Home sweet home!

Home sweet home! I just spent the entire day on a zoo field trip with my first grader and my four year old tagging along. It was hot, it involved lots of walking and I'm exhausted! The kids behaved extremely well and did great on the two-hour (each way) car trip. It was a fun day, but I'm so glad to be back home!

Here's a scrapbook page I made with my daughter. I let her do most of the stitch marks with my Uni-ball Signo pen. I think she did a great job!

Mother's Day card with Sweet n' Sassy Stamps

I was out of town for Mother's Day attending a wedding and my awesome mom (and dad!)was wonderful enough to drive to our house all the way from Florida to stay with the kids. I left her gift on the dining room table with this card attached to the box and she had the hardest time waiting until Sunday to open. She did confess that she opened the card early. She just couldn't take the suspense any more! I love this sweet image by Sweet N'Sassy Stamps. Unfortunately, this stamp is no longer available. She's pretty much all digi now. (I'm not!) I believe she may make this available as a digi stamp to those of you who have moved into 21st century stamping.

I be Scrappin'!

I haven't scrapbooked since last June, so I'm so pleased with myself for starting up again! Here's a premade page that I whipped up for some family photos. My parents live in Florida so we have lots of Florida pics. I layered the ocean waves and used dimensional foam to make them pop. I used Jolee's stickers, which I love. They make scrapbooking so easy! I'm also a big fan of that paper. I found it as a stack at Michael's--and it was on sale!

Wish you were here!

I made this card with some scraps that were leftover from something I was scrapbooking. I couldn't resist that pad of paper at Michael's. K&Co. I believe. I used an old Creative Memories paper cutter to make the waves. The palm trees are from Stampin Up. Prehistoric Pals. I bought that set right before it was retired. I knew it would get lots of use. The dolphin and sentiment are from the Ocean Treasure stamp set by Close To My Heart. The Sun is from the Daydream stamp set by CTMH.
