A Birthday Present

Hi!  I actually got some crafting done ... woohoo!! 

I found this wonderful project online and thought it would be a great gift for someone.  My boyfriend's mom is having her 80th birthday next Tuesday and I wanted to make her something.  Her favorite color is peach and found some paper that I had on hand that was close to peachy.  Then I found a card that I case'd, here, although I didn't use a crimper to make the lines (I used my Scor-Pal).

The challenges:
Daisy Doodles Creative Challenges ~ summertime (flowers & peachy color counts?)
Ooh-La-La Challenge Blog ~ simply summer (flowers & peachy color again)
Stampin' Sisters in Christ ~ stripes (embossed lines)
Allsorts Challenges ~ embossing (embossed lines)

Thanks for stopping by!  :)

Something New ... (and an update)

Sorry I've been away for awhile!! I've missed doing crafts and things on a regular basis. I made something I've been wanting to do for awhile and I think it turned out okay. Think I need to do more of these!

Here are two scrapbook pages that I made. I think they turned out really good! I've only made 3 other pages in my life. :) This first page has a 5x7 spot for a picture of the newlyweds.

This second page has a 4x6 spot for the wedding party and 3 spots that are 3x3 for any pictures they want to include from the reception.

These fit the following challenges (that I know of):

Stamp Something ~ Something Summer challenge (there are lots of summer weddings)
The Sweet Stop ~ sketch (page 1 sort of fits this sketch)

I'm also going to take a plunge and enter it for a Design Team call for "Lasting Memories", call found here. It never hurts to try and if I get selected, that means I'll have to make more scrapbook pages!

If you know of any others that I could enter, please let me know! I've been out of the loop for awhile. :)

Well, I'm still in school and currently working just part-time which sucks!! I start a second part-time job on July 6th that could turn full-time after I'm fully trained that I'm excited about! My classes are not too bad this session. I have 2 papers to write that have to each be at least 5 pages long. Plus I just got diagnosed with Hypothyroidism ... no wonder I've been tired lately! I had it once before but my doctor said it was probably pregnancy related. Well, looks like it's back and I'll be on meds the rest of my life now.

I'm going to try to start posting a little more often if I can.
