Wheels Inn

This page was very easy to assemble, thanks to the Easy Pattern in the September 2007 issue of Creating Keepsakes. As I was cutting the pieces according to the directions, I didn't think I was going to like it. I thought it was going to be another waste of paper, but I really like how it turned out. More importantly it was really easy to create.

Purse in a box

Check out this tutorial I found at Andrea Walford's website. I think this is so cute and was realtively easy to make. I decided to create a Christmas one. Mine didn't turn out quite as nice as Andrea's. I didn't have any "sticky strip", I just used mounting squares. I think the "sticky strip" would stick better. I also don't have the tab punch she used to make the handles, so I just created a handle with a strip of cardstock and two brads (this way, I can easily remove the handle to put the gift inside). Check out Andrea's website, she is very talented.

Bowling at Wheels Inn

A two page layout about our game of bowling at Wheels Inn. We took the kids there for March Break. It's an older hotel, but we had a good time. The page got cut off a bit during the scanning process. I need to get a 12x12 scanner. I also need to figure out how to post these pictures side by side. Thanks for looking.

Happy Birthday

Hunter is invited to a birthday party for his friend Julia. I made this card for her birthday.

Stampin' Up Stamps: Doodle This, Sincere Salutations
Ink (all Stampin Up except for black): black, lavender lace, certainly celery, pretty in pink and apricot appeal
Other: scallop punch (Stampin' Up), circle punch (Creative Memories), ribbon (Close to my heart)

There is dazzling diamonds glitter (Stampin' Up) on the flowers. I really wish glitter showed up in pictures, it really makes the card look so pretty. I'm not so sure about the circle embellishment with "Birthday Wishes"...but just decided to leave it as it is.

Sweet Baby Zoey

Another page about my beautiful niece, Zoey. These pictures were taken of her at the hospital. The outfit she was wearing was Hope's. It's hard to believe that Hope actually fit into it at one time.


I was doing some browsing today and found these adorable purses (follow the link below). Definitely have to try to make these.

I won a challenge!

Remember my Zoey layout? I created it based on a monthly sketch challenge at Scraptivity. Well, my layout won the challenge. Ok, so they chose the winner randomly and there were only a few entries, nonetheless I won and it made my day!!!

Happy Anniversary

Happy 1st Anniversary Sandi and Colin! One year ago, my baby sister got married. Can you believe it? I still think of her as a little girl, but she's a grown woman, with a husband and two beautiful children. Take a look at the card I made for their Anniversary.
