New Stuff and Favorites

If you're looking for the Blog Hop, it's in the post below.

Here's a layout I forgot to post from the stamp challenge I was hosting at Peek.

The challenge was to use stamps to make a border. I used Technique Tuesday Borderline Notions for the borders.

This is using the new Flair Fresh & Fabulous:

I cut the crown on my Cricut. The clear buttons have the Flair line underneath them with glitter on top. Old school. ;)

Now, here are my latest and favorite Cosmo layouts. ;)

That's it! Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to leave a comment in the post below for your chance to win a great set of stamps from Technique Tuesday.

Blog Hop with Candy

It's time for another blog hop with candy from the Bitten by the Bug team. I have a great set of stamps from Technique Tuesday that I'm giving away this time.

Regina asked us to use the "Freedom" cut from Graphically Speaking. Here's my take below:

Just leave a comment on my blog to be entered into a random drawing at the end of the week.

Now, after you leave me a comment, please be sure to hop on down to Carole's blog.

Thanks for visiting!

Card Story

The kids love to make cards. They pull out a scrap piece of cardstock, use my Score-Pal and go to town. Trent's are usually complicated with lots of pockets and fancy folds. Katrina only folds hers once and for whatever reason, she always writes her name in big letters on the outside.

Right now she is making a card for Kiersten. Kiersten died over a year ago but she thinks I can somehow get this card to heaven. On the inside, it says, "I love you, Kiersten" and it is full of butterflies and flowers (some I drew for her), caterpillars and a sad face with tears.

Here are some layouts. I get some stuff done even though I've been so busy.

another day

It's been a bad week.

First, we spent 24 hours in the hospital with Trenton. He was having severe stomach pain with a low grade fever. He was soooo close to having surgery to remove his appendix, but somehow his white blood cell count lowered rather quickly and he was spared what would have been a very traumatic event in his little life. The IV the nurse put in his hand just about sent the kid over the edge.

This morning, Erik's grandmother died. Her name is Annette. The kids could never say, "Annette", so they called her "Grandma Neck".

I've been so busy this summer and I've hardly completed any layouts. I do have a few to share, though.
