Guess where I am going

Yep....Disneyland and California Adventure. (This layout was a few years ago) My daughter Jamie and her family are coming down from Utah to visit. We are going to spend a couple of days at the Magic Kingdom. I am so excited to be with the kids and Jamie. Oh and of course my son-in-law Jon. The kids are what make Disneyland fun for sure!
I will be posting again next week. I will have to share some pictures when I get back!

Aubrey's Birthday Card

Aubrey's favorite color is pink, so I had to make her a pink birthday card. On the darker pink I made score lines using my fiskras cutter and my stylus. I cut the round scallop with my spellbinder die cut. I used Autumn Leaves clear stamps for the hearts. I used colored pencils and blending them using gamsol.

I Love You Card

On this card I used Making Memories Grommets. The stamp image is from Autumn Leaves clear stamp set. I used colored pencils for the stamp image. I love you is a rub-on. The circles are distressed using the edge of my scissors. Inked edges. I did some paper piercing around the title. Layers are made by using pop dots.

Colored Pencil Card

This is my first attempt at using colored pencils. I love using them so far. I also love using the Gamsol for blending the colors. I used just some inexpensive colored pencils and Gamsol is paint thinner that I found at Michaels. I bought the Mona Lisa brand. It works really well. For the scallops I used spellbinders die cuts. The embossed background is the cuttlebug folder.

Mini Purse Album Wall Hanging

This is one way you can hang your mini purse albums. I made this from a wood plaque and I attached a coat hook onto the wood. I used Mod Podg to adhere the paper. The Cherish is a rub-on. Two of the purse straps are ribbon and one is beaded. I used Basic Grey paper for the albums along with cardstock.

Busy with the Babies

This is what I have been doing this weekend. Playing with my two grandbabies. They are both 4 months old. My daughter April and her kids, Mia and Ezekiel came down from Utah to visit. Mia is on the left and Dottie, who is my son's daughter, who lives only a few miles from me. Lots of Fun Ü
