Baby Girl album

Another Baby Album... This a gift for a friends sister whom is having as you can tell a little girl. I kept it simple but added a little bit of direction this round with a few titles and then since this is a 20 page album added in the months so each month she can take a picture and have a time line of her little one to see how she has grown. That is a nice thing about an actual album you can add those special events like monthly pictures to see life changes. So enjoy this special little album...  Babys information goes here Picture spot for baby  Precious little Angel w/ journaling tags  Mommy and Me and Daddy and Me pages  Special Moments page 1 Month and 2 months 3 Months and 4 months 5 Months and 6 Months 7 Months and 8 Months 9 Months and 10 Months 11 Months and 1 Year Last Page is just a ending for a random sweet baby picture Hope you enjoyed the album Tomorrow I should have the pictures of the bag book Lizzie has requested don

Bag Book for Jack

A dear friend just had a baby boy and I wanted to make a little treat for her so I made a bag book. These papers I got from Etsy they are digital papers from a company called Moo & Puppy located in Colorado Springs.  I am also using this line in one of the cards for our June class so think of this as a sneak peak on the paper.  The circle with Its a Boy I cut using the Silhouette - Shape is from Echo Parks new line  Stickers in this book are from We R Memory Keepers and they are discontinued Love this line and sad that I can no longer get them. I only use them for special people!!!  A few tags here for some journaling Kept it really simple since it is for a boy and no frills:). But also I have no clue what pictures so when I do this kind of a book I want to make sure I am not overwhelming the recipient with to many directions with titles and such.  Generic baby stickers from We are Memory Keepers -  very neural  More space for Journaling  This is

Mothers Day gift - Finished!

Lizzie has been working on a special project for me for Mothers Day and with school, work and well everything else has just finished it up. As you can see it is a long process as she decided to color and code tags for me with all my Copic markers. Some colors had to be discarded as they are empty and cannot be replaced locally and some are almost empty but we can replace locally so we kept those colors. the list went on and on as to why this took a bit of time to do. Now I will know what I have when I go to the store, what needs to be replaced and what I need to get as well as what coordinates with what color for a project. Its a great and handy tool. I thought she was going to make me a color chart and here I got a huge ring of tags. Its one awesome present and just what I have been needing.  Here they are all out in rainbow fashion Here is a shot of them on the ring. And the other wonderful thing is Alli my oldest daughter had sent me a Hobby Lobby gift card so I added

Imagine That! Shopping trip

Here are some of the papers I got when I was shopping at the store in Roswell New Mexico  The store was named Imagine That!  It has about 7200 square feet of shopping and I browsed through 1 large room of fun stuff and 2 smaller rooms before we had to go. Miranda was not impressed until I had her help me look for stuff and even then was just ready to go. As you can imagine I did not see everything but then again I think I covered what would get me through the next few weeks....  Got this for a bag book for Baby Norah  Terry has been talking of doing a Dino book and I saw this paper from 3 bugs in A Rug and just thought it was so cute. I got extra to even try to do a semi girly one for Norah as Liz loves Dino's... Little Yellow Bicycle had a set of stickers that I had to add in as well.  Couldn't pass up on a few of the animal items they had. as well  Love this divided 12X12 paper I found it is perfect for cards gives me 8 choices! This one is by Nikk

Ten Thousand Waves in Santa Fe where we spent time in a private spa. it was amazing. We had a hot tub, Sauna and a small waterfall tub which was a colder mini pool to cool off in.  This is a shot of the entrance and the cool off waterfall pool in the bottom right corner with Jason and Miranda in it Shot of the area you can sit and watch Off to the side of the spa area is a natural area The sauna is just past the spa This is a great shot of the whole hot tub it was really a nice size for all of us The deeper end of the pool was perfect for swimming Fun shot of Miranda Sitting with my girlie After we left here we went to the hotel and just rested it was a wonderful night.  Next we headed down to Roswell New Mexico and met some new friends.....
