Here I Go Again...

So have you ever stopped and asked yourself during your busy day to day activities to ponder what is really working about your life and what isn't? Well, I have been feeling so off-kilter lately and I know EXACTLY the reason... lack of creativity! Has it really been two years since I posted here?

To rectify this ailment, I signed up and am in the process of taking Stacy Julian's "Twelve" scrapbooking class. And while I have not been quite as active as I intended, it has sparked my creative awareness and I am ready to re-ignite my passion for all things paper-crafty!

I also re-activated as a Close To My Heart consultant and will be offering classes and workshops in the very near future (stay tuned). I just received some AWESOME new product and cannot wait to start playing!

In the meantime, my first layout in quite some time is this one. Can I just say how excited I am that I even did one page?

Long time no post!

Cannot believe how long it's been since I've posted on here. My dad fell and broke his neck last July and life just kinda got away ever since. He is fine now, although wheelchair bound for the most part. At 86, he is doing VERY well!

Going to try to post more often. Made a couple cards recently. LOVING my new MS punch!

This card uses one of my favorite new CTMH stamp sets - Piece of Cake!

And of course, how could you ever grow tired of CTMH You're A Hoot stamps?

A birthday card for a friend (my husband's best beer buddy)!

The stickles on the froth look much better IRL...

Father's Day Cards

Made two cards, both using paper from DCWV Stack 6. This first one is for my dad, with CTMH stamp set Bird Basics:

And this one is for my hubby from me and my two kids (hence the 3 owls), using same paper and CTMH You're A Hoot. The inside sentiment is the one from the card above. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE both of these little birdy sets!

You're A Hoot

This layout was for a one page 12x12 swap using new items from the CTMH Summer Idea Book. I used the new Animal Cookies papers and the adorable You're A Hoot stamp set. FUN! I had the perfect pictures to go with the papers (don't we always???)!

The colors are so much more vibrant IRL... Oh well.

And oh yeah, these photos were taken 10 years ago! DS was 2.5. He's now 12.5. YIKES!

Year of Memories Swaps

I participated in 2 swaps for a Year of Memories scrapbook. I chose December for the 6x6 size and February for the 9x9. This was a fun swap and well worth the effort to get back a whole year of double layouts in two sizes!

6x6 December:

9x9 February::

Now to add some pictures! Would make a great gift, no?
