Happy Easter

It is a rainy day here in Michigan this wonderful Easter morning.  Not sure if any young ones will be outside looking for eggs today.
In a couple hours we will be eating a yummy dinner with my husband's side of the family.  We have a newborn baby niece in our family.  Will be cute to see her all in her little Easter dress.

I want to wish all my friends a very Happy Easter.

Birth stone Besties (January)

Oh my gosh, I love this new little Birth Stone Bestie that Sherri Baldy has created.  She posted it out today
and I couldn't wait to make a card with it.  It already has the garnet birthstone for January and the flower for January and the word January on the base of it.  I just added my mom's birth date to it.

If you want to get it for yourself here is the link

This is my card.  I am just learning how to use Copic Markers. I have a long way to go, but it sure is fun
practicing with them.

Small gift bag with matching card

Easy 10 minute project.  I used an svg file to cut this little big.  I am using Echo Park paper from the Little boy line.  Anne Luper carries this at her store Paper Patch Crafts.  My son turns 23 this year
and I want him to remember he'll always be my little boy.

pink adhesive flatback pearls
pink butterflies
2 brass Minnie and Mickey pins (backs taken off)
Spellbinders flower

Martha Stewart corner punch
The cake is cut with the Cricut machine using Surecutsalot

birthday card and scrapbook layout for my son

After creating a birthday card for my 23 year old son yesterday, I thought I would scrap a few photos of him as a baby. Wow where did the time go? That top photo is my favorite, looks like he is just waiting for me to leave the room so he can figure out his escape plan. lol I used little boy by Echo park paper and stickers found at Paper Patch Crafts. Thanks for taking a peak.

Card for my son's 23rd birthday. he'll always be my little boy. I used Echo Park little boy paper collection and stickers. You can get these from Paper Patch crafts.
