One of My Favorite Scrapbook Pages!

I have been in the card "mode" for awhile, it seems I can't make cards AND scrapbook at the same time. I am getting behind on my scrappin these days! This is a layout I did a few months ago about my daughter. She finally discovered that she likes baby dolls! She has a favorite doll that she mysteriously named "Gloria!" Not that I don't like the name Gloria, but I know NO ONE with that name! Not a family member, friend, teacher, or aide! And NO she has never heard the song "Gloria!" Beats me! So Gloria now has her own doll bed, wardrobe, and probably more accessories than me! (OK maybe I'm exaggerating a wee bit! LOL)

And The Winner is....

Cindy Keery!!! Congratulations!
Her suggestion for my banner was: Welcome to the world of blogging! It's lots of fun. Hmmm I like your blog title... you could put the first 3 words in a smaller font so your main title would be "Cardmaking Scrapbooker".

E-mail me your address and I will get your goodies out to you!

Thanks to all of you wonderful ladies who participated! It was great getting to "meet" some new people as well! I can't tell you how much your kind words mean to me!

I may do this again when I hit 2,000! Mmmmmmm.....

Another baby card...It's a Girl!

A teacher I work with just had a baby girl and I wanted to make her a girly card. I borrowed this SCS set from my Mom-in-law and embossed the image of the Christening gown. I wanted it to have a vintage feel so I distressed and inked, used my sewing machine, ripped and even inked my pink ribbon. I added the rhinestone to give it that extra girly touch. Love those baby cards!!

Don't forget...Blog candy drawing tomorrow at 10:00P.M. ( I don't think I'll make it to midnight!)

Thank You! Blog Candy...and a new card!

I am so excited that through this blog candy, I met some new friends! That's really what it's all about isn't it? I feel like there is a whole world out there when I get on the computer...Like my own Narnia! (MMMMMM...possible banner name?...)We didn't do a whole lot yesterday afternoon...cleaned...did a little laundry...and of course....MADE some CARDS!!!! Here is one of them! It was a stamp from HAMBO! I thought this little guy was adorable! I will have to make more, simply because he makes! Had some old scrapbook paper (used for the background) that talks about boys and bugs...perfect! I showed my husband and he liked it except for the twine...he thought I should take it off! I almost always use some type of ribbon on my cards...It's my thing!

Don't forget to leave a comment for my Blog Candy below! The drawing will be held Wednesday night! Thanks for all the wonderful ideas! Lots to think about!!!! : )
