Mom's/son poem

I did a laylout for JS May's sketch challenge on motherhood. I am with my son, Brandon. He was 11 at the time and I was 34. My Parents renewed their wedding vows January 2000.

Recipe swap

On JS, we are doing a "slow cooker" recipe swap. This is the first one I did. I kept the cards simple. I used a gingham background, red ribbon. The buttons are from MS button punch (I love that punch). The "X" are paper scraps I pulled through to make it look like the buttons are sewn on.

Some of my work

I had a challenge at J.S....we did a layout on an illness I suffered from. This is a poem/letter to my husband, of Fibro. The next photo is a card I did for my brother-in-law, Adam. The colors are purple/gold, but they don't show up as well.

Rocky's Rocky deciding to sit on the keyboard and got in the way of my typing. Sorry picture so dark...took it w/ my cell phone as if I got up to get my camera, he would have moved....I will have to do a layout on this one...onery cat! Don't want to mess with him....he likes to bite when he is mad and that HURTS! lol

Mom's day cards and Grad card

I could not sleep so I finished my Mom's day and Grad is almost 5am. The two cards in the same photo are for my MIL and Step-MIL. The grad card is for my nephew, Joshua, who is graduating from college. (Ok need to move....his 25 pound body just decided to sit on my arm and the mouse/keyboard). Joshua has his bachelor degree and just received a full ride scholarship to University of Riverside for his PHD. I am so proud of him!
On his card, I used the toilet tissue technique that Aymee did a tutorial on her blog. The Moms cards I used the ribbon technique she used. I like that technique. Thanks Aymee...these were fun to make!

New techniques

These two photos are techniques that I learned From Aymee. the first image is the card with the ribbon that she gave us the tutorial and also a tutorial of using bathroom tissue imprimting to cuttle bug embosse folders and Fiskars texture boards. I don't have a sentiment yet for the completed card and I am deciding in how to use the tissue pieces on the card. These were a lot of fun!
