Gracie's Five!

Here's my little sweetie last night before her (family) birthday party. :) We haven't gotten into friend parties yet, but I am sure it won't be too long! I got that cute top at Gymboree online during their Big Red Balloon sale and she had the skirt already. Don't you just want to kiss her little cheeks, or is that just me?!? :)

Razzle Dazzle Happy Birthday

I had a bunch of scraps lying on my desk the other day and threw this little card together. All supplies SU! The patterned paper is unfortunately retired. I used the big flower image in the new Razzle Dazzle set and colored it with my InColor Markers (as well as Old Olive). I like these new colors better than I thought I would! :)

Gymnastics Fun

Gracie has been taking gymnastics once a week for a couple of months. She LOVES it and it has really helped to improve her coordination. She is jumping backwards on a long trampoline in this picture. :) Of course, I had to take a shot of Ava as well since I had my camera there and everything. They have a great setup there. The little kids can play with a bunch of toys that they have there while the big siblings do the gymnastics. Fun stuff. :)

Shoebox Swap Card

I have a shoebox swap tomorrow night that my Stampin' Up! upline's upline is hosting and this is the card I created. I like the way it turned out. Circle Circus is a cute new stamp set in the catalog and I LOVE the new InColors! :) I used Dusty Durango, Bermuda Bay, Kraft, Old Olive, and Vanilla cardstock and Crushed Curry/Durango/Suede/Bermuda ink. The scallop circle punch and the scallop edge punch came in handy to give my card that little extra something. I used dimensionals for the "flower" and also to mount the main panel onto the vanilla card base. Linen thread "tied" it all together! Ha! (sorry for the extremely bad pun). Thank so much for looking! :)

Fancy Gracie

I have had this picture printed out for about six months and couldn't get anything to work. I sat down for about an hour on Friday afternoon and it magically came together. I had previously cut out Fancy Nancy from the dust jacket from one of Gracie's books (VERY time consuming, but very worth it!) the day that I had printed the picture out, but that's all I had. I am pleased as punch with the way it turned out! :) Thanks for looking (and thanks for any's been forever since I got a comment!)

Fourth Cuties!

Some cute pictures from yesterday...of course we couldn't get a good picture of both of them together. One or the other of them was either looking away from the camera or was making a goofy look. I got a bunch of ADORABLE Gymboree clothes on a great sale a couple of weeks ago and had to try a little photo shoot. :)

Get Well Wishes

A cute little card (in my opinion) that I made for my MIL, who just had hip replacement surgery. The patterned paper is I believe Bo Bunny and My Mind's Eye and the butterfly is the coveted Monarch Butterfly by Quickutz that my wonderful Aunt Terry just brought up to me from Florida! :) The blue piece behind the plaid patterned paper is Bazzill, as is the top layer of the butterfly. The stamp is the new little sentiment set by Stampin' Up! called Teeny Tiny Wishes. I LOVE this card! :) Feels good to have my stampin' mojo back!

New Post Today...

I actually got to create a scrapbook page last night! We got a new computer, though, and I don't know how to get my pictures onto the new computer. I have to have Sean work on that so I can get a picture up today. I did a page AND a card, so I have two days' worth of posting! WooHoo! :)
