Some swap cards for my buddies!

Here are the 2 cards that I made a couple weeks ago for a swap with a group of online scrapping friends. We each needed to make 1 birthday card and 1 thank you card for each person in the swap. These are my creations. Can't wait to get the swap back and see what everyone else made!

Spring Banner

Sorry it took me so long to get this posted, I have been really sick. This is this month's workshop, Spring Banner. The first picture is of the whole banner on my outside bench. The second 2 are some close ups of individual letters. This fits right in with my Easter decorations, but can be left up all season.

Spectacular Spreads

This is the layout that will be featured in my "Spectacular Spreads" class. I am definitely feeling the need for spring and really wanted to scrap these pictures. These pictures are Callie's first real feel of the grass. She pulled up her feet and hands and was going to do anything not to touch that grass! I love the little things, the everyday moments with my kiddos!

Layout is "Timeline" from Imagine (CTMH).

Home Sweet Home

I made this card for a challenge on the Allyscraps message board. THANK YOU FOR THOSE CHALLENGES! This card is for a good friend of mine that just bought a house and should be moving in sometime in April! I guess she will have to wait and see who she is! LOL!

Supplies used: Bazzill cardstock, October Afternoon Daydream paper (Paper lanterns & Poppy Garden), October Afternoon stamps (Home Sweet Home), Dots and Dashes ribbon, brads (Queen Company), Close To My Heart Exclusive inks in Autumn Terracotta and Crystal Blue.

One of my favorites

This layout is one of my favorites for many reasons. I very rarely do single page layouts and that is something that I have challenged myself to do. There also are not very many pictures taken of me and my wonderful hubby taken together. Another reason is that I really liked using the different shaped paper. It makes me think outside of the box, that is for sure!
