Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday and a great new year. I always love the start of the new year--fresh goals, a fresh start. We've been busy around here--really busy. But we had a blast during Christmas and my parents came to visit during New Years so we've been having so much fun. This is our family picture that we used for our Christmas card this year. I thought it turned out so cute! And I had us wear the same colors that are in my living room so that it will match my decor! haha
I'm loving the teal, yellow, and black color combo right now-- it looks so fresh and put together. I used some prima flowers and some older Maya Road pins and paired them up with Echo Parks papers.
So I have a little love affair with my Sillhouette--I can't help it. If you have one, you know what I'm talking about! Look at this cute diecut thank you card? I embellished it with some BasicGrey papers, Prima flowers, and some Maya Road ribbon.
Have a great day! My little ones are coming home from early release today, I better find something for them to do!
I can't believe how fast the days are flying by--it's already Halloween! It's my favorite holiday and we've had so much fun this month
making spooky stuff and eating creepy snacks. I created a couple
Halloween cards for you today--
I'm loving my Silhouette-- and I have been for years, but I've been using it a lot more lately! I'm always finding new ways to use it! And I just fell in love with this Frankenstein! Isn't he cool?
Sorry I've been MIA lately--just some little health problems, three boys, and life! But I want to get back on track with my blogging!

Here's my layout--I used the divided page protectors that come in the collection (there are 5!) So many little darling details in this collection--everything you think of when you hear Jenni Bowlin!
I can't believe it's almost July! The fourth is coming up and I'm so
excited, as are my boys. Every time we drive past a fireworks stand they
almost pee their pants with excitement! They have even saved up a
little of their chore money to buy their own fireworks--I'm sure they
can get some snakes or sparklers for a dollar or two! ;) (anyone else
love Joe Dirt? snakes and sparklers... haha)
been busy this past month--a trip to Utah to visit family, school
ending, painting my living room, and dealing with the heat! But I'm
finally able to make a post!
Here's some cards I've
been working on--I love these new stamps from Hero Arts. I was skeptical
at first, I thought they kinda looked like they would turn out funny,
but they are fantastic! They look like real splattered paint!
And Here's a card using some Hexagon stamps also by Hero Arts--
I hope you get the chance to play in the sun today--maybe break out that slip 'n' slide. That's what we are doing! First, off to slather some sun screen on this pale body!
I feel so lucky and blessed to get to work with really fantastic companies! I got asked to create some fun cards with some beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers, stickers, and goodies! Oh man, are they just simply adorable! The post will go up tomorrow on the Pebbles blog-- go check it out! Here's some sneak peaks of what you will see:
Hello everyone! I have a little card to share with you today using Hampton Arts new Bundle of Joy stamp set. I paired it up with the matching papers from Echo Park's Bundle of Joy collection.
I love those stars! And they are easy to cut out! I used the Echo Park solid paper for my base, rounded the corners, and added some patterned papers to one side. The stamps are the easiest to use. I love Hampton Arts stamps because they are so easy to clean off! The hardly ever stain, and the images are always crisp and clear!
For a chance to win either a stamp prize from Hampton Art or one of
three collection kits from Echo Park Paper, please continue on the blog
hop leaving a comment on each blog. Winners will be selected and
announced both on the Echo Park Paper and Hampton Art blogs on Monday,
April 29th. All comments are due by Sunday, April 28th at midnight EDT
to qualify. Here is the blog hop list:
My goodness, it's been a month since I last posted! I'm such a slacker! Time goes by so fast--we've had a bunch of family stuff. Landen's Birthday, My birthday, Cooper's birthday, and Easter--whew! I got a little distracted with all the planning and partying! ;)
Can you believe my little Coop is 2!? 2!!!! I can't. He's getting so big... and using so many words now. He was playing kickball with the boys in the hallway and as I walked past he looked at me and said, "Watch out mommy!" Ok--not in perfect pronunciation, but I could totally understand him! That's his first three word sentence! :) Gets me all choked up!
Landen is 5 now--a whole hand. And he thinks he is big time grown up. I guess he is... I just don't want to believe it! He asks me everyday if Kindergarten starts tomorrow. haha--you've got a couple months kid! The way he thinks just makes me laugh. The other day Logan was talking about playing basketball at practice and how he kept hitting 3 pointers and the coach told him he was on fire. Then Landen said, "It's ok Logan, don't be scared. You aren't really on fire. He was just teasing you." Hehe Made me giggle.
So I have a few Echo projects for you--there are FREE PDF's to go with them too--just click on the image and it will take you to the link! Check out all the other designers work while you are over there--some stunning work!
Hope you had a great Easter and are enjoying a little bit of warmer weather! We've broken out the t-shirts around here! :)
