Three Layouts I Completed Today

I took my sweet time today with my cute little Sleepy that I put on pop dots! Broke out the Cricut and cut that cute little guy out. I used CTMH PP, 2 stamp sets, flowers, and buttons.

I am not caught up in all the kiddos school albums! I used the BG Recess line again. I also used two stamps from CTMH, colored them in, cut 'em out, and pop dotted them on the LO! This is simple for my style, but I really do not like doing school Layouts.

This is a Hodge podge of stuff I had for Annie's 1st grade page for her school album and I love it! The picture of the kids at the school table is actually a page from a book that I cut down and inked the pages. I did not mind doing this page. Actually, I enjoyed it. I think I don't like the paper and embellishments that are designed for a certain topic. I always do better with things I love and doing my own creation with it -- like I did on this LO! :-)

Some Recent Creations

Here are a few things I have done this last week.
This is a LO I completed about the scariest day of my life! It was the day I could not find my four year old at the play area in Sea World. He is a monkey and was climbing up the rope ladder. I could not keep up, but by the time I got down and to the exit he was gone! He was gone for 45 minutes and we almost had the police out there. Then he showed up. I was a wreck and could not decide it I was just gonna cover him in kisses or ring his little neck.....his dad bought me a beer and hand him pose with it. No, he did not drink the beer!

I am really behind on my kids school album, so these are the few I did to catch Logan up on his. It is the Basic Grey Recess line and I actually think it is OK. Not my best work, but done.

Created this clear album for a friend from HS Christmas pictures. Once again I made the flowers using my Cricut, CS, ink and GM.

These are my Valentine Cards! I found an awesome company called "Bombshell Stamps" that specialize in pin up girls, tattoos, and hot rods. Totally up my ally!

A Few More I did Today....

Here are three LOs I did today using the same CTMH line that I had been working out of. All of these are CTMH with the exception of the ribbon. That is from my stash! TFL!

Handmade Flowers

I have NEVER EVER made flowers. I have made lollipop flowers, but those are easy. Since I have never ever made flowers I decided to sign up for four slots in a swap at OSU and these are my first attempts. Each flower is made with 18 hearts cut on my Cricut from Canvas Colored CS that I GMed the heck out of once I got the flowers made. Aleta (hostess of the swap and my friend) put up some awesome tutorials. I used one of them to complete these. I am a bit nervous.....these ladies do excellent work and I feel totally out of my league.

Please leave me feedback and tell me how I can improve these because I don't want to send crappy flowers.
