One more...

It's been a long day today. I had some injections into my neck today. ugh So this is my last post then I'm off to bed.

This is a book that I made as a surprise for my son and his girlfriend. They took a trip to NY recently and sent me pictures. What's a Mom to do but create a keepsake. Right?

I won't go into detail what each picture is about, but you'll get the idea.

thanks for checking in on me.

Yes, I'm still here....

Here are a few scrap pages that I've done recently.

Here's a couple pages of Ciara, 17 years ago. The journaling reads:
When Ciara was in kindergarten her hair was very long. In school the other girls would play her hair so much that she would have trouble concentrating on her school work. So one day she asked to have it cut. We cut it first to her shoulders then up to her ears. Ciara loved it!

Here's a close up of some of the flowers I used. The second page was part of a challenge on What an addicting site that is!

Here's another page I created for two challenges. One was to use a template and the other was to scrap your pets. So I combined the two.

And a close up of the flower I made...Isn't it cute!?

Another Caardvarks

I decided I had time for one more Caardvarks monochromatic card challenge using Core'dinations Cardstock. Isn't it a beauty!?

The card base is Night of Navy from SU. The next layer is white glossy paper ran thru with the swiss dots folder from Cuttlebug, then Co-ordinations whitewash cardstock was ran thru with Cuttlebug's paisley folder. I distressed the edges, sanded some of the embossing and added ink in other spots. I then curled up the corners. The image is from MFT colored with a range of blue colored pencils and a blender pen. I created a hat pin, attached some lace and then the pretty petaloo flower.
thanks for stopping in,
