TGF Heart Journaling--week 16

Hi!  Gee, I can't believe the week has flown by already and here I am trying to post my entry for TGF's Heart Journaling almost at the last minute again.  I thought about quitting but I'm already more than half way there so I got myself to hurry up and make the page I wanted to.  This week is to use hearts so I thought that should be relatively easy.  But I didn't really know what to do with the hearts.  Then I remembered this tutorial by Jessica Witty (see HERE) where she made a heart garland from crepe paper using a heart die.  So I thought I'd finally try that.

But instead of crepe paper, I used tissue paper with my heart dies from MFT.  I also stamped some hearts from TGF.  The quote is one of my favorites and I love jewelry that has these little inspirational quotes.  I don't usually by them for myself though.  I think they make great presents especially for graduation.

Alright, that is it.  This Saturday is our Lego Robotics qualifiers.  I still have last minute photos to develop and some other stuff to complete.  But I'm sick again and so is my youngest.  The cold my daughter had is finally making its way through our house.

Thanks for reading and have a great week!

Neat heart garlands! You can finish the heart journaling! Can't be that many more weeks, right? I wonder if people can keep up through the holidays. Good luck at Lego! So much work for all of you. Crossing my fingers that we all don't catch anything more out here, I think we've had our share of germs from August through October.

Cool tissue paper journaling, Eva! And Lego Robotics sounds like a lot of work, lol. But I shouldn't laugh - my son loves Legos - so I might be in the same boat - hahaha. Hope you and your little one are feeling better soon!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
