Gracie's Cookies

I love this photo. She was so proud of her work, stacking those cookies. :) She wasn't yet 2 here.

Journaling reads:
To you and me it's just a stack of nilla wafers. But in Gracie's eyes, it's an accomplishment. You see, she stacked them herself....and they didn't fall over.

Grampa & Gracie

Grace was just over a year old here. You can't tell how enamored Randy is with her already, can you. LOL They're still the best of buds....and he still can't say 'no' to her. Keep him in line, Grace. You go! ;)

This is all Heidi Grace, Wild Daisy Road. Papers, flowers, brads and chipboard accents -- all of it. I love this line.

Father's Day Card

Randy's favorite of all the cards I've done for him so far. :) I like it too. Fish, fly, and stitching are rub-ons. Alphas are Zoe mini and Diesel Classic with shadows, both by QuicKutz, of course.

Christopher's Baby Book

This book is one of the most special I think I've ever done. My stepson has been "mine" since he was an infant. DH gained custody when Christopher was about 9 months old and bio-mom has not been in the picture much at all throughout his life and before Randy and I married, I was his daycare provider so Christopher has always been like one of my own kids. I had no idea there were any baby pictures of him and when I ran across these in a box in the closet I was so excited I had to scrap them right away!!!! This will be his Christmas gift if I can wait that long to give it to him. :)

Album is 9x9 Making Memories. Papers are Ethan from the Making Memories Kids Line.

Emmy's Baby Book

FINALLY! Here is the slideshow for Emmy's baby book I did last month.

9x9 fabric covered album is by Making Memories; papers are Abby from the Making Memories Cheeky line. This is the last of the books for the grandbabies. Emmy will be 7 months next Saturday.

Hide & Seek

Isn't Mila the sweetest. Here she is "counting" while playing hide & seek with Olivia when the girls stayed with us a couple of summers ago. For this page I used QK scallop borders, flower border, and polka dot border as well as the SOF flower/circles die. Title is Fiesta--LOVE this new QK font!!! Sorry for the ickyness of the bright purple's really hot pink and matches beautifully to the papers. Pink is always a hard color for scanners to get right for some reason.

Another monkey card

This is another of the 4x4 Archiver's dies. The present isn't included, just the branch and leaves. I added the present as this is a birthday card.

Birthday card for nephew, Andy

I used the 4x4 Archiver's exclusive QK hippo die for the front of this card. Isn't the hippo cute as a cow!

Courtney & Great-Grandma

Randy's mom with Courtney a few years ago. Pic taken in Loveland, CO, at Grandma's house.

Wild Asparagus paper, title and word tags. Heart and tag are QK; misc ribbon and lace. Machine stitching.

Lego War 2000

Nothing special, just a fun layout with pics of the famous Lego War 2000 between Jeffery and Grampa. They had a lot of fun blasting each others compounds and lego forts.

Birthday card for Courtney

Adorable fairy die from Tinker & Co. from the UK. Isn't she sweet.


Couple of monkey tags and a card for Miss Grace. Can't wait till she comes to stay with us this summer.

Baby Tooth

Gracie's first lost tooth. I used shrink plastic to make little teeth embellishments for this page and tied string to mimic the pictures. This adorable fairy die is done by a company in the UK and I was so excited to be able to get one. Isn't she cute!? I used vellum for her wings and drew her face by hand. The title font is called Bright, by QuicKutz.

this is what 115 wedding invites looks like

Ta da! DONE! The wedding invitations, enclosures, labels, charms, ribbons.....DONE. Yippee!!

Finished product (with some bad editing -- sorry!)

And these are the favor boxes....only had to make 160 of these!! They sure turned out nice though.
