One day down four more to go! Hope your Tuesday is off to a good start!

Today I am bringing you a layout I did of my nephew/godson Tyler. This picture was taken during a family event at my house. My husband was playing with Tyler making scary laughing sounds at him and Tyler thought they were so funny he was just laughing.

I love this picture of him cause it totally captures his personally. I do belive when he grows up he will be the class clown and there will be lots of calls up to the school about him not listening.

I used my Swirlydoos "Mon Amour" kit for this layout as it highlighted his red shirt

Motherhood Journey

Well it's Monday again! I am sad to see the weekend come to an end and another long work week arrive.

This layout is of my cousin Traon on the day we took her to register for her baby gifts at Buy Buy Baby. This was such a long but fun day we even had to take a lunch break from registering for baby gifts. There is so much to pick out and consider for a baby maybe that is why I don't have kids LOL!!!. I kind of like being the aunt that can return them after watching them for a while and buy them all the annoying loud gifts and then send them home to their parents

I used my Swirlydoos "Mon Amour" kit to create this layout.

Valentine's Day Cards

Good Morning! I hope everyone's Sunday got off to a better start than mine. I woke up with a sinus headache and sometimes they can be really bad and today was one of them. I took my Nasnex and it's starting to go away but I did miss church but we tape our Sunday services so I am able to listen to any of the Sunday services I have bought and feel like I am right there.

I know that I am posting these a month late but with my computer problems. I was not able to post until now. These are the two cards I made for my husband on Valentine's day on the last minute. I usually just go buy the cards but since I was not leaving the house and needed some cards I made them and think they turned out really well.

I know you can't tell on this picture but I embossed the heart in clear.

Well, I am off to create some more!

My First Altered Item

Happy Saturday Everyone! I hope you are enjoying your Saturday so far as I am thoroughly enjoying mind. I slept in late, got dressed, scrapbooked a little, ate some lunch, took a nap, and now I am back to scrapping and watching old Charlie Angels episodes. But enough about me and on to what you actually came here to see.

I love reading blogs and seeing all of the items that people do and I am so envious at many of the altered items I see people create. One day while reading some blogs I found some easy directions on the Unity Opportunity Blog unityopportunity-blog.blogspot.com. I went to Michael's and got this cute little oval and other items on the shopping list and decided I will do this.

I sat down and just followed the instructions and here is my finished project. I am so proud that I actually did this and maybe one day I will be able to harder pieces like birdhouses like my cousin Robin http://robinshakoor.blogspot.com/2011/02/for-birds-graphic-45-once-upon.html did. I was in A.C. Moore yesterdy and looked at one that was just so adorable but I am far off from doing something like that. I think I want to try an altered notebook or clipboard next.

Happy Birthday Card

Happy Saturday to you all! I hope you are all having a relaxing day and getting some scrapping done. I am getting ready to start on some projects and take pictures of some projects that I have completed but have not yet had a chance to take pictures of.

I got my new computer and I am all up and running on it. This is my first post from my new computer I finished adding all of my stuff this morning so I can get back to the more important things in life like scrapbooking and relaxing.

Here is the birthday card I made to go with the birthday present I made for my husband's friend's wife for her 40th birthday present. Dana and Jeff LOVED the gift which I was so glad for.

Inside of Card:

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day!
