I created this layout for our upcoming January Club. It features the La Belle Vie paper pack, La Belle Vie Workshop on the Go, Monograms Stamps, Rosette Ribbon, Black Tulle Ribbon, Bling Assortment, Designer Brads, Boutique Assortment, and the Artiste Cricut Cartridge all from Close To My Heart. We also used the Get It Straight Laser Square from KellyCraft. The Get It Straight Laser square was a must for this layout. It really helped to get all of the pieces aligned perfectly and to make the finished product look fabulous! I love, love, love this layout!!

WOW! What a year 2012 has been for our family! We had two children graduate High School. One join the Marines and the other one start college. Our 16 year old son got his driver's license and Kendall started school! Needless to say we have been BUSY! With so much going on the last few months I have not taken the time to post much so while we have a little time off work I am going to try to post some of my recent artwork and a few pics of the family. We are so very blessed and can't wait to see what adventures 2013 will hold for us. We wish you all the best and hope you had a wonderful holiday season!

Convention was such a fun, but exhausting event! We learned so much and made so many great projects in just 3 days! Needless to say, I didn't get them all finished at convention so I have been working on getting everything finished up this week. I have one last project left to complete (the scroll album), but I wanted to go ahead and post the pictures of all the other projects we made. We made a mini-album, 6 cards, 3 two-page layouts, and 1 one-page layout. HEre are the layouts and I will post the cards and mini-album shortly. Enjoy the pics and let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!

Wow! I can't believe it has been so long since I last posted. I have never been the best blogger, but I can't believe that it has been over three months now. The last three months have been absolutely insane in our house. Nick and Ryan both graduated High School in May. Then a week later, Ryan left for the Marines and Nick started his classes at the Vast Academy at HCC in Houston. What a crazy, fun, wild ride these last few weeks have been. James and I are both teaching summer school. Jefferson is enjoying the time off before his junior year and Kendall can't wait to start kindergarten. Ok, now that everyone is caught up on our life, on to the good stuff! I have been making cards for the upcoming Close To My Heart Convention in Dallas, TX. This is my first convention and I beyond excited!! I have made fifty cards (10 each of 5 designs) to swap with my wonderfully, talented CTMH sisters. Here are the five cards I created. I hope that someone (well actually 50 people) is willing to swap with me! Let me know what you think and I will try to post a little more often. I actually have several layouts I need to post and some great family stuff to share!

Ok, I am seriously in LOVE with the Footloose paper pack! I spent the weekend working on a club layout for April using this paper pack. The only problem is that I just kept creating and came up with three layouts! So now our hostess has to pick which layout we will be creating at club. Here are the pics of the three layouts. The H2Oh! layout is the Visual Texture design from the Cherish Sketch Book. The Paradise layout is the Personality Presence layout from the Imagine Sketch book. The Life's A Beach layout also came from Imagine and it is the Medley design. As you can tell, I modified each design to fit the needs of the layout and paper pack. I am excited to put pictures from our Beach House stay last summer on these pages! I will post pics of the layouts once I have pictures on them and will let you know which one our hostess pics for April's club.
These are the items I completed for our display board swap using the Cruisin' Paper Pack. This layout was so much fun to make. I think I am going to modify it slightly and use it for my club layout in June! I will post the modified version soon! As always, all products are Close To My Heart. The layout design is from the Imagine Sketch Book.
I participated in a couple of swaps recently and I was assigned the Victory paper pack by Close To My Heart. These are the items I created for both swaps. I love, love, love this paper pack. It works perfectly for pics of our three boys!
We will be creating this layout on March 23rd at 6:00 PM at the First United Methodist Church in Cleveland, TX. We would love to have you join us for an evening of food, fun, and fellowship! The layout features the new Florentine Paper Pack by Close To My Heart. The layout design is from the Imagine Sketch Book, with a little modification.
