Hugs for a Friend

I made this for the MFT's Designer contest. Love this cute image. I used Cosmo Cricket Social Club paper. I had not broken into that 6X6 pad yet and decided I wanted to use some unconventional dp for a winter card. Colored in Copic markers, and stamped in Memento Ink. I used the MFT's tag die as well as their Wonky scallop die-namic for the snow drifts. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch. And some stickles.

Now if I actually win this designer contest I am going to flip out, lol. Everything in life will be on hold for a month, lol. I'm not too worried about it though, there are so many fabulous design contest entree's. I figure the more I push myself to do, the better I will get at all of this. And of course, it is what I do for fun.

Wish me luck!

Nursey Time

This is for the MFT's design contest as well as the sketch contest. LOVE this paper and this is the first time I've used it, lol.

When Jeep was eight

I made a chip board album of my youngest son's eighth year. It's quite thick, lol. I found all kinds of wonderful card designs from the designers of My Favorite Things, and I had them all lined up in tabs.....but then the computer crashed and now I can't remember which was from whom. But the original designs belong to the designers and I incorporated my own things into them. LOVE their card designs and it inspires me to go further.

Many of the stamps and dies I used were from MFT's.

The cover reminds me of growing, so I decided to use the tree dies. The second page is Jeep's eighth birthday with Uncle David assisted in the present opening. The third is a snowman that Jeep, his dad and uncle David made, The fourth is learning how to ride a bike. The fifth is a camping trip he went on with the cub scouts and he is helping my grandson on the hike. The next one is working hard in Tae Kwon Do. The next one is bridging over to a Bear scout. On the next one, Joe took Jeep to a Dodger's baseball game for the fourth of July. The next one is Jeep getting brave and finally going on the ferris wheel at that fair. And then the start of soccer season and learning how to use a sling shot at another Cub Scout camp out. Halloween with his BMF, aren't they cute Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter....ready to take on the world. The next one is Aunt Nancy and Uncle David with Jeep on Dad's birthday. The next one is this past December, Jeep earned his black belt in Tae Kwon Do (watch out for him!), and finally the back of the album is a Tim Holtz clock die that reminds me of time passing by quickly. I have thoroughly enjoyed this year with Jeep and I had a lot of fun making this album. :)
