Christmas cards

I don't get on here to post as much as I'd like to . . . but I have been finding time to play in my scrap room!

Here are some cards I've made over the past week.

I love love love this paper (MyMinds Eye):


I made these cards (all CTMH products) for a class a few weeks ago:


Just a quickie card using a tree that I had stamped and put aside about a year ago!


This is a cute little coaster photo display I made to put a couple of Christmas photos of the boys in (photos will go on the coasters on either side of the O) . . .


1st grade layout - finally!

I know I've been promising this for a long time . . . I FINALLY finished it about a week ago and am just now getting it uploaded!

This was my oldest son's 1st day of school this year . . everything is Close To My Heart except the patterned paper. Enjoy!

Life, Christmas Tree and Free CTMH Stuff!!

Sorry I haven't posted in so long . . . life is moving at full speed and although I do find some time to play now and then in my scrap room, I don't seem to get time to photo and upload and post everything. I'll try to get some of my recent work up tomorrow.

We went out first thing this morning to get our tree at a local tree farm. The boys love searching for the perfect tree and helping Dad saw it down! I was so bummed because when I took my camera out to take photos (as I do EVERY year), my camera battery was dead! So, no pictures this year, but I will post a photo of the tree and decorations that we put up today. What a festive transformation - in just a few hours - whew!

If you haven't checked out Jeanette Lynton's blog yet (CTMH founder) you should. She is giving away a Level 2 paper pack from the beautiful new Spring 2009 Idea Book. I spent some time the other day reading through her blog and she is so inspiring. I hope you get a chance to check it out!

Hope you are all safe and well and that you are enjoying the start to this festive season! We're still waiting and hoping for snow, but it has been so mild lately, I'm not sure we'll see any until after the first of the year!

More tomorrow!
