{A Scrapbook Page - My Baby Boy}

I can't believe how fast my "baby" is growing! Cameron was just a few weeks old in this picture, and now he is 19 months! It is scary how fast time goes by. This page is 8x8 which happens to be my favorite size of scrapbook page to make. For me 8x8 is so much easier, and I don't feel nearly as over-whelmed as tackling a 12x12 canvas. All of the supplies I used to make this page are from Stampin' Up! except for the blue buttons. Thank you for visiting my blog and have a wonderful day!

{Sweet Birthday Wishes}

I hope this post finds you all doing well. Life is still kind of crazy right now, but aside from that things are peachy. The card I am posting today is not the type of card I usually make, but while visiting yard sales a few weeks ago I bought a pack of the cutest felt cupcake embellishments for .25 and I couldn't wait to use them on a card. I just LOVE finding great deals! This card is simple, layers, corner punches, and an Inkadinkado clear stamp set. The ribbon is from a ribbon pack from Costco. I love it when I can find ribbon that matches perfectly! I have a few cards and projects that I would LOVE to post, but I have to mail them first. hehe. Check back soon to see what I made! Hugs!

{Start Each Day With a Smile}

Hello friends! Yes, I am still here, just been busy with life, and all of the fun (and not so fun) challenges that come along with it. I hope all of you have been having a great summer. We just got home from a 2 week visit out to Texas and Oklahoma to visit my family. It was so nice to see everyone. I have so much catching up to do with my blog duties, and visiting all of the amazing blogs I have featured on my site!

My card today features the retired Stampin Up Set "Wild About You". I used my Cuttlebug, paper piercer, and Janome Sew mini to make this card. I am happy with how it turned out, but I especially love the sentiment. It's great isn't it?

I also have a deal to offer my blog readers. My all time favorite adhesive "Duck Brand Adhesive" that used to be carried by Wal-Mart and Joann's is no longer available, and from what I have been able to gather from other card making sites it has been replaced with a less then satisfactory replacement that is nothing like the original. While on vacation I stopped by my former hometown Wal-Mart and to my great surprise on a back endcap was several packages of the 4 pack boxes of Duck Adhesive! Apparently there are no scrapbookers in Southeast Oklahoma. LOL. Well, none that love Duck Adhesive as much as I do anyways. So if you would like any of the 4 pks (I have around 20 extra 4 packs) let me know. I am selling them for $9.00 each. Shipping is not included but I will ship the cheapest way possible. Here is a picture of the adhesive:

I hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend!!
