Thank you and farewell

Well summer is almost over and for me that means sending the kids to school but also the start of a new job.  I made this card as a thank you for my former co-workers who gave me some of the nicest farewell gifts.  I am really going to miss them and I have a few more cards to make since they were incredibly generous.  I used the following sketch as a starting point.

Supplies used: DCWV paper, Unity Stamps, Distress Ink

First Impressions

Here is another layout from my son's album.  These were taken in the hospital when everyone came to meet him.  He was so tiny and so cute, and seemed so fragile (he was just over 6lbs).   I combined some old and new in this layout, there are some older MME papers mixed with some new Simple Stories Oh Snap Baby cards.  I love combining some old and new stuff since I feel justified in getting both.

Supplies used:  Twine,  Simple Stories Oh Snap Baby Cards, MME Paper, Spellbinders Creative page tabs

What's up Doc?

Just getting caught up with some projects that I haven't posted, I am starting to finish my son's 1st year album and I love looking at how he has grown.  I started this layout while punching some hexagons from scraps at the time I was at a crop and didn't have time to finish.  When I got home it sat in a pile till I found it again and decided to finish it.  I love use of hidden journaling pockets at this one is no different.  This is the doctor who delivered both of my children, he was such a great doctor I remembered being so happy that I got him as my OBGYN.  I loved using the hexagons that I had to scour and find a die set for more sizes and I am happy to say I did.  They are so much fun to work with.

It's hard to see in the photo but I popped up some of them for a bit of added dimension
