welcome baby card

here was a card that i made for a neighbor who had a precious baby boy a few weeks ago...i love the colors together...and i've been so addicted to bird stamps lately, but i have none! that is, until i found this one in "wild about you"...i need to invest in some more bird stamps because i love them! hope you enjoy!
we are home and settled with the new little addition! milo has been great thus far, and he is getting used to sleeping through kisses, pats, rubs and toddlers in his face! it's very cute, how much they love being around him. they are enjoying being a new big brother and big sister! i will post more pictures of him soon! take care!
supplies used:
bashful blue, wild wasabi, certainly celery, whisper white cardstock. wild wasabi, bashful blue ink. white grosgrain ribbon, circle punches, scallop scissors.

milo campbell is here!

well, HE has arrived! we have waited so long for this little guy (and to know what this little "guy" was), and he is finally here. he arrived early this morning at 3:30 am. his name is milo campbell anderson! he weighed 7 lbs and was 18 inches...pretty good size considering he was 4 weeks early! he has a full head of black hair (i swear, will any of my kids ever look like me???). anyways, i will write more later, but enjoy the pics of the family!

i received a beautiful "brak" in the mail the other day! this was sent by margaret schoener. thank you margaret! i have so appreciated all the rak's i received for my birthday...they have all brightened my days! now, i need to return the favors!

well, today has been exciting...i went into the doctors office, because i have been having contractions all day long (since like 3 this morning). sadly though, no labor yet. so, she sent me home...hopefully soon though!

have a great day!


wedding shower invite

this is a picture of a wedding shower invite that i made for a lady at church. the confetti lifts up and all of the shower info is on the celery behind it. i'm really loving how "naturey" it turned out!
supplies used: chocolate chip, certainly celery, confetti white paper, celery ink, paper source stamp, hemp twine.

well, i am off to take a nap...this baby is wearing me out...i wish it would get here already (yah, that way i can be living off even less sleep than i am now!). oh, i'm just so tired these days, and i know that won't change when the baby comes...that's the scary part, and the thing i'm looking forward to the least!
have a great day!

almost done!

one thing i love about a post album is that you can skip around and do any page you may feel like doing (as opposed to a strap hinge album). my son's first year album was a strap hinge, and i vow never to use those again...i did so many re-doing of pages...it's just so nice to be able to sit down and if i feel like scrappin' christmas, then i will, or if i feel like scrappin' a birthday, then i'll do that. i don't have to stay in any sort of order, since at the end, i will be putting them in order. i feel like my scrap booking is a lot better now too, because i'm doing pages that i actually want to do...make sense? anywho, this layout is one of my daughter, hadley, and her first days home from the hospital. this is one of the last layouts i needed to complete in order to finish her book (which i hope to have done by the time baby #3 arrives!) i only have a few more pages and then i'll be done! enjoy! and have a great day!
supplies used: so saffron 12 x 12 paper, soft sky paper and ink, tempting turquoise ink, cool caribbean ink, friends simply scrappin kit, big deal alphabet, tempting turquoise marker


oh man, it's begun

well, so, it's finally begun...i have entered the blogging world! how exciting! i have spent months and months cruising through everyone else's blogs, loving everyone else's blogs...pretty much obsessing over everyone else's blogs...and now, i've started my own! my hope is that you can find a bit of creativity here, as well as catch up on what's happening in my life. this will be great for our out of town family...especially for updates on our kiddos! okay, so i will leave you with a picture of our family...my good friend allyson took it...check out her website at: http://web.mac.com/inthemomentphotos

she takes amazing pics! enjoy!
