Superman Card

One of the cartridges I just got is Superman.  Naturally I had to play with it, so I made a card.

I used all scrap paper and bling to make this.  They were from Momenta's PA-2330 Super Pad and the Trucks and Bubbles sticker sheet ST-2526.

This card turned out 'super' cute and I can't wait to give it to one of the guys in my family.  I know they'll really appreciate it.

Guest Designer on Creative Cutter Room (CCR)

Hi everyone.

Today I am one of the guest designers for the Creative Cutter Room (CCR).  We all made April projects with clouds, rain or puddles.

The outside of my card is a dark, gloomy cloud.

The tag mentions the future and here is what it holds:

The inside is bright, sunny and has a rainbow.  It is very cheery and uplifting.  The idea for the floss rainbow came from my kids' book "What Makes A Rainbow?" which has a ribbon rainbow across the pages.

All the papers are from Momenta.  Those stacks are so versatile.  I used Super Pad PA-2330 and the Great Outdoors pad PA-0925.  The diecuts are all from the Create a Critter cartridge. 

I had a great time designing for CCR.  Please stop over there to see all the other great projects that were created.

double agents

This picture really captured how protective the boys were about their portable race tracks. 

I kept this layout really simple.  I wanted to make sure your eye focused on the picture.  I used all 'older' paper, scraps and Thickers.

Mommy and Me

My older son started it.  He wanted me to stay in his room at night so I gave him a picture of us.  Then I thought it would be good to make a layout for his room.  Course I can't do that for one kid and not the other.  Here is what I made.

My husband takes good pictures.  And having a camera that takes 30 pictures on the 'quick shot' setting helps too.  I showed these to the boys and they ran off with the layouts!  I had to persuade each one to give them back so I can frame/protect the layouts.

DCWV, Fancy Pants and a few other brands were used.

I have been looking at these photos on my desk for over a month.  Today everything finally came together and I finished it.

I really like how it turned out.  All the photos pop, I used my All Mixed Up cartridge and my new splash brads.  I know it's simpler than other current layouts, but I really love this.
