolor pencils(3505) and then I used a blending pen(3174)to softed the colors. I also used the stamp set Treasures of the heart(C1271) on the front and inside. The flower is from the Just Blooms Big Pinks(Z1033) and a pewter bitty brad(Z199)to attach it.
I'm a mom to two wonderful girls, Hannah and Emily and wife to Les. We have an energetic Goldendooodle named Sophie. There seems to never be a dull moment in our house. God has given me many blessings!I enjoy spending my spare time taking photos which leads to scrapbooking! I have a love for pretty paper, cute stickers and creative ways to preserve memories!
