Happy Birthday from the doggies

I was able to make a 2nd card today.  I pulled out my Paper Smooches bin and picked out a couple of stamp and die sets to make a birthday card for my husband from the doggies.

This week's challenge at Paper Smooches is Anything Goes.  Here's what I came up with...

The Paper Smooches items I used are:

Sentiment Sampler - Happy Birthday
Streamers - Stamps and Dies
Woofers and Tweeters Stamps - Pawprints, Heart and the Dog
Woofers Die

The doggie on the card matches what my little girl looks like today, lol.....

I used this card as my 2nd entry into the Enamel dots challenge at the Yahoo Group Scrappin'-n-Chattin'.

  Thanks for looking...

Happy Birthday Card

Today I made a card for my husband for his birthday today.  It's been a while since I made a birthday card, so it was quite fun.

I used this week's sketch at Mojo Monday.

And here's the card....

I also entered this card into the Yahoo Group Scrappin'-n-Chattin's Enamel dot challenge.

Surgery Day

We have had a bunch of snow here in New York.  We live about 150 northwest of the city, so it's a bit colder here and higher up.  We got about a foot of snow on Monday.  So while my husband was out clearing snow from driveways, I went into my scrapping room and created a layout.

It's been a long time nsince I've gotten crafty after work.  I really loved this week's sketch and Let's Scrap.  They always have sketches with so many photo options.

I wanted to document my granddaughter's surgery, so those photos seemed perfect for this sketch.  I used MAMBI's Baby Girl collection.  This is page 1.....

And this is page 2....

Sorry for the glare on the pictures.  I haven't set up my photography set up yet.  I need to get my room squared away.  This is both pages together.

Thanks so much for looking.  I am really enjoying creating again.  Stop by again to see what else I create.

1st Christmas

I have another page to share tonight.  This one is also of my granddaughter.

Since Leena was going to be in the hospital for Christmas, all of her NC family got together on the 23rd to celebrate her 1st Christmas.  This layout is of a photo of her before she started opening her gifts.

I used the 2nd sketch for January at Sketches In Thyme.  I think this was the perfect sketch for a Christmas page...

I used Oh Deer! collection from Fancy Pants for this page...

Thanks for looking...

First Day

Oh my!!  I can't believe it's been since May that I have blogged.  Wow.  Life has just been in the way.  I managed to make 3 pages today and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I really need to make crafting a priority.  It really made me feel better.

So the first page I have to share today is a layout of my granddaughter.  I used the January 1st sketch from Sketches In Thyme for my page.

Such a wonderful sketch.  I used Echo Park's That's My Girl collection.

Leena had to have a piece of her skull removed on Christmas Eve.  She got the band to reshape and protect her head on the 15th of this month.  She is such a trooper.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope to share many more in the weeks to come.
