Blog Hop & 2Sketches4U

Ok so I'm killing two birds with one stone. I have completed the project below for the Papertrey blog hop - creating a project using a CD case. I took the cover off the case and then put it back on in the reverse. This created a standing frame. I used today's sketch at 2Sketches4U for the layout.
I really love how the frame turned out!
Cardstock: 80# White Cougar; Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Garden of Life); Ink: Papertrey Ink (Lemon Tart, Sunrise Yellow), Versafine (Black); Other: American Crafts (Ric Rack), 3-D Foam Tape.

First day of school & a little something I whipped up

So crafting time has been very limited lately because we were preparing for our first day of school. Hooray!!! Oh to remember the new clothes and new pair of shoes for the first day of school. My mom always took a picture of us on the first day and I have continue that tradition. I have taken the picture in front of the front door and it's amazing to see the change from year to year.
Douglas is a 6th grader; boy he's really grown up and it seems like yesterday it was his first day of kindergarten! Reanne a Kindergartner, I can't believe it. Today was the first full day of school and it was like she's been going to school for months. What a milestone for her (and me).
Here's a little something I whipped up for a co-workers birthday. It's a really simple card but I love the way it turned out! I used my Nestabilities Petite Circle and Garden of Life stamps by Papertrey. The center of the flower was done by using a sponge dauber and pouncing it several times until I got the desired saturation.
