This is a card I made for my husband for his 32nd birthday. I had never used white ink before, but I think it turned out pretty neat. You can't see it very well, but the solid black paper is corregated.

This layout is of Kierstynne and her two of her great grandmothers and her two grandmothers. She was only 4 days old in these pictures which were taken on May 15, 2004. This is Kierstynne's first trip to the Dentist. Dr. Wezmar is amazing with the kids. She was scared at first, but got over that really fast. Kierstynne and Grandma Joan. Boy, talk about two peas in a pod. They even sleep alike. They didn't know I had snapped these pictures during nap time. This layout is of my dream home. This house is on Route 92 here in Pennsylvania. I don't know what it is that facinates me so. I am totally in love with this house. From what I could see standing in the doorway, it reminds me of Tara from Gone with the Wind with the double curved staircase and gorgeous breezeway. I want this house... Kierstynne's first day of Kindergarden was a bittersweet moment. I thought I would be used to her being away all day because she had been in all day preschool. Well, let me tell you, it was totally different. There is just something final about the first day of kindergarden. No longer is she the toddler or baby. She has taken the first step toward the teenage years. Where did the last 5 years go...Way to fast. If I could put time in a bottle, thought, I would want her to stay just like she is now. Old enough to be a little independant, but young enough to still need mom.

Santa Card

I actually paid attention to the company that made this paper. It's DCWV. It came in the holiday pack. The santa and the frame were cut from the Joy of the Season Cricut Cartridge.

Christmas Card

Here is a cute little Christmas card I made using House of Mouse stamps. I used variations of red and green patterned paper. I used watercolor pencils to color in the mouse stamp.

Pink and Black Card

This card was made for the Card of The Month swap over at Scrappersbunkhouse on yahoo. This kit came from

Most Talented Eagle 2009

On September 18, 2009 Kierstynne entered the Abington Christian Academy talent show. She decided to sing "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas". The audience was responsible for voting for the winner. Kierstynne won first place with a total point value of 501. I was so proud of her. This was the first time she had wanted to get up in front of alot of people to sing. She has a beautiful voice, but is just a little shy. The trophy she won is almost as tall as her. I used a sketch from to make the layout. I never write down the companies my paper and embellies come from because I use all kinds. I do need to start though. Maybe I should organize my paper by companies..What do you think?

My Little Monsters...Digi-Kitty gave us a challenge to use this cute little monster. I turned them into Valentine's Monsters instead of Halloween Monsters. This little monster was a digi stamp from Digi-Kitty. For cute stamps and great challenges, check us out at This weeks challenge over at Digi-Kitty is "framed". Use a frame any way you can think of. This cute little owl frame came from "Wild Card" cricut cartridge. The phrases are also from the same cartridge.
