A Few Things...

Hi, everyone!

It has been forever since I've posted.  Life has just been crazy.  Kids are growing so fast.  I finally have 1 full-time job working for an insurance agent (I even have my insurance license).  Plus, I graduate in May with my Bachelor's Degree!!  YEAH!!

Since we are snowed in today, I had some time to upload a few projects I've made.  These first 2 pictures are scrapbook pages I made for one of the guys I work with.  He and his wife are expecting their first baby any day now. 

They were both tickled with these!  He told me the next day that they are going to hang them up in the baby's room.  I didn't make it to the shower but I was told that when he was getting ready to open my present, some of the girls commented that it would have to be good since "Jenny is so crafty, she probably even made the wrapping paper."  Of course, I didn't make the wrapping paper, lol!

The next 2 things I'm going to show you use the same image from DigiStamp Boutique, called Pippa and Sonny with rose (found here).  When I saw this couple, I just fell in love!  Then while browsing on Splitcoast Stampers, I found a card with the saying that I'm also using on both projects.

I printed out the sentiment on my computer and colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  I am so proud of the little bow, lol!  I used the "fork technique" and it turned out good.  The next project uses the same image and sentiment, just in a completely different way.

This has got to be my favorite!!  I finally used my Copics (I have a lot more to learn but my selection of colors is limited right now).  The bigger hearts on the sentiment panels are the same one that is right above Sonny and Pippa, just bigger and a couple are flipped over.  I think I'm going to give this one to my BF for Valentine's Day (but I will take orders, hehehe).

Some challenges I'm entering with these projects...
Sundays With Crissy ~ Love
Bee Crafty ~ Hearts
Paper Sundaes ~ Valentine's Day
Stamptacular Sunday ~ Whateva
Delightful Challenges ~ Have a Heart
I'm sure there are others that are out there so if you see one, let me know!!

Well, I need to get back to some homework now.  I have midterms this weekend!
