Card For MY Little Texan!!!

A little friend of mine has moved to TX. She is 3 so when I saw this set of stickers in the "American Girl Line" I knew I HAD to get them to make her a card.

Forever Young Birthday Cards

I have been playing with my "Forever Young" cartridge...I really like this cart. and see many possibilities for it. I've been trying to get ahead on my card making...I'm really bad about waiting until the last minute.....LOL so you might be seeing your birthday card.....

One of my favorite subjects to scrap is my Great-Niece Cadence. Cadence is the first of the next generation. Her Grandmother, my sister, is 10 years younger than I am so she was "my baby". Her Father is in the army, Josh is 6 months younger than my middle son. They were joined at the hip growing up so he is like a son to me. It is fun watching her grow, I see my sister and my nephew in her. One of the things she likes is to have her nails painted. When they are painted she will run up to people and say see my "prettys". I knew I wanted to get a picture of her tiny painted toes and make a LO for her book.

What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday.

Just my little bit of heaven in Sunny Florida.

This is my scrapping space. I started out with just a basket working on my kitchen table and would have to clean up everytime I was done so we could use the table to eat. I was then given a desk and that made way to my own "space". It is tucked into a corner of our Florida Room. It is in a common area of the house so a lot of "stuff" gets piled on it, mostly by me to be sorted or filed somewhere else. So I usually have to start out by cleaning off my desk so I can scrap. Right now I'm working on a project for a little friend of mine that is moving to TX. I have known her since she was born and she is now 3.5. They don't have family here so I know they will never be back to visit. I'm going to miss her! :(. This is a 8x8 album of memories from her first three years.

Yes my cat, Alice, does sleep on my scrapping chair so I do have to move her when I want to scrap. The racks on the wall that hold my plain colored cardstock was a "find" that I got for $5 when ACMoores closed. I got 2 of them and would have bought more if I had the wall space for them. I like having things close by so my desk may look cluttered but I know where everything is and it works just fine for me.


I've been getting back in the swing of scrapping, this is from a little 8X8 album that I am making. The cuts..."Laugh" and the little girls are from "A Child's Year". I have been using that cart a lot in this project. The picture of the girls running is printed twice then the girls are cut from one and then pop-dotted. This is the frist time I have used this technique and I am really likeing how it came out.
