We did a free photo shoot with a girl who lives on post who recently completed photography courses. I wanted to have pictures taken for my husband and my brother came with his puppy to take some pictures for my parents. We ended up with a lot of great photos. Here are just a few.

H2H Challenge

Well it has been a long time since I have posted on my blog. I really just needed a break from papercrafting. I needed a bridal shower card for this weekend and wanted something simple. So I used Bliss paper and embellishments. I also used pearls and the January stamp of the month. The only item on this card that is not CTMH is the ribbon. Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Card For My Niece

I made this birthday card for my niece whose birthday is coming up at the end of this month. She will be 11 this year and I can hardle believe were the time has gone. I used cocoa cardstock for the base and used my cricut to cut out circles in lagoon, pear and cotton candy cardstock. I also used bakers twine and a flower that I got at Michael's on clearance. (Sorry can not remember the brand)

Heart 2 Heart Sketch Challenge

This weeks challenge at Heart 2 Heart is a very simple but lovely sketch. I really like round cards but rarely make them. I used Mayberry paper, A Hop stamp set, Welcome Home stamp set and pearls. It felt good to make this card because I have been in a non-scrapbooking funk lately. Thanks for stopping by.

Nolan's Birthday Party

Nolan's birthday party was yesterday and I did a monkey theme because I call Nolan
my monkey. Each person took home a little bag filled with candies from the table. It was a fun day and even though it was sunny outside it sure was cold. Not like the warm spring day when I brought him home from the hospital. Enjoy your Sunday.

H2H Challenge- Three Times

This weeks challenge at Heart 2 Heart is to use three stamped images to make a scene. I used Splendor paper and the stamp set Beary Best. (I might be wrong about the name of the ss) My dads birthday is this week and so I made this card for him. I have been trying new ways to take pictures with my camera. Not sure this pic really came out too well. Just be sure to click on it to make it bigger. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Monday.

Heart 2 Heart Sponsor

I am one of the sponsors this month for Heart 2 Heart. Being a sponsor means that I could be a Guest Design Team member for one of the challenges. I chose this weeks color challenge because I really like the color combo of Gypsy, Creme Brulee with a touch of Black. My prize package includes a My Creations Art Board, Floral Tapastry Simply Snapshots, a package of Clear Shapes, the stamp set Something Splendid and two square clear cards and two scalloped circle clear cards with clear envelopes of course. Make sure to check out all the great challenges coming up in the month of March.

The Kissing Challenge

Heart 2 Heart had a challenge to use the Kissing Method. It is a little hard to see but I used the Solo H and stamped it with a background stamp on Outdoor Denim. Then I cut out the H. I used the new paper Lucky and random stamped on Desert Sand cardstock. The felt arrow is not CTMH. I made this card for my husband's 33rd birthday next month.

Claudia and Company- Recipe Challenge

Claudia and Company had a recipe challenge this week. The recipe is 1 tag, 2 buttons, ribbon and a sticker. I made a tag using my cricut and added two pieces of ribbon. The buttons are tied with brown sugar bakers twine and the first B in the word baby is a sticker. I think this is my last baby card for awhile. Check out this challenge at

H2H and MOJO #179

At Heart 2 Heart this week the challenge is to make something that references cold. This time of year when I think of cold I think of a nice warm cup of hot cocoa, tea or coffee. I made this card using the new Bliss paper and the sorbet paper is from Perfect Day. The stamps are A Sip and Warm Memories. For this card I used the MOJO Monday sketch for this week. Keep warm and have a great day.

Card Patterns and Claudia

I made this baby boy card for two different challenges this week. I used the sketch at Card Patterns. And the challenge at Claudia and Company is to make a boy card. My friend Jodi just had a brand new baby boy and this is for her and her family. Congrats Brown Family.

First off I must apologize for the very poor quality of these pictures. Make sure you click them to make them bigger. I think I need to borrow the book Photography for Dummies from my friend. I have never scrapbooked any of my wedding pictures and our 9th wedding anniversary is in April. That doesn't seem like a long time but wow we definately look younger. This Sweetheart paper pack is perfect for our wedding pictures. Thanks for stopping by.

Valentine's Day Dinner

Last night we had heart shaped pancakes for dinner with strawberries and bacon. Not fancy but we had a fancy dinner Sunday night with my brother and his girlfriend. We had a great day but we missed Daddy.

We will miss you

I know it is time for you to do your job, but it doesn't mean that we won't miss you everyday while you are gone. And even though this is our fourth deployment together saying goodbye to you never gets easier. I will miss the time we spend as a family doing simple things like eatting dinner together every night and watching TV together with a big bowl of popcorn. But mostly I will miss your smile and how you can always make me smile too. Please be safe because your family loves you and we are just not a family without you. Love, Angie, Nolan and Kellen XOXO
