You Bring Us So Much Joy

I had these pictures of me with Ashlyn and when I thought of the title, I just had to add the pictures of Rick with her. She brings us SO much joy. I never dreamed how much I could love her.

Happy Fall

This card was totally an experiment. I was testing my sewing skills or trying to make them a little better. I messed the top of the card up, thus the half circle. I do like the colors of the card and the Stickles really adds something. The words are chipboard stickers. Flowers by Prima and Bazzill.


Sweet Treats

My latest layout is of Ashlyn eating ice cream -- or rather mostly the cones -- at the beach earlie this year. She didn't really get interested until you got down to the cone. Of course she could have whatever she wanted!

Side by Side

I love these pictures of Rick and Ashlyn together. I love pictures like this in general, but I think these show so well the bond between the two of them. And I am not much of a stamp person, but these Autumn Leave stamps (both the flourish and journaling stamp were in a package at Target for $1.99) were too tempting to pass up. Such a great deal. And I love how they look on this layout. People have been fussing at me for never putting my handwriting on my layouts, so now I feel like I can because I have lines to write on -- no more downhill writing! LOL.

Cuttlekids Cards

These new Cuttlekids dies are just so darn cute. I couldn't wait to try them. Here are cards I made with the Cuttlekid pig, lamb, and Fairy alphabet. I just love them!

With Sympathy

I just found out yesterday that a special someone from a messageboard I visit passed away. It made me very sad, and I decided to make this sympathy card to send to her family.

Stuck on Sticks

That's Ashlyn for you -- she loves sticks! So, I created this layout with just a few of the many pictures of her carrying a stick in her hand. She will carry a stick around and look for another, better stick at the same time. Sometimes we have to force her to lay down a stick because it is too big or too dangerous. But isn't she so cute!!! You can see the picture better if you click on it.
