Kettle Korn

Layout I did for Posh Design. I used the sketch challenge # 14 on their forum. Basic grey June Bug paper is my paper of choice for this to help brighten up my pics. One of the many fabulous things you can find at the apple orchard is fresh kettle korn.

Halloween is around the corner!!

Here is a card I made for Halloween!! It won't be long now! I used some Cosmo Cricket that I had left from last year.

Oh Boy!!!

I have the hardiest time making cards for boys!! My nephew's 4th birthday was this weekend and this is what I came up with for it. There are no flowers, and buttons, or foofoo stuff on it. I think it works!

Game Day

Here's a picture of Ariel and one of her cheer friends at the game on Saturday. What a beautiful day for a game. Edison won both 7th and 8th grade against East Moline. 7th grade blew them out of the water. 8th grade was alot closer and a longer game. One of our players had to have the paramedics called because he broke his leg. Hope he is doing well. Now he'll have a cast on his arm and leg!!! Poor kid.

This is from Ariel's first football game that she got to cheer at as a Jr High cheerleader. The sketch I used was one from 52sketches52weeks

Thinking of U

This is a card I made for my sister. She started U of I 2 1/2 weeks ago. The first week she did not get any mail and made sure to tell me about it. The second week she got 2 cards in the mail (neither of which were from me). She really let me know about that!

Kim's sketch @ Posh Designs

This is my take on Kim's sketch over @ Posh Designs. I used some sassafras pattern papers, some ribbon. I also embossed the stamp on the front.

Ariel got a new computer and she cut a hole for the cat to get in and out. Well Luis wanted to play in it to. I had to do something with this pictures since it was so cute!! This is a layout for Posh Designs. They carry this Cosmo Cricket line along with tons of others. Go and check out the Posh Store to see what other fabulous lines they carry.

Photo session with my hubby!!

My husband did a photo session for me today. The piture I had on my profile was way old....so I needed a new one. I wanted a urban, grunge type of look. My new profile pic is one of them. We went downtown Davenport and looked for run down buildings and found a good one in an alley. There are a couple more I really like but they are not ready for me to upload. I also climbed on my first train today and took some pics on it also.
