Mojo Monday-last post before baby comes!

Good day everyone!  I have just enough time for one last post before our baby is due later this week!  Now we're getting excited.  Not that we haven't been all along, but now it seems so close to happening!

Anyways, over at Mojo Monday they had a sketch for this week that we could choose to make a circle card or a square card.  I actually chose to make a regular card instead, but I guess you could consider it the square version...

My card:

I love this card-is that okay to say? 

Materials used:
Paper- London Market (pinkpaisley), Colonial White cardstock
Stamp- Hooray Bouquet (CTMH)
Ink- Black (CTMH)
Embellishments- Licorice Opaques (CTMH), Bliss Level 2 Assortment (CTMH), Bitty Buds Assortment (CTMH)

Thanks and talk to you later:)

Sean's Favourites- Board Book

Hi, all.  I've been sitting here feeling guilty because I haven't posted anything lately, so I thought I should at least say hi to let you all know that I'm still around (no baby yet:))  Then as I was going through my pictures just now I came upon an awesome project that I made a couple of years ago.  It's still one of my favourites, too.  This here is an old board book that was falling apart at the seams-literally.  I thought it would make a cute showcase for my son's favourite things.

I used an 8" board book and some old paper from Close to my Heart
I found the S at our local paper store.
Ribbon, buttons and hemp are also from CTMH.

I think he was 3 when I put this together.  His favourite activity was/still is puzzling.

His best friend was Rwar(his trusted teddy).

He also enjoys reading and playing with his buddies.

Sean loves/d to line up his animals on the table and have baths with his sisters:)

His favourite footwear is/was his crocs and morning just wouldn't be morning without Chocolate milk and a cookie:)

If you're wondering what kind of glue could keep a project like this together, I used Zip Dry Paper Glue and so far it's stayed together very well.
Thanks for looking and have a great day further!

Stella and Courtney

Here is the second layout I did at my mom's the other day:

For this layout I used the Stella Paper Pack, Trinity Stamp Set, Stella Compliments-Canvas Shapes, Baker's Twine-Paradise Assortment and Cocoa Ink.  The layout is a sketch I found online-sorry, I can't remember where right now... Enjoy!  Thanks for looking:)

Pemberley Layout

Good Afternoon!  I hope you've had a good day so far!  I have, although I think I worked too hard this mornin' and now have the sore body to prove it:)  Only 4 weeks to go though, so I need to whip this place into shape.  I think I may be nesting a little! 

Anyways, we spent a day scrapbooking at my mom's this week and I wanted to share with you a layout that I made.  I knew when I took these pictures that I needed red and blue paper to go with them.  I was so happy to see the Pemberley paper in the new idea book and decided to pair it with some tulip cardstock.  How do you like it?

I'm not sure why the pictures are showing up a little blurry on here...must be because I cropped them a bit before I posted.  Oh, well......

Materials used: all CTMH
Paper: Pemberley Paper Pack, Tulip cardstock, White Daisy cardstock
Stamps: Trinity Alphabet
Ink: Black
Embellishments: Pemberley Zipstrip, Outdoor Denim Bigger Brads, Just Blooms-Spring Blossom

This layout is from the Cruisin' WOTG on page 61 of the 2012 Spring/Summer Idea Book.  I altered the measurements to fit my pictures.  My pictures on the left page are 3 x 3"-to give you an idea if you want to give this a try.  If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me:)  Have a good one!
